This is legit giving me the creeps.

I only got one ending but I'll  try and find time to get at least a few other.

As a game composed in twelve hours this is a great fusion of jamming with the 'flash fiction' tradition. I love Twine as a platform and the interactive potential offers. This story is fitting for the jam and offers a surreal and disjointed journey confronting a number of twisted mythological and just plain odd characters. I think the game works well as a dreamlike vignette. The inclusion of multiple endings is great - I ultimately was able to climb into the mirror and reach a resolution to the story with my doppelganger. From a writing perspective, this is a great achievement for flash fiction, but if you continue with this model of composing, I'd encourage ways to explore creating a more structured narrative, as this may be able to explore core ideas in more depth. But as a horror experience, confronting a surrealistic set of random disturbing images and characters works well. Good job! 

Thanks for submitting You Are Alone in a Dark Room to the SCREAM LITE jam!

I love the illustrations! I only have one issue: I can't seem to scroll down, so I can't advance past the really long passages.

Thanks for letting me know! It's my first time using Twine.

I think I figured out a quick fix, I made the file embedded instead of fullscreen and added scroll bars, hopefully that does the trick.

Thanks for checking it out!
