Ok i'm hosting a competition. I want all of you to make some games.

GENRE-BUSTER!

Basically, you have to choose a genre from THIS LIST and make a game out of it.

rules and shit:
=I am COMPLETELY OK with people using rpg maker. In fact, because most of you can only use this, it would probably be optimal.
=There will be one winner chosen by me, and one winner chosen by vote. fair's fair.
=Yes, I am entering, but I am not going to choose my game for the winner. That's what the vote is for.
=YOU WILL GET A COMMENDATION FOR CHOOSING AN OBSCURE GENRE. You won't win with an rpg, basically.
=You will get voted on technical excellence.
=PLEASE MAKE A GAME. I don't care how shit you think you are I need to see your games. I will make some shitty pieces of music for you to use should you need it.
=Oh, and that brings me on to my next point. TRY YOUR HARDEST to make as many original resources as possible. All the games I make are custom graphics, they may be shit but they work. You can do it BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. You can use edits, but completely original will do better.
=A setting other than classic medieval will also do better.

Wow thats a lot of rules. dont be put off. I want to see short games, not epic story length things, mainly because I want to see them finished.

Deadline is about 3 weeks. I want around at least 5 games before I finish. Your allowed to make more than one game. in fact, it's encouraged.

If I had time, I could try. But I don't.. college you know. Just making any sort of game is what's expected here, and I think I could be capable of that, given I had these three weeks at a different time.

Shut up. This is not an excuse. You people better do this, even if you're spending only a few hours making it.

Imma make a visual novel. Or maybe look up what the hell a Vehicular Combat game is like. And maybe I should actually use GM. I will also take this as an excuse to use shitty homemade midis. (Actually I'm still too lazy to any kind of composition on my own). Any sort of theme you want, or just a weird genre?

JM, crossposting this to any other boards?

You picked the absolute worst possible time for this competition.

I'm usually working until around 12:00-3:00 every day on homework (latin is a bitch). Now the robotics season has started, so I really have no idea how I'm going to solve this.

I actually might need to stop posting on this website for a month or two. I haste about half an hour a day on here, and that's really way too much.

You have plenty of time. Making a game does not take 3 weeks.

Nope, exclusive to WRPGS Smile

I'm trying to finish up a novel then I'll start in on this. I've decided on VN. It's the least amount of programming for most obscure genre, and I'm fine with doing the writing. And timing isn't the greatest; you might have to wait a month and a half for FIRST Robotics to finish up for some of these people. It eats time like crazy... This is usually a slow time of year for the site.

I'm going to give a go again on that space RTS idea, but make some compromises for the time constraint. I need someone to help me write a plot and code though, if I do that. Otherwise, I'm not sure what I'd do. I hate making compromises, and not doing something I'm enthusiastic about. Maybe I'll give that genre list a glance again.

Ignore the time constrain, if you work on it then thats fine.

I can help wherever you need for coding, being the genius that I am. What language are you using?

Well, even if you don't get any other entries, I'll be working on a visual novel in a little bit. Expect a project summary topic when I have what I'm going to do sorted out...
