Spooks: Valve Calls For Halloween TF2 Submissions

More owls in games!
Valve are looking for community prop makers to furnish the shooter’s October update. From the Team Fortress 2 blog:

Scariness doesn’t just happen, people. It’s serious business. That’s why we’re giving you until October 1st to fill the Steam Workshop with horrifying Halloween-themed cosmetic items. If you’re not an item-making sort of person, you can still keep busy. Why not visit the workshop and rate other people’s Halloween-themed items? Rating terrifying items will also help you build up your resistance to being scared before we unleash this year’s Scream Fortress update.

Thanks to everyone who sent this link in. Now make us some hats.

    Loving that Pyro one, look forward to Halloween this year with NS2 coming and this!

    That’s one of the things I love about TF2. Its cartoonesque style combined with a relatively moddable engine allows for so much positively crazy shit to be put in that it makes Skyrim’s Construction Set look like a simple skin editor. And Valve’s attitude towards modders is just awesome.

    I NEED the Cortex Command.

    • Tuskin38 says:

      Cortex Command is coming to steam soon, maybe there will be a similar bonus if you buy it.

    A TF2 post gives me an excuse to shamelessly plug the RPS TF2 group.

    Our forum thread is here and Steam group here.

    We play regularly on Mondays and Thursdays. All are welcome to join.

    • mr.ioes says:

      For the people that want to seach for this group in steam: You have to use “RPSTF2”. “RPS Team Fortress 2” or “RPSandvich” won’t work for whatever reason.

    • JB says:

      I had a lot of fun on the server on Monday, looking forward to Thursday!

    So, R.P.S. is owned and operated by Valve then I’m assuming.

    • JB says:

      So, you’re trolling then I’m assuming.

    • Unaco says:

      Assumptions are the mother of all fuck ups, don’t you know. Also, no evidence of them being owned by Valve at Companies House.

      We do find out the Hivemind’s middle names though. Alec Ross Francis Meer… indeed.

      • Cooper says:

        That is the BEST REGISTERED ADDRESS ever.

        It seems like a result of the “Sir you are being hunted” british village name generator…

      • SominiTheCommenter says:

        Don’t forget Mr James Michael Rossignol.
        And finally written words that confirm that Quinns doesn’t exist anymore.

      • SominiTheCommenter says:

        Oh, and Eurogamer is a shareholder in the company.
        The plot thickens.

      • kud13 says:

        wow, that’s a lot of corp info available for free in the UK.

        in Canada, you need to pay for all of this.

      • Bipolar.Bear.Disorder says:

        So apparently, through PayPal, I can “Buy” the Hivemind…?

        Further investigation is necessary…
