This page is about the 2007 competition. For the 2008 competition about the same theme, see Commonplace Book Competition.


Executive Summary: The goal of this project is to develop an online exhibtion of interactive art, stories, and games based on H.P. Lovecraft's Commonplace Book, on the 70th anniversary of his death. Extensions to the project may include transcripts, screenshots, and computer kiosks that would be set up in exhibitions, conferences, and festivals being held in 2007-2008; and a limited edition CD-ROM catalog of the works submitted.

This competition ran until June 15th, 2007. The organizer is Peter Nepstad.

Only the five games in English were eligible for "Best in Show". Voting deadline was June 30th, 2007. The winner of Best in Show was Dead Cities, with Handyman Wanted as a close runner-up.
