I've heard that one minor IF event or the other is just over, so it's time to announce:

THE ULTIMATE NOT NUMBERED NEW YEAR'S SPEED IF

(Yes, I do realize it has become more of a Minicomp. Deal with it.)

For those unfamiliar with this, the motivation behind it is to offer people a chance at writing a small work of IF at the end of the year. Traditionally, the rules have been very loosely defined. This year, we shun our humble Speed-IF origins even more and offer these two variants:

1) Take an example, any example from the I7 Documentation and expand it into a fullblown game. This has Emily's explicit permission. (The idea was proposed by Juhana Leinonen).

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

Any approach that lies between the two is also okay.

If you're thinking "So am I allowed to..." the answer is „yes“.

If you're in need of some inspiration, Juhana has also updated his IF Name Generator which can be found here :
http://nitku.net/if/namegenerator/.

Start planning and coding no sooner than December 1st.

Games should be submitted to marius.ts.muellerSPAM@gmail.com by 23:59 GMT+1, Jan 1st 2013. Extended to January 3rd!

The games will be played on Clubfloyd on January 6th (Thanks, Jacq!) So, if you want your game to be CF compatible, choose your format accordingly.

Thank you and , most importantly, have fun!

I guess that's what you get for copy and pasting your own text. Thanks, Finn, corrected.

Hoho, there are so many possibilities here. I'm thinking Transmutations with 10x more items and puzzles, but I might Change My Mind.

I bags Stately Gardens.

(I already made three changes to Revenge of the Fussy Table and posted it online, but that doesn't count.)

Also, I know last year was penultimate, and this year is ultimate, does this mean that next year there won't be a New Years Speed IF?

I bet it will be post-ultimate.

Ultimate not numbered means the next one will be either numbered or called I WAS JUST KIDDING SPEED IF.

I briefly entertained hopes of an NPC-heavy romance plot corresponding to an I7 example, a name-generator title and the mechanics of indie RPG Shooting the Moon, but have now resorted to something based on a very tiny example, ridiculously expanded.

I was strongly tempted to make a game based on three examples drawn at random; but then I drew 184, 246 and 415, and now I'm somewhat less tempted.
