Congratulations to Kieran Green for “Among the Seasons,” and Felicity Drake for “The Missing Ring,” each of which have been awarded a Best in Show Blue Ribbon in this year’s Spring Thing (based on audience voting).
Congrats also to all 20 authors for creating an incredible set of interactive fictions. Voters this year could also suggest Audience Award ribbons for games, and in their words, this year’s crop of new interactive fictions were “avant-garde,” “replayable,” “promising,” “retro,” “bizarre,” “surprising,” “original,” and more. (You can check out all the Audience Awards at the festival link below.)
A round of applause, please, for all the authors!
All the games remain available for play on the Spring Thing site. Thanks to all the authors who entered their work, all the prize donors who provided incentive, and all the players and reviewers who enjoyed the festival.
