Description

This has been a big year for the RPG Maker series, with the release of RPG Maker 2000 and RPG Maker 2003, as well as the news of RPG Maker MV coming in the future! As such, we've held a fair amount of RM-only events. But what about the other engines out there? There's a lot of them and with the recent Humble Bundle packs and new releases, they haven't seen much time in the spotlight in the site.

Thus, this time we're going to even the score - No RPG Maker event is a go!



Make a game during the month of October in an engine that is not part of the RPG Maker series.



- Make and release a project with-in the month of October, 2015.
- Only non-RM engines are allowed.
- No teams. (Though you can get people to help you, there's only a single prize and divvying it up would be quite difficult.)
- Only one per person.
- RM-clone engines are not allowed. It's a challenge people! Embrace it!
- You may release a demo or full game, but you an only win first prize with a full game. (Other prizes can be won with demos, though.)
- Games must have at least 10-20 minutes of game time.
- You cannot use an old game as a base, though you can certainly remake a game in a different engine. And pre-made resources are fine.
- Rips, edits, RTP and custom are all good.


All games must be submitted to the event page by the 31st of October, 11:59 GMT.

You may start brainstorming but nothing else until the 1st of October.

There will be NO extensions so plan your time wisely and make prayers to the Gods of Fate.




The First Place prize will be a 3D printed coin with the RMN logo on one side and your username on the other. The winner will also receive a badge and 80MS. Only a full game can win this prize.

2nd Place will receive a badge and 60MS.

3rd Place will receive a badge and 40MS.

All others will receive a badge and 25MS.



Placings will be picked by vote, but only votes by those who have been on the site before the competition started will count, so calling on tumblr or reddit to swing you to win won't work.


For those who don't recall (or know) we do have an engines page in case you've no idea where to start. You can also start checking out the different engines right away. Dive on in!


To sumbit:
Create a game page for your game, abiding by the rules of the site. It is highly recommended that you do this at least a few days before the end of the event!

Upload your game to the gamepage and then click the Submit button at the top of this page. From there you can choose the download you mean to submit.

This must all be done before the end date of the competition.



FAQ

Is RPG Toolkit taken as a clone engine?
I'm gonna go with yes and say 'Go challenge yourself, mate'. There's a lot of engines out there. We have a huge list of them on the engines page and a bunch of them are free.

Does it have to cooperate with Windows 7?
Make it compatible with at least Windows XP and 7. If people can't play your game they can't vote for it after all. Also, yes, PC Master race.

Will there be any theme or more guidelines given?
There might be additions to the guidelines depending on questions asked, though that will be more clarification. No theme.

So I can start working on ma gam right now?
Is it October yet? The start and end dates are shown in the top-right corner of the page, under the submit and management buttons. You can mess around to get used to an engine, but no actually making a start on your game. Brainstorming is fine, though. No concrete work!

No way, an actual physical prize? Neat.

I have no idea what I'm gonna do, how I'm gonna do it, or if it will even get done.
I just realised you can't read names in the grey. Oops! I'll get onto fixing that. XD

That's a lot better. ^.^

Man, another fun event that I will be missing out!

Anyway, good luck to everyone!

Thanks for answers,
I will gladly challenge myself as Toolkit is maybe the most unintuitive engine with graphics ever made.

Edit: I will go with Construct Classic or Stencyl or Game Maker... Luckily I have these days to make the decision.

Then I guess I won't be dusting off the ol' C64...
This is cool. I could use Delphi.

My mind jumps to Unlimited Adventures for this particular event, but, I'm pretty sure any game made with it would also need DOSBox, or other DOS emulator.

I also have no clue about how that engine handles it's "RTP". It has also been some time since I've even bothered with it, so, this whole idea could be a really huge no-go to begin with.

I wonder if I could be an asshole and make a game in the Knytt Stories level editor. That's technically an engine, after all!

I'm probably gonna fool with Construct first and foremost though.

I wonder if I could finish my Renpy game by this date. I would have to really push it. Is there a MS for submitting a game page (I guess not.) But I don't really qualify because I started the game a little after submitting Othello.

Whose idea was this? What brought about this event?
Interesting idea for sure.

Edit:

I wonder if you should also ban GG Maker? (or the free version of that. Since your not including RPG Tool Kit.) Don't know how similar it is to RPG Maker though.

Expecting a damn lot of Mario Games :(

This is an awesome event. I won't have a chance to enter but I'll be excited to see what comes of it.
Well, I don 't noRM-ally use anything more complicated than RPG Maker, but I guess a physical RMN thing prize is a good enough reason to learn some Gam Makker!

I don't have many options, but I could throw together a rudimentary HTML choose your own adventure game.

Time to brush up on either Stencyl or Multimedia Fusion. I've always wanted to make a platformer game with either of those.

This seems like an awesome event idea!
