I was working on something for fun but I think I'll put it aside to try this since I still have some time left. I've never done a game jam before but I've always wanted to try one.

The EULA appears to say you can freely use it as long as you credit "Moromaga", "Morokyu", or "Margaret".
So that means non commercial and commercial, as long as I credit?

As far as I can tell. It doesn't seem to have any separation between commercial and non-commercial in the terms.

Question : i remember reading somewhere that its discouraged to share our game with the community before the judging and i can understand the reasons for that. However am i allowed to have a select few ppl (that happen to be part of the community) playtest the game for me or is that a no no?

For my entry, I was thinking of doing a puzzle game in which a girl returns to her deceased grandpa's mansion to solve a mystery he left for her.

Her grandpa was an Astronomer and loved the stars in the sky, and at the end,
she looks through a telescope to see her father's favorite constellation in the sky as a sign that he's always watching over her.

Does this count for the "Reach the Stars" theme?

I actually have a question about this. Will the judges be using computers that have dedicated GPUs?

I would assume so. I will check but I'd be surprised if they didn't have a dedicated GPU.

You know what, I should do that, :S
Now I'm trying to figure out a simple sub-story...
Yeah the way i see it is you can not try and regret it or try and the worst that can happen is you lose... Just like 90% percent of us but at least you Will have tried and are in good company xD

I dunno if I'll make it...
I got so distracted making like 2 maps super pretty and now half the times gone lol.

I did finish a cutscene today at least... Just gotta add the busts, that aren't finished lol.
Also the cutscene is completely unecessary and I really should have spent that time on the actual plot and not just, MC borrows a horse.

Uhg. I'm still pretty early in development, but I'm worried the game might end up being a bit to long. Maybe I'll make some Game Jam exclusive items that'll help the judges experince the game's story if they have trouble.

I don't have time to make super pretty maps so I'm focusing on simple and sleek.

I couldn't help myself, so I edited the tiles a bit and made a birdhouse :LZSsmile: I hope I will finish the town today!Screenshot 2021-09-17 134349.png

Still thinking on details to add.
Added a plugin to RMMV Plugin Releases with all relevant info but it looks like the topic wasn't approved for whatever reason. Cool.
Working in the IT industry:
- "How long does it take?".
- "It takes 1 month".
- "What if we add more people to the project?".
- "It would take 2 months".
