Margot's Room, a Halloween tale by Emily Carroll

Previously previously previously.

While the story is best enjoyed in its unique interactive form, here's a "walkthrough" for those who want to make sure they read it in chronological order:

I. click the flowers
II. click the doll
III. click the open window
IV. click the mirror
V. click the lower-left corner

I just finished reading this, and there are no words for how much I love it. Delightfully creepy.

I do admit that it took me until the third week to figure out the navigation. Mostly because I didn't recognize the flowers as flowers.

Gahhh. The way the last installment is set up tweaks my Nonononono button so hard. I haven't been able to bring myself to finish it yet. But this is extremely cool.

Maybe it's the headache, but I can't find Part V anywhere.

If anyone's like me and doesn't have part V.

Very creepy and well done.
