Spoiler tags for Clock Tower, a game that was released in 1997? Are you for real? What's next? Requesting spoiler tags when someone mentions that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's father? Give it a rest. While we're at it; Aeris dies, Spike Spiegal dies, and Jar Jar lives.

Back on topic, Inkyblackandred if you're serious about making a scary story, I'd suggest you read this article on designing scary games:

I don't really care about the game, but you should put at least the Spike-part of your message in spoilers, as it is a classicer most will watch when they're new to Anime - and it is not the first series you usually come across.

Again, respect is to cater to other people's sensibilities. There's no point in arguing whether or it's an actual spoiler when some people clearly took offense. It certainly doesn't help you make any friends. The button's there for a reason.

But the moral of the story is; if you do use spoiler tags you may just have a shot at becoming the next presidente of Nicaragua.

The one thing i know scares the crap out of me, is when i'm really deep in concentration. Like on a story line because it's really intresting, and has vivid detail (helps if it's bruital and makeing me nausiouse) and then out of no where there is something that pops up. It helps if the thing looks scary and makes a screaming noise, however if it pops up out of nowhere i'm scared nonetheless even if it is a person trying to help.

WOW I have gotten alot of good advice here,i feel so bad i stopped visting the forums but alot of stuff happened these last 2 years,I`ll have you know i did finish the first scenario of the novel HOWEVER it never got made since i was having self esteem issues with my art also back then i had`nt decided my career path yet (now i did and i really wanna work with concept design) so in other words i was forced to drop everything and put myself on a harsh self teaching lesson where i get frustrated alot and try my hardest to learn how to draw I even enorlled myself in drawing classes this year so i could learn how to properly draw and while im doing those im gonna be studiyng art on my own.Well needless to say the PC on which i had written the script "fried out" june last year so i had to get a new (better) PC so i completley lost a script that took me 3 whole months to write ;----;,basically what i came here to do was thank you guys for all the advice i did read some of the earlier posts and they helped me alot,plus i had my Highschool Drama Teacher always review my stuff it was a lot of help since VN do have that theatrical aspect of it and he taught me alot about how to write something compelling and suspensefull. In the end the amazing Timetravel-Supernatural-Slasher-Horror/suspense did`nt gate made ;---; maybe i`ll try re-working it later.

I'm also a fan of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. Parts of this story (I didn't watch the anime, so I'll just talk about the manga) that scared me the most was the last scene in Watanagashi where or in Meakashi That part was real scary, because I didn't know if it was Oyashiro sama, or something that could kill Shion.(Hands are always scary) So I think atmosphere and situations play an important role, especially if you don't know who's going to die when.
