IntroComp 2011

Posted by: Dan Fabulich | Comments (4)

Writing a game in ChoiceScript is easy, but, like any work of fiction, finishing it can be hard. If you want to try your hand at writing just the first part of a game in ChoiceScript, consider submitting your game to IntroComp 2011, an annual interactive-fiction competition in which entrants submit only the first part of their games. Players vote for the winning game.

The requirements of IntroComp are deceptively simple: All entrants must submit the beginning of a new, never before seen work of IF. This 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.

[…]

Oh, and in order to win you not only have to enter, but also finish your game. You will have one year (until June, 2012) to do so. No completed game? No money – and somewhere in the world, a fairy dies.

If you’d like to participate in IntroComp, you’ll need to submit your intent to enter on the IntroComp website before May 31, 2011, and submit your introductory snippet by June 30, 2011.

We hope there are a lot of ChoiceScript IntroComp entries this year! Good luck!

    Huzzah! A bit of extra motivation to finish…SOMETHING! I keep going through phases of interest in the projects I’ve started – there’s no middle ground, I’m either super-absorbed in it and excited or I’m completely indifferent. Hopefully this sort of incentive will give me my motivation back! Thanks guys!
