Re: Back Home by Webb & Bowsman

Indeed, thanks for the review.

The negatives, such as pacing and the puzzles, are my responsibility. Duncan brought the extra level of polish and atmosphere to this game.

Re: Short ADRIFT Games Since 2008

Some good games in there. My personal picks are...

A Witch's Tale
Return to Dracula's Castle II
Beanstalk and the Jack
Gorxungula's Curse

I guess I have a taste for the unusual.

No, but I'm thinking about resurrecting something old for Spring Thing.

Because it's not at the standard that I would want one of my IF Comp entries to be at. It's OK, but not good enough.

Re: Back Home

I select my file, click on the magic 'Upload Game' button and then after a few seconds the screen goes blank (I mean the screen where it gives me the information. The ADRIFT banner and navigation buttons etc. are still there).

Re: Back Home

I can't seem to upload the game.

I'm away for two weeks as of tomorrow, so there will probably be a delay uploading the game.

Back Home

Hello all. I've finished 'Back Home' and it's ready for release. I've tried uploading it to the site, but it doesn't seem to be working at the moment. I don't know. I'll keep giving it a go, and when it's there you can download it an have a go - though you should really play the IF comp releases fir...

Re: IFComp 2011

I've had some computer troubles, and I won't be entering the IF Comp this year. When I've managed to debug my effort I'll pop it up on this site and leave it at that.

Re: Beta Testing for a possible IF Comp entry

revgiblet: Try to get some testers from outside the ADRIFT community. People who are very used to ADRIFT tend to filter out ADRIFT-isms. (guess-the-noun in particular) Yes, good advice. It might be time to cash in some of my 'good-will offers' that I got from previous IF Comp entries. The game is r...

Re: Beta Testing for a possible IF Comp entry

I'm just sticking with what I know, and for a possible IF Comp entry I think along the same lines as David.

Beta Testing for a possible IF Comp entry

I reckon I'm about a week away from completing my game - 'Back Home'. It could be ready for the IF Comp, though I'm in two minds whether to enter it or not. Good beta testing could make the difference. It's a one-shot, relatively short adventure. Not many puzzles. It's story-driven (yay!) Any intere...

Re: IFComp 2011

(sigh) I suppose it is possible that I will have an entry for the comp this year.
