Well, that’s that for the Main Festival of the IF Spring Thing. It occurs to me that I really should have tried live-tweeting as I played … maybe I’ll do that for the IFcomp. Good idea? Bad idea? Tell me what you think.
I’m going to be shameless for a moment here and say: if you enjoyed those reviews, please consider backing the book I’m publishing on Inkshares. $5* can make all the difference.
(I hate selling myself….)
Anyway! Next up on the IF scene are the Xyzzys. I confess that I do not think I’ve voted on these before, on account of having been busy with work and other Life activities in the past. Looking at the list of finalists … hmmm, what haven’t I played and eaten? I mean, reviewed?
I’ve played “Hollywood Visionary”, but not reviewed it. I should do that. On the unplayed list, I have:
- Beautiful Dreamer
- Neon Haze
- Sunless Sea
- Oppositely Opal
- Scroll Thief
- Hana Feels
- Winter Storm Draco
- Secret Agent Cinder
- Sorcery! 3 (what, really?)
- We Know the Devil
Will I be able play and review all of these before the Xyzzys? Probably not. And I still want to talk about my journey with Inkshares, too … I mean, that’s the reason I started the blog in the first place, after all. But there are a couple of titles up there that look particularly tasty, so I think I’m going to go ahead and play/review what I can.
*- The minimum backing amount is $10, which gets you an e-book once publication happens; but Inkshares also gives each new member (you’ll have to sign up to back anything anyway, no two ways about it) $5 in credits just for signing up. Just remember to claim the credits from the “You’ve got credits!” email first: click the “claim” button.
