The video can be for released games or Coming Soon games!

Are NSFW games allowed at all?

Hi Apple_Tart,

Thank you, that's a good question!

Basically, it depends on how NSFW your game is;
  • If your game is labeled as "Adult Only Sexual Content" on Steam, we're afraid but it can't join for this time.
  • If your game is labeled as "Nudity" or "Sexual Content" but not labeled as "Adult Only Sexual Content" on Steam, it can join!
Does it make sense?

On steam you can only participate in sales every 30 days. Will there be any specific date, so we know when we should not put our games on sale, so It won't collide with this festival?

Sounds exciting! Currently I’m still midway through setting up my Steam page, but I hope I can have it ready by the deadline. I think I just need to add screenshots and a trailer (which has already been made.)

Sorry but we can't tell you the exact date of the sale.
However, we can say "Do not put your games for sale now - otherwise they can't join the sale due to the cool down time of Steam sale!"

Hi llithianeae,

Thank you for your response!

Free games can join and the game-length doesn't matter.
Feel free to apply!

I applied! :LZSexcite: My Steam store page just opened to the public today. Depending on when the date of this event is, I may have a demo ready. I'm working on it right now.

I applied as well Thanks for doing these types of events!
I think it's a really good boost to all RPG Maker creators and also promotes the engine.

Oh, I think I'll pass then. With spring sale coming in March, I don't want to risk losing opportunity to join one of steam biggest sales.

Hi sweethearts! :kaoluv: Check out my review of @EntangledPear's totally oldskool The Stuff Fairy Tales Are Made Of!
When you spend all day at work distracted by things you want to work on or try in your project and then by the time you get home, you are too mentally tired to concentrate so you just browse the forum instead and think of more things you won’t get to work on for a while.
Time to write some enemy behaviors, here's the stream link for those interested.

Call of duty 1&2 had an interesting cheat prevention method. Between levels the game unloads and reloads the engine dll. If you ever employ this method, make sure to include at least an md5 hash check. Otherwise I can just edit that dll and implant cheats into it.
Hi-Fi Rush is one of the coolest games I've seen in a while. I don't have a way to play it so I watched a friend and wow... I really wish I had a powerful enough computer for it.
