Ahoy there, fellow Newgrounds peeps!

I'm excited to announce that we've just submitted our first game to Steam! The game is called GRAVE CHASE and it's now up for voting on Steam Greenlight! I know... great timing 'n all, what with Valve just announcing that their Greenlight program will be replaced in the coming months, but with any luck, we'll be able to get our game greenlit before that happens. So with that in mind, if you're on Steam, Please take a moment to vote for us!

Here's the GRAVE CHASE trailer:

Pretty spooky, huh? Alrighty, now for some details about the game itself:

GRAVE CHASE is a retro-inspired 2D horror action-adventure game in which a brother & sister must survive the month of October in the deadly graveyard of a ghoulish groundskeeper.

The Groundskeeper always keeps his graveyard full. Not by having clients, but by killing all the people in town and throwing their body parts into open graves! One night, however, he murdered the parents of two kids who saw the whole awful act take place. Now, they've sworn to get revenge using science... and shovels! Together, these siblings hatched a plan to go into the graveyard, dig up body parts, and use science to turn them into an army of monsters to tear the Groundskeeper limb from limb.

It's not going to be easy, however, for the Groundskeeper patrols the graveyard constantly with his lantern, searching for trespassers whom he can relentlessly chop into pieces with his meat cleaver. As they traverse his nightmarish graveyard, the siblings will also have to use their shovels to battle hordes of the undead, skeletons, blobs, axe-wielding psychopaths, ghosts, mummies, and much more. Hey, it's a graveyard; who else would you expect to be hanging around there late at night?

It's a spooktacular game of ever-increasing difficulty, all culminating on Halloween!

Please vote for Grave Chase on Steam Greenlight!

GRAVE CHASE features old school 2D pixel art, a steady flow of spooky new enemies throughout the game, 31 stages of increasing difficulty, 4 additional unlockable game modes for even more replay value, over 50 achievement medals , special power-ups, an all original soundtrack, windowed or fullscreen play, gamepad support, and you can choose to play as the girl or boy while the other stays home and builds monsters using the body parts you collect.

We've been working nonstop on this passion project and I really hope you like what you see. Again, if you're interested in playing GRAVE CHASE, please take a moment to vote for it on Steam Greenlight. Thanks!

Vote for Grave Chase on Steam Greenlight!

Now, I feel like playing Zombies Ate My Neighbors again. Too bad I no longer have a friend from school to team up with me. :(

On the other hand, this looks interesting, and would make for a great game to play in October. I voted for it on Greenlight, liked the YT video, commented on this post, picked my nose, and, hopefully, I'll remember to buy a copy when it's officially available. Far more likely, I'll forget and the discovery queue will be my eventual reminder.

Mockery responds:

Zombies Ate My Neighbors was a big influence on the aesthetics of Grave Chase, actually! And yeah, the plan was for this to be a game that people would want to play in October every year to help get 'em in the Halloween spirit. Thanks for the vote!
