The Non-Comp Review Project is a project begun by Greg Boettcher. The current editor (beginning in 2006) is Peter Mattsson. The goal of the project is to review every IF game that was not entered in a competition for the given year, although AIF games and games not available in English are usually excluded.

The production schedule is roughly:

  • A rough-list of the year's games is assembled around the end of August. People who have expressed an interest in reviewing are contacted and asked which games they'd like to review.
  • Reviews are written and submitted to Greg from September to December. Especially December. The list of titles is updated as new games get released, and more people are contacted if needed.
  • The entire collection of reviews is published both on Greg's site and on the rec.games.int-fiction newsgroup as soon as reasonable in January of the new year.
