Welcome, ghouls and ghoulettes. It is time for the contest you have all been waiting for - the Design-the-Scariest-and-possibly-most-unique-Ghost-House. Now, you might notice the rules in this thread are far simpler than my previous contests? Why? Simple. Anything goes with this level. You're allowed you use whatever possible resources you can find to make the scariest level. Want to use some spooky HDMA? Go for it. A really scary song? Go for it. Alter the graphics of the sprites to make them look like severed heads? Go for it. You can make the level be any length, any difficulty, anything you'd like. HOWEVER, as usual, do not include cut-off tiles, or glitches. Make it fun to play, well designed, etc.

The judging will be done in two categories:

1. SCARIEST

Alter the ghost house to instill fear and horror into it's players! We know that there is only so much you can do with SMW, but do it to it's fullest!

This will be judged out of 20. A few sentences will be written about it upon judging.

2. BEST DESIGNED

If you don't want to make the scariest ghost house, make the best designed ghost house. Include zany puzzles, interesting twists, or whatever you'd like.

This will be judged out of 20. A few sentences will be written about it upon judging.

It is possible to win in both categories if you have a scary, well designed ghost house.

The deadline for this contest is October 20. NO . EXCEPTIONS. When you have completed your level, please post the following in this thread:

1. A link to the IPS of your file.
2. The name of your level.

Upon doing that, I will paste it in the section at the bottom of this thread.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them here! Good luck, have fun, and Happy Halloween everyone!

All right, I love level design contests.

One thing though, am I allowed to participate even though I won the last contest?
Of course. There will never be a limit to how many contests you can enter.
Sounds like fun. I just might give this a shot.

--------------------
CP_foothills has been canned. Therefore, this space is once again blank.
Nice, I'll join. Just one question though: I've allready started working on Mario wakes up Expanded. But Could I keep on working on it and make it for this contest?
I am SO down for this, no matter what, I will win, even if I have to go to Pac's house and force him to play a really crappy smw hack.

--------------------
are you talking to me??em ot gniklak uoy era
Awesome! I'm going to start working on this right away! ...or atleast as soon as I can find some scary music.
Are you allowed to change the overworld and add custom music as well? (I know you said anything goes, just checking)

--------------------
Look at this 8 year-old layout that I should probably update.
Are we allowed to put cutscenes?

--------------------
Mega Mario:
Oh no, I am no good at making complex puzzles or scary levels for that matter, but I might try. I will have to play ghost houses to get inspiration.

Your layout has been removed.

If you want to, go for it.

It won't be judged since it is a -level- contest, but if you feel it will help enhance the scariness within the level itself, then go for it.

Yes.
Ok, here we go, I'm already like halfway through mine, I have the design and puzzle/mazes almost down, now to make it scary.

... I want to join!!! Time to show off some of my skills...MHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHH! *Cough*

--------------------
This is great :)
I'm almost halfway there too. But i'll make serveral exits so it will probably be quite big. Call it the sequel to mario wakes up. I have something really unique for the level and even a twist at the end. Good luck people :D
count me in, though I shall fail. Are there 2 different categories or just 2 different prizes?

--------------------
*WARNING: due to cosmic radiation, Quantum fluctuations, or earth going into sector x79352C, the world may end at any moment. Have a nice day.

wait one minute... can i make like a 10 level rom hack with a ghost theme... would that be aloud? And could there be an award for best overworld theme...

--------------------
a 10 level hack in 12 days?
It's 1 level and overworlds will not be judged. Reading back helps....
I'm entering! Hopefully I can make HDMA and such for this....

EDIT: Do not expect me to be done! If I am not, I might submit the unfinished parts in or I might just sumbit my sprites for C3.... I have something else for C3 too! Anti-matter Drone pokes Saph.

--------------------
I was wondering...


Will there be a reward for the best vanilla hack? Because I suck at anything custom.
Okay personally I'd say that the deadline is a little too short.

12 days to make a hack that pulls out all the stops is a little... steep.

I'd say make the deadline Oct. 31, just 'cause then it's halloween :P

Us Canadians are kind of busy around this time with thanksgiving OKAY YEAH YOU ARE CANADIAN OOPS

i'll see what i can do :P
