IF awards and how we think about them

We just got a new issue of SPAG. (The Society for the Promotion of Adventure Games, a long-historied zine of the IF community. It's old enough that it was originally "Society for the Preservation of Adventure Games" because we thought...

Two weeks left of IFComp judging

The 20th annual Interactive Fiction Competition remains open for public judging through Saturday, November 15. There are 42 games this year, many of which you can play right in your web browser, and all of which are free. This is...

Zarfplan: June is getting there

Happy Canada Day (and pretend I said that in French). 82 out of 90 rooms complete. I'm not really measuring progress in rooms any more. There were only a few days this month that I'd mark as "wrote some rooms"....

Jason McIntosh is the new IFComp organizer!

IFComp is over, and it turns out I entered this year! Cold Iron placed fifteenth of 38 entries. It's a tiny little game -- so if you're hungry for Zarf IF, you can either be disappointed that it's so small...

[IFComp2010] Reviews of <em>R</em> and <em>Leadlight</em>

It&#8217;s time for the annual Interactive Fiction Competition. Since I&#8217;m not participating as an author this year, I&#8217;m going to be participating as a judge. I might not end up reviewing all of the games, but I wanted to start...

IFComp begins

If you know what the IFComp is, then you didn't need to read it here. Nonetheless! I'd feel dumb if I didn't mention it. The 2009 Interactive Fiction Competition has begun. Twenty-four short text adventures. Including one by the Gameshelf's...
