The annual XYZZY Awards are here! The XYZZY Awards are given for the best works of interactive fiction released the previous year in a variety of categories (Best Writing, Best Puzzles, and so on).
Anyone can vote in the XYZZY awards; in this round, all games released in 2011 are eligible to become finalists. In the next round of voting, starting in February, the winners will be selected from the most popular finalists in each category.
This year, there are a number of fantastic ChoiceScript games on the list! (Here they are in alphabetical order.)
- Dead Already?
- The Land of Three Classes
- Marine Raider
- Mobile Armored Marine
- The Race
- Zombie Exodus
There are also a number of other multiple-choice games on the list this year, including The Play (written in Undum), as well as award-winning parser-based text adventures, such as Taco Fiction, which won first place in this year’s IFComp.
