And with that, the reviews are done for this year. Many, many thanks to our all-star team of reviewers. The IF community couldn’t exist without the generosity of talented volunteers, and I’m seriously impressed by how many great people agreed to help out.
A reminder: for next year’s Individual Whatever categories, we have a set of polls up at IFDB, as a way of remembering possible nominees and suggesting them to others. If you happen across a good character or puzzle in an eligible game, consider suggesting it on the appropriate list: Individual Puzzle, Individual NPC, Individual PC.
That said, here’s the thing you’re really here for: the full list of reviews.
