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.

just relax.
*Has whipped up a title screen*
my game is going to be awesome or spectacularly fail to exist (in time for the contest).

there is no middle ground.

Yeah, guess I'm officially doing this at this point. My project is titled Wine & Roses and may or may not include three female exorcists, an aristocratic skeleton lord, and anachronistic technology (re: guns). Also, a dark industrial soundtrack.

Oh, and plenty of bastardized and pretentious French/Latin/German phrases. Can't do neo-gothic without that.

This is brilliant.

God, I have everything but a title. I have NO IDEA what I'm gonna call this thing.. but when I do, gamepage shall be made!
Caz

But it takes place mainly outside. And there are no ghosts.

Yes, maybe I should call it that!
How about "Outside and ghostless" or "Ghosties come back" or "Where's Ghosty" or "What's with this game?" or "Game 42: I have no reason for this title"

You could name it after your character.

Come to think of it, I do have little achievable 'coin' things called "Ghosties".. Maybe something like "Where's Ghosty?" or "Ghosty Hunt" will have to do for now. XD

Haha, that's crazy good! Yes! It is decided: that shall be the name!
Basics of gameplay, "plot," and characters have been decided (in that order, shockidy shock shock), so I guess it's time I actually signed up. Cafes are great places for brainstorming sessions.

Just a reminder from the rules listed above: games must be complete to qualify!

Also, if anyone wants to contribute a ghost house level to Mario's Mansion II, just give me a holler. Just note that we're keeping it small and compact this time around.
I am already thinking up the plot of my game!

The Princess is captured by Big Boo on Halloween. Go fuck him up.
Best idea ever.

But seriously though, I don't have an idea for a story yet, but I will end up doing what most people do and end up making a Mario game with eaither Mario and Luigi, or just Luigi.
I would really like this though. I will start soon! And I think if I have enough time...which I won't, I will make a shitty 2K3 game to back it up. XD
This should be interesting. Every halloween I say i'm going to make a halloween themed game and never do, so this shall be a fun experience to try and make a game for this. :)
