Title: We're making a book
Post by: MaxTemkin on December 06, 2011, 12:31:29 AM
Hey HvZ players, we're working on a book about Humans vs. Zombies that will explain what the game is all about, its history, and feature writing, photos and art from games all over the world.

We are looking for writing and artwork that reflects the history, culture and aesthetic of Humans vs. Zombies overall as well as the unique dynamics of individual games.

WRITERS: Send us your HvZ-inspired writing in the form of essays, nonfiction narratives, short fiction, puzzles and mission storylines, and whatever else you’ve got! Please keep it under 5,000 words.

ARTISTS & DESIGNERS: Send us your HvZ-inspired artwork. We want to see promotional flyers, photography, paintings and drawings, mission props, and whatever else you’ve got!

Send submissions to [email protected] by Feb 01, 2012.

I've got my narrative typed up and ready to send. Is there any information specifically that you need submitted with it?

Good call, why don't you list your name (alias), school (location of play), and the games of HvZ that you have under your belt. Feel free to send any other information that you might want linked with the submission.

Anything and everything I've posted on the website is fair game, as well as the detailed memoirs I have of each game on Facebook (friend me, Brad LaPlante at Truman, if you can't find 'em). I do believe they're the most thorough day-to-day accounts of any game that I have ever encountered, certainly the most thorough at Truman's. I'll also talk to some of our other players for their blogs about the same incidents, we could recreate an entire game of HvZ from multiple perspectives.

This sounds like a great idea. I'm new to the group and that would be soooo helpful to newbies like me.

This has been up for awhile now, and I couldn't help wondering if this is still happening/open for submissions?

I ask 'cause I've got a ridiculous pile of HvZ inspired stuff (essays, poems, stories, photos, missions, game outlines, advertisements, etc.) I can round up now that didn't exist/I didn't have time to pull together when the initial call went out.

I heard that you guys are mostly looking for drawings and photos at this point. Is that so?

Will start tossing stuff into my dropbox for easy compiling. XP
