Pico's School 2: Consequences by Sentio
Intangible by blakedatch
Nightmares One: The Knife by evil-roda

Also please read The Blinding Darkness by Fro, which was a serious contender IMO but I didn't want to look shady by swapping it in. Hopefully we can fine-tune this process in the future, but for now Fro is getting $30 store credit as a THANK YOU.

So there you have it, the best of Halloween 2010! Congrats to all the winners! Be sure to fill out your address form to pass go and collect payment.

Everyone else - take a moment to appreciate all these amazing submissions and share them with your friends!

I'm still in the process of combing through the vast Treasure Hunt thread. I'm hoping to start the wrap-up next week! I've been posting some gems along the way, if you've noticed weird and amazing stuff on the front page this week.

Some brilliant stuff here, well done to everyone. I think I've watched or played most of the submissions here, but those I haven't I'll be sure to catch up on.

That is pretty tragic to be honest, I thought that submission would have been in the top 3 for sure. Good work Fro for getting the judging done on your own- you deserve your reward! Thanks for your hard work, and being a constant face in the writing forum.

Woo hoo! Well done to the other competitors, some great stuff was submitted for this competition, but I am ecstatic that I have won! Probably the first time in 6 years that I have produced something worthwhile for this site, and it goes to show that the month of hard work was well worth it. Anyone that wants to read it still, there is a copy up on my latest news post that is probably a little easier to read than the one in the thread, or PM me and I can email it as a word document- 10k words doesn't translate well in a forum!

I expected Gone Too Far Too to win this. It did not disappoint. I wonder if I can make sense of my first sentence without capitalization.

Note to myself: never again put too much effort into an entry for a contest on Newgrounds. <.<

Anyhow, congrats to the winners.

Haha! The music choices where great(Even if none of the top where of my choice) But it's good to hear that it wasn't a landslide competition, there where a lot of great songs, though it would have been nice to have heard a few more genres involved, or more of certain genres involved.

Also, on a slightly unrelated note. It's kinda awesome to have been mentioned in the last two contests I've helped out in the picking, obviously i must be doing something right xD

Response to Halloween 2010 Winners 2010-11-12 13:25:27


Also, if there is a judging issue again in the lit section, i could lend a hand there in future contests if necessary

Hm, I really put a lot of time and dedication into reading these. It took a couple of full days to judge them, but I tried and succeeded in finding the time to get done what I had promised. Hopefully we can have more judges complete their voting in the future.

Pico's School 2: Consequences by Sentio

This had everything a perfect story should include. It included what I call the, "OHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!" factor.

Intangible by blakedatch

Mind-blowing, original, different, weird. I loved it.

Nightmares One: The Knife by evil-roda

A good idea for a story. I really liked the idea as well. It made me think about the situation a lot and what I would do.

Also please read The Blinding Darkness by Fro, which was a serious contender IMO but I didn't want to look shady by swapping it in. Hopefully we can fine-tune this process in the future, but for now Fro is getting $30 store credit as a THANK YOU.

Thanks a lot Tom! I would have been content with the idea of helping out, but I appreciate the store credit and mention a lot. Now I just have the hard part of figuring out what I want.

Thank you. Thanks for the praise and thank you for providing a story that made the Halloween competition amazing. I saved yours for last and I was happy that it ended on such a high note.

Because Gone Too Far was in the works since early in the year before we started pushing rules about music in contests, I decided to make an exception this time around. I don't intend to make any exceptions in 2011 though.

Road of the Dead was a sponsored game and not a contest entry, it's just in the collection because it fit the time of year.
