For your consideration: XYZZY-eligible Best Implementation of 2021 - an IFDB Poll

by MathBrush

This is for suggesting games released in 2021 which you think might be worth considering for Best Implementation in the XYZZY awards. Recall that best implementation is intended for excellence in parser use such as default responses and implementation; Best Use of Innovation is a related award for overall creativity in programming in any medium.

This is not a zeroth-round nomination. This is not an official list. The point of poll is partly to suggest games that others might want to check out, partly as your own reminder for when XYZZY season comes around.

This isn't intended as a straw poll; please don't upvote games already on the list.
