Boogle riffs on Google default messages and online ads to create a creeping sense of dread. The eponymous search engine is an NPC in its own right, which directs your search results to serve its own purposes. It's a mood piece more than a game, really; the story is not particularly fleshed out, but the idea is so very creepy.
This game deserves a mention of multimedia, because it makes ingenious use of otherwise basic Twine functions to replicate familiar sights.
In this game, you have a 'brand new' google engine that's spooky: Boogle.
You find out that boogle is more than you expected, in a fairly funny and gruesome sort of way. The surprises are the best part, so I won't describe it much more. Good fun-to-time ratio.
