I'll host it again this year. Please consider Ectocomp open for all platforms with willing participants.
The rules: write an IF suitable to Hallowe'en in three hours or less. You can get a good idea of the spread of available topics by checking out previous year's entries
. We've had a haunted forest house, spoofs on Dracula, a tales from an asylum, freaky trick or treating stories, post-apolcalyptic scenarios, you name it. It need not be horror, but in the spirit of the season it should involve some Hallowe'en element-- monsters, ghosts, fright, or the like.
A general note has been that the 3 hour restriction applies only to the actual coding of the game. You may plan for as long as you want, but as soon as you open your developer, start the clock.
Deadline for entries will be October 30th at midnight. This way people can start playing on Hallowe'en if they so wish. We will decide how long judging will last based on the number of entries received.
If you have an entry to submit, please send it to me at bowsman d (all one word, lowercase) at geemail.com (except without the e's). Thank you.
