On October 27th, 2011, Juggernaut Games introduced themselves into Home with the release of the Cutteridge Estate. In the past, Home users have begged for a space that evolves over time and Juggernaut has answered the call by updating the space a few times over the past year.

Cutteridge  is more than  a haunted house, it is a very unique space that is full of surprises and history. I’ll never forget the first time I heard a lady crying.. I passed it off as ambiance, then I saw her. The Crying Lady was sitting  on a bench facing the lighthouse. I felt sorry for her, but as I approached, she dissipated. Later I found her in a new location, at this point I wanted to learn everything about this space.

 

 

The Crying lady is only one aspect of the space, there are several other things that make it special. After my first visit to the space, I left with so many unanswered questions.

Who is the Crying Lady? Why is she so sad?

Did that Scarecrow move?

What is that eerie glowing light?

Where does that hole lead?

I was envious when Stevev363 asked George from Juggernaut, why the crying lady was so sad.

George: I’m not sure why she’s crying. She always vanishes before I can get close enough to ask her. Maybe she’s upset because her soul is trapped in the eternal void of Cutteridge Estate? The scarecrow is a mystery… but I’m pretty sure a creepy groundskeeper is involved somehow. There’s definitely a story unfolding in Cutteridge. It’s exciting to see the community starting to connect some of the puzzle pieces.

 

His answer left me asking more questions… but the wheels started turning in my head and I came up with an idea to let YOU create the history of The Cutteridge Estate and its occupants. But I needed to wait for the perfect time. With October quickly approaching, I believe the time has come.

Have you ever wondered about the history of Cutteridge? Now is the time to share your ideas.

"Unlocks the Cutteridge Ghost Stories event in Cutteridge Estate" <---- what is this?  I guess you would have to own the estate in order to unlock the event, right?  Or do you get the estate as well?  I just want to be clear about this because I dont own the estate.

To answer your question, the Cutteridge Estate is not included. But if your looking to buy a new estate, the Cutteridge is definitely one to look into. 

 

If you win the Ghost Stories bundle, you will still be able to play the minigames and earn prizes by visiting a friends Cutteridge Estate.

These items will not be exclusive to this contest, but it's not everyday you get to win things instead of buy them. Also, you will miss out on the chance of having your story published in the space.

So, I guess the cat is out of the bag.

Ghost Story Events, furniture, companions, clothing.

There is nothing on the Blog about this.

When is this stuff going to be available for purchase? Any prices set yet?
