Vote in IntroComp 2012

Posted by: Dan Fabulich | Comments (12)

Back in June we posted a link to IntroComp, an annual interactive-fiction competition in which entrants submit only the first part of their games. Players vote for the winning game.

The introductions are now available and can be found here in a single zipped file:
http://www.allthingsjacq.com/IntroComp12

There are six contestants this year, of which two were written in ChoiceScript. As always, we recommend playing as many of the games as possible before voting.

  • The Bafflingly Casual Adventures of No One of Significant Import, by Robb Kinnison
  • Belief, by Justin de Vesine
  • Compliance, by Christopher Conley (this game requires a Glulxe interpreter like Gargoyle)
  • GENESIS, by ML (this game requires a “git” interpreter)
  • Resonance, by Nereida Scales
  • Wasteland, by Taylor Melton
  • Please note that it is the expectation of the IntroComp organizers that no one will canvass for votes on the authors’ behalf. It’s inappropriate to post voting recommendations on our forums or anywhere else.

    It is furthermore hoped that you’ll vote in good faith and on an introduction’s merit, as opposed to a show of support for a particular author, genre, or platform. In other words, please don’t just vote for the ChoiceScript games! Try some of the other stuff to see if you like it. All of the other games are parser-based interactive fiction; here’s a handy cheat sheet for how to play games like that.

    The voting deadline is midnight Eastern time on August 25, 2012. You’ll need to register before you can login and vote online.

    Please vote for your favorite intoductions! May the best game win!

      I really hope Choice of Games tries to pick up Resonance.. I was sucked into that game before I could realize what was happening.
