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).

Has StarSkip already played all of them? I haven't heard him say anything since the deadline.

Haven't gotten to your game yet, NewBlack, no worries.

Generally speaking, I'd rather evaluate based on the whole of the game too, I just doubt I'll be able to do that in every case due to time constraints.
@Max - If you get stuck on my game then just head over to the game page for spoilers and/or ask me for help if you get really stuck. I'd rather you evaluate based on the whole of the game rather than where you can get to.

I've a baaaad feeling about which of the games you didn't complete because of frustrations.

One down, 11 to go.
EDIT: Two down, 10 to go. I quit this one before I could finish it. Too difficult/frustrating by half.
EDIT: Three down, 9 to go. I also played one other that I really liked and will play again, to go along with the three that I'm "done with". I stupidly forgot to save and lost all of my progress when I died, but that was my fault, not the game's.

I'm going to give a shot at playing quite a lot of RPG maker games in the next 72 hours. (They will be the games from this thread.)
Here's my feedback on the games and the contest in general:

@chana: That word, "outstanding". I don't think it means what you think it means.

While "outstanding" can mean "exceptional", I believe, in this case, it means "the exception or exceptions". "The exceptions", in this case, being teams that have yet to choose an arcana.


Thank you for saying that nicely so I didn't have to. : )

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

sorry about all of the glitches ):
hopefully i'll have fixed everything soon so players can experience the game to it's fullest.
Ok, so I'm done playing all the games. I'll write a wrap-up article in the next couple of days, while everything is fresh in my mind. Then I'll wait for Max to play all the games until we can make our final decision.

(MaxMcGee)"And it would be cool if the outstanding games chose a major arcana" : yes, but who's going to decide : "my game is one of the outstanding games"!

Honesty alert.

I am very very very very busy with other things that are (in some cases by base necessity) more important to me.

I am trying to get out of doing one thing that is tremendously important to me so I can do this instead, which goes to show you how much I care about this obligation. But I have three jobs two of which are also passions and just got back from out of state where I was due to a major real life personal crisis, so I have a lot on my plate right now.

It's only a dozen games so it shouldn't be THAT difficult to power through once I get started. But people should definitely be patient with me right now.

(And it would be cool if the outstanding games chose a major arcana.)
Can we get a judges' update please? :3

In my reckoning (and I've been off before), three games still need to choose an arcana. If that's true, there's still thirteen arcana left.

Ah, Vault-13! Oh, wait. Wrong reference.

Some here take you for the Magician, or is it a sorcerer?!

I'm assuming that the effect of choosing the "right" card for one's game will be have some manner of benefit.Though I'm not exactly sure what it would be. I could also be totally wrong.

However, I would highly suggest clicking on that link Max provided. Or be lazy and click this instead. Remember that you cannot choose a card that has been taken!


Only in the most unfathomably oblique and indirect sense imaginable. In other words: no. But by all means, do select one.
