10th annual Interactive Fiction competition

This weekend the 10th annual Interactive Fiction competition has started (be careful, the site might still be a little wobbly from its slashdotting).

Interactive Fiction is a fancy-schmancy word for ‘text adventures’; those who know me know I have a weak spot for those.

Anyway, some 40 people have written a computer puzzler that is solvable within two hours. If you choose to participate in judging, you must play at least five games, for as long as you want, although after at most two hours of play you are duty-bound to score the game.

As every year, I will be trying to play my minimum of five games. Last year had an unusually good batch of entries, with the winner of that year being one of the best of the genre so far.
