Covid-19 announcement 

We are still accepting game submissions throughout the period of social distancing that we are now experiencing. 

However, because we are unable to playtest in person we ask that all game submissions during this period include a Tabletop Simulator or Tabletopia version of your game or some other way to play remotely.

If the submission does not include a way to play remotely it will not be played during this period but will be considered after.

Official Alley Cat Games Submission page

 

For the best chance of successfully submitting your game to us, please read this detailed description BEFORE filling in the form below

We ARE currently accepting games submissions for:

Dice Hospital Sequels and/or spiritual successors

Big Box Games

Small Games

Mass Market Games

In detail:

Dice Hospital Sequels and/or spiritual successors

A Dice Hospital sequel and/or spiritual successor submission will be thematically or mechanically similar to Dice Hospital

Thematically - an example of this could be 'Dice Hospital: Duel/the card game/roll & write etc.

Mechanically - an example of this is our upcoming Dice Theme Park - where the dice are the customers of the theme park, in a similar way they are the patients of the hospital.

 

Big Box Games

Games that are the size of Dice Hospital, Chocolate Factory, or Tungaru.

It's important that these games have a great table presence and a unique selling point.

They will also typically feature an interesting use of components

An example of this is Eternal Palace, which was submitted to us by Steven Aramini through the below form. In Eternal Palace, the players visit locations to gain inspiration to complete their painting, and completing the painting ends the game as each painting is then presented to the emperor. The painting also stands on the table and acts as a screen for the player's pieces,

 

Small games

This category includes Mint Tin Games, Micro Games and Pocket Games.

Games like Pocket Sub, Pocket Pharma, Cat Café, Tinderblox, and Kittin.

They should have a very low component count but have a high fun-factor!

They should generally play in about 30 minutes.

 

'Mass-Market' games

These have a very low rules overhead. These should be easy to grasp for non-hobbyist audiences. We are particularly interested in dexterity games 

We’re expanding into this area with Kittin, Tinderblox, and Simon’s Cat and we’re very keen to publish more mass-market games. This category also includes 'family' games.

We will also consider games outside of these categories! We're particularly interested in games that have the following:

Unique pieces/physical components

A strong mechanic & thematic link

Dice orientated games (preferably engine building)

Games with a strong story-driven element

We will consider other games too but we will NOT consider:

Deck-building games (where deck-building is the main mechanic)

Roll & Write games (where Roll & Write is the main mechanic)

Political Games

'Take That' style games

Cards against humanity clones

 

Thanks for taking the time to submit your game!

 

P.S. We give special consideration to submissions that have a video and will almost always at least watch a video if the game meets the above criteria, for the best chances of success, please attach a video where possible!
