Players can now nominate entries in this year’s Spring Thing for ribbons. There are two kinds of ribbons:
- “Best In Show” ribbons, for Main Festival entrants only, will be awarded to the two games with the most nominations overall.
- “Audience Award” ribbons, for any festival games, are suggested by nominators and can be anything they like: “Best Story,” “Best Parser Game,” “Personal Favorite,” “Alumni’s Choice,” “Cutest Vampires”… you get the idea.
Ribbon nominations are open to anyone, although we respectfully request that you:
- Play at least two games before making any nominations
- Only make nominations once per festival year (although it’s easy to update/amend your ballot)
Players may nominate games up until 11:59PM EST on May 13th at the nomination page on the festival site. The festival games are available here.
