MAGS November: "There be monsters" (RESULT)
« on: 01 Nov 2015, 01:06 »
After a false start, voting is OVER.  Thanks to all the entrants for a great first time as host. All the games were enjoyable. My personal vote went to Song Animals. What a gorgeous piece indeed.

The votes have been counted and the results are THUS:

The Man That Only I Can See by Chicky - 1 vote
Monster Wants In by Mandle - 1 votes
OCEANSPIRIT DENNIS: The Terror of the Ice Princess by MiteWiseAcreLives - 3 votes
Song Animals by Emont - 4 votes
Scylla And Charybdis: A Grecian Ship From Olympus U by Eggie - 4 votes
Freak Chic by Atavismus et. al. - 12*

Well done to the the Frenchies :-)
You'll be contacted soon about choosing a topic for January.

(*Freak Chic still had a bunch of votes, but enough of them (5) were from non-French IP addresses to conclude that it likely would still have won.)

After a month off, MAGS is back. Let's make it a good one.

Topic: There be Monsters!
This month's guidelines were set by Grok

On a Dark and Dreary Night
Monsters gives a Dreadful Fright
to achieve MAGS' Fame
make of that a Game
and include Lines that Rhyme
that's the Special Rule this Time


The game should be about monsters. You pick the monsters. You could go for horror or comedy or what ever else you might like. But the game must contain rhyming as a part with some sort of significance for the game.



Ending: November 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.

This theme sits really well with me,
I note the rules and smile with glee.
A game? A game? Of monsters and rhyme?
I'll provide just that, hope I make it in time!

Oh me and oh my
I gues I'll just try
To make a game in four weeks
About monsters and freaks

There should also be a king,
Now ain't that the thing,
Riding across the land,
With a golden sword in hand,

I already ran out of rhyme,
Potatoes and thyme.
Wrongthinker and anticitizen one. Pending removal to memory hole.

If I say yes, will my ambitions regress?
If I turn blind eyes, will another arise?
I find myself suffocating in thought,
a little distraught,
so far from the goal I have often sought.
A monster you say?
I've one inside.
Still beating and still alive.
Still waiting for her moment to rise.

My vice is your anchor.
Just be sure to thank her.

Designing one's monster,
Can be quite a chore,
But I hope what I come up with,
Has not been seen before...

In the days of old,
Banners fluttering bold,
Mankind stood tall,
Ruling over it all,
The trees and the land,
The seas and the sand,
‘Till one day they came,
Their hunger insane...

Une petite dizaine, ou une grosse poignée,
D'AGSiens parlant le français,
Montent tous ensemble un petit projet.
Mais vont ils donc arriver
A tenir les délais serrés ?
But of course, messieurs les Anglais !

Some of us speak English,
For the others, this tongue is rubbish.
They stay hidden in the French forum,
But this month, here they will come!

the others think it's double Dutch"

English, French, or Navajo,
If you make a game, we'll give it a go.
There seems to be interest in this months theme,
Can't wait to see pictures of shots from your screen.

Wow it's been a while, but I'm going to go ahead and declare my attempt to get something done for this month. Oh and also I can't think of any rhymes for my post. Ah, I've failed already! (laugh)

Will you write a vampire rhyme?
Or speak to us of gooey slime?

I will not write a vampire rhyme
I know not how, I have not time
And be it greener than a lime
I will not speak of gooey slime

Then shall you tell another tale?
Of wolves that howl and ghosts that wail?

Nor will I tell a wolfy tale
Or spin a yarn of ghosts that wail

Perhaps a brand new monster, then?
To scare even the boldest men!

I tell you once and once again
I will not scare the boldest men
Nor will I tell a wolfy tale
Or spin a yarn of ghosts that wail
I will not write a vampire rhyme
I know not how, I have not time
And be it greener than a lime
I will not speak of gooey slime

A yeti's story will you try?
And don't forget a custard pie

I did a yeti once espy
And by its furry hand did die
As to why, I'll tell you why
I'd eaten up my custard pie

Then just what monster shall it be?
Inside the game, what will we see?
And will it give us all a fright?
With claws that scratch and jaws that bite?

I will not write of snapping jaws
I can not draw the scratching claws
I did a yeti once espy
And by its furry hand did die
As to why, I'll tell you why
I'd eaten up my custard pie
I tell you once and once again
I will not scare the boldest men
Nor will I tell a wolfy tale
Or spin a yarn of ghosts that wail
I will not write a vampire rhyme
I know not how, I have not time
And be it greener than a lime
I will not speak of gooey slime

(The bare bones of this poem lodged in my mind and wouldn't get out, so I had to write and post it :D I really want to enter this month but I have exams just around the corner, so can't guarantee anything :()

Scribbles and scrawls, just a collection of fools.
Now, let's refine the inquisitive swine. One. Last. Time.
This cumbersome art of mine.
