It’s time for our annual Halloween Spooktacular!


We’ve kicked off this month with a monstrous site skin by @AshleyZombie and are looking forward to featuring your spooky animation, games, art, music and stories.


To participate, make something scary / creepy / horror-themed (funny or serious) and release it any time between now and October 31st, including the "halloween2020" tag.


There is also a Spooktober Voice Acting Contest with a Horror theme and deadline of October 25th!


As always, any music in your game or animation must be used with permission or from a source that has granted an open license / no copyright status. Here are some music resources! If you’re a musician who has made spooky music, you can post it in this thread and let people know it’s ok to use in their games and animation.


There are PRIZES and they will be increased with help from the community!


If you have the means and love Halloween, donate on our Supporter page and PM me a heads up you donated towards the Spooktacular. You’ll be added to the sponsor list below and retroactively get an event sponsor badge when we roll those out later.

If you’re curious about previous Spooktaculars, here are the 2019 and 2018.


Fun story - 2018 winners received Steam keys for Among Us, which had just come out. Two years later it's the #1 game and we're hosting an Among Us Animation Jam.


If you're not familiar with the skeleton and pumpkin in the site skin, they're Skid and Pump by @SrPelo!



We launched our new video player this week, so animated entries will look better than ever. Happy haunting!

the real spooktacular this year...

is life itself.

Ha ha I love that you gave keys away for what was such a small niche game 2 years ago and now... damn 😳

No way, I'm getting an animation done on time for halloween but might spare some time for a drawing.

It's been a while since the CC released an official Clockoween film:



We're returning this year with a unique idea that we're pretty stoked about. We can't wait to share it with you all.

Finally got around recently to converting this Clockoween collab to MP4 for posterity:


We all wasted so much time making menus back in the day. RIP Flash.

I also enabled Ruffle on the original Flash version and doubled the dimensions, seems to be working well if you'd like to give it a try! This should work on mobile, too.

If I've been working on a game since September to release for Halloween, would it still be alright for me to submit it in the spooktacular?

Response to Halloween Spooktacular with Prizes! 2020-10-03 15:27:08

That's fine! We do this every year so people should be able to plan year-round with cool Halloween stuff. We really just want as much of it to be shared on NG as possible!
