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!

This event was a great idea. It pushed me into making my first game. Thank you Liberty!

I learned a lot in the building process and from feedback. So don't hesitate to comment and review.
Great job all! Here's a thread with the games: http://rpgmaker.net/forums/topics/19713

There'll be a week to play, then another week to vote. Winners will be announced on the 15/16th (depending on business). For now, just know that you all did a great job getting these games done and hearty congrats for trying something new!

(Also, the bgm is a piece that I composed quite a while ago, so that may also violate the 'during october only' constraint.)
The game's music counts as resources, so i don't think the bgm breaks the rule.
I've submitted my entry, but it's not really what I'd call complete and I'm not entirely sure that even meets the minimum length.

In other words, feel free to disqualify it if it doesn't meet standards.

So I'm not really sure about the time tables, I'm hoping I have a few hours to get a simple menu in the game and finish up some stuffs. Have I missed the deadline? It's still October here.

Looks like I have a few hours...nice.

On a side note, does anyone have any good links to royalty free sound effects?

Here you go!

As I expected, I simply won't finish before the deadline.

Good luck, everyone else!


Well, that's too bad. Still looking forward to the game though!

Don't forget to add your gamepages! There will be no extensions.

Finally submitted mine. Still not done yet though, since it doesn't have any CG.


Looking forward to playing it. :)

I'm not sure whether I'll finish in time or not. I'm really happy with what I have...but it's not done yet! :P
I hope you pull through and get it done! :)
Well, if I don't finish in time, I'll still finish the game, just not for the event. I've come very far, and I'm very close.


I hope so. I'm looking forward to playing it.
