    RMMV Brite (IGMC2017) and game resources

    I thought this game was really neat, although quite challenging. It's a nice simple concept, I'd encourage people to try it out.

    VNMaker Community Review of IGMC 2017 Contest

    Judge here. I have some thoughts too. Pros We met all of our judging deadlines with time to spare. Without celebrity judges taking their sweet time, the four of us finished our work ahead of schedule and actually were able to accommodate a judge who got sick suddenly by taking a few days off...

    RMVXA [IGMC 2017] The Golden Pearl

    I enjoyed this game and have a second playthrough in progress. This time around I'd really like to figure out that area with the six movable stones. What's going on there, anyway?

    Can someone tell me what is GamerGate?

    Generalizations are tough with that one, because there's a few different agendas behind that hashtag. But there seem to be two primary modes of gamergate from what I've seen. -People concerned about corruption in game journalism in regard to the close relationship between companies/developers...

    Those old Might and Magic games are CLASSIC. Major first bump, dude.

    The Farming One [Finished!]

    This game was a lot of fun! I was surprised how addictive it was just to keep gathering money and buying stuff. I think with the contest over, you guys should consider a larger, more complex version of this. You've got a great foundation already. Good stuff.

    Sunken Spire [Game Released]

    Well, I had a fantastic time playing this! As a Team Dragonfly fanboy, I was excited about the art and I wasn't let down. The profiles, the picture cutscenes and the menu all looked great. All the battlers were really neat too, especially the different forms of the slime. Speaking of...

    If you have nothing nice to say... say nothing at all?

    Comparing someone's game to the dirty waste that you collect in plastic bags and throw in a bin outside your house is rude.  But it goes back to what I was saying before, you have to ask yourself whether you actually want to help the designer. If all you want to do is vent about how much the...

    World Remade

    What he meant is that only a few battles are required to actually advance the plot until the end. Most of the monsters are guarding items and such but you don't actually have to fight them if you want to go quickly. You'll be lower-leveled than you would be normally when you come up against the...

    If you have nothing nice to say... say nothing at all?

    I think that if you sincerely want to help someone, that will show through even if most of the feedback you give is critical. But if all you want to do is scold someone for making a game design decision that drove you nuts, that will also show through and it's not any help. The whole "all...

    Rate Each Game out of 5!

    No kidding. That means you're a serious oldbie like me. What name did you go by back then?

    Rate Each Game out of 5!

    I know everyone's jumping on this, but I want to add 2 cents because I've been there. I envy people with enough talent to produce quality art themselves. ArtBane and I are always relying on other people to pull this off. But we didn't start off with connections, not many people do. I doubt...

    Sometimes antivirus programs behave a little too much like actual viruses for my taste.

    Female characters

    I think a problem that comes up with these discussions (one of them, at least) is that dudes assume writing a female character is drastically different than writing a male one....but really, it's not. They're not an alien species, they're human beings and we all have at least some idea of how...

    Since Indie games like Horror so much...

    For some reason, I was expecting this thread to start with "....why don't they marry it?"  I'm a huge horror buff when it comes to film, but for video games I'm not as informed. I've heard about a lot of indie horror stuff out there and why not? The genre is more powerful than people ever give...

    Things with which we have a seething love/hate relationship

    The Oscars. Oh Lord, the Oscars. I suppose every movie buff does. They make such boneheaded decisions and more often than not, ignore the best stuff in any given year in favor of formulaic stuff tailor-made for awards and not much else. However, all that crap makes it more thrilling on the rare...

    How to pic your pic? pic you pick? pick your...

    Yours is a strange case. I think because it is not a picture of anything that looks alive, it doesn't really register one way or the other. It's just a word and a symbol accompanied by some (usually mean) text.  :P   But yes, it's obviously highly subjective.

    How to pic your pic? pic you pick? pick your...

    I think avatars are more powerful than people give them credit for. The image often informs the "tone" people see in the text. So if someone with a angry shouting face for an avatar goes on a long rant, it's going to seem more harsh. And when you get annoyed with people, the avatar suddenly...

Been working on some sprites, My favorite out of all of them is this guy, his name is Moss:
anyone else 'round here gonna be doing the retro game jam that's starting in a few days on itch.io?
I also wanted to say that my bro brought back nostalgia and got me a GBA SP for my birthday! Ah, the memories of Pokémon Sapphire and LeafGreen! It came in a gray shell but he ordered a red one so it'd look like the one I had as a kid. It looks brand new!
