Description

YOU ALL HAVE FALLEN PREY TO MY EVIL PLANS AGAIN! Everyone has TWO weeks (and some change) to make a short game using not one, but TWO randomly given theme elements from THIS POST!

You will get one randomly selected image, as well as one randomly selected word to implement into your game in some way!

SIGNUPS WILL CLOSE ON 5/3 4PM CST!

HOW IT WORKS:
Sign up for the event. One person only!

I'll send you one randomly selected image and word to use as the theme of your game. There's no rules for what you use, use rips, custom, whatever you like! Build with your favorite engine! Feel free to work on/collect assets for your game before the start date, just don't actually start putting your game together until the beginning date of 5/3 at 4pm CST. New games only, don't dig out your dusty stuff and try to polish it up!

THERE'S ANOTHER NEW FEATURE - ONE TIME REROLL!
That's right folks, I'm giving people a one time chance to reroll their theme if they are truly unhappy with their image/word result from the initial roll. Use it wisely!

There are two nifty makerscore rewards for this game, one that goes to those who make a game demo, and those who submit a finished game!
Submit your finished game to the event page before the cutoff date, no extensions!(WELP I GUESS I LIED ABOUT NO EXTENSIONS)

A NOTE ABOUT THE IMAGES - The image theme will be handled very loosely to allow for creative freedom. I'll use this image as an example;


Now say for example you got the above picture. The theme included could be as vague or deep as you like, it could be about a forest, a dad and his kid, a pair of hunters, rifles, a road sign, a busted car, ANYTHING related to the image! Just because you have something you feel would be impossible to work with, do not expect us to judge you for thinking outside the box on some extreme tangent just because it doesn't match the image theme to the pixel. It's about fun! Go nuts!

MORE NOTES - We had a bit of a spat last event about words used, just laying this here now, I reserve the right to accept or deny any images/words used in the roulette post if I deem they aren't worthy of the Theme Roulette roster. ~Illy

EDIT - Due to popular demand, the event deadline has been extended to the 24th. No more extensions, so get your submissions in!

I'm really, really bad at keeping dead lines and the worst artist ever ...

So what's the worst that can happen?
I've got some free time coming up. Count me in.
Anyone gonna make a serious project? Just being curious here.

Well, you know... Anything that's not a meme/nonsense game.
A game with an actual story and characters. You know what I mean?

What can happen? Probably a lot of fun and a finished/semi finished game :D

I want to make a serious game not just a joke game, but we'll see if I'll manage to finish.

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

everything I make is serious, considering I am actually making it instead of sitting around playing games which probably would be more fun.
Mine will probably be more serious than not.
My game is a non joke game, but it's going to be witty and cute.

Looking forward to it.
I, too, will be trying to deliver something entertaining. Not sure how far I'll get within the time-frame ...
Glad to hear that there is still people trying to make good games out of events like this. Looking forward to play all of your "serious" games. Finished or unfinished, it doesn't matter.

I wish you all good luck.

I've done a lot of thinking about my theme, and I think I'm gonna reroll.

My game's gonna be quasi-serious, and maybe a sequel to my one completed game here so far?

Maybe somewhat serious? Not sure of a lot of things right now, actually. Like, my image/word combo suggests to me that I could go the RPG route, and I've a few edits to the RTP planned.

More than that, it's a big question mark.
Guys, I have a question. The word that we get, does it have to do something with the story? Or is it ok, if (for example) it's just in the game's title?

It's not really a competition, but I would recommend you to get creative. Mostly you should use both the word and the picture to inspire your game. That can be its aesthetic, story, themes, mechanics. It's up to you how you decide to tie it in. Using them for something cosmetic like name only would be lazy
