New Policies for 2014: A Public Service Announcement

I don't know where you got that idea. It's probably one of the strongest insults you can use in the UK. I mean, although "fuck" is pretty common in TV nowadays you almost never hear "cunt". So yeah, I agree that it's not a word that you can generally use as a bit of banter.

RMN Demographics

I'm from the UK but I live in Tokyo, Japan.

Is it possible to buy Japanese versions of old RPG Maker engines anymore?

They have rpg2000 on the site, through Marketplace, at prices from 7000 to 11000 yen (about £40/$70). I couldn't see any way you can download them digitally from the Enterbrain site though, so you'll probably need a credit card and an address in Japan.

Valentine's Day: Proposal in a game!

Reminds me of the guy who proposed to his girlfriend through a custom portal level: Here

What are you thinking about right now?
I remember seeing the Jesus Christ trilogy game on here a while ago. Kind of funny if you haven't read it. Almost makes me want to try it...

Are achievements a poor way to increase game length?

I have put a simple achievement system in my game and I'd just like to explain why, and also add possbily a different reason why I think achievements can be a good thing.
Battle Royale is a fairly open-ended game, in that there are multiple ways to complete it and no linear story as such. One thing you can do is to save various classmates at different points. One of the main reasons I added achievements was so that the player could get an idea of which classmates it is possible to save. The puzzle then becomes how to do it.
I think games which use achievements well also have this kind, where you have an interesting achievement description that makes the player think about what they need to do, like a mini puzzle. I'm reminded of the gnome/space ship achievement in Half Life 2 episode 2. I much prefer this type to the grinding for hours type, which I just don't bother with.

RMN Secret Santa 2013~ [Speculation Central!]

Well since my "secret" Santa introduced himself in the video it's not particularly hard to guess...Nevermind, it's the thought that counts! Since he obviously hasn't seen Battle Royale it'll be really interesting to see his reaction. Thanks Santa!

Just one thing..."Based on Hunger Games"...



Battle Royale (the movie) came out in 2000, the book a couple of years earlier. Waaay before The Hunger Games was written. This is a bit of a sore point for BR fans o_O

Brace yourselves, the RMN Storefront is coming

The agreement I signed with Degica dictates that RMN will get 50% of the Distributor Revenue from each sale on the RMN Storefront. (Distributor Revenue means the net sales less the percentage commission reserved for the game's developers). So, after the developer takes their cut, RMN and Degica will split what remains down the middle.

Is this what you were looking for?

RMN Secret Santa 2013~ [Speculation Central!]

I'm game. But please don't give me a massive 50 hour epic as I won't have the time to play to completion!
