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

Not gonna lie, the first idea in my head when I saw my combo was "Valkyria Chronicles on the moon".

*Edit: Or, I guess the crazy move would be to have a dystopia based on the Thriller set, and have people moonwalk??? Somehow involve tanks?????
I like my prompt and image but I wish it has a better color palette to inspire me o)-<

But it does lean heavily to simulation game...
@ Marrend

I'm glad you like my WW2 Churchill crocodile thank. Have fun with it !
Tank goes gaw gaw, munchs on uncautious people's legs passing by the river.

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

Awww yeahaaa, Theme Roulette time! This year is looking quite exciting! :O

Sign me up coach! There’s some interesting rolls so far, Marrend’s specifically has my eye on it so far.
(notepad in hand, gently chomps at bit for tomorrow's continuation of the draft)! :)
Alright, hit me with something. I'm feeling a little inspired for some gammak.

Signed up!
Okay, everyone who is currently signed up has themes. I'll get to all the rerolls tomorrow - stuff came up >.<
One question: If I have the genre romance can I add another genre to it or does it only have to be about romance?
Futuristic setting?? I suck at futuristic mapping... this is gonna be a real challenge! But... CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Maybe you can s pie then
primitive historical kids game? sry imma have to ask for a reroll on that
(WORD - Jobs) (GENRE - Coming of Age) (SETTING - Medieval) ?

I have to say, I got a really easy set of themes and I must thank you Illy. :D

I already have some really good ideas.

Thinking of taking "jobs" literally and having the game be about not just having a Job system, but literally be about working a bunch of jobs in order to pay off a sudden inherited debt. :P
author=NoBody13
One question: If I have the genre romance can I add another genre to it or does it only have to be about romance?


Yes! So long as there is some romance related element somewhere in your game.

I know I haven't had the steam I had when pumping out themes two days ago, but I've had a handful of probs I need to address. I promise I'll get to rerolls before tomorrow is out!
Would love to see what Beregon comes up with the theme he's got.
