Description

The last few years have been rough, especially for those who are part of the LGBT+ community. This month is Pride month, where we come together to celebrate finally being able to come out legally in society and be treated as equals by law.

Of course, with every step forward there are people against. Many people have stories of disregard, disrespect, hate and other negative interactions aimed at them, even over the course of this year. We could get down about the horrible things that might happen in the future, that have happened in the past...

OR

...we could celebrate the good things that have come from the fight for our rights to be who we are and love who we do!


And what better way to celebrate than to


So, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to make a game that is positive in nature and focuses on either a main character who is LGBT+ or LGBT+ as a theme.



- Start making on the 22nd of June. Finish by midnight of July 14th.
- Games must be at least 10 minutes long.
- You may GATHER resources before that date and make notes about the game, but don't actually start creating (resources or in-engine content) before the official start.
- Games must be positive in nature, especially in regards to LGBT+ themes, and should handle with care the topics you choose to represent. Hate speech is explicitly not allowed and this includes things like killing or flinging insulting remarks towards other groups. People are people, even if they're assholes. Keep it happy, folks! No dark depressive themes here! We're celebrating after all!
- Games must have either a main character who is LGBT+ and focus on them, or the theme based on LGBT+.
- Games must have an approved game page. Get that done and in early!
- Any engine, any resources.
- Please keep in mind that there will likely be a stream for the games, and that youtube is ornery about musical and video use in games. Let's NOT get people's accounts content struck by using stuff like, say, The Emporer's Theme from Star Wars or Warner Bros clips in our games.



- Everyone who takes part will gain a participation badge, worth 20 MS
- Full games will receive another badge on top of that, worth 50 MS
- Every game added will go into the draw for a free game.

Team Wainbow Bawwooons!! gonna make you smile. Team Wainbow Bawwooons!! - come and stay a while.

What in the hell, Page 3?!

EDIT: I was immediately burned out.
you actually made a face that is not horrifying from the generator. impressive



fixed my edging problem ;V although i'm probably gonna redo aspen's (my avatar) sprite like most of the rest so i'll just have to do this over later... qq guess i'll just DO IT NOW

the rpg maker fes graphics are great but the sprites aren't really 1:1 with the faces so i've been getting good pixel practice in modding them...

My game is called Date Knights! (Thanks once again to kentona for so many great punny names!) It's about a dark knight and a holy knight who used to date and now have to work together, along with their two friends who are already in a relationship.

I haven't gotten much done, but I've been sketching the characters:
Aw, your characters are so cute, uni! I like the wicked scar on the lower right one~

Fomi and I decided on gay persona (w/ cryptids) as a basic premise, and we have worked out a few mechanics we want so get readyyy!
ugh, everything is so cute already

Be careful ! I'm French

A song about LGBT to motivate you:

Mecano - 1990 (Spanish group singing this in French, relates the love between 2 women. The song is so touching!)

I refuse to work with VX Ace. I hate this program. Either I'm going to start again in 2k/3 or I'm dropping out of this event. There's something preventing me from getting work done. I finished my main project (for the most part), and I jumped immediately into the Birthday event and now I've engaged in another. I'm exhausted.

I just saw the makerscore and prizes and was like "10 minutes? I can do that... again" without thinking about the mental strain of investing myself into a whole new project totally from scratch on the heels of two others.

EDIT: I'm in the process of getting transferred to Team Rainbow Diamond.
I get you. Cranking out two projects makes another one right after feel a bit weird.
So I focus on what I can do in my life for a happy pride month (like the essay I just finished : D) and I wish you all the best of luck.
I COULD make a motivational dragon or two, though...

GL and have fun with your team transition Corf
Heywhoawaitywha another event up ALREADY?!

...I'll see if I have time, but since work has just started up again and it's intensely draining, my hopes are not high.

Good luck to everyone else participating, though! :)
"i should show something and keep conversation going"

*hasn't done anything visible because he's just been coding*

here have another equipment shot.



on the plus side, i finished everybody's kits and also making sure they worked properly (WHAT A NOVEL IDEA) so now i can sit and construct game, mostly.

also trying to figure out how to limit what maps i have to make while still making the city feel big enough... hrm. at least i don't need to make any other towns.

I love that windowskin and color! So nice! Also, wow she's pretty :DDDDD

I've just been mapping for the last few days. I really need to work more on gameplay than the barebones prep work that I've done.
