Description

So, in between arguing about menu systems, putting the 40-hour JRPG you're making on hiatus for the sixth time, and posting pictures of women pointing accusingly at cats sitting at dinner tables on the RMN Discord server, you played about a dozen RPG Maker games this year. Most of them sucked, a few stood out in certain areas, and one or two were really legitimately good. That's how it goes.

But you didn't tell anyone!

You kept it to yourself! You selfish jerk! You didn't nominate them for Misaos or write reviews or anything! You probably didn't even leave a comment! And now nobody else knows whether they're any good or not!

There are 61 games right now which were completed in 2019, are eligible for Misaos, but have no reviews.

Here is a list of games you can review!

The first 61 games in this list - the first four pages, and the first game on the fifth page - are all of the unreviewed noncommercial games which were completed in 2019. And actually I think there's one game in there that has a review with no rating, but whatever. We'll count that one too.

Everything after that is older, and thus not eligible. Don't be going to page seven of this list and reviewing something. It won't count.

Your mission - your Misaossion, as it were - is to find games on that list, review them, and submit the reviews by the end of November. And then, if you think the game actually did a good job at something, nominate it for a Misao by clicking the little "Nominate" button on the game page with the award ribbon.

A game doesn't have to be the best game of the year for you to nominate it for a Misao. There are lots of Misao categories, ranging from "Best Game Title" to "Best Use of Owls." It doesn't even have to be the game you would personally choose to win the category you're nominating it for. It just has to do something neat enough that you think it's worth being in the running, so people can vote on it.

Technically, the thing you have to do to get an achievement for this event is just to review a game. Misao nominations are anonymous. But please do them anyway!


RULES

  • Review at least one non-commercial game which was completed in 2019, and which doesn't already have a review.
  • If you review the same game as someone else, that's fine, you can both get credit, as long as it was on this list at the start of the month.
  • If you review a game that is completed mid-November, that's fine too, and you can also get credit for that.
  • It is the "Date Completed" in the game's sidebar that matters for eligibility. Not the date of the last update, the last blog post, or the most recent download.
  • The reviews need to be accepted to the site - which means they need to abide by the review rules.
  • The event ends at midnight UTC, November 30, 2019. Your review must be submitted to the event by then.
  • If you share at least one of your reviews on any social media platform, and provide a link in the event comments to prove you did so, you get another 5 makerscore for free.

One.

And oh.. I don't do social media. Is that badge forever lost or may I pester someone else to link it for my purpose? True indecency.

I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

Hmm. The goal of the social media badge is for you to share other people's RPG Maker games with the public, so more people hear about those games and potentially play them.

If you literally have no account on any social media platform (not even Facebook?) and you get your brother to do it instead, then sure, I guess that fulfills the same purpose.

My goal with this badge is definitely NOT to get people on rpgmaker.net to start using social media; that's not a fate I would wish on anyone. My goal is to get people on social media to start using rpgmaker.net.
Oops, double post.

Edit: Well, at least I can give it some use because I was wondering... There's a Misao for "Most Promising Demo", and I want to review and nominate a game for that. But the rules of the event only mention completed games? So... that review won't count?

Thank you.
And yes, I absolutely agree. It's the greatest blessing to be outside that box, imho. (and yes, that includes having dodged facebook. It feels great.)
Cool.

That review and nomination is definitely appreciated, and the review will still earn you makerscore like normal. But this event is focused on reviewing completed games from this year, so it won't count for the event.

I haven't noticed this till now.
Huh. You know, maybe I will jump on this, it's been too long since I reviewed a game for another user.

Just @ me next time, JEEZ! XD
