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).

Beta test for the remaining 6 days. :P
Damn, Create a game in 5 days... I hope I make it on time XD
Wait a second, if the closing date is based on American time zones, that could potentially give me an extra 5 to 8 hours!
Please guys... no game crashing bugs, or missing files.

Nope. It's GMT I am pretty sure.

EDIT:
or is it called UTC now?
Isn't it possible to submit nearly anything for this theme? If I just change the graphics...

But I guess we will have 10 Yume Nikki ripoffs which are even lousier than the original...
Hope there are some more original ideas.

I learned in fourth grade that it was GMT. Are they changing it on us now?!
Too many games to keep track of in subs. Anyone got a list somewhere? I wanna play ALL the games.

That is just a bad opinion on so many levels, I don't even know when to start... >: (
I didn't even know what Yume Nikki was until this competition started.

I can safely say I'm not gonna make a game anything like it.
