Click to read.Entries for the 11th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition are in, and the competition is now open for voting. The Interactive Fiction Competition has been a major factor in the recent renaissance of the \"text adventure,\" aka Interactive Fiction. Plenty of new writers are using open source tools to make some amazing stories, the likes of which were never found in the Infocom catalog. And if you get that joke, you\'re exactly the kind of person who should check this out.

Judging and voting on the entries will happen over the next six weeks. Voting is open to anyone who has not entered a game into the competition, and the games are free to download and view on most computer systems. The IF Competition has organized packages of necessary reader applications, which is super handy for anyone wanting to look into this genre of gaming for the first time.

Thanks to Game Girl Advance for posting a recent heads-up about this year\'s competition.
