Another adventure in programming, this time stepping outside the conventions of Inform, TADS, and others because they for some reason aren't good enough. I will give Peter Wendrich the benefit of the doubt and assume that he doesn't think he's better than the programmers of other IF languages, but that he simply wanted to see what new path he might be able to forge on his own. Okay, fine, but StoryFactory needs a great deal more work (the first thing I read in the manual was an apology for the bugs in the parser) and it really isn't comp-ready.

Additionally, before entering a competition, he might have done well to spend as much time writing the game as he did developing StoryFactory to really show off its merits. Unfortunately, the story, the writing, and the grammar all suffer as much as StoryFactory does, and I just haven't the patience for unpolished stuff in a comp, sorry.
