I have also started a thread of Recommended ADRIFT Games, which has been supplemented by Richard Otter. Notably, his recommendations are all 2007 & earlier, while mine are all 2008 or later. I hope they form a complementary and reliable source, although I know there will likely be some gaps. For example, Marika the Offering is on neither list, even though it is highly recommendable. Hopefully the ADRIFT community can build on this so that we can have a more comprehensive and better curated list. I also hope it will spur reviews at adrift.co.
I have also added the ADRIFT 2010 SummerComp games to the main site. These games are already on IFDB-- several reviewed, though those reviews now need to be transplanted to the ADRIFT site in some way. Same goes for many games, like Yon Astounding Castle! of some sort, which have reviews on major IF sites like IFDB, but have received zero response from the ADRIFT community in particular. Campbell claims to be working on this, so.
As for the continuing IFDB flood: I have only added reviews for The Challenge for now. I see that Wade Clarke has posted a review for I Was a Teenage Headless Experiment, for which I am grateful. Mr. Clarke (horror aficionado & author of Leadlight) was one of the several official judges for ECTOCOMP 2010 who is not a regular member of the ADRIFT community, for which he is to be commended. We hope to have more like him drop by and give some ADRIFT games a look. I will attempt to upload the rest of the ECTOCOMP 2010 games tomorrow. Also, secret rumor time: an unverified voice whispers, "ECTOCOMP 2011 may be open to all platforms!"
Here's a run-down of what I have uploaded so far and still need to upload (as far as I know):

I admit to some surprise at seeing so little documentation of the PAX Speed-IF games on IFDB. I may also wish to create pages for those, but that's not in the immediate pipeline. I've found uploading lots of stuff and keeping the conversation going to be pretty time-consuming, but rewarding thus far. Let's hope the former reduces and the latter remains.
So, looking at about 21 more pages to create, then reviews. Might as well look at starting a thread on intfiction.org, too, but do feel free to join at the ADRIFT Forum or by posting a review on the ADRIFT Adventures page.
