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).

I was able to download 11/12 entries.

TRANSITION apparently has a broken link.

The tarot card thing was just to determine the order in which I would play the games (randomly, by drawing cards from a Tarot deck).

It had no other effect on anything, except by accident--the choice of "Death" for Sisters Storybook really heightened the surrealism and made me consider the game on an entirely deeper level, perhaps erroneously so.

Anyway, because Eomnium and Beyond the Gate never came out of the "deck" because they didn't have cards to represent them, they're getting played last. (Which again, should have no particular bearing on anything.)
amusing tassadar, your taste in companionship grows ever more inexplicable
Well, there are some hidden meanings on Sister's Storybook, but they are completely incidental and have no effect on a regular playthrough.

I had figured it was something like this.

I am not sure when the next competition is going to be, but the next event will start in roughly 2 weeks.

also, I gave out the achievements. If I missed you for an achievement, let me know! Participants are ones who were part f a team who released a game.

Maybe it's just an impression, but I'm thinking all the judges found Weird Dreams to be difficult? Actually, I'm getting the bad impression that everyone who played the game found it difficult, as I've no feedback that suggests otherwise.

On a more positive note, congratulations to everyone who participated! I give a warm-hearted cheer to the winners!

Yes, it was much, much too difficult Marrend. (Fortunately, this is a relatively easy and fun problem to fix.)
I think it was pretty difficult, but difficulty is not among the game's major problems.
