EctoComp 2018

Frail souls, foolish and blind, unable to see beyond what reason allows you, you deny everything that does not conform faithfully to your pitiful human logic. Here you will find chilling narratives, mournful events between everyday walls, mirrors that open to other dimensions, perhaps encounters with yourselves beyond madness. Beware, mortal fools, for you shall encounter... ECTOCOMP 2018!

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!

As per tradition, Ectocomp has two categories:

La Petite Mort, for those who want to speed-write their game in 4 hrs or less
Le Grand Guignol, for games that, for whatever reason, took longer than 4 hrs to write (perhaps a more thoughtful masterpiece? perhaps spent too much time writing SCARY DETAILS?)

Also the comp comes in two languages, English and Spanish.
