JUDGING "Apokalupsis" by revgiblet

INTROCOMP AIM
The challenge is to come up with a brilliant beginning to an Adrift game that is in a working playable form. This must really make the player want to actually continue with the rest of the game, if it existed. So, it is a competition for games that are just an introduction using no more than 3 locations and is all about good writing rather than loads of actions/puzzles.

JUDGING
Judges should play the games from the zip file located at The Adventure Demos section on the Adrift site and then mark them in the poll for that game. Be careful not to get it wrong as you cannot take a vote back. Entries should be judged on the basis of how much they draw you into wanting to play the full game, but the mark should also reflect how well you believe the game fits in with the spirit and rules of the event.

Judging ends in two weeks at 5PM BST on Sunday 14th June 2009 after which the winner will be acclaimed based on the aggregate of votes cast in the game poll.

I'm not a huge fan of murder mysteries, mainly because I need to use sledge-hammer hints or "cheat" and go to the source. However based on writing style and what I read in the source, I would have to give this game a high rating, and recommend to those who like this genre.

I'm not sure why the main character would be explaining all of this to me... But hopefully that would be explained in the full version.

Excellent writing.
