Very Small Scary Game

Earlier this month, I was browsing Randi’s awesome game development competition calendar (linked here) and noticed one that looked like fun: Scary Four Digits 2011. The basic idea? Create a scary game in the month of October, in time for Halloween.

I didn’t have much time to work on this one, but I had kind of a neat idea. I decided to try to make it in under and hour, and was pretty much successful. Ok I’ll come clean… I worked on the ‘script’ beforehand and added the background sounds afterwards while watching the World Series. Let’s say ‘roughly’ an hour (or two).

I made Scary Game with Unity3D and the Playmaker plugin. I used Paint.NET to make the crappy into screen, and Audacity to make the sounds.

The font I used is called 1942 report, and is available for free here. I got the typewriter sound from hereLose/Lose was an inspiration for this project.
