 Short Story Game Competition I
Short Story Game Competition I
  • This competition is a game making competition focused on story telling. The rules are simple, create a 5 - 20 minute game that tells a short story. This time limit in only a suggestion, though over 30 minutes would be absurd.

    Scores can be affected by (but are not determined based on) the following:
    • Mood, Atmosphere you set.
    • Spelling
    • Story
    • Originality and creativity
    • How well you meet the guidelines
    • Special Effects

    Sounds Simple Enough?

    • Any Game Maker is Allowed

    • Timeline
      You will have a month from when the competition begins. After that month, I will post your games on this thread for people to play. There will be a week of judging. After that week, the results will be posted.

    • Results
      After a round is over, I will post the results on who got 1st, 2nd, 3rd, et al. Results will be one a scale from 1 to 100, with 100 being the best and 1 being the absolute worst.
      -You cannot use anything from a released project.


      Other Information
      • Thank you Zeriab, you're my inspiration for this competition too!
      • I will clarify any questions or concerns anyone has!
      • You may use custom graphics and scripts as long as credit is given!
Thanks given by:

Create a short story that expresses or involves death in any way shape or form. The story has to be focused on death. Remember that you are trying to tell a story here, so no enemy encounters. On screen puzzles are acceptable, but remember the game is story based.

Any game is allowed as long as the story revolves around death. Death cannot be a side note here, it needs to be part of the story overall. Also, this does not include the main character dying in a sense of a game over.

Well... this certainly caught my attention. I'll see if I can come up with something, although I've learned I shouldn't promise I'll do it because I almost always seem to get distracted. :P
Thanks given by:
This certainly sounds interesting.
I'd love to join but I don't know if I'll be able to since the next weeks are going to be verry busy... I'll try though.

Hehe thanks, Valdred. :3
Thanks given by:
Oooooo.....maybe I'll try this too. I have a question though (and it is stupid, I know) does one actually um....make a story-based game? I mean, obviously there are characters and maps and storyline it all just dialogue/cut scenes? Or does the player have a part??
