RMMV Game Contest $300 + Prizes! All entries win!

So just to be clear, I can only use the base resources and ones explicitly from this site's resource page, I can't use any DLC or initial bonuses that I have like the Coverart Characters or anything that was in a humble bundle, correct?
Piggybacking on this - I assume that assets I make using GIMP specifically for the project are perfectly fine to use, given that I am the creator and I'm creating them specifically for this (and also they're terrible which is the point as it plays to my strength of not being an artist)

We'd prefer this, however we won't disqualify you for any DLC that comes from the official RPG Maker website itself.


@StorminEm @Lakaroth @Kntwriter You've all been added! If you'd like the Jungle Tileset now to add it into the game you're making please feel free to DM me

Any resources you've made yourself, or anyone in your group that's participating in the event are completely fine (And we'd highly suggest uploading them to the resources section too <3 )

I would be willing to participate. All by myself :)
(I'm still trying to figure out whether I can change my nickname on here. If it's possible my name will change to "Padramyr" during the contest. Just for your information ^^)

I'm all in to participate in this contest. Sign me up.

By the way, I won't be working solo so I'm looking for people to collaborate with. I'm going to be handling graphics and level design mostly, but I'll cover all roles if needed. Here are the roles I want to work with:

  • Writer (found one)
  • Eventer/Scripter
  • Musician
  • Sound Effects Designer
I'm good to welcome anyone else who needs a team member regardless of what skill you have. If you're interested in working with me, send me a PM. (blush)

You'd have to make a new game, the rules state the game must be started between the start of this competition to the end of the competition. If you're starting a new game let me know and I'll add you to the list :)

Oof, I may have to drop out of the contest. Basically we have a very lucrative contract coming in and it's going to be very high priority. If I do end up having to drop out I'll at least try to release some scripts to help the competitors.
 
Yoh!

Yeah, uhh... I registered in this site to give it a try to the contest. It's possible for me to enter? Are there still available spots or is already too late? I doubt I will win, but I hope to give at least a little publicity to my game.

If it's no possible is all right, I read that only members can enter, so I more or less just trying my luck here.

Thanks for the answer!
