Spooky Jam

Against the black void, looms the lunar sphere. Hungry ghosts haunt, satisfied by fright. Oh my! The children's faces blanch in fear. And thus the small summit embodies white...

Knock! Knock! Who's there? Could it be… the little ghostie?

Who?

This game jam is another one of the 4 annual Halloween Jam heads by Princess Sonya and Empress DAX. Spooky Jam is the year 2020 Halloween Jam hosted on CloudNovel.

  • I am so excited to be known as the host of the most awesome-epic-fantastic-bombastic Halloween party this year. I have to make sure everything is going fine but as I welcome the last guest to the party; I hear a knocking on the door. Who's there?
  • As a manager of the most prestigious hotel, I love Halloween! Why? Because there will be a lot of guests in the hotel! I am so ready to welcome my little cashb- ahem, I mean, honorable guests with an open arm, but little did I know, our hotel will be visited by someone or something beyond imagination.
  • I am a recently died ghost. This year will be my first time celebrating Halloween as a wandering soul. If I visit a house and say Trick and Treat, will they give me candy or allow me to pull on a trick?
For other types of entries such as dress up games and resources, you are required to create Halloween-based entries.

It's Hollo Night and all the other Wolves are out howling at the moon, partying, and going door to door getting candy. I'm just going to stay indoors this year. After last year's fight with my friends, I've been taking it solo, and I'm not about to break that isolation streak just yet. At least, till someone familiar knocks on my door.
