Text Adventure Literacy Jam - Create a TEXT ADVENTURE game suitable for children with no prior experience

Something slightly different for today's retro heads up, as we've just been contacted through Twitter, that as from February 25th, there will be the launch of the Text Adventure Literacy Jam; a brand new creation contest to develop an old-school text adventure game that is suitable for Children with no prior experience. A Jam that encourages text adventure authors to write a fun game such that can guide children (age 8+) so they can play unassisted, or that younger children can play with a parent or trusted adult.

Yes indeed if you loved adventure games whereby specific typed commands such as GO NORTH result in the correct or incorrect choice and a further advancement of the story, then look no further than this latest competition. As in this competition I'm sure it will be filled with great games to play from around the world that can be played by both the young and old! Prizes include for best overall scores : Raspberry Pi 400, Raspberry Pi 4 2GB, The Classic Adventurer - Special Edition, Raspberry Pi Pico, and even a Pico 8 License.
