The votes are all in and counted – well done to Felicity Banks and After The Flag Fell!
There’s some surprises! I expected Instrument of the Gods to do a lot better, and I’d like to have seen Frogmen and Sea of Sands to at least register in the top 6.
There’s also an interesting conflict of interests issue. After The Flag Fell seems like a Choice of Games entry, and top prize is turning the gamebook into an app from Tin Man Games. These are different companies, so it will be interesting to see how that gets resolved.
We’ve had lots of entries this year, with some good ideas and some good writing. Congratulations to everyone who managed to get an entry out! Don’t worry about where you finished in the competition, prize money, good or bad reviews. You have a finished gamebook, which is more than most people will ever have. I look forward to reading you next year.
