Ah, I'm having trouble even getting started with this, unfortunately. I've looked for download of the VICE emulator that you recommend, but I'm struggling to open any file I find. It's a shame because I do want to give every game submitted for the jam a fair shot. Do you have any recommendations on where I should go to get the VICE emulator that I'll need?
VIC Advenger - VIC20
A downloadable game
VIC Advenger was made in one day for a GAME JAM to promote VIC 20 awareness. It is a homage to Adventureland by Scott Adams and Space Invaders by Tomohiro Nishikado. The game should be a very short experience (the ending can be reached in under 5 minutes).
Scott Adam's Adventure games were 16 kilobytes. This experiment attempts to capture a narrative in the natural 3 kilobytes available on a stock computer. Find out more about how to play the original games here.
The game is a KEYBOARD controlled text adventure made entirely in BASIC for the unexpanded VIC 20. I recommend using a real Vic 20 or VICE emulator in NTSC mode (open the prg file in xvic.exe program).

Thank you for asking. There are several emulators; I believe VICE has a website (not sure if I am allowed to link). Find xvice.exe in the VIC 20 folder? Open xvice.exe then drag the prg file into xvice window. Everything should autostart. Please let me know if I can help.
I have added a direct link to a browser-playable version of the game.
