I have reviewed every game from the 2007 Interactive Fiction Competition, except for An Act of Murder (which I beta tested) and Ghost of the Fireflies (which has a bug which makes it unfinishable).
I have shamelessly ripped off Dan Shiovitz’s format for sorting the reviews. (Within a category, the entries are listed in alphabetical order.)
Recommendations with a star (*) are highly subjective/personal.
Note: these are recommended based on the competition versions. A couple of the games could be bumped up the list with polished post-competition versions (most notably Packrat and My Mind’s Mishmash).
