Romance isn't my strong point, but I have a few ideas that could probably work. I've hit a writer's block in my main game story anyways, maybe a small distraction like this one can help me get out of it.

Edit: Just to clarify, this is just a cutscene, right? Not capturing actual gameplay?

Update: Managed to create a scene for Valentine's!

Heya! I definitely want to give it a try. Also a question, are we allowed to draw and use our own art for the cutscenes?

Sure, as long as it's run through the engine, you could definitely use art in your cutscenes.

Thank you for the contest! :)

Is this contest an idea from the Japanese team at Kadokawa/GotchaGotchaGames or you guys at Degica?

Contest plans are almost always done at Degica and then presented to Gotcha Gotcha Games. (In this case, I was the lead on this one).

you must include copyrights and/or credits following the entry template.
This sounds really fun! This is my first event but I'd really like to participate, but I can't seem to find the entry template mentioned in this rule?

Also, can we use programming, something like scripts or plugins to create special effects? (for example like weather) as long as it's made within the engine, and giving proper credit of course if using community plugins, or should we stick to the basic engine features? Either way it's fine for me, I'm just curious.

Looking forward to this!

Oops. sorry that was from using another contest as the template to make this one, need to remove that. Don't worry about a specific template. Just link and then write your credits under. And yes, you can use anything as long as it is in engine and credited (and that you have the rights to use :p)

So you get $5 just for participating and not actually being the top entries?
Sweet! I won't say no to easy money. =w=

Cool, I have a scene in one of my in-development projects I can use. It's a grand old cheese fest.

Also, if anyone is still needing recording software, Windows 10 has one already in it. It's called Window's Game Bar, and you press "Windows Key + G" to access it. The recording controls are in the top left.

I have actually been working on honing my mapping and eventing skills lately, so whether I win or not, this feels like a great opportunity to test what I have learned in the field. :D

It´s been a long time since the last time I did anything with RPG Maker, but I´m trying to come back, so I will definitely give it a try!

If anyone needs help with their ideas or dialogue, I'd be more than happy to help with editing or concept creation!! I have a screenwriting degree and have been writing books and stories for over a decade now.

This is just what I need to put one of my ideas to use! It'll be a tragic love story...

A simple Question:
Can I upload my video to dropbox instead of YouTube?

I'm not good at coming up with stories but could use practice creating cutscenes. Would it be okay to use a cutscene to tell a [clean] joke love themed joke?

Finally had a chance to go through the submitted entries, and... wow! There's a lot of talent in there. Just wanted to say, keep up the good job! I'm willing to see lots of more of those entries, and I'm sure everyone will agree :kaoluv:

Looking forward to this. I'm about 90% done making my cutscene. I have to actually trim it back so it fits into the 5 min window. I guess I am more longwinded in storytelling than I thought.

Edit: It's done and on the submission page! Also took some "chill out time" and watched all the contest submissions thus far. Had some really unexpected laughs and surprises watching these. Some good story tellers here in our community!

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone submits! I can't be in this one due to IRL constraints, but that doesn't mean I can't watch the cut-scenes/videos!

Can the scene be about unrequited love?

Okay anothe stupid question from me. Why is when everyone's explaining the scripts in the scriptlets, it chnge into green. how do i know when do i code without knowing whether its turning green or not
So I realized that I really just don't have enough time to make videos. However I don't mind clicking stream and just letting people watch me work on my game. I don't really have a good microphone... okay it's a $20 headset so it's terrible, and I have no web cam. So the stream would largely be royalty free music and me working, with minor interaction. I guess the question is, would that actually interest anybody?

Hi quick question. Is it possible for me to make a custom VXAce script without learning some bulkiness of Ruby?
