Description

Holy hello! It's been 10 years already of the current site being up and around so it's time to celebrate!


Wow, 10 years... A lot of us weren't here ten years ago (myself included) and in that time we've seen so many faces come and go. So much talent, drive, initiative and invention. An incredible amount of dreams coming true, people pulling through and crafting, creation and positivity.

We've all grown as people, all helped craft a community where being open and friendly is the goal, and shared our hopes and dreams with each other, no matter where we come from or how old we are. And some of us are pretty damn old. ;p

Which brings us to the crux of this event - RMN is getting old, so let's reflect a while on where we came from and what inspired us to become game developers in the first place - whether it be hobbyist, professional or somewhere in-between. It's time to put on those nostalgia glasses and go back to where it all began. It's time to go...



A I M
The aim of this event is to create a simple retro-styled game over 10 days in celebration of RMN's 10th birthday!

Retro-styled can include either the gameplay, sound/music design, graphics or plot/story design. There are many games out there that count as retro, in different genres and with different visuals, so don't think you need to make a FF1 look-alike in order to hit the theme. Early Sonic, Mario, Leisure Suit Larry, Tetris, Zelda, Contra, Kirby, Megaman, Donkey Kong, Pong, Bomberman, Castlevania, Carmen Sandiago, Street Fighter, Alex the Kidd, Pacman... these are all games that hit the mark for retro. So don't feel as though you're limited to just jRPGs in this.

Here's a few sites where you can get a good idea of what Retro may mean:

R U L E S
- You may start making your game on Saturday 3rd of June.
- Games must be completed before Monday the 12th of June.
- You may start collecting ideas, graphics, etc before the starting date, but no actually starting the game itself (in engine).
- Open to any engine, genre, etc as long as it abides by site rules.
- You may create a game page for the game, but to submit you will need to upload the file itself to the event page. Check FAQ for a how-to guide on submitting to the event.
- The game must abide by the theme of the event.

B O N U S
If you'd like to, there's a bonus challenge of making a game in 10 hours instead of 10 days. What this means is you must create the game within 10 hours over the course of the 10 day period, but that you can only use 10 hours of game development to make the game in. Again, it should abide by the theme of the event, and site rules regarding games. If you do take part in this challenge, make sure to note in the title of your game download that it's a 10 hour game by using the 10H tag.


Here's a Playlist of the gamepages that have been created for games from this event: https://rpgmaker.net/users/Liberty/playlists/72180/


F A Q
Only one gam?
Nope! You can go for more than one game, or be part of a team in one game and make your own personal game too. Hell, make a 10 day game and a 10 hour game! Go for gold!


How does resource???


How do I submit my game to the event?
Make sure that you have the game folder compressed in some way. You can do this a few ways. If the engine you use has an auto-compiler, that is one way. If it does not, download a free program like 7zip and right-mouse click on the folder the game is in, choosing the Compress Folder/Create Self-Extractor choice.

Ultimately you need a single file that holds all of your game's data, resources and misc to upload. Then on this page hit Submit in the top-right. Choose Browse to find your file and then submit it for upload. Leave the page open until it redirects to another page. Your game is now accepted to this event.

*Uses Scan...Cannot Scan Bosses!*

This is gonna be fun. Hehehe. Oh should we put a thing with our game describing what retro-ness/influences it has or where it is from? Some retro games were quite complex and influences from it may not register as being retro to some people.
tfw you could do a low-poly Unity project and bill it as PS1~PS2 era game and it'd still be "retro" according to a lot of folks these days...

Hmmmm... I might try to do something for this, but I have no idea what all I could really get done in 10 days. I know I joked in the Poll thread about doing a jerky PC-88/98 game, but since I don't have any real personal experience with those kinds of games, I'll probably stick with something more SNES/Genesis-styled (or maybe NES/GBC). Kinda thinking about doing a "bishoujou platformer" ala Kendo Rage, Alisia Dragoon, Valis series, etc.

also lmao I was not expecting to see Leisure Suit Larry mentioned up there

If you'd like, sure, but I won't make it a rule. The aim of the game is to have fun.

Just like the aim of this event page is to burn out peoples' eyes. Yikes! ;p
This sounds like fun,I finished a contest a week ago so I'm a little gamemaking tired,but I'll give this a try.:D
Happy birthday rmn!

Ok, I'm up for the extra
C H A L L E N G E.

Hm, I need to decide if I want to go PC retro or NES or something like Atari. I would be able to work with Ascii graphics taking the pc route, but I find it little boring.
Luckily, I'will be travelling for three hours today. It may be enough to come up with something.

Oh, so retro won, huh?

I'm totally gonna do the extra challenge. I wanna see if I can make a quick little sidescroller.

Also that font is hideous.

I'll be taking all ten days, because there's no way I can do what I want to do in 10 hours XD;;;;;;;;;;;;;

I have a potentially dumb idea for this (is there any other kind?) and I have no idea how far I'll get with it!
So just to be clear... This is a team event? Or can we do Solo Entries?

Well, most all the teams that have entered are solo at the moment...

Me too!!! >u<
Although i also thought of making a normal game with retro graphics... I know I was completely against it at first but now I think that maybe it can be fun, since it's something i never tried :)
The question is if I will make it... Afterall i already partecipated some events but never managed to end my entries till the time limit ToT
Hopefully this time 10 days are enough...

Ps: is something like this also retro?

Sorry for the ignorance(O//-//O)... But i want to be sure

I have a large well of systems and resources to draw on for a quick game. Count me in! (until reality hits, probably by the evening of June 3rd)
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

So we're doing a retro challenge because 10 years is old? Final Fantasy XII came out 11 years ago, so that's an older-than-average retro game, right? Most submissions should try to look a little better than that.
