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 believe in you Cap, once you pick up RM and are making for 15 minutes you won't be able to put it down.

Yay 5 more days! Guess I can close RPG Maker and not crunch in order to finish.
I HAVE THE THING! THE THING IS HERE!

The thing has been played, the "Sleep Ending" and "Church Ending" obtained.

Cute stuffs, Ky. *thumbs up*

*Edit: I've also played a bit of Windy, the Wicked Witch. I found a whole mess of things in the initial set of rooms. However, I haven't quite run across the broom yet! Will try again later.

Ahaha, awww, you even gave it a whirl, thank you! I found the church one to be the least inspired (last one I wrote), so the fact you still found it cute makes me really happy!
Also, Sleep End ftw. I hope you groomed yourself well. <3
Thank you for giving it a go.

I mean, technically, it's possible to join the event now. Your name is on the list of entrants. However, I am inclined to point out...

SIGNUPS WILL CLOSE ON 5/3 4PM CST!


...that you will very probably not get an image/word combo of themes to work with at this juncture. ;_;

Yeah, I don't think there is a way to officially prevent people from signing up without the event being over.
Oh shit, due to real life stuff and internet problems I was planning on dropping out. But with this extension! I can at least rush a quick demo!

Does 5 mins of gameplay count as a demo?
I believe our current standard is 10 minutes of game time, though you'd have to see what Illy says.
