Text the Halls IF competition   1 comment

TIGSource is running an IF contest called “Text the Halls”. The entries are now gathered together in a voting topic. There are 4 Inform games, 1 TADS game, 2 ALAN games, 1 Windows-only game, and 2 ‘online’ games (basically choose-your-own-adventure style).

Voting will last “a week” (so it closes January 3rd).

Asteka   Leave a comment

There’s a thread on Asian-language IF on rec.arts.int-fiction. I wanted to mention the first (and so far only) original Asian-language IF I’ve ever heard of: Asteka, which is in Japanese.

(The non-original one I’m thinking of is Japanese version of Zork I.)

One game existing does suggest that there were others. I don’t know enough Japanese to do any research.

Progress Bar (aka Guilt-o-Meter)   1 comment

So the people have spoken and I am working on project #2. Just to keep myself from getting too stalled, I will shame myself with my own personal progress bar. Feel free to taunt me if the bar stays stuck at one place for too long.

Progress bar

Alpha version (playable to the end with a walkthrough, my goal by the end of the year) is roughly at 50%.
