About the Contest

The theme of this contest is scary movies, and creating an adaptation of it in game form. It can be an RPG, a platformer - any kind of game genre. The main goal of this contest is to see how well you can transfer a movie into another platform, and whether or not you can “crop” the necessities to make a good short game in a limited amount of time. How “true to the film” you want to be is entirely up to you, though it is preferred that you try and stick to the movie as well as you can, for it will be a category in the judging process. If not, then it is fine too - just be prepapared to possibly suffer some point loss depending on the judge.

Rules
General Rules
* The game must run on Windows XP or higher, the judges should not require any additional components to play your entry.
* Games should contain a text file containing instructions on how to play your game, as well as properly documenting any resources you used!
* Games started before the start time are frowned upon.
* Entries must be submitted before the deadline to be accepted.
* Extensions will be granted only in truly exceptional circumstances. If extensions are given they will apply to all participants.
* Your movie must be on this list of Horror films from IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/genre/horror. If it isn't, you will definitely be losing points.
* No games that are made from movies that are made from games (Resident Evil, Silent Hill, etc.).
* Your game can be made in any engine and can be of any genre, not just an RPG.
* Although this is a competition, you are expected to show proper sportsmanlike conduct to your competitors. Trash talking and the like will be frowned upon.
* Most important rule: Have fun!

Judging
The categories for judging will be: visual appearance, audio, interface, game play, tasteful adaptation score, and overall impressions. This is pretty general, however the one category that is different from other contests is how close to the movie is your game or "Tasteful Adaptation". It is entirely up to you if you want to make a scene-to-scene adaption, or just draw thematic influences from a horror movie film. Just beware this category! :)

EDIT: Apparently.

I'd enter this, but 1. i don't really know any horror movies I'd want to remake and 2. I'm doing other stuff.

EDITEDIT: This black is too black and the team names are too gray and the little title bars are too default. But I like the images at the top.
Typo in the first sentace:

- anything you game genre.
Can I do recruitment for my team on forums, or here?

This is the RM mentality.


I just can't come up with a good movie to adapt. if I do come up with one I might give this a stab. I'm also open to help out on any team that would have me. (not that I'm of much use)
The annual Halloween contest. o/ Too bad I can't partake this year, because the theme is way more itnersting than last year.
I'm thinking The Ring... or Scream. But I don't want to work alone. ;(

Having a signature is too mainstream. I'm not part of your system!

Twilight is apparently a horror movie. Someone should jump on that.

It terrified me when I was a child. They were all singing songs! It was horrible! I had nightmares for YEARS!!!

But yeah, ldida1, you do need to pick a scary movie. Like, for example, Child's Play, or Halloween.
