Description


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).

But then the judges have to have Windows XP or higher.
How do I know none of you are operating on Linux?

I used XP as the example (Windows have had built-in zip support since windows 98) because it says in the rules (you've read those haven't you? Since this discussion is about the rules it goes without saying that you've read them):

What about releasing the game before the contest ends/the results are out?
I would like to release my project in my (german) base-community.
Around the 23rd August.

that's fine. You just need to submit the game before the deadline. If it was ready today you could submit it today!

If that was supposed to be a joke about being done early, I'm not amused.

Well, maybe a little bit amused!

I am going to be judging entries based on the actual correct definition of surrealism, so I do suggest you all refresh yourself on the works of Breton, Ernst, Dali, Bunuel, Masson, and Magritte.

I think maybe you're missing the point if you're doing that.

This would have been helpful last week.
Well the rules said that the theme is surrealism so Max McGee was making an aclaration that already has been told
