My name is Ray Li, and I am a 16-year-old high school student. For a class in Critical Thinking, we are required to complete a semester-long, independent-study project. For my project, I chose to finish and market a board game which I have been working on for a while. The game is called Lineage. It is a two-player, abstract strategy game.

My website is I would appreciate if you could visit it and give me some feedback on what you think of the game and the site.


What a neat project! It'll definitely teach you a lot, that's for sure. :slight_smile:

I'm afraid we're not currently accepting game submissions, but I can give you some advice to help you along. First off, you should always check the company's web site to see if there are instructions on how to submit your idea, before emailing or otherwise contacting the company.

The biggest reason for this is that most times you'll need to sign and mail in a release form of some kind before the company can even look at your game idea from a legal standpoint ... the form basically just says that looking at the game doesn't oblige the company to actually publish it. Many companies have to throw out a submission without acknowledging receipt if this form isn't included with it.

The other reason is that every company has different procedure for accepting submissions ... for example, when we ARE accepting, we ask for a 1-page summary first, then we'll request a prototype if we like it. Others go straight to the prototype, or have some other requirements. You'll want to submit it in the correct way, to make it as easy as possible for the company to review your game.

I hope this helps, and wish you the best of luck!

Hey, thanks for the suggestions, however, I am probably going to try and self-manufacture instead of licensing.

Please let me know when Atlas is accepting games, though. I may try and license as an alternative if manufacturing doesn't work out.
