BIGJam 2011: Free Cat Text Fun-adventure and Nikki Physics Mod
Two of us were at BIGJam this weekend. It was fun! We produced a Haskell- and an Inform-based game prototype. Both are silly.

For "Acrobots" we modified our open source Nikki and the Robots Freeplay version to have no gravity and added a new floating robot. The robot is supposed to collect engines and trash that floats around the level which would add thrust and mass respectively.
The Inform-based text adventure can be played here online. It begins with:
You are in a room that looks fancy-dancy. You can see backyard door, a glass box (closed) (in which is a cat) and a unicorn here.
The Inform text adventure language is very natural-language-like and is a good learning tool for some beginner programmers.
We're looking forward to more Game Jams and the BIGJam 2012!
