 Welcome to the 2017 Indie Game Maker Contest!

We took a year off but we're back to bring you the Third Indie Game Maker Contest! This year we're putting the focus on our flagship game making software, RPG Maker.

Your quest if you choose to accept ("but thou must") is to make a GAME using any legal RPG Maker engine in just ONE MONTH! Compete for over $10,000 in Cash Prizes!

 RULES

Before you open up the map editor and place that first event, make sure to read through the Contest Rules HERE!

The Rules page includes all the information you'll need to make sure you meet the contest requirements. Breaking the rules can lead to penalties, or even disqualification, so make sure to view them before getting started. It also includes Prize Conditions and Legal

 PRIZES

The most important goal of the IGMC is to make that game you've been dreaming of, and what better motivating factor than a large cash prize! This year we're limiting the prizes to the following:

  • 1st Prize
  • 2nd Prize
  • 3rd Prize
  • People's Choice

The first three prizes will be determined by a team of Judges. The “People’s Choice” will be determined by a public vote after the contest is over.  More details to follow HERE.

Like last IGMC, the Cash Prize amount will be tied to Humble Bundle sales. The more bundles we sell, the higher the cash prize! Prize pool starts at $10,000!

This bundle is jam packed with all the tools you need to make your own game. It's also a special opportunity to get the entire line of RPG Maker software, including our latest edition, RPG Maker MV, at a HUGE discount! We're talking $679 worth of awesome stuff.
