There are a slew of posts about it on Planet IF, but given that my readership is largely outside of the IF community, I'm going to mention here that IFComp '08 is now under way and is accepting votes. There are 35 games which you can get in one bundle. Most of the games can be run on any computer (Linux, Mac, Windows), with a few platform-specific (Windows-only) games.

In case you don't know what interactive fiction is, you can read Emily Short's short introduction. If you're looking for the interpreters needed to run the games, you can check out the relevant page on IFWiki.

This is the fourteenth year that the competition has been running (I was eleven when it started!), and it's the first in which I've decided to vote. Please join me.
