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).

Procrastination pays off now.
I always have too many bugs to participate in short scheduled events. I've spent more time in the beta stage than I have on the actual production (or at least close to it, and still not quite finished ironing everything out).
Well I have a game that's almost done. It's not an RPG, so I was able to make it kind of quickly. I should be able to finish it in time.
working on something, i don't know what it is but it'll be something i finish

I'm out.
Custom graphics take longer than I thought :x I didn't get nearly as much as I wanted to get done, and my IRL schedule is about to get busier.
I'm better suited for shorter contests. Also, the theme was a bummer for me >:(
Though I do understand, I think it's weird that people get behind when working on longer schedules, but they organize themselves better in shorter events. That's actually the reason why people who organize the events prefer shorter deadlines... people are MORE likely to finish their stuff.

Anyway, there is still one week left, so anyone could make a one week game. Y'all know one week is plenty of time.

I will admit. A situation where I have a limited amount of time to do something definitely helps me plan better on these projects and give me more motivation to complete it. Now I see the method to the madness, here.

Anyway, I plan on finishing two stages of my game and submitting a demo. I'm trying to make custom graphics as well, and it took more time than I thought it did. I'll have to see what I can cut down. >_<
There should have been a way to take a person's name off the list if he/she ends up not wanting to participate, or was signed up without him/her knowing.

Why? It's just a list, there's no commitment.

A tip to those who haven't started yet: make non-RPGs. But yes, there's still time.
I'm actually anxious to play all those games.

Personally, I'm anxious that my game is going to be played. Then again, it kinda already was!
I'm anxious about the fact we have only 7 days left.

Darn! I really wanted to make an RPG this time (been doing way too much non-RPG stuff lately) so we're on the RPG boat!

This has been fun :D No better way to start off a new school year than with great games created by great people. Congrats to everyone for all your efforts!

This is the kind of thing that can be said when it's all over. However...

Any chance we could get a roll call of who's actually finished their game for this?

/wishful thinking.
The main reason I'm not continuing is that I'll be working 5 of the remaining 7 days (overtime shifts). No chance in hell I can finish it with just 2 days.

Like I said, shorter contests are better suited to me. Especially during summer when my schedule is more unpredictable.

Why are shorter time limits so great, I would rather longer so we can have a lot more time.

Couldn't you just make a 2 week game during the month?

Would've made sense, two weeks ago. Alas, I targetted a month game for a month xO
