If you'd like to hear my ideas, I'd suggest using some different theme - horror can be much more than just graveyards etc.

For example, you could try doing a spooky ancient temple filled with traps and such. You could even use SE/FE textures in it (check the texture packs on the filesystem). That'd certainly make your map unique.

Oh yeah, never thought of that....

.....dammit I already started
Mine's not even going to be scary or anything because I'm not too good at that. Does that mean this contest isn't for me?

Nah, i think you can't make something very scary in Serious Sam, because this game isn't build to be scary...

So i decided that i'm not going to make my map scary but i'll try to add spooky atmosphere in it...

Oh for chickens' sakes. I didn't say the maps HAVE TO be scary (how did you get me wrong anyway?), they should be spooky or athmospheric. I edited the first post just now, perhaps this makes it clearer:

You don't have to make it scary or incredibly dark, just use a proper theme. Your map could be somehow mysterious or have traps and stuff in it. Or something gothic like Haunted Palace. Or just a Halloween map.

How could I explain this? Well, you could even consider Portal to be a contest entry, since it's spooky and has some creepy parts, even though it's not a horror game by any means.

That's perfectly alright.

EDIT: Updated first post again, added the now-official deadline there.

That's what deadline adjusting is for
You don't have to make a big map though, it can be small.

Dunno if we're gonna adjust the deadline anymore (I'd say the absolute maximum would be 15th of December or something, but I don't think we'll extend it again unless several people demand it). For now, just try to get your maps as finished as possible, and like Deepblue said, they don't have to be very long.

Like I said earlier, we could also merge the maps together into a single coop mappack with a coop start level once they're done, so that'd result in 7x15*=105 mins of gameplay time.


*Assuming the overall lenght of each map is 15 mins, can be longer. Sounds pretty sweet for a community mappack, huh?

Default Re: Horror Map Contest!

Okay, anyone else want an another deadline extension to December 15th? I think I'm going to need one myself since I'm so busy these days, plus my mapping's slowed down to a crawl. I still haven't progressed any more than made one terrain, added lightning & clouds, voiceacted about 45 .wav files and modeled one wrecked truck (which took about 4 hours despite being rushed :/). I don't usually even map on normal days since there's so little time, but I'll try to get it rolling again if I can find the inspiration.

Sure, I don't mind about the date. I'll be away for 4 days in December, so that would compensate it.

Alright, updated first post.

Now everyone TRY to get your maps as finished as possible for 15th of December. It doesn't matter if they aren't 100% done as long as they meet the required gameplay time of at least 15 mins. I might not be able to finish mine completely but I'll try my best.

Default Re: Horror Map Contest!

Right. I'm thinking that if I don't get my map(pack) finished on time, I'll just release an alpha version of it or something, or part one that'll be continued later, you guys can do the same. Actually I think I'll just scrap the gameplay time requirement too, it'd be just nice to see what you've made, so if you have participated, just post whatever you have done so far once the deadline ends (as long as it is somewhat playable by testers, meaning you've bothered to add a start to it and made sure that there are no major issues). More finished maps are likely to get better reviews however.

And Deepblue, why do you participate if you know you can't do it on time?

Sorry (I hate telling bad news ), but I've decided to give up making my horror map due to a lack of inspiration.

Could those of you who are still on this please post in this thread? I'd like to know how many will submit something. If there are only like 2 people who have got something done, then I might be willing to change the rules a bit so we could review just the architecture/setting as well.

I'm still working on mine... very slowly however. I think I'm about 1/4th finished my map. (Oh, and I don't mean that 1/4th will last 15+ minutes)

Can the contest deadline be extended a few days? I'm very close to finishing my map's "alpha" version. I just need a little extra time.

Hope there is, I'd love to have at least something to play.

If you guys are interested I may also pack what I've made so far and upload it if anyone wants to take a look at it. Very slim chance that I'll ever continue it though (but someone could use it as a base for building his own map).

I don't think I'm going to make it if I make a full SP map

It'll still have custom enemies though
