(Autocorrect tried to turn that title into Reinsert???)

So TMBG's newsletter linked this New Yorker review (which is extremely wrong about The Else, their second-best record of all time), and it had something in the sidebar about Anne Hathaway, and that reminded me that I still needed to look up this game Isaac and Robert were telling me about. And, uh.

Anne Hathaway: Erotic Mouthscape

Not safe for anywhere.

Poking around afterwards, in a mild state of shell shock, I found that it was part of a Twine-based game jam on Porpentine's site. So I ended up playing a bunch of Twine games.

Porpentine appears to be the real deal, and I've had good luck with her shorter stuff -- "All I want is for all of my friends to become insanely powerful" is basically perfect. Cry$tal Warrior Ke$ha isssss uuuhhhhhhhh. I'm gonna dive into her longer and freakier stuff later, starting with Howling Dogs. Following her trail led me to some other peoples' stuff too:

(A technical note: watch out for mojibake. It you see any textual garbage, change your browser's charset to UTF-8.)

I also ran into THIS little tangent (part one, part two), which, I can't tell if they're talking about an actual game they played or having us on or writing some collaborative story or what? Google appears to know NOTHING about this game aside from these two posts, and it may or may not be real.

Anyway I'm definitely going to make a Twine game.

If you pass the rabid child, say "hammer down" for me.
