Contest Closed

As of 1/11/11 (Jan 11, 2011), 11pm EST, the contest is closed.

It's the eleventh hour, and unlike in most adventures, that means things have come to an end. We've received about 30 entries for the contest. Just about twice what I'd anticipated, and about the maximum of what we'd like to handle. The games will be posted here and distributed to the judges over the next few days. There is also a forum for discussion of issue relating to solitary role playing games over at the Crosswords forum.

The feedback and awards will be announced and posted here on February 1, 2011.

Congratulations to everyone who worked on a game in this contest! It has been a real treat to see your ideas form on blogs and forums. And it's also been a lovely surprise to see how many people surfaced from all walks with entries.

A special congratulations to everyone who was able to meet the deadline! But the real work here is in creating the game. Finding inspiration, following your ideas, and bringing your work to a state that satisfies you is the most important matter here.

There are many entries that did not fit the criteria, or that may be completed later. And many of the entries may continue in development beyond this contest. We will continue to update this site and post links to all these games, after the game contest is completed in full.

Thank you so much, to everyone who have participated. I salute your efforts and creativity. Thank you for making this a very fruitful enterprise indeed!
