Newly into IF. I've made games but have never published any. By the time I DO release one, it'll have to pass my own perfectionist standards, haha.

Note: I rate games solely by how much I liked them rather than by technical achievement. I might give 5 stars to a 3 star game and 3 to a 5, for instance, depending on how well the game played to my own tastes. This may not be the most fair way to rate games, but there ya go.
