Halloween may have come and gone for 2018, but that apparently won’t stop this month’s MAGS from tasking aspiring adventure game creators from coming up with something featuring, well, a scarecrow. Perhaps even an iteration of the same-named Batman villain? Who knows. Also, it doesn’t have to be a game set strictly in the horror genre, so long as it features something that will scare crows.
But… all that’s just for MAGS November. What about MAGS October? It might not have yielded many games, but you know, quality over… size? Right. Something like that. Now get to clicking and playing and… pointing? Maybe not in that order.
