SmoochieComp 2001 is a reviewed competition for short games with a plot focusing on love or romance. Games can be downloaded at, and the reviews (by Paul O'Brian, Kathleen Fischer, Stephen Granade, Lucian P. Smith, Duncan Stevens, Bridget Sweeney, and J. Robinson Wheeler) may be viewed here. I have also written unofficial responses, by request.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this project, both reviewers and entrants. I appreciate all of your support -- and special thanks to Stephen Granade for hosting the reviews, sparing me precious webspace.
