Everybody Dies

by Jim Munroe

About the Story

It starts with a metalhead, Graham, realizing that throwing that shopping cart over the bridge was not the great idea he thought it was. Even if it did get him out of washroom duty at Cost Cutters.

Illustrated by Michael Cho.

Took third place at IFComp 2008 (2nd place for Miss Congeniality.)

Play This Thing!
Everybody Dies is a short, sharp interactive story -- with illustrations. It's got lots going for it, and it just took third place in the yearly interactive fiction competition. You should definitely play.

Emily Short's Interactive Storytelling
IF Competition Review for Everybody Dies
I really like this. This is a tight game. The writing is snappy ó Iím reminded of Sherwin here and there, as it shares a Sherwinesque interest in the lifestyles of the poor and not-that-glamorous. But itís distinctly its own thing. The viewpoint characters have personality. The illustrations are stylish and good. High production values there. Puzzles are pretty easy but manage to be interesting anyway, because they mostly have to do with tense or personally-charged situations. And the implementation is excellent; perhaps itís telling that this game boasts eighteen beta-testers. All in all, itís a piece that feels assured about what itís trying to achieve.
