Well, sorry for the delay people. I know some of you were waiting for the details to come out, so here they are!

Arum, the RM Universe:

Set the Setting! Contest

Objective:
Make a game in the RMU setting. (For more information about the RMU setting: http://forums.rpgmak...the-rm-universe )

Deadline:
End of April [11:59 EST, April 30th]

Rules:
-The game has to take place in the Arum world.
-All credits must be given for resources.
-All submissions must be unencrypted, unless with a judge's permission for special cases (such as wanting to protect any scripts or resources that you don't want to go public).
-Submit all entries to me (Sevith) by the deadline. Preferred upload site is Mediafire.

More Information:
-Extra points will be awarded for referencing other Arum games/places/factions/characters/etc. We encourage to work together with other developers to reference other games.
-You can use stuff you were already working on (ideas, some maps, an early demo), but you can’t submit something you were about to finish anyway and just entered it in the contest.
-We accept any RM game format, but we’d prefer you to use VX or Ace.
-Judges can submit games, but will get no prizes.
-You can work as a team or alone, but for this contest we want to put out as many games as possible so the Arum setting gets a nice boost in content. You should talk to other people and your friends into entering the contest! This would be an easy way to get some bonus points for continuity.
-Remember that you only have a month to make the game, so don't try to make too big of a game. Better to make a short game and have extra time to make it longer, than to shoot for a long game and not finish on time.

Judging Criteria:
Story- Plot, dialogue, writing, etc.
Gameplay- Bug free, fun factor, how it plays, etc.
Style- Graphics, mapping, visuals, etc.
Continuity- How well it fits into the RMU setting

Prizes:
Prizes will be finalized and announced soon

This sounds pretty cool. Is there any sort of signing up that needs to be done? And is this information in the RM Universe topic all there is to work with so far, or is there more information to utilize somewhere, like a timeline of some sort? Or is that something that will develop over time as more projects are created?

You can just say "hey, im participating!" and maybe make a game topic so other devs can see what you're working on? Sort of thing.

The RMU info topic has all the info so far. There are few devs working yet and nothing FINISHED (aka inputted oficially into the setting).
If I was you I'd swing by the irc channel and just ask around what other people will do, if you want to reference each other or work in parallell.

So far there isn't a timeline, as you said, it's something that will develop over time with projects (thus we're making a contest to give it a boost and have more projects in the setting :3)

I'll probably get started on something, and if I like where it's going, then I'll make a topic of some sort. Until then, I'll keep to myself for a bit and flesh out the details.

I knew this holiday would prove fruitful. Time to get to work!

Welp, better adjust my game to just that if I want to get it finished anytime soon!

I will certainly try to take part in this.

Oh oh oh, can I contribute to this conversation!?

I have an opinion about a game.

You're an idiot!

If you have experience with knives, you know that when you knife a person, the person would become really agitated.

Are you guys looking for TOTALLY COMPLETE AND FINISHED~~~ projects for this, or would a Part 1 sort of deal be sufficient? Like, uhh... clearly more is going to happen, but a HERE HAVE THE FIRST DISC~ sort of deal?

R-really I only ask because it changes who my lead character is going to be. OTL
I currently have a worldless character that I really want to use and I feel like this would be a good place to use them ;___;

Mmm...I'd say yes (it should be a substantial demo, I guess). I'll ask Sevith for confirmation.

Official answer: To be eligible for the prizes, the project must be a completed game.

Unofficial answer: Weeeell, if a game was framed as a "Prologue" or the first part of an "Episodic" game with a "To be continued..." or something at the end, then it WOULD, technically, be a completed game.

So "The full narrative doesn't have to be complete, but the GAME does." Meaning the game isn't broken, and there is a distinctive beginning-middle-end, even if the overall narrative is not complete. If the game is just going and then kinda cuts out half way through though, that's not cool. If a game is going with some grand plot, but you only play through a portion of that plot that ends with a boss fight, end cutscene, and "To be continued..." That would be fine.

I think I'll give this a shot, since I want to make at least one small, completed game. :)

Parallax mapping is the biggest sin known to RMkind.

I'm trying to download the Arum the RM Universe Tutorial Library.exe file from the link the RMU thread and Norton has blocked the website and will not allow the file to be downloaded as it is detecting problems with the site and the file.

You might want to look into that or have the Demo for download on a mirror or submit the Demo to Norton
