The 19th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition is going on right the heck now. Go look at it. I’ve entered two games:
Captain Verdeterre’s Plunder is about pirates. The cover art above was created by Caitlyn Harris.
Robin & Orchid is about high school newspaper students who are looking for a ghost. I wrote it with Emily Boegheim.
There are a ton of other games as well. You should play as many as you want, and then you should vote in the competition before the voting period ends on November 15.
