Spookyfest - Community Infection Modes

By -

Hey everyone! Uny here. I don't know about you, but Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays. Right now, I'm dressed up as Dexter and writing about some incredible Forge creations made by you, the community.

In a Community Update quite some time ago, we featured ArturBloodshot's scary Infection mode – The Cellar. Since then, he's been one of our go-to sources for scary Forge minigames, and has shown Ske7ch, Grim, and me some great creations. Recently, he compiled a list of his favorite frightening Infection modes and shared them with us, and we in turn wanted to share it with all of you for Halloween. If you feel like playing some nerve-racking custom games on this All Hallows' Eve, look no further than this list below.

Also, don't forget that there's a Community Playdate today at 4PM PT / 7PM ET in the Infection playlist. This time, we'll be streaming the entire playdate on and hope to see you online!

Haunted House by Light Switch57 – Map & Mode

IIf you’re a fan of Haunted Houses, this one is for you. A clever use of scripting makes this walkthrough experience worth your while.
