Southern Monsters is a work of interactive fiction set in South Arkansas.

In South Arkansas there's talk of a monster. Where he roams, the locust thorns build barbed walls around the riverbank, not far from your house. Your real home isn't made of stock millwork, but telephone lines: an online forum for undiscovered creatures where everyone knows you as cripplefoot. You debate the existence of the strange as your friends leave for distant universities. Outside your childhood bedroom, the cypress trees stretch for miles.

In South Arkansas there's talk of a monster. They say he always follows the creeks.
  • Choice-based narrative design from Kevin Snow.

  • Surreal music and Foley from Priscilla Snow, nightmare noise sampler.
  • An editor's knife wielded by Kiel Warren, linguistic mess sifter.
  • Graphic design from Mike LeMieux, fine vector craftsman.
  • Illustrations from George Kavallines, the devil's crosshatcher.

The art is absolutely lovely and if the quality of Kevin Snow's narrative continues to grow as it has with The Domovoi and Beneath Floes, then I can't imagine anything less than a haunting tale that will stick with me for a very long time.

The art is nice, and the story might be good, but it kind of feels like there are two different and possibly contrasting tones in your game. One side kind of funny and goofy and another side more horror/terror and a little scary. Honestly I'm not too sure how well both can combine.
I personnaly would like to check it out because "nuking a marshmallow pie in the microwave" sounds like a fun thing I would like doing, but I'm afraid most people will be set back by this rather peculiar atmosphere.
