Who’s ready for some interactive fiction game jamming? Oh, you? Awesome, because the sixth inkJam has begun. Excited? You should be! A whole weekend of interactive storytelling with ink awaits; at least for those interested in creating something. The rest of us will have to wait until the end of inkJam 2023 for our fun, once all the glorious new choice-driven tales have been submitted.
Now, since the jam has already begun (apologies for not covering this sooner), I hope you’ve brushed up on your ink knowledge, and maybe created some samples to get back into the groove if you’re new and/or never dabbled in this particular scripting language.
All set? Excellent. You’re free to use any engine/platform for your creation, by the way – provided ink is part of it. Your submission doesn’t even need to be in English either, and the only big no-nos are “hateful comments, language or visuals”. Wait, almost forgot: do join inkle’s Discord server if you need help, or, you know, simply want to socialize with other ink fans.
