RPG Maker is featured in a fantastic sale over on Steam, and we’re ready to celebrate with you!

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or completely new to RPG Maker, we want to challenge you to get those developer thinking caps on and create something maddeningly fun. Our March Madness Mini-game Contest is your ticket to adventure, challenge and fun!

A mini-game can be defined as a game-within-a-game. It’s that quick burst of fun activity you can play again and again to get different rewards. Examples include card games, casino games or a fishing bonanza – all meant to provide your player with an interesting way to take a break from the story and win some unique prizes.

We’re challenging you to create a fun mini-game in RPG Maker! All participants will receive a nifty forum trophy, and our top 3 winners will get their choice of RPG Maker or RPG Maker DLC! Winners will be chosen based on creativity, effort and fun.

Rules:
- Create a mini-game using any RPG Maker program.
- DLC are allowed, but please be sure to encrypt your mini-game to abide by the packs' EULA.
- You may use any graphic or audio resource, as long as it's safe for commercial use and it does not breach any existing copyright or trademark.
- Your entry can be shared in this thread, as a downloadable link. Please use a reputable host (such as dropbox) that does not have the potential to introduce malware or viruses.
- You may post a screenshot or a short video of your entry as an introduction.

Deadline: March 28th, 2017

Yo, this is possibly the best contest here I've seen in a long time. At least the most fun for me anyway. Can you submit a mini game you've already started, or does it have to be completely fresh?

Perfect Timing, I was just about to start working on a mini-game.
I just hope I'll have time to get it ready before the event is over.

Just out of curiosity is there an alternative prize for entrants who already have all the RPG Makers and DLC that they want or need right now? ^_^

Are plugins allowed, or must the minigame be made using only the base program? (I would assume they're allowed, since they're a big part of RM, but I don't want to make incorrect assumptions.)

Nice! Too bad that deadline is so soon, as I have many mini-game ideas and not enough time to implement them.

Oh you know what? I am going on Steam spend that Christmas card on RPGMaker products! :p
And good luck all contestants! (seriously; not just in game making. I love you all!)

Just to clarify, we are only allowed to submit one mini-game?
Or can we maybe submit more than one entry but win only once?

Additional Question: Can we upload the mini-game on itch.io or on the Steam Workshop?

Do adventure puzzle rooms count as minigames? (room escape style)

MEMORY MINI-GAME
This simple mini-game is about memorising and selecting the slimes in the correct order of which they emit sounds.
There are 3 rounds, and each one adds one more slime that needs to be memorised.

Have fun! :kaoluv:

15 Puzzle

The classic 15 puzzle, i implemented this in one of my games, and you can win items like final fantasy I & II from the GBA.
This is playable with only mouse, and can be played in mobile version aswell but, thats later.

Enjoy!

Whoever decided that the 5th area of Xenoblade 3 had to be THAT big and be explored in the manner it does needs to be shot. My OCD cannot leave a tiny shard of the map hidden and those controls can go right on and f*** themselves. -.-

Anyone know of any good guides for editing the UI in RMMV?
