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).

Well, I would not suspect you to make finishing touches on the game in the last 4 days and send me an updated copy to take advantage of this minor issue, so just send me the game download however you like. Host it in your locker and post the link. Or just host the game on RMN!
So I started playing the games. I guess they're mostly really short. I'll prepare some form of feedback that doesn't involve writing individual reviews. Maybe an article adressing them all?
Articles are cool with me.

If there's not enough material for separate reviews for each game, I think an article is fine. Though I would think some games would have more material, or spark more of a reaction in general, to comment on than others.

I think a review for each, even short, would be good, they're really different from one another (a review has been written for "Sisters Storybook" and Aetherion, I think), whoich still permits a general article on such or such a subject.

I'm not in a fantasy world, I just want to make games.

If an article is written, does RMN4 allow for such an article to be attached to this event? I'm thinking "no", but it would be really cool.

I was able to download 11/12 entries.

TRANSITION apparently has a broken link.

COULD EVERY CONTESTANT PLEASE ASSIGN A TAROT CARD TO THEIR ENTRY?

Imperishable Wombat Studios Presents: Team Wombat Productions claims The Fool.
With so much reference to Rene Magritte's "The Lovers" in my game it could only be #6, The Lovers.
Gold Team claims Death, for obvious reasons.
Since I was gone and psy_wombats took the one we wanted, we take: The Hermit

My knowledge of what each of the Tarot represents is absolutely terrible, but the Moon sounds about right for Weird Dreams.

Five entries have wisely chosen a tarot card.

Seven have not.

Update:
I now have all games.
The World for Esoterica. Mwahahahahaha!
Marrend: Each of the cards have a negative and positive element, depending on interpretation. Even 'The Devil' card can be positive in some situations.

Because I usually end up with this card anyway:

Team Moga takes the 'Tower' card for 'I'm Scared of Girls'.

I'm thinking Marie Goes to Space wants Star, but that's for Julev to decide.
