Byzantine Perspective (2009)

Although the annual IF competition is a great event, there is one big problem: Usually, the number of seriously buggy and broken entries is high. That leads to many reviewers' threshold for believing a game to be broken to be very low. Which means that sometimes, a game will be considered broken which really isn't. A trap which Byzantine Perspective fell into until word got around that what it made appear broken was in fact a big puzzle. In the end, the game placed in midfield, but it was a lot more popular with the other authors (who, by definition, are probably willing to put more trust into a fellow author's work), taking third place in the so-called Miss Congeniality contest (voted by the authors).

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!
