You are standing in an open field west of an IF competition. There is a small mailbox here.

Just a friendly reminder that the 13th Annual IF Competition is underway. As a recent convert to IF myself, I gotta say, I’m excited!

Now, if only I had enough time to play through all the games and vote before the November 15th deadline… Oh well — hopefully you loyal readers will pick up my slack!

Download all the games here.
View the complete list of entries (with individual downloads) here.

EDIT: Don’t know where to start?
IF author Emily Short is currently reviewing each entry on her blog. (Thanks Terry!)

IFComp ’06 & More!

Mmm... text.

This just in from our man who likes Japan, Shih Tzu:

The 12th annual Interactive Fiction Competition started October 1st and runs until November 15th. The IFComp is a community-driven competition of homebrew text adventures in the style of the old Infocom games (think Zork).

Everyone is encouraged to download the games and rate as many as possible.

Also! Defcon has been reviewed by The Onion A.V. Club, “proving
once again that they are totally deliciously indie.”

Thanks, Shih Tzu!
