Help test our new game, INCIT!

Introducing 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.

Play INCIT right now!

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.

  1. I’ve played a couple of rounds and I’ve found it incredibly fun. A few suggestions from comments I’ve heard though:

    1) The voting and time in between rounds it waaaaaay too long for a quick game like this. It distracted from the game and annoyed some of us that were playing for 10 rounds at a time. Could you please maybe reduce the time on both voting and limbo and let it trigger the results once everyone has voted?

    2) No-one really stuck to the topics. One of my first rounds was a picture of a topless girl from the back and it told me write one like an emo. The only poster that did this got no votes. While the winning one was funny, there is little point to the character suggestions other than to mock.

    3) Lag was horrible. Please fix.
