Every year, leading up to Halloween, we invite everyone to join us for some spooky fun! 

Even if you don't celebrate Halloween specifically, we invite you to join with your photos, stories and machinimas in the dark spirit of the macabre, or the lighters side of spooky with trick or treats. 


HOW TO JOIN

It is EASY!  Create some photos, a short story, or a short machinima and come back to this forum to let us know about it. 

for PHOTOS - upload them to our Darkside Photo Gallery HERE first becuase we will share the link to this album on our social media channels so people can see your creations. THEN - share your photos here.

  • to share your photo in this thread - right click on the image from the gallery, click on "copy image URL" , then come to this forum thread. In the toolbar you see a little blue square which is a photograph - click on that and paste in the image url that you saved.
  • If you are having trouble saving photos - watch out for this problem - if you try to upload the game photos directly with all of the numbers and dashes it won't work - try renaming your photos first with no dashes or characters - just numbers and letters

for STORIES - create your story slides and upload it to any place of your choosing (a blog, tumblr, facebook etc), then post a link here with your cover page, advertisement poster, or a few teaser images. Alternatively you can create a separate album here in our gallery to host your story. 

for MACHINIMA - once your machinima is ready then share the link here with us. One of us will come along and repost it as an embedded youtube video. All you have to do is copy and past the url - you DO NOT need to do anything to create a link - just simply paste the url into the reply box.  

  • additional recommendations for machinima makers - we encourage that you take a few good screenshots or other images to represent your machinima and share them in our gallery (optional)

DEADLINE - Saturday, October 31st - Halloween night
