Welcome to the Infocom Tribute Jam!
In April 2019, the world of interactive fiction was turned on its head when the source code to every Infocom text adventure was released to the general public. In honor of the games and the legacy of the Infocom implementors, I decided to host this game jam.
Entrants must be based on an infocom adventure game in some way, be written using ZIL or Inform 6, and the compiled game must be in the Z-Machine format. You do not have to release the source code unless you wish to, but releasing the source code is strongly encouraged.
How long will I have to write my game?
I'm glad you asked! The jam will take place from April 15, 2020 to June 15 2020, and judges will have until August 15 to judge the entrants in 3 categories: writing/grammar, implementation and gameplay.
