The Spring Thing 2012 site is up and running:

The competition last spring was a definite success, and I'm definitely running it again next spring. Sorry I'm a little later than usual in making the announcement this year.

I have some good news to announce: there is already up to $900[*] for the prize pool this year!

The donors are:
$200-$700[*], donated by Kate McKee
$100, donated by Wayne Miller
$100, donated by Greg Boettcher

[*] Kate McKee's donation is "$100.00 US, plus an additional $100 per entrant, up to a maximum of $700." She is willing to donate a very generous amount, but only if it helps encourage a good number of high-quality games. Let's hope her donation, as well as Wayne's and my donation, encourage people to enter the competition.

In case you hadn't heard, the Spring Thing is the *other* annual competition for interactive fiction games. It happens every spring. To find more about it, go to the following link. If you're interested in entering the competition, click on "Rules."

Thanks again to last year's donors, judges, entrants, and others who participated last year to make last year's event a success. We had 6 entrants and over $1000 in prizes.
