It's that time again.

It's my great pleasure to announce another New Year's Minicomp!

Didn't write anything this year yet? Have a project you meant to finish? Why not submit it to the

Eleventh Hour New Year's Minicomp

For those unfamiliar with it, this comp is 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. ( [Anything illegal or in bad faith will be disqualified. Also, no rerelease of already released games, unless it's changed in some major way. No refunds.]

If you're in need of some inspiration the IF Name Generator which can be found here : 
http://nitku.net/if/namegenerator/.

Games should be submitted to marius.ts.muellerSPAM@gmail.com by 23:59 GMT+1, Jan 4th 2017.

The games will be played on Clubfloyd on January 7th (Thanks, Jacq!) So, if you want your game to be CF compatible, choose your format accordingly. According to ifwiki:

Quote:
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!

I am going to try to do something. Whether I manage to do so is another question.

I was definitely interested in doing something for this. I even put it on my main calendar. Then my laptop crashed harder than the Big Bopper.

Spoiler: show
Too soon?

I happen to be making a game but... it's not IF by any useful definition - it's a retro graphical boulder-pushing game along the lines of Rockford or Boulder Dash. With cheese. It's a small fun thing that I'm planning to release fairly quietly over the holidays. But if it needs the numbers and you want to expand the entry conditions, I'll submit it. (If it's done.)

I am definitely considering it. If so, it will most definitely be done in Twine.
Happy holidays everyone. :)

Have something in ink which will probably be done in time - it's quite linear though, so might not be as fun to play in clubfloyd :/
