Interactive Fiction Competition

Ever want to write an interactive fiction game? Want to play lots of short interactive fiction games?

Then head on over to:
http://ifcomp.org/comp04/index.html

For Interactive Fiction Competition 2004.

Apparently, for a number of years these people have been holding an interactive fiction competition. Entries are due in September. Judging begins October 1.

The "Enter Competition" page has links to IF creation tools.

You can sign up either as an author or a judge. I'm thinking of turning either my 1st or 3rd nanowrimo attempts into IF for that competition.

Oh, you didn't know about that? I've been meaning to enter for years, and it looks like I might actually finish an entry for this year.

Wow, that's great! Do you have any recommendations with regards to tools? My previous IF experience has been limited to a few years of tinyMUSHing about 10 years ago. yowsa!

I'm working in Inform, using Gnu Emacs (with Inform mode) as my editor. I'm debating whether to try to use Onyx Ring or just go with the standard 6.11 library.

BTW, wanna beta test my game when I get a draft working?

Possibly.... what's it about? And when do you think you'll have the working draft?

I entered the comp in 2000 and was planning on entering again last year, but didn't finish my entry. I think this year I will finish up the game (I refuse to call it a "work," or a "piece" or anything else of the sort... it's a game, damn it) I didn't last year, called Pestilence. It's a very dark, morbid game about trying to escape from a quarantined town, preferably with your various family members (crippled father, pregnant wife, infant son), all of whom are obviously of limited mobility.

So, yeah, expect to see me in the comp. If you're going to enter, I recommend Inform, but a lot of people like TADS. Both are semi-easy.
