Spring Thing 2015

Spring Thing, also known as the Fall Fooferall, was redesigned this year to make it a space where people working on all kinds of text games can come together to celebrate making, releasing, and playing new stuff.

Formerly a "competition" for interactive fiction, the rebranding as a "festival" indicates a new focus on showcasing and promoting new games in a friendly, less competitive environment.

Aaron Reed organized the festival this year.

"Toby's Nose" by Chandler Groover was awarded both the Audience Choice and Alumni's Choice ribbons.
