Description

The raffle has concluded! Congratulations to Ankylo (ticket #1), Killer Wolf (ticket #3), Sylenus (ticket #82), and Marcus (ticket #77) for winning prizes!


National Game Development Month (NaGaDeMo) is over, and we had a whopping 31 "official" submissions, as well as 30 other demos/completed games that were not submitted to the event page! This is a major achievement for RMN; we more than doubled our total of new downloads from May! However, this means that we now have 61 new games/demos that need feedback. And what's the best way to both offer feedback to developers and educate potential players on the quality of games? Reviews!

From now until Midnight UTC on August 15, we will be holding a review drive with the goal of reviewing all 61 demos/completed games submitted to RMN during June. If each game receives at least one review by August 15, everyone who submitted a review for this event will receive an achievement badge based on the number of reviews they submitted! (Check them out along the sidebar to the right.) You will also receive a raffle ticket via PM for each time you review one of the 61 games! (Check the Rules section for details.) For example, if you review 3 of the games, you will receive the achievement and three raffle tickets - but only if all 61 games are reviewed!



To enter and receive credit for this event, please do the following:
Step 1: Sign up for the event by clicking "Sign Up" at the top of the user list:



Step 2: Let us know which of the 61 games you are going to review by posting on this event page. (The list is below the Rules section on this page. Click "show" to view.)
Step 3: Write your review(s), keeping in mind our submission rules. Please make the reviews as insightful and engaging as possible! A member of staff may proofread the review for minor spelling and grammatical faults or inconsistencies.
Step 4: Submit your review(s) to the appropriate game page(s).



Be sure to include your score (if any) and an appropriate title:



Step 5: Wait for the review to be approved. It may take up to 24 hours. You might receive feedback on how to improve your review before approval.
Step 6: Submit the approved review to this event page by clicking the "submit" button on the top-right corner of the page.



Select the appropriate review from the list and submit!



Step 7: Repeat for each qualified review. To receive credit, each review must be submitted to this page by the August 15 deadline!
Step 8: Shortly before the raffle, I (Deckiller) will be issuing raffle tickets with numbers on them. You'll get one for each submitted review (up to 5 total). If your number is called during the raffle, you will win one of four possible...

A copy of RPG Maker VX Ace ($89.99 value!), courtesy of RMN
RPG Maker 3 Music Pack ($19.99 value!), courtesy of RPG Maker Web
A Modern Day Tiles Resource Pack ($6.99 value!), courtesy of Deckiller

If we meet our quota and end up holding the raffle (and I'm sure we will!), then it will likely take place on or near August 20. There will be a little twist involved with the raffle announcement: I think you'll like it!



IMPORTANT: Users must sign up for this event and submit their reviews to this event page to receive credit. Make sure to submit each review: the event page allows multiple submissions.
One (1) achievement will be issued to each user, and it will be based on the number of reviews he/she submitted. Achievements will be issued only if all 61 games have at least 1 review by the deadline. You don't have to review all 61 yourself, of course: that would be insane!
You will still receive the achievement and a raffle ticket even if the game has already been reviewed. It just has to be an approved, submitted review for a game on this list. This means you can review as many games on the list as you'd like!
There is a maximum of five (5) raffle tickets per user; alt accounts are forbidden. The raffle will be held only if all 61 games receive at least one review. We want to make sure nobody is neglected!
You can win multiple prizes, but the same raffle number will not be selected twice. To have a shot at multiple prizes, you must review multiple games.
Raffle tickets will contain a number and description of the raffle; they will be sent via PM shortly after the event ends on August 15. Staff will keep track of raffle numbers. Tickets cannot be exchanged or donated to other users.
Reviews are subject to approval per normal RMN procedures; if your review is denied, improve it and resubmit! Staff reserves the right to deny any review based on the Submission Rules. We are hoping for high quality reviews!
All games on this list (currently 61) must be reviewed for achievements to be issued and for the raffle to occur. This list may expand if other qualified games have been neglected.
The deadline is August 15, 2012, at Midnight UTC. Reviews must be submitted to this page by this point. To allow yourself some flexibility, make sure your reviews are submitted for approval by August 13.
If you are banned from RMN, your ticket(s) will be voided.
All of RMN's normal policies and procedures apply.
I (Deckiller) reserve the right to change the rules if necessary...except the one where he's excluded from the raffle no matter how many reviews he does. ;) (This includes the right to extend the deadline if all 61 games are not reviewed by August 15.)



Here is a list of the 61 games, as well as: (1) who has already reviewed it, and (2) who will be reviewing it. Let's divide and conquer as a team! You can review a game that's already been reviewed, but please try to prioritize the games without a review to ensure that we meet our goal. To receive credit, you must submit the review(s) to this event page once the review is approved! If your game should be listed here, PM me and I'll include it if it qualifies! Similarly, let me know if you don't want your game on this list.

You can submit more than one review to this event page. So Go! Go! Go!

I'll submit a review for Combat Specialists.
Caz, Muninn and Marrend, you guys are machines.
My Shards of Xar review finally got accepted after 2 denials! ... just goes to show I need to work on my writing skills.

I'm grateful to those that made the NaGaDeMo review drive possible because I got my game reviewed twice already. I don't think I'd see that happening without this event.
At least not this quickly.
I need to find ways to write my reviews a lot faster x-D

Just submitted my review for Ethereal Heart, putting me at 8 reviews thus far. I must have that 20+ achievement.. I MUST!

I think Caz pointed this out earlier, but most of these games are short demos. It's the "Complete" games that slow people down. Or huge downloads, like Eyes of the Forest.

Sorry, Marcus, had to make that comment.

Though, now that I've said that, there is one more thing I should do before I consider coming back to this...

Lol yeah... Revelation Chronicles: Edel Sky took me 5-ish to complete. And I had to stop playing it x-(
(Though some of this game's padding was pissing me off)
Err, I seem to have discovered a monochrome malfunction, and I'm not sure if it is my fault:

RGSS202E.dll could not be found

You need the RTP to play the game.

Well, my last review got approved faster than I thought it would and I have a lot of free time coming up, so I guess I'll sign up for:

Monochrome
Shoot at this rate I wouldn't be surprised if they decide to hold the raffle early. Better get on the ball if I want to get a good achievement.

I think they had a different plan...

author=Deckiller
Just a hint: if we review all 60 entries early, I'll be extending the pool of games to include the Nugget Crash Course entries. They won't be mandatory; we'll still hold the raffle regardless of how many Crash Course entries are reviewed. It'll just be a bonus in case you want to go for an achievement or a raffle ticket. (Remember, maximum of 5 raffle tickets per user.)
I'm still working on my review. Want to make sure I play as much of the game as possible before I decide it's finished.
