About the Story

A psychodickensian litadventure where you summon a series of customizable ghosts to harangue a curmudgeon into finding the Christmas spirit.

This is a short story that takes about half an hour to complete (depending on reading speed). You can use strategy, or just do the story. Enjoy a new take on a classic, inspired by half-remembered school plays, a disdain for reality, and a graduate degree in procedural storytelling!

Postmodernist take on Scrooge, December 17, 2016
by streever (America)
This beautifully-designed Twine work is a far from faithful retelling of A Christmas Carol, letting you summon an arbitrary number of ghosts of [your choice] to torment, berate, and possibly even square off in the squared circle for a wrestling match with old Elvenoozer Sprodge [Avenizer Flooge|Iboneezo Sprogue].

A mad-lib approach combined with randomized names for people and places contribute to the non-sequitur humor of this piece.

There are multiple endings, but they seem to be determined more by your final actions than the path you take to the ending, so feel free to experiment and have fun.
