Magical Makeover

S. Woodson's Magical Makeover is a short Twine text adventure about getting ready for a very fancy ball, where only the beautiful may attend... which is a bit of a problem for you, at least so you believe. With the help of a condescending magical mirror, you'll need to use the oddball assortment of cosmetics you have on hand to address each of your "problems" as the mirror points them out. Just click the dark bolded pink text to choose whichever you'd like, but beware... different combinations of items net vastly different results, and set you on unique paths once you leave home. Largely, all of the interaction in Magical Makeover takes place at the beginning, with the rest of the game unfolding as a story that follows whatever paths you triggered during your bathroom rituals. It was made as a sort of response to the "Girl Games" eating up so many portals these days... you know the ones, where you have to "fix" the ugly, dirty characters by cleaning them up for dates, school, and so forth, but here takes the basic concept and spins it into adventure. Very well written adventure at that, with wonderful bits of humour, strange creatures, and magic and even just the right amount of introspection to make for cozy reading. With seven very unique routes/endings to uncover, your night at the ball is likely to turn out far stranger than you could ever have imagined.

The writing was pretty awesome.

This was truly fantastic, I went back and replayed to get every possible ending. The title and color scheme are really misleading. This is a very smart and cleverly written work which has little to do with the overtly girly packaging.

awesome little game, very clever writing. I actually tried to look up the author to see if s/he does other writing. Unfortunately all I can find is a twitter that mentions editing a novella and no other info :c I'd definitely read a book written in this style.. and I'm pretty picky about my books

I too would love to read (and pay for!) something else by the same author. The variety of endings really makes replaying the game really entertaining.

Sorry for commenting again, but you might want to add the the 'lgbt' tag. One of the endings mentions the protagonist having a girlfriend (presumably the ex), and another ending mentions an outfit having a bodice.

(Although, as an aside, much of the story leaves off mentioning the main character's gender, so it could be anything)

I like the writing, and the trope subversion. Grammatical note for the author, though: "antenna" is singular; "antennae" is plural.
