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.

This clashes with the RMN review event. Same ending date...
Maybe some of these will come out in time for me to review them... hint hint.

So busy with reviews...

Today, I'll steal some ideas from old games. Then 10 hours of gammak. Probably no battles just a pure Adventure with a lone walker. Sprites in black brackets. No scrolling. A story stolen from Shakespeare and turned on its head. Custom graphics made within the time limit.
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.

It's ok man, you're doing god's work.
Question, for the 10 hour challenge, does all the progress on the game need to be done withhin 10 hours or only or only the actual game being made in engine?
Cap_H
Well, well, welp

I think that if you make graphics, scripts or music especially for it, it should within the limit too.
But collecting scripts and resources, thinking and planning in advance is ok.

Well, the underlying system... mostly works. It's bad, don't get me wrong, but it works.

...yes we have a resource section and yes it has some pretty neat stuff! There's bound to be more there. I just poked the most likely ones to see what was kicking.

Since it's a celebratory event I'm a-okay with people doing resource creation/etc ahead of time. Once it hits the engine, though, that's a no! Well, it's a yes now that the event has begun, but it would have been a no beforehand.

IMO they should be posted in the main post so people don't have to dig through the comments.

Cool, my graphics got mentioned.
And thanks for the pack, Despain. I already got it on Steam before but its better without a drm.
I have started!

Let us hope I can finish this abomination combining DnD and Opera.
