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.

today has been greatly waylaid by Shadowbringers but like

writing the first dates is proving to be very amusing


I wanna see ALL the dates :DDD
A few spritesets and a couple tilesets done, you can walk around (no attacks working yet).

Wow, that looks amazing! :DDD What engine are you using?

Aww thanks!

I use my own custom engine written in Mercury and scripted in Lisp. I put "other" since I've used it for other games on this site before, and I didn't want to make it seem like I started from absolutely nothing for this event.

Super cool! I've got to remember to give this a play when you're done! :DDD

I'm not sure if I'll actually finish something, but I've drawn some tiles.



This 10-minute rule is too restrictive, most games I've made so far are shorter

Upd.: decided not to participate

So Zorga got me to pull myself out of another rut. Despite the late start I'm trying this out. Lucky me, the MC I've been dying to make a game around is already male-to-female transgender, so I feel this game can be a prologue to a longer project with any luck?
AAAH I've JUST NOW found out about this event!
I'd love to make something, but I wonder if I can actually MAKE something in 10 days.
I mean, I've never been known for my game making speed.

I don't think I'll be able to finish anything for this event. Not a big deal, since my idea was very undeveloped, and basically only one big plagiarisation of previous work by Liberty and pianotm. Still, it would have been fun, but I just don't have the time or necessary resources. Maybe some day.

Best of luck to all you other amazing people, though! Make the (game) world a happier place!

ok I love this style. It's like an early NES RPG, before tropes and style got codified
I'm still on course to get SOMETHING out for this. Fingers crossed that it doesn't suck!
I'm currently trying to figure out the engine I'm using, but I'm on track to at least have something for the deadline, whether it's 10 minutes long or not.

I got my game's gamepage up! :DDD

https://rpgmaker.net/games/11181/

As usual, I seem to have bitten off more than I can chew, so I probably won't have the game finished in time, but I should have a nice demo for it with about an hour of playable content.

Got my game page up and it even made New and Notable! I'm so happy!! Such an honor.

Thanks!! I'm still making a queer game with it, just not for this event because I'm super-slow and need more time ^^'
