Hi everyone! It is with great excitement that I can jointly with @adamthecowdog announce a new choicescript contest; Create you own Virtual Reality…
The Theme: Virtual Reality. Interpret it however you wish but your task is to come up with story in some way connected with Virtual Reality. Perhaps the game takes place in one? Or is about building one? Or blurred lines between what’s real and what isn’t real? It’s up to you!
The Rules: The contest will run for 2 weeks, from Sunday 11th October, through to Sunday 25th. You can work on ideas, concepts, plans etc before then but please no coding before 00.00 GMT on Sunday. And of course you entry must be submitted before Midnight GMT on the 25th.
The Goal: To write an interesting, engaging and/or fun story/game. There are no requirements for length or content and given that you only have 2 weeks we would recommend you work on a demo, something to show off what your project might become rather than a completed story. But of course short stories are welcome.
Submission: To submit your entry, put it up on dropbox or some other hosting service and send the link of a playable version to me via private message.
Judging and prizes: Given that these stories will (probably) be fairly short, we’re throwing open the judging to you lot, the community! I will compile all the entries into a thread, make them available to be played and you will be able to vote for your favourite. After a week, the poll will be closed and the winner announced. Furthermore, there will be 3 special categories, to be judged by Adam and myself:
-Most difficult Decision
In terms of prizes, all we can offer is the respect of ourselves and the CoG community. This isn’t a competition for money, merely a chance to showcase your work to IF fans and to kickstart a project. And of course it’ll certainly make a great accolade to have won something as your CS career continues.
So whether you’re a published author looking to get your next project off the ground or someone who has never coded before and thinks they might want to give it a go, we encourage as many of you as possible to take part.
If you want to join in, please say so below and we look forward to reading your fantastic entries!
P.S. Adam (@adamthecowdog) has come up with the idea and inspiration for this competition so please direct all your praise and adulation to him
