Welcome to the fifth installment of the beloved community puzzle game: Befuddle Quest 5: Zack to the Future 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 4 times and it worked out okay.

For those of you new to the BQ scene, check out this game: Befuddle Quest, or this game: Befuddle Quest 2: Charmed & Dangerous! or this game: Befuddle Quest 3: Love is a Four-Legged Word or this game: Befuddle Quest 4 Dead

Hrm... interesting. RPG Maker 2003, from what I have seen, is a really great maker, so no reason to change from it.

Okay, I posted the submission list:

Desmo360 - A Hole in Time
halibabica - Switch It Up
Gibmaker - The End of the World
calunio - The Offspring Paradox
Kazesui - Horus Hours
Kazesui - Prehistoric Zack
Kazesui - Another Portal

auroren_sky - Pit of the Pendulum
kentona - Ghost in the Machine

ldida1 - Space Station of IQ

If you submitted something, but it is not listed here that means I didn't get it.
If you had a particular name for your puzzle in mind, but I have something different, let me know. It means I missed the title or you didn't supply one.

For the rest of you, if you still want to make a puzzle, there is still time! You have until Wednesday evening to submit something.

Now Zack must travel after Broomhilda THROUGH TIME to save her!

This happens on a chrono trigger chipset/map right?

I was hoping so....

Do you happen to have it?
Well... ripping the entire map is super easy. You could use it as a panorama.

Like Darken did?
Those trees are kinda weird... do they look like that in CT?
No, SNES has a smaller resolution than rm2k3's so I copy pasted the tree top patterns. Hey it works.
Kenton, you named my puzzle brilliantly. Bravo.

Anyone surprised that this isn't ready yet?

I need a few more days.

Update:
-I have created the main BQ5 project
-I have evented the teleport event that takes you to levels and back again (this was more work than I expected)
-I have created all of the level headers

-I have imported 3 levels into the main projects: Prehistoric Zack, Lost Way Chapel and The Great Kaboom

I still have to:
-Create an intro
-Create an ending
-Make the credits
-Import the rest of the puzzles
-Make my own puzzle
-Testing
See you next year!
I THOUGHT OF THE NAME

My son is sick with measles or chickenpox or something along that line, so no work was done on this this past week.

Look for it next week.

also, I IMPLEMENTED THE NAME.

EDIT:
But i can add you to the dev list, you know, for credit.
Let geodude be happy with the only participation he's ever had in a game. :D

No hurries kentona... just make sure it's released before Halloween, or no one will pay attention to BQ5 among Scary Movie contest entries. :(

The game has been released! Get it while it's hot.

It currently requires the RM2k3 RTP, but I will upload a "full" version tomorrow morning.
I wish there was a "Skip Puzzle" button on some of these. Particularly the Pit and the Pendulum one. I didn't realize I needed trigonometry skills to beat a puzzle. Sorry, but this isn't my type of game.
kentona

b..b..but you contributed to it!

Okay, I uploaded the RTP-included version. I also fixed a few things:

-Fixed the exit on Another Portal
-Fixed a trigonometry error in Pit of the Pendulum
-Added a Quick Exit item, that allows you to warp back to the telepod at any time
-Reset the Pan state when reseting switches

Just talk to Delores Anne for the item, if you are playing from an old save, and she will give you the Quick Exit.

Enjoy!
