HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO AGS!!!

Here's a retake on a classic jumpscare game that fits this spooky season here in 2016 I felt (and perhaps for more reasons than the obvious Halloween one) :

I'm not a fan of jumpscares but I'm nevertheless compelled to try this :D

EDIT: Well, I got exactly what I expected, so... good job? :=

My suspicion is that an accident, probably caused by a lightning storm and a mad professor, resulted in Amayirot's brain becoming inextricably linked to the databases behind MobyGames and LemonAmiga.

Did I get anyone else?

I tried to make the ending as scary as possible considering the season, just not in quite the way one might expect...

I took it as a challenge not to jump and failed. It was far more scary than I could have imagined.

Ha ha, good jump scare.
I was expecting it, and yet you still managed to catch me unprepared. (laugh)

   Is it save here?  Are 'they' gone?

Phew – that was really hard stuff - and ...

You ... got ... me!

                     totally

                         

That's more a 'fly scare' than just a 'jump scare'
and those monsters are really to be warned for – it's adults only!

Very well done, Mister Nightmare!

Thank you... I was really striving to come up with the scariest monsters imaginable... Glad to hear I succeeded! ;-D

Also: cheers Stupot and Danvzare: glad you also got a little pants delivery during the scariest of seasons!

I, too, pooed my pants. I suspect this scare has a bit of delayed release. Feels scary now, but will feel extra scary come January of next year.

Oh geez, just one more download and I get on the most downloaded of the week list...

That, in itself, is a spooky thought...
