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.

To sign up for this do I have to use that group thingy even though it's just me? I'm not sure what's preferred here.
I probably don't have time or energy for this but. I want to try anyway! Dark fairy-tales are my shit man, I love them even though some say it's an overdone idea. This event just enables me. Nobody can stop me from this concept now!
Except for time. That might stop me. But it might not. I'll give it a shot.
yeah tons of people are entering solo, it's mainly there so you can submit your entry seperate from a gamepage
Wooooot!!! This looks like a very fun event!!! A dark fairy tale theme is my mood right now xD :D ^_^ Berry and I will be joining for this event!! :) xDD

So excited to see all the games and the streams (if there will be any xD)!
There will be stream, confirmed.
I’m working on a version of a twisted Peter Pan if anyone is interested in joining me :)

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.

I am good with mapping Muffle

It's never too late! Welcome to the event Raven.
Any team plan on finishing that I can jump on and ride the coat tails?... lol

I won't do anything for a Klondike bar but I'll do some shady things for makerscore.

There will be stream, confirmed.


Niceee!!! ^_^ :) No matter how dark this event is, there shall always be a happy ending! XDD :D
If anyone's curious about mine.

The first one.

Only things don't go well.

I would have more makerscore If I did things.

I'm probably going to be doing one about Masha and the Bear.
To give it a darker twist, I'll be upping the stake dramatically. Hopefully the gameplay ideas I have are good enough =X
Pfft, I'm actually done I think, unless I want to add more stuff. I made it an adventure RPG, so I didn't have to waste hours on end balancing stupid ATB stuff (instead I have to figure out if local event battles are balanced).

I can't upload until my page is approved though.
I think...I just MIGHT be able to make a game for this. I am getting through quite a few maps pretty rapidly, so we'll see what happens.
Argh I know what I want to do but not how to do it! I wanna make a game based on stories of Baba Yaga but I have no idea what to actually do?? Anyone wanna help? I can make custom art for the maps, characters, whatever, I just need to know the direction to go with it. If someone is willing to help me brainstorm and maybe do coding things? (I'm bad with programming, it takes me forever to figure things out rip) believe me I'm an antisocial loser so asking for help from people I don't know is unheard of. so uh, yeah? if anyone wants to help a painfully inept game maker, i'm here all month *peace sign emoji*
my team always free to join for any buddy and i think ppl can have multiple entries anyway so why not.

Lucky you! My strong suit is brainstorming and story development. I'm pretty good with events but if you mean scripts when you say coding I can't help you there. I'd be willing to help you out, just keep in mind I'm also doing a project. I'll help you when I'm taking a break on mine.

If you want to do everything visually, while your teammate only brainstorms and does the coding (if by that you mean "Eventing"), then I am down to help out. I am working on a small project of my own, based on Russian folk tale (currently without Baba Yaga). I just kind of burned out on working on the same thing for such long stretches so I like to have a side project to work on to keep me motivated to keep working with the engine. If you are using a semi-custom sprite for Baba, could I also use it in my game for a cameo?

Hey @MireMira & @Muffle Let's make it a 3-Entity team! (And we'll avoid that pesky Human Chauvanism, eh?)
