Description

Are you ready for the excitement of the 2014 Indie Game Development Contest? Make your dream game during the month of June for a chance to win huge cash prizes (up to $10,000), widespread acclaim, and possibly a review by one of our celebrity judges. Now is your chance to grab the spotlight and become a renowned indie developer!

Sign up for the official contest here

This is the RMN event page for RPG Maker Web's big contest
RMN is not hosting this event. This is a place for RMN members to congregate and showcase their game submissions for this massive event.



June is going to be a massive month for us. Not only is RPG Maker being featured in a Humble Bundle, but June is also National Game Development Month. To celebrate, we here at RPG Maker, in partnership with Humble Bundle, are holding an Indie Game Maker Contest for the entire month!

Here's the best part: there's no restriction on genre or engine! Games will be separated into two categories (RPG and non-RPG) and judged for their presentation, gameplay, and fun factor. Feel free to use any engine you want and make any kind of game you desire (as long as you follow the rules, of course). The games must be complete, though, so be sure to budget your time carefully! We do recommend keeping the play time to under one hour, as the judges will typically stop playing at that point.

This is your chance to have a blast and create that short, creative game you always dreamed of and win a huge prize! If you're an aspiring commercial indie developer, this could be a golden opportunity to put your name on the map!

Cheers Cash. It ain't quite an accha game but I put quite a bit of effort into the gameplay and writing - hoping it pays off.

That looks pretty neat! A puzzle game I'm guessing?
I decided to make a really simple game for this after all. Guess I better get cracking, since I have less than a week.

My game is complete and ready for other people's eyes! I'm ready. Scared but ready. Bring on the criticism!

We're about 95% done :D
Our game is only one scene away from being done. Though that's just the gameplay. We still need to tidy up graphics and interface, as well as fixing dialogues. Still a lot to do ;____;

Man, it feels so weird putting my other project on hold, considering how much time I have already put into it. But we're almost done, and I can use a lot of what I learned here to make it better.
I wish I had found this contest a while earlier. ;_;
It seems I'm always missing contests. I look forward to playing some of these games though.

you ruin all the fun
I'm thinking I'll finish on Sunday. I'm essentially waiting on some resources from a couple of friends who are helping me out, but, in the mean time, I'm adding a few little things here and there. Then there's just testing and lots of praying.

Edit: ah, yeah, Densetsu no Kusoge. Haven't played it yet, but I'm pretty sure it's still better than my entry.
Prove it.

EDIT: Anyway, has anyone thought of doing an RMN podcast or stream of the games submitted on the side of this contest? I think that'll be cool, aside from just covering the winners.

Had an english exam to study for, now i just have to rush production for the next 3 days i guess.
I still have an awful lot to do.
Thankfully most of it is eventing, and I can usually power through that quickly enough.
I just have to find time to get it out to my testers...
Mine is finished, just having a few people playtest it for bugs before uploading!
