In the past we’ve seen contests where people have proposed to make a game in a day or a week with some if any restrictions. I’ve come up with a new idea on this: 1 month to create the best game you can. Eventing, scripting, the works, all finished. To add a challenge, I’ve come up with the following rules and restrictions:
You can use either RPG Maker XP, or VX.
Characters, sprites, tilesets, etc.:
You can use default tilesets that came with either engine, or you can make your own. However, should you decide use custom tilesets,
1. If you are not the author of the tilesets, you must give full credit to the original author of the tilesets. If you got them from this site and an author is not listed, stating you got them from rmxpunlimited.net is acceptable.
2. If you are the original author of the tilesets, you are allowed to finish incomplete tilesets for this contest. You can also start making tilesets for this contest ahead of time, but ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE DECLARED YOU WILL COMPETE.
Story must be complete. After all, you can’t have an RPG without a story. No to be continued, it must be a complete story from beginning to end.
Winner and prizes:
Winner will be determined by several factors, including:
Use of Maps effectively
Use of scripts (if custom scripts are used)
The competition will begin March 1, 2012 at midnight, and end on March 30, 2012 at midnight.
Completed submissions will be accepted starting March 25, 2012.
Send submissions to email@example.com (When you send it, please don’t encrypt the files.)
(If any of the above rules are unfair, such as the map limit, or the rules under the characters, tilesets title, please let me know, and I’ll consider making them more fair. However, I won’t change a rule if I feel it’ll make the challenge too easy.)
