The third Hours of Inform have begun, then - good to see some interest. "The adventure must be set in a theatre. It must involve a petticoat, an advertisement, something which is repainted, and a trapdoor."  ]

Levez points out that there hasn't been an Hours of Inform this year, and that maybe it's time for one. Is anyone interested? For the uninformed, Inform is a text-adventure programming language which allows the creation of games in the Infocom style - it automatically includes all the default handling and stock responses, and leaves you to expand and alter things as much as you feel like. The language is fittingly object-oriented (each room and game object being a distinct chunk of code that specifies how it reacts to the player's actions, or interacts with other objects), and anyone with a rough grasp of programming could knock up a simple keys-and-doors-and-give-object-to-antagonist sort of game from scratch, in few hours.

The Hours will run in the same way that the last one did - you're only allowed to use twenty-four of them, but can scatter them non-consecutively within the remainder of 2004. As soon as we've got, eh, three people interested (and someone else to provide the arbitrary theme requirements), I'll declare it open. Leave a comment to this post, wherever you're reading it, or email me.  ]
