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

I have signed up! Bring on the themes~
Well folks!

It seems as if I've learned something new today, it would appear that the term "Oriental" has been deemed culturally inappropriate, so to clear up any confusion or potentially unwarranted miscommunication, I have relabeled all circumstances of "Oriental" with "Far Eastern".

Hopefully this helps clear some things up!
Fun fact: I usually associate "Orient" with what you'd call "Middle East".
To clarify, by Far Eastern you mean Japan? Are other countries included?

Speaking of which, does Western mean cowboy stuff or anywhere in Europe/North America/South America/Australia?

Yeah, my general intention by Far Eastern is cultures surrounding Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and the like. And by Western yes, I was implying like Ye Olde Wild West flavored.

EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THEIR THEMES AND REROLLS IF I MISSED ANYONE OR YOU NEED A REROLL PLEASE POST HERE SAYING SO~

I need a theme. I haven't gotten one yet. EDIT: Nevermind, I see that I got one!
Got a question. If I choose to reroll will I be able to choose which theme to use for the jam?

If you decide to reroll you can choose to use either your original results or the new ones, in any combination.

I would like a reroll~
Hello, I don't know if I got a roll or not. was it supposed to be messaged to me? where can i find it?
Aaaaand I believe the start date and time has just ticked over!

*opens new project* :D
Oh my gosh, the SIMPLEST part of my project is already giving me the most grief. XD

Because of how common events are handled (executes AFTER the current event has run), it's making it QUITE hard to create a very simple "Interact with point, menu opens, X Class uses Y skill to mine/chop/etc at that location, give player item and job points, point goes inactive" system.

I'll figure something out eventually, but hoo boy, I was not expecting to lose an hour to what I thought would be the easiest part of the game to make. :P
