Too bad my team already started our project, the Chapter 1 is about a haunted house.

I'm with Seita XD A Halloween Flop sequel would be really fun, fitting, and make up for last year, but I'm trying to work so hard on my current project. The momentum is really starting to flow, and I don't want to risk disturbing that.

I'm definitely trying to come up with a new project to do, but I honestly don't know how well it will turn out. I'm still trying to learn how to maximize the per-event usage since I'm using Lite and am restricted to 10 per map...

*EDIT

My team from the other game have decided to work together on this one as well! ^_^

I recently (September 27th) started gathering and working on graphical and audio resources for a Halloween game, but I have yet to actually create a project file. Is this acceptable for 'pre-existing resources', or would I need to come up with something different?

I started a haunted house game a couple months back but didn't get much farther than the intro, maybe this is a good time to pick it up again.

Though I hate Horror stories, might change it to a Halloween comedy.

Would it count since you already started it? I mean you would be changing the whole theme though, so maybe... Better ask someone in charge though to be certain they would accept it.

Nope. It was more of an experimental/concept adventure game, but no ghosts or monsters or enemies of any kind actually. More a psychological horror. Shame really, cause it would have been fun to do. Still, I'll put it to one side for a rainy day. Maybe next year~

Silent Hill was Psychological Horror and Survival Horror at the same time. You don't have to add monsters since the point was, it has to be scary. (There's also Nonfiction Horror there)  :D

Our team name (and working title) is "Killer Machines" and we are doing a "survival horror", we will be using scripts to get a sort of 2.5D look for it.

I'll not be saying anything more about it outside the team though until it is done!

Ewww, yuck, Pyramid Head...

Well, anyway, I might consider this! But, making a game in a month? Not really my specialty! And I just started my DS pack game too, wanted to actually focus on it, but...who knows?

As for me, I like Halloween and monster themed stuff, to an extent. I don't like the gore and serial killer side, so, yeah, I'm more into the "Halloween Comedy" type thing. And one idea I just had, make monster characters like the Monster Cereal characters!

"Monster Attack" sounds pretty vague...could that be like, a game about monstergirls? I mean, playing as them. Like, a party of Arachne and Lamia, yup.

I'd probably go with a pumpkin heavy idea, because c'mon, pumpkins! http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2013/159/8/4/tumblr_mcrxvfamph1qgirr7o1_500_by_mabelpines2001-d68bmqw.gif

I always try to find ways to have Halloween themed stuff in my RPGs, so making a whole Halloween themed (sorta) game would be right up my alley.

I'm definitely gonna give this a shot.  I've really enjoyed the indie horror genre and would like to find some way to contribute something.

Awww full games only? I'd totally try for some Oneirophrenia action for this as well. We'll see if I do anything, we'll see. (I think I might though!)

This time around I don't have early access to the new maker, so I have to wait like everyone else to look under the hood. I really hope we get to soon though, I'm pretty excited :D

Hi, I am following your videos tutorials serie about coding on MV and I am at the third video. Thank you for making it but's a bit hard to follow since you don't show the whole plugin at the end. I had to screenshot the lines between 110-159 because you scrolled so fast on them.
:rtear:
I'm not sure if I should be happy for MZ, or sad for MV.
Not going to lie.... The update's cool and all, but I immediately ran to Mog's site and was like, "Update! Update! Update!" while breathing on the page of his Star Ocean Battle System plugin. :kaoswt:
Ho boi. I can already see the storm of ugly actor faces RTP customizable facesets from MZ are gonna flood. XD
