Dead Girlfriend Story

An interactive adaptation of one of my favorite pieces of internet-based horror fiction, My Dead Girlfriend Keeps Messaging Me on Facebook by natesw. The main story is told through screenshots of a Facebook messenger chat with narration in between. I wanted to make it more like a book, where the reader controls how fast they go to build a better sense of tension.

Replicating Facebook chat was no easy feat; I had to learn and write a lot of Javascript and some new CSS I’d never thought to use before. It may not be a perfect recreation but in the end I think it turned out well.
