7th Annual New Year's Minicomp


Look at the time, it's my pleasure to announce the

7th annual New Year's Minicomp!

For those unfamiliar with this, a short explanation as to the motivation behind it. It's meant to offer people a chance at writing a small work of IF at the end of the year. This year, we follow our tradition of having next to no rules:

1) Write whatever game you like, in any system you like. (Take note of the CF announcement below).

2) Finish any project you have been working on.

Any approach that lies between the two is also okay.

If you're thinking "So am I allowed to..." the answer is „yes, absolutely, please do“. To make it clear: You have to work very hard to come up with something I won't allow as an entry. (If you scribble a 3 room CYOA on a piece of paper and mail it to me, I'll consider it a qualified entry. If you write an automated haiku generator, sure, why not. Anything is allowed.)

If you're in need of some inspiration the IF Name Generator which can be found here :

Games should be submitted to marius.ts.muellerSPAM@gmail.com by 23:59 GMT+1, Jan 3rd 2014.

The games will be played on Clubfloyd on January 5th (Thanks, Jacq!) So, if you want your game to be CF compatible, choose your format accordingly. According to ifwiki:

ClubFloyd games absolutely must be programmed in ADRIFT, AGT, Choice Script, Glulx, Hugo, Inform, or TADS (2 or 3) because those are the only games that run on our bot, Floyd.

Thank you and , most importantly, have fun!
