It's time to celebrate RPG Maker Day with a new challenge!
Of course, we all love our epic 80 hour RPGs, but let’s be honest here: we know what is the best part.
Wait, no, what do you MEAN the story and amazing battle mechanics are the best part? You mean we don’t just all play them for the mini-games?
Whether they take center stage or are a sideroom parlour game, mini-games are a perfect addition to many games. A great way to break up the possible monotony of a longer game with something a little bit different. Fishing, cooking, board games, target practice, town-building, all these kinds of mini-games help make some of our favorite games even better!
But in this contest, you won’t be making the side dish, you’ll be making the STAR. The goal is simple: Create the best minigame you can using RPG Maker MV. That’s it. Ok, maybe there are a few more rules, so let’s go over those now:
- Your game should use the RTP Graphics, though can use additional graphics in the same style: The point isn’t to highlight flashy graphics, but to highlight the mechanics of your minigame itself!
- Any additional materials you use must be Commercial Use approved and you MUST provide proper credits. People work hard on those materials, don’t be a jerk!
- You can provide difficulties, scenarios, etc for your minigame that make it as long as you want, but the core experience should be communicated to the player within 10 minutes. We want everyone to have a chance to play and understand all of the games!
- Your mini-game cannot be just a copy from a game you have already released. This must be a new experience for the players!
And that is that! Your deadline is the end of February 26th, Pacific Time! Get those minigames posted in the submissions thread before then, and we look forward to the carnival of ideas!
All participants will receive a new award badge, and the top winner as voted by the forum will receive a 1st place badge!
Can you use mini-games that we created before the contest started?
Yes, with caveats. It cannot be from a game that you have already released, but it can be something from an unreleased game that you are working on currently. It can also take ideas from a previously released game you have made. The main thing is that this should be new experiences. Not just showing off something you already released.
