I was cheering for Lost Pig, too.

To celebrate the results of this year's IF Comp, why not check out the entries on the new Interactive Fiction Database?

Previously. Other IF Comps.

I recently went on an IF playing spree. The most interesting one I played was The Baron. It's a DARK game, though...

I love interative fiction.

Might I suggest Baf's Guide to the Interactive Fiction Archive?

That site kept me sane in my high school computer science class.

I played Lost Pig a few weeks ago. A deserved winner.

Here are Dan Shiovitz's and Mike Snyder's.

There were some nice games this year. "Lost Pig" is indeed a new classic, and "The Chinese Room," "An Act of Murder," and the insanely literal "Slap That Fish" were all standouts as well.

Jeremiah: You'll like that Baf entries are almost fully integrated into the IFDB.

For an example: Andrew Plotkin's brilliant Shade on Baf and in the IFDB.
