The winners of our Halloween Spooktacular have been decided!

Each of these winners will receive $100 and a Steam key for Among Us, the latest game from @PuffballsUnited and @ForteBass' company, @innersloth!

Among Us is a 4-10 person party game where players prep a spaceship to depart while one is an impostor bent on killing everyone.

We upgraded the animation category to THREE $100 winners because the entries were so damn good.

The Nightmarish category comes courtesy of Nightmare Cops of course.

Animation - Funny

Animation - Serious

Animation - Nightmarish

Best Game

Best Art

Best Audio

Special thanks to @Peregrinus, @LexRodent, @NekoMika, @liljim, @Exedor and @PhantomArcade for weighing in on audio. This was a tough one because everyone had different favorites. There are a lot of really talented musicians on NG!

Other Events

Pixel Day is happening on January 23rd, 2019 and you can celebrate with pixel art, animation, games or chiptunes. If you know someone who may like to participate, be sure they know about it! We'd love to see this become a really big deal every year.

Congrats to all the winners! They certainly put in a lot of effort. I'm glad to have participated this year, I never thought I'd actually be making something for an NG event! So, yeah, thanks for the update, Tom! I saw the movie winners and played the game, but I have yet to listen to the music. Something to do, I suppose.

Shit, I forgot to mention that. Sorry. I guess I didn't write anything in the end. But, don't worry, I got you as a fellow literary enthusiast. I read the first paragraph, but I'll read the rest when I have some time.

Grats to the winners. Not to sound like a downer, just my personal thoughts, it looks like a cute game, but honestly, it looks like it should be on Newgrounds, I can't really see anyone paying for it in it's current state, but I guess integrating multiplayer is harder on Newgrounds, but not impossible. I would play it for free, good concept, cute game, not bad graphics just, doesn't seem Steam quality, as much as I'm a Puffballs fan, it feels too simple to pay for, and he's made better.

Also New on Steam

@Hyptosis worked on Loria and @AdventureIslands made Duke Dashington Remastered.

Duke is on Steam for money? I find that sort of funny considering it was on NG for Pixel Day....for free. That's a bit of a headscratcher. $5 is a bit much for a short game, too. Maybe $2 or $3, but not $5, as much of a quality game as it is. Good on Hyptosis on Loria though, he's been putting a lot of work into that. Grats everyone.

I hope I don't sound like a stickler, just being honest to give feedback.

That is some real dedication. The dance grows on you after awhile.

Rip it out was hard to watch just from the animation. The pulsing heart/thing looked violent and painful. The story and characters didn't do much for me, but man, visually, ick.

Yeah it was unpleasant, but in a masterful way IMO! It takes a lot to build up an atmosphere like that for me, and I appreciate anything that really brings forth an emotional response. It really was dark, and I love the ambiguity and full-circle ending too. Long time since I saw something like it.

Yeah, any sort of storytelling video should always leave loose ends for the viewer to figure out on their own. In this case the beating stopped when the other one died. I hate when shows waste time making us familiar with things that either dont matter, or we could easily figure out on our own. Like when character names are mentioned when everybody addresses each other in the first 5 minutes, even though people who know each rarely ever do that if they're already in a conversation.

Hmm yeah, that's true, not sure I've ever considered that particular scenario but over-explaining things can definitely ruin a good script. Gotta take note of how often names are mentioned past entry next time I watch something like that, interesting detail...
