This is guide for creating new variants of the game Premise and includes files for you to quickly create your own templates.

About Premise

Premise is a lightweight worldbuilding game in which players simultaneously create different parts of a world and build onto each others ideas. The game is built around templates that players fill out in parallel, rotating the templates after each prompt and continuing the story. You can find the original three versions at Premise: Setting, Character, Plot.

A round of premise lasts 30 minutes and can scale from 2 players to an infinite number as all play happens in parallel.

Creating New Variants

Premise is highly adaptable to different uses and genres. Possible new directions can include: magical artifacts, secret societies, enemy plots, side quests, space stations; all of which could be incorporated into another game.

This guide includes four different filetypes for easy hacking:

There's also an Affinity Designer file for creating an Itch friendly logo.
