Are we allowed to make two games? One in 15 hours and one in 5? And we don't have to make all the challenges right?

The challenges are bonus prizes from my understanding. I assume you can do both 15 and 5 but............... damn

edit: hey does "attack/defend" count as skills this time? they didn't for ninth birthday iirc but 5 is a bit roomier

Well they are skills. The rules say only 5 Spells! Clearly you can have as many skills as you want but only 5 spells!

5th Element- 5 spells total

You may make two games, one for each of the time-based badges.

Just to be clear, you will only get one badge between the 15 and 5 hour gammak and the other badges are bonus ones on top for each game.

So if you make one 15 hour game with 5 Tile Rule and 5th Elements, then a 5 hour game with 5th element and Five Golden Rings you would get Final Finery 15, Fantastic Number Five, 5 Tile Rule, Five Golden Rings and two 5th Element badges.

For this event spells and skills are the same thing, HOWEVER, I'll ignore Attack/Defend/Run as part of that count.
Oh goooods, I'm being tempted. Being really really tempted... XD

So, all the additional stuff like 5 maps only, etc, those are additional challenges, not required?
Just to be sure, the 5 characters and 5 spells/skills challenges only affect the playable party and NPCs, right?
Can we have as many enemies and enemy skills/spells as we want?

This was not the case for ninth birthday. hard limit!
Happy Birthday RMN! Hope you have a wonderful day with your family and friends! I've known you for around 12 years already.

I'm gonna do you this weekend ;) ;). A new gam.
So you can have like....1 playable character, 1 npc, and 3 enemies as an example of the 5 character limit? Or would enemies be separate (if so, bonus points for having 5 enemies?)
Given I'm still recovering from my 4th covid shot (and so want to chill as much as possible), and have been neglecting my apartment for a bit and thus have a lot of stuff I need to do this weekend...

I think I'm going to pass on this one, I'm sorry y'all. XD
Progress update:

Spent ~4 hours on writing/planning phase, then ~8 hours making art and music.
I then had to reevaluate and cut down about 3/4 of the content to have a better chance to meet the deadline.
I estime that I still need 4~6 hours to finish all the assets, then I'll go for the 5 hour challenge to put the game together and test it.
If I don't meet the deadline, I'll still release the game for sure.

Guess who's good and who's evil:

Two-hour update.

Two hours into my game. Using RTP only. I'm almost done.

Edit: Three-hour update.

Done.
5 hour gam done! If you wanna know who the characters are/see more of Malice, play Legends of Perren- Task of Malice! All 5s are in the Sideventure, can you find all the secrets?! They're in plain sight.

EDIT:
Tweaked some balance numbers a bit and re-uploaded, should make physical attacks more useful and one spell more efficient.

I think I found a bug:
The chests containing the Sword of Light and the Power Suit can be opened each time you enter the map where they are.

Enemies in battle won't count as characters. If they're ones you interact with on the map, though - like you talk to them and have a sprite - then they'll count.

If you're not aiming for the 5 enemies, yes. If the enemies are on-map and interactable, then they'll count as characters. If they're random encounters, they won't.
Submitted my game! I lost track of time, it might be less than 5 hours but for sure it was less than 15 hours.
