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.

Is it cool if the fairy tale itself already has a very dark ending?

make it even MORE darker.
I just watched an episode(105) of Disenchantment that had a very dark take on the Hansel and Gretel tale. It's a good show.
What's this? I actually log onto the site to see an event before it starts?

I think I'll give this one a try.
legendary witches need fast food too
Oh, HorrorBox is gonna make a game? I always see them all over other horror games on RMN so it's gonna be interesting to see what he comes up with for this event.

Who is going straight up horror as opposed to just dark themed?

I'm pretty sure I'm going straight up horror and not just dark themed, why you asking? Interested in Darkening up some team up?

Hype! Jumping on this and I've already started writing down things. If there's someone willing to make a couple of midis for the game or take care of its sound, it would be more than appreciated.
Also, It will be a remake of Left Behind. So, the esthetics should be similar. I'm changing the story quite a lot and connecting it with a fairy tale makes it more meaningful. Also, there will be vampires, because I love them bloodsuckers rn.
Drats! What Cap said reminds me that I also still need to find someone to make a couple of tracks for the game.
Just PM me if you're interested, I'd highly appreciate it.
Hopefully I can find time to finish this over the next month as time has never been something I have a lot of.
I will most likely have to go with some incomptech music as I can't make tunes myself and I doubt anyone knows me well enough to help out in that department :P

Just curious as to what everyone's going for. I'm probably going solo.

Good luck Grindalf, make the best you can in this one month we have.

I'm looking forward to what you'll cook up. I have high hopes for everyone that's participating! (Even myself, even though I've had a bad track record of finishing projects for events as of late RIP)

I was going to do something based on the legend of Esclarmonde and the Grail, but figured it would be too obscure for anyone to recognize. Besides, Kylaila likes my Cinderella idea better.

That's funny, I'm reading a book by Graham Hancock that has a lot of mentions of Parzival and the Grail. I've not heard of Esclarmonde of Foix, but if he was a Cathar, I might have to dive into that rabbit hole.

I think I might do a game based on a Russian fairy tale. They have some imaginative tales.
Still not sure which stories to use or how to use them. I'm spoiled for choice.

Only four I know of are the lich who did this super elaborate trick with his phylactery, one of them involving Baba Yaga, trolls invading some family's house and just wrecking the place with constant parties until the daughter brings in a freaking bear, and the one where a young girl encounters three riders representing dawn and day and night.
Team This isn't where I parked my car... is open to all procrastinators that know they are in the wrong place signing up for the event because they won't finish anything. Though they might procrastinate the event by working on their main game.

Looking at you here, Lil Z.
Started doing a menu, funny mistake popped up when doing a draw_line:


Makes me want to do a spiderweb type thing but man, probably annoying to pursue.
Cool event once again
