Interactive Fiction Competition

The Interactive Fiction Competition is an annual competition for works of interactive fiction that has been held since 1995. It is intended for fairly short games, as judges are only allowed to spend two hours playing a game before deciding how many points to award it.

The first competition had separate sections for Inform and TADS games. Subsequent competitions have not been divided into sections and are open to games produced by any method.

Entries are required to be released as freeware or public domain, reflecting the general non-profit ethos of the IF community.

The following is a list of winners to date:

1995 (Inform): A Change in the Weather by Andrew Plotkin
1995 (TADS): Uncle Zebulon's Will by Magnus Olsson

1996: The Meteor, The Stone, And A Long Glass Of Sherbet by Graham Nelson

1997: The Edifice by Lucian P. Smith

1998: Photopia by Adam Cadre

1999: Winter Wonderland by Laura A. Knauth

2000: Kaged by Ian Finley
