We’re excited to announce the Castle Halloween Party, a two-week long event where everybody is invited to hang out, make games, and play games with us in Castle, a new LÖVE-based platform for mobile and desktop.
Castle is a new, open source game platform that uses LÖVE 11 but every game can be loaded instantly over the network, like a web browser. There are clients for Windows and Mac, and Android and iOS clients are in alpha testing. Linux is planned. Castle also includes built-in chat and user profiles and avatars.
Create something spooky
What better way to spend halloween than in a Castle? Castle Halloween Party is a creative celebration where you can make any game that inspires horror, spookiness, a mild chill, or just something weird and fun.
Learn how to makes games with Castle
During the first week of Castle Halloween Party, Castle team members will be streaming short video classes on how to make stuff in Castle. Tune in to meet the team and learn about subjects ranging from creating your first project to making 3D worlds in Castle. We’ll put all the classes on YouTube afterward in case you miss the stream. October 25–31, Schedule TBD.
Win some treats
It wouldn’t be a real Halloween celebration without some loot. As such, we have a limited amount of stuff we’re giving away during Castle Halloween Party.
We want anybody to feel welcome to show up, learn, make stuff, and generally hang out and be included. For that reason, we’ll mail out Castle T-Shirts for anybody who puts substantive effort into making a Castle game during Castle Halloween Party. These are some seriously soft shirts, folks. And we don’t know when you’ll have another opportunity to get one.
If you’re feeling especially serious, we also have some cash awards to pique your interest:
- $250 to the best overall game as voted by Castle staff.
- $250 to the most liked game as voted by all the Halloween Party attendees.
- $500 to the game that accumulates the most daily players over the course of the event.
- $250 to the game that accumulates the second-most daily players.
Awards will be announced on Nov 12, 2019.
