wow you pagesniped your own double-post. impressive!
No need to drill it thrice, big shot.
Oh what the heck XD. That shouldn't have happened. :/
Post and ye shall receive, game page and downloads are up!

(Thanks to whoever jumped into that game queue to save me!)
You can do it, remaining people! Go go go!
I'm going to finish with just enough time to upload and the internet is going to die. I can see it now. Three hours and closely watching.

huff huff huff huff

The 524 is for 524 Stone Crabs
You can do it, remaining people! Go go go!

Nope. There is still way too much I need to do with my project that could have been accomplish had I budgeted my time a bit better, so at this point it's going to be a belated entry.

I can show you some screenshots of the only level that's fully completed, though:

Remember, people who review or submit Let's Play media for games created the All Hallows Event II are eligible for an entry in a draw for a copy of Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition or Final Fantasy VII. I have two copies of each to give away! I also just noticed that Torchlight II is on sale, so I just bought a copy of THAT to give away as well! Details to follow tomorrow!

Good luck everyone!
That looks so cool! ;(

Edit: Oh really? I guess I'll try playing some games. Do I have to talk for a Let's Play?
Wow... there's a flop right there for my submission. I just made the char spawn in some random room... I'll fix that up!

Edit: Oh really? I guess I'll try playing some games. Do I have to talk for a Let's Play?

Of course, otherwise it's no Let's play.
I was unfortunately unable to complete the game within the time limit.

I got a lot done, though; I'll try for a later release, on my own time...
I did it!!! I finally finished the interactive game that I've been working (3 days straight and one semi-all-nighter till 3:00 am) to finish!!

I tried to make it so that you need to investigate objects in order to find clues / items (like being all investigative and stuff). I'll be around to help out if anyone does want to try it out and happens to get stuck =P till then, I'll be relaxing and playing others' games..

Edit: the old download was a fail... it exposed some areas of the game. sorry for that! here is the updated link:

Here's the link to our gamepage

I've never been so relieved of stress in my entire life before! =]
Hahahaha. Little over an hour to go, and that's all we get for testing and balancing. This is going to be a mess. I definitely want to upload something for the deadline, but I'll be fixing it up for an actual release over the next few days.
Ok then. Don't forget, you can just upload the file to the contest page. You don't have to have a profile, although it helps for after it.
