166 Hideous family living in shadow in ancient castle by edge of wood near black cliffs and monstrous waterfall

Deep within the woods, next to a monstrous waterfall resides a castle full of hideous creatures! As the sun comes up, Little Dracula gets tucked into his coffin nice and cozily. His eyes begin to get heavy, but he realizes something is not right! His beloved teddy bear is missing! This will not do!



”In order to find my teddy bear I will have to search all over the castle! I do not care if the sun is up already!” exclaims the little Dracula, “…And maybe my friends will help too!”


 
But be careful, Little Dracula! Vampires sunburn very easily even with the strongest sunscreen! Good Luck!



Game Details:
A simple side scrolling exploration platformer.

Explore the Castle staying in the shadows, and avoiding sunlight! Friends like Little Frankie and Little Mummy will help you along your way!

Find Keys to open locked doors, and secret passages to find your missing teddy bear!

HALLOWEEN UPDATE!:


I was curious to put some stuff together in a working environment, so I crapped out this little program. My computer was lagging because of Cam Studio, the real program isn't so laggy. But, at least you'll get to see where I'm going with this idea. =P Enjoy.

Exactly, if I live in a castle, I live very near a castle.

No, you would be living IN the castle.  That doesn't mean near it, which would imply you don't live in the castle but it isn't too far from where you are.  Living IN the castle means you are within it's walls.

Is English not your first language?  You appear to be missing very basic comprehension on a level that indicates you're still learning.

I'm sorry, you made me stop lurking and post just because I needed to say something.  As well, this is an odd point for you to take exception to, especially while not contributing and discussion or criticism to the first post's proposal.

Good to know that somebody takes offense at jokes! People being silly in forums sure is annoying!

Yeah, I can't believe Hideous took such exception to the "In/near" thing.  It certainly is silly, I'll grant you that.  It'd be worse if I tried to correct him and someone got butthurt over my actions.  Luckily, this is not the case, and Earth can sleep in peace tonight knowing all is right in the world.

Are you planning on having the monsters be old school horror (creature from the black lagoon, wolfman, etc.), or something more modern?

Well, wolfman wouldn't be affective because of the sunlight in the game, but yes! Think Munsters. I am going to have his family be a Frankenstein's monster, and etc. But there will not be any bosses or anything, it's just a simple exploration game, just stay out of the sun! =)

Cutesy monsters inspired by the Munsters?  Sounds pretty damn good to me Smiley

Of all the awesome things going on around you in this forum to comment on, you chose this as your first post.

Congrats.

I'm not biased, nor do I dislike you.  I merely corrected you.  Ha, ha, we are some wild and crazy guys.

I mean, if you want to act like I'm just being a cock because I have some unfounded vendetta against you, by all means have at it.  The reality is, though, that I jumped in and corrected you for reasons you apparently don't comprehend.  We all have our forms of humor.

In fact, if you have a good read through the Commonplace book, you'll see Lovecraft seems to be outright obsessed by Hideous. Hideous' family, Hideous' insects, even Hideous' possessions. All inspited him. It's as if he knew this competition was going to happen sometime in the future, and needed to send a message.

 Huh?
