In this game, the player is a frequent user of the titular website. The character in the game is an "alternate anime girl" reflection of you. Your "objective" is to hurt this character by clicking a button with text that reads "CLICK TO EVISCERATE".
As the game goes on, the visuals become more surreal and the writing turn toward self-deprecation. The character asks you why you're visiting this website when the gameplay itself is this tedious. Are you gaining any catharsis from doing this? Or are you just doing it out of routine?
Self-harm and self-destructive tendencies in general are pretty difficult to discuss. For example, there are decent IF titles like Hana Feels, which are meant to be more didactic and empathetic. However, they're usually from a point-of-view that isn't from someone feeling suicidal. You are usually trying to help them and persuade them by telling them you're there for them. Something like EVISCERATETHISGIRL.COM is rarer to see and it's certainly more visceral and disturbing. You are roleplaying as someone who loathe themselves so much you are checking this website out.
In my experience playing this game, I feel like I was being interrogated about my own feelings. It made me peer into myself, which is quite impressive for a game purporting to be less than 500 words. This game is not for the faint of heart, but anyone interested in why people (including themselves) find themselves entering phases where they want to hurt themselves may find this title interesting.
This game was written for the Neo Twiny Jam in 500 words or less.
However, it contains a great deal of graphics and sound, making it a longer experience than its word count might as first suggest.
It's exactly what it states; you play as a character who keeps visiting a website called evisceratethisgirl.com where you make an avatar of yourself and then stab it.
The idea is to communicate self-hatred, loathing and despair. The graphics continually get more glitchy and dark.
For me, the narrative emotion arc was a bit off. It starts off grotesquely and with distorted visuals right off the bat. There's not much chance to identify with the protagonist because they're immediately displayed as an unusually messed up person. So when things progress, it doesn't feel like it's happening to me. Similarly, the graphics start out shocking and weird, so there's not much room for it to grow. But this is subjective and another person might have the opposite reaction.
Unable to sleep, you visit this strange website, one you’ve been visiting quite often lately. For what the purpose of this website does, the URL is the giveaway (don’t worry the girl is not real).
It is gruesome, it is strange, it is trippy. Also reminded me of Flash games (RIP Flash…)
Kuddos on the very killer UI and visuals!

Anglophone Atlantis has been an independent nation since an April day in 1822, when a well-aimed shot from their depluralizing cannon reduced the British colonizing fleet to one ship. Since then, Atlantis has been the world's greatest...
