Trick or Traitor is an excellent GCC submission.

Trick or Traitor is an excellent GCC submission.

Our first Game Creation Challenge has come to an end, and we’re thrilled to announce the winner and finalists of this amazingly successful contest. We were blown away by the number of high-quality entries we received, and had a blast playing through all of your submissions. (Personal note: I think you all shaved 10 years off my life with those jumpscares!)

Of course, there can only be one official winner, and it was an extremely tough choice. Our panel of judges looked at technical achievements, writing, atmosphere and scare-factor to come up with the spookiest game on ROBLOX. So, without further ado, we’re excited to bring you the winner of the first Game Creation Challenge: Scare us Silly.

Confined, a Game of Death and Shadows

Built by Legoman654, and coded by tyridge77 and Stroudie

Confined blew us away from the very start. The presentation value, atmosphere, and sound made it one of the scariest submissions of the bunch, and certainly the most polished. Confined dances the line between psychological horror and genuine danger. It feels unique not just as a ROBLOX game, but as a nail-biting horror game. Stroudie even flexed his voice acting muscles to provide the dialogue. Top-notch game development from the entire team. Congratulations you guys, you earned the win!

There were a ton of amazing games entered into the Game Creation Challenge, and we’ve got 12 finalists that will also receive a special Game Creation Challenge hat and be featured in our live programming during the month as well as the official GCC Page. The 12 finalist games our judges loved are (in no particular order):

We highly encourage you to play all of these games; they’re each very different, and all of them are incredible.

Congratulations to all of our finalists, and to everyone who entered. There were so many great entries that even narrowing it down to 13 was very difficult! ROBLOX developers are a talented group of people, and we hope to make the next Game Creation Challenge bigger, better, and more rewarding for all of you.
