Nowhere To Go But Nowhere

LONG TIME NO SEE

I've been meaning to start making small games again for like half a year now, so obviously the first thing I ended up doing is a weird, barely interactive narrative instead of a game, by abusing a Javascript library made for slideshows with maps in them. It works best in Chrome, but should be fine in any reasonably modern browser.

It seems like the map tiles get loaded fairly slowly sometimes, so you might have to wait for a few seconds after each slide. Sorry! :(

Controls:
-Click the arrows in the left box to progress through the story.
-Red links lead to outside sites which contain Wikipedia articles many varied sources of relevant info. They're 100% optional. Be sure to right-click and open these in a new tab, since they'll open in the game tab otherwise, and you'll have to start over.
-You can drag the map with the mouse to pan it, and use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom in/out. If you've used Google Maps, you cool.

Creepy Pasta

Playing around with the Wolf3D map editor turned out to be pretty fun. Whilst browsing tutorials for help and map ideas, I came across the concept of a deja vu room; a room that looks identical to one a player has already passed through.

I thought it would be a fun idea if there was a recurring room that got creepier every time the player passed through it. The gameplay experience (I hope) should be reminiscent of horror stories, or the internet variant called creepy pasta.

I anticipated that such a map layout could be quite boring to a player as it would require a linear route to the exit. To help counter the problem, I made the segments between each version of the creepy room full of side rooms and secrets that the player can explore.
