GIAW 9 will be starting on Sunday, March 25, 2012, at 12:00 AM. If you have never heard of the Game in a Week contest before, then the rules are very simple; contestants are given EXACTLY one week to create a game using RPG Maker. In the past, we've had times where people have submitted cryogenically frozen pieces of crap as their finished product, while others have submitted intensely wonderful games that have cured cancers. Once the week is up and the games are submitted, the finished projects are then scored by a panel of judges to determine the best of them based on ingenuity, playability, entertainment, and polish. When all is said and done, the winning game creator takes the medal while the losers hide in (super fun) shame.
To celebrate the release of RMVX Ace however, we are adding a requirement that the game be made using RMVX Ace. If you don't yet have RMVX Ace, then you can get it here and you will have a free thirty-day trial, which is more than enough time to create an entry for GIAW!
