This will break a lot of links on ifwiki to old ifcomp reviews, but I may be the only one that looks at those. I also enjoy reading older reviews for games and it was fascinating to see how you incorporated them into your historical analysis of previous comps. It would be unfortunate if that resour...

The slots mechanic is a great idea and I believe that most people will share in HanonO's evaluation of it.

That looks like an interesting game, a few things come to mind regarding the slots mechanic: 1. My biggest concern: Do you have the option, or would it be easy for you to implement as an option, instant results for the player? It may not seem like much since it's happening so quickly, but compoundin...

I wouldn't use the words "random", "boring", or "garbage". You write some of the most well thought out, informative, and interesting things on the topic of IF. Also, I would add: IFTF http://iftechfoundation.org and Play Testing to that list of ways you can contribute.

Anyone who wants to migrate their reviews from the forum would help the database grow. OK, I'll consider doing that over the next couple of weeks if it will help the IFDB. I eagerly await retrospectives and padding alike! Then here's one that falls into the retrospective category: I feel in hindsig...

huge list! Yeah, sorry, I had a difficult time coming up with a "huge" list of retrospectives. Including the several I had already posted, I think I may have been able to get to 11 or so if you're willing to accept that at least 4 of them were pure padding. I think I'm going to release th...

I'll freely admit that creative writing is my weak point, I think you're grossly underestimating your talent here. which is why my introcomp game is an adaptation of a Sherlock Holmes story with all text by Arthur Conan Doyle. Thank you for entering! I can't say anything else regarding this until a...

I look forward to your huge list! It was really only 7 or 8 points...maybe? But ok, there seems to be a lot of enthusiasm brewing up around here regarding my retrospectives, so yes, I will produce one huge list of them much later on today. In the meantime, here is another retrospective of mine from...

Is Bill Mays reviewing Introcomp 2017? You better believe it! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D Also, my list of retrospectives from 2016 was much longer than the single entry I had just posted, but deleted them out of concern that they would garner little interest. I'm going to interpret your simple question h...
