Lindenbaum Prize update

The Lindennbaum Prize is sponsored by Peter Agaopv, contributor to Lloyd of Gamebooks and owner of  Augmented Reality Adventure Games who is very generously providing the first prize.

The Lindenbaum Prize is also sponsored by Crumbly Head Games who is providing free licenses to The Gamebook Authoring Tool as prizes and also has a free version of the Gamebook Authoring Tool that goes up to 100 sections.

Many thanks to Tammy Badowski for donating her time to the Lindenbaum Prize.

Entries have now closed for the 2020/2021 Lindenbaum Prize for Short gamebook Fiction. Sixteen authors have been accepted for this year's competition and their entries are currently being adapted to the standard competition PDF format.

We have an amazing array of gamebook goodness with 16 entrants!

It should be noted that as the number of gamebooks has exceeded 14, the competition rules now require an extension on time for the close of voting date will be extended to the 5th April and winner announcement dates to be extended to the 14th April (2 week’s delay). Due to the large number of entries submitted and my decision to hyperlink the books there must also be a short extension of time for all entries to be properly converted to the standard competition format. Due to this delay all entries will be available for free download and review from the 15th February.

All information regarding this year's comp including full entry guidelines, competition schedule and prize details can be found at Lloyd of Gamebooks: The Lindenbaum prize for short gamebook fiction 2021/2022
