A lot of the popular ones are on this list and I can confirm at least half of them being great, so that gives a good chance the whole list is a good find. I've heard great things about LISA and Corpse Party. Misao is also popular and made by the same person who made Mad Father.
The one's I'd recommend the most are, aside from the one's mentioned in the jam description, are Ao Oni just to try it out since it's one of the very first. I didn't like the gameplay much but it is a classic of the genre. One of my favorite things to do as well is to find free horror rpg games on itch and try them out. The Scream Horror Jam had a lot of good one's this time around. Not all made with RPG Maker but still the same genre and some have the same style.
Yes, you should already be able to upload an update :) (if not let me know and I'll look into it)
I'll be streaming submitted games from the second month this weekend so if you get the update, it may be tonight, tomorrow, or monday depending on the votes in the discord announcement) but yup updates are allowed but if you want your game streamed on discord I'd suggest trying to upload it by tonight.
It is made in RPG Maker with most of my own assets. It’s so large because the feature with the program that removes unused files doesn’t work right, it takes out used files and makes the game unplayable, and I didn’t have time to go through everything by hand
I'm in love with the art and paper style graphics! The map transitions with the book closing were cool, I would have loved some sounds to go with the pretty art and lighting(not sure if that's a bug or you didn't include sound). Cute characters and style, this has potential to be an even bigger game if you wanted to expand it, nice work
You can use them :) Those are free to use and provided in the program when you buy it. There are also lots of free RTP edits in the forums, as long as you credit your resources for the edits you'll be fine there!
The jam will be extended one month through October so you can work on your spooky games up until Halloween happens.
The discord will feature a chat for games that were finished in the first month for those who put in that time as well as a chat for second month submissions. Happy RPG Horror celebrating enjoy the extra time.
I'm working on a project that I started earlier this year and wouldn't mind a composer joining for some more original sounds! Here's my project, trying to get an update for this jam: https://vitaliadi-productions.itch.io/burden-2-remnants My Discord is VitaliaDi#7272 if you're interested, I'll shoot you a message!
As long as you use pixel style graphics it can be 2D or 3D. I have seen some games use 3D assets with a retro pixel style so it’s doable. There’s a lot of room for creativity, typically these games are 2D but if you can get the atmosphere down with 3D graphics in a pixel style go for it! That would be super unique :)
As long as you follow the ANTs guidelines everything else is fair game!
- Atmosphere: pixel-style graphics with mood-setting sounds (or lack of)
- Narrative: creative story, plot, and/or world that often has multiple or twist endings
- Tone: surreal, "off", mysterious, or creepy tones are common. Horror takes many forms, use your imagination!
You can make a fan-game, try to copy game mechanics, or make something all your own as long as it follows ANTs :) Go wild
Thank you! I tried to put as much detail as I could in such a small amount of time for the jam :) This will eventually be a full game with endings and many more maps, I'll create a devlog whenever there are substantial updates
Really beautiful maps with fun looking npcs, it was fun to explore and there was deifnitely love and effort put into the graphics here. Really lovely to look at with a fun concept and gameplay twist too.
Very beautiful atmosphere and art, the Wonderland themes were a lot of fun to play through and there was enough of a challenge in the maps to keep the gameplay interesting along with all the pretty sights.
Will do and thanks for the interest! I don't claim creation to most of the art, I've edited free resources to save time. RPG Maker assets are very beautiful and the community is alive with creating and sharing :)
I love the atmosphere of the game, really simple graphics that worked nicely. The music was everything, really pulled me in. Nice, simple, and cool. Nice job i such a short amount of time :)
