Help test our new game, INCIT!
Tonight the big news is we’ve launched a test version of our new mini-game called INCIT.
The idea behind the game is pretty simple: you compete with others to create motivational posters in a given theme. Rounds currently last 10 minutes, broken up into Submitting, Voting and Results.
In the submitting stage you are given a theme, for example “as an Emo Kid” and a photograph that our mods and admins have painstakingly imported from Flickr. It is then up to you to come up with a creative title and sub-title for the image.
During the voting stage the other players vote on all the submissions.
Finally, the winner is the poster with the most votes.
Limitations of this test version
It is quite likely that aspects of it will be broken, especially during the first few days, while we figure out how it responds to the load of the web site and the volume of users who are playing at any given time.
There is no official tie in to the storyline (yet.) We’ve worked out a small backstory for the game and it will go live when we remove “test” from the title.
There is no reward beyond winning the round beyond seeing your name in huge text. Once INCIT is stable, it will be a source of the much-coveted chocolate scoops for Forumwarz domination.
All winning posters are archived, but there is no way to see previous winners. We will have a gallery for this fairly soon (within a few days, I’d bet.)
Having said that, please please please give feedback! We always make our tools and game much better once we hear what you guys have to say.
