Everyone has a story to tell. Locked somewhere deep down inside, it waits until the right moment to be told. Whether you’re gathering around a table with friends, reading a book, or watching your favourite movie, we thrive on discovering the next great story. Stories of morality, growth, depravity, redemption, love and action. Stories told visually in film, television, video games, comic books and more where the action plays as much a role as character and plot (if not more). We are a society raised on explosions, car chases, fierce debates, fistfights, gunplay, gritty interrogations and duels provided in the comfort of our own homes. From here, many aspire to become the next generation of storytellers. For those who dare to dream out loud, this game is for you.
ScreenPlay: The Rehearsal Edition is a free playtest edition of an upcoming tabletop roleplaying game where imagination and co-operation allow everyone a chance to bring their ultimate stories to life. Designed to emulate the screenwriting experience, this game allows players to take on the challenge as one of a team of Writers working under the guidance of a Director keeping the script engaging and exciting. Built on a premise of simple rules and rapid-fire play, this game will allow you to try out new plots, characters and stunts you’ve always dreamed about but never had the chance to share with others. You can even use ScreenPlay to present a remake of your favourite story or correct one you wish has been better with a new cast and the “proper” vision.
Not only can you help make ScreenPlay better with your input and surveys, you can also collect points to unlock individual rewards, bonus content, even win one of five free print copies of the ultimate edition of the game, ScreenPlay: The Director’s Cut. Receive updated copies of the finished product until playtesting wraps up January 2016 right to your account, join the ScreenPlayers Guild community, and so much more. Your next story begins here!
