Description

Welcome to RMN's 14th birthday! This year we've got a very simple event planned:

- The phrase "I will finish making a game!"
- The phrase "I will not beg RMN for pizza."
- The world's unluckiest person
- RMN Boba Challenge
- An old man complaining about something ridiculous
- Three different memes
- A missing present
- Too many butterflies
- A childish rap battle
- A talking birthday cake
- The Happy Birthday song sung incorrectly
- 14 of something to find/collect
- Spinach

- At least 5 minutes of playtime is required!
- Obvious troll games will be thrown out with the trash!

Aw...little RMN is finally growing up right in front of our eyes...

Now he’s getting ready to get beaten up in high school by all of the twelfth graders… *sniff*

Technically I'm a year late to say this but RMN is old enough to join RMN!

Wasn't very motivated to join at first but count me in.

What I plan to do could have fit in previous RMN events: a LGBT context (A Rainbow of Positivity, what I did for this one was bad!) and a single map game (Valentiny 2020, this one was better even if too simple).
For the list of creative constraints, I should be using at least 5 of them.
The engine will be RMXP. The main character will be myself. (The same guy you control in my Mapdaptation submission, and my avatar btw)

And the wacky story:
I must bake a cake for my boyfriend's birthday who must stay in our bedroom until I finish it. However, this wouldn't be as easy as pie since I will be disturbed by many "bizarre" people...
(A slightly more detailed story awaits you on the Discord...)
14 hours... I've never thought of joining an event with such a short creation frame, but maybe joining something so short is a good thing. Ahh I'll have to think about it.
My game will be called meme quest and will feature a "meme investigator" entering the meme dimension to contain 14 powerful "meme lords" who if left unchecked could invade and destroy all dimensions. On your quest you meet many strange allies from other universes like:
-Reeks, a bird war general from the bird civil war dimension where birds became the dominant species instead of humans and an endless civil war rages between Owls, Bats, Eagles, and Falcons has raged on and on since anyone could remember. Serves as your tank.
-Flopflop, a fish who wants to escape to Canada due to the political turmoil in his own country, but got captured by ICE and forced to serve them as a meme investigator. He comes from the fish dimension, a dimension where fish developed legs and conquered, enslaved, and killed all humans and become the dominant species in their ancient past. He serves as your healer and buffer.
-Gilbert: An old man from the Gamer Dimension where everyone is required by the state to become an epic gamer, and in doing so consume a massive amount of Mountain Dew and Doritos, constantly say slurs in MW2 lobbies, and constantly speak in numbers instead of words. Before the government takeover by gamers, he was a philosophy major and planned to become a position. He serves as your mage.
-Lie: A living, talking cake who's home is the living bakery dimension where due to a nuclear accident baked goods became alive and killed all humans in rebellion for always being eaten by them. He serves as your debuffer and can also use dark magic.

The 14 meme lords follow as such:
#1: Big Chungus
#2: Ugandan Knuckles
#3: Dr. Robotnik
#4: Phil Swift
#5: Arthur
#6: Longcat
#7: Shaggy Rogers
#8: Nyan Cat
#9: Barry Bee Benson
#10: Shrek
#11: Waluigi
#12: Robbie Rotten
#13: Pepe the Frog
#14: Obama

Enjoy!
I have a fever, and the only prescription... is more cake!

We'll see what I can whip up.
The "should include list" gives me the following idea:

a militaristic bird + too many butterflies in a shmup

How crazy could this be?

14 hours? After refining things, it's a birfday celebration. For my gnoll bard on her thirteenth birthday. At fantasy Chuck E Cheese's.

Yeah, this is by no means going to be a serious game. Mostly. My "current favorite song" prompt will have to be the one and only serious part, because of the song itself. The 14 things will be a play on Dragon Quest's mini medals, needed to win the game.
Hi. Just checking the time.

Happy Birthday, RMN!

Unfortunately, I'm a busy hell rn. I don't have a single day of free time till next saturday and I'll be busy rounding up my graphic design project then.
I've managed to start something last night. I am so glad p much only in-editor work is counted towards the distributed 14 hour limit.

1/14 hours used so far, 2/14 maps roughly made, 3/14 challenge prompts immediately accessible

I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

This will be funny in thirty years when you're like "Man I can't believe I've been on RMN for 44 years"

Man, I need to drop out of events more often. I've been on fire for this one! Totally assembling a game page. Who knew that the secret easy mode for a week-long event was to create a scavenger hunt game? And one that doesn't take itself too seriously at that?

12 of 14 collectibles have been integrated. The one (1) battle, some NPC dialogue, the ending scene and a title screen are all I need. Oh, and playtesting. Am five hours out of fourteen for the event, and I may or may not go back and polish stuff later. Sounds do not fit the high-end 8-bit aesthetic but hey, I know I can edit 8-bit sprites the easiest.

Took on three of the prompts so far, and will add a fourth. Consider one-third of a prompt in there too. Maybe I might include an interactive rap battle as an optional victory lap when I know for sure the game works in time? After all, Nazreen's first game was a dating sim with dialogue choices. But for now...

Maybe I'll hate myself for this later on, but fuck it, I'm in!
