Hours of Inform

The fourth 24 Hours of Inform contest ran from the 9th to the 30th of September 2009.

The required constraints for the entries, provided by James Wallis, were that:-

  • The game must begin in a setting (world, society, organisation, etc.) which has completely ceased to exist by the end.
  • Your descriptive text may not use any numbers other than zero and one. For any quantity higher than one, you can only describe it as 'some'. Creative get-arounds (e.g. "The fridge is full of kidneys") are okay.
  • You must include a bit with a dog.

Two entries were submitted:-
