Killa_Robot, The Novelist
Where the hell is my toaster....
Welcome to Inepta Academy!
You play as Elizabeth, an intelligent nine year old girl who earned a scholarship to the school. Unfortunately, you've only been there for a month and don't have any friends. To make matters worse, Randolf, the most popular boy in the school (to the boys) has been annoying you lately.
Now he's stolen your bag and hid it in the boarded off area. It's up to you to retrieve your bag from the area after school is done, so that you can study and pass the big test tomorrow. Maybe you can even find a way to get revenge on Randolf somehow while you're there.
Was made as an entry for the School Based Contest 2016.
--Version 2.0 Update [11/23/2016]--+ Fixed an issue where players found the password too hard + Fixed an issue where end game formatting would burn the player's eyes + Fixed scripting issues + Now tracking your destruction + You can also break more stuff now + Added more paths and options + Added a way to not be punished + Added a more satisfying conclusion + Added different possible endings + Added a page which tells you everything that you did in case you forgot while playing Special thanks to TheNewIAP for helping with edits.
Yep, another zombie game.
No worries though, this one is different, it has phases.
Also random deaths are rare (but still exist), use your head and you should be fine.
Endings are (In order of how good they are)
Best: 9001 points
Secret: 8000 points
Excellent: 4000 points
Good: 300 points
Decent: 200 points
Mediocre: 100 points
Bad: 50 points
Death: -666 points
- Fixed grammar & spelling errors (more than I would care to admit)
- Added scores for endings
- Fixed some routes
- Made ending phase harder like it was supposed to be
Stats: [197 Pages, 297 Links, 9 Epilogues, 10 end-game achievements, and many different ways to die!]
Hope you enjoy it!
You play as Jacob, a 28 year old man who has gone nowhere in life. Suddenly, you wake up to find yourself 10 years in the past. Once there, you meet several people who seem to recognize you, but you can't seem to remember them at all. Is your life the only one that went wrong? What really happened in your past?
This storygame plays out like a visual novel, with a unique route for each main character, and a true route. Replaying it more than once is highly recommended to get the full experience.
I also recommend you complete all the good routes before going for the true end, as it ties everything else together.

And the results are in!
Winner: Mizal with "Ancient Heart" Second: Leora with "I Can Hear You" Third: ericyopy with "Vindicta" Also Third: Orange with "The Cliff"
Votes were kind of split for third place, so they both ended up getting it. Ultimately it seems this contest failed, as none of the entries were particularly strong. For whatever reason, most entries went with the idea of following a person over their life, with their death being the sad part. That could of worked, but none of them really tied in any sort of reason for the death to be sad, like them dying before they were able to fulfill their dream or something. Them dying was just the natural end to that kind of story, so there wasn't a reason to feel bad in most cases.
- Berka and I had the exact same top three entries
- Mizal was the only contestant all four judges gave a place to (and it was always at least second)
- No one got sad, or shed any tears, but everyone was left disappointed
There's not a whole lot I can say in terms of feedback. Lack of effort was more or less the cause of this not going so well. Perhaps the theme was just too tough, or maybe giving more time just backfired tremendously. WouldntItBeNice actually put in a good deal of effort, but they also had awkward prose and spent way too much time telling us what characters were like rather than showing us, resulting in a story that wasn't all that engaging.
Anyway, points will be distributed shortly. Everyone that submitted something will get their points back (even Cricket). Mizal will get the mandatory commendation, but I don't think we can justify giving more out givin the stories only earned around a five.
Hopefully the next contest can build on the failures of this one.
