The 2011 RMN Summer Games is a game-making contest, the goal of which is to make a game within one month. A theme will be announced at the start of the contest to ensure equal footing and development time for all participants, but otherwise just have fun making games!

-The contest will begin on August 1st 12:00 AM GMT and run until August 31st 11:59 PM GMT. Entries must be completed during this time frame.
-You may work with a team of any size to make a game.
-Your game may be made in any engine and may be any genre, not just an RPG.

-You ought to have permission to use all art, music, or other content. Rips will be frowned upon. How the content was created does not matter so long as you have the rights to use it.
-The game should run on Windows XP or higher. The judges should not require any additional components to play your entry.
-Show good sportsmanlike conduct towards your competitors.
-Most important rule: Have fun!

-All games will be required to loosely incorporate the theme (TBA. The theme could be anything from a setting to an abstract concept.)
-Entries started before the allotted time will be frowned upon. Entries submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. Extensions will be granted only in extraordinary circumstances. PLAN AHEAD.
-All entries will require a gameprofile.
-You must submit your entry to the event page (using the submission tools below).

Oh Ok. I will sign up. Is it possible to un-register if you register?
Nope, I don't think it is!
Yellow Magic
Could I BE any more Chandler Bing from Friends (TM)?
Rips will be frowned upon.

:( hope you like RTP...

Can we see still sign up after aug 1st? I want to see the theme before I join.
yep! You can even sign up as late as Aug 31st!
I am available for art & design in any team if anyone needs help?
This is good bananas. I'll wait for the theme before deciding anything and knowing myself I probably won't make anything anyway.

Though I'd love to join a team. One where I can program the game in AGS and someone else provides art and the actual game :D
Sweet! Another contest! It's too bad that I'm super busy for the rest of the summer (well, I'm always busy) so I can't compete. But it will be interesting to see what people come up with. ^^ *excited*

(Why do I get this feeling that the theme will have to do with making various quick mini-games / sports events? Oh man...)
Do you have to have a partner for this or can you vs all the team games solo?
the world ends in whatever my makerscore currently is
I'm pretty sure you can go solo against anybody. :)
Oh yes, event time. /me practices eventing.
also practices the chapset toss and the 100tile dash.

Daw, that's all I got.
(Socrates would certainly not contadict me!)
For a pretty cool guy, that's a lot of guns!!
the world ends in whatever my makerscore currently is
That's why he's a cool guy. ;D

As for all the RM/sporty puns, very nice. :P
Less sucking up to NewBlack and more emphasis on the signing up :)
By "-You ought to have permission to use all art, music, or other content. Rips will be frowned upon.", you mean that rips from other games will be frowned on? Like, Final Fantasy graphics or Xenogears midis?

Wouldn't that result in a ton of RTP and/or Mack and Blue games? :)
