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.

Well I made it in, just in time.

It wasn't the game I set out to make those weeks ago but I got there in the end, thank you everyone for your support.

Can't wait to play some of these but first sleep, thank goodness it's a training day tomorrow.

If anyone feel like playing a broken mess of a DEMO, feel free to give my entry a try :D
Well I was so damn close to finishing my game, one level left and I got lost on other things. I can't upload what I have can I or is it to late?
*EDIT* I didn't mean to post that twice something glitched up on me.

GUUUUUYSS!!!
My game has a big bug!!! I noticed only now!!! Can I update the version with the correct one?!
Otherwise it won't be playable... T^T
Not yet, Magik. Yours isn't the only one broken, lemme tell you what. XD

I'll be streaming what is there of the games in the next day or so, on RMN's Youtube channel. I'll drop and link and time here and in the Discord when I've pinned it down.

Oh okay... Well, if it isn't the only one, it's not that embarrassing... I guess? Nevertheless it's a shame that because of that bug you won't be able to play it completely... T^T

Looking forward to it! >u<
I mean, mine has a bug that can trap you right at the start.. or the end, depending on when you run into it. Also, a bug that makes it impossible to finish the game. You're in good company. XD

It's sad that you also got such a bug, but at the same time I'm glad someone's making me company >u<
OH GOD I READ THE DATE WRONG AAAAA

I probably fucked up RTP, which wouldn't be a problem, except I used Krosk's file skip script, which means if you don't have RTP, you also won't have sound effects...

Hey Liberty, I just watched that. =)
oh.. that's not what I want to tell you.
What I want to tell you is I just found a big bug in my game that'll stop you from getting the ending. can you redownload my game?
Nope. It's fine, you can update your games now but I'm playing the buggy-ass versions so your game is in good company. No worries!
