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!)

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.

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.


ahahah : D

I am prolly going with sparrow inn (Japanese!) in some form, for now I am in post-crunch-time recovery though. I even got tomorrow off of work. (my body knows I need it, thank you health-keeping senses)
I keep signing up for these events and then remembering that 1 month is NOT enough time for me to do anything meaningful...

Can I be removed as a contestant on my own team?
Also, can I join someone on a team? I won't be able to finish on my own.

Wow that sure is one stacked fuckin' team ya got there "team better than indrah & fomar". Those 25 fuckin' people on your bench sure are collectively better than me (at gam mak), assuming we're summing and not averaging.

Anyway, y'all have fun with this competition. If anyone needs like, ≤2 Hours of work on their game, feel free to PM me to "join" your team, I'd love to be on a team. Anything beyond that, y'all have a good time now. I will be normalizing all systems in the meat sweater I am forced to wear, aka a human body.

Yes, I know I used y'all twice in one paragraph. I'm standing by it.
I was not asked to be part of "team better than indrah & fomar" and I am not one for that type of banter. Is this a thing?

Ask me first, next time.
It's just ESBY playing a joke that he always plays. On previous events he has just added random people to his team list just to mess with people. He even has 1 or 2 banned accounts on that list of team members.

*shrugs* sounds like small fry stuff tho. I'd still rather be kept out of it. Thanks for the note.
i think it's cashmere cat who's adding all the extras, don't blame me
That calls for disqualification of the whole team and no events for 6 months. Yes, even the innocent ones.
im sure they'll be happy with the notices gained.

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.


Eyy thank you Ozzy! I want to try and get more into rmn and make a little small side project to keep me motivated through October.
and to work on my main game

That being said, I can't wait to see what your game has to offer as well!

You know what...?



I'm gonna fix ESBY.
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

I actually don't think this is possible on the site, but feel free to invite people to join your team.
So. chemicals turning frogs gay.. or not. *shrugs* Oh well.

Better apply an emergency e anti-esby patch to the source code. These esby's are getting out of hand. Like Star Trek Tribbles.

I have no idea if this will lead to an actual game, but, this ditty was very much spawned by this event.

Welp. I don't have time for this, but I might as well join. Expect either nothing done, or it to be the worst thing possible.
