The indie game playground of itch.io really does throw up some interesting horror concepts, and the skewing of something relatively normal tends to be the best kind of headfuck method on the site.
Take this horror parody of The Simpsons by Darien Gore (aka Fleebs) called ‘Eggs For Bart’. First released on itch.io last year, the game tasks Homer with getting Fruit of the Chicken for Bart in the poorly-lit Simpsons homestead. The thing is, there’s something a bit more sinister afoot.
Chapter One tasks you with getting two dozens eggs, then leaving the house to give them to Bart. Simple enough, but the first catch is that you can only carry a half dozen at a time. So you’ll have to make four trips, with the task getting progressively harder as the night goes on. That’s largely because Marge, Lisa, and Maggie want the eggs too, and they aren’t exactly themselves.
The story goes to some strange places, and the more-recently released second chapter sees you continue the story as Ned Flanders, investigating the occurrences at the home of The Simpsons.
The whole game stems from a joke during a Game Grumps video.
You can download both chapters from itch.io for free right now.
