You can see the name of the author on the adventure page, David. I didn't put it on here because I wanted to disclose the author at the end of the competition.
The name Intro_CompVB1 was the name of the taf file I received, and since there was no other name I used that.

The title should be "Head Case" I mentioned that in my email to you Po when I sent it. I didn't think to save the game with the title, I thought you would of listed it with the title I gave. Gmail won't send .exe files so I had to send it as a .taf. Can you change the title to what it should be in the list. Thanks.

I'm sorry Daza, I didn't see that. :blush:
I've tried to change it but it's not possible once the poll is added.

I've played two of 'em thus far =]

Am I right in thinking we can't discuss the games until voting is over?

No, it's ok to discuss the games while the comp is running. Just do it at the Game Discussion thread.

Is there a list somewhere of who wrote which game?
The >ABOUT function doesn't seem to work, but if you click Help, you can select information about the game, which gives the author and title.

My vote's in. Would really have liked to vote for more than one as it was actually a three way tie for the best game, but I guess the other two will just have to go without.

I have some brief reviews written for this comp. Should I wait to post them while people are still playing, or feel free to post my thoughts?

Just out of curiousity:
What made you vote for this particular game? (Whatever game you voted for)

I voted for this game because I got captured by the intro and the atmosphere of the game as I played it.
I didn't look too much on the perfection and the technicality. To me the story was the important issue.

The game that got my vote did so because I liked the story, liked the way it was written and wanted to see the finished version. It was also technically sound, which was nice. It was a pretty close call between this and two other games, with this one just edging ahead because I found the story more interesting. Ideally I'd have liked to vote for all three but I wasn't able to.

Btw, have you made the folks over at Int Fiction aware of this comp? Might be good to get some additional votes (and some anticipation of the games of course!)

In this case should you therefore extend the deadline for voting?
