Description


It's that time of the year again! That's right, it's rpgmaker.net's 5th birthday and to celebrate this momentous occasion we're going to be having ourselves a nice little game-making bash.

So on June 3rd, 2012, you are cordially invited to participate in RMN's 5th birthday celebration: a 5-hour game-making event. Once the theme is revealed at midnight UTC on June 3rd, users will have a block of 5 hours in which to make a game (any block of 5 hours of the day's 24) and the contest will officially close at 11:59pm UTC on June 3rd. As usual with short time-frame events, we'll be relying on the “honor system” ("honour system" for our European brethren), meaning, please don't take it too seriously and/or cheat: this is just for fun.


That said, participants will receive a tasty slice of birthday achievement and the winner of the event will walk away with the coveted 5-year birthday cake*. They will also receive a copy of RPG Maker 3 Music Pack ($20 value!)


  • There are no restrictions on engine or graphics
  • The theme will be announced at midnight UTC on June 3rd
  • The 24 hour period will be for June 3rd UTC; you can use any block of 5 hours in this time-frame. We're going by the “honor system” here, so please be honorable.
  • As with all of the short events, you're not expected to make something fantastic or srs bsns. Hell, don't even worry too much about finishing; the entries usually end up being pretty terrible and a lot of fun, so take this as a chance to cut loose your usual game-dev hangups and do something for the hell of it. You can always continue the project after the event if you like it.
  • Most of all, have fun!




"Badaptations"

Bad video game adaptations of TV shows, movies, songs, comics, etc. You can't make an adaptation of another video game, though!

Remember: you have 5 hours, spent between now and 11:59pm UTC, to make your game!

Remember: "If there is good reason to suspect you used entire swathes of content that you prepared for another game to make your entry, you likely won't win."



Winners to be determined! All participants who submit a game will receive the Dino Achievement. The judges will choose the official winner of the event; he or she will receive the Fred Flinstone Achievement. After the event concludes, there will also be a voting period for the User's Choice winner; this fan favorite will win the Barney Rubble Achievement.


So please, come down and join the party on June 3rd and see what you can do in 5 hours to mark 5 years of RMN history.

Happy 5th Birthday, RMN! :D

*Cake is actually just pixels, makerscore and kentona’s tears.

I Am Judging You

Woah, I've been hoping for a contest lately (even though I'm working on a billion other projects atm). I'll sign up but my participation will depend entirely on the severity of my hangover that day.

P.S. Who are the judges?
Has it been a year already? How time flies.
I may call in sick for work that day to participate >:3 Depends how off-guard the theme catches me.

Judges are yet to be determined. If we are in a bind, I am going to be the fallback judge (but that's a scary thought!)
Why is Barney worth less MS than Fred everybody knows Barney is way cooler

Yeah, I can't believe it's already been a year!
Alright I will try this. Five hours to make a game...

I guess I'll spend one hour on graphics, three hours to make the game and one hour to test it.

Barney is (now) the Fan Favorite achievement.
But now Dino > Fred.

Why was Fred Flintstone angry after the earthquake? Because he found Rubble on top of his wife.

Five hours? I dunno. Might be possible to do this. Might not be. I suppose it depends on how the theme strikes my muse.


*Edit: Forget this idea! I'd rather see if I can't finish off a project for National Game Development Month!

and kentona's tears !?! what happen?
cool, I want to see what Gourd will do.
Considering what I was able to put together in 5 hours today, I suspect I could do something pretty decent for this, if I have time/remember. I will (hopefully) give it a shot.
I'd like to give it a shot. I am trying to work on a full fledged game right now, but I would like to show what I got. I wonder what I can make in five hours. This is going to be fun. So count me in on attempting this, if the themes not to hard lol. Can't wait to see what it is.

Consider: If you submit something for this, you get an achievement which has an icon, and an icon contains pixels. My guess is that the "kentona's tears" reference is about how sad some entries are bound to be. Markerscore would be earned by both submitting something to the site, and submitting something for this event.

I already have a pretty thorough plan in my head of what I'm doing. I sure hope you guys like game shows.
Oh and by the way, my team name is going to be "A Hill Reborn" and I'm using Rpg Maker VX.

Edit: Nvm This is my first time signing up for this and I didn't notice the sign-up icon on top. Sry

Thanks, MrChearlie. I do too, chances are I won't finish though. (And I'm the only one using AGS...)
