Please note this IS NOT a game it's a animation

this is mine and zip zipper's submission for the newgrounds halloween spooktacular. It's very different to our normal styles but we wanted to try something different.

it's a story of a young womans turment which begins to completely unstabilize her game. think of it as a playthough of a creepypasta that she is playing herself and don't roll your eyes because i just said creepypasta IT'S NOT A CREEPYPASTA! that's just the best way I can discribe it.
it's told like an 8bit game with her collection items and her game glitching out.

WARNING THIS ANIMATION DOES HAVE FLASHING IMAGES! it's nothing to bad but thought I'd best warn you just in case.


Loved how you twisted a 8-bit horror story into art. What you were going for was spot on to me. Dark, bloody, n gritty. At parts were scary, I wont lie.

Good job.

Thank you very much :)

Wow. such a short video. such great story

Earthbound the Halloween edition in 8-bit, awesome

Clockworkpixel responds:

Gonna go play earthbounds threed town, be right back. Cheers

I almost never watch or play anything online with sound, so I watched this muted. Still beautifully horrific without audio, and the effects were perfect, right down to the little clock-like loading timer segment. Halfway through, I already decided to give it a 5, it is THAT good. The environment and timing made me feel like I was actually playing a game at times and not watching a movie. Absolutely lovely. :}

And why would I roll my eyes at the mention of "creepypasta"? Creepypasta is the best pasta.

Keep up the awesome work. \m/

Clockworkpixel responds:
