Topic: Genre Shift
This month's guidelines were set by Crystal Shard.

Have you noticed how big companies take an existing concept and use it everywhere? For example, there's Pac-Man the Boardgame. Super Mario has starred in anything from racing games to party games to a full-fledged RPG. World of Warcraft is a MMORPG that started as a strategy game and now has everything from a trading card game to collectible figurines to a movie. But why should big companies have all the fun? We can do that too!
The goal for this month is to take an existing game (of any age) and remake or demake it in a different genre. For example, you could take a first-person shooter like Doom and remake it as a point-and-click adventure... or you could take Monkey Island and remake it as a platform game! It's fine to make it a parody or change the names, as long as you make clear which game you were inspired by. No further restrictions.



Ending:  October 31st

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.

Yeah, my mind is racing with all the possibilities. I was thinking of a Mario Kart prequel in P'n'C form where he has to find the parts to actually build his Kart. Feel free to nab that idea, anyone. It's not like I can copyright it, anyway.

Hi,

Inspired by 90's platform Sonic the hedgehog (and friends).

if I get enough free time my idea would be: "Sonic and friends: Club-House"... A number of famous 90's platform characters will join Sonic and will work as a team.

This game will come away from being just a 'platform' game and become a full point and click ags adventure game.

Each player will have their own personal skills. Incorporating Inter-changeable main player.

Solve problems and complete tasks as they try to complete their 'Club-House' opening.

Who will be your favorite character? (laugh)

Update:
Sonic and friends obtain the lease to a house that they plan to turn into their 'Club-House'.

They find that the house is in more than a need of a few repairs as a man calls to repossess the house...(laugh)

Further Update: All the characters will naturally be my own work based on the originals.

I love this idea, and my mind keeps making up stuff like a Loom Arkanoid, I'll see if I have the time to whip out something.

Inspired by 90's platform Sonic the hedgehog (and friends).

Hahaha, this reminds me of a friend that tried to convince me to make an AGI Sonic game, because he loved the idea of having Sonic move super slow around the screens, this is as far as I went:

Yeah, I'm (kind of) in the middle of my own game... but I could so see for instance...

Mega Man X, Zero, and Axl in a Quest for Glory style game--except with a futuristic feel, natch.

Or, Quest for Glory done in a Zelda-style game.

Or Space Quest as a Mega Man clone, even?  (At the very least, Space Quest done in the style of Commander Keen)

"I don't understand 'roll'"

I actually had an idea to make a DOOM game AGS using the original sprites which didn't quite take off. Dunno if I'll be able to put anything together but I wish everyone the best of luck, this seems like a fun theme :D
Quote from: CaptainD
My suspicion is that an accident, probably caused by a lightning storm and a mad professor, resulted in Amayirot's brain becoming inextricably linked to the databases behind MobyGames and LemonAmiga.

A couple years back I was thinking about doing something similar with DOOM sprites/textures, but an RPG version. Question is, would that be an option here? Usually one can’t use pre-existing assets with MAGS, or does this month’s theme throw that restriction out the window? In the guidelines above it does say “No further restrictions.”

That's Alex Kidd, Sega's original mascot who had a few games before being supplanted by Sonic.

Usually one can’t use pre-existing assets with MAGS, or does this month’s theme throw that restriction out the window?

Can we get an official ruling on this from either the theme chooser or Stupot?

This might be a major factor in people deciding if they are in or not...

I would bend in favour of allowing ripped graphics and other assets from games to be 100% acceptable:

Or else we would be asking everyone to recreate the assets from at least 2 games that dozens of devs worked on for months or years, and to get that done within a month as well as building a game out of it...

So...what's the ruling?

Good point Ross,

I myself ripped the characters (to copy) for my game but I made my own versions by redrawing them...I mean, sonic without sonic..preposterous (laugh)

Mind you, to just rip and use.. Possibly...

Re: MAGS October "Genre Shift" (OPEN)
« Reply #18 on: 03 Oct 2016, 17:42 »
I'm inclined to stick to the official rules. Granted, we're ripping off other people's IPs already, but it's better to have some fun making new genre-shifted versions of them with a personal touch.

I really doubt that I'll actually do this, but the theme made me wonder: can I pull out a graphic adventure out of one of the most popular but also hated games of the last years? So I started drawing and this is what I got so far.

Spoiler: ShowHide




If you're lucky enough to not know these characters, they're from Candy Crush Saga.

I still haven't finished any backgrounds or even figured out how to even make the game actually work. So... no. Not much progress at all. But I do hope to get 1 or 2 backgrounds finished today.

I still I have 2 weekends to work. Since I'm not struggling with my own art style like I was in the past and I should already have the knowledge for doing the majority of the stuff for the game, it shouldn't be a problem.
I did finally get around to setting up the base GUI yesterday, but I need to make it look nicer. And none of my backgrounds are finished, so all I have that I could show are images of Simon...

That sounds like a joke, but I'm not completely sure. If it's not a joke, then I have absolutely no idea how to do coding for such a thing.
But I am about to work on graphics for awhile. So I should have something to show by the end of the day.

As long as it's a genre shift between the FPS/simulation/VR genre of "Eruption" and the point-and-click genre of "Toffee Trouble in Creamville" then I'm excited!!!

Story:

Sonic is left the lease to a house by his uncle Colonic who is recently deceased, in his Will.

Sonic and his friends plan to turn the house into their 'Club-House' for secret meetings and party's.

I've been working on something in my free time since day one, but the graphics alone take me forever since my artistry is lacking at best. It consists of me manipulating basic shapes to look somewhat like things I want. Plus I over reached as usual with too many rooms :(, but still hoping I can pull it together for a finished playable game.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

I am totally in love with this concept :D And the title.

With less than 2 hours to go, I honestly don't know if I'll be able to finish in time. It's borderline.

OMG cheKKen!!!

DOWNLOADING NOW!!!

What a cool idea, you two! Luv yas!

EDIT: Just played the game and it was amazing in its retro arcade feel. I know it's a demo and obviously you would need all the chess pieces and quite a few more fighting moves to make it into something people would want to come back to and play again and again. An AI opponent campaign would also be nice: in itself a huge challenge, and the final Boss is the king obviously...

But I do see the potential of this idea to really take off and become a popular game outside of the AGS community...

And I used to LOVE playing Battlechess back on my old c64, even though I suck at chess. So, with your game, even people who can't play chess for the life of them can still claim to have won a game.

Don't forget a special announcement for beating the king: "CHECKMATE!" in an awesome FPS announcer's voice like "MULTIKILL!"

Whilst the game is cute in itself and it is quite fun to knock the hell out of each other, and I know its a kind of demo but it's all over in a flash and the scripting really was not over hard. I would say it should have had at least 8 levels with variants as it is it's a one-roomed wonder that ends not long after it begins which is a shame.

None-the-less: Not a bad bit of chess thumping (laugh)

Not quite cigar time :~(

Hey guys, please bear with me... This was my first attempt at coding a game with AGS. And it was my first attempt at coding a fighting game. There is still a kick-style lower attack on the to-do-list, which I couldn't finish in time. And there are even more vague ideas floating around... So, depending on spare time and a proper mood we might flesh out the game a little more. No firm promises though :grin:

Kind regards, Raeff.

If this is the case then you did well with your first game in such a short space of time (nod)

Another fun game from Slasher! I really like the use of different characters in this one, and the puzzles were very good. Great work! :D

This game has a lot of potential, and works really well as a demo. The concept is great, and the graphics and animations are lovely. A full game would be fantastic!

Yeah. There are many factors at play. But I've come to think that more conceptual topics (like shifting genres) tend to get a lot of early buzz but little in the way of participation.

I will say I loved the topic and really did intend to submit an entry that I was working diligently on, but did not complete in time. I was somewhat hoping for a small extension like VampireWombat, but can't be upset since everyone has the same deadline. Which isn't a big deal except that I'm sure most of us like more entries to play and vote for. I will post my game to the completed games thread sometime soon (as there is no rush now) for whomever to play.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Sorry Twirly. I missed that you were also working on something. Of course what I said to VW would have applied to you too. That's totally my fault. I hope to see the game soon. It will get special mentions :-)

Everyone. 5 more days of voting. It's pretty close but we could do with a few more voters, if you have time :-)

Just finished Sonic and I must say, it's a nice little game! I enjoyed that each character had his own special abilities and how they had to work as a team. I also enjoyed the puzzle about walking on the roof.
I just wish that it was a little more polished, for example when
Spoiler: ShowHide
using the toolbox on the tap there was just a generic response. I'd have expected some information that there is no appropriate tool inside and was a bit confused why I can't do it.

Also, Luigi walks to some weird locations after interacting with any of the kitchen cupboards.

Hi,

Whilst it was nice to win this months MAG the number of entrants was dismal to say the least.

Thank god for cat's and Raeff 'cheKKen' entry which was a bit different and quite fun ;)

Come on you game makers: Take time out for the next MAG and give us your 'September song' (nod)

We're still waiting for the Crimson flash to make an appearance (laugh)
