Neato, this sounds like a fun opportunity to try brainstorming some minigames. :kaothx:

One thought I had, if everyone's minigames are going to be put into a single compilation project, perhaps having a pseudo variable/switch sign up table wouldn't be a bad idea. Just something like, say I'm participant #3, so switches/variables 301-400 and common events 31-40 are reserved for my minigame, with more being request-able if I think my minigame would take more. Probably not something that would be required or anything, but would help keep things a bit easier to combine down the road.
I know this is a stupidly slow reply. But I actually have a solution to that. It's best if everyone just uses the first X number of switches/variables.

I'll use the one that uses the most, then assign variables/switches later in the set for that number to each mini-game, then whenever you leave a mini-game map, I'll just dump all of the "active" maps and switches into their storage stuff and on entrance of that minigame again I'll load them back in. :)

The only thing that will have to be juggled a bit differently is common events but hopefully that won't be nearly as much manual editing.

Also, Voting for the minigame contest will start on March 5th! This will give everyone who wants to vote plenty of time to play the entries. (Also it gives me time to handle it since I'm going to be at PAX East for work starting Tuesday, so won't have time to run voting then :p)

Aw, this is sad for me, not only my "minigame" is not RTP, I have just released an alpha version of it. Too bad tho as it has already grown into 20 full sized "minigame" levels as of now.

That's a clever way to deal with the switches and variables, though it does mean putting all of mine in the 80s was for naught. :rswt Ah well, at least I only used a few so it won't be hard to fix when I update my minigame today.

Sometimes my brain works.

I'm uploading my entry to itch at the moment. I wrapped a little story around it, but could fairly easily strip that out if needed. Not that my idea was terribly clever or anything. As far as RTP is concerned, I can't think of a better way to celebrate RPG Maker than to have an event centered around the RTP!

Therefore, Harold, Therese, Marsha, and Lucius are getting more mileage!

Just for me to be sure because I live in Brazil.
According to the pacific time, it's about 6 or 7 hours to the deadline, right?

I got tired of not having an avatar image. Couldn't think of anything cool. So I'm just using my game's antagonist instead... How original. At least both of our names start with C?
Expectation: Design/dev a game for the game jam | Reality: "These codes suck, why did I do it this way? lemme fix this. Also what if I add feature xyz because... well, I can."
Did my first script call in an event! :kaopride: It's completely useless and just because I thought it'd be cute if looking at clocks in-game made the character say the real-world time, but it's fully functional scripting and I did it all by myself!
Stream will be going live shortly! I will be playing Resident Evil 3 Remake, and then I will be switching to a session of the Interactive Text Adventure! Feel free to drop by!
Spent all day working on something that ultimately has nothing "flashy" to show at the end of it. But that sense of achievement...
