This is my Shortventure 2018 contest entry. The theme was supposed to be about 'fear' but I screwed up and made it about cuisine and music. Sorry about that.

I never expected a song about a woman killing a baby to be a true banger.

Under the Stairs is a fangame not quite like any other. It borders on experimental with the things you may experience and for the Shortventure 2018, it nailed the theme of 'Fear' above all other submissions. I opted to not put my judge review for this, as I feel the less information you have going into it the better. Do know however that it's an eerie adventure telling the tale of the whimsical hijinks of a wacky family and their surroundings.

Sort of what you'd expect from Wookie, although don't expect a typical platforming adventure here. No doubt this game will be quite divisive due to the somewhat slow and different nature of the game, but I was a fan.

Pretty neat and provocative story mixed with the item management of adventure/point and click games. Kinda reminds me of Phantasmagoria in terms of its themes and item based exploration. Its good.

Honestly one of the better SVC entries. This game is styled like a fetch and gather adventure game, like King's Quest. I have never really played a WetWookie game, but the style was easily shown and executed well. Can't wait to see more!

A fangame that stands alone completely unlike any other in its presentation and gameplay. The emphasis on platforming is gone and instead you have a game that plays like the old point-and-click Sierra style adventure games of old. It is still a fangame in terms of there being some light platforming and the Kid is there, but in every other respect it's a completely different experience from other games.

A strong emphasis on story telling and puzzle solving makes the player traverse a few areas looking for items and interactions with those items to find solutions to progress the story. A horror themed games with some funny interactions snuck in there, the production is very different in a good way.

The only drawback was that due to the style of the game, the world is small which means you will be going back and forth through the same rooms quite often. One or two of these rooms in particular are mildly annoying in that one requires you to use the same item every single time you pass through it, and the other is cycle based which can lead to some waiting.

These are minor gripes and shouldn't detract fangame players of any skill level from trying this one because it is a very different experience and a memorable one at the same time.
