Description

Friday the 13th is coming up and it coincides with the date of the next Release Something! Day! Talk about a coincidence!

So, 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! Day used to be a regularly occurring event in the days of yore, back when the community had a sticky issue of never releasing any games or demos (because perfectionists I guess?). RS!D 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.



What kinds of things can be shown? 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). Let the feedback work for you. Although, there are some limitations to RMN's event profile - only game downloads can be submitted to the "official" event submission. But that's okay! I will manually compile all of the other types of submissions and update the event page.

So, 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. There will even be a podcast covering the releases.



1. If you are posting a game demo or download, make a Gameprofile (if you haven't already), upload the file, and submit the download to this event (by clicking the Submit button in the upper left)
2. If you are posting other media (like screenshots or music or graphics or videos) submit it to the site like normal and then post a link to it in the comments



There will be a badge worth 10 MS for releasing something. Best feedback givers will also get a badge worth 20 MS. Because the feedback is what counts this time.

There might even be a podcast!

Reserving this post for updates!

A challenge, eh? If you wanna throw hands, I'll throw hands!!

I don't know if I can finish a first playable for my current game in a week, but I'll sure as hell try \o/
I'll probably release a slew of screenshots and maybe some music on the project I've been working on. I've been meaning to set up a game page and tumblr for it, but advertising is such a drag. It's a bunch of work that doesn't make the game developed any faster, but, yeah. Maybe this is the push I need to actually do that.
Sweet! I'm making a more-or-less last minute song for Last Word. It'd be nice have backfeed. I'll try to pull a Pay It Forward by drinkfronting at least three others.
This is amazingly timed. I've been working on my new project for a while now. I'm making a game to accompany that battle system I started setting up this past August. I'm in the middle of event programming the system right now. I was thinking this past week about wanting to use a release something or some kind of event where I can show it, but thought there wouldn't be one in time... I have spring break starting right now, and this event pops up. WOW, that's a great opportunity.

I'll definitely be putting up a demo for my battle system and other things I have done for this event. Wow, this is great timing. I might show something from Perspective Extended Edition as well, if we get mapping done over break.

This is perfect, I am waaaaay overdue on my Holmes vs Moriarty Issue 2 work.
I'll try to finish the second story by the 13th and post it as an Article. That work?
ARGH I'm planning to release something, but it's a visual novel for NANORENO that I'm going to spend the rest of the month on!

Next time!

I look forward to seeing what everybody makes!

I was wondering, did 2013's Release Something entries ever get judged or anything? The achievements/badges were never given out either, if I remember right. That doesn't really motivate me to participate in this one, even if I somehow had enough time to figure out how to get Catharsis out of a completely unplayable state before the deadline, haha.

hahah fuck! Really?

Well, I am running this one so you can be rest assured that I will be doling out the achievements in a timely manner like I always do for my events. I've got a pretty good track record for that.

Coolio,
I have something something. Time to make some gamepages.

Can be an event released (like unofficial event)?

If this were a bit earlier, I might have been able to stave off Legacy Reborn for this. As it stands, I guess I could aim for Konae's Investigations.

Which is the game I submitted for the 2013's Release Something? Darigaaz, that's just plain sickening.

*Edit: Wait a sec. Myraid Cypher?

Yeah! Myriad Cypher isn't done, right, so you still have plenty to release for that!
I'm finally able to work on my project back in 2013 (it was on hiatus), can I still submit my project? (demo)

Well, I know Ebeth is in FINALS HELL, and won't be able to do anything with Myriad Cypher until after this event concludes. Glasses and Jeroen... I should probably try to contact them, and see if their schedules align with this.

Konae's Investigations would then be my back-up plan if Myriad Cypher is a no-go.
