Sam, his girlfriend Chris, and his best friend Jake are camping in the woods when they are attacked by a strange creature.  

This is an extremely simple maze game with one goal- find your friends and get away from the creature.

There are five possible endings (not counting deaths.)  One good, one not-so-good, and one special ending for each character.

Creature 2

Sam, Chris, and Jake have made it to the ranger station, but the creature is still outside.
Help them discover what it is, and make their escape.

Erika Bakes A Cake

Ever wonder what the stars of Akuma Kira Erika do when they're not slaying monsters?

Erika may be the destined savior of the land, but sometimes she just wants to be a normal girl.  And today, that means entering a cake-baking contest!  Will sweet victory be hers?  Or will her cooking skills prove to be as lethal as her blade?

90 Minute Game Challenge! (thanks, Morgan_R)

Edit:  Okay, a couple of notes.

-- What is the 90 Minute Game Challenge?  

If you try to publish a storygame less than 90 minutes after creating it, the editor won't let you; it says "No one can write a good story in less than 90 minutes."  This is an attempt to prove it wrong. 

-- Where can I find the show this is based on?

You can't.  Akuma Kira Erika is not a real show.  I made it up.  

Featured Story Haunted

A tragic tale of love and loss.

You've inherited a haunted cottage.  You wish to convince the ghost within to move on to the afterlife.

Show her items you find around the house to awaken her memories.  But be careful, you have a limited amount of time, and not all memories are pleasant ones!

Hints- each item is tied to one of four emotions.  Try to figure out and focus on specific feelings to obtain the "better" endings.

Extra special hint- try using items in other rooms besides the parlor.

There are, if I did this correctly, thirteen different endings to this game.  Your score should correspond to the number ending you received.  (Higher numbers are not necessarily better.) 

Note- in order to fix the scoring bug, I had to put a blank page after the ending.  When you click on "End Game and Leave Comments" you will go to an otherwise blank page titled "The End"-- this is not a bug.  Click on End Game and Leave Comments again to access the comments screen.

Disclaimer- opinions expressed as to the nature of the afterlife are not necessarily those of the author or anyone else.  If games about ghosts offend you, feel free to go enjoy someone else's game.  I suggest 8 goals, 28 rolls.  Unless dice games offend you.

Hell Girl: The Shattered Mirror


A short piece of fanfic, based on the Hell Girl anime.

High School Romance

You need a date for the homecoming dance!  Can you find one in time?

House of Horror

You came to deliver a pizza. A mysterious voice told you to come inside. Big mistake. Now, only your knowledge of horror movie trivia will enable you to escape the House of Horror.

(Yes, it's a quiz. A while back, I thought "why do all quizzes have to be just a series of questions? How about a quiz with some kind of a plot?" So here it is.)



Unwilling to allow one man unchecked power over the masses, yet fearful of creating the world's first democratic system, the Ancients of the kingdom of Sylas set up a a system both wise and fair.

"One man shall rule the land, but he will not be chosen by vote, nor by inheritance. The right to rule will be held in the hands of one intelligent and righteous man. This man will be called --- the KINGMAKER."

You are the Kingmaker. You will never rule this land as its King, but you will choose the man who does. Choose wisely and choose well, Kingmaker. The future of Sylas rests with you.

Panda Quiz

As you may have noticed, I recently changed my avatar to the WWF logo. 

That got me thinking about pandas, and that made me feel like writing a fairly short and easy quiz about them.

So, here's a little quiz about the Giant Panda- hope you like it. 

(I should mention, this is my first experiment with variables and pictures. . . hope it works.)

Lost Flame
unpublished , coauthor

You will play as a phoenix named Enya, a young bird with a lot to learn about her world and it's joys and cruelties. 

In this story you start out living with your tribe, one of the few that live and grow in this part of the world. But, one day, their control over heat turns against them with a harsh sting and burns down the forest that they live in. This tragic turn of events leaves you without a home, a tribe, or a flame.

Survive predator attacks, make friends, and find your flame once more in this original adventure.

Try this: go up to the top of the text box, where it's got all the options for bold, italic, etc.  Find the abc dropdown and disable SCAYT.

Unnecessary personal details; I'm having surgery at the end of September, and they're telling me the recovery time is at least a month.  Unfortunately, my job only pays half wage for short term disability. So, I'm trying to find something I can do to make up for lost wages.  And my options are kinda limited by the fact that I can't do much that isn't just using a computer.

If I can get this funded, I can afford to take medical leave. And I'll have 50+ hours a week to devote solely to the creation of this story.

(Visual novels, for non-otaku, are like a choose-your-own-adventure, but with pictures and music.) 

This one is part of the ever-popular "transfer student discovers their new school is weird" genre.  
In this case, it turns out to be populated entirely by demons. 
Fortunately, you aren't the usual faceless everyman VN protagonist.  You're a serial killer.  

The basic game has demon hunters, succubi, werewolves, and over 20 different endings. 
You can play as male or female, each with their own unique storyline, and there are male and female optional romance sidequests for both characters. 

There are also options to fund extended editions of the game.  These take the basic edition and add new content:

This is the version I would buy, if I were purchasing the game instead of writing it.
New romance options, more characters, and a whole new storyline focused on the relationship-building aspect of the game. 

I was actually thinking of @EndMaster when I made this version.  XD  Specifically, the several times he's complained about Bioware mucking up the story with pointless romance sidequests.  So, this is for you: a version focused on grimdark.  
More 'bad' endings, more options for NPC death, and a whole new storyline focused on the serial-killer aspect of the game.
Yes, the basic edition's romance is still in there, but you can ignore it.  In fact, you can kill off all the love interests so you don't have to worry about accidentally triggering a love story. 

The Ultra-Deluxe version of the game.  Has all the content from both Lovely and Deadly editions, as well as a third completely new storyline.

(I can't figure out how to get the cool widget to work properly. Yes, someone with better coding skills is working on the actual game.)

What is this I don't even on 7/28/2016 6:33:19 PM

Oh my god yes, isn't it a vn too?

Unhappy endings that are happy on 7/27/2016 4:14:56 PM

Yeah, I liked that movie too.  

Unhappy endings that are happy on 7/27/2016 10:49:06 AM

Personally, I think 2/3 of the endings are happy ones.

At first I read this as "logic birthdays are also pretentious" and I wondered what a logic birthday was.

Also, real birthdays are the best.  I refuse to give up my day of awesomeness and fun just because some people are boring.
