I hope your game does well!

Garry is correct. Each author retains the rights to their work. Submission to other comps would depend upon their rules.

Did you intend to remove this game from ParserComp 2024?

If not please notify me on the comp page and you will be able to add back to the comp.

Thanks, Jeff (fos1)

Fixing typos and clerical errors should not be a problem. It would be best not to make significant changes in the game.

The entry period for ParserComp 2024 is now over.

Please release and publish your games. We need to ensure they are available for judging.

Thank you

I am not sure what you mean by a demo game. Entries should be fully playable. I expect that a demo game would not be rated well during judging.

Updates for typos and bug fixes are OK but not new content. 

It is ok. voting starts in a day. With the games set to public we can sort out any problems before voting starts.

Thank you, Jeff

Thank you for the tip. I will go back and copy that linke.

Hi WauloK,

Yes. That would be the proper thing to do. 

I'm looking forward to your game.

I'll check the Discord server and see if I can figure out what's going on there.

Thanks, Jeff

PS. I changed permissions on the Discord server. Let me know if it is working as it should.

Thank you, Sir.

A very nice game! I'm still testing. A walkthrough would be nice.

Yes. Beta testing is fine. The game cannot be published or available to the general public before the start of judging.

Hi Kanderwund,

The Classic / Freestyle selection problem must be a bug. :( 

I will see about fixing that this morning. 

I believe the bug is now fixed. Please edit your game submission to ensure it is listed in the proper category. You may have to delete and re-submit the game. Please let me know how it goes. (Thank you!)

You are correct the submitted games cannot be viewed until the judging period begins.

Thank you for letting me know about the bug. And thank you for your game submission!


There is no theme. It is based on what the reviewers think is the best game.

Absolutely. Any game that has not yet been published is qualified to enter.

Hi Ragi,

I have fixed the category selection option on the submission form. Please go back and select the proper category.

Thank you for entering!

Resolved. Maintaining status quo. Authors still have the option to opt out of placement in the IF Archive.

ParserComp 2024 community · Created a new topic IF Archive?

If games on ParserComp are required to be the IFTF IF Archive, will that discourage you from entering?

Thanks, fos1

Thanks, fos1

I have purchased the game with a small dollar amount. It is excellent as all of your games are. Very well written and implemented. 

Thank you, Jeff

Thank you very much!

I'll be baaak. ;)

The game looks very nice.  I cannot find a purchase link.

Thank you, Fos1

Thank you for the update info. Very helpful.

Hi smartgenes,

Are you trying to submit a game for ParserComp?

If so, what was the development system?

There is a link to play Sea Coral online if you go to the game page. Thank you.

How should the game be placed into the Jam, as Z-code or something playable via html?

Borogrove seem to be borked for storing games currently.

I started reviewing last night. I have been looking at my old game, the Beginner Guide and the Punyinform 4.1 Manual. I am pretty sure I will be ready when the theme is announced. After writing my Ecto entry in I7 and going back  to TADS for my current game, the code all runs together. 

Thanks, Jeff

I had most of a game written for an earlier Punyjam.

I need to get back up to speed. What is the best sequence to read the documentation to start writing again?

Thanks, fos1

I can see why this game received so many ratings. It is an excellent game. I love the narrative.

This is a brilliant game. It reminds me of the Dr. Seuss books I used to read to my children. 

I took off a point because I couldn't navigate the rhyming moves to navigate without resorting to the walkthrough.

That is a very nice review. Thank you!

A very interesting game. The sound effects are a nice touch. I believe this is the first ChoiceScript game I have played. 

I have uploaded a pre-release to my personal itch account. I expect to finish the game in the next few days. 

Thank you for the link regarding accessibility.


This will be the first time I have entered a game into a competition on

Would it be possible to get a brief outline of the process for EctoComp?

Thank you, Jeff

My favorite season. EctoComp makes it even better!

Maybe a "Guessing Game"?

Hi Kenped,

A very good idea. We have already had some input from others that like We will definitely consider hosting it here again next year.

Thank you, Jeff
