Provide Input for IF Comp 2019

The 25th(!) annual Interactive Fiction Competition is gearing up, and the organizers would love your input. The survey will stay open throughout the summer, but they'll start checking responses in a week, so the sooner you take the survey the sooner your ideas will be taken into account. Please also share this link with any friends who like stories or games... they're trying to reach a broader audience. Thanks!

Please take the 2019 IFComp (Pre-Comp) Survey
