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).

No, I'm not; no offense to pyro, of course, but I'm looking to work with someone I'm already familiar with on RMN for this one :D Please remove me from that team. Maybe we can work together in the future!

Who needs moi? 2k/2k3/SMBX only, I'm afraid.


Well I'm sorry, it won't allow me! Everytime I try I can't find anything that will allow me to kick you out or anything! I need help if you want out!

From where I'm sitting, Deck's not listed in your team anymore. Not sure who's responsible for that, but whatever! ...Right?


*Edit: I'm curious to see the SMBX game that works with this theme. Make it happen, jackalotrun!

This is a cool theme now that I really know what it's about! It would be perfect for a yume nikki styled game! And for people who doesn't know what they mean, Surrealism: movement that attempts to express the workings of the "existing or operating in the mind beneath or beyond consciousness" and is characterized by fantastic imagery and "inappropriate" "the state of being close together or side by side" of subject matter.
In other words, look up Yume Nikki, this theme would be just PERFECT for a game like that.

All I will say is that the plot for my game centres around a cancer patient.
I'm gonna be honest and up-front now and say that my project involves a lot of ripping stuff off.
I'm gonna be honest and up-front now and say I gave up and went back to my main project.

Thats a shame.

Heres a good execise that you can do if anyone is having trouble with the theme.

Grab yourself A4 paper and a pencil. And write three words across the top of the page. Fears, Desires and Repression, now draw pictures underneath symbolising those words. Hey presto you can build your game around it!

For example my fears could be spiders, my desires representing wealth and my repression could be stealing when I was younger.
So you can have a game with your character stealing money from spiders?? (wow thats a terrible example)

Well my current project is pretty surreal by itself, it's just more exciting to work on as of now (plus i'd like to get it done and not have a 1 month distraction).

Well, I've already got my idea on the spot, and you should know I'm gonna be saying alot about Yume Nikki on this site, but pretty much, it's gonna be like Yume Nikki, except with battling instead of just using the knife, and it's going to have a clear storyline, but I could interpret your idea into it though. I wonder how it would work though, hm...
I'm scared of lots of things. I want a lot of things. And I don't know wtf repression means, so I'm gonna have to search. Anyways I've said too much about my game already.
I signed up. Once I saw the theme I decided: "Don't want to do this." Is there anyway I can quit?

I don't believe there is a way to back out as such. But not submiting a game before the deadline would have your team name crossed out, which is a form of quitting I guess. But it'll be stuck on there forever... Can you live with that shame? :P

^That.

I gave it some thought, but ultimately couldn't do it. I forget which side of the brain is artsy, the other logical. Mine is too logical. Way too logical.

Well, I try as much as I can to make my thoughts go the right way, where everything made sense. You know logical way, and the way I don't get hurt because I'm just being me. And I not really the artsy type, even with an imagination the size I have! But that's not stopping me, get some things that will give the illusion of surrealism, like pictures and music, and try and incorporate your logic around that. Alright? Just being nice and helpful.
I had some ideas coming into this but the theme was a game-changer.
I'll think about it at work tomorrow =o

Lmao!

Darken, you crack me up, sometimes, you know that? :D

Good luck to everybody else that isn't Darken.
I want to comment, but I have pretty much similar things to comment as the others have: working the concept ideas. My game is gonna be aweseome, my mind is sick in surrealism etc... so I only want to say something that I really want to express, StarSkipping I love your avatar.

Are you guys still doing the VN? I'm looking forward to the project, I'll definitely be watching for the gamepage.
