EctoComp 2017

You shudder, walking through the night breeze. Lights are flickering off in the distance and your chance of reaching safety in time is slimming. A shadow moves swiftly to your left; your gaze darts towards it but it disappears. Suddenly your eyes widen as you see your end approach before you... a looming ECTOCOMP 2017 has arrived!

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 (in, like, a spooky ghostly way)!

As per tradition, Ectocomp has two categories:

1) La Petite Mort, for those who want to speed-write their game in 3 hours or less.

2) Le Grand Guignol, for games that, for whatever reason, took longer than 3 hours to write (perhaps a more thoughtful masterpiece? perhaps spent too much time writing SCARY DETAILS?).

This year, we also have Ectocomp in Español! To make hosting the comp on itch.io work, we've split Ectocomp into two separate jam pages and two languages, English and Spanish (That's a total of four jam pages).
