Alright, nevermind below, this is now a Doug Orleans appreciation thread! Authors especially though can still double-check their own entry pages, and if they have updated entries/additional files they want to add, they can do so! Also, add tags/reviews if you wish!
Just noticed, it seems like a bunch of the IFDB pages for this year’s entries don’t have download/play links in them: https://ifdb.tads.org/viewcomp?id=qwgk1gfg6s3pky3
Does anyone want to help make sure everything’s playable? Doug Orleans did most of them already, so thanks for his hard work!
I’ve split the list into groups, so anyone can pick a group from below and add links to any entries that don’t have them. Here’s a completed twine example, Animalia: https://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=vp5xvfqvycyz2q3r and here’s a parser one, Alias the Magpie: https://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=yspn49v69hzc8rtb
You should be able to link to the files for each game in the IFArchive: http://ifarchive.org/indexes/if-archiveXgamesXcompetition2018.html.
Authors can also double-check their own games if they want.
