The blog entry text
New speed-IF this weekend! This event was inspired by the beta release of Inform 7, but you may use any programming language you like. Here are the parameters (submitted, Mad Libs-style, by the denizens of ifMUD). Write a game that includes all of the following elements:
- The following new words:
- nockle, noun: The phenominally unsuccessful miniaturized French Horn, now almost forgotten.
- flugulate (floo-gyu-layt), v.i.: To run about wildly in an attempt to catch a piece of paper that has been caught up in a breeze
- zomg, noun: Sharp corners, esp. of household furniture.
- A poem of no more than six lines. The poem must contain each of the following three lines (these lines can appear anywhere in the poem, in any order):
- Only in the spring does love turn to dust.
- One thing remains, that no more monkeys roam
- With thirty waking moments to her name
- Either the Irish setter or the Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen.
Deadline is Monday night, May 15. Try to spend no more than two hours coding. Post a link to your results in a comment to this post or on ifMUD when finished. Go!
