Ahh, nice touch.

Thanks for the show of interest, guys.

DBoy, that's as good a definition of 'rescue' as any. All the best.

This is a special extended edition of MAGS to try and reverse dwindling particpation numbers.
So we're opening the contest a week(ish) early. So, no excuses! Get planning, find a team, dust off your blue cups and help rescue MAGS from extinction.


This month's Topic: Rescue
This month's guidelines were set by Slasher



This month's MAGS is all about rescue.

It could be rescuing anything from Grandma's secret Apple pie recipe that has accidentally gone out with the trash to saving refugees from a war-torn location. Maybe even rescuing your job or pride...

As long as it's about rescuing it's in.

Let's hope we can get more people to enter, so no restrictions apart from subject.

Ending:  June 30th

What is MAGS?

Started in 2001, MAGS is a competition for amateur adventure game makers. The idea is to create a game in under a month, following the rules set by the previous winner. It aims to help you work to a deadline, improve your skills, and provide a kick-start into making adventure games. Regardless of skill, MAGS is for everyone. Voting is based on "favorite" games, and not the most artistic, or the best coded. If you have bad art skills, use it as a chance to do some graphic work. If you're sub-standard at coding, use it as a chance to give scripting a go. Ultimately, people will vote for the most enjoyable entry.

Rules

• You may work in a team to produce an entry.
• You are not allowed to use any material created before the competition. Your game must be completely new! An exception is music and sound; you can use any audio that is freely available to the public.
• Any modules and templates featured in this board are also allowed.

Entering MAGS is simple. First, conceptualise your game following the month's criteria (see top). Second, create your game fueled only by coffee. Finally, post your game in this thread, including:

✓ A working download link
✓ The title of your game
✓ A suitable in-game screenshot

At the end of the month, voting will begin, usually lasting for fifteen days. The winner chooses the next month's theme, and their name and game is immortalised in the MAGS Archive. For more information, please visit the Official MAGS website.

I hope you can squeeze something out LTD.

It seems may might be another quiet one.
Let's all  try to make June a bumper bonanza! Tell your estranged AGS friends, tweet, retweet, sort out your teams now and let's breathe new life into this wonderful contest.

Great stuff, Cass. Great to see this coming along.
There's a weird glitch in the last 5 seconds. I take it that's not delibrrate?

9
Nice entrues all round.
I'm loving the shiny reflection of the light on the platform and the wall tiles, Grundi.

10
Nice stuff LTD. How's that WIP coming along?
Anyone else in?

11
Congrats on release. Sorry I couldn't help out on testing as much as I would have liked, but what I've played so far has been impressive. I will buy the full game next payday. (nod)

Happy Manday!

Any early interest?
It's worth noting that the Adventure Jam 2017 starts on the 5th of May and lasts for two weeks. So, why not enter both with the same game? That's what I did two years ago.

14
Great news. I always thought the original game was incomplete. Can't wait to play more :-D

Topic: The Fickle Hand Of Fate
This month's guidelines were set by Mandle and Blondbraid



The theme is fully open to interpretation in any way: Fate may play a hand in the game's outcome, the entire game could be on rails driven entirely by Fate, Fate could betray the player, or we could discover that there is "No fate but what we make."

One particularly intriguing idea Blondbraid had was a game where a self-fulfilling prophecy, as in "An Appointment In Samarra" pictured above, could be the core story of the game but, given the interactive nature of games, this could lead to some very interesting situations: Every branch created by the player's actions could still somehow end up delivering them into the hands of inescapable Fate, or they could find ways to avoid or somehow trick Fate along the way.

Hoping for some fateful, fatalisic, or even just plain fatal entries...


Ending:  May 31st

Well, it looks like the terrifically, fan-fically and magnifically prolifical Mr Slasher has won the crown unchallenged.

Well done, mate. You will be contacted soo about choosing a subject for June.

But first, watch this space for May's topic :-).

17
I think to increase voting we need to increase the interest in MAGS, and I don't think keeping it tied to the forum is the best case for this.
I agree we need a boost of interest, but I'm not sure what you're suggesting. Do you mean like hosting it on Gamejolt or something?

Last day warning.
Is anyone planning to challenge Slasher?
