“What Are Little Girls Made Of?”

“What Are Little Girls Made Of?” was written in three hours for Ectocomp 2012, the annual Halloween SpeedIF competition, where it received 2nd place. It’s a short, dark, and disturbing game that latches onto a couple childhood fears and never lets go.

When I first released this game, it was in parser format, but one of the most frequent questions I received was, “Why did you use a parser format instead of a choice-based system?”

I didn’t have a good answer for that!  So, in honor of the season, I’ve rebuilt it as a Twine game (with additional content and polish) and I’m re-releasing it here.
