The original Ghost Motel game was released here on Newgrounds on November 13th, 2002. When I realized that this year would be the 13th anniversary of the game, as well as a Friday the 13th, I couldn't resist trying my hand at a remake!
I wanted to add a bunch of features, and misjudged how long it would actually take to finish. I ended up working 20 hours straight and pulling an all nighter on the 12th. Right in the home stretch, the unstable game crumbled underneath me, with none of the SFX working, and the inability to pass the beginning of the game. I gave in to exhaustion and pulled the plug.
After a few days rest, I started rebuilding the majority of the code, learning from my mistakes the first time around. I also had the ability to add features that were originally cut! That extra week really did lead to a much better game.

I want to thank @JayWEccent for his amazing voice acting! It really shines in this project, and I am disappointed I cut a few of the characters and lines that he had also contributed to.
@Slaleky and I have worked on a few things together before, but this is the first to see the light of day. I am very grateful for how quickly he produced and handed over his Ghost Motel Remix! It sounds fantastic, and really drives home the overall atmosphere of the series.
I also want to thank @XwaynecoltX (one of the original creators) for being so cool about this! He was very supportive of the idea, and gave some great feedback. Thanks for creating such a fun world :)
For those of you that were/are interested in my Riddle School remake: I learned a lot on this project, and will definitely be applying those skills to finishing that game! I guess I have a thing for remakes... I am currently sitting on the game until it's 10 year anniversary in May 2016. But maybe I will get excited and release it sooner?
November has been an oddly productive month for me. I also released my first animation of the year, mocking Activision Blizzard's acquisition of King for $5.9 billion. I hope to produce more shorts like this with quick turnaround times in the future.
