It’s time for our annual Halloween Spooktacular! We’re looking forward to featuring your spooky animation, games, art and music this month.


To participate, make something scary / creepy / horror-themed (funny or serious) and release it any time between October 1st and end of day (PST) October 31st, including the halloween2021 tag.


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.


Entries in the Milkypossum Spooky Animation Jam are qualified to place in the overall Halloween Spooktacular.


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

Are updates to existing games eligible? Our team's been planning on bringing a gamejam game to Newgrounds along with a lot of new content, but I just wanna make sure we wouldn't be breaking any rules by entering it in this contest. The game came out in June and we've been working on the update on and off for about 2 months.

I have an idea, is it okay if its rated R? Not NSFW intent. Basically just boobs and possible simulated sex but on par with a typical Rated R movie.
