I love horror games with a sense of humor. Writing was really fun and cute.
Home on Prom Night
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
It's 198X, and Dawn has been rejected by her more popular friends, leaving her home alone and missing her prom. As far as she's concerned, that's the worst thing to happen to anyone tonight. If only she was right.
Her friends' post-prom partying has just been interrupted by a serial killer, and now there's a massacre happening down at the old lover's lane. Teenage blood is spilling. Limbs are flying. The town's dark past is coming back with a vengeance. And Dawn is oblivious to all of it. She's only interested in what horror movie to watch next, not the one unspooling down the road...
Home on Prom Night is a short parody of '80s slasher movie tropes, seen through the eyes of someone whose only concept of a knife in the back is her friends signing up for camp counsellor jobs without her.
With all original pixel art and sound effects.

The game freezes whenever I get to the part where I'm supposed to lock the door, is there a way to fix that?
Sorry about that! Could you give me some more information? What's your system, and what exactly happens?
I'm running the game on windows, and after the part of the game where I order the food from the phone, my character goes to the center of the room, and the game becomes unresponsive to any input.
Which version of Windows are you on? Win11 has had some reported problems with RPG Maker games, which will hopefully be temporary. It sounds like it's struggling to load, but I'm not sure what the issue is. I would suggest redownloading and seeing if it sorts itself out.
Love the game, I got the secret ending totally hilarious and worth the effort. I love the 80s setting and tropes the game had me smiling the entire time. Really amazing job the art is beautiful and the story is well told.
HOW DO I GET SECRET ENDING CRI
I think the first video shared in the comments has the answer!
Never miss an opportunity to keep things clean.

Well this definitely gave me some good laughs. Not every spooky game has to be super serious. I love the attention to detail, the little easter eggs around the room and the way the narrative keeps playing a bit with your expectation. It's all quite funny!
I do find the main character kind of obnoxious, but I have a feeling that is part of the joke. Either way, I enjoyed myself playing it. A good time was had!
Thanks for playing! With the main character, I wanted to flip the typical slasher survivor girl personality on its head, so I was indeed aiming for slobby and abrasive!
very cool game to check out! I really enjoyed the secret ending

I see someone in the window...
Love the game! Tho I found a tiny bug :(. In my second run, I was trying to see if I can get Dawn to not lock her door and then I accidentally got her stuck behind her table with the hair bows. She wasn't moving around it to complete the action and I couldn't control her afterwards. Besides that, I had a good time playing it!!!
Thank you, I'm glad you liked it! Did you get stuck while she was moving across the room? I appreciate the feedback.
It's UNBELIEVABLE how many degrees of sass and ignorance are in this game!Side note, FOUND THE SECRET ENDING! Totally worth it.
