Game Creation Event
Hosted by Daedalus and Cilerba


There seems to be such a short amount of completed games around here. We felt as if it would be great to get some new completed games for the members of the Game Development community to enjoy.

The Game Creation Event is something we feel will bring the community together a bit more. Whoever participates will be required to develop a short game by August 15th. Once August 15th comes, you will have a grace period of two weeks to fix up bugs or touch up your game a bit. This will not be the time to finish your game. It must be completely finished and playable by August 15th. Your main focus when developing this game should not be wether your graphics or sounds are the best out of everyone else who will be participating. You should be focusing on the gameplay.

It is recommended that you utilize Pokemon Essentials for your game, although it's not necessary to make a Pokemon game at all. Do whatever you like.

These games will not be judged. This is a community event, not a competition. Members are encouraged to work together, post progress updates in this thread, and come together as a community.

This event starts immediately. You may start working on your game entry.

      I fully support this event, and I hope people will actually make games for it this time.

      With such a short time available, only shorter games will be possible, and that's a good thing. It means you get to experience all stages of the game-making process without ending up bogged down in one part forever a la all those games in the Showcase. The emphasis of gameplay over graphics also helps with this, as it'll remind people what games are actually meant for.

      I'm sure teams are allowed, so long as they work quickly enough.

      Hmm, I'm tempted to have a go at this. I think I'd use base RMXP for it rather than Essentials, because it's different and I have a bit of an unfair advantage over other Essentials users. It'll get me back to the roots of game-making, rather than wallowing in the special features of a kit.

      What kind of game should I make...?

        Awesome, this is a nice way to take a break from regular developing. Looking forward to the games everyone will make.

        Good luck everyone!

        Yes! You're allowed to work with any amount of people.

        Anything you'd like. It can be serious, a silly parody game, or just something formulaic to the original series.

              I like this idea, it gives people a reason to finish something to some extent. No one likes doing something on their own do they?

              I have a vague idea on what i'm gonna do (if I get round to it) and it won't be as Pokemon oriented as others I can tell you that!

                I like stuff like this, I will see what I will finish 'till the deadline (:

                EDIT:
                uhm a little question:
                I'm not sure, if I understood it right, but I have to use for the minigame the Pokémon Essential Kit right?
                Or am I allowed to use it? ._.

                  it's suggested that you use essentials, but you don't have to if you don't want to. Daedalus just suggested it because it can make things easier on people who are starting from scratch.

                  Anyway I'll see what I can throw together by then and I'll make it some sort of prequel to the bigger game I've been working on for a while now.

                    You aren't required to use RMXP for this. Feel free to use whatever you want to make your game.

                      Nice event!

                      Ideas: Maybe a solo pokémon game (like this) or a game where you are a special character (like a GYM Leader) and need to battle versus some trainers and do some other missions.

                      This is a community event, not a competition. Anyway, I can't see this "unfair advantage".

                            I have a game engine, but not so much a game. Mapping takes forever in GM...

                              Starting to map out all of my game.
                              Then I shall work on scripting.

                              All I'll say is this game is pretty pointless and may ruin a good game. :I

                                In what way and when do you present your game progress for this event and in which aria should it be posted.

                                    Guess ill post my idea;
                                    My idea is basically a prequel to super pokemon eevee edition. Where you play as Red (after he's already champion).

                                    Since it'll be the first generation, im basing the artstyle on Pokemon Yellow.



                                    Rather than having a standard pokemon Open region style approach, i think I'll be making it mission based. (ie: 5 levels, ~30 mins each)

                                    Each level having a contained segment of gameplay.
                                    Including having a different set of Pokemon for every mission.

                                    It'll be heavily story based too.

                                      Now I almost feel bad for posting anything xD

                                      This one also takes places right after Red becomes a Champion (you play as him), and it's gonna go with GSC's look. It'll have a short storyline, and a sort of focus on it too, but the point of the game is mostly exploration as opposed to following said story. You're given plenty of paths to follow right at the start. Big focus on HMs, too, by the way xD

                                      Spoiler:


                                      I'm also GSCing most of the stuff, like the bag, battle, etc.. So far so good; I'm a third into the whole thing's development xD

                                      Oh yeah, the first few minutes are in Kanto, but that's just for introductory purposes, as the rest of it is in a completely new area (island).

                                        My idea, it's basically Pokémon TCG in the main pokemon series style.
                                        It seems stupid i know, but it's something I've been meaning to try, it's gonna have the same idea.

                                        Instead of cards you use real pokemon. To gget more pokemon, each Club has a garden which contains pokemon of that type, and there are 'Point Shops' in each club to buy Special Items, Pokémon and TM/HMs in by spending points you earn from battles, as well as money. Normal battles you get 1-5 pts, and Leaders give out 15 - 40 pts depending on the difficulty.
                                        You get the starter fight with Sam after choosing Charmander Squirtle or Bulbasaur, with which you get 2 other pokémon, to even out the chances of winning.

                                        I've got more ideas but ?I don't wanna give anymore up till i do more. :I

                                        EDIT:


                                        This, is the garden. Of course (judging by the cave), this is the Rock Club Garden, you'll be able to catch various Rock/Ground type Pokemon, as well as various typical route pokemon.
