As part of the new Fallen London sponsorship, The Kitschies are also proud to announce a new category – the Invisible Tentacle, for progressive, intelligent and entertaining fiction that is natively digital.
The Kitschies’ Director, Glen Mehn, explains:
“We don’t know what it looks like, to be quite honest. But we think that it needs to be ergodic, pushing the boundaries of story and exploring what the medium can offer – more than a simple ebook. It’ll be different, new and use digital in new ways, but it’ll still tell stories. Good ones.”
The Invisible Tentacle will be judged by a panel of five experts selected from design, technology, video, gaming and events. The winner will receive £500 and an iconic Tentacle trophy.
We are proud to announce that we have a new sponsor – Fallen London, the browser game which drags you to a dark and mysterious alternate London where nothing is as it seems.
Alexis Kennedy, the Chief Narrative Office of Failbetter Games, the creators of Fallen London says: “The values of The Kitschies are exactly our values – they stand for everything we appreciate and everything we want to promote. Particularly tentacles.”
Fallen London takes place in a Gothic, post-apocalyptic London under, lit by gas-lamps and powered by fermented mushroom juice. The Escapist Awards’ Browser Game of the Year, Fallen London has been praised by the New Yorker as “Far and away the best browser game of today”.
