Horrorday is a text-only adventure from the same stable as The Prawn, starring the character Dennis the Dwarf, with a good spattering of humour. There was a further follow up adventure Dennis the Dwarf at the Funfear which was lost following initial pre-views until it was re-discovered in 2016


You play the role of Dennis the Dwarf, who has fallen in love with a fairy called Matilda. Unfortunately, Matilda has her heart set elsewhere and after a night with your friend 'Enry the Elf, drowning your sorrows, you wake up in a strange land which could almost be the set of a Hammer Horror Movie.
Can you find your way home safely, whilst exploring a world full of werewolves, dracula look-alikes and Princesses?
Can you find Esmerelda and help her to find true love, or will you die slowly in the clutches of the witch?
It is up to you to find out.
