2020 Spring Thing Festival

The 2020 Spring Thing Festival of Interactive Fiction features twenty new interactive stories submitted by authors working across the spectrum of text-based games. The Thing focuses on bringing together new text games of all kinds: choice-based stories, gamebooks, hypertext fictions, visual novels, text adventures, narrative roguelikes, and wild new experiments.

Participants choose to place their games in either the Main Festival, where they are eligible for a Best In Show ribbon and prizes, or in the Back Garden, where looser entry requirements allow for more experimental or work-in-progress entries.

There’s something for everyone in this years’ submissions: sci-fi, supernatural, crime, humour, action/adventure, poetry, fantasy, romance, cyberpunk, mystery, historical, apocalyptic and much more.

The 2020 Festival opened on April 2nd, with all entries now available to play online and/or offline. Ribbon nominations will open on April 9th and close on May 3rd, so there’s plenty of time to play at least two games and then make your nominations for Festival Ribbons.

Visit The 2020 Spring Thing Festival website to experience some fresh interactive fiction, pick your favourites from those you play, and then have your say.
