Re: Will we rule the IFDB?

Lmao, Rovarsson literally spamming the Intfiction board with every review. I can't say I disapprove.

Re: Happy New Year

This is going to be such a great year for writing, reading, and reviewing for me, finally got my living and family situation sorted out to be 3000% less rage and anxiety inducing for one thing. I'm still working way too much but I'm a lot closer to work with less potential distractions now too. Hell...

Re: Count of all ADRIFT games todate

Someone in the Discord was asking what the heck happened in 2013, but I don't remember any specific incident. I assume it was just general burnout and loss of interest because of the reasons Prune gave. But a few issues need to be sorted such stopping ADRIFT being reported as a virus!, a reliable fu...

Re: Count of all ADRIFT games todate

2013-2015 sure were dark times...

We didn't see than many in more recent years either, although the ones that do get completed are getting more substantial and polished.

e: just realized this topic was a month old, whoops.

Re: Merry Christmas, everyone

Merry Christmas to all! Stuffed myself with enchiladas and showered my niece with nerd presents, all in all a pretty nice Christmas. 2020 honestly has not been a bad year for me personally, I got clear of an extremely annoying and manipulative family member and got a new dog instead, plus had a year...

Re: Will we rule the IFDB?

Something I've been meaning to do for a long time is to sort through David's games for the ones that still hold up the best today.

But that's obviously a daunting task in itself with the sheer number of them.

Re: Will we rule the IFDB?

It's that Discourse software. Choice of Games uses it too and it's an awful cluttered mess I cannot fully express my revulsion for in words. With as big a community as they have I never understood why everyone just seemed to lose all interest in discussing IF outside of the contest, but that place t...

Re: Will we rule the IFDB?

I wish I could still access my old account there. I feel like such a noob with a 2018 one, but I don't have access to the email I set the original up with ten years ago.

Re: Annual IF Comp 2020

Now the challenge, for me, is to produce a small game that could completed in an hour or two with commands that these modern erks won't have any trouble with! They obviously don't like having to actually THINK about the solution to a puzzle. IF is just a genre that winnows out the impatient and ina...

Re: Will we rule the IFDB?

Dang, somebody went on a Christmas game uploading spree and ruined it.

Hopefully I spoke too soon. The intfiction forum has suffered its usual death, but maybe there will be some life on the IFDB going into the next year. Usually it seems like when I drop in outside the comp it's just Mathbrush.

Re: Mystery Fun House

Yes. I had kissed the ticket lady but I haven't got to the mermaid yet. That response seems pretty tame by today's standards, but back then it was probably as far as Scott was willing to go. After all, most players were kids. (I was too) so authors needed to be careful what they put in games so tha...

Will we rule the IFDB?

Now that the IFComp has fully fed on the community's life essence and returned to the coffin for another year, I can't help but notice that three quarters of the IFDB activity are being driven by people associated with this forum. Denk and Rovarsson mainly of course, but antscoff has begun to do rev...

Re: Eamon Revived

I stumbled across that Eamon site early this year, it was kind of amazing this huge thing with the size of the community it once had had managed to stay completely off my radar for so long. Can't imagine the work that would go into putting it fully or even partially on Adrift, but good luck, however...
