A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The 2019 Spring Thing Festival of Interactive Fiction features twenty new interactive stories submitted by authors working across the spectrum of text games. Participants chose to place their games in either the Main Festival, where they were up for ribbons and prizes, or the Back Garden, with looser entry requirements allowing for more experimental or work-in-progress entries.

The Spring Thing entries come in a variety of formats. See the Platform Instructions section of the official site for details on how to play a game in a particular format.

Many of the entries can also be played online from the festival's website.

The only game not included in the download is The Ballroom, which can only be played online.
