About


Hello! I’m G.C. Baccaris or Grim. I'm a writer, classicist, decaying spellbook, and developer trying to get by. If you dig my work and have funds to spare, you could give me a bit more peace of mind knowing that I might be able to cover small expenses or even save up a bit of money each month. You’ll also gain access to a variety of inane ravings, disturbing artwork, and strange tomes!






I make interactive narratives, games, artwork, traditional prose fiction, tutorials, mistakes, and the occasional poem. My work is influenced by an interest in ritual, masks, autonomy, and the uncanny, and my writing has been published in sub-Q Magazine and L'Éphémère Review, in addition to being awarded 5th place out of 82 entries in the 25th annual Interactive Fiction Competition.

I’ve published over 20 games since January 2016 and have several more in development. To get a feel for my work, I recommend checking out DEVOTIONALIA, Unmaking, Unmade, The Embrace, or Hatchling, all of which are free to play.

I enjoy making visually-diverse games and experimenting with UI in Twine. In addition to my writing and interactive fiction projects, I'm currently working on the Twine Grimoire, a series of tutorials covering CSS & HTML customization in various Twine 2 story formats. The first volume of tutorials is now available for free on itch. You do not need coding experience to use these guides. They're suitable for users of any skillset, but are geared toward writers and developers who are new to Twine, CSS, and HTML.

Patrons gain early access to these tutorials before they're expanded on and posted elsewhere! Here are some examples of UI elements I've created using the techniques that I'll be exploring in the Twine Grimoire.


If you’re about what I’m about and want to support my work, you can do so for as little as $2/month. Currently, Patreon is my only regular source of income, so I appreciate any and all support.

Becoming a patron gives you early access to exclusive content being created as I work on upcoming projects, like behind-the-scenes WIP screenshots, Twine CSS tutorials, concept art, and fiction excerpts.

As far as tutorials go, after each set of lessons has been revised with input from patrons, they'll be formatted into a PDF and will become accessible for free on itch. All of my published and upcoming free games will also remain free to play and download, but if you become a patron you'll have early access to first drafts and discussions about the development process.

If you would prefer to make a one-time donation of $3 or more, you can do so through ko-fi.

Thanks for checking out my page, and thank you for any level of support you're able to give.
