I just finally played mine through to the end and got a score of "6 out of a possible 2"...looks like I still have a bit of work to do! :blush:

i'm only halfway completing my entry. I have a day off tomorrow so i will try and get it finished. But it might be rough around the edges.

A bit of a newbie question.
Is it considered a must for most IF games to have a score at the end of the game? Is its purpose to show player they have missed some things when they finish?

It's definitely not a must.

I don't need an excuse!

I actually like what I've done, so I want to expand it and work the newbie kinks out so it's more enjoyable to play.

I'm going to do something a bit more simple for the contest, but it will have graphics. I have tomorrow off work and the wife's visiting family! :D

I really can't believe:

1. I'm starting a new game today.
2. I'm drawing cheezy graphics for the game.
3. I've already had a half bottle of wine and pinch of snuff before noon.
4. I'm making an IF game instead of looking for a new job

huzzah!
:D

Well, it's 1:33 a.m. California time and I'm finishing up. I started my game this morning. Plan on getting it in by midnight tomorrow!
Of course since some of you are in Europe, is tomorrow night too late??
