Make Yourself Famous! – Win A Supporting Role In An Emily Short Game!

Alright, guys — this is fun:

Emily Short’s running a charitable bid to help someone in her circle pay the doctor.  (This is a very American story — computer games for doctors’ visits.)

That means she’ll write YOU (or anyone you like) into her game.  This is it!  This is your chance!  You can literally put yourself into a text game!

Admittedly, it’s a cameo.  But if you want her to write an entire game about you, she can do that, too — if you win a different bid.

Confession:  I wrote Emily an email and nagged her to come up with some affordable way for people who are working in Cambodia for $6/hr to pitch in.

So, c’mon, guys — this a way you can do a really good deed to help someone take care of themselves, and do something cool and new with IF.

ps – Emily’s also auctioning access to the source code of her old games.  If you’re interested in writing games in Inform 7, what better way than to see how she does it?

  1. One warning before Inform 7 enthusiasts start bidding on all that source code: at least the first three of those five games were written in Inform 6, which is completely different. Floatpoint is sure to be a solid Inform 7 game, though.

  2. I’m enjoying your reviews. But: what are you doing in Cambodia for six dollars an hour?

  3. I’m teaching English.
