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!

4! 4 finished projects! Ah-ah-ah!


Wow... ALREADY?!! O.O
Congrats to you and to everyone who have already finished! >u<

I'm working like there's no tomorrow but free time is scarce and the deadline is getting closer, and closer, and closer... ;/


Same here... I feel the pressure closing on meeeee T^T

Btw, congrats to those who already finished! You guys are the best. It's never easy to release complete, finished stuff.


That's right... You all have my respect... since I never finished a project until now... *cries in a corner*
Yeah I'm probably not going to focus much on this, other projects need my attention.

I knew I should have playtested more. Found some passibility issues, and fixed Lock On with the 'zuke. Updating the entry as I write.

That's the wisest advice I've had, hahaha.
I will certainly do that.

So Retro had found a game-breaking bug during his play of my game. As such I reuploaded the EXE file, including RTP and with the bug fixed.
Phew...looks like I should be able to finish up my contest entry by tonight. Nothing fancy, but I think it ended up better than I was expecting. Now if only I could make this much progress on my actual projects lol ...

WORD - Escape

My contest entry is finally complete and submitted. I hope it'll be seen as
somewhat enjoyable ^^

No worries, GreisDomain. I'll make sure to upload everyones themes (for those that turned in something) when we hit the deadline.
I imagined that'd be the case ^^ I'm just excited to have actually completed a project. Hopefully I can make similar progress on future works.

Congrats on your finishing a project Greis! ^-^
I hope you can finish more projects in the future.
Thanks! I've been trying to be productive as of late. Hoping I'll have something game page worthy by this year lol

For those inclined, I am attempting to formulate a playlist of the entries that have gamepages.

I don't yet have a game page for it. But I will make one once the thing is finished and submitted. (Surprisingly I'm almost there ...)

EDIT: The deed is done. I've submitted a game page, too.

As I said on Discord, I won't have enough time to finish making my game due to IRL events. That's why I left the event.
I might get back to the game and finish it, but not now.

That's too bad to hear Fflo, I hope get to finish your game at a later date. It's nice to see that there have been many entries submitted already! I wish to see at last half of the participants finish or at least upload a demo, that would be very nice.
I really hope to be able to post at least a demo...
