At the 2010 Digital Humanities Developers Challenge, this project was selected as the best of show.

The project itself was summarized by the judges as : 'Once upon a Time / Monkeying around tool was an original serious game that asks the user to write a story using the vocabulary of another author. The game provides a list of words the player must try to use in the story and then restricts the player to the vocabulary -- and the word combinations (bigrams) used by a particular author or corpus, such as Conan Doyle or Jonathan Swift.'

I'm not sure where to take it next, but I'd love to hear ideas; feel free to contact me via email or phone 412 396-5685
