Yes, another one!

You can enter as many entries as you wish, and everyone's must be sent to me a driftersmonthly@hotmail.com by 17th October 2003.

The rule is that the game you enter must have been written in an hour, give or take ten minutes - that includes all bug fixes, writing and coding.

Brief planning on paper is allowed - writing it in over an hour then copying it into the Generator is not.

Entries can be made with either v3.90 or v4.

The only prize is glory, admiration, and publicity.

Last time we had three good entries, and I'd really like to beat that record. The first had about eight! Just spend an hour (it doesn't have to be all in one go) to make use of a few ideas, and try and put together a brief, enjoyable game.

The minimum number of entries for it to ahead is two.

Have fun, and remember send your entries to me at driftersmonthly@hotmail.com within one week (by 17th October at the latest)!

The lack of ADRIFT generator prevents me from entering yet another competition. Good luck to you all!

Although I almost ran out of time, and it's only been played through twice, I got the game to be pretty long for one hour.

The Revenge of the Curse of the Ghost of the Evil Chicken of Doom...Returns! is ready to blow you all away.

The Revenge Of Clueless Bob Newbie - undoubtedly the best game in the comp written about someone called Clueless Bob Newbie who is out for revenge.

Isn't it strange how almost all one hour games turn out to be comedy? :)
