Video Game / Final Girl

Go To
An Interactive Fiction horror game developed for the Story Nexus website, and first released on September 29th, 2013. Unfortunately, Story Nexus' bugs eventually rendered it unplayable, and while a sequel/remake was promised, it is yet to materialise as of the time of writing.

As you can guess from the title, the game is styled after a typical Slasher Movie, playing with both the title trope and many other conventions.

Unrelated to the 2015 film and 2019 manga of the same name.

Tropes mentioned:

  • Black Dude Dies First: Depending on your interpretation, it is either played straight, or subverted, if Dewayne is the stalker.
  • Casting Gag: Alexander Ludwig also starred in the movie The Final Girls, where he played one of the heroes.
  • Chainsaw Good: Cruelly played with: you can pick up a chainsaw...but it runs out of gas immediately after you start it.
  • Improvised Weapon: A Tiffany lamp can be used to defend yourself.
  • Nail 'Em: The killer deals with his targets by using a staple gun.
  • Schmuck Bait: A bubble bath is already drawn. The game remarks "Obviously this is a trap laid for you. But a strong urge to just give up, lay back in the warm water, and scrub all the muck from your skin and out of your hair is almost truly overwhelming." Usually, taking a bath kills you, but taking a bath with a knife equipped wins the game.
