That's awesome, congrats! Hadn't even heard of this contest.

City of Secrets used to be one of my favorite games though, and still one I recommend to complete IF noobs. I'll have to check this one out.

It is really good to see an ADRIFT game come first in an external comp.

It is pretty cool really. I think this is the first time an ADRIFT game has actually won a non-ADRIFT comp.

Thanks, everyone :)
Well, part of the story is that there were only two entrants, but I guess that isn't my fault ;)
Hopefully, the win will make a few non-drifters curious and download the ADRIFT-runner and try a few ADRIFT games.

There wasn't time for beta-testing so I am planning a post-comp release. So if any of you try the game and experience some bugs, typos etc. I would be grateful to know.
