Short Nite 1 and the sequel Short Nite 2 were hugely successful and featured a bunch of underrated yet talented animators, and it seems like Epic is coming back with Shortnitemares, themed around spooky short films. Same song and dance as the two previous events: Animated shorts released in the aesthetic of a film festival. This event will take place in a player-built theater made in Creative mode, which shorts running from October 28 to November 1.
While we don’t have a full list of all 7 shorts yet, we have some important details:
- The new Kernel Poppy outfit, Slurpy Slush’em back bling and Butter Buddy emote will be available in the Item Shop the day before Shortnitemares, on October 27.
- You can watch the shorts in any language you like, complete with subtitles.
- Recording is not allowed, just like in a real film festival. We don’t know the consequence of uploading footage onto YouTube or Vimeo, but it will most likely end in a fine of some sort, which is why we won’t upload anything related to the event.
- Watch the shorts for 30 minutes and you will receive the Spray Matter spray.
