Greetings from 3 Minute Games, Headquarters of the Lifeline Universe! We’re excited to be embarking on this journey with you.
Our standard gamebook is roughly 10-12 chapters long, and if accepted, we’ll provide all the details you need to get writing. Lifeline games should be built around choices that will resonate with players emotionally. Think trust and betrayal, life and death, short vs. long term reward. Send us a sample of what you can do and we’ll use that to evaluate whether we move forward!
We take tremendous pride in establishing and maintaining long-term relationships with our partners. Our partners’ success directly correlates to our own success. Whether it turns into a full-time authoring job or a side gig / passion, it's a great opportunity!
We are thrilled that you have compelling stories to share with the world! Here's some guidance and the steps to take to see if you have a place as an author in the Lifeline Universe.
Anything you submit must be 100% made by you and not include anything else from existing artwork, people, builds, brands, or other protected material, or include profanity or lewd material. By submitting your writing sample you agree to our terms and conditions, provided in Exhibit A.
As you consider various stories, it may be helpful to know a bit about the current Lifeline customer base. The graph in Exhibit C shows the result of a survey of Lifeline players on their game category and genre interests.
