The results of the 2008 Annual Interactive Fiction Competition has been around for a while. The biggest surprise (NOT!) was that "The Absolute Worst IF Game in History" finished last!

On a more positive note, Anssi Räisänen managed to finish (no pun!) 18th of 35 games. No bad feat for a tricky Anssi-style Alan game, in a strong field full of aspiring Inform litteratureists!

What They Say

"[the game] does not represent the real capabilities of the Alan Language but does demonstrate Alan's amazing ability to allow someone who has never done an iota of computer programming of any kind to produce SOMETHING within a few weeks!"
