Entrant, Event - 2003 IF Art Show
Essentially a single-puzzle game with a large number of interesting diversionary activities -- as befits this entry in the 2003 Art Show. Your mission is to defeat the cute little rabbit destroying your beloved garden. Whether or not you succeed in doing so, there are a large number of entertaining tools and garden implements with which you can wreak havoc.

In this charming little gem from the IF art show, you play an amateur farmer trying to keep a rabbit out of his garden by catching it. As is usual for the art show, the focus is on the experience more than puzzles, so you have tons of items that are well-implemented (a ladder, a tractor, a chainsaw, a net, carrots, etc.) and can use them in creative ways.
The writing is cute, and much of the subtext is about your feelings about the rabbit.
It was based on a true story. I was impatient, so I looked up the ending, but winning isn't really the point; the point is your experience.

Richly simulated worlds by Emily Short
IF in which the setting is especially deeply simulated, especially works that implement traditionally difficult systems (fire, liquid, ropes, recording devices, etc).
Highly polished gameplay by Emily Short
Games that are exceptionally well-tested and smooth to play. They may not always be the most original works, but the implementation is strong, offering minimal frustration with guess-the-verb and other common flaws.
