What is this?

If you're reading this, you probably, most likely are making a game. We all read articles on game design, discuss game design, post our screenshots, and so on. However, the big issue with all of us is how much time we are working on our games and how much we get done in a certain time. A lot of us don't get as much done in our games as we like, and we end up chipping away at our games, sure, we get stuff over time, but a lot of the time, it may not be substantial, and it doesn't add up to quite enough.
 
What if there was a way for us to band together to give inspiration and support for the sake of a common issue and work together towards it?


This topic is inspired by a topic back in 2008 in RMN and posted by MOG.
 
This event is handled by Archeia and Shaz.

 
How does this work?

 
What I need you guys to do is think of a time every day where you get at least a half hour to work on your game. It can be more of course. I can be flexible. I'd like it to be around the same time every day. If this is utterly impossible, try to spring for something at least consistent, like every Tuesday and Thursday or something like that. A schedule, if you will. Hell, you can even have weekends not count. Post how often and when you will work on your game and provide updates, and tell us what time zone you are in (for example, "I will work on my game Monday to Friday between 5pm and 7pm.  My time zone is UTC-6" - don't say PST or Central - say GMT/UTC + or - how many hours).
 
Now, every day (or whenever you assign yourself) on that time, get something done on your game and post about what you accomplished. Now, it has to be somewhat substantial, it can't be something like "9:00-9:30, I imported a backdrop." I'll use discretion for what's substantial and what's bullcr*p. I'm going to make a signup sheet for this purpose, and I'll go first.
 
Got it? If not, feel free to ask me to clarify. Keep in mind, this is an ongoing thing (which means it's a commitment/schedule) and you have to live up to it! Of course, feel free to post if you want to change your daily time. Of course more people are free to join, just post your time!

The Game Making Drive is only for fun. The point of the event is to make everyone disciplined and keep a consistent schedule. The teams serve as a motivation grounds and is not a real competition.

How to register:  
  • Please post your times in YOUR timezone. We have an automatic converter for you!
  • Post according to your schedule. Missing your schedule gives your team a chain break.
  • If you want to change your schedule, PM Archeia AND Shaz..
  • If you think you're going to miss your schedule, PM Archeia AND Shaz..
  • If you changed your display name, you have to PM Archeia AND Shaz..
  • You can choose your team at the beginning. If your desired team is full, you will have to be moved to a new team. We want to keep equality~
  • A chain break only holds all your team's points. The people who are responsible for that is the one in Team Royalty. Once the gem is broken, the points are freed and counted to the final score.
  • If your post is not substantial enough or didn't say anything about your progress of that day, it is ignored.
  • Don't forget to add Team X+1 at the end of your posts! It would help me a lot to update the team scores.
  • People will get a special badge once the event is over.
  • Team Royalty will handle a raffle by the end of the GMD. People who are eligible are those who are able to keep up with their schedule and show significant progress to their projects. Engaging each other in a conversation about their updates can also make you eligible~ The most important thing is never missing your schedule!

It'd be fun to make some changes. Also I learned to make backups so I don't lose everything.

I think a little motivation is good for me :)

Thank you @casper667 for make many amazing plugins. Do you see right @hiddenone make the blogs about your plugins?
Does anyone know where the MZ PluginEditorDemo.js can be found? It might be called SampleCoreScript now. I'd like to see what changed from MV.
