The full results of the 2023 edition of the IFComp are now online!
Hurray, thanks to the organisers!
Something seems wonky with the covers on that page, though? All the
<img> links are like
<img src="/static/images/covers/"> (linking to a directory, not a file), giving a ‘not found’ result, so none of the covers are displayed.
This has just been reported to the right person
Thanks for the head’s up!
More seriously, all the IFDB links are broken too (missing a
tuid), so none of the works can be played from this page. (I suspect the root cause is the same.)
Oh that is bad indeed. Reported again.
Congratulations to all entrants! This was a particularly good-quality competition. I think it is striking that there were 58 games that averaged reviews at or above 5 (and 5 is already a respectable score in this competition, over and above the achievement of releasing a game to the competition in the first place).
(Results page looks all fixed now. Thanks again to organisers.)
It should now all be fixed! Please let us know if you find some issue!
Also, don’t forget to fill in the google form!
I noticed that too! So many high average this year!
We had a really great harvest of games
I’m curious, is the overall distribution of game averages recorded somewhere from year to year? (If not I can scrape the numbers from the page, but this seems like something a spreadsheet-minded person in years past might have already done.)
I have data since 2018 in my spreadsheet
Yay, thanks to all organizers (from tech to administration to moderator etc.!) and all involved (authors, reviewers, betatesters etc.)
Who won the Golden Banana of Discord and Miss Congeniality?
Dr Ludwig the winnneeeeer of everything
Tied for second place: How Prince Quisborne the Feckless Shook His Title, and Put Your Hand Inside The Puppet Head.
What a nice surprise to get 10 dollar prize money… That made my day I remember somewhere reading, that one needs to do certain measures, for the game to appear in the archive.
Unfortunately I dont remember anymore where.
Can some enlighten me?
That would be great.
And again thanks to the organizers.
If you had updated your work during the competition, or you wanted a post-competition release on the IF Archive, you would indeed have to upload it there yourself. This thread might be of some help with the details.
However, the state of all works as they were at the start of the competition was uploaded to the archive by the organisers, here. (Two copies: one inside the giant
IFComp2023.zip, which never changes, and one under the
Games folder, which you can ask to have replaced with a mid-competition version.)
In your case (Escape your psychosis, right?), I think you didn’t do any mid-competition updates (judging by the competition changelog page)? In which case, you’re already good, unless you want to do a post-competition update – your work is already at the IF Archive, and linked to from IFDB.
Hey, congratulations on the $10! Escape Your Psychosis was one of this year’s games that I enjoyed. It was neat to see a gamebook-style entry with such care over the presentation: I’m glad you made it into the prize zone.
