I don't get those numbers. What does $3600 etc mean? Surely that's not the amount that one bitcoin is worth?

I bought it. I've been meaning to get it anyway. But now I can play it on the bus :-)

*stirs the pot*

Does anyone still think America haven't shot themselves in the foot?

Haha. That animation reminds me of the "Bad Robot" vanity card. You should totally use that in the opening of the game.

Well well, the voting is over and the results are in.
Congratulations to:

Heavy Metal Nannulf: The Strange Stage by DBoyWheeler

Well done, sir. You will be contacted soon about choosing a theme for September's contest.

Thanks to all participants and voters.

Never seen the TV show apart from a few trailers and clips, but this screen gives me strong Sleepy Hollow vibes.

No idea...
Weird Science?

Can I copy the executable and still play it on a different machine without Steam? In most cases, I'm guessing the answer is no, but I'd want to test if it works on some smaller indie games. If the answer is no, that's still DRM.

:smiley: <---- This is bitcoin going over my head.

Sounds like a real sound guy.

I don't really care about 'cheives. Less so Steam 'cheives. I guess they're a nice addition but I've never seen how they could be worth the developer's time to create and implement them. How many adventure game players base their buying decisions on whether or not the game has acheivements? Can't be that many. I will admit to always checking how many I got once I finish a game but I rarely set out to earn one and I even rarelier replay a game in order to earn more.

@horusr - steady on, dude. I really wouldn't recommend doing two game jams at the same time. Choose one and stick to it. Or, if possible, make one game that happens to fit the guidelines of both jams.

Come on Stu.... give us a game as I think your idea is ab fab (laugh)
I'd love to, man but no time :-(

Well done Rocky, Blondie and Brainy. Good entries and stiff competition.

There's so much source material in the good book that there should be no excuses :P

I mean, if it were me, and I wasn't sure how to adapt something specific from the bible into a game, then I would have a Dan Brownish story about a guy who happens to find an ancient copy of the book with a previously unseen page that proves it is all fiction (or fact) and has lots of people trying to steal it from him. Or a Hannibalesque mystery about a serial killer whose murders are all themed around a particular bible passage.

The possibilities are endless, as proven by the fact that most modern western fiction is choc full of biblical references anyway, without having MAGS guidelines.

Voting Ends: August 14th

Greetings brothers and sisters. Welcome to the Holy Edition on MAGS August. I have faith that this will be a popular contest. Now spread the good word, my flock.

Topic: The Bible
This month's guidelines were set by xBranex and Tycho

Make a game where:
The story relates in some way to the bible parables or characters.

Whether you want to make a game where Jesus needs to teach the aliens that have just invaded the earth or you want to make a sci fi story that flips the parable of the prodigal son or you want to keep to the book and make a point and click of Moses adventure is all up to you.

Theme inspired by Dostoyevsky's The Great Inquisitor, The Idiot, classical music, and the movies and pictures shown above.

I've always been intrigued and I've loved art that's bible inspired. It's probably the most used source in art ever and I feel that there is shortage of pnc games that's using it
too. Let's change that!

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.


• 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.

The beauty of MAGS is that it's always there if someone wants to have a go. I'm all about trying to entice more people to have a go but I'm not convinved halving the number of contests would acheive that.

Thanks for your entries, DBoy and Horusr. We officially have a contest :-D

There's about 24 hours left for any secret entrants. Cassie, it'd be great if you were able to upload at least a demo, but I understand if you can't :-)

And I don't like MAGS being 1 in 2 month... What type of contest could fillthe huge emptyness left from mags...
MAGS is every month, dude. Look out for August's topic, tomorrow :-)

If you're wondering 'how can there be a contest in August when we haven't had the voting for July yet?' The answer is that August's topic was chosen by June's winner. And the winner of July choose's September's rules. So essentially there are always two seperate but intertwining branches of MAGS occurring at any given moment.
