Mentioned on my blog, but other people here may also be interested:

Archive of Our Own runs a Yuletide project in which participants write each other stories in different fandoms, as a holiday gift. This year's Yuletide haul includes several IF pieces:

Bigger Than You Think, an astonishing xkcd/Italo Calvino fandom crossover about exploring untold caves. Glulx, but it plays with a hyperlinked keyword interface for greater friendliness.

And a Hippo New Year, a parser-based I7 game hosted on Playfic, in which you play a mouse-sized hippo.

Out of the Night, which deals with the experiences of Dale Cooper after the end of Twin Peaks. Ren'Py, with extensive imagery.

The names of the authors are concealed until Jan 1, but there's some sweet stuff here. Check it out.

The author reveals are now up, so I can lay claim to _Bigger Than You Think_. The post-yuletide release is now up at http://eblong.com/zarf/zweb/btyt/

"And a Hippo New Year" is mine. I hope to have a second release out soon (including a hint system), but in the meantime, it can now be found at http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=ftm9a97w0xt2bzyl.

Nice game (And a Hippo New Year), but I think the goals of the game could be more clear. For instance, I threw the mitten out of the nest and put the piece of garland instead. I think it's enough for my nest. But the game still says: 'you haven't finished making your nest'. And I'm stuck because I don't know what else the game wants from me.
