Gretel and Hansel

Gretel and Hansel is a short point-and-click adventure game in which you take on the role of Gretel on her quick search for stones she may use to mark a path through the forest, so that she will not be stranded once her parents lose her there.

Makopudding's game takes place in a grim watercolour world and also features a neat example of player goals and player-character goals being drastically at odds: the player is actually rewarded for finding all of the different ways one can make the protagonist die a horrible, violent death!

The game's author also promises that further episodes in the series are forthcoming and shall - of course - feature Gretel and Hansel in the forest and at the famous witch's house.

Warning: this game does contain bloody violence.
