Description


It's RPG Maker's birthday and you're invited to join in the celebration! But how to celebrate?

!!


Well, by showing off what we've made using the engine of course! Hey guys, it's been a while since we had a Release Something, hasn't it? ;p

The aim of this event is to release something - whether it be a game (complete or demo), trailer, fan-media, reviews, resources or blog posts! As long as whatever you release has had work on it or was created during the timeframe of the event, it'll count!



◆ Release either a new demo, completed game, trailer, fan-media, review, resource or significant update (like a blog post or series of screenshots or wips, etc) for your own/someone else's game before the end of the event!

◆ All personal releases must have had significant progress made during the event timeline and/or not have been released before (in the case of media, resources, blogs)

◆ The event starts on 16th of February, 2021 GMT.
◆ The event ends on 16th of March, 2021 GMT.

As this is the birthday of RPG Maker, games must be made in or for an RPG Maker engine.

You can release as many pieces as you want, but we highly encourage quality over quantity!



◆ Participation Prize: All participants will receive a cute badge for participating worth 50MS.

◆ Category Prizes: For each category (fan/media, game/demo, resource, update), there will be a winner based on a lottery who will win a to-be-announced prize!



◆ To join, just sign up below!
◆ To submit a game, use a gamepage download!
◆ To add fanmedia, use the event locker.
For blogposts, reviews and anything that won't inherently upload, a text file with links will suffice, if the locker doesn't work.

Have fun and Happy Game Making!

excellent page snipe


E:
lol there's a defect in the event admin page that prevents both game media and game review being selected as options at the same time.

so uh..... for now make a BIG POST HERE with your review submissions to this event!
@everyone who replied: yes, i couldn't submit it from the drop down list. Does my earlier post count as a "big post" or do i need to make another post with the review in it?

Yeah, there's a reason I said about putting in the text file in how to. Forgot to add review but meant to put it as any written thing that you cannpt actually do put in that.

Is it OK to submit a .jpg file like this for the contest? http://www.kiyasugreen.com/vxace/kiyasu-oka_archeia.jpg (<-- Yes, this is my own illustration work.) I am thinking of drawing something like this featuring RTP characters. For example, an illustration of Ralph from VX, Eric from VX Ace, and/or Harold from MV! Would this count as a part of the "fan/media" category?
i think the "fan media" means a fan artwork for your or someone else's games, so i don't think it will work. cmiiw though.

thanks! i must have missed that. i couldn't seem to find a way to upload to the event locker though. i tried to upload the text file to my locker but it still doesn't show up in the selection box either. sorry for being dumb, but could you tell me where to upload the file?

Hello, aquatorrent!

Thanks for replying! I know people have made Harold fan games, so in some sense, maybe if I draw an illustration piece of Harold and specifically say which Harold fan game it comes from, then it might be all right.

However, now I'm tempted to write a review for someone else's game instead... may be too inconvenient to draw illustration pieces with the amount of the time I have left, considering other projects and things to work on.

Hello, everyone!

I have files in my Locker at https://rpgmaker.net/users/kiyasu/locker/?&view=thumb and when I tested the Submit page, the drop-down menu does not have any of my files!

I am wondering what they mean by "For blogposts, reviews and anything that won't inherently upload, a text file with links will suffice, if the locker doesn't work." Do I post the link in the comments here? There seems to be no way to "properly" submit entries that are not games or demos!

Kind regards,
Kiyasu

For kiaysu, aquatorrent, and anybody else wondering about this and because I didn't notice this memo either ;_;:

I believe what it means by...

For blogposts, reviews and anything that won't inherently upload, a text file with links will suffice, if the locker doesn't work.

...this is that you can link to these types of submissions, individually, in a single post. You may want to use the Save Post feature to get to said post quicker. Alternatively, you can create a text file with links to these types of submissions, upload it into your locker, and link to it here.

*Edit: So, for example, we could reference this post as aqautorrent's list-post, and this post as kiaysu's list-post. Does this make more sense?
There is no publishing method for media objects, only games can be published. I have the same problem as the above. (Although it has been uploaded to the locker)
Media for other game pages can be added to their game pages. Just go to the game page and click on Submit Media (in the same place as Submit Review). When it gets accepted, you can then access it!



Hit submit in the top-right corner of this page, look in the download list for that media submission and then choose to upload it. Easy!



As for uploading here... seems it's another thing that doesn't work. orz
:shakes fist:

In that case, please just make a single post here with the text file or links needed.
i'm not sure if i should submit media of an event file to someone else's game, so i guess i'll just opt for the second option, making a post with a text file of the review.

here's the text file.

hopefully i didn't do it wrong this time (feel free to let me know if i did though).

that can work as well. feel free to submit whichever you're comfortable with, of course, since review also count for the submission. good luck with it!
Screensaver window plugin just pending page approval. Also have a demo game to show it in use in the normal game field.

I hope you put your TOP MEN on it. TOP MEN.

Hello, all,

Thank you for your replies!

All right, I was confused at first but after reading the various replies after mine, it seems to sound like it is OK to submit entries in this comment section? However, it doesn't feel right that on the Participants list above, there is no file next to the entrant's name! So, I would like to double-check with everyone, just in case...

Another thing I want to address is the case of if you are submitting a fan review (for example) of someone else's game that is not uploaded to this Web site. It looks like if the Locker for the text file is not working on the Submission page, then our only choice is to directly post a comment here with the links inside one post.

Thanks, aqua torrent!

Oh wow, that's an interesting submission. Not exactly sure what to say, but good luck with your files!

I appreciate the confirmation to what I also experienced. Thanks for mentioning your experience!

Submitted my gamepage now to have some leeway to finish the demo. Almost there!
The event submission page doesn't allow for a plugin page, so here's my BIG POST announcing my submission:

DynDatabaseOverride plugin page (still pending approval as of this post)
