TWIFcomp

From IFWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

TWIFcomp is a competition for tweet-sized interactive fiction. Why? Because the world needs more strangely-themed interactive fiction competitions and this one requires little time to write, play, and judge. The basic premise: write a complete game in 140 characters (not including white space). This first (and probably only) TWIFcomp is organized by Jack Welch. Prizes include duct tape, ramen noodles, lucky dice, and pokémon cards.
