The Odd Competition

From IFWiki

The Odd Competition is a competition for ADRIFT games, organized by Abbi Park a.k.a. "alsnpk".

For this competition, authors need to pair up each one of these numbers: 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11, with one of these: rooms, objects, tasks, events, and characters, and have and use exactly the particular number you chose of each in the game; no more, no less. (For example, a game could have 11 tasks, 9 objects, 7 characters, 5 rooms, and 3 events.)


  • Submission deadline: was September 17, 2008, 11:59 PM (PST); extended to September 23, 2008, 11:59 PM (PST), and extended again afterwards.
  • Voting deadline: October 30, 2008, or once the polls reach eleven votes; whichever comes last.
