Winter Wonderland

by Laura Knauth

You are a young girl named Gretchen Bales. Gretchen lives in a small mountain village with her mother, father, and younger brother Sander Bales. The game begins in Gretchen’s family’s house on the evening before the winter solstice. Sander has fallen ill, and Gretchen very much wants to buy a present for him, more specifically a new pair of shoes which she has seen in the village toy shop. On her way home after obtaining these shoes, Gretchen falls unconscious as she is buffeted by an incoming blizzard. She awakes in a whimsical winter-themed land. The primary goal of the game is to return home with the new shoes.
