Michael Lutz’s piece of Twine-crafted interactive fiction horrorpiece My Father’s Long, Long Legs might just be one of the finest, most cleverly executed pieces of freaky fiction I’ve ever read. Best enjoyed with the lights out and the sound up (and headphones on, if you’re rockin’ ‘em), it tells the story of a girl whose father one day suddenly comes home from work and begins digging a hole in the dirt-floored basement of their house. Day after day he spends every free moment down there, coming up only to eat, use the bathroom, and work… and once his factory closes, he stops coming up at all. But maybe that’s for the best, since as the years drag by, he begins to resemble less and less the man she once knew… and something less than human. Just click the bolded text to choose how you want to advance through the story. Note that in some cases, the game may appear to stop without giving you a choice, but this is just for effect… just wait a moment for the next bit of text to appear.
