I’m doing my part.

Was really refreshing how different and cool every entry was. There was one that was almost an old-school CYOA novel, one that was almost entirely narrative with just a few meaningful choices on what flavour of fresh horror would befall the protagonist, one that was breathtakingly customisable, one that was almost a video game in structure, and one that completely defied classification entirely. I liked the creativity of the one that explored the same interaction from both characters’ perspectives, and the one about metaphysical loss of time and self was a trip. Enjoyed all of them. Difficult to pick four to disclude from the vote. Wondering now which one will win.

Coming from you It is a great praise. I am sure the writers would and should feel proud of their work.

It was really fun to work on my entry. It was nice writing a smaller more contained experience than what I’ve done so far.

Been on the forum for years now but I think this is the first halloween Jam that I got to vote on.

If that was mine, I love the way you described it. So dramatic :skull:

@will You had made all guessing who is who in your post. Now seriously I am delighted that people are voting and having fun.

I hope also, that this waiting and interaction helps to learn to cope with reviews and waiting in the future for people who want to publish, and who have never ended a game previously

It was so much fun to be evil for a change.

I know that you have a lot on your plate but I believe that you have a diamond here only need little polish. It is clear publishing material.

Congratulations to the top scorers and to everyone who took part in the jam! As I’ve said elsewhere it was truly inspiring to see the creativity on display and the different interpretations of the theme and of game structures. A huge well done!
