Description

Halloween has come again and this time we let you guys pick the theme.

Fairy Tales are often stories told to give children a moralistic lesson. In and of themselves they can be pretty scary, but they tend to end happily or are resolved in a way that good triumphs in some way.

For this event you are being tasked with taking some of those Fairy Tales that you grew up with and giving them dark twists. From Little Red Riding Hood to Sleeping Beauty to Jack and the Beanstalk, any Fairy Tale is pickable. You can even smush a few together if you like!



- Games must be new - not an old game that you're finishing off - and should have been started after the event starting date. They must abide by site rules and be at least 10 minutes long.
- Submit a gamepage before the end of the event. It must abide by site rules and standards. Upload your game to your gamepage then submit via this event page.
- Team-ups are available.
- You may have more than one entry (in case you want to team up for one game with someone and make your own as well).
- You may pick any Fairy Tale you like, from anywhere in the world - it just has to be recognisable as that story when presented in the game.*
- Start Date: 1st of October
- End date: Midnight of 31st October - SITE TIME! (Remember to change your hourly offset in Settings so you have the right time show up on the page!)



There are three badges up for grabs.
- The Shattered Slipper: 50 MS for a completed game.
- The Bloody Apple: 10 MS for a demo.
- The Bone-filled Oven: 50 MS for being picked by our judge, LockeZ, as the best of the bunch. (Only complete games will be judged!)

"- You may pick any Fairy Tale you like, from anywhere in the world - it just has to be recognisable as that story when presented in the game."
That is, having a story based on little red riding hood and it being about a girl called Ridley who goes to school and kills all her friends... well, it might have inspired something of the plot (maybe) but it's not recognisable as such. But a girl who gets convicted of killing her grandmother and runs to hide in the woods where she meets a down-and-out lawyer called Wolfe who tries to help her but finds out that she has a second personality called Cutter who likes to, well, axe questions... that is recognisable as being based in said Fairy Tale.

I mean I like to think I'm decent at coming up with ideas and stories, my main problem is being able to actually create things lol. but I'm on board for a team, yeah!

If you are using a semi-custom sprite for Baba, could I also use it in my game for a cameo?

totally! if i make one good enough you want to use it, just credit me for it, y'know

Absolutely. Credits are an extreme point of agonizing detail for me!

As far as collab'ing: Drop me a PM with an out line or some general ideas and we can see what we can hash out. I tend to be kind of silly in my writing style, so I don't know how much writing contributions you are looking for. :p
Reach me at Muffle#1800 on discord ^^
Why not!I needed the motivation anyways.

My submission has been accepted and you can go there to see what I've done (still a WIP, but the screenshots will give you a preview).

Wow, that was fast.
I'm kinda stuck on reinstalling system (again). But I got ideas and I should have time, once I get over that.

I did mine by the 5th. I just can't do my page yet, because I made the mistake of saying "this game might be racy." So now my game's being audited for content. Oops.

The House of Gwendoline.

That was fast. I submitted three or four days ago and was kind of surprised that I wasn't the first up.
Checked them all last night. There were multiple pages so it might just be that yours was on the second page and went through after first page was checked. Or something. I did have lunch between doing all of them, too. So, yeah. XD
I finished working on Random Fairy Tales Generator web page for fun:
https://rpgmaker.net/media/content/users/67753/locker/fairytale.html

Based on Darken's method for randomization-
https://rpgmaker.net/media/content/users/204/locker/method.txt

Hopefully I'll have something ready a week before the event ends.
@tale: Yo that's sick, I was thinking someone should make a generator and here it is!
Don't mind this post just seeing what time it shows on RMN so I see the correct time the event ends on my end.

EDIT for reminder: This was at 8:43pm my time. So it ends at 7:59pm.

x_x two hours... still small things i want to change and edits i want to make/add but if i don't stop i'll never finish within our timeline (karsu and i wanna only spend like two weeks on the project since it's ACTUALLY SHORT wow)
I keep having the urge to just throw up my hands and stop working on this project because I won't finish in time.

Then I remember I have 3 weeks left and I am making good progress, despite my overwhelming need to edit every tileset and sprite that I come across because compulsion. (Side topic: Does anyone know of a good QTE script?)
I've got the very basics of my game working. It's a point+click, and I'm roughly basing it off Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

I'm giving myself one more week of mostly-engine-programming (although the engine is fairly close, since the engine is mostly from another project), and then two weeks of mostly-making-content. Hopefully that works out :P
It's so quiet...

I hope that means people are focused on making cool shet?

BTW, some people said they submitted entries, but I don't see them. Whats up, gam makrs?
^
That is a good question. Don't forget that you need to add your submissions TO THIS PAGE.
To do so, upload the file to your game page then come to this page. Top-right is the Submit button. Click on that, then pick the game download that applies for this event. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
