About the Story

YOU are Eric Coleman! You and your older brother, Brock Coleman, are visiting Hollowport, Maine with your father, who is there to deliver a lecture on criminology. While walking through the sleepy town, you hear frightened whispers of strange happenings at Skullshadow Island out in Twilight Bay. Secret tales of shadowy figures spied from shore at midnight. Of honest fishermen unreturned from their trips. Being stout, adventurous young mystery boys, you decided to rent a canoe and go investigate.

not really, but it comes to mind. There's far more prose than old Scott Adams whackyness, but that's just because we have these fucking huge cloud digital storages these days, you see, and so we should fill them with whatever crap we can and we do. But in essence, it is still 8-bits wonkyness for wonkyness sake, despite all the (bad) prose. It also has pictures, yay!

after less than 2 minutes of mindless clicking, I got to an ending in this short hypertext CYAO:

(Spoiler - click to show)
He walks with slow purpose into the sea.

You continue on with your quest and eventually solve the mystery of the Mysterious Shadows of Skullshadow Island. Congratulations! The town throws a parade, which eases the pain of your father’s loss, and you glide through life with relative ease and contentment, dwelling not on your brother’s bones asleep in the murky bed of Twilight Bay.

it's so poor and pointless that even that hinting at a scrap of a plot feels useless...

Let's face it what this really is, ok? This guy has a website shockfull with blinking ads and gossip links, so he should put on some content to go along, right? Let it be an 8-bit text adventure CYAO with pictures for a change... and the depressing thing is that I'm not actually sure it is less degrading than playing other such short pieces of shrimp and being presented a patreon link at the end.

ah, yes. let's hurrah for the comeback of commercial IF, a time when people ask how to monetize on new futile pieces of crap modeled after the most atrociously bad from the 80s before even attempting to write it...
