I see web-based games seem to be gaining popularity with no less than 19 entries (over half the games) this year. I can't say I'm really fond of web-based games because of the usual problems of browser freezing / crashing, can't UNDO or load saved games, etc. I'm assuming most can be downloaded for offline play, but I still find myself strangely reluctant to play them.

I see the usual rule breaking is in effect this year as one previously released game has already been disqualified. You'd think people would have learnt after all these years.

Not me. The updates rule has soured me on the whole IFComp.

I haven't really had time. I still have to find time to get through more of the Ectocomp entries this year! I've played about five or so, so far.
