Of course the character would need to be upside down after he walks behind the house. ;) But that required more than 5 min work. (roll)
That's pretty cool nonetheless! Thanks!

That is wonderful concept and I checked forums in March 6th unfortunately!

DBoyWheeler that's lovely. Reminds me of Adventure Time, I can even bet that bridge is the Dog from the cartoon. Wait... Is that a dinosaur getting out of it's egg on the moon?
morganw that gave me the feel of Hostage movie, that one with Bruce Willis in it.
Mattie sorry I can't see imgur links... :~(
Cassiebsg hi... I said "wow, is the up a floor too!"(second language activated)

Time to vote!

Entries:

1. DBoyWheeler's Lovecraftian background!


2. morganw's unsettling black & white (& red) scene!


3. Glenjamin's creepy background!


4. Matti's eerie forest!


5. Cassiebsg's Escheresque scene!


Voting categories:

Concept: your background should tell us something about the place you have depicted.
Playability: does it have clearly defined walkable areas, things to interact with, etc?
Artistic Execution: does the image convey the wanted atmosphere? What's the feeling of the place? Is it scary/eerie enough? Would you pass the night alone in it?

Voting ends on the 11th of March 2018.

May someone share non-imgur versions of Glenjamin's and Matti's works? I don't want to vote before seeing them :~(

Can you see mine? If so you seem to have a problem not with imgur, but with https imgur (just remove the s from the https):

My votes are as following:
Concept: DBoyWheeler - I'm just a big Lovecraft fan!
Playability: Cassiebsg - I do like the perspective, lots of puzzles could be built around it.
Artistic Execution: Matti - It's beautiful.

Concept: Glenjamin (mainly for the creep factor)
Playability: Cassiebsg (many places to enter--maybe to chat with an NPC, or find an importan item)
Artistic Execution: Matti (it reminds me of that game "Limbo" for some reason; just feels like a forest in the realm of the dead--if that realm had forests)

Congrats to all.

As for my award... I guess that's a good way to "wrap up" this contest!

Okay I've had a chat with Matti and we agreed that I'll host the next comp. So give me a couple days to think of a decent theme and hopefully I'll start it over during the weekend. (nod)
