This game received last place in the 1999 IFComp due to a game-crashing bug whenever the player takes inventory.

Perhaps the new self-promotion rule will attract new blood to the community so that new authors can get more feedback.

"If the IF community hadn't been so harsh on Jason Finx and had encouraged him and helped him beta test this game, it could have been spectacular."
I'd encourage you to rethink this comment. 15+ years on, it's not even constructive. For one thing, you don't even know that Finx *requested* help, and for another the existence of a post-comp release at all indicates that a loop of game-feedback-polish did exist.
Plus, there's plenty of games that fall short of greatness. Shall we blame the community on them as well?
