Rate This Game:

You rub your eyes and peer out of the taxi window, confirming that you have arrived at your destination.

You're here to investigate why no one has heard from your brother, Thomas, in weeks. Though the two of you have never been particularly close, he’s still your brother, and you can’t help but be concerned about his apparent disappearance.

What horrors await you inside the Arkham Hunting Lodge?

A hypertext horror game designed for Ectocomp 2012, and inspired by the likes of Hunt the Wumpus.

NOTE: If the text is being cut off for you, try right clicking the game and opening the frame in a new tab/window.

Really great. Classic feeling, like old text adventures and, yes, Hunt the Wumpus. Atmospheric and creepy, too! Also, very game-like, as opposed to just a CYOA. Nice job!

I have text disappearing at the bottom, last readable line is "freely floating through the air, as if " - and I can't seem to make it scroll. Any ideas? Apart from that, ah, Arkham, great :D

I managed to get it working by right-clicking and choosing open frame in new tab. Might be a wrong assumption about font sizes or game jolt maximum window size?

Huh, weird. I thought I made the window large enough, but perhaps it automatically changes size depending on the monitor? Hm.

Oh, I just made the window larger after your comments, so that's why! Glad to hear it seems to be fine now.

I considered including the map, but decided to let players make their own map like they would have while playing old text adventures. Will please some people, and annoy others, I'm sure!
