!!Purpose

This assignment focuses on:

* developing an interactive fiction game,
* gaining experience with a new game genre (and game engine),
* paper prototyping and user interface design, and
* iterative game refinement.

This is a group assignment (but you may choose to work solo). You may discuss the assignment only with your group or the instructor.

!!Assignment

Usising your design document (see previous assignment) implement a new (interactive fiction) Adventure game.

!!Details

In the spirit of the original [[http://www.ifiction.org/games/play.phpz?cat=&game=1&mode=html | Adventure]] game, '''develop your own interactive fiction (IF) game'''.

To do so, [[http://inform7.com/download/ | download the Inform7]] IF game engine. [-(Inform is a design system for interactive fiction based on natural language. It is a radical reinvention of the way interactive fiction is designed, guided by contemporary work in semantics and by the practical experience of some of the world's best-known writers of IF.)-]

!!Submission

Submit the following via [[https://webct.cofc.edu | WebCT]]:

# Your ''gameName.inform'' source file.

# A PDF document containing:
** Your name, date, class, and a short description at the top of the page.
** A short, yet complete description of your game (see Inform website for examples)
** The map of your game (generated from Inform)
** The winning path (generated from Inform)
** Any remaining issues (e.g., what doesn't work yet, plans for expansion, etc.)

Be prepared to talk about the game (and demo it) to the rest of the class.
