Girl Genius?

With Mad Science as the theme, the idea of a Girl Genius related game is too obvious to ignore. How would people feel about that? The Foglios seem to be pretty tolerant towards fan fiction, and have even published some of it on their own site.

Hmm, sounds like it could be allowed... I would definitely try contacting them about it though.
Okay, I've sent them a message, but they no doubt get a lot of mail, so it's anybody's guess whether I'll get a reply in time to make a difference. I'll press on in the meantime on the assumption that it's okay.
Just got a reply from Studio Foglio -- they're totally okay with the idea.

So, full steam ahead!


Hello Greg,

Not only OK but encouraged!
For extra bonus appreciation, you can include a mention of our comic and our URL.

If it's something you're allowed to let other people in on (not exclusive to your contest or anything) we would also love to see your game once you've finished it - just for fun.

Thank you for your enthusiasm,

Alice Bentley
Assistant to the Professors

    It's all totally non-commercial and purely for fun. The
