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.

Hi there guys!
Does anyone of you know, how much time it's needed to accept a gamepage?


Libby has a specific day that she goes through the queue I think. She said the deadline for gamepages was june 1 so that might be when she's gonna do it.

Ah okay! Thanks for answering!
I'll be sure to check on the pages at the deadline for them so that peeps have a chance to get theirs in. Just remember to get them in before midnight of the 1st.

If there is an issue with the game page I will PM the dev and try to get them sorted asap, but I'll be checking at least once more before that date (Wednesday, likely) so getting it in sooner rather than later is for the best just in case.

It's good to hear that you will take a look before the date! Thanks for that! Actually I already made mine 3 days ago (I think?), I thought that there was a problem with it, therefore it was still pending. But now I know that maybe it's because you still didn't check them.

Oh man, am I the only one who can feel the excitement of submitting a game page after a long time of not submitting anything significant to the site?

Well guys... I had every intention of finishing a game in time, but the company I work for had other plans for me this month. I got as far as concept, and a couple of maps, but otherwise a totally unplayable game. I'll have to settle for checking out the games from the other teams and writing reviews.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Aww man, sad to hear that. I will probably only release a demo. (No badge for me ;-;) But I hope you can enjoy all the entries for the event and that you can give some valuable feedback to the people that manage to make it!
Hi guys! Should we post our game here, or in our gamepages?

I'm so happy that you asked this, I completely forgot that we also had to submit the game to the event page itself.

I think I won't be able to myself. A lot of things happened these last weeks that didn't allow me to keep on working on the game properly. I have the first section of the game playable but in no way I'm gonna release a demo with just that. Sorry ;|

I will still try to carry on in order to release it in time for the event but... eh.

Still, good luck Make_it_magiK and everyone else. Do your best!
