I would say that after this, I don't think we need another contest. Atleast nothing such as "make a game in x days/weeks/months". It would be nice to have more variety between the contests to be honest, but I don't disapprove.

I agree, where are the art contests and stuff?
I only remember that one pixel art contest I participated in long ago. It was fun. :P

 

This I agree with actually.

I haven't drawn for a while, so a contest sounds like a nice change of pace. I'm sure Tsarmina would agree to :P

To be fait though, on a siet like this - since not alot of people are artists (we consist of alot of eventers and scripters for instance), having an art-only contest seems unfair.

 

Upon saying that;..

- Game Contests = Coders and Eventers

- Art Contests = Pixel Artists and CG Artists

- Music Contest = Composers and Sound Effect Composers

 

I think that sums up the main grounds.

 

C'mon peeps, we need more variety! (but oh gosh, that means even more contests... I think we may need a new section entirely at this rate. Mod/Admin approved contest section haha)

Well part of the reason i'm pumping out IIAWs is to get everone motivated.

Come on, more contests! We've got more than enough people to make it fun, so why not? xD

 

I have a fairly big prize pool for future contests, if you want to make a contest but lack the prizes, I could probably donate some from my pool.

I can only manage game making contests, let's see some more variety here :P

I'd participate. I'm probably one of the few who didn't procrastinate during IIAW5 (possibly :P). A month-long time-frame definitely opens up for ALOT of procrastination (I'm looking at you, Eien. :P), but is good for those who want the challenge of staying focused.

 

 

I didn't procrastinate, I just bit off more than I could chew. *face palm*

 

I would be VERY interested in a month long contest. The 1 week thing was just too short for me. I almost had a nervous breakdown before I said "F it! It's being pushed out in it's current form! (I lost my internet connection and had to upload a day early while I was at the library.) I feel embarrassed by my submission.

I would be all for hosting an art contest, but I think we need more than steam games to distribute to be honest :P

If noone does one in the future, I'll see what I can do.

 

As for a musical contest for composers. That is definitely not my area of expertise.

 

I agree though. IiaW is quite a hype when it's coming around, so I 100% support it. It's really nice seeing people take a break from there main games and just having fun and experimenting~

I would actually be down with this. I´ve had an interactive story based prologue floating around my around head recently.

I don't know, maybe?

I mean, I have tons of projects to work on, so starting next and next ones isn't the smartest thing to do for me, especially the bigger ones. :P

 

I don't mind that though ~ perhaps I'd get an idea and get interested?


I believe I can :fly:.

Want to see SCIENCE in RPG Maker VX Ace? Try these games:

Super Coolstory Bros. | Chain Reaction | Good VS Evil: The Fateful Curse | Frozen Dream | Eric Chronicles - Adventure to The Starting Position

Scripting stuff in VX Ace? Ever wanted to put script calls during playing? Perhaps RK5 Debug Console will help!

More variety on contests should be fun, especially since the forum had a tendency to become eerily quiet inn-between contests XD

Take note though, that certain type of contests might need more specialized organizers... We can't just hand everything on JackusSeriel.

 

EDIT:

Sometimes I forgot about Seriel. I like the new name, though... It sounds so RPG (?)

In a similar vein, I still think Seriel of having a Kirito-like voice while talking, even though the avvy is a girl now.

Not that I complain, just need to get used to it...

70% want a month long contest... Are you going to make it happen? I would set it up myself, but I want to be a contestant. :P

Interesting opinions all, I've took note of what you've all said and i'll probably make some kind of month long contest, but it needs a lil bit of planning before I announce it, gotta be unique and fun and exciting and all that jazz.
