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...

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:

Retro Games

- 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.

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:

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.

can't make a bad game if you don't finish any games

...\n works for me. Did you hack it away?
Nope! It was in the script itself, I'll post what I replaced with what when I get home because there was no reference to $game_party at all in it, just $game_actors and using the ID as the key with a sanity check on negative values. Something like

  actor = n > 0 ? $game_actors[n] : nil
  actor ? : ""

or something like that in Window_Message.

e: there is no Game_Message! maybe... I was the demon all along!
I'm totally making a game page for my submission.

After the event. I might need an extra day or two to add some new features (potential new game plus, simple alchemy system, etc). But overall, I think the game is pretty damn solid and beautiful so far. :D
I gave up, again. XD

Don't worry, me too!!
But overall, I think the game is pretty damn solid and beautiful so far. :D

Good for you... I don't know if my game is that solid to be worth playing... (ToT)
Anyway i'm mapping a dungeon and i found out that it's pretty hard and time-taking :(
*brain explodes*
I'm making an RPG in SMBX. It didn't start out that way. It just kind of happened xD
@Infection: Let's smoke that bacon, brother! Also; thank you kindly!

I'm not sure if I'll be able to have time to make a game page before deadline, but I certainly will after the event. I've come up with some (IMO) insane ideas for both the game's mechanic and plot. Out of Control (possible title) is going to be my main project from now on.

Here's my current progress:
- 9 full tracks have been composed.
- Telportation system has been implemented.
- 30+ maps are more or less finished (at least for now).
- Small intro/arrival at mansion scene is pretty much finished.
- Lots of planning and outlining has been done.
- A BUNCH of graphics have been made.
- Most of the transfer events have been implemented.

This game is going to be awesome, or at least, I want it to be. This means that I'm probably definitely not going to finish the entire game for the event. However, in order to compensate, I'm going to create a specific jam build that revolves around a quest related to RMN's birthday (and Mr. Anderson himself).

All I can say is that the cake is most certainly not going to be a lie.

I updated the Dark Corridor a tad.

EDIT: Updated my team name into something more relevant. xD
Aaaand Grad Ceremony and potential job interview / reassurances about a temporary move to another city for said job are done...

Back to work! Let's see if I can make 2 more dungeon maps today, and close out the Canyon of Famine dungeon (Minus balance testing and the boss)

Floor number 2 of said canyon
the world ends in whatever my makerscore currently is
Oooooo, expansive. Looks fun to explore!
Jack of Most Trades
hey look a title screen

And @Aegix_Drakan that map is huge! How many floors does this dungeon have? D:
the world ends in whatever my makerscore currently is
I love that mjshi :D
They told me I was mad when I said I was going to create a spidertable. Who’s laughing now!!!
First level mapped, second level graphics'd! That leaves mapping second level, graphicsing third level and hub (if I have time for a hub), and eventing.

Plus a title screen and faceset if time permits.
And @Aegix_Drakan that map is huge! How many floors does this dungeon have? D:

5 floors to each dungeon, but there are always shortcuts you can open up.

For example, on floor 2 you can see a faded out box and bridge near the middle of the screen. If you examine the box (with a little blippy icon on it), you will use the tools inside to build a "bridge" that will allow you to skip like 70% of that floor next time you come into that dungeon.
Nice retro shots, guys! I'm currently writing a list of potential of rooms/areas for the mansion in OoC. Trying to be a tad creative with some of these. Here they are:
- Dining Hall
- Mr. A’s Bedroom
- Christmas Tree Fanatic Bedroom
- Kitchen
- Library
- Storage/Stock/Supply Room
- Courtyard
- Guest Room(s)
- Bathroom
- Dance Hall
- Game Room
- Minibar
- Laundry Room
- Anteater Room?
- Study
- Sitting/Chill Room
- Parlor/Reception Room
- Master Bedroom
- Master Wardrobe
- Master Kitchen
- Master Bathroom
- Master Chill Room
- Master Bar
- Balcony
- Red Room
- Shame Room
- Art Room
- Lounge
- Hidden Rooms
- Attic
- Spanking Room
- Room of Time (lots of clocks)
- Jail
- Nag Room
- Beer Room
- Butler’s Room
- Master Butler’s Room
- Room of Reflections/Mirror Room
- The Forbidden Room
- Cold Chamber
- Chapel
- Chamber of Secrets
- Fartchamber

Feedback would be appreciated.
I do believe Chamber of Secrets and Fartchamber should be in fact the same room.
Uh... wow, I somehow managed to get practically nothing done so far. There's no way I can finish the project now. WELP
I wasn't even trying to procrastinate. It just comes naturally now, I guess :v

- - -

Now that i realized that i won't have time to have battles in my game i don't know what else to put in it to make it worth anyone's time. Good writing it won't have because i'm not a writer.

My game's intro cutscene is longer than metal gear 4's intro ;_;

well that turned around quickly o_o
I do believe Chamber of Secrets and Fartchamber should be in fact the same room.

An economical idea indeed! I'll put it into consideration.

@turkeyDawg. Then shelf what you've got and make a ten hour challenge game.
