Frail souls, foolish and blind, unable to see beyond what reason allows you, you deny everything that does not conform faithfully to your pitiful human logic. Here you will find chilling narratives, mournful events between everyday walls, mirrors that open to other dimensions, perhaps encounters with yourselves beyond madness. Beware, mortal fools, for you shall encounter... ECTOCOMP 2018!
ECTOCOMP is an annual competition for interactive fiction written for the SPOOKY MONTH OF HALLOWEENTOBER. Whether you celebrate Halloween, Day of the Dead, All Saint's Eve, or just love ghost stories and creeping people out, this is your time to shine!

As per tradition, Ectocomp has two categories:
This competition is for games done in English and Spanish. To make hosting the comp on itch.io work, we've split Ectocomp into two separate jam pages.
You are looking at the English ECTOCOMP jam page (use the link below to change language).

VOTES, FEEDBACK, AND COMMUNITY
To vote and participate as a jury, you must do so by giving between 1 to 5 stars at each entry page of the jam. The voting period ends on December 1.
Itchio doesn't allow to leave categories unvoted, so we ask you to vote with the same amount of stars to both categories. We later make separated ranked lists with each category.
In addition to each entry page, each game has its own itchio homepage. It is somewhat confusing, but it is a way of distinguishing when a game belongs to a jam.
Receiving feedback from players is an essential part of participating in a jam. Take the time leave a kind comment to the authors to thank their participation because having some good times (scary ones). There are several places where the community can meet to discuss and comment on the works presented:
Have terrifying adventures!
