It's RPG Maker's birthday and you're invited to join in the celebration! We're a little bit late to celebrate the birthday (Feb. 15) but hopefully we can still show our love and appreciation for the engine!

The aim is to release a game - either complete or demo - before the end of the event... but there's a twist! You are also encouraged to release a trailer of your own, or someone else's, games!

:kaojoy:The Rules
  • Release either a new demo, completed game or trailer for your own/someone else's game before the end of the event!
  • All releases must have had significant progress made during the event timeline - no taking an old demo or game download and re-releasing it!
  • The event starts on the March 5, 2019 JST.
  • The event ends on the April 27, 2019 JST.
  • As this is the birthday for RPG Maker, games must be made in an RPG Maker engine. This includes the games that trailers are made for. We also encourage the use of VNMaker if you desire.
  • You can release as many as you want. But we highly encourage quality over quantity!
:kaoluv: The Prizes

Participation Prize: All participants will receive an RMW Badge for participating. You will get a tiny Harold flipping pancakes, maybe. The badge graphic is still under production but we hope that you will enjoy the end product whatever he may feel like doing.

Resource Pack Prize: For each category, there will be a winner based on lottery. They will receive a copy of any of the resource packs on the following listed. You can only have one!
Feedback Prize: Three lucky participants who give feedback, review, fanart, trailer, etc. for any RM game in this site and/or presented in this event will receive a special badge and a copy of any of the resource packs on the following listed above. You can only have one!

Special Winner: Details coming soon! What is this, I wonder?

:kaojoy:Submissions

- Post link here and tag @Archeia to be added on the list!
- Please upload your games on RMN, Itch.io, Gamejolt or Google Drive!
- This event encourages you to work on your old projects. This event is designed in a way to help you get motivated on your old project. So yes, old projects are allowed as long as the progress made is done within the timeline of the event.
- Only FREE games!

Full Game ::
- Release a full game within the date of the event. You may take an older game and complete it for this category.
- Submit project to corresponding Project Boards (https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?categories/projects.18/)
- Add the tag [RSE] to the game's title.

Demo ::
- Release a demo within the date of the event. You may take an older game and add to it for this category.
- Submit project to corresponding Project Boards (https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?categories/projects.18/)
- Add the tag [RSE] to the game's title.

Cutscene ::

- Please add a description and what part of your game is this going to be used for feedback giving!

Boss Battle ::
- Release a boss battle that must be part of the project that you worked on during the event. You may take an older game and use it to create the boss battle in.
- Please add a description and what part of your game is this going to be used for feedback giving!

Trailer ::
- Release a trailer for your own or someone else's game. You may use someone else's game as inspiration for your trailer.

Mapping ::
- Release 3-5 maps from your game and it must be playable. The maps must be made during the event. You must explain how the maps fit into your game (no just making random maps for the sake of taking part - they must come from a project that is being worked on for this event). Screenshots must be of a size to be able to see details clearly. Lighting, effects and the like are also fine, as long as map details can be clearly seen.

Giving Feedback ::
- Make sure that your feedback is in-depth enough and has a considerable amount of effort put into it! That's all I ask.


We reserve the right to pull any entries from any category at any time if it is believed that someone is trying to game the system in any way. We want to make this fair for people and to have fun, after all! :rwink:


Enjoy and have fun! Please let me know if you have any issues. :kaopride:

Holy s--- this time again, I'm pretty sure it was like yesterday I participated this.
Time to rush my game demo, I think ...

Speaking of giving feedback, it must be in this forum? or RMN review also counts?

This sounds fun. I was gonna start a demo this month anyway.This event comes at a very nice time! Still, I must point out your rules conflict each other, mainly, these two:
  • You can release as many as you want. But we highly encourage quality over quantity!
  • For each category, there will be a winner based on lottery.
Since there won't be judging and winners will be picked at random (that's what you mean by lottery right?), to have the best chance of winning one should try to submit quantity. i.e. more lottery tickets.

Oh I'll probably only submit one just for the badge, but I'm just saying. :p

You can submit multiple things on different categories. Just not like 5 demo games you know? Like that kind is what I mean haha

So it's the birthday of RPG maker... but you accept entries made in VN Maker as well? Did I read that right?

In that case I'll assume that the relevant categories would be; Full game, Demo, Cut-Scene or Trailer? Since creating a boss fight in VN Maker... maybe not impossible, but probably not what most would chose to do.

Is there any length requirements or restrictions? What about a 5 minute demo? Or a 1 minute cut-scene?

Ooh thanks Poryg, I didnt expect it to be on the rules part (I was more of looking for a bold text saying Deadline or Contet Duration), I was going back and forth in the post and havent noticed it xD

@Archeia
That's great. Most of us probably do that anyway, but I an occational event helps motivate people to actually put something out into the public.

I have another question though which I suspect someone else would ask sooner or later if I didn't.
...
- Only FREE games!
Does this mean that the game that's being worked on must be a free project or that the submission for this event has to be free? I'm sure many people are working on commercial projects but might want to make a (free) trailer or demo for this event. I assume you meant that the submission is what has to be free (because else no one can look at it without paying), but it would be great if you could clarify.

That's my final question (I think). :kaophew:

Yes, submission has to be free.

I think I might give this a try. There's still a game I haven't touched in a year or so and I think if I don't have any motivation, I won't finish it. Even though I really love the idea and I've put so much work into it already.

I've got nothing to release. My demo is about 4 hours and i only have like 25% of the first area complete. Help. I can just make a small game, right?

It seems that my favorite anime page finally kicked the bucket... :,c

Every RPG and MMO should let you transmog\glamour your gear so you can look the way you want.
So, to clear up things, this section is to speak about personal life stuff and such? or maybe upload game content?
excerpt from my game FW: WHAT?! You want me to shear sheep? I had servants, who had servants, that had servants that did peasants work. Vincent: Do you see any of your servants here? FW: Well... no. Of course not. Vincent: Then get to work.
