Description

Halloween has come again and this time we let you guys pick the theme.

Fairy Tales are often stories told to give children a moralistic lesson. In and of themselves they can be pretty scary, but they tend to end happily or are resolved in a way that good triumphs in some way.

For this event you are being tasked with taking some of those Fairy Tales that you grew up with and giving them dark twists. From Little Red Riding Hood to Sleeping Beauty to Jack and the Beanstalk, any Fairy Tale is pickable. You can even smush a few together if you like!



- Games must be new - not an old game that you're finishing off - and should have been started after the event starting date. They must abide by site rules and be at least 10 minutes long.
- Submit a gamepage before the end of the event. It must abide by site rules and standards. Upload your game to your gamepage then submit via this event page.
- Team-ups are available.
- You may have more than one entry (in case you want to team up for one game with someone and make your own as well).
- You may pick any Fairy Tale you like, from anywhere in the world - it just has to be recognisable as that story when presented in the game.*
- Start Date: 1st of October
- End date: Midnight of 31st October - SITE TIME! (Remember to change your hourly offset in Settings so you have the right time show up on the page!)



There are three badges up for grabs.
- The Shattered Slipper: 50 MS for a completed game.
- The Bloody Apple: 10 MS for a demo.
- The Bone-filled Oven: 50 MS for being picked by our judge, LockeZ, as the best of the bunch. (Only complete games will be judged!)

"- You may pick any Fairy Tale you like, from anywhere in the world - it just has to be recognisable as that story when presented in the game."
That is, having a story based on little red riding hood and it being about a girl called Ridley who goes to school and kills all her friends... well, it might have inspired something of the plot (maybe) but it's not recognisable as such. But a girl who gets convicted of killing her grandmother and runs to hide in the woods where she meets a down-and-out lawyer called Wolfe who tries to help her but finds out that she has a second personality called Cutter who likes to, well, axe questions... that is recognisable as being based in said Fairy Tale.

So yeah. A thing Woot.
Aren't most fairy tales pretty dark and twisty to begin with.
Twine! Piano, wanna team up? Like, even if it's feedbacking train.

(i literally had to check if you were already signed up, AND yer open for team ups LOL)
I might try. AKA I'll register and then forget about it.

Do folktales count? They're essentially the same thing.

(I should probably stop leaving my old account signed in, huh...)
Anybody want me on their team? PM please as I won't be monitoring this page all the time. I doubt I would be able to finish a game myself but I can help with just about anything.

All teamed up.
Don't know yet if I'll sign up but Liberty, I read about your issue about copyrighted music on discord. Maybe it would he a good idea to add "no copyrighted music" as a rule for events for which the games are likely to end up in a stream.

We could just ban Lennon since multiple accounts are not allowed anyway?

I mean, thats the plan anyways- The only reason I'm signing into it now is cause I have to transfer a gamepage to my actual account. Once that's done, I'll prob just dm Liberty about shutting it off.
Event joined. Time to mak spooky gam and defeat Frogge!!!

Spooky times ahead...







Snatches Link_2112 to be his little worker elf for this event.
Anyone wanna team up with my Little Red Riding Hood x The Boy Who Cried Wolf game, I could really use someone who's great at mapping.
If you want to use something a bit off the beaten path check out http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/folktexts.html . It has a ton of uncommon tales translated into english. Caution tho, they are not Disney-fied and can be very dark/dirty.
I'm so excited for this, I can't wait
to see what everyone does!
I forgot to mention that if anyone is interested in teaming up, I'm all ears.
Folk tales are fine to count too. Remember, they just need to be recognisable as the inspiration for your game~
I'm open for collaborating in some role (if I'm taking equal ownership would want to be working in Unity although I do have rpg toolkits). Otherwise can do janky stuff like sound or writing

i'll take ppl but be prepared for severe limitations

to judges: if you play my game you will think about it twice playing it again!!!
