I’m going to try and make a game in two weeks. Not only that, I’m going to make it in a programming language I’ve never used before. The reason for that is a challenge by Jacqueline A. Lott (a name you may recognise from the list of beta testers in Frasse): Indigo New Language Speed IF. The rules require, among other things, that the game is made in a language new to the author, and I’m going with Inform 7.
Games are to be finished by the end of the month, and will be played through at Club Floyd. (I can recommend a visit to Club Floyd in general if you like playing Interactive Fiction. It’s fun.)
