Introduction

The Summer Minicomp will be run during August 2002. Entries will be due in by 16:00 GMT on Sunday 18 August 2002. There will be a week of judging time where anyone who wanted to can download the entries and have a vote on the result.

I will put in a $20 prize via PayPal (or an Amazon.com gift voucher) for the best entry.

Rules for this competition

All games must be written using Adrift 4.0
There is a limit of 25 rooms (as in rooms in the Adrift generator). It is always possible to make one room seem like many.

All entries must be accompanied by a walkthrough, which can be a simple transcript from the runner.

Overall filesize limit of 200k - reasonable with the other limitations. The original ALR file does not need to be included as it can be exported for examination. This limit applies to the size of the submitted file and it can be in a .ZIP file. When files are posted for downloading they will all be in a zipped form.

Games must not be passworded.

Naturally enough the games should be a completely original work.

No more than two entries will be accepted from one contributor.

Entries should not be discussed until after the closing date for judging. This does not stop you from taking part in collaborations or using betatesters.

Contributors may also be judges, but must not judge their own entries.

Entry and judging

All entries should be sent to me at competition@kfadrift.org.uk by 16:00 GMT on Sunday 18 August 2002. The entries, as well as a text file judging form, will be available as soon as I can get them posted here at www.kfadrift.org.uk/competition.html.

Judging to be complete by 16:00 GMT on Sunday 25 August 2002. Results to be posted as soon as possible after that.

The options are:

1. You can access directly via the web

2. Download an installation package (recommended)

3. Download a zipped package

Judging lasts for one week, judging sheets to reach me at

I will post the results here shortly after the judging ends.

The judging is complete (2 'drifters decided to register their votes)

The winner receiving 48 marks (one more that the other competitor) was "Professor Von Witt's Fabulous Flying Machine" written by Mystery who wins the $20 prize.

Thank you to the competitors and judges for their efforts.
