Seasons greetings! 2019 was an extraordinary year for the Interactive Fiction Technology Foundation. A few highlights:
We delivered a report about the state of accessibility and interactive fiction, with help from dozens of volunteers and in partnership with AbleGamers.
We registered a trademark to help legally protect the Twine project.
We ran an amazing narrative-games conference in Boston, and we’re planning to do it again next year in Urbana-Champaign! (And please do submit your talk proposals by this time next month, by the way…)
The IF community forums at https://intfiction.org re-launched under IFTF’s stewardship, on a brand-new server, and running modern forum software. Among its new features: a new sub-forum for discussing IF in education.
As always, the generosity of the worldwide IF community powers everything that IFTF accomplishes. Please do keep us in mind when thinking of your year-end charitable gifts! Have a look at our giving page for more information about how you can contribute to our efforts with a tax-deductible donation.
Thank you so much for your consideration, and for continuing to follow IFTF’s ongoing misson. We expect another exciting year with 2020. For now, warmest holiday wishes from IFTF to you and yours!
P.S. IFTF has a page on LinkedIn now! If you use that network, please feel free to follow us there as well.
