This month's winner was Cryo
by Peder Johnsen and Atavismus
The year is almost over, but that also means a new one is just around the calendrical corner!
This month, make a game all about something old/at the end of its 'life' starting anew. Think fresh starts or reinvigoration.
• A family move away from their old life in the city to a strange village
• A bear emerges from hibernation in the spring to find everything has changedEnding 31st December__________________________________________________________________________________________What is MAGS?
MAGS is a monthly 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, or 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
You may get help for the competition, although you must end up doing something yourself. You should however be warned that it proves difficult to organize a big team within thirty days. You are not allowed to use material already created before this competition. Your game must be completely
new! Music and sound is an exception; you can use free material that is available to the public, if you wish. Modules and templates 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
