Description

M.O.G. "My Own Game" Multipart Event - Game Creation


In this event we will attempt create a game using resources generated during the previous MOG events.

The intent is to get people out of their comfort zones and attempt the different aspects of game creation. The M.O.G. initiative be a 3-part event, with each event focusing on a different aspect - soundtrack, graphics, and game creation. This event will focus on the GAME. The graphics event focused on tilesets, charsets, and battlers and the like, and the music event focused on soundtracks and sound effects. This is the final event of the MOG creation series, wherein we create a game but only using resources created in the previous two events (+ general public resources or resources you create yourself or RTP, to fill gaps)!

This is a pretty ambitious undertaking, but it sounds pretty satisfying, too!

The MOG Music and MOG Graphics events are still running, but they wrap up later this month, so if you have any special requests or gaps that need filling, now is the time to ask! Or encourage people there who have started something to finish their work. (Knowing that someone wants to use your stuff is great motivation).

If you use resources by someone else in the MOG Graphics and/or Music events, please include them in your gameprofile's 'Developers' as Other (and specify what you used)

Like, if you used Ratty524's awesome battlers, do:

Other (Battlers) - Ratty524

The bonus makerscore for resource creators is part of the event, so if you would be so kind as to included them in your gameprofile, it would be much appreciated!








This event is asking you to make a game, or make a demo/prototype. As such, you will need to have a gameprofile accepted by RMN (and subject to RMN's submission rules), to participate. Once ready, you will have to submit your game's download to this event (using the Submit button in the upper right). Multiple games are welcome (if you are so inclined)!

THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION


We are doing this for the betterment of our game development skills. Familiarization with other aspects of game development, even if we never develop the expertise to be proficient in it, is still very valuable. That being said, I will be giving out achievements for:

-Full game
-Demo/Prototype game
-A gameprofile will good mapping examples

By that last one, what I mean is you've started work on a game using the MOG resources, but didn't generate anything playable yet.

Works submitted to this event are expected to be free to play.

While the event is very RPG-centric (hey, we are RPG Maker Network afterall!), feel free to create a game for any genre of your choice.



It is my sincere hope that those of us here who are energetic game developers might share with us their expertise and learning. Either by helping out individuals in the comments section, offering advice, or posting links to useful resources, or even as far as writing tutorials of their own.

Members who take it upon themselves to be super-helpful in this event will receive a special achievement!

Think of this game making event as a month-long project, even though you have nearly 7 weeks, and plan the scope accordingly. Working with others and making custom resources to fill games is time-consuming.

For me, I think I am going to have to abandon the idea of using my own custom soundtrack, but I still hope to finish my custom graphics pack.
Gonna have to check those events and see all the neat stuff people made! Then think of what game to make out of it all.

The main characters experience conflict at the hands of antagonists, resulting in situations they must work together to overcome.
I hope the antagonists are Mecha Hitler, Skeletonne, Brick Vader, Nullheart, and Stan


e: First protip: Don't try to create a unique moveset for every enemy in the game if you are trying to meet a month seven week deadline. e2: unless you are good at those things (I am not)

Let's see! This is an awesome event COME ON GUYS

It's a shame that you won't participate @Unity, but good luck with your projects.
~sigh~
I guess I'll have to try and hype things up? I personally and honestly don't know where to start with my own project hahahahahahaha >.<
Now I can start prototyping my sci-gi game. >:D

Very cool!

I have a question, though:

author=kentona
This is the final event of the MOG creation series, wherein we create a game but only using resources created in the previous two events (+ general public resources or resources you create yourself or RTP, to fill gaps)

So does that mean that rips are the only thing off-limits?

I feel compelled to make a small game for this, just to introduce a change of pace with everything else I have going on. I don't know what graphics pack I want to use, though.

Pretty much.

I should probably mention that you HAVE to use some stuff from the other MOG events, so that it's not just a full RTP game or whatever.

Must it be resources from previous MOG?

well... ideally, but the intent is to use custom assets, so if you have some legacy custom assets, you can use them

There should be more incentive to use entire MOG material. Someone who makes a game using no RTP / REFMAP and sticks to this should get crazy maker score. And if you manage to use something from everyone who submitted it should be double crazy maker score. Anyways I'm way too busy not doing anything on my current projects.
Urgh, I'm pretty sure I didn't make anything for the MOG stuff. So, probably not able to participate.

You can use anything made from the event, you didn't need to make it yourself. That includes my tile sets, which are so rad they change the small "r" in "rmn" to a big "R."
I'm specifically going to limit myself to materials made during the graphics and soundtrack event to see what happens, it's more interesting that way. I don't know about sound effects, though. I might have to make those myself.

Do you have to use assets from the MOG events or can you use entirely custom stuff?
