Adrift Vaporware Awards 2005

From IFWiki

The Adrift Vaporware Awards 2005 was a new competition to give recognition to authors and not-quite-authors who failed to produce an Adrift game in 2005. The competition organizer was Stefan Donati a.k.a. Shuarian.

The competition ended prematurely on 06-Jan-2006, when the comp organizer announced that there were no nominations whatsoever, and thus, after some deliberation, decided that he himself, Stefan Donati, was the overall winner of the comp.
