I was caught off guard by this, felt it right in my tum. I don't know how/if I can do spoiler text so I don't really know what to say but this definitely gave me some feelings and I loved that. I love the way that you wrote everything, it has such a good feeling to it that I can't describe.

I really love the art and the peaceful music. The cute decorations are wonderful! The alien designs are super rad! The only thing I goofed up was trying to serve the dishes. For some reason I kept forgetting how to do it. For someone so cute... Geez.
Hello! I liked how 7 tricked me a bit. It wasn't super hard but it took a few tries because it's so hardwired into me when I'm playing games that I need to COLLECT EVERYTHING. Really wanted that second key lol. Something cool I noticed was that at first I had tried to count tiles. 3 left, 1 down, etc... But I couldn't remember well and it made me do worse. When I just focused on the look of the map it got a lot easier. Floor 10 was my first game over. I'm really bad at memory games so I'm not sure if that's good or not. It's really cute and I love the little knight and the music. The "Nooo!" message was great as well!
Thank you! I really love making maps.
It isn't really original or anything so I feel kind of lame. The idea of a mysterious spreading darkness is nothing new and I'm not sure if I'm going to subvert anything along the way. I haven't worked out all the details because I knew that if I sat down and wrote it all out and planned I'd have no time left to do the actual game. If I had known about this event sooner I'd have something already written and ready to work with.
I'll make a post tomorrow about the story, hopefully it'll work out okay. I can't really figure out how to do scenes so I'm getting pretty nervous about the upcoming deadline.
My first version of the overworld map. It was really small and cramped but I liked the general locations for things.
Here's the current version! More places, more details. I have a little trouble using the RPGMV tiles, the way they overwrite each other is a little frustrating at times. The repetition in the mountains bothers me a bit but it'll have to do- I've gotta work on towns and story!
I have some story I'm working on but I feel weird sharing it, ideally I'd want people to find out through playing it. It does kind of help to know though, right? I know the main character takes care of and lives in something of an enchanted forest. He gets sort of dragged into helping others find the cause for a spreading... something? It needs a lot of work but to be fair it is based off of a dream I had a few months ago lol
Fantasy RPG made with RPG Maker MV
Possible Themes: Protecting Nature & Each Other, Cooperation, Community
I've not been able to do as much as I'd like so far, things have been very chaotic. I've posted what little I've done to Twitter rather than here but I'll try and do better about that moving forward. I started off trying out Stencyl (which crashed after my first hour of use, it was a good start lol) but ended up trying out RPG Maker once I realized the free trial was long enough to finish the Jam and it fit what I needed better. Here's the first RPGM screenshot I have so far, it's just a practice map though. I'm currently watching tutorials so hopefully I'll make something even better by tomorrow night.
1. Hi there! What's your name? Want to introduce yourself?
My name is Quinn and I've recently graduated with a bachelor's in English. I'm not really sure what else to say!
2. Did you participate in the last jam we held? If not, what's your reason for joining?
No, this is the first time I've heard of the Jam. I want to learn something and try to go out of my comfort zone. I haven't created anything in years and I miss that. I miss being able to make things and have fun with creation. My perfectionism tends to really hurt me but with the time constraint I'll have to just do my best instead of obsessing over Unobtainable perfection, I hope.
3. What games are your favorites? Did any of them inspire you, or made you want to make your own?
Pokémon will always be the closest to my heart but a recent favorite is Mariokart. Final Fantasy IX & all of the Tactics are also games I really adore. I've thought, mostly jokingly, that it'd be fun to be in the design team for a game. Coding and building aren't something I thought I'd ever try, just the concept and designs of things.
4. Do you have experience with game development?
Nope, I'm very much a first-timer.
5. Tell us about something you're passionate about!
Civil rights and diversity are very important to me. I can't think of a character in media that's like me and that kind of sucks. Resource conservation is something to work forward with too.. I also feel strongly about pineapple on pizza- it's the superior topping.
6. What are your goals for this game jam?
Just to try and do my best and learn something new. I can only get better since I'm new.
