About the Story

‘Ladybirds. What a summer for them! They were simply everywhere. Dorothy was ordinarily happy to see them in her garden, but this year there was such an abundance of them that it really was rather alarming…’



Something is amiss in the peaceful surroundings of the English countryside. Ladybirds are everywhere and Dorothy Clutterbuck is quite sure that they have sinister intent. But who will believe the delusions of a middle-aged spinster locked up in the secret prison known only as The Institute? Will anyone listen before it is too late to turn back the red tide? With the help of one or two friends along the way, it might just be possible to overcome the dangers and the disbelief, but the path is fraught with peril. Can Dorothy triumph? There is only one way to find out!

Dawn of the Soviet Ladybirds is an interactive fiction created with the Adventuron text adventure engine.

There is built-in help within the game. Enter HINT for a clue, and I'M STUCK for explicit guidance on what to do.

Best parser games since 2017 by Rovarsson
When browsing for good recent games, I'm overwhelmed by the amount of Twine and Choice games. Add to that a great number of games with five stars and only one rating, many of which are also, yes, Twine and Choice games, it gets difficult...
