  • Results From Game Design Challenge: Local Legends

    - Danny Cowan
  •  In Honolulu, it's said that looking into the eyes of the Night Marchers, warriors who used to protect ancient Hawaii, will lead to certain death. Tales of a maniacal Bunny Man haunting an overpass have been circulating in Fairfax County, Virginia since the '70s, and the story of the chupacabra spread from Puerto Rico to the southern United States in the 1990s, remaining a persistent legend to this day.

    In every city in the world there are hair-raising tales and legends, from haunted hotels where guests are awoken by mysterious knocking noises to terrifying creatures that residents swear they can see in dark wooded patches on the outskirts of town. These location-specific tales of terror are passed on from generation to generation, with new stories of haunted places and terrifying creatures cropping up all the time.

    For Game Career Guide's latest Game Design Challenge, our readers designed games based on local mysteries or urban legends. Here are our top picks!
