Well, I guess that means that all the work I put in was for nothing.
Enjoy a sprite I made for the game.


Guess I can put all of my focus into my own game now...

Yeah, I'll try again in a future MAGS--next time I'll have to do it myself so I don't unintentionally stress out possible teammates.

I don't think you necessarily *have to* do the thing all by yourself next time, DBoy. If you're worried that your potential team member might be disappointed, it should be fine just to ask them in advance if they'd be ok with you dropping out in case you couldn't finish.

30 days is a demanding deadline, it's not uncommon that people give up on their MAGS attempts.

Or at least give the person you're working with a chance to suggest a compromise before you publicly drop out.

As for the future, I'd be willing to convert the sprites I made to be able to be used with other backgrounds.

Look! A three headed lemur!

Yeah, I agreed to help someone else with graphics and haven't actually progressed with my game at all. The good news is that I've learned enough this month to know I have enough time to make all the graphics needed. The bad news is that I still haven't figured out the design for the alien...

I'm close to being finished. I'm really appreciating VampireWombat's graphics work.

Well, I just created a title screen and difficulty screen, both in an attractive default gray.
Today is the day I begin actual work for my game.

We're on track.  (nod)
Only some few minor details (and proofreading) is now missing.  :-D

In New Kid Gotta Steal Somethin', Logan gets bullied into stealing a costume from a theater-actor's house.

I fear I am simply too exhausted to finish my game by the deadline. My legacy must live on through Durq's game.

Just the two this month. Oh well, that still counts as a competition. Thanks to everyone who took part, even if you didn’t manage to finish your entry. Look out for the voting poll very soon.

Mandle just found a small bug in the game. So I'll be fixing it with v1.01 after lunch.
Make sure you read the letter before doing anything else...  (laugh) ;)

Edit: version 1.01 is now up.  :)

Played and voted! I like how you both interpreted the theme differently but really funny.

New Kid Gotta Steal Somethin
Spoiler: ShowHide
The character sprites are great and the costume hilarious but the backgrounds felt a bit empty. The puzzles were mostly trial and error for me. It felt a bit unfinished.

Great graphics and hilarious costume. The puzzle with the lock was actually quite difficult but I liked that. In the carriage scene I was not sure if I should collect the small birds or not. It was clever that I had to use my weapon to slay the dragon. It's a pity that it was a bit rough around the edges with missing interaction responses. The voice acting added to the fun. The screen with the hammer that was shown between scenes was great.


Regarding both games:

I thought it was a funny coincidence that both games had scenes where you could die with auto-save.

Thanks so much for the feedback, cat. Which puzzles did you need to use trial and error to pass?
