Well, suit yourself. Though I fail to see either a shortage of apples, or any need for you to eat any oranges, just because they're allowed to compete with the apples.

30+ parser games in the comp this year... you don't need to go near that icky Twine stuff if you don't want to. :P

Not sure why allowed changes matter, from a judge's perspective... beyond maybe some bug fixes happening, hopefully before you play the game, which seems like a good thing? You're not obligated to replay if it's after, either.

I assume by 'they' you mean I just tried to figure out what went down, buuut it's kinda hard to form an opinion on the mod team's actions when those actions include deleting the posts they found objectionable. :P

I'm not convinced that IF is dying. If anything, I think we're still in the gestational period.

Wellll, I don't remember the exact price, I just remember thinking it was highway robbery. It used to be $2.50-$3.00, but I'm pretty sure it's a fair bit more than that now. *Googles* Yup! Looks like it depends on region, but it really is $5 in some areas.

Huh. I feel like I've tried the Keebler equivalent of samoas, and it wasn't as good... could be psychological, though. Clearly I need to arrange a blind taste test. XD

What kinds have you tried? Most are pretty generic, but I'll actually pay the $5 (or whatever it is now) for their samoas. It's outrageous, but they're delicious, and I've never found a good substitute.

Hey Ugilick! Welcome back. ^_^

The first two threads you mention are tongue-in-cheek and trolling, respectively. The rest of the list... clickbait, sad but true, definitely not true, dunno because I have no interest in the show, aaaand Ford's latest thought experiment. So, maybe not quite as bad as it looks at first glance ...okay, yeah, it's pretty terrible actually. Hope you stick around anyway. XD

'Channel 7 News' sounds implausibly biased. Even when news sources are biased, they generally try not to sound that way. I'd limit the 'scourge of the earth' rhetoric to Calvin.

Other than that, I think you've got a promising start here. Keep writing! ^_^

The subtitle is a bit confusing -- 'An Alternate Ending' implies, at least to me, that there's an original ending somewhere else. But there's nothing else to indicate that this is the case.

Downloaded, regardless.

Anyone else playing/judging this year? There's a ton of entries, including a lot of choice-based stuff. Personally, my strategy is to play a bunch of the shorter pieces first, so that I can be sure I'll be able to score five entries in time, and then start in on the longer pieces.

>it's not that hard to fucking tell someone.

And when was the last time you had to tell a potential sex partner that you had an incurable STD? :P

I agree that 6 months may be going to far towards leniency... but 8 years is a long damn time.
