yo-ho!

We are toying with the idea of another site-wide Interactive Fiction adventure for January. If you've seen Gaucho - An Interactive Geek Western, Geist - An Interactive Geek Horror or Requiem - An RPG Geek Adventure Across Space and Time, you know what we're talking about. Serious inquiries only via Geekmail. We're looking for some fresh blood. It's arduous work but rewarding when it launches. Writing is hard. Writing interactive fiction is painful. You have been warned!

Oh, and it's a Pirate theme. And that's cool!

I'm only looking for one or two writers - it is not first come, first served. We will be choosy.

Dave

Some of my favorite beta testers

Remember, we'll need beta help too - the call for that will go out mid December (with a hopeful launch of the game in mid-Jaunary).

Yarrrr! There'd better be some good jokes about all those oscillating movements the ocean makes worked in there.

Good luck, ladies and gentlemen! It's hard but very rewarding when you see all those people enjoying it!

For a small work of IF, the overhead of communication by adding an additional developer isn't always beneficial. But coding is only one aspect of developing - the writers are, in fact, developers as they detail the story, locations and puzzles.

We've gotten a half dozen great applicants - before we respond I'm sending the list of candidates through Jonna and Dean.

Oh that beta sounds like something I'd be interested in.. (I'm good at breaking stuff and taking wrong turns ) And mid-December would be perfect for me..
Why am I saying that here? Just wanted to say: Don't put out that call too early!! (I won't have internet in the beginning of december) *tries to mind control Dave on the release date of the beta-call*

hahaha I bet you're all very interested in my timeschedule/preference... NOT

I'm afraid I'd be no good at writing but am super excited and grateful that you're planning another as I absolutely loved Geist.. And if beta testers are needed I could definitely help out in that aspect ..

It's moving forward, but it won't be launching at the beginning of the year. Stay tuned for more information

Was there a call for beta testers? If you still need people, I would be very happy (ECSTATIC!) to help.
Cheers all!
