Well since I see Zexion is going with the story thing as well I suppose I can tell mine.
Between thinking I had more time than I did, some laziness, coming up with a name for the game/prep work, and getting a lower back injury or something (not sure what happened there exactly but it is ok now at least) which left me not really wanting to work on the project at the time. In the end I really got most of the work done on the last day, though the prep work done before did help but it did play a part in not getting much work towards the game done since I did want to get further than what is shown and make things look a bit better. With any luck though I'll continue with this and get out what I wanted before as a demo which will be the prequel section of things.

OKAY. Malson and I have a buncha programs set up and tested out that we're going to be using for the good ol' GIAW reviews. Now to eagerly await when the projects can be posted!

We're going to assume that every game is fair game (lol) for reviewing, UNLESS the creator states otherwise. ;o So, as Zylos said earlier, speak now or forever hold your peace! Please PM me or post here and let me know if you don't want your game reviewed!

Well... my game's background story is...

... At first i thought i could have some free time to make a project and finish it, then work and more and more resposabilities drop that time down i just had 1 ro 2 hour a day to make that.
So i use dead times (transportation, waiting for services, bathroom issues, etc...),  to think about the game and the way to solve the engines, i always brought a notebook, where i was writing whatever came to my mind, then i had the game idea on paper but nothing else, but later i wrote down the engines and possible scripts.

I decided to go in something short, but full of engines and systems, variables and choices

And with that i just started typing and selecting as fast as i could, what was already on paper, it took me some time to tune up some events, but everything ran good.
Once the game engine has been finished i just started to change music, sounds, charsets and tilesets, i also change the system and fonts to make it more look alike and to be small and not dependant of rtp.

I think i acomplished what i had in mind: short, clean and classic.

Alright, here's my story. This is going to be spoilertastic, so if you are a judge or you wanna play my game when I let people play it after judging is done and released, don't read this.


Spoiler for:
I started out thinking of a cool overall concept for the game. Basically, what would be the most memorable part of the game? I thought back to an idea I had a while ago which was that the player would be the murderer, but you'd never ever lose control over the character throughout the game. Then at the end when everyone is dead besides a select few, he would reveal his devious plans and control would switch to the leading girl (Mel in this case).

I decided on this concept on Sunday Night and started thinking up what mechanics would complement this well. I decided on the stealth and hidden mechanic. All of the characters are hiding from their problems in some way. Legi is hiding past mistakes. Doyle is running from those that threaten him. Mel is running from getting involved. Mechanics match the meaning.

All was perfect. In theory.

Day 1: Got all mechanics into the game (or so I thought).
Day 2: Get the game maps outlined (or so I thought).
Day 3: Got all mechanics into the game (Yep). Got the main menu screen working.
Day 4: Rushed out most of the story
Day 5: Rushed out the rest of the story, got some of the actual puzzles in and worked on the screen flip effect.
Day 6: Finished the final parts of the game and connected all scenes and maps together so it was at least playable.
Day 7: Playtested the game. Got to JUST before the screen flip moment. Didn't test the ending. Still crossing my fingers.
Day 7 At 11:00 PM: Wrote all of the music, threw it in there, packaged the game up and sent it in.

It's cool to hear about everyone came up with the idea for their game and also how they implemented it!

I also think it's neat how we say "game in a week," when really it turns into "game in 23 hours."

I've got one last thing to reveal about an additional challenge for my game: donjon.

Not the guy, the website.

I love this site: http://donjon.bin.sh/

It's a random generator for pen and paper rpg's, sepcificilt
D&D, but can be used for other things.

Like, say, as many elements for a game as you can think of.

So that's what I did. I went to the world map generator, storyline generator, quest and main character generator and went to town.

But, as a challenge, I made  myself take the FIRST outcome I got, no matter what. The only thing I could do would be to tweak minor details. Names, places, story, it all had to be the same.

It was a fun extra challenge for me and gave me some extra motivation as well!

Hey, while everyone's waiting, would anyone like a tease for some scores so far?


Spoiler for Yes please!:

You sure? It really is just a tease!

Spoiler for Yeah! Show me!:

It could ruin some of our scores for you though! You absolutely sure?

Spoiler for YES I'M SURE!:

100%? You have been warned!

Spoiler for TEASE ME!:




BoE gave him a 10/10, but I was less impressed. Not enough fur for my tastes.

She's not only throwing tables, she's deflecting chairs. That's crazy.

Someone get her a job at WWE.

Well since everyone is doing it, this is how my game came about.

I was talking about not wanting to be in this competition to a friend and then he was like "but you should do it" so I was like "ok" and then I was like, "wait what will I make it about" and then I went to get dinner + dessert and while I was in line at the place I was like, "woah dude i just got the best idea for a game!" and then I made the game. The end!

^Indeed it does.

Also my game directly relates to how the idea came about. Kinda. You'll see eventually maybe I guess I dunno.

When can we be expecting scores? I am like an anxious wreck :S

I'm going to try to get them all done by tomorrow at the latest, though with how long the video stuffs is taking, it'll likely be just the general breakdown and rankings, along with the review summations. We'll wait to do the videos for the after-contest reviews.

It's still 8/29 here, and probably only, like, 10 or 11pm for Zylos. (he's est, right?)

Not quite the 30th yet! ;o Almost, though!
