JUDGING "The Magician's Niece" by Hensman Int'l

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 was kind of sad I couldn't really try out the magic system... But I guess that's why this is just an intro and I'll have to wait for the full game to try it out, huh.

The Magicians Niece
Didn't know what to do after collecting stuff. Couldn't make the PDA work.
Couldn't leave the house.
Gave up. LOL! (easily distracted)
