RELEASE! A Very Haunted Halloween

Hello there, ladies and gentlemen.
I am about to spin a chilling tale of horror, following poor mario's quest to face his deepest fears. This is a tale that was designed just for the Halloween spirit- and for your frightening enjoyment. We here are the Team Haunted Cryptic Tales Storytellers will chill, thrill, and fufill the craving we all have for a spooky tale.
So huddle a litter closer around our campfire, and allow our ghouls and ghoulettes spin a tale of horror. Closer, please...we wouldn't want any unwanted guests to, let's say, take you out for a stroll.

The premise of our story is this; you may remember a adventure Mario had a few months ago, called the Haunted Desert. In this tale, he ran through a spooky desert, and spookier castle. This tale was very popular, so we here at Team Haunted decided we should continue Mario's quest, as he returns to the Mushroom Kingdom.
Only this time we are using the creative juices of all the ghouls that we can get! Well known Spooks like Electron, Anonimato, and Kristian have contributed, along with the startlingly handsome and smart Maxx. It's a collab story, so you may see more names in the future!

Mario comes closer to the Mushroom Kingdom. However, he approaches a field that has been darkened by a haunted force, and a abandoned mansion right in the center. Mario approaches, determined to smite any evil to return the land to it's state.

This tale is not finished, but you can see it done soon- before October 31. But we won't keep you waiting FOREVER- how about these little snippets we are willing to share?
Here is Maxx's part of the story.

A Haunting tune..

Mario nears the mansion...a little lightning and darkness never hurt anybody...well, not any of OUR kind, anyway..

You will hear more of this haunted tale from more of our spooks later...
Until then...try to sleep tight! Muahaha!

If you are still hungry for more...perhaps our home base can provide! Come, step into our resting place... You can go there for some more information.
It looks very nice. Can't see anything wrong. Great work. Looking forward to completion.
This looks very nice actually.

Since it's a Halloween hack a presume it should be done by the end of this month.

Keep up the good work Team Haunted!
Yeah the hack should be finished by the end of the month! I see no cut-offs or glitched stuff in the screen shots! Plus seven more days till the end of the month! =O
Your layout has been renewed.
Come one and all to the Autumn Tunnel, a beautiful place on the outside, but look closer, and you may just meet your end...

(PS I already know about the white in the bushes, and the dirt not having shading. >_>)

Wow, looks good so far. Im going off to play the Haunted Desert right now.
Oh yeah baby!

I am all about some good times with Halloween hacks! You're first set of screenshots are what really reeled me in - please don't let go! Definitely going to be up all night on Halloween :) Also, I highly enjoyed The Haunted Desert.

Ohohoho! The spirits have convinced me that the condemned souls who play our tale must know of their surroundings, so here is a general map.. the spirits will get more exact with your criticism as well as as time goes on.
The story's chapters are almost all in; we wait for one more regular chapter and the final (and finale) chapter, which is a collaboration of all our storytellers. We will be cutting it close, but expect something to play Halloween night!

So long, foolish mortals...hope the spirits allow you glimpses of a few more levels..
Oh, I didn't even notice you had shown the overworld.
I really like the spooky palette, and in this case, it's good you didn't overly decorate it. It's more barren and spooky this way.
I also really like how the dark the water palette is, it works even though the land is a light colour.
Only thing I would say is maybe add more ups and downs...?

Ohh, creepy OW :3.
I like it.

they say... i forgot
You guys are just ultra awesome. Everything is beautiful, that music is very catchy (also reminds me a bit some Banjo-Kazooie song) and the Overworld looks fantastic too! Can't wait to try it (unfortunately I can't join, I'm quite sick at the moment and I have an other project too :( )

edit: I'm really glad for everyone who liked the Haunted Desert :D

Everything is great so far. I'm loving it all!

However, Do not forget your obligatory Ghost House level. You know, one that will really scare people. :)

Status: Dead until I regain interest. Link to hack thread.

Oh, crud...I don't think I even got involved in this. Is it too late? I don't have anything in mind, nor do I have any graphics for the occasion, but I think I could whip something up before Halloween.
You can still signup in the Team Haunted's thread.

Oh well, I'm don't know these games, just remembered some SMW port like this. And I remembered there was a "Banjo" in the title :P

You sure about that?

Anyway, the hack looks neat. I will look forward to checking it out, sometime this month (week?)!

Looks nice. The level design looks pretty good and you all have done a good job at setting the theme up. One thing I noticed, though, is that in the first few screenshots, the foreground and background graphics are a bit more detailed than the other may want to change that.

Keep up the good work.

A last set of peeks before the release- at least, on my part.
