This is a remake of a classic game here on Newgrounds.

Original creators: Violet-AIM & XwaynecoltX
All new Art/Animation/Programming/Writing: Graeme "Noodle"
All voices: JayWEccent
Ghost Motel Remix: Slaleky

The original Ghost Motel came out on November 13th, 2002. When I saw that the 13th anniversary would be a Friday the 13th, I got to work immediately!
My intention was to release this game on the exact anniversary, but I only had two weeks to make it. I worked on it for 20 hours straight and pulled an all nighter on the 12th. The game broke, and the deadline was missed. I pulled it apart, and re-code the game. One benefit is that I was able to add a lot of features that would have been previously cut. I think it feels like a much more full game now!

I want to give a huge thanks you XwaynecoltX for giving me permission to make this game, and for the encouraging words while it was being developed.

Slaleky and JayWEccent are heroes for how quickly they were able to produce and hand in their contributions! They really made this thing feel official, and complete.

I hope the fans of the original can get behind this remake, and enjoy the series with a fresh set of eyes!

Cheers.

EDIT (22/11/2015): I have made a small update to the file. It isn't much, but hopefully it makes it a bit more clear when the game has ended. I also made "Lost Hope" a tiny bit easier.

Lovely remake with very high production values. The voice acting is superb.

I love this if only because it's new in the series. I'm so glad to have something designed by XwaynecoltX. The most prolific reviewer on this website deserves to contribute something like this here. It's a pity this isn't that more well known. I'm glad I got the first medal. I rarely do that on my own with point and click adventures games.

I guess I just like how nice this is. It's a game with a very authentic feeling. The voices are really good. I know I'll never make anything this good here with all of my reviews. The music's great too.

Really great stuff

So first off just want to say this was an honor to see and play and when I first heard about this was going to happen couldn't pass this up, but as I play and watch the game/adventure, It takes me back with all that has been done with this series, So first thing I will touch on is the opening scene thanks for keeping it to how it all started, another thing would be the "VOICES" Now while I myself did some voices for the originals I must say that the voice actor here has done an outstanding job and really helped to bring this alive, As I play thru the game seeing the shades and little details that make a game great really has improved on the idea itself, I also like that you gave the characters some "HUMOR" that was a nice touch, Oh and that music really takes me back to some things haha really great stuff, I also like how you added a tad bit of your own mix to things here combining original and new styles, So overall I was very please with everything fro start to finish here.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
To be really honest you have done an outstanding job, maybe adding a button to speed up "CONVOS" but only in the case of people not finishing the game and have to go over it again, but that its not a big issue, another not big issue would be the "HIT-BOX" targets for buttons could be a d bigger but the game itself ran fine as it was, really no issues to improve on though.

I hope you picked up the "Nostalgia" medal while you were at it ;)


WOW! This truly is amazing. The touch at the end is so much more better than just implementing an Evil Dead image. This actually made me jump. The art is pretty cool too and the beginning seems a little more immersive. Thanks for having me be apart of this wonderful project!!! It really means a lot to me.

It wouldn't have been the same game without you!
I've already received a number of compliments on the stellar voice acting in the game.

I can't jump at the end, because I spent too long trying to fine tune it that I am to conscious of it. I'm glad to hear it can catch other people off guard!
