This particular competition is starting early as so many creative writers are damnably slow writers. It will only happen this first time, future competitions will start on the end day/first day of a month (Game writing is done to timelines set by others - get used to it!).
Your protagonist is at the bottom of an extensive cave system. His/her goal is to escape this cave.
You are to write an origination story of how your protagonist found themselves at that location, as well providing the elements of why he/she must escape that situation.
30th April 2013 -------------- NOTE: Judging starts from now -- early work will probably be seen more - so take that into consideration.
The top 3 stories as shown by votes through the upvote/downvote will earn a year's GDNet membership (or if already accessed to this rank or higher - a Steam equivalent prize).
These competitions are going to be a regular thing. You should look upon these as opportunities to showcase your ability as well learning to work within specific deadlines.
Anyone can upvote or downvote posts. If you do have criticisms please make them constructive in your posts (grammar nazi is not constructive). If your posts become conversations please take them over to Private messages.
Also in case anyone does wonder why I don't do this through the lounge rather than in the the specific creative forums (yes there will be also art/music ones in the next 2 months), it is because I am looking for those who show intentions of interest by being respective members of the forum as opposed to drift netting entrants.
