Fall is upon us and with that comes one of the best events of the year, our annual Halloween Spooktacular!

To participate, simply make a spooky / creepy / horror-themed animation, game, art or song. It can be funny or dead serious, as long as it fits the spirit of the season!

Release your entry by October 31st to participate and tag it with "halloween2017" so we find it.

As always, any music in your game or animation must be used with permission or from a source that has granted an open license / no copyright status. You can't use your favorite song from the radio.

There are PRIZES!

1) Best Animation - $100
2) Best Game - $100
3) Best Song - $100
4) Best Art - $100
5) Best Story - $100 (Story Thread)

Bonus Prize Categories

6) Scariest Entry - $50
7) Funniest Entry - $50
8) Best HTML5 game that works on mobile - $50
9) Best game with NG API integration - $50

If you have a good narrator voice and can tell a scary story, submit it to the Audio Portal under the Podcasts - Storytelling category, promote it in this thread and maybe someone will animate it! You could even try a dramatic reading of something from the Halloween Story Thread.

We'll also have a pumpkin carving contest as Halloween approaches, so think about who from NG you might want to put on a pumpkin.

It would be much appreciated if you would spread the word on social media and let your fans know if you have something in the works.

Thank you in advance to anyone planning to participate, it's always fun to see what everyone makes!

Here's a previous entry by @Butzbo to get you in the spirit.

I'd be completely willing to solo judge a writing competition like I have years ago. Reading and judging the Halloween stories here was a great time. I'll never forget how awesome some of the stories were.

Woo!

I missed the part where you said they can post comments in the thread. That makes this post useless. Can you delete mine real quick?

Ah, this'll be neat to witness. I always hate the start of the new school year in September. It goes by so slow. It's even worse now that I have an internship, but oh well..

These events always cheer me up! Spooktacular will be great! And I also can't wait until the jolly times of Christmas again! I love December. :D

I'd probably upload my (Necrotic Infestation VIP) for this, but eh. Don't think it sounds that good, etc.

No news at the moment, you can use the original API linked under the project system for that.

Wanted everyone to have plenty of advanced notice, I have a bad habit of announcing these things too late.
