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.

No idea if I'll finish the way I want, but I have a means to wrap it up rather quickly. There's some setup in the story that will fall flat though :V

Helping out at a convention booth on the weekend is pretty damn exhausting, but good thing Oct has 31 days I guess.

I completely agree.
I submitted my game page for pending, so hopefully I can finish and just plop it on the page as soon as it's complete.

Our gamepage is now up in public, guys! ^_^ :) Game completed! xD :)Also submitted already in the event page!! :D

This was such an amazing event and working with BerryRMN was really fun and exciting! :) We really enjoyed the creation of this game and he was such an amazing and talented friend/teammate to work with! :D Hope you all enjoy the game as we did making it! ^_^ :D

I'm also very excited to see how everyone else's submissions play soon! ^_^
I'm glad to see some people already wrapping up their stuff. I managed to drive my team into the ditch (big surprise) and I've been so busy with other stuff that I have no idea what my team came up with the half month+ that I wasn't taking part of the development.
My gamepage is uuup~~ (for who's interested)
https://rpgmaker.net/games/10828/
Still no download avaible though...
https://rpgmaker.net/games/10820/

And only 1 game-breaking bug found and fixed! >.> Current 1.01 has 2 super minor bugs, but not gonna upload yet another version until more bugs reported and fixed or more content added....Bears!

OK, I submitted my game. I preemptively apologize. It probably doesn't work, too.
Just Right is awesome. Right about the time where the bear breathes fire, I'm like "this should win best game."

My game is up, done and submitted!
Well, here's hoping there's no bugs/crash and hope you guys will enjoy it...

Aww, thanks!

That was one of the scenes I had planned all along, but only added at the very last minute. I almost didn't include that part at all because of time constraints :P
I'm really really bummed I couldn't finish this... But being hit with something huge in personal life really screwed me over...

*pats muffles* You can still finish your game if you enjoyed working on it later. I think a few others are gonna do that. Hope things get better for you Muffs.
Thanks Delsin. I definitely will finish it, I'm just bummed cuz I know I would have been able to finish it by now had it not been for what happened.
Um... my game is up. (only a demo though)
If anyone interested.

*Finishes bad eding* Welp, I deserved that, I was crappy to everyone.

*Works on good ending* Oh, there's the woman to give me cosmetics... WTF?!?

(Oh, heads up. "The Queen sent a search party to retrieve him but they were not fast enough..." on the prince ending x2)

I think we have a winner. This is the weirdest (and most twisted) game ever. I'm gonna try to get the neutral ending (not bad enough for the king to kill, but not good enough to become a bear either).

Agh, it doesn't work. You can't piss Chiara enough so she won't come and prevent the marriage of doom. If you redo it later, it should have her getting turned into meat pie as an ending #4, and ending #3 should be having Chiara not help (if you got tossed out of her shop). And a ending #5 where she swallows the wood. The only thing I didn't do was shout at the mom, and it seemed like nothing changed at the points I expected to get a bad end. So no to a neutral ending so far anyway, but the others are good. I did notice one change though. If you tick off the noblewoman, it appears she is the poisoner.
Since I work basically all tomorrow, I had to finish up tonight. We're live!!!

And when I finally have a day off, I wanna try to play everyone else's entries as soon as I can.
Bleh, I'm going to try to fix everything as soon as I can,
hopefully I can get done in time, I just have to work every moment possible.
I just need to fix some bugs and possible glitches.
Oh no! I just realized! Tomm. is my bday already (Nov. 1) and my family decided we go out of town until sunday x(( So I cannot join the streams for the cool event games here huhuhu x( :(

Buuuut!! I'll watch the recorded streams as soon as I get back! ^_^ XDD :D Oh dear! Nice submission everyone! And best wishes also to everyone who are currently working on their projects for this event. :)

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.
