IFComp 2013 reviews--100,000 years

IFComp is an annual competition for short works of interactive fiction.  "100,000 years, the longest short story ever" is published by Pierre Chevalier.
James Michner writes stories covering 100,000 years, but they aren’t short.  I’m not drawn in by this description.

Final opinion:  A story that loops around forever. Not enough poetry in the language.  Not enough purpose in the cycle. Includes buttons to move the story forward or backwards, but otherwise completely non-interactive. I don't see evidence of much effort by the author.
