I expect to be a little less active here for the next month or so. I’m participating in ShuffleComp (or, according to my fiancée, SnuffleChomp) and I’m going to be working on my entry in the time that I normally allocate to this blog. I apologize for the lower signal level, but it should pay off in the end.
The XYZZY finalists were announced this past weekend! I haven’t played all the finalists yet, but those I’ve played are amazing. 2014 was a banner year for interactive fiction.
Since you’re not reading a long blog entry from me, why not try some games?
Considering all the truly spectacular games listed, I’m honored to see my Shufflecomp game “Monkey and Bear” listed as a finalist for Best NPC. I didn’t realize it had struck such a chord with people. Thank you for the nomination!
