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.

I'm making a game that when you start it you get sucked into your monitor and are taken to The TieDye Realm.


I'm miffed this isn't a link to this bad boy.

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


This is a good idea. I'm probably going to make something similar.

I'll be sure to bring back the blinking text if I get far enough to submit a gameprofile! Also working_man.gif and diablo_warrior.gif too.

(also fixed your link, your link was to the gameprofile management page not the profile itself)

For ye olde bad translation you could run your text through a translator a couple of times.
That concludes this segment of Altered's Tripcks
I have literally no idea what I'm going to do for this event.

Why did I join, I haven't played a single retro game in my life as far as I know. XD
Wait, why does the start time at the top of the page say 06/02/2017 07:00 PM when the start date is the 3rd?

Do I go by the timestamp in the top right or the one in the text body?
I'm pretty sure the time at the top is adjusted based on your computer's time zone (mine says 6:00 pm)

This seems as good an excuse as any to dig up the Gameboy-styled project I've been planning.

Yeah i thought i had it figured out but i actually don't know very much what i'll do heh. I'll just wing it.
can anyone even make not retro games on rm???
(other than rhyme
rhyme's games are the embodiment of modernity and beauty-beauty.)

(please don't answer seriously xox)
Sometimes I try to play non-retro games but after half an hour I start to black out and when I come to I'm suddenly halfway through a new Link to the Past randomizer seed and I have no recollection of where the last two hours went.


I suffered similar issues with my DS except after the black out I had booted up the NES emulator and was playing Rockman No Constancy dying to Crash Man. Again.

...the hell happened to my colour?
Ah, our artistically inclined staffer decided to take the reigns from me so that I didn't destroy everyone's ability to see before the event even begins. xp
Woooaaah so many participants O.O But when I last checked this page yesterday there's less than 10.....
I want to join too ; v; but I'm a bit busy so maybe I'll just play all these retro games when they're complete -w-
