1st Place: Will You Ever Return? by jackspinoza
2nd Place: Wine & Roses by Craze
3rd Place: Dead Moon Night by Fomar0153 and Indra

Judges' comments forthcoming.



First and foremost, thanks to Archeia_Nessiah for the wonderful event page CSS!

October's already here! It sure did sneak up on us like a creepy crawly black widow spider, fangs poised for a nasty, venomous bite! Like all arachnaphobes, we sprang to our feet, panicked, and tripped over the night stand decided that we're overdue for another month-long game development contest!

The Theme? Anything related to Halloween! Horror, trick-or-treating, zombie attacks, ghosts...it's your call!

This is a very broad theme: as long as the game is in the spirit of Halloween, you'll be fine. Feel free to ask if you don't think your game applies to the theme. You may use any game development engine. Additional rules are listed below.

The deadline is 12pm UTC on Halloween4pm UTC on November 3rd. A panel of judges will play each game and rank the top three entries. Users may vote for their favorite game once the contest is over; voting will be handled through this page. Results will be announced via podcast. It's the All Hallows' Event...or, I guess you could say, the Nightmare Before Halloween!


Step 1: Sign up for the contest in the "Registration" section below this event description. You can enter this event solo or as a team. Additionally, you may submit as many games or join as many teams as you'd like.
Step 2: Create your game page. Normal submission rules apply.
Step 3: Post your download to the game page once it's approved.
Step 4: Submit your game download to the contest by using the commands on the upper-right corner of this page.



Winner: Patron Spirit of Halloween Achievement (worth 100 makerscore), an LP from one of the judges, a review from one of the judges, and a free copy of RPG Maker VX Ace.
2nd place: Ragdoll Love Interest Achievement (worth 75 makerscore), an LP from one of the judges, and a review from one of the judges.
3rd place: Duckbilled Evil Scientist Achievement (worth 60 makerscore) and a review from one of the judges.
Voters' choice: Two-Faced Mayor Achievement (worth 100 makerscore).
Participation (including judges): Sadistic Sack's Shadow Achievement (worth 50 makerscore).

(Feel free to nag the judges until you get your review.)

I'm sorta glad I don't have to go against Grave Prosperity. That game looks all kinds of awesome, and quite in-theme with this event.

Anyway, I should play some of this stuff!
It helps to have someone else play test your game. As I just relearned.

*goes off to fix game-threatening bug and write more documentation...

So true. Though I tend to find QAing my game to death is one of the funnest aspects of creating a video game.
I found that I knew what must be done in my game. So I was very poor at testing what happens when you do something wrong/not necessary.
just finished my testing and now i am submitting :)
When the game is approved :o

Mine's done, just uploading. >.<;

I have not been able to stop playing Wine and Roses since Craze uploaded it.

It is fabulous and you should all play it.

I'm looking forward to trying out some of the games, now that I've slept. Should be a good Saturday. =)

I'm stumped. The list of downloads and voting should appear in place of the signups because the event has ended. Kentona will have to figure this out, as I'm going to work.

^ This. Lol, so many bugs are being found in my game that completely eluded me~ xD
Where can I get RPGVXAce RTP? Is it possible to play the games without it? :/ Have I done something wrong along the way?
Awesome possums!! Thanks Craze. I saw this but thought it was something else. Thank goodness the "trouble-and-strife" is out tonight! Can't wait to play.

*looks up something on a hunch* AHA! I thought it was Cockney slang! SO your other half's out eh?
Unfortunately I was unable to make it in time for the deadline. However, I'll still finish it up and submit soon anyways, even if not for the contest. :/

I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.

I didn't do anything, but it looks like it is working? I didn't try to vote yet, but I can go to the upper right, click Vote, then go down and select an entry then click the Vote button below...
There're too many entries to decide who to vote for! DX Guess I'll just pick randomly between the ones I like most. :p

Isn't it really up to the three judges who wins. or is it more democratic than I expected?

There's a "Voter's choice" award unrelated to the judges.

Also, I obviously didn't finish in time, but good luck to all those who did.
