judges and participants for my Choose Your Own Adventure competition wanted! every participant receives a freebie!
you don’t have to enter a completely new game as long as long as you wrote it and it hasn’t participated in any competition before. don’t be a cheater! [emote];)[/emote]
length and genre of the game doesn’t matter - the only important thing is that it’s CYOA.
the games will be rated by a jury rather than public voting, judges are supposed to have completed at least one game of IF (any style, not only CYOA)
so if you scribble down a game in 5 minutes that has only one branch you still get a prize - how can you lose! [emote]:)[/emote]
winners get nice Metallica stuff!!!
PM or email me!
full rules below
I must receive your game (source code not required!) by email or pm by 17:00 GMT on Sunday, May 30, 2010.
Your game must be a Choose your own adventure game playable with an interpreter, preferably Frotz. In the event that the CYOA-ness of a game is disputed by at least one jury member, the jury (see below) will decide whether it is eligible to participate in the competition.
The game must be written in the English language to an amount bigger than 50%. There is no required length or any other requirement. A game of any nature can participate.
All games that have never before participated in any competition of any kind are eligible to take place in this one. In other words it is not important when they have been written. Just be honest!
- Game Submission Procedure
After extensively testing your game, send me an email or pm including the following:
- Your real name
- A short description of your work
- Indicate the programming language/version in which the game was programmed.
- Attach a copy of your game in whatever format you’d like it to be distributed
- Up until the submission deadline you can send updated versions of your game.
- No more than five game submissions per author.
- Veto right
I have the final say on any aspect of the competition.
The first four people to apply are recruited into the jury. Jury rules will be discussed internally. If less than four people apply for jury duty, just those who did perform the voting. The jury will judge the submitted games via a point system discussed internally.
Everybody who has written at least one game of Interactive fiction in his life and can prove this is accepted into the jury. Every jury member receives a free CD or tape (as below).
Every participant receives a free CD or cassette! (participant can choose between a limited selection of stuff)
1st prize: Metallica - Dutch Magnetic double CD set
2nd prize: Metallica - Pounding out aggression CD
3rd prize: Metallica - One 7" single
Don’t submit games you didn’t write yourself! I mean that should go without saying…
