Happy birthday Halloween Forever! v. 1.105 now live


Nearly a year ago today Halloween Forever crawled it's way out of Early Access and onto Steam. I'm happy to share a new update today that I hope addresses some issues that have come up over the past few months and makes the overall quality of the game experience better. Some notes about what's new:



- Added some substantially overhauled gamepad and keyboard manager (thank you Jakylgamer). No more gamepad shutting off keyboard inputs, game crashes on gamepad unplugging, and overall broader gamepad support. I've been able to test using an xbox 360, gravis gamepad pro, and ibuffalo snes/sfc format usb controller and they each work. Please take a look at the Control Config menu too so you can map the attack and jump buttons to your preference. Because of how Gamemaker interprets different manufacturer gamepads, the ABXY (or similar) buttons may appear ordered differently. These are mappable though.

- Added a 99 Lives toggle in the Config menu. Achievements are disabled while this is enabled. 99 Lives must be set per run and doesn't save on game restarts. I wanted it to be a manual opt in per run so people don't accidentally miss an achievement, but if it seems important to save this setting I can change it.

- Keyboard and gamepad can navigate menus! You might have noticed the severed Pumpkin Man hand hovering in menus. Mouse clicks still work if you don't wish to use the button controls.

- Config has a Fullscreen toggle! This doesn't require restarting the game.

No new content this time around but soon or after Halloween I'm aiming to add a few new playable characters. A playable Chainsaw Maniac and Grizzledude at least. Also maybe keep an eye out for some easter eggs that may tease some interesting things about the new game I'm working on, Abyxsis!

Thanks again everyone. I'll be keeping an eye on the forums if issues arise. Wishing some of these features could have come sooner but also they'll be ready from day 1 in future games I make, so better late than never : ]

About This Game

Something mysterious is happening in the pumpkin patch this Halloween! You control Pumpkin Man, a humanoid pumpkin thing animated by occult forces on a quest to discover why things are so creepy. And you vomit candy corn.

Adventure through three weird, spooky worlds in search of your destiny. Meet chainsaw maniacs, undead sorcerers, spooky bats, and lots of skeletons on your way. Can you survive the horrors that await you within these spooky tombs?

I'm building Halloween Forever in Gamemaker. All artwork and animations were created using Photoshop. Halloween Forever supports play using both keyboard and Xbox 360 format usb gamepad.

Thanks again for checking out my game. I love Halloween and wish it could never end. Happy Halloween Forever!
