Hi, I’m not a big player of interactive fiction, having played a little on and off over several years. I’m excited to have stumbled back into the genre just at the beginning of the competition!
As I see others do, I will post my impressions about the games I’ve played here. I was wondering if there was any interest in having a way to categorise posts according to the games they talk about rather than by author? Either having specific threads for each game, or creating tags for each game?
I also would appreciate some clarification on what is considered a fair attempt at playing a game before submitting a rating. In particular, in a game with several endings, should I try to reach several endings or is reaching one (if I don’t feel moved to try and find the others) enough? In a game that’s supposed to last two hours, if I fail after one hour and 15 minutes, is it OK to stop playing and submit my rating?
