Halloween 2019

November 23, 2019

Nowadays, I put on a Halloween game every year, and 2019 was no exception (you can check out previous games by clicking on the Halloween tag). There’s obviously always some sort of horror theme, and this year I went loosely with sharks. The concept of the game was simple: a pirate ship had been wrecked and it was up to the survivors, floating on debris, to race to the shore. Unfortunately for them there were plenty of sharks about. Oh and the Kraken.

The game itself was surprisingly good, if I may say so! The mechanics functioned really well, it was a close game in the finish, and everyone seemed to have a good time. There was even talk of maybe developing it further and turning it into an actual game. Who knows – I’ve long wanted to publish a game. Pirates were knocked off their rafts and eaten by sharks and the Kraken took the ship’s boy. As usual, shown below is a collection of photos taken by the players, I hope the feel of the game comes across!

And of course it wouldn’t be Halloween without themed foods, so…

Halloween is really fun evening for us every night. This year it however came at a cost: painting all those sharks means that I’ve been going “Baby shark do-doo-do-doddo-do” a lot. Oh well. Do-doo-do-doddo-do.

  3. Awesome! Don’t know about Baby Shark, but I’d definitely have the Jaws theme on a loop in the background!

  4. Looks amazing – with the first and last photos being the real standouts πŸ™‚ I wouldn’t have been able to resist the Jaws theme tune (and I hope someone remembered to cry “Release the Kraken!” at the appropriate moment!)

    • Cheers Wudugast! Yes, Jaws theme it was and I’m fairly certain someone made the Kraken reference as well. Ah, geeks.

  5. I’m loving those sharks, especially the one in the first pic! You’ve done a great job on the painting front, and the print quality is still astounding. Also, the foods look properly disgusting!

    • Thanks, much appreciated! The printer can really knock out some stellar prints, just put in an order for another 2l of resin. Also looking at a filament printer for ships, terrain pieces etc – even those are getting pretty amazing in terms of quality.

    • Thanks IRO! I’ve developed something of a fanboyish approach to sharks recently πŸ˜€

        • Oh yeah. My sister lives in Western Australia and was on the beach once when a kid was attacked. Fortunately the kid survived.

    • Oooh, not a bad idea at all. In fact I’ve already been looking at a couple of mermaids and I do have some harpies for printing too. Thanks for the comment!

  10. Very impressive Mikko. The food alone was beautiful, and the game looked epic. Hope you publish it – in English – ac my Finnish is limited to profanity mostly!
