Hey, everyone! First of all, good luck on your own projects, I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
Now! As I've already mentioned, I'm going to be pretty busy this next month, and so, quite naturally, I've chosen an overly ambitious project. I haven't worked out the details, and this is all subject to change, but the idea is this: you're in a house (a spooooooky one), there's some mysterious creature in there with you, and you're trying to get out with limited resources. This will be difficult because of the maze-like quality of the house you're in, among other, undecided upon, but surely chilling obstacles. One thing I definitely want to do is have light play a prominent role - the house will be dark, and you'll have a flashlight, and that will do something. Something awesome!
Yup, that's pretty much it. Simple idea, I know, but I came up with it in about half an hour, and I'm hoping it'll be something I can actually complete. Fingers crossed!
I'll likely make another post later today to give an update on my progress.
