It's very cute :) There's a lot of player choice, the artwork is nice and of course, it's very halloweeny!
Didn't find any bugs, although there were a few typos around, talking to dad, mum when we're leaving the house, one of the adults says 'you're costumes' instead of your, and one of the children. (It was the mummy, but I'm not sure if the npc costumes swap depending on what the player picks, which would be pretty cool.)
The dog could have done with a face for the menu I think, and it was a bit of an odd choice that you could walk through npcs, though I suppose it stops them from blocking doors.
You did a really nice job spookifying the battle system. Unfortunately it wasn't really engaging for me. I should have probably been a bit more strategic about picking costumes since I just went with my favourite creatures, and ended up feeling really powerless, but I don't like turn based battles so that's not really a fault of the game. Overall, great job!
@Rhino Thank you for pointing out where to find the typos I missed!The dog and baby lacked portraits due to the time limit sadly. An updated version will be made after the contest.The other trick or treaters can only be walked through when they step onto someone elses yard/walkway, since RPG Maker MV has an issue with loading events that aren't on screen. Depending on what the player does, they can cause NPCs to permanently block themselves into small spaces. Once the NPCs are on the sidewalk, they can't be walked through anymore. (I could make an edit, and make them passable under other conditions, to remove this, but being in a rush, I picked what was quicker to make.)By the way, which costumes did you pick?(Also, I tried to make the game possible to beat w/o using combat, but I didn't have time to make the alternate ending for a "non-combat route". Which I plan to also add in the update. But the rest of the combat can be avoided or ran from.)Again, thanks for taking the time to tell me this!
I went with a vampire as my main, and I ended up calling my siblings Boo and Goo so I couldn't resist the ghost and werewolf 'cuz I thought it'd be so cute! Maybe I should have gone to the witch and been more true to myself haha.
I did manage some of the battles, but I felt like most of the time I was just running back to mum and it felt a bit tedious to me. You did a great job getting everything to work as well as it did in the time so I wouldn't be upset about missing the non-combat route, but I think that's a nice idea for an update since it'll open your game up to a wider audience, and multiple endings are always great for replayability :)
Short, SWEET and to the point very cute game. well done!
