..:: MAP DESIGN FUN #10 ::..
..:: BEFUDDLE QUEST 3 ::..
..:: Love is a Four-Legged Word ::..

So I'm making a MDF for the summer. This thing will be open starting now until the end of August. Multiple submissions are allowed (and encouraged!).

Welcome to Map Design Fun #10 - Befuddle Quest 3: Love is a Four-Legged Word, the third (and final?) installment of the collaborative puzzle/maze game community project. Using a specific product, RPG Maker 2003, we will each make a single map puzzle using RTP OR your own supplied graphics (that mesh with RTP) and I will link them together in a quest. Why RM2k3? Because it's accessible to the majority of people and because it's pretty easy to link maps together using it. Plus, I'm running the show and that's what I use (because I'm old). Also, that's what we used last time and it worked out okay. Plus, I need to lure GRS back to the darkside.

The twist in BQ3 is that YOU MAY SUBMIT MULTIPLE PUZZLES and IT WILL BE OPEN ALL SUMMER.

TIMELINE ::..
Starts: July 8th, 2009 (Today)
Submission Deadline: August 23rd, 2009 @ Midnight


RULES ::..
  • You must use RM2k3
  • You can submit as many puzzles as you like
  • Each submission must use only 1 map
  • No Teleport events - use Recall to Memorized Position
  • No battles or common events or items or pretty much most of the Database
  • No instant Game Overs (restart the puzzle instead)
  • No Teleport events - use Recall to Memorized Position
  • If you aren't using the standard RTP, INCLUDE YOUR RESOURCES
  • No Teleport events - use Recall to Memorized Position
  • No Teleport events - use Recall to Memorized Position
  • No Teleport events - use Recall to Memorized Position
  • The hero is Zack, the first default hero in RM2k3
  • No Teleport events - use Recall to Memorized Position


STORY ::..
Ah, Zack and Broomhilda are united at last. The happy Baron and Frau von Niddly have given the young happy couple their blessing, and everyone was happy. Happiness ensued.

...until the Duke of Earl showed up.

Duke Drake Marquis of Earl (a.k.a. "Drake the Rake") has arrived to claim the beautiful Broomhilda as his bride, as per the marriage arrangements made between the Baron and Drake's father Vlad (a.k.a. "Vlad the Cad") years and years ago. With the Niddlys powerless to stop the powerful Duke, Drake absconds with Broomhilda down a secret corridor in the Befuddling tower! Oh no!

Our beloved hero now must pursue the Dastardly Duke Drake the Rake through the tower once more and rescue his sweet sweetheart while completing confounding conundrums. Zack's puzzle solving skills will be put to the test once again!


SUBMISSION ::..
Before the deadline on August 23rd, 2009 @ Midnight, zip or rar up your project, upload it somewhere and send me a link to the file (either in a PM or here in this thread). Make as many puzzles as you like.

Please include with your submission:
  • The RM2k3 project
  • The coordinates of the ENTRANCE and EXIT points on the map
  • Puzzle name
  • A brief description of the puzzle
  • A detailed walkthrough (in
    tags or in a PM)
  • Puzzle difficulty
  • Any special notes or issues you think I need to know to link the map into the game

I'm not opposed to using extra music, sounds, pictures, chipsets or charsets, as long as it fits with RTP (and they're included with the submission). If you have special tileset rules, let me know.


NOTES ::..
As before, this game will be about the puzzles, but feel free to take the story in bold new directions!

Also, feel free to use any variables or switches you like - I will reset them to 0/OFF between each puzzle.

GAMEPAGE ::..

BQ3 Gamepage go here ---> http://www.rpgmaker.net/games/1300/
BQ2 Gamepage go here ---> http://www.rpgmaker.net/games/1166/
BQ1 Gamepage go here ---> http://www.rpgmaker.net/games/1101/
Note: I can edit the BQ2 gamepage because I am on the developer list. This seems kinda silly: surely only the lead should be able to edit the data..?

Anyway...

I will not be here on August 23rd since I am at the Leeds Festival, but if I can think of something before hand I might join in anyway and send it off early like I did last time. I just don't have any ideas right now...
nope i am not fitting this round my holiday / my own game. next time, next time..
I'll sign up! Plenty of time, plus I signed up last time and failed to deliver, so this time I'll really try.
Sign me up, coach!

this sounds like fun. :]
Mwahahahahaha! (I'm going to make a bunch of extremely hard puzzles so I get a block of my own at the end again.)

I knew I should have made a no-Sudoku rule!
Sudoku puzzles are too easy. I'm going to make a Cryptic Kakuro instead this time.
I'm in!


I'll submit what I did for BQ2 (forgot to send it off) with a small change and something else
mahjong quest

actually I will see what I am doing either side of my holiday. i will plan it / do a basic version before and spice it up after!

COUNT ME IN SUCKAS

I just might participate in this. Depends on how busy my summer continues to be.
I think I have a vague idea here, but quick question: can I use Teleport events?
Yay, another beffudling quest!
Mr.L is in.
