It's a Pumpkin Carving Jamboree!

Happy Halloween and Spooky Month, everybody! This year, we're excited to step things up for our annual "Art Hallow's Eve" celebration. For those of you who are new here, every October we open up a Pumpkin Patch Gala, where you can use Mondrian's level editor, Mondrian Maker, to create a Jack O'Lantern level and compete for fun prizes! Everyone is invited to participate, whether you're using the Free Admission demo or you're a Lifetime Pass owner. The contest will run from now until November 1.

The rules are simple:

Never used Mondrian Maker before? No problem! We put together a video tutorial last year on how to make a Jack O'Lantern. Give it a few minutes to get up to speed.

You are of course welcome to submit other spooky levels to the Gala, but we will only be judging Jack O'Lanterns. Similarly, we will only be judging pumpkin-based Jack O'Lanterns as we lack the expertise to be critical of other squash, including but not limited to butternut, acorn, delicata, kabocha, and hubbard.

The prizes for the Gala include:

First Place:

  • Gold Thumbnail Frame and Gold Frame tag on Steam Workshop
  • 8400 Steam Points
  • Your pumpkin's inclusion in next year's in-game Pumpkin Patch exhibit
  • Your name immortalized on the Mondrian Museum site
  • Special Discord role

Second Place:

  • Silver Thumbnail Frame and Silver Frame tag on Steam Workshop
  • 3600 Steam Points
  • Your pumpkin's inclusion in next year's in-game Pumpkin Patch exhibit
  • Your name immortalized on the Mondrian Museum site
  • Special Discord role

Third Place:

  • Bronze Thumbnail Frame and Bronze Frame tag on Steam Workshop
  • 1200 Steam Points
  • Your pumpkin's inclusion in next year's in-game Pumpkin Patch exhibit
  • Your name immortalized on the Mondrian Museum site
  • Special Discord role

All entries will receive a custom Wooden frame, and an "Art Hallows Eve 2022" POAP token upon submission.

Surprise! Gem Hunt just got Spooky

Keen eyes may notice that Gem Hunt mode is now "Spooky Gem Hunt." For the duration of the Art Hallow's Eve event, this mode's "Double or Nothing" selection will read "Trick or Treat." When you play a level, you'll get one of a handful of bonuses or scares. These bonuses will REALLY help you rack up those Gems, and the scares... well, just get ready. We obviously won't spoil what they are, but we think you'll have a lot of fun with them! These bonuses, combined with the Double or Nothing nature of Gem Hunt, will lead to some SERIOUS Gem boosts, so if you've had your eye on that expensive wallpaper for your Museum, now's the time to go for it.

More Surprises

We plan to have even more surprises during the month, so expect to see some more Events and other updates during the month. We want to see everything spooky you can creatively muster, and to have an absolutely epic October.

Good luck, have fun, happy Art Hallow's Eve, and thank you for playing!
