As all the IFComp participants wind down their coding, I’m getting an itch to do something fun (besides play games in a few weeks).
It occurred to me that doing a Speed-IF in our new world of ChatGPT, Claude 2, and other LLM variants could dramatically increase the speed of developing simple games in under two hours.
So, here’s the challenge. I’m going to host (on ifMUD, where else?) a speed-if some time in the first week of October. I’ll pick a day and reply back to this thread.
Your goal for now is to pick an LLM and play around with it to see how you can leverage for IF development using whatever platform you choose. If you want to use one of the open-source tools and teach it your platform, that’d be really cool.
But the day I host the madlib session, you will have two hours (we work on an honor system here) to complete a story with the provided theme and madlib components.
I’ve already played around with ChatGPT 4 enough to know it can write Inform 7 code that compiles. The trick is to know the domain well enough to direct it.
See you all in about 3-4 weeks!
