Description

Summer, with fields of wheat and grain blowing in the gentle breeze. Warmth that sinks into the skin making days long and lazy, perfect for swimming and indulging in frozen treats.

Autumn, full of gusty breezes and warm afternoons. Turning paths to gold as leaves fall like a riotously coloured shower, leaving the trees bare of their foliage, stark against the sky.

Winter, with frozen evenings spent huddled around an open flame, telling tales of the past and future to loved ones, a decorated tree listening in from the corner, it's tiny lights twinkling between leaves of green.

Spring, bursting with new life as the long sleep ends and nature returns ten-fold to rejoice with explosions of colour as all kinds of new plants turn their faces up to catch the sweet drops of fresh rain.

The four seasons are wonderful times full of amazing moments and this event focuses on them. There will be a total of five of these events over the course of the next few years. Each of the first four events will have you focus on a different complete game based on a season you didn't do before, allowing you to collect all four of the seasonal badges. The fifth will be a game where you will use all four seasons in a game. Keep an eye out for these events if you want to nab every badge!


Your aim this time - to make a game that uses one of these seasons as a main inspiration. They can be represented in different ways - surviving the frozen wilds, a story set in autumn following the death of a character, a visual novel with spring colours as the palette... the use is up to you, as long as it's easy to tell which season has been referenced.



Rules!
- You have three weeks in which to make the game.
- You may use any engine.
- You may use resources you've used in the past, however the game itself needs to be made within the three week period. That is, if you made custom resources for a game you may use those, however you can't just take an old game and finish it off for the event.
- The games must have an accepted game page. The game page must be accepted before Friday the 1st of June.
- Event begins on Saturday the 12th of May and ends at Midnight, Sunday the 3rd of June.
- Create a game based on a season. You must only use one season! This is for reasons that shall become apparent in due time.


Rewards
Each person who took part will receive a badge worth 10 MS.
Each person who completed a game will receive a badge worth 75 MS, themed around the season they drew inspiration from.



To reiterate - the season you choose doesn't have to be the season the game is set in but it needs to be a large component of the game, and easily recognisable as such.

The event date says it starts tomorrow though? I'm kinda confused.

Ohhh it must be the timezone settings i guess.

All Four Seasons.. in about 30 seconds!
I made this to show how you can use the "Change Map Tileset" function effectively.

Okay, great, but please only use one season in your games for this.
If I can think of a good angle I want to exploit, and a story that works with a seasonal theme, I might jump on this.

For now I'm drawing a blank. :(

*sits on log* Think think, think think.

I would have more makerscore If I did things.

I just joined to create a witty team title. I may or may not do anything for this.
Probably not ;-;
Caz obviously has the best team title!

"Team Not-Appearing-in-this-Event" would be give me a chuckle. However, "Summer-ner of Winterkill" strikes my irony chords more. The combination of Final Fantasy 10 reference and World of Xeen reference is just perfect.


If, you know, I was making a thing for this.
Well, get to it then. ;p
Oh man, my only idea is likely to be terrible. XD

To save on mapping time, I might try semi-shuffled dungeon floors so that 5-7 floors can be turned into a semi-random 20 floor dungeons that get tougher as you go via variables.

While this does serve the "Go in, get resources in limited inventory space, get out, prepare for the coming disaster" idea pretty well...I get the feeling this won't play super well.

While I like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, the fact that davenport submitted a game barely three days after the event began is fishy. Moreso because it says "version 2.48".

And I've barely made three maps so far and no game mechanics yet.
Yeah, it won't be counted. :/
So, I'm joining this to prove myself and to Muffle that I can make a good game. If anyone feels like joining me in this endeavour you're welcome.
I'm looking for:
-Sprite artist
-Bust artist
-Composer

I hope we can all have fun while making these games! ^_^
Btw, my game will be winter based and will be the best winter game, damn it!

Not too out of the ordinary for Davenport.

just done, thank you :")
In the rules, it says that a game page has to be accepted by June 1st, but my game isn't finished yet. Am I allowed to create a game page for a game that is still under construction?

Of course! We welcome/accept games in various states of completion, whither they are just starting out, have a playable demo, or complete!
Hi there guys!
Does anyone of you know, how much time it's needed to accept a gamepage?
