- So, I was going to post about the winners of the 2006 IF Comp for text adventures, and then Grand Text Auto did a nice brief summary post, so I'm going to excerpt that instead - thanks, guys.

They explain: "The results are in, and Emily Short’s Floatpoint takes top honors at the 2006 Interactive Fiction Competition. The Primrose Path by Nolan Bonvouloir and The Elysium Enigma by Eric Eve placed second and third. Congratulations to these authors and to the others who finished games, entered them, and placed in the Comp. Another person who deserves thanks and congratulations is Stephen Granade, who has been running the Comp since 1999. All the games are still available for download, of course."

There are also heaps of reviews of the interactive fiction titles linked from the GTA post. The entries this year notably included Jason 'Loonyboi' Bergman's 'Game Producer', in which "...you're a game producer (surprisingly enough) and you've got N hours to whip the other people at your company into shape to get the game to go gold" - which is what Jason does in real life! Tres droll.
