About the Story

"¡Qué frío hacía!; la nieve y la noche comenzaban a caer lentamente sobre la ciudad aquel día de San Silvestre, el último del viejo año. En medio del frío y la oscuridad crecientes, una pobre niña vagaba sola por las calles, desclaza y con la cabeza descubierta [...]. Volvíase a casa hambrienta y medio helada, ¡y parecía tan abatida! Rendida, se sentó en el suelo, en un ángulo que formaban dos casas -–una más saliente que la otra–-, y se acurrucó hecha un ovillo."

La pequeña cerillera es un cuento breve del escritor danés Hans Christian Andersen, publicado por primera vez en diciembre de 1845. En él, Andersen se acerca a la realidad de las clases sociales más humildes y nos habla de la miseria, el dolor y el hambre a través de la historia de una niña anónima que intenta conseguir dinero para su familia vendiendo cerillas en las calles durante una Nochevieja.

Esta fiel adaptación te permite explorar la historia original desde la perspectiva de la ficción interactiva.

Canonical modern interactive fiction for the XXI century, November 6, 2018
This work my JFM Lisaso is a canonical piece of what IF for the XXI century should be. Sadly for you, reader, it is in Spanish.

It is an interactive retelling of Andersen's The Little Match-Seller. Parsed based but with a framework powered by Vorple that make it looks and sounds amazing. Also, it has an advanced UI where you can play solely using hyperlinks or the classical parser, or a simplified one a-la Aaron Reed's Blue Lacuna. So it is a rare example of a hypertext story build using a world model (Inform 6 is under the wraps).

The story is the classical one, gripping and effective powered by interactivity and multimedia. A masterpiece.
