2021 Update: The festival returns!

The festival is back and the servers are online!
I've also worked on an update to the game for 2021. Here's a quick summary:

  • New scenery and places to place pumpkins.
  • A flashlight to use at night (press F).
  • A new pumpkin selection screen.
  • UI polish, such as a UI wiggle effect and scene transitions.
  • Alternate universes unlock automatically as they are needed.
  • Behind the scenes stuff, such as optimizing pumpkin file size, smoother pumpkin streaming, and other server-side work.

I also threw together a trailer in an hour last night... It actually took me a while to find a public domain recording of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the pumpkins for this year! Thanks everyone, for reading this, and helping decorate the festival :)

Also, I'll finish off this post few a cool pumpkins already submitted this year!

See you on Halloween!
