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 gonna spend the month working on Console Hunt 2. It took me a week to make the first one so this one should have more meat on it! That'll be my All Hallow's project!

Evidently, I did not learn anything from my experience with Weird Dreams, and my failed attempt to make a projectile that does stuff on contact. Might need to switch ideas.

There is the Dark Castle concept I had going that one time. So, the question becomes, am I getting into Trouble?

*Hands Marrend a Pop-o-matic Vrillyhoo hammer* I don't know, are you?
I have an undead-related idea too; perhaps we should team up?
*Is scared to enter on his own*

Sign-ups for Forest Map Madness are here and ready to be joined~

We already have our first map back! Graphics are supplied on the game page and your name needs to be added. You don't need to do anything fancy, just one map!

GoGoGo!

I wouldn't say "not anything". Your other project that I've seen looks like a big improvement.

Time to overdo it with hideous amounts of eventing! I'm thinking of doing a "line of sight" game where you're not meant to get caught. No swearing so far, and people around me haven't hidden themselves in cupboards away from my terrifying rage! ^_^

So its like an event within an event? What would one call this?
Might as well give it a shot. Gives me an opportunity to try out experimental concepts (for rm standards). I am terrible at horror though :<

Jokey edit: HEY MAX! FANCY DOING A BACKSTAGE REMAKE TOGETHER!!!?

This month is the month of the EVENT. EVENT growth doubled!

I hope I can just keep myself together through it all!

Do it. Totally do it.

I probably shouldn't be adding to my workload, but more games are always welcome.
Sweetness, hope I can make something good for this~ :o

Can't wait to see how I'll do!
Objecive: Get into SMBX team....
Chances: About the same chance as England getting a GOOD government...
What could possibly go wrong...
No-one really likes me and I didn't make a good impression in RMN Bros 3 or Mario's Mansion (Sigh)
If i'm gonna try I best start making levels...
