Description

You guys really didn't know this was coming? HA!

Everyone has THREE WEEKS (and some change) to make a short game using not one, NOT TWO, but ... okay, it is two elements from... THIS POST RIGHT HUR

You will get one randomly selected image, one randomly selected word, ANNNND...

A randomly rolled GENRE,
and randomly rolled SETTING!

Examples of GENRE can include, but is not limited to things like, "RPG, Horror, Adventure"
Examples of SETTING can include, but is also not limited to things like, "Futuristic, Retro, Fantasy"


SIGNUPS WILL CLOSE ON 8/14 9PM EST!

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

I'll send you one randomly selected image, word, genre, and setting 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! Starting time is 8/7 12PM EST! As soon as you sign up, I'll work on getting you your themes. New games only, don't dig out your dusty stuff and try to polish it up!

BRINGING BACK TR2/3'S 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/genre/setting 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! ... Hopefully!

A NOTE ABOUT THE IMAGES- The image theme will be handled very loosely to allow for creative freedom. I'll use this image (again, again) 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!

AND, as far as the genre and setting goes, I'll be holding these choices as loosely as the others. So long as we can take a look at your game, tilt it sideways and make some semblance of sense regarding the genre/setting, it should be fine!

Keep in mind that 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

Oh I hope that many people will get some of my words/images!

But the random genre/settings may give awkward combinations with the words and the images.

A random example:
- The word Aquarium (submitted by Frogge)
- This pic (submitted by me):

- Genre: Comedy
- Setting: Medieval

Anyone knows what someone could do with these?

Absolutely sign me up! Was hoping I could do something apocalyptic, but I'll see if I can handle whatever genre and setting y'set me up with.

Sounds good.
Alright, I'm down! Send me in coach!
@Fflo:
Bill's plan to leave this world by sitting in his aquarium with the hairdryer turned on fails, creating a portal that sends him to a Medieval underwater realm where anthropomorphic versions of his aquatic pets help him deal with depression.


The random genre and setting idea sounds really fun! I'm not sure if I'll have the time to make a game but I'll sign up just in case :)

Isekai! Bill was transported to an aquarium animal world by Hairdryer-kun!
@Fflo:
A man that just got dumped is sitting in an aquarium, pondering his choices in life and love when a medieval knight clomps in. Turn on the comedy as it's a renfaire addict who got stuck in their armour and is trying to get people to help them out of it. Ends up being a cute girl and bam! Man gets a date after freeing her. Bonus points for making a sardine in a tin can joke whilst in the aquarium. ;p

OR

Black and white game about a royal family of fish who have been taken from their homes and put in an aquarium. They have to adjust to no longer being the big fish in the pond, so to speak, and interactions with their new neighbours lead to silly hijinks.

OR

A medieval woman finds herself in an aquarium after dying of disease and is confused by modern life. She meets a depressed man who helps her figure out how to get back home.

I was gonna say the guy is wearing a mask so it could be about quarantining in an aquarium during a medieval plague but I like the hairdryer isekai idea way more
@Fflo: A medieval sorcerer tries to summon a powerful ally through the void that connects all of the multiple universes.

By accidents he ends up with a tiny little goldfish from an aquarium.

To hide his failure from his master and king he turns our poor little fishy into a fish-girl who's then send on a quest to save the kingdom. The girl needs to wear a mask to hide her gills.
Can we choose to apply the word to the game content or to the game itself ?

For example:

Word: colorblind
Applied to the game content: The game features a colorblind protagonist
Applied to the game itself: The game features colorblind accessibility options

When in question, a good rule of thumb is put yourself in the players position. Knowing that colorbind is the theme, would you play it and be like "yeah, that theme fits."
No gamepage required?

If so I might jump on this and see if I can make a little something.
Sign me up. Time for some Gam Mak.
