The winner of IFComp 2021—and the win was well-earned.

3. Closure
by Sarah Willson
(2021)
Average member rating: (18 ratings)

OverThinking says:

Another IFComp 2021 entry. The writing is really charming, and the texting device is well-utilized.

4. Counterfeit Monkey

I mean, come on.

5. Creatures Such As We

6. Mermaids of Ganymede
by Seth Paxton
(2021)
Average member rating: (9 ratings)

OverThinking says:

Another IFComp 2021 entry. It's clear from the get go that your choices matter and are irrevocable, and it got me invested quickly enough that I didn't get frustrated when it was unforgiving.

7. Save the Date
by Chris Cornell
(2013)
Average member rating: (27 ratings)

OverThinking says:

Has the honor of being the first piece of IF I ever played (at least, the first while knowing what IF was), and it got me hooked immediately.

8. Soft Earth

A sweet, beautiful little story that makes excellent use of Twine.

9. Toby's Nose

11. What Heart Heard Of, Ghost Guessed
by Amanda Walker
(2021)
Average member rating: (14 ratings)

OverThinking says:

Another IFComp 2021 entry. Uses a set of custom verbs to great effect. I have a bit of a soft spot for this kind of horror.

12. With Those We Love Alive
by Porpentine and Brenda Neotenomie
(2014)
Average member rating: (85 ratings)

13. You are SpamZapper 3.1
by Leon Arnott
(2021)
Average member rating: (18 ratings)

OverThinking says:

Another IFComp 2021 entry. I was initially put off by some of the interface (and by the length, which was about twice as long as the comp listing claimed), but it's since grown on me.
