Go to island.
There is no time for that.
Please tell me what I can and cannot do.
In other words, can someone please, please do a LOST interactive fiction game?

You have completed 2.5 seasons of this adventure. 
Prepare to do lots of ignoring people and eye-rolling when they keep going on about it in three years time.

I would love to find someone to playtest my entry; haven't had any takers yet. Apparently there aren't enough IF players amongst my circle of friends. But if you could help playtest, drop me an mefimail!

What would you like to see in such a game?

Arr, I ran out of time on this. Starting something last weekend, but I didn't quite have the discipline to constrain it to a doable size.

Really looking forward to seeing the entries though, they were all awesome last year.

Oh my goodness peoples! Please put your stories up NOW.

Am I going to have to make an extension or something?

Just waiting for the last possible minute, in case an extra description of some minor detail comes to mind at the last moment...

Oops! I thought the deadline was midnight tonight, not midnight last night...

Sorry the deadline was tonight but I goofed on the code for the deadline. As soon as I get it fixed I'll. Extend the deadline through Tuesday morning.

Alright, I'm glad I remembered to look at this thread. I thought I had messed up the deadline and I was being all morose.

Well, maybe "morose" is too strong. "Confused" and "eating pierogies" better captures my emotional state. At all times.

Okay everybody, the submission form is up again.

You have until June 2nd to get your submissions up.

Pray I do not etc., etc.

Thanks, cap'n! Mine is up and running!

Hey everybody,

for the sake of those who have something but didn't get it up just on time, I've permanently opened the submission form. Go ahead, put something up, even if it's not totally finished, just so long as it compiles!
