The Spookening is a 3D scare ‘em up game à la Tim Burton for iOS and android, released in the end of March 2013.
You die every night and spawn as a ghost trying to resurrect. Scare villagers out of their wits and grab their soul power during the midnight hour in order to resurrect!

The inspiration for this game actually came from Pac Man. I was thinking about a game where you play the ghosts instead of Pac Man himself. This idea evolved into something quite interesting as the team discussed the concept further. Many players compare the game to a brain child of Tim Burton. Something I take as a huge compliment!
Graphically though I looked more at Moebius drawings actually. But I guess my inspiration from Tim Burton shines through anyway.
The project started in the late summer of 2012 as an in house project at Modesty. We were 5 guys working during the fall and winter on this using our own game engine that we call "Gear".
