This is an entry to the 2012 All Hallows' Event game competition so don't expect it to be fantastic. It's meant to be made in a month, after all.

Story:-
Ted isn't spending his Halloween at his friend's cool party. No, instead he's being forced to do something useful by his lame parents: babysitting trick-or-treaters. Despite wanting to ditch such a boring chore, Ted has been offered compensation for his time in the form of money - money Ted could use to throw his own cool party!

Ted escorts two of his neighbour's kids around: Felix and Rex, both of whom enjoy causing trouble and running off on their own. Getting bored, Ted decides he wants to cut things short and go home (maybe he can still catch the end of that party). When Rex asks if they can go to the next street of houses, Ted tells him that there's a scary abandoned house that they shouldn't go near! Being the adventurous type, Rex drags his sister off to go find it. Fearing he won't get his money, Ted follows them and finds the abandoned house he thought he had made up. Inside, he finds a portal which he follows Rex and Felix through.. into another dimension!

This dimension seems exactly the same as his own, but Ted finds there are a few certain.. quirks.. to be wary of.


Gameplay:-
A stealth based game where you'll be avoiding baddies. If you get caught, you'll be sent back to the start of the stage. I dunno how many stages this game is going to have just yet, but I'd like to get at least 10 short strips of "town" environment to venture through.

If you put the sound effect from Metal Gear Solid when Snake gets spotted... it will be the scariest game ever :P

Looks great. Looking forward to it!

You know, I should totally do that! I might have special bonus packages at the end that you can buy with all the Ghosties you collect, so maybe I'll throw in an MGS pack (Sana already suggested the cardboard box). XD

Aw, thanks.. but I'm not exactly a rival. ^^ This is for funsies and achievements, so it will be ill polished and rushed as hell!

Let's call it a friendly rivalry, then.

What about just a friendly friendship?
Awww, Caz is too nice.
Rivalry! We want Rivalry! (not really)

We can call it that. Still, I'm hoping to earn more than the participation badge this time around. Maybe it'll happen. Maybe it won't.

With Liberty's new event I'm gonna struggle to even finish this game, so I'm really hoping to get that participation badge at least! I wish you luck in your quest for more, though!

A download, Not a Chance - ALPHA, was added for Not a Chance of a Ghost!.

Yep. Really early demo for anyone who wants to check it out and potentially sniff out some bugs or steal ideas. XD This is my safety net in case I can't finish the whole game in time (at least something will be up and out there).

Not a Ghost of a Chance doesn't stand a ghost of a chance against me!

Necessary joke was necessary.

Necessary joke may be correct, considering how many times the system fudged up when I playtested. D:

Well, consider your work cut out for you! My playtesting went off without a hitch. The opening of the game was cute. Did you draw all of those pictures?

Anyway, my one-and-only complaint was that dash was disabled. I dunno. It wasn't a huge determent to be taken back to the beginning of a stage when I got caught. I also think I understand the design decision behind disabling dash. The player in me wants to be able to dash, though. I can't pinpoint an exact reason for this thought, outside of "GIMME SPEED OPTIONS!", so I'm okay if you ignore this portion of my rant.

Oh, good! I'm glad it went well! And yes, I very, very quickly threw together the pictures at the start (hence their quality).

I did heavily consider whether to add dashing or leave it out, and it was a tricky decision indeed.. I think I've decided that at certain points, you'll be given more inventory items like speed power-ups that allow you to walk faster for one level. They'll also be available at the end-of-game shop for you to spend your Ghosties on!

It was a tough decision, and I know what you mean about wanting to dash all the time. I think VX/Ace kinda ruined that for me a little, because I hold shift at all times no matter what game I play.

(Thanks for testing it, by the way! I'll be sure to add you to the credits for helping me out! :P)

Yeah, spending Ghosties for advantages like that sounds like a decent idea!

I press Shift, and expect to dash, even when I'm in 2K/2K3. That's how bad off I am.

Awwww! Now I just feel all fuzzy inside!
I love your use of colours to show you who's talking.
Love the story and humour in it, I was chuckling out loud at some points.

This is actually a whole bunch of impressive. You just gotta finish it!
I envision the stage clear screen will have more info when/if you do? Like time taken, coins collected and whatnot? :)

Anyway, good job!

Yes indeed! But other than time taken and Ghosties collected/total, I dunno what else to put. Maybe a "grade" depending on how much time you took and how many times you were caught? Maybe your grade would apply a multiplier to how many Ghosties you collected per level.

Thanks for testing it out, and for the feedback! Your name shall also be listed in the credits ^_^
I like the grade idea that's based on how well you did through the stages.
Those things make me want to redo the stage if I get a D or lower haha.
C always seems to be fine for me, though...

I can't live with myself until I get the SS grade.. maybe I'll make them really super difficult to get!
As long as rank C is easy to get, I agree - do that :P
