  • Results From Game Design Challenge: Halloween Haunts

    - Danny Cowan
  •  From small-town haunted hay rides to massive mazes staffed by professional actors, seasonal haunted attractions are now opening for business in time for Halloween. Haunted houses are a popular game motif as well, with the first Resident Evil presenting a memorable adventure that takes place in a mansion filled with a variety of terrifying monsters.

    The horror genre has expanded significantly in the years since, and scary sheds, terrifying trailer homes, and other abysmal abodes remain great atmospheric settings for all sorts of stories. We think the setting is ideal for creative horror-themed gameplay concepts.

    For Game Career Guide's latest Game Design Challenge, our readers designed games that take place within haunted houses. Here are our top picks!
