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!

Hotbunkin' in Hyrule seems like a pretty decent name for a game. Or at least a song.
I should lay down.

There's nothin wrong with a man sleepin with his uncle yo!
Ok fine after reading this I kinda gave up on thinking sleeping with family members is an innocent thing.
Anyway, get well soon Mirak! And also I'm probably not gonna end up doing anything, turns out making visual novels is too hard for me. I might just finish off the corpse party parody I was making for this(I didn't do anything other than an intro anyway).

I decided to move my project to FlashPunk. I've never used ActionScript before and I haven't relied on Cody The Code since fourteen (I couldn't catch up with MySQL and that ended my ambitions) and I don't have any time at all to work on my game. So, I'm pretty skeptical about my ability to finish these four levels I planned for it.
But I wanna finish it as i think that the story is engaging and I wanna finish shmup too (I left it and started working on a casual stealth game).
I'm just leaving a reminder for you guys to make sure your game pages are up and at the ready. There's about 11 or so days left, but better to get in early!

This is going to suck. My screenshots probably don't qualify but whatever i'll try making a gamepage tomorrow.
I've got full positional audio working, loading from opus audio files. That's just about the best possible setup I can imagine for audio. I've also got menus and some more advanced UI features working.

I should be on track to actually have a game (well, at least a demo) by Halloween. It helps that it's not story-driven, so the amount of content I need to create is fairly low.
Can we use Super Mario Maker as our engine? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Oh, the FAQ says otherwise.
Does it? I thought I said that was fine.

Yeah, SMBX should be just fine. I thought he was simply worried that everyone would use SMBX.
Does it have to be an RPG? Thanks!

Nope, this is a NON RPG MAKER event. You can do anything you want as long as you do not use rpg maker

i'm going to have to leave this event... i really tried hard to make something on time, but school things came up and..yeah. excited to see all the submitted entries tho.
I've been struggling to get simple game stuff to work in Game Maker all this time so I have no screenshots for the game page D: - Guess today is an art day!
