Winter is upon us.  For many of us, that means dinners with the family, trees tall and erect in the living room, adorned with a prismatic display of lights and decorations.  Snow is falling (for better or worse if you're getting it) and many are searching for gifts for those closest to them.

The season means something different to everyone, but overall the sentiment of the wintertime holidays seems to be good will and generosity.

This year, for the first year ever, I introduce the RMRK Winter Solstice Game Competition.  A themed competition to help spark the season and encourage creativity in a time when we're all coming close to vacation, and experiencing for ourselves what the winter holds.

SIGNUPS ARE CLOSED.

The Rules:
  • You may work in teams or individually. (no limit in size, but good luck coordinating a large group)
  • Your Submission must be complete on, or before December 25th, 2010.
  • You may not begin work on the game itself before December 1st, 2010.  This gives exactly 25 days for game work.  Game work constitutes - making sprites, scripts, database work, mapping work, music, and/or anything else that -you do- on the game.  You may gather resources and brainstorm, but no work on the game is allowed.
  • Your game must feature at least one of the following themes:  Humanity, Spirit, Hope, Generosity, or Forgiveness.  Embody the spirit of the season in your project in some way.  How these themes are presented and apply are subject to your own interpretation and artistic direction, so have fun with it.  Please state which you are using when you submit your game!
  • Any Game Making System is allowed, so long as your game is isolated, meaning that judges don't have to install loads of frameworks just to get them going.

Each game will be rated based on the following Categories:

  • Originality - self explanatory, how original was the entirety of the work (this includes but is not limited to plot, resources, and mechanics)?
  • Polish - How polished/clean/professional was the end product?
  • Theme Adherence - how well was one or more of the themes embodied in the game?
  • Entertainment - how fun was the game? how immersive was it?

These guidelines encourage you to be original, to experiment, and to make the game fun.  Don't worry about established convention or complex mechanics.  Make the game clean, complete, fun, and YOUR OWN.

Judges will also be required to supply a full reasoning to their score of each segment, in the form of a review.

The categories per-judge will be averaged into a total score, and then all of the judges' totals averaged to determine Final Score.  Games will be competing for the highest Final Score.

Tips and Tricks from an Experienced Participant:
  • K.I.S.S.! - you have 25 days, this is enough to make something spectacular.  Often one or two amazing mechanics can truly push your entry towards the winners' circle, so don't try to muddy up the game with tons of superfluous features.  Focus on a theme, a direction, and a gameplay formula, and stick to it.  A straightforward and unique game is more fun than an overly-complex mass of features.
  • If You aren't an Artist, find one! - This applies to music, scripting, and anything else you're not good at.  Find community resources, or find a partner.  Lots of these things can be time consuming if you're not comfortable with your ability.
  • Don't bite off more than you can chew! - Keep the game as short as it can to be complete.  Don't shoot for the next Final Fantasy epic, or the next Tales of -, make your game a short story.  It'll be complete, giving time for polishing, and you can iron out the story much quicker, alleviating common plot ailments.

Though I have been very inactive in the game forums this year, I would like to join as a judge.

However, if I get a reliable framework for a game down before the 1st, I would like to be a participant. Probably won't though.

You are not allowed to work on the game until after December 1st, so if you're trying to somehow code your own framework beforehand, that's explicitly forbidden.

A framework for games I plan to make anyway... I already have one, it is just slow and unresponsive.
I don't see how that is cheating, as RPG Maker and similar things are like frameworks (EDIT: are not frameworks, in my mind they are like frameworks. Don't wanna get yelled at for that). They have all the code for displaying maps, characters, etc.. Why can't I?

Because it's working on your game directly.

People aren't allowed to make graphics, or scripts, or maps, or audio (or etc...) for their games until it starts.  Specifically, scripts count as a framework within RPG Maker XP and VX, and are subject to the same rule.  I fail to see how coding from scratch is any different.

It is not working directly on my game. I will work on it regardless of participating or not. It is for general games and won't have anything specific for any game. It's not work on the actual game. It is the engine behind it.
I compare what you are saying to building a car for a race. Teams can build from scratch, or use a generic model with everything needed for the car to run already in it. From scratch, they would have to create their own engine, own set of tires, own frame, etc. Why wouldn't they be able to make generic parts for any car, and just use those parts, which are the equivalent to the generic model, in their car, as long as if the other competitors wanted, they could use these parts too?

EDIT:

I find myself not wanting to participate this year anyway, as the more pressing matter of my 2nd nephew's birth will take time away from working on a lot of things that I wish I could do. 4 hour drives to and from my sister's house are going to be fun..

Regardless of any additional points, if it's original code that is applied to your entry (whether you participate or not whatever), then it counts as working on your game.

I would, though I'm not sure how much time I'll have to work on it during the first week or so, what with finals coming up and everything. I'm pretty sure I get out on the 13th though, and after that I can commit fully to the project.

Just looked at my own final exam schedule. Bad news for my sanity, all of my finals are on the first two days. But! That means I can start -real- work on the game on the night of the 7th (if I don't crash after that comp animal phys final, it'll be a welcome diversion). 18 days is doable so I'm still in.

Would anyone like to team up with me? I can provide custom sprite support [mainly characters] and various other things.

Dunno if Acolyte was gonna join or not. Otherwise, I would like to.

Not this one, but certain scenarios will match the seasons when you reattempt them in a different chapter. If it goes well, I may later make a game that utilizes these tilesets in a more dynamic way.

It is indeed zifee's ring menu, which came bundled with GTBS. I wanted the ring menu to match with my own leather window skin, so whipped that up in photoshop.

Don't sign up if you don't plan on finishing. Emphasis on plan which is what you should have. Understood if you have stupid random events that you cannot control that must strike you out. Luckily we still have several people left. I don't want to see this be defaulted.

You don't have to be finished to submit something.
Submitting an unfinished but worked on project will still get you a grade, and judges aren't so stupid as to grade something WIP as something finished.

Instead of dropping out, people should just finish what they can, and submit what they can.  Even unfinished projects can win if they're good enough.

Fixing some bugs still. Is there a specific time this has to be submitted by? Or just before midnight?

The game should be playable, but I'm not considering it finished. There are still a lot of tileset errors that I won't have time to fix.
