(an interactive fiction gamejam)

Phase 1: Write a set of reviews for five games that do not and possibly cannot exist in our universe. Send the list to my email by December 13th, midnight EST.

Phase 2: You will receive a randomized list of five imaginary games created by other participants in the jam. You are to pick one (or more) and make

a sequel
a prequel
a fan fiction
a critical response game
a sidequel
a remake
a demake
an artifact of some genre category never before seen by humans
or if you are feeling bold and it is even practical, duplicate the game as described.

Ooh, I had a good one that I posted a couple of weeks ago in the author's forum. Now I just need 4 more...

Awwwwwwwww yeah.

I will see how my imagination fares. It's been a little overburdened lately.

This sounds wonderfully horribly awesome.

(Horrible = headbanging how to make a game that is easy to describe but hard to code; wonderful in all other ways, especially making wacky games the world has not yet seen)

Very interesting but also quite a bit more complicated than the usual comp.

I assume the 'cannot actually exist in our universe' part is not meant to be taken literally, as you do mention the possibility for a bold contestant to actually try to duplicate the game as described.

Anyway am SO tempted to make an attempt even though my IF-making skills aren't yet adequate AND I am worried I won't have the time...

I have two suggestions BTW:
1)For phase 2, allow parodies. Or is that already included in 'critical response'?
2)Provide a couple of example reviews for phase 1, so we know that exactly is meant? Hopefully that won't step on the toes of someone who comes up with similar ideas on their own...
There's the walkthroughs, but that's somewhat different conceptually.

Well, it's the next obvious step from Speed-IF Jacket, I suppose. [emote]:)[/emote]

I'm not the organizer, maga, but I would say that if anyone is justified in just ripping off his old blog posts for this it's you.
