Tent Annual New Year's Minicomp


(sorry for crossposting this late, I’m a doofus and forgot).

Holy Moses, it has been 10 years.

And once again it’s my great pleasure to announce the New Year’s Minicomp.

What, you haven’t heard of it ? Were you born in a tent?

The Tent annual New Year’s Minicomp

For those unfamiliar with this, a short explanation as to the motivation behind it.
It’s meant to offer people a chance at writing a small work of IF at the end of the year. This year, we follow our tradition of having next to no rules:

  1. Write whatever game you like, in any system you like. (Take note of the CF announcement below).

  2. Finish any project you have been working on.

Any approach that lies between the two is also okay.

If you’re thinking “So am I allowed to…” the answer is „yes, absolutely, please do“. To make it clear: You have to work very hard to come up with something I won’t allow as an entry. ( [Anything illegal or in bad faith will be disqualified. No refunds.]

If you’re in need of some inspiration the IF Name Generator which can be found here :

Games should be submitted to marius.ts.muellerSPAM@gmail.com by 23:59 GMT+1, Jan 2rd 2017.

The games will be played on Clubfloyd on January 7th (Thanks, Jacq!) So, if you want your game to be CF compatible, choose your format accordingly. According to ifwiki:

ClubFloyd games absolutely must be programmed in ADRIFT, AGT, Choice Script, Glulx, Hugo, Inform, or TADS (2 or 3) because those are the only games that run on our bot, Floyd.

Thank you and , most importantly, have fun!


Wow. An extra day after new year’s. I might give it a try. I’ve had a game I wanted to do for several years.


Aw yeah! Looking forward to it!



Games will be played Sunday 8th, of course.

The 7th is a Saturday.

My apologies.


3 entries so far!

Okay, I’m going to bed now. 3 hours to go and I will NOT, repeat NOT, accept any late entries until noon tomorrow.


The results are in! We have 4 games, yay! If you feel your game should be on this list but isn’t, drop my an email (remove the SPAM, please, that threw a surprising number of people of… )

The games are:
A N A T I D A E P H O B I A by Peregrine Wade
The Horste by Roger Carbol
Yami-Nabe!! by Brian Kwak

See you all on Sunday (the games will be uploaded to IFDB sometime after that).
