Description

This year marked the 50th year of the first Pride marches to take place. With so much that has been going on in the world - so much discrimination, hate and ignorance - it's time we step up and shout proudly about who and what we are!

Often various groups are under-appreciated and under-represented.

Our identity is important, and thus, this event to create games with more representation of those who get a bum deal when it comes to this shit. Our culture, our race, our sexuality, our gender. Who we are matters and we deserve to be represented in ways that we can appreciate and share with others.

And thus begins a day for each year taken to throw open the doors of ignorance and expose the world to our flaming amazingness. Or something. Let's gammak!

I don't think it needs to be said, but I'm going to say it now so no-one can say I didn't say it earlier - this event is not about representing hate groups nor racial groups that are already over-represented. It's to draw attention to those groups that are under-represented in media. So if I find a game about Brittany the straightest, whitest Cali teen who ever Cali'd and how she is falling in love with Stevie McWhiteboy, the straightest and whitest Cali boi who ever Cali'd, or a game about being a cop who gets to beat down black folk, I will revoke your ability to gammak. Somehow. I'll find a way. So help me Lord Aremen, I will.

Thank you, that is all.

About the dates, there's something fishy:
author=Rules
Event runs from Saturday the 11th July until Monday the 18th August

For me, from July 11th to August 18th = 37 days, not 50 ; unless you use an alternative method for calculating dates.

And the news of the week:
I've started the main map. As you see on the list of teams, I've chosen RPG Maker XP as the engine. By the way, my team's name is "Fflo's 'Rendez-vous en terre inconnue' with the wiccans". The French title is a TV show where celebrities are sent to an isolated place in the world to meet a tribe and live with them for a few days.
The game's gonna be another kinetic novel (already done that kind of game to Rainbow of Positivity, but that wasn't so amazing), with a few choices in the dialogues. It will be a bilingual French/English game, with the language chosen on the title screen.

Libby said something a while ago about fixing that (and the represenatatation) as soon as she's finished settling in.

To be fair, I don't see it being said anywhere that the game needs to be finished in 50 days. Just that it needs to be created within that time frame and, by the end, have at least 20 minutes of play time. Just mark it as a beta or a part 1 of X.


That's probably my plan. Although I may end up releasing the game in an unpolished state (no fancy Sideview actions, monster sprites just slapped on, etc) as version "0.9 - Only play if for the Event, wait like 2-3 weeks for the nicer looking version) and then refining it after. XD

I'm getting easily distracted as well, although getting into a state of "Just DO" for the mapping is helping a bunch. I don't need some perfectly devious sprawling dungeons, I just need a place where the player can traverse it while getting into some fights.

Thing is, I'm doing things in a "non-linear" fashion, as in not exactly building things in the order they will show up, and now I've realized that, depending on what I learn as I continue making stuff, I may need to throw away a lot of what I've already done. A shame.

Any reason you can give for why you feel that way? :o

Edit: Initial scenes done, I'm getting the personalities of my three protagonists (and dog) decently settled. I'm enjoying this little project.

I finished the first intro cutscene, now I need to do a little tutorial section. The problem there is I'm lazy.

I ain't craze but...

I don't like ATB because it's like, half and half, if that makes sense? It's turn-based, but not quite turn-based. It's "action" but also not quite. I'd rather either a plain turn-based system (like most JRPGs) OR a non-turn-based "live action" system (like say Summon Knight or Dark Souls or Diablo or etc).
I mean, you can make a demo, for sure, and you'll get a badge for that, but you'll get a better badge for a full game. As per usual. I'll also fix the time issue NOW and the banner issue in a few days.

Thank you, Libby! :)

I hear you on that, which is why I dislike non-wait type ATB systems (outside of 1v1 fights)

The plugin I'm using pauses the fight during each turn, though, so ATB in this game mostly just provides some variation in when people's actions are available, and allows you do do the occasional "sick play" of "Enemy's turn is incoming, time to empty their speed bar or pop a Blind/Stun/etc NOW"

Holy smokes, 8/29 means that fifty days total is a a lot longer than I realized. I've been having some procrastination issues, but this seems a sigh of relief.

Right now, almost all the assets I wanna use are assembled. Some cutscene maps are done too. Oddly enough, I don't have the protagonist yet. If the game needs to meet twenty minutes, having more time means I could lengthen things more than I thought. I could even include a more full-fledged dungeon, if needed.

Procrastination aside, I'm really glad to be working on a game again. Doing it solo for a bigger project has been kicking my butt. I've also been unenthusiastic about using my MC and her setting. This jam is helping me feel good about using her again, heheh.

Multiple story paths. Not endings; paths. I'm going for it.
I've got one dungeon done - going for two! Hopefully the game comes across as fun and lighthearted. that was really my only goal going in!

the concept is basically; 'in a world where people who experience extreme emotion can become monsters - rock star gays go globetrotting to revert the monsters lost in the corners of the world back into people via their sick jams'

there will be the power of rock and roll, the power of gay, and, of course, the power of Friendship! I even got Punky to help me out!

I just realized I have no idea how to use certain REFMAP town tilesets I've downloaded for this project, and I can't find examples anywhere. Gosh darnit.

I guess I gotta look harder.

Shackled Seas by me and Fomar use those. It's VX Ace but we just enlarged the 2k3 graphics. There's plenty of town maps for you to see.
