Light-hearted Ectocomp entry. A ghost has suddenly appeared in your kitchen demanding a pumpkin pie. You'd better get to work!
Very user-friendly (bolded room exits, command syntax hints). Compact location, fun writing. Some neat puzzles.
Lots of exploring the small little house area to find ingredients, and a few small puzzles beyond that as you follow the recipe for the pie.
Multiple endings depending on how the pie turns out; the ghost will rate you on your baking skills. Very nice looking interface. Think I ended up with a score in the 70s?
Visually, this game is a treat. It does for a parser game what has been increasingly common for high-end Twine games over the last few years: custom fonts, background images, special styling (here marginal notes). I love it, and, having tried for a long time to style my Quixe games, I know how hard it can be.
Gameplay-wise, this is polished for an Ectocomp game. You have a ghost that randomly curses things, and a big recipe sheet that tells you how to cook things.
I didn't do too hot, getting 42 on my first attempt and then (undoing for more chances but messing up) getting a 0.

A list I created for myself so I can play all of these games. Sorted by rank and year. English entries. I'll add descriptions and my own ratings (out of 5 stars) to the entries in this list as I go through them.
