Unfortunately, I’m thinking of turning in my resignation form. At this rate, I would probably be able to release the game by Halloween to the public for ready game play, but I simply do not have the money for it. Since the world is going into an economic crisis right now, people will not be willing to buy unnecessary things, such as a game membership. I would ask for donations, but that would be too far out of the question. In my spare time, I will continue to work on bits and pieces of the game’s Flash, but I won’t be as dedicated as before. This decision is not permanent, I’m still deciding. If miraculously, my parents and relatives intend to back me up, I will return. But for now, production is at a standstill.
Just for fun, though….
I’ll make a poll. It won’t entirely affect my decision, for I still believe that I should wait until college, where I can find people who will share my ideas and help me with the actual game. I will also have a job to back me up.
So vote and comment.
Beware the undead beasts of the night….
The final drawings, edits and all, for the ghosts are done!
I plan to have about 9 different Eye Colors available. The Eye Color Choice affects your Free Item (All New Members) Color, too.
A Further Note:
I’ve noticed that a bunch of people have been asking me when they can beta test, and become moderators.
Let me make this clear.
There are Different stages of Testing.
- Alpha Testing
- Beta Testing
- Gamma Testing
- And for crying out loud, I could go through the rest of the Greek Alphabet now.
Beta Testing, I must add, is the most important stage of testing in the entire game, as it is when I release the game to the public for them to test of their own volition.
I plan to start Beta Testing by March 2009.
You do NOT need any requirements (Except a Username, a Password, and an Email) to sign up for Beta Testing.
As for the people who would like to become moderators, I am afraid that is a far…. far away dream.
In order to become a member of the working team (Group of people who work on actual game), you must be 13 or older, KNOW ME PERSONALLY IN REAL LIFE, and live in Silicon Valley, California.
In order to become a moderator, you must be 15 or older, and you must live in the Silicon Valley region of California.
However, I will make some exceptions for moderators, including some members of the BEAST and Teh Jungle Bribble Chats.
Anyways, that’s all for now!

Heads Up People! Something really awesome is flying your way:
And here it is! -smack- Ouch.
Anyways, I’ve finally taught myself sufficient Actionscript (for now) to begin working on the Flash for Rooms. =]
Also, I’ve decided what the Free Item for Testers will be. (Note: It will be a Item for the Head/Face. I can’t decide which I should choose.)
So, You can Help Decide!
May you be safe from Undead today!
Once I’ve decided, I will give you a sketch of what the item will look like!
I had break the whole week, so I took some time for a personal vacation and drawing.
I’m really focusing my attention on Flash, considering the fact that I had no clue absolutely whatsoever about what to do.
Luckily, some lightbulb in my head turned on, and I’m rolling along faster than ever before.
I have finals in about 2 weeks, perfect timing. xO
Here’s a Sneak Peek at the Flash Buttons and Stuff I’m working On.
I need your support, so please tell your friends, online and in real life, about the new game I’m creating!
Information about Testing the Game
If there’s anything I’m worried about, it’s getting through the Testing of the Game.
Since it’s 100% Flash, I’m going to have a huge amount of SWF Files to sort through for bugs. A single error in the Flash could cause it to completely fail.
I can’t really say anything about Testing yet, because I need to do the following:
- Complete All Room Drawings
- Redo the Ghost Drawings
- Finish Interface and Flash Work
- Finish work on Avatars
There’s a bunch of testing to do, but release for the public to test isn’t until Beta Testing.
I have singled out kids to test it for me already, and only a few people from The Jungle Chat will be lucky enough to test the game at first.
Anyways…. Have fun for Now! Keep Coming Back.
Beware of the Undead! (And the Other Creatures of the Night. ;])

Just because I haven’t posted or been on the chatroom for a couple days doesn’t mean I’m dead.
I’ve been extremely busy, with school (a 3 page Latin Essay), and a bunch of other stuff, including the new web site and Flash.
Things are moving pretty quickly, and I hope to release the game to the public, next year on Halloweeennnn…. (or maybe a bit earlier.)
Beta Testing, however, will start much earlier, hopefully by the start of the new year, or a couple of months into the new year.
I’ve got a bunch of cool secrets I’m not going to tell you, because it won’t be any fun if you don’t get to see it as a surprise.
Watch out for the Wandering Ghosts…….

Hey Everybody, jT Here.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been busy with Homework and all. xP
But I’ve also been working on a lot of the rooms.
Here’s a list of some of the rooms I’ve finished basic sketches of:
The Tower (Numero Uno xP)
This list will keep getting bigger.
For now, I’ll leave you with a sneak peek at one of the rooms.
Guess which one it is!
Comment! I need FeedBack! (But Don’t get Mauled by Zombies, k?)

This is gonna be one of those big crucial moments where you get to vote for a big aspect in the game!
I’ve been thinking a bit, and it would be pretty cool to have a detective agency or some Secret Service (oooooh……) for ghosts to join!
Here’s my idea, somewhat:
- There will be 3 Main Leaders of the Secret Service, all Ghosts (Only 2 will be Revealed, 1 will remain a Complete Mystery)
- The Secret Service Ghosts will get special privileges and stuff for the Story Arcs (such as the Skeleton Wars)
- They can report people, but that’s not that great. xP Is it?
- The SS Ghosts get Special Clothing, plus some cool Items (Gadgets) that you can Actually Wear! (Ideas So Far: Ray Gun, Walkie Talkie Phone?, Special Watch, Special Laser Pen that can Write on the Island Mist)
So, Please Vote Here If you Want there to be a Secret Service:
