October 2021 Halloween Condo Contest EXTENDED!

As we’ve done in the past, the theme for October’s contest is Halloween!

Feel free to interpret that how you like, whether that means making a haunted forest maze, a creepy basement, a chill Halloween party, or anything else, so long as it follows the rules and reasonably suits the theme.

The contest has been extended due to the Steam issues we were experiencing, and now will end on November 5th, 2021 at 11:59 PM CT.

Accessibility Suggestions

We’ve created a forum post asking the community for suggestions on how we can improve gameplay for players with certain conditions such as colorblindness, dyslexia, or anything else that might affect a players ability to use the standard presentation and controls of the game.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, and possible solutions on how to solve a particular issue, please check out the forum post here.

Appearance store my beloved…

So it looks like you’re ditching the Serious Sam-inspired look for Virgil.

You’re not getting rid of Virgil’s glasses right? They look so cool on him

and his overall look before
i do think the style and stuff looks better, i just miss his old look. if that makes sense

Awesome! Glad to see part of the dev team working constantly on migrating user information off of Steam, and acknowledging how important it is. The new appearance store is really cool too!

That NPC is looking real good! Are they a new NPC or replacing the current one? :thinking:

hope blender is treating lifeless well! appearance store looks sick as well

4 Likes

he still looks very serious sam-y

I would assume replacing. That’s an awfully small store to cram two NPCs into.

I sure hope not, he looks really cool with them

I’d love if his glasses changed depending on the season.

I, for some reason, have only just noticed the one central toilet paper roll. This picture was already hilarious because of the toilets facing each other but it now just became even funnier.
