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.

Uh, quick question, do we have until the 18th or the 29th? I'm assuming the 29th since that would be 50 days, right?

The updated date thingy on the top of the event page has been updated to say the 29th.

Having gotten my first 4/5, I must now work hard to obtain... my second 4/5.

Does anyone know where I can find MP3 versions of the RM2K3 victory jingles? I guess I could use the MIDI version, but all other music I'm using is MP3, so it'd be kind of jarring, wouldn't it?

You could try using https://solmire.com/midi-to-mp3 to convert the midi versions.

Oh my god! Thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for! An MP3 converter that actually makes the MIDI sounds slightly more MP3-ey.

I've used it to convert the JFanfare2 RTP song to MP3. I think the app did a good job, hopefully everyone else agrees.

News of the week:
The novel is over! (The French version only, but it's getting good!)
With 29 minutes, I'm glad to announce you I've reached the 20-minute limit required.

Now it's time for me to improve the graphics, and add some music.
I should change some villagers' sprites too. (e.g: the teenagers, they are as tall as adults ; even if they're only 13!)

And after that, go to the English version!

Yay, good on you, Fflo! I'll wait for the English version, cuz I unfortunately have never quite learned French very well :(

And it's finished for me. (Wow, I'm only the second to have finished!)

So:
- Size of 32 Mb, RPG Maker XP RTP not required
- Novel is 20 to 30 minutes long ; depending on your reading speed
- No readme file (too lazy to add it) ; but the credits are present at the end
- The game page is here
- Only tested the English story, but it should work for the French one too

Now it's time to prepare an argumentation for the potential critics.
Alrighty, the entire story is done, minus a handful of small campfire conversations that don't have a lot of moving parts involved.

And on to balancing this beast!

So far, the difficulty on the "intended" difficulty (hard mode) is...Interesting.

One one hand, you can lose TONS of HP to one or two enemy attacks and end up in serious trouble VERY quickly (and if the enemy gets a kill, especially bosses, they can REALLY snowball).

On the other hand, you have a HUGE amount of options to get un-screwed. And if you don't need to use those options to get un-screwed...You can use them to dominate the enemy pretty convincingly.

I'm glad I went with ATB, I was able to do a lot of neat tricks with it. Popping a powerful move and going "Everyone gets a turn RIGHT NOW" or "you can take 2 actions this turn" are both REALLY fun to use.

Alright then, I'm almost done moving. I'm typing this from my new place, with only a few boxes left to unpack that my wife and I are too lazy to finish today.

I think I might actually finish this before the deadline. Not entirely sure, though.

Ride that slacker/energy wave!
You know, I hope people who've played previous entries in the series I'm making my game part of (Same universe as Illusions of Loyalty and Heresies of Discord), will play it and still care about the weird lore I have in it.

Because I'm revealing a long-planned curveball that I think is really neat, but may come across as weird or unnecessary. XD

In any case, balancing the final dungeon and boss today, after that, just need to wrap up a few loose ends, then I can upload it.

I was gonna make optional bosses like in Illusions of Loyalty, but...I spent most of my week off working on the game and I honestly need a break. Maybe I'll revisit the game to add them some other time.

Dang. I'm worried Liberty's only gonna be playing like four games. I'm worried about finishing my own in time, and I'm sorry that stuff hasn't panned out for most of the folks here. This was a cool event prompt, and I'd be interested to see the rep that's not exclusively LGBT+ (though, I do appreciate those too).

Status report for my own stuff, with ~8 days left...
  • Finish optional dialogue for a certain pre-cutscene map
  • Splash screen in place of animating sprites for dancing
  • Eventing final boss, both cutscene and battle
  • Maybe a new monster for an optional fight?
  • Pick song for the third act's opening cutscene
  • Raid a prior game project of mine for a script to remove junk font

...all stuff that should take at least two sessions, on top of playtesting to make sure I didn't bork stuff. Have been playtesting all the cutscenes, as they're crucial for most of the content. And make up most of the content.

Yeah, I just showed up to say that I'm still working, but I should have kept my idea shorter. Now I'll basically never be done in time.
AND!

I'M!

DONE!

*thud*

Am I sad that I had to scrap the optional bosses? Yeah. But other than that cut? I think this is some of my best work.

So yeah, Glories of the Hunt is done! :D

I also made sure that the game is beatable on the easiest mode, even if Liberty decides to just lean on the confirm key for every battle, while having the harder difficulties provide a significant challenge. ;)

Here's hoping the like 3 of you you were into my previous games in this setting (Illusions of Loyalty and Heresies of Discord) enjoy this fresh new addition of crafty combat and nifty lore. :)

Yay! Another game done! :D
(we're making one too. It will be a demo, and probably won't hit the 20 minutes mark, but we're still running)

Goodness gracious. I did it. I made it. I got the playtesting done. Barring anything I missed, I made it. :'3

Congrats to everyone else, as well! To everyone else putting in the last few days of crunch: don't give up! You've got this! Lastly, Piano, assuming your game is completed as well? It's missing from the list here. :x
We're in the home stretch, even in the worst case we have a demo of about half the game complete done and playable where we stand right now. Still waiting for the gamepage to be accepted :)
