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.

Sorry you didn't finish in time Muffle and hope things get better. Thanks for playing the part of Tinker Bell though. You were a big help :D

Hehe, actually there was gonna be a wood swallowing ending and a few more, but ran out of time. Prolly gonna add more endings sometime later tho. It was a lot of fun to work on this game.

Yay!!! I'll subscribe then. I wanna try out all the bad endings. Btw, what fairy tale was that supposed to be?

Hey Doggie, A Night Near The Woods keeps giving me a bad .rar file. It won't unpack. Make sure you double check it before the deadline.



Hey guys... I really hoped until now that i could have posted something, anything actually! Even a tiny little demo, but... Sadly i can't. I thought that college wouldn't be so full of things to do in the FIRST two weeks already! But sadly i was wrong... I've got nothing to present, apart from graphics and a little intro before the actual game should have started. It's sooooo frustrating! This event is my favorite so far, and i can't post anything for it!!!! T^T
I will definitely work on my game nevertheless, although i am not sure if i would get the time to do it soon... So sad... *don't mind me, i am just crying in a little corner*
Anyways, well done to everyone who posted, or will post their games! You're the best! >u<
I won't make it to the deadline - good luck participants and congratulations who submitted an entry.

:C oh noes. I tried downloading it and unpack, it doesn't seem to happen on my end. Anyway, I'll try to reupload one as soon as possible. Thanks for notifying me.

Edit: Re-uploaded(Re-deployed, re-zipped to .rar). Sorry for the inconvenience you had to go through.

Are you sure? I still have a rar file that I am unable to load.

My advice? Test before upload, there's some sort of issue. If rar isn't working, try turning it into an exe via InstallCreator. I haven't had much problem with my games being corrupt, as I always use InstallCreator.

Hurry hurry, time's running out.
Finishing up some minor edits on my damn demo, and then I will submit. So much RL BS came up, I haven't even done any work on my projects for 2 weeks. Ugh. Good luck errybuddy.
i signed up late because i saw it was still going. I don't really care if i make it in time, i just thought itd be fun to try making something and release it anyways. If i was shooting for before the deadline, it would be a adventure game made of scribbles. :p

haha thanks, good to know.

Already fixed a bug involving some keys and doors. But even with them intact there's still ways around them (due to the mansion's loopy layout). Uploaded yet another build called ver2 fyi to like the 2 people who dled the first version.

edit: Ver3 uploaded :V
Shit. I lost track of time dealing with Life and now I didn't even finish my game page...(let alone even have the game compressed.)
And time!
I'll add an hour for last minute uploads but otherwise, congrats to all who got their game in!
