It’s once again time to register for IntroComp!
The requirements of IntroComp are deceptively simple: All entrants must submit the beginning of a new, never before seen work of IF that is not yet complete and for which the ending is somewhat uncertain. The introduction can be as short or as long as the author likes, so long as it is 1) a working, playable game and 2) interactive fiction.
Note that only introductions to games which are slated for non-commercial release may be entered in the competition. (In email, the organizer emphasized that IntroComp “is not a venue for people aspiring to make money.”) Even if you intend to distribute your game for free, if you intend to make money from the game via advertisements (e.g. via our Hosted Games program), IntroComp may not be the right competition for your game.
If you’re interested participating, you’ll need to submit your Intent to Enter by June 15th (just a few days away!) and submit your polished introduction on July 15th. The competition is open and welcoming to games written in ChoiceScript, including last year’s first-place winner, Resonance.
