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 six 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. The sixth will be a second-chance event where you can finish off games from the previous events in order to get the badges you missed out on during that time. 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 the 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. And no, just having the name of a season in the title doesn't count!



Rules!
- You have one month in which to make the game.
- You may use any engine.
- You may use any resources you've used in the past, however, the game itself needs to be made within the month period. That is; if you made custom resources for a game in the past 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 11th of January.
- Event begins on Saturday the 15th of December and ends at Midnight, Sunday the 13th of January.
- Create a game based on a season. You must only use one season!
- You may not use a season that you have used in a previous Seasons of RMN event!


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.

This time I do have an idea. I can't wait. :)
It says we have a month and then it starts on the 15th and ends on the 7th. I assume this is just because of the inevitable extension that will happen. But instead of making it a month and a week. The event just ends a week early so the extension will make it a full month.

Smart thinking.

Not really here. I signed up for posts.

On second thought I might not have time to make a game for this event. I have a lot to polish in one of my games. But I will still in just in case.

>.> Mathed. There's a reason we banned Calculators. Too OP.

It'll be a bit before I can solely work on Seasons, but it should be fairly soon hehe.

There's no extra week, so you'd better plan for just a month because I'm not going to be giving out more time.
Yay!!! I can finally join in a season event! <3 ^_^ Vacation is closing soon, so I'll more free time to work on something! :D I picked Autumn for something a little different than my usual "Spring-y" games. xD :D

I finally have the time to make a thing.

Maybe.
Oops! seems like I got the answer already! XD Sorry for the post >.<

EDIT:

If someone wishes to team up with me for an autumn game, feel free to PM me! ^_^ :D
I wouldn't mind teaming up... I hate mapping for any one out there that would like to throw together some maps and I can lay the rest of the stuff onto it. I don't mind what graphics we use... I've been wanting to do something with nes/gb graphics myself.

Have all the legal makers... not opposed to rips... etc etc.

Don't think about it. Just do it.
I am excited for this! I hope I can manage to finish this time, although college sucks and gives me only problems lately -.-
