I occasionally create interactive text adventure games under the name Bitter Karella. If you like Guttersnipe, here are a few little games about kids in peril that I authored and that you might also enjoy.
You’re eight years old. You wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. But you soon realize that not everything is as it seems in this house tonight. Where has everyone gone? Things look different in the dark. Night House is an atmospheric text adventure written in Quest 5.5 and vaguely set in the Guttersnipe universe. Play it online or download a copy to your desktop. It requires the Quest program (downloadable at UkTextadventures) to play offline.
Night House was an entrant in IFComp 2016 and placed 8th out of 58. Special thanks to play testers The Pixie, Egghead Cheesybird, Steph Cherrywell, Norman Rafferty, Rich Finn, Holden Crick, and Khatoblepas! BE AWARE!

Having trouble? You can also read a walk-through.
The incident began in 1705 at Blackrock Township in the Province of Massachusetts Bay in the house of the Rev. Steadfast Hopkins.
After evenmeal, the reverend’s daughter fell into a violent fit.
When Ezola Midnight is accused of causing the fits with witchcraft, her responses will determine her fate. Will she be hanged as a witch? Or will she go free?
This is a Twine game that placed 8th place out of 16 in ECTOCOMP 2016. Play it online!
A mysterious stranger entices famed street urchin Lil’ Ragamuffin to visit a local carnival with a promise of unlimited free corn dogs, but you soon realize that there’s something sinister happening at this circus: For one thing, you can’t leave! For another, there sure are a lot of UNSETTLING clowns around here. Guttersnipe: Carnival of Regrets is a short comedy puzzler with a somewhat twisted sense of grotesque humor (Warning for some raunchy humor and mild Lovecraftian body horror elements, but nothing worse than you’d see in, say, an episode of Flapjack), so give it a looksy if that’s up your alley!
(Also, just for fun, the game has a built-in hint system! If you get stuck, you can ask your sewer rat companion about various topics and he might even have some helpful responses to set you on the right track!)
