This week, Twitter expanded their tweet length to 280 characters and @cartwheel launched a 280 character game jam.

My submission is a game meant to be played on Twitter purely using animated GIFs. Here are the rules:


Decades after the apocalypse, literacy is gone but Twitter remains

All chat is w/ GIFs, no text

Each player has a resource the other needs

Can you establish enough trust to meet IRL and trade goods, thus ensuring survival?


I received some great feedback and you see folks playing it in this thread.

This was a fun competition and you can check out the other great submissions at the #280rpg hashtag.
