Child’s Play Nominated for Six XYZZY Awards

Hey, look at that: while I was all sick and stuff, my text adventure Child’s Play was nominated for six XYZZY Awards, including “Best Game” and “Best Writing”. The XYZZY Awards are the IF community’s Oscar-like awards for the year’s best games by category, and I’m tickled pink to be nominated for six.

Anyone can vote for the final winners, but if you do so, please play through the games in a given category. The games are fairly short, quite good, and most come with a walkthrough or hints (including mine) so you can breeze right through them. If you play the five nominated for “Best Game” you’ll have seen the majority of nominated games right there.

  1. WOOHOO!!!! Congratulations!!!! As Greer used to always say, it’s nice to be courted, even if you’re never…….well, maybe I should stop there and just say it’s always nice to be courted, er, nominated! It certainly should make you feel at least a tiny bit better, as Geof says! WE’RE certainly proud of you!


  2. Congrats to you! Now repeat after me, “It’s an honor just to be nominated…”

    Seriously, I am pulling for you to do well.
