Spring Thing is an annual interactive fiction (text adventure, if you prefer) competition that has been more or less going on since 2002 and is currently celebrating its tenth anniversary by asking you to download, play and vote on those lovely Spring Thing 2012 entries. There are four games on offer and they are all happily freeware: The White Bull, Sleuth, The Rocket Man From Sea and The Egg and the Newbie. Oh, and if you are interested in voting, you'll have to do so before May 6.
To play the games you'll be needing the appropriate interpreters, meaning you should, at the very least, download the incredibly handy Gargoyle (PC) or Spatterlight (Mac) and, provided you also want to enjoy Sleuth's mysteries, Quest.
