The full title of this piece of Interactive Fiction is: I Was Too Lazy to Get Started on My EctoComp Entry at a Reasonable Time But I Still Wanted to Enter So I Crapped Out This Masterpiece Or: Deep in the Spooky, Scary Woods.
Hey, don’t be so hard on yourself! It’s better than anything that I’ve come up with recently. In this Choose Your Own Adventure style game, you’re in the woods, the spooky, scary woods! You can cry if you want. You can build a fire. You can try to text a friend. But what you have to be prepared for is that eventually, a witch is going to want to join you and you might very well find your way to Dracula’s castle. How will you handle it? How will you interact with the supernatural? What choices will you make? Will you get the good or the bad ending? Play to find out!
Even thought the author states that this game was just something that was put together in an hour, I always enjoy games like Deep In The Spooky Scary Woods. That’s because I’ve played enough pompous and self-important Interactive Fiction games that I can not help but enjoy one where the whole point is to get the player to laugh and poke fun at the whole genre. Sometimes, you’re in the mood for Interactive Fiction that is big and complex and full of subtext. Sometimes, you just want to play something that’s fun, that’ll keep you amused, and which will take less than 15 minutes to complete.
