Description



Some of you might not know what a Release Something! Day (RS!D) is. Basically, it's a day where you release something - anything! - in order to get feedback from the community.

Release Something! Days used to be a regularly occurring events back when the community had a problem with releasing stuff. It was created as a way to encourage sharing, collaboration, feedback, and content in the community. The aim is to truly try to capture the spirit of releasing something.

It is not about prepping a major release, or making something in a fury to have something new to show for the event. It is about showing your works-in-progress, getting feedback, and checking out what other people are working on. Like a snapshot of RMN's development community.


WHATTA RELEASING?
Music, tiles, sprites, graphics of any type, gameplay (videos of gameplay tests are good), tech demos, demos - even completed games (but don't strive for a finished product; that's not the point of RS!D).


GOTTA HAVE RULES
- To 'Release Something' just upload it straight to this event page. Sign in/up, then hit 'Submit' in the top right corner of the page and browse until you find the file you want to 'Release'. Voila~
- You can release more than one thing, but try to make sure it's something you've been working on at least recently (say, in the last month or so). Keep it relevant!
- Release all through the weekend.
- DO NOT steal the things you see here, if someone wants feedback on a resource or script. I doubt we have to say it, but it's worth saying just in case someone uses the 'but you never said...' shit to justify being a fuckwit.
- To give feedback, use @username and then hide tags (depending on length and amount of feedbacks in post. So, for example:

@Liberty
[hide]this page is pretty awesome but hey, I think you need to work on your logo making abilities because holy shit giiiiirl[/hide]



GOTTA GET GOODIES
There will be a badge worth 10 MS for releasing something. One per person.
Best feedback givers will also get a badge worth 20 MS. Because the feedback is what counts most!


Just to re-iterate: You are releasing something :ANYTHING: that you have done on your project over the last month or two. It can be a screenshot, a face image, planned dialogue, a script snippit, a resource, a demo (if you have one on hand) or a video of a system or anything like that. It does not have to be something that you whip up over this weekend - in fact, it's HIGHLY ENCOURAGED that you NOT do that! Just dump something in! Or a few somethings!


GO GO GO GO GO GO GOTTA GO FASTER!!!!

do you have something

release it
Have you been making a game? Have you made any progress of any kind over the past month on it? Show that shit off by whatever means to get feedback on it and just share in the event.

It does NOT have to be made over this weekend. It can be a screenshot, a video, a snippet of script, a map image, a sprite or piece of art or music or sound effect or SOMETHING that you have done over the past month or so on your project.

Take this thing (or things, if you intend to release more than one thing for feedback and sharesies) and sign up to the event. Then over the time frame (top-left corner - set your account to your time zone (under settings) and it'll show when the event starts and finishes in it) of the event, release your thing/s by hitting the Submit button (top left again) and uploading it.

Then give feedback in the comments here to other people's things.

I might try to pull off a little song to test my composing skills :P
plox read

I have to wait until tomorrow to release what I will, but if I get the artwork for the game finished maybe today, before my college class. I am excited :D

missed opportunity for "Release Something XIV: A Release Reborn"
I was gonna actually do
Release Something XIII-2 and then the next could be Release Something: Release Returns but Nessy pointed out that there were 14 Sonic games, so...


(I still liked my idea tho, but weird event page works too~ And Sanic was too good to pass up, once I found that gif)

Welp I read the whole thing and didn't see anythin about screenshots so yeah 0.o
The question was kinda dumb anyway, screenshots are somethin too after all
you might need your eyes checked, froggie XD

"Just to re-iterate: You are releasing something :ANYTHING: that you have done on your project over the last month or two. It can be a screenshot,..."


but yeah, basically anything works
It's gonna be a busy weekend for me so I went and uploaded a couple of things in case I don't get the chance later!
I don't think I may be able to release something, but I could give feedback. One question though: can you start giving feedback right now?

Also, I like the theme of the contest! XD

Eh, sure. GOTTA GO FAST AND FASTER AND AFATS
llan14, no, no, no, that song is WAY too modern to be used in a contest like this. I was thinking more along the lines of…this:



Wait what, I see entries but no ability to submit something?

Edit: Okay, now I do. Welp.
Man this is a brilliant idea! Who came up with this?
I have so much to show, but my CP won't boot up now. :-( I'll try to fix it in time though!
Hey, quick question – but can I submit a gamepage for this or does it have to be something that you’ve been working on in the past month or so instead? Either way’s good, regardless.

Woo my first RMN event. The stuff I submitted was stuff I've been working on during my two week break from RPG Making I started a week and a half ago. By two week break, I mean, oops.
The latter - if you have a demo or something, just upload it on the page using the Submit, instead of using a game page.

The way events are currently set up you can use either one option or another option, but not both, so I initially tried to add both game pages, media pages and the event uploader, but it would just default to the game page without the other two there, so I figured the event uploader worked for all three well enough. If you want to add the stuff to a gamepage or something later, that's fine, but use this event as a way to get feedback and then polish your stuff up a bit based on it. That is the whole idea behind it. ^.^)b

Just showing off what we've been doing and giving each other feedback.


@zds: don't sweat the timeline too much in this one (other events are stricter - a month or two back is fine). It was, uh, planned to start a little earlier but I thought it was next week and, well, it wasn't. XD 'Gotta go fast' works really well because that was my whole thing when making the event page.
