EDIT: So sorry - I caught the end of her stream and I misunderstood which games she played - she played the three others offline.

JenWithGlasses played I Should Have Been That I Am and Pegasus on Twitch, the video should be archived!

violation of code of conduct about inclusive definition of Interactive Fiction : show
I wanted to start a thread, but fill free to delete my post here if it's off topic.

So, any discussion anywhere in this place about WHY THE FUCK do we still have the chose your own adventures of twine mess in an ORIGINALLY Text-Adventure competition ?? Any real reason I mean ??

Thanx for the reply and please point me to when the "community" decided that Twine should get promoted via a traditional Text Adventure contest...

Ifcomp is for any interactive fiction games, not just parser fiction. You can go to the official website to learn more about it.
