Beginner’s Game Competition.

From time to time the question is asked in the forum where to find IF games suited for beginners.
So why not make a competition where the goal is to create such an IF game?
Well here it is! :D

I’ve been thinking about rules for this competition but really can’t come up with any except the usual:

Game has to be made using Adrift V.5
Genre: Your own choice (not adult theme, though)


Then:

Minimum 4 rooms.
Must have dynamic objects.
Must have puzzles (don’t make them too hard. The idea is to give the player a good experience.)


Goal:
To create a beginner’s game that will be suitable for IF newcomers and (hopefully) wet their appetite for playing other games, or maybe even create their own.

Suggestion:
Put yourself in the player’s shoes. This is your first ever IF. How would you like your experience to be and what would you expect out of the game.

Judging:
The games will be judged by their playability, simplicity, entertainment value. In short which game will most likely spark the player’s interest in continuing playing IF.

Entering deadline: June 30th
Voting deadline: July 31st
Competition results: Shortly after.


Prize: 10 $ paid either by PayPal or Amazon voucher whichever is preferred.

The Beginner’s Game Competition is hereby declared open! :D

I think i will come up with something too. Count me in.

You said 'puzzles' so there has to be more than one puzzle?

I've got loads of ideas but doubt I will have enough time.

It doesn't have to be anything major. Keep in mind that the game should be for a beginner...

Not necessarily. But keep in mind that the purpose of this competition is to create games that will give new comers a positive experience of the IF world.
