So who's up for this

I was thinking about this sites closure and decided that the most important thing about RMN for me was how it consistently got me up off my ass to actually make and release games. Whether for Action 52 or Shinan's contest or the various seasonal gamemaking contests I pretty consistently had a blast in trying to put together and release something under a deadline while also seeing what the other cool_dudes taking part would come up with. I think even beyond forumchats and recieving crits etc this kind of activity was what attracted me most to the site and was actually what made me join in the first place! And I thought it would be a fitting farewell kinda to use the forums closure as yet another excuse to hunker down and be productive.

So yeah if anyone is interested the aim is to release a full game before the forum implodes. This gives you a month!! to get something out. so you have until april 2.

If anyone's interested in judging what gets released etc then we can make an actual contest out of this sucker. It's not an official contest or whatever. You can use any engine or materials etc so 'go ape' as they say.

Themes are optional but in case you need one I would suggest: RAD DOGS

The Site Isn't Closing Down
...however the the sentiment of completing games is a good one. Working against a deadline with other chaps in a "last gasp" game drive whilst sharing crits and encouragement is something worth doing, I believe.

So I am making an official event out of this sucker.

Rules
* Complete a game by April 2nd 16th
* Use a gameprofile download as your entry
* It doesn't have to be a new game - you can take one of your existing projects and finish it off

Theme
* RAD DOGS
* Theme is optional

Minutiae
* We don't have judges or a contest or anything, but if you want to be a judge let me know and I can add you!
* Participants who submit a completed game will get a nifty Rad Dog achievement (makerscore!!)

Let's hunker down and be productive! I plan on finishing off Generica: The Next Generation for this.
I apologize in advance for the brain cells RtT is going to kill.

We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born.

Can't you set the deadline a little bit up? :-/
2 weeks are not enough time for me...

And what means "Rad"?

I was wondering about that too. The original idea catmitts gave allowed for about a month. This is 2 weeks. Should I change the end date to be a month from today, or leave it at April 2nd?
no it was a what the heck as in i should do this anyway! ya... ya did good kid *gruff snake plissken voice*

I'm totally judging the muffin top deacon's avatar is rocking
A contest with no winner sucks! We need judges now!
This is not a contest.

just releasing something until a deadline is not enough motivation i guess. but if you can WIN this whole thing... :-D
This is not a contest.

There's no point comparing games just because they were finished at the same date. You can have a game you start making now, and another one someone's been working on for 5 years. How would you judge it? How can you compare games that are not made within the same theme, within the same rules?

I don't think there's anything to judge. This is just an event to motivate people to finish games.
lame

that concept would not motivate anybody... it's the same as RSD and that one got cancelled for good reason.
