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).

A four-member team, huh? Wonder how that will end up working?

Also, Deckiller is still on pyrodoom's team?
Just a random RMNer once again.
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.
(Socrates would certainly not contadict me!)
last one's well composed to be the"killer-team"!
This theme confuses me.

Are we supposed to be making Van Gogh games or something?

I feel like we're not supposed to make RPGs for this...
(Socrates would certainly not contadict me!)
Well look up the surrealist painter or poets, maybe, it will give you an idea
Anaryu, come on, you can do great things in RPG in surrealism. and is not Van Gogh, is Salvador Dali the one that draws surrealism
Yeah, doing more research. I feel like the theme is expecting more depth than I have as a person though. : )
Dude, I got this. I can draw some pretty weird stuff.
Q: How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Fish.

In all seriousness, I was interested in participating, but I may sit out. Unless my partner-in-crime comes up with something, I'm stuck. Surrealism isn't something I'm all that familiar with and comfortable working around.
Interesting concept though, I'll say that much. Should spawn some good stuff.
The more I look into it, the more I think that making no sense the core of this - I am a master of making no sense.

Circumstance penalty for being the bard.
We will make it make sense. By force.
What an enthusiastic team XD

Here are a few examples, if it helps (from different surrealists)

The temple entrance puts on eyeliner
Olympus and paradise and forests
Like the old electric bulbs
Now poetry is sucked from a pointed tit
from these homicidal luminous breasts
From Homicidal Air
The 524 is for 524 Stone Crabs
This is interesting... It seems like a somewhat difficult concept to pull off, but I can do it!
Three of the ideas I've had swimming in my head for a while deal with exactly this. I hadn't planned on making them for a long time, but they all seem perfect for a month long contest. The hard part will be picking between them.

Gonna go ahead and call the name now. Surreality: The Dreamlike
Yellow Magic
I'll never regain the bones I lost from my loneliness and sorrow
I can finally make that art-game I always wanted! Best. Theme. Ever.
Welp @ the theme...

I'm willing to join a XP/VX team. I can do some coding.
