You find yourself lying down on the humid grass.

With a steady shake of your head, you look around your surroundings.

It's almost morning, but the fog is so thick, you can't see anything.

"Where am I? Where is this place?"

Those questions swirl around your head.

You turn your head because of the quick sudden noise.

A figure of a person was visible. You can't make out the physical features.

"Will you be willing to take on a task?"

The person asks...

Before you could ask any questions, the person throws a scroll.

Catching it while fumbling, the person disappears without a trace.

You grumble beneath your breath and start reading.

To our dearest members of this community, you have been chosen to perform a task that not many can accomplish. "What is it?" you must be wondering. You have been given the task to create a game that is about solving a mystery. What kind of mystery is it? Well now, that wouldn't be fun if I give you one! There's no mystery in that at all! Surprise me.

Of course you're not alone in this task, the top 3 participants that managed to appease me will get a prize. Oh? You're surprised that there's more involved in this play? Of course there are. It wouldn't be fun if there's no challenge, no?

But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

1) Your entry should be about solving a mystery. The Timeline doesn't matter.
Still not sure what to do? Oh dear, Maybe I should give you some hints~
Maybe the king's son was murdered by one of his knights and the blame was put on you.
Or perhaps a group of young kids decided to enter an abandoned house and found there's more to it that meets the eye.

2) Your entry must be made in a legal RPG Maker engine or IGM.

3) You must provide credits for any non-RPG Maker material. No rips are allowed. Please make sure you have permission to use any external resources in your projects.

4) There must be at least 20 minutes worth of gameplay.

5) Judges must have an unencrypted version of your entry. If you don't want your unencrypted entry to be made public, please pm it to me (Archeia_Nessiah) before Sunday, September 21 at midnight (GMT+9:30).

6) You may create an entry thread at any point and update it accordingly once a sub forum is up. The project version that's in your thread at the deadline will be counted as the final entry.

7) You're not allowed to submit a game that you were already working on from the past.

Friday, September 21 2012 (anytime) (GMT+8).

The entries will be judged by the following criteria:
Fun factor - /10
Creativity - /20
Playability - /20
Adherence to theme - /40
Effort - /10

Your works will be judged by an anonymous group of people. It won't be fun if you know who we are~

1) Are teams allowed?
- An interesting question. Teams are definitely allowed. However, you must remember that you will only get 1 prize for the entire team. (for example, you will receive only one activation code for Ace and you will choose to which of your team members it goes).

2) Can I have more than one entry?
- Oh dear, unfortunately you can only submit one.

Posted Image

You will get all of these prizes:

First Place
- Any item from the official store
- A reasonable custom script from Fomar0153
- A secret item by Archeia_Nessiah

Second Place
- A sprite+face from Scinaya
- A reasonable custom script from Fomar0153

Third Place
- A reasonable custom script from Fomar0153
- A secret item by Archeia_Nessiah

Good luck my dear. I look forward to what you will bring~

Woo! More contests! I know exactly what I'm doing, though I have a few questions if that's ok :3
First off, are we allowed to use the demo?
Second off, I noticed some of those places had more than one prize, do we need to pick one or do we get all of the ones listed under that prize should we succeed in making Conan o Doyle green with envy?

Ah... Looks like a wonderful contest. And one I'd actually have a chance of winning, but unfortunately I have other plans. :3 I might throw together a little something just for myself, but I find it unlikely. x]] Shame though, I rather like this contest idea... But I'd probably have too much difficulty dropping my idea for a mystery game and thinking up of something new to be able to enter this.

Good luck to everyone who enters. ^-^

Oh god you tempt me so much, but I dunno if I have the gumption to give another contest a go right after the other one.

I, for one, look forward to playing the entries! I love a good mystery. Alas, while I would love to partake, my own mystery must take precedence, in this case!

Hmm, I think I should try entering even if the final result will be crap. Having a deadline should stop me from procrastinating~

Sounds interesting, Doubt I'll enter since I have no idea how to write a mystery story or whatever even though it's like my favourite book genre, but those prizes are making me change my mind :P
Anyway, Can't wait to see people's entries are.
