In which I dig heavily into the ideas behind my latest creation and why I put myself out there to be judged via this year's Interactive Fiction Competition, even though I didn't expect people to get it.
I won't be addressing all specific criticisms here, but I have been paying attention and appreciate everyone who took the time to write reviews, comments and emails. It's been valuable for me to have this much attention from constructive and dedicated people. I'm going to discuss my intentions in some detail here. Most of them didn't work, but hopefully they'll be a teensy bit interesting anyway.
