An international literary parody contest, the competition honors the memory (if not the reputation) of Victorian novelist Edward George Earl Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873). The goal of the contest is childishly simple: entrants are challenged to submit bad opening sentences to imaginary novels.

WINNER:

Theirs was a New York love, a checkered taxi ride burning rubber, and like the city their passion was open 24/7, steam rising from their bodies like slick streets exhaling warm, moist, white breath through manhole covers stamped "Forged by DeLaney Bros., Piscataway, N.J."

WINNER, ADVENTURE:

Leopold looked up at the arrow piercing the skin of the dirigible with a sort of wondrous dismay - the wheezy shriek was just the sort of sound he always imagined a baby moose being beaten with a pair of accordions might make.

Elevator Action meets Metal Gear Solid? Splinter Cell. (I am told it runs well in WINE.)

See also, the "Some Punctuation" review of same.

Post-win critique.Collapse )

Don't get me wrong, it's a fun game. Just needs some tweaks. I think it would make a great XBox Live Arcade game.
