You are a Blob! (a SoftSoft Twine game)

This year I decided to enter Ectocomp, a yearly Halloween competition hosted by someone in the IF community (yes, I know this overlaps with the IF Comp, I dunno either). You can read more about it here. I downloaded Twine and everything just for it too.

You are a Blob actually wasn't my first game idea (a choice-based adaption of "Jacked Up Jack-o-Lantern" from the Regular Show Trilogy of Terror 3), but an eight-year-old was getting cold feet about entering, so I vowed to make a game so crappy it would make everyone else's game shine like gold! Which turned out to be no small feat, because everyone and their mother entered a game (or two) this year, for a grand total of 24 entries. But I think I gave it a good run.

If you like this game, please consider downloading (and judging!) the whole set. You can play most of these games through an interpreter like Gargoyle.

The Sad D00d

sadd00d.gif

A lot went into this run of the sad d00d and I'd say a good 8 years of work is what is at exhibit here.. You have interactive fiction at.. Well, I don't know about its finest, but it's applicable. You're this d00d, and like he's sad... what do you do? There are at least 5 threads for each choice, and you have the opportunity to add to it...

Sad d00d could end up anywhere, there's so much missing here, so much that should be parsed, and yet it is all in tact and should stay on the side.

    And it even includes its own unfinished traditionally done illustrations with charcoal and pastels.

Being that the story has been mainly a collaboration of exchanges between me and the older ug, it is my honour to present it on ice, The Sad D00d. Paste discussion below as well, add if you're intrigued, and the visual aid is on the first few pages. Any more and I'd be giving spoilers. -BC_

You Have to Put the Shamrock in the Pot of Gold

noun_in_noun cover.png

A You-Have-to-Put-the-Noun-in-the-Other-Noun game for St. Pat's! Note that I couldn't be bothered to put a leprechaun in this; if that really bugs you for some reason pretend that the backstory for this game involves an epic quest to beat a leprechaun to the rainbow's end.

Note that this does require an interpreter to play. If you're playing from the launcher you should be good to go, but if you're not, try Zoom for the Mac or Gargoyle for Windows.
