Creation of Harold by Nowis_337

The RPG Maker Beta Testers Discord community presents the Enter the Haroldverse game jam! Starting July 27th, impart the spark of life into your own Harold! Conveniently timed after the Touch the Stars jam, our contest invites you to celebrate MV's longstanding mascot, however you deem fit.

For prizes, schedule, and the best collection of Harold-assets on the web, see: https://itch.io/jam/haroldjam.

Reid jam when?
Wha. . this is a Harold jam and you have the audacity to mention. . . get out!!! Seriously though, you can do some Reid themed stuff for this jam if you want. I even included him in some of the optional themes.

Um... Wow... Are there more resources for those of us who are not in on the joke as of yet? It'd be nice to see a trail of Haroldverse content made from previous events and jams that are considered "Canon."

Heh, maybe I should throw my hat in this ring... if I can think of anything that is.

BTW before anyone asks, they have permission to post this jam. It was approved by staff.

Carry on with your discussions.

Aight, so which engines can we use for this? MV or MZ? (I would imagine it's MV since that's Harold's home engine)

If you need to get some general background on Harold, check out last year's entries!


I'd suggest all the top ranked ones, as well as ones that ranked high on the "Harold" criterion, or won the "Harold's Kind Smile" award.

Any game engine is allowed! The main limitation is that you need to own MV to use Harold in other "Maker" engines.

Although "Harold" is technically not allowed outside of these, there are some non-Harold heroes in the community resources page, and you could make your own non-Harold heroes as well.

I wanted to do this one, but I'm afraid I can't find the time. I send all my luck to the participants!

The upper limit of 45 minutes is definitely going to be the hardest part, especially for those of us who want "has a battle system" to be among the features. Oh well, here goes nothing!

Give me 5 minutes of Harold! You can do it!
I'll think about it. I do have an idea. A creep harold-ing idea! I'm just not sure I have time.

Get it - it's a bad pun - harrowing - harold-ing? Hahahaha - I'm funny.

Edit: I officially joined the jam - we'll see if I get to make anything.

I hear you Aesica! It’s time for only a handful of battles, but I know it can be done! Will be cool to see how it turns out. And that pun is definitely Harold
level Mikey. Hope to see something, even super short.

thank goodness you picked harold and not idk, ralph or alex, otherwise I might have wasted dozens and dozens of hours of my time on this! (I have one finished project and one indefinite-hiatus-but-lets-not-say-cancelled project starring Ralph.)


(I'm not sure I still won't.)

Nooooo my heart. :(
But seriously I do expect some subversive games from non-Harold fans. Those are totally welcome.

I'm gonna put my project on pause for a tiny bit so I can explore the engine outside of it... Winging it can only get you so far LMFAO
Have seen some of my favorite people here posting and helping others with questions today -- love to see it!
Haven't been on here actively in awhile, project is going strong my biggest issue is the STORY, i'm refining the plot and learning so much i decided to take a writers class to improve even more but the programming and functionality of the game is stepping up nicely!
Hi everyone! Here's what I'm working on today! It's one of the dorms on campus. I know I said I wouldn't use assets but I reused a few things from the cafeteria hehe.

I added a little squish effect when characters change direction to try and make things a bit more lively. Though it's a bit hard to see on the fast moving guys.
