11th IF Comp Results Are In

by Nick Montfort · , 1:56 am

Vespers by Jason Devlin is the winner of this year’s IF Comp – the Wall Street Journal called it. There is a tie for second place: Beyond, a game by Italian authors Roberto Grassi, Paolo Lucchesi and Alessandro Peretti, and A New Life by Alexandre Owen Muñiz, which was also mentioned in the Journal article. Here are the full results. Congratulations to Jason, Roberto, Paolo, Alessandro, Alexandre, and all the other winners!

Dan Shiovitz has already posted an essay with some general observations about this year’s comp, and the usual deluge of reviews on rec.games.int-fiction seems to be beginning, too. Check ’em out – and, of course, check out the games.
