  1. Hello. I’ve noticed that there’s one entry written in german this year. Are there any german reviews? I was searching Google and found nothing.

  2. I posted reviews last year under one of my other handles (Imrihamun) and I’m going at it again this year (see linked website) with a revised and slightly more clinical schematic.

    1. I’ve increased my spoilers space, and changed the syndication setting to “short”. Let me know if this qualifies now as spoiler space. If not, how much spoiler space need I provide?

      1. What I mean by “not spoiler-cut” is that the reader doesn’t have to click “more” (or some equivalent) in order to see the spoilers. For a single review, that’s probably not a problem, and you’ve given a bunch of lines of spoiler space, which is great — but if you have numerous reviews on a page, it might be hard for the reader to scan down the page to the reviews that interest him without also browsing the undesirable ones.

        I don’t know the details of your blogging software, so I can’t tell you more specifically how you might do that.

    2. Now in process of switching over to a wordpress blog (which I’ll announce once I have it formatted to my liking). How do I create spoiler space (or show only the first paragraph of a post) in the word press blog?

    3. I’ve moved my reviews to a wordpress blog. I will be deactivating the three existing reviews at my original blog shortly. Please update the link to my reviews

      Along with other advantages of WordPress, my reviews are now correctly spoiler-cut.

      George Penrose.

      1. Maybe the folks who run these sites and blogs will post 2009 reviews in the next weeks. It’s still very early in the comp. As you wrote, it’s worth keeping an eye on.

  3. btw. one of those sites is run by Jacqueline A. Lott from IntroComp. And she reviews IFComp games every year, as far as I’m concerned.
