Groke game by IsisMasshiro Groke game by IsisMasshiro
There was some time a small Finnish, fan made downloadable game, named "Mörköpeli". It is not there anymore, but some Finnish youtubers made fun playing videos about it. I got so many laughs while watching them.

Moomins are very popular thing in Finland and my own childhood favourite character happened to be this brown, big eared Nipsu (Sniff). My current fave is Mörkö (Groke) herself. Holy hell she traumatised so many kids who happened to see her in the Moomins animation series.

I remember a line from this article about cartoons for kids that are clearly not for kids, I think it was on cracked, the part about the Moomins was hilarious.
"Feller what are you doing with that gun that ain't gonna do nothing! I know it's for us!"

Well, I was around 4-5 I guess, when my mum was reading Moomins to me and of course showed me pictures in the book, and they are pretty scary. I still read those books :D

Ha ha ha! Yeah :D I didn't change it in years. Don't know how other five people for whom I made it back then :D

Well, the game mostly is that you're in a forest and your trying to find a garnet or something, and the groke is chasing you. I don't really know what kind of category I would put this in to

I have no idea what a groke is...could you explain?
You can get complex with me I enjoy learning about mythological and supernatural characters, down to the complex parts. 
(PS that's sorta like suspense horror. It keeps you on the tips of your toes because someone is stalking you)

The Groke (Swedish name is Morran and Finnish name is Mörkö) is a fictional characterfrom the Moomin stories by ToveJansson. She appears as a ghost-like, hill-shaped bodywith two cold staring eyes and a wide row of white shinyteeth. And she can freeze everything that comes in her way, so she mostly kill things. You can find morefactson wikipedia. Also,I recomend watching the Moomins tv showfrom 1990,it's a Japanese-Europeananimated tv show. That's when I saw her first, and I was 4 years old so I got a lot of nightmares of it.

With her spooky debut, Groke indeed left some traumas to me - including some fear of darkness because of her - when I was younger/Jo ensiesiintymisellään Mörkö totta tosiaan jätti traumoja minuun - mukaan lukien hieman pimeän pelkoa hänen takiaan - kun olin nuorempi.

Se on ymmärrettävää sillä mörkö on traumatisoinut satoja ipanoita ensiesiintymisellään.

Oh man I have to look up vids of this game xD It's also really funny to see the original Finnish; and English names of the characters that I had known my whole childhood only in Polish xD Sniff was called Ryjek and Groke was called Buka. Go figure, doesn't really match the English meanings, I have no idea abut Finnish though xP
Groke did indeed scare the heck out of me in the animated series! I would always wind the tape forward when the episode about Moomin's Dad's young years story played, since it included some really scary moments with Groke! When I read the book later on I was pretty surprised that it actually talked like a normal person and just wanted her stuff back,a nd then went on her merry icy way.
Also, coming back from a week-long trip and seeing a drawing from you in my notifications made me so happy! Keep rollin' on, you're awesome! :D

I remember always thinking the Moomin cartoon was Finnish and got so surprised to learn that while the stories ARE Finnish, the cartoon was made in Japan! O.O Then again, once you know it it makes sense as it certainly has an anime feel to it!  

Moomin was popular here in Norway too and I remember having at least three nightmares of the Groke (Hufsa). :P

And yes, cartoon sure has some of the anime vibe on it. Especially those later ones.

Itse pelkäsin enemmän hattivatteja ja Taikuria kuin Mörköä. XD Taikuri oli hemmetin pelottava, vaikka olikin lopuksi ihan mukava tyyppi...

Toisaalta, kun on 7-vuotiaana alkanut katsomaan "Pelkäätkö pimeää?", niin Mörön ei edes pitäisi tehota. Ghastly Grinnerin bussikuskin jälkeen lastenohjelmat olivat helppoa kuin heinänteko... Tämä hemmo siis.

Sen voin ymmärtää, Taikuri ainakin on aika creepy jätkä jo sen äänenkin takia. Hattivatit taas voivat ihan oikeasti olla vaarallisia niiden sähköiskujensa kanssa.

Oi, muistan tuon sarjan. Minäkin pelkäsin sitä enemmän kuin mörköä. XD

I screamed when I saw the thumbnail. And I screamed with fear. The Groke (or Morran as she is called in swedish) Is one of my childhood traumas. I still can't stand to see her! I was rewatching the series not so long ago and the episode that she is introduced came up. "I will watch it! I'm going to do it!" And as soon as she was getting on screen, I looked down. I couldn't do it. All of my friends knows about this! So they have prankt me so many times by using her. My sister bought a groke plush when we was sharing a flat. And that fucking plush was everywhere. In my closet, under my bed, and once in my bag. That I opened. In public. And scared so many by my scream. There is even a vid up on youtube of a stream I was on where a friend drew her without my knowing and then put the drawing infront of me. Screams and tears.

Whoa, everyone is making fun of your Groke-fobia I see. That sucks.
And I bet that sucks for the Groke too, because she's like that "ugly girl" of school which everyone is running from and being used as a scare of others.

Oh well. At least in the last moomin books she got an actual friend from Moomintroll himself.

Just toissa päivänä sain tietää että tämmöinen peli on olemassa kun katselin suomalaisia youtubettajia. Hyi helvetti kun traumat nousi pintaa mutta hauskaa oli katsoa kuinka pelaajilla tuli housuille pelatessaan! Ihan parasta! :D
