I'm a rarity in the IF community: I only play them, I do not author them, except in that sense that IF is a story told together by the author and the player.

about my ratings: if your "interactive" fiction is just static fiction with "click for next paragraph", expect a single star or 2 if the writing or story are any good. Conversely, if your game is just a plain, boring, puerile game with not enough fiction or good prose - like old Scott Adams wackyness - expect low rates too.
