Description

Hi there, welcome to another event to celebrate RMN's birthday! This year the site turns 12 years old!

You all voted and the winner of the poll was...
Abrupt Ending


An abrupt ending is still an ending... of sorts. It's not as simple as shutting down the program - but is more along the lines of just cutting the story at a place where some things are rounded off but other things are still left hanging. An easy example would be if getting out of Midgar was the end of FF7 or if Chrono Trigger ended when you got back to your own time. Another example is if a game ended after the hero loses a cinematic, cannot-win battle instead of carrying on the story.



Rules
- Start making on the 8th of June
- End making at Midnight (site time) of the 16th of June
- Game must be at least 10 minutes long
- Full games only
- Any engine, any assets. If you intend to make graphics for the game, you may start now, and planning on paper outside the engine is allowed. No in-engine starting though!
- No game pages necessary. Just upload straight to the page.
- Be as silly or as serious as you like, as long as it falls within the rules of the site.
- Games must have an abrupt ending!


Prizes
- A 40 MS badge for any games that follow the above rules.
- Three random people will get to choose a game from Liberty's Humble list (there's literally hundreds...)

I would like to mention that abrupt ending isn't the same as open ending. It's more along lines of your protagonist suddenly dying than them finding out this was just a beginning of a far more grandiose journey.

Where's booze btw?
Woahhhhhhhhhhhh

You are a loose collection of works of a particular author or artist that are recognized as genuine? How quaint.

Oh no... This time I really have to keep it simple.

The fun part is you can get to the end of the event and go "Welp, cut there and it's very abrupt ending"

Unless you want to make multiple abrupt endings!

I am a man of honor.
I won't know how much time I have, though.
Time to make some abrupt endings people. I'm aiming for making this solo but am willing to work in a duo if someone convinces me.
I'm going to try to keep it simple this time. Hopefully I can do a good job this time.
Could we theoretically (after the event's finished) make a new "version" of the game, in which the end isn't abrupt? Because the game I want to do has a good story behind it... it wouldn't be fair to just leave it like that... without a proper ending I mean.
Just checking: it's OK if the game has multiple endings, as long each and every one of them is "abrupt" like they are in the middle of a dungeon, three steps from the BigBadThing and ...

They're either killed by a rock or live happy ever after?
No game page needed?

Alrighty, less do this, then.
wonder what to make with just 1 week
This looks like it could be pretty fun. Count me in.

What if I were to tell you that my entry will end before it begins?

Kidding. I have zero ideas for this right now.
