Author note

 

This is my entry for the 2015 Halloween contest, I originally conceived the idea a while back when I was walking down my street and saw a house that looks similar to the one the player enters so I decided to take a mental note and I would use it later. When this contest popped up I thought it would be a fantastic idea to take a break from my other projects to work on this, because I knew it was going to be small I tried to make the mission challenging in other areas.

 

I never thought I would make a creepy/horror style map but here I am, it was a lot of fun and hopefully you all get some enjoyment out of it too!

A classic Halloween mission with the expected scary things inside but a bit linear and somewhat feeling empty gameplay-wise.

*The doors moved somehow smoother/realistically than I've accustomed to. What wizardry is this?


Set the accel and decel rates to 0.7

I can't remember the exact name of the spawnarg but if you open up my map you can check the doors and see.

This is pretty much the kind of mission in size and scope that I expected from the contest! Thanks!

The mission was really enjoyable, and especially the briefing, the black jack joke gave me a good chuckle :P

Considering the tiny build time I really can't criticize anything about the mission, was a solid job well done!

This contest entry felt to me like one of the b/w Universal horror films from the 1930s ... for whatever reasons. Probably for it has the "classic" ingredients of a fine Halloween mission. Which I enjoyed. Thanks Goldwell!

I appreciate all the comments about the briefing video! I made the briefing videos for all of his previous entries, and really enjoy making them. It's the kind of work I've always wanted to do!

This one I made very quickly on short notice for his Halloween entry, despite all my heavy work going on. I'm glad you all enjoy it!

I've offered my help to the Dark Mod Campaign, but it appears they don't need my help with the one they're making. Outside of the next video I'm working on with Goldwell, I'll have a lot of free time this month and would love to make more videos. If you guys need anything don't be afraid to drop me a PM as I love working with this community!

Thanks for that mission, I enjoyed it.

 

Reminded me of a T2 fm I played years ago called deceptive perception.

Appearance: 3

Some very atmospheric stuff here and there! Some kind of bland stuff as well, but that's to be expected considering the time constraints. Seing the huge shadow of the little key floating in the distance was a particularily cool touch.

Nice briefing as well.

 

Gameplay: 2

Not a whole lot of stuff to do, and the patrol patterns of the AI:s felt wonky. An antagonist suddenly and unintuitively changing direction and discovering you due to pathfinding issues is one of my pet peeves.

Spoiler

 

Halloween: 2

Spoiler

 

Some nice groundwork there, given the short construction time. Would love to see you expand on this once the competition is over.
