IF, or Interactive Fiction(no, not the podcast.)is another word for text adventure. Most people think that IF died out around the time graphics was invented. But they are still alive and kicking, as evidented by www.ifwiki.org

That was just a small description of what the subject I am going to be talking about. Now is the real juicy bit

It is possible to work together on one single IF as a community. I mean, probably over five would be very hard to organize, but I digress. I am going to organize a small semi-community made IF, involving 5 rooms(One, the main hub, all the others linked to but seperate puzzles.(AKA, the ones the community works on)

Let me just start it again

The synopsis of the IF is you are a nameless person trapped inside this house with five rooms, one which has a door out. And..a giant bomb.

>_> <_<

What you have to do is either defuse the bomb(the hardest puzzle) or get parts of a key from the other four rooms to unlock the front door.

Here is where the community comes in, I will make the main framework, aka the key parts and the bomb, but the community will do the other things.

Say one person per room, aka four other people can work on this. All they have to do is make a puzzle that ends up giving the player a part of a key.

Sounds simple, aye? And the system we'd be using is simple too!

Inform 7

Easy to learn, easy to do, ad of couse I'll help.

There are a few more details, but I want to see interest before I get started.

At least 4 other people. >_>

So. Good idea?




TL;DR: We make a text adventure as a community.

I think you can only find something like this entertaining if you have never played Half Life or Oblivion.
