A downloadable festival games for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The 2020 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 eligible for a Best In Show ribbon and prizes, or the Back Garden, with looser entry requirements allowing for more experimental or work-in-progress entries. This year only, there is also a special Late Harvest category for authors who were unable to meet the deadline due to real-world concerns.
