Description

Time for a bit of randomness! Everyone has one week to make a short game using a randomly given theme from THIS POST!

SIGNUPS ARE CLOSED AS OF 7/13 3PM CST! Good luck with your themes!

HOW IT WORKS:
Sign up for the event. One person only!
You'll receive a randomly assigned theme from a list to build your game with.
Go nuts! There's no rules here, use rips, custom, whatever! Use whatever engine you're most comfortable with! (Creating custom assets before the event starts is perfectly fine, just don't start sticking things in your engine til go time.)
New games only! Event doesn't start for roughly a week, so take that time to sign up, get a theme, and gather your resources and ideas!
People who submit a finished game will receive a sweet makerscore award!
Submit your finished game to the event page before the cutoff date!

> Done! My game's in the old rpgmaker2003, so if you have trouble running it, talk to me.

Does this need a special font? The text is overlapping letters some places and has big gaps between letters in others (on Windows 10)

I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.

yes. yes it does.

you can give that a go. I have windows 10 at home and I think this is what I did...
Excellent, now it's not irritating for all the wrong reasons :)
It took me a while to find out what should I do with the theme but then I got it.

Those fonts are retarded. The FontChanger thing gives a nice Mincho and a very gothic-looking Gothic. The Mincho is what I'd recommend for visibility, unless you have a horror genre game. But anyway...

Weird. For some reason, it created a new folder instead of just copying over. Well anyway, this just shows for comparison, everything in the fonts_2k3 folder is superior.

Also, my game has a Fonts folder. Just install, find the Fonts folder and click on the fonts there. You'll get better fonts than in the utilities (I think I forgot the ttf files though).

Stand back. Artist at work. I paint with enthusiasm if not with talent.

Made it!

Better late than never, hopefully, but on my monitor at least the "Submit" button was almost impossible to see against the last few letters of the word "Roulette". Your mileage may vary.
Woo, uploaded Godslayers earlier today. Not sure if I will have the energy tomorrow to add more story bits. Overall pretty happy with it time and sick considered.
My entry's uploaded.

It's not very good, but, considering the time constraints I think it's acceptable. I really wound up having a lot of fun; glad I entered.
I've just got a final boss fight to finish up and then I can upload mine! Kind of worried about time as I have to head out and pick up my wedding rings today, then we have to go shopping for our daughter's bridesmaid dress and a little suit for our son.

I've already had to change the gameplay style to something more traditional and scope the project down due to work commitments, sorting some stuff at the doctors, and some drama with my dad but I'm determined to submit my entry today!
Didn't quite finish, was too busy. My theme was "Utopia" and the one I uploaded is a version of Utopia I guess. haha. An excuse for not finishing the game. The whole world is connected but no gameplay, no story but it can signify Utopia. I'll add in some gameplay later. :)

Dude. My game took maybe a day and a half to two days, and it's basically just four bosses with brief plot. This is better I think.

Uhhhh, what's with Godslayers? The thing is in a weird language.

Way ahead of you! I have 12 maps and 5 sprites and 26 lines of code.
Done at last. Man, that became... a lot longer than I'd initially planned ^.^'
To accommodate for those we don't have the time to play through it all I've added a save file right before the final boss so they can still play through the ending >.<)b

Time to get started I suppose
I... Forgot to supply the font in the game package xD
Sadly I don't have time to reupload the folder with font, but it's in my locker, named "Mini3x4.ttf" ^.^'

Turns out they're no longer in my locker... I'll see if I can find the time to upload them tomorrow morning, or otherwise tomorrow evening (CEST).
