Have RMRK+ decide what games to vote on in the future.

if the potm winner doesn't give a suggestion, then I agree this is likely the best course of action.

I'm untouchable!

I chose for greatest improvement, and Deira went from something I had absolutely no interest in to something that actually looked like it was worth a download. And a lot of the games I think look nice have already won ;p

The next Project of the Month will be delayed, as there has been some effort to reform the way winners are chosen in RMRK+. If you wish to suggest a new way to choose the next PotM, please post here and it will be put on the table for discussion.

P.S. I'm totally telling the truth. I'm not just trying to keep Deira up as long as possible  ::)

Yeah, no one blame Modern, it's totally my idea that's keeping Deira up.

If we can't get something decided on in three days, my team will just choose.

The new PotM selection method has found a winner:

Nora's Dragon Stories, by Japur

Everyone congratulate Japur for an excellent project!

Some comments made on the game during the selection process:

Quote from: Redwyn
The mapping = holy god beautiful. Plus, from the features list, there seems to be a good amount of animation for the characters so that's a plus.
Quote from: grafikal
I picked [Nora's Dragon Stories] because the mapping is gold and the process of entering books to find pieces of evidence and what not for the story is pretty unique.
Quote from: modern algebra
I think the frame narrative of the story is interesting and it allows the story to go anywhere, which I think is intriguing. It also adds an element of mystery to the story that I believe could lead to exciting plot developments. Even neglecting that, the mapping is top-notch and the other graphical elements are excellent. The only thing I dislike is ring selection for the menu - I think it's ugly on that background and with so much white space to the right of it. Otherwise, I really think the project has a lot of promise.
Quote from: Karo Rushe
I find it's story been simple and unique, not every day I see an RPG in which gathering proofs of dragons to make people believe is seen. I also like the atmosphere used in the maps. The Mapping itself is great and the spriting (Specifically the trees) surely caught me drooling for them.
Quote from: DeathLockBM
Imaginative, and a creative story. Even the process of the story is unique

No, not really, I took epic split and rmrk banner and offered them in the topic though. My fave is RMRK banner since it fits in with the site.

In other news, grafikal has made some lovely badges for future (and current) PotM winners. They'll look like this:

Here's an idea :) we could display the EpicSplit here, and the RMRK one's in topics elsewhere than our site. I think it'd be cool, but it's totally up to the topic holder of course

And for September, we have a new winner. Everyone congratulate Tezuka for his extremely promising game: Final Fantasy V-II: Sacred Chains

Some comments on the game during the selection process:

Quote from: Falcon
FFV-II actually looks like a damn good fangame. Spriting and systems look great, and they can't even use scripting.
Quote from: DeathLockBM
FFV-II - Sacred Chains: Excellent sprites, the systems must rely on eventing, and stands out even though its a fan-game.
Quote from: NAMKCOR
the sprites look gorgeous, the eventing work is spectacular, that's all I need ...  That, and I think it's been deserving POTM for some time now.

And the new method has produced a winner:
October - Fall of the Living: First Outbreak, by ChainsawMelody

Everyone congratulate Chainsaw Melody on a fantastically promising game!

Some comments made during the nomination period:

Quote from: Zylos
the lighting and shadowing are extremely impressive, and coupled with the awesome Kaiser spritework he's done, he's made it a game that's simply visual eye candy. The complex detailed ABS system looks to be feat seen in very few other RPG Maker games. Just from the screenshots alone, I'd say this game is well worth waiting for.

Quote from: DeathLockBM
it doesn't limit itself to the fantasy setting, and RTP graphics. Greatly done modern maps, with HK sprites being used its graphically amazing. The ABS is excellent by the looks of it, from the screenshots and the shooting trailer

Quote from: modern algebra
It's nice to see a game which isn't to the same small scale that every other RMXP game is. The fact that everything is scaled with it and still nice is refreshing. Further, the modern tilesets are used extremely well. The weapons in the game are very cool and it's clear that a lot of detail has gone into the battle system in general. I think it is a very promising project.

And the November winner is Irock's Desomion. Everyone congratulate him on a fine project!

Some comments made during selection:

Quote from: Zylos
The outside maps are pure gold, the music is very fitting, and the general atmosphere is just unbelievable. It was made in only a week, yet it is more fun than most of the games I've ever played.

Quote from: grafikal
I voted for irock's game because it was pretty fun ... i liked the puzzles and gameplay. The mapping was nice, though a bit cluttered at times.

The winner is NAMKCOR's Planeswalker!

Quote from: Zylos
What's there to say that hasn't already? It's a game with a captivating storyline and rather ingenious systems, not to mention the mapping and music. Just the first ten minutes alone is enough to completely astound you as to how much effort was put into it, and yet it was made in only one week. Truly amazing.

It should read ChaosProductions, Rei-, and Archeia Nessiah. Despite my username being plural, I am a separate entity, and they deserve their share of the credit.

And the project of the Month for April is Valithirian Arc. It seems appropriate that this is the third project of the month Nessiah has been involved with and the third anniversary of the PotM
