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.

@Make_it_MagiK: Oh, man, Tales of Phantasia. That was on the SNES, so, that... probably qualifies?
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.

SNES style is kinda just the baseline for RPG Maker. The rules don't define the term "retro," so I imagine the requirement is just that YOU believe what you're making is retro, but personally I would feel bad about just making a regular-ass-looking RPG Maker game for this event.
I'm going NES all the way, but I don't think SNES should be excluded, graphic-wise. Some of the young'uns around here think of Final Fantasy 4 and Secret of Mana the same way us mid-30'ers think of Ultima 1 and Bard's Tale.

Also, what will the achievements be? Make them point-friendly like the old, retro days. 50MS for participation and 100MS for winning (if there's judging).

That's what I thought too, since SNES belongs to retro too, right?

Maybe you're right since the SNES graphics are quite like the rpg maker 2000/2003 ones... But i think they are still retro, aren't they? Or maybe retro is more like this?

That's true... Honestly FFIV is for me already retro... I think it would be great if we could use SNES kind of graphics... It could be much easier (well at least for me personally): we could infact use the rpg maker 2003 graphics, couldn't we? Would that be counted as retro as well?

The real problem with this tileset is that Nintendo of America didn't censor the cross shaped graves!

BLEEDING BLOOD

I wasn't expecting this to be a team event. At this rate I wonder if anyone's actually going to make a team! I'll probably be getting a little help from my sister :D

Well, you're the original then! :P
I think I'll be making a Minimalist dungeon crawler with the black and white gameboy style tileset I still have.

I'm going to try to keep everything nice and simple and straightforward as possible.

I have a few good ideas already, can't wait to get started. :D

I'm working on a maze/fake 3d/doom type of first person with rpg elements and simple combat!
I'm making a game that when you start it you get sucked into your monitor and are taken to The TieDye Realm.
It's probably pretty easy to guess what I'm making.
