    Just for that, you deserve another maze in your honor. Btw I already have MV, so I'm wondering what to do with that key. Is there an issue with selling it to someone else for a very reduced price? Or even better, trading for some DLC. :kaocry:

    Also, don't forget that there will be more stuff added later.

    I think I understand the gist of everything, the only thing I am curious about is whether or not we can use any of the resources that we bought in the rpgmaker website? Of course only if the resources' guidelines themselves permit permission for commercial use.

    @Enigma_Productions this has been answered before, and yes, you can use the packages from the store.

    I'll probably make a horror game then. Since it's October.

    ok... X__X Im sorry, but i have to ask....can someone specify whats in the MV Starter Pack item? From looking at it, it just looks like it has the V box art character in it, which i already have (and im pretty sure i didint pay nearly 100$ for it either, which is the over all value it says it has), but it implies that theres more.... but, but honestly i might have all of that too....so. Details? Thanks in advance...and sorry, i juts dont wanna buy a bunch of stuff i already own. :<

    You can view the video at the bottom of the HumbleBundle screen. The link to the video at that point is here to see the MV Starter Pack contents.

    Just for checking the page you can get another DLC pack that has some pretty amazing stuff in it. Just read the entire thing.

    Wow, so exciting!
    I was participating in another contest, but I guess I'll have to drop it: I always wanted to get on some sweet igmc action.

    Like several mentioned in here, I too am in the middle of a project; otherwise, I'd love to give this a go. Perhaps next year... Good luck everyone! :)

    Aaaawwwww Yeeeeaaaaahhh! I'm SUPER down for this! I've got a bunch of small ideas that I wanted to do while working on my main project, but didn't have an excuse to do. Now I have the perfect excuse!

    Also will the packs in the humble bundle be reveled at any point?

    Quick question, rules say that:

    Game Length:
    Judges will only be required to evaluate a game for 1 HOUR if it passes the screening stage. Any game over 1 hour will be judged only on its first hour of gameplay.

    What would happen If the core gameplay/plot/game would last 1 hour but with the side content (If there is any) it would be 1 hour and 20 minutes? Will the judges go for "finish the game" or "explore"?

    Judges only play 1 hour. It doesn't matter what the length of the game is.

    I'm not a judge, but I was in both previous IGMCs and if a game felt like it was wrapping up soon and I was enjoying it, I would finish it out even if it went over an hour. If I was hating it, you bet that when that hour was up I hit the x.

    Is there anyway to earn extra points? Like in the previous IGMCs, there was one that if you emphasize on "GROWTH" then you get extra points.
