Unfortunately, a prize was overlooked in our last announcements!

The fan favorite of the RPG Maker for the Not So Bright Screenshot Contest was won by [JCGG] Jomarcenter for this screenshot, a reference to a fairly notorious RPG Maker demo he had made in the past.

You, also, have won a single resource pack through Steam!

Hey RMers!

Sorry about the delay, we had a lot of awesome workshop entries to go through, and then we had to take a bit of time to lock down the final prizes themselves. But the time is upon us, the time to learn who won all the prizes and what they won! (to claim your prize, contact me at community@rpgmakerweb.com)

First off, we had the RPG Maker for the Not-So-Bright Screenshot Contest, where screenshots were entered by contestants of dumb things they have done that other people should avoid! And the winner IIIIIIS...

Human-like AI *Sin for teaching us to always remember to save, and to be careful where you point that cut and paste. You have won one RPG Maker DLC on Steam of your choice.

Next, we had our two Giveaways. One for the DLC 2: Return of DLC topic, and the other for having uploaded something to our Workshop in the first week.Our two winners here are:

cjfrick13 for uploading Cadolfia to the Workshop, AND alusair1 for his contribution in the DLC 2 thread. They have also both won a single RPG Maker DLC on Steam.

And last, but DEFINITELY not least... Who could have won the best of the first week of uploads on our workshop? Our workshop exploded with games and resources and demos. But one was specifically well liked, and really useful. And that was...

StealthMomo's Day and Night Cycle Resource Pack, compiling several resources (with excellent crediting) to show everyone a simple way to create a dynamic day and night system. StealthMomo has won a 100 dollar Steam Wallet code! Congratulations StealthMomo!

Thank you to everyone for making our Steam Workshop launch a success, and I look forward to handing out more free goodies to our fans. Keep up the good work everyone, and be on the look out for more chances to win!

Tag to Win It! DLC Giveaway Returns!


As some of you may know, Steam has recently implemented a Steam Tagging Beta. Users who opt into this beta can tag games, programs, DLC, etc. with customized categories!

So how do you win things, as the headline suggests? It's simple! Follow the Tagging Guide below for RPG Maker products and we will randomly select two winners on Wednesday every week! Each winner will receive a Steam key for one RPG Maker DLC of their choice!

The first winner will be selected from the pool of entries from the previous week. The second winner will be a cumulative selection, so if you submit an tagging entry tomorrow, you may still end up winning three weeks from now!

For each RPG Maker product you tag (with screenshot proof), you'll receive an entry into the drawing. For example: if you tag VX Ace and three DLC packs, you'll be entered into the drawing four times. For the sake of organization, please keep all of your screenshots contained to one post: you can edit previous posts to add more content.

So what are you waiting for? Get taggin' for a chance to win DLC!


Tagging Guide


Here's how you can access the tagging features and enter this giveaway!

Step 1
First, you'll need to opt into Steam Beta. Here is a guide on how to do this. (Select "Steam Beta Update" from the beta drop-down menu.)

We also recommend reading the Steam Tag Introduction here.

Step 2
After opting into Steam Beta Update, you'll be prompted to restart Steam. This may take a minute or two.

Step 3
After restarting, you can now access the Tagging feature! To tag our products and DLC, you'll need to go to the Store Page of that product. You can add tags on the right-hand side of the screen, as shown in this screenshot:

Click to view image.

Step 4
Take a screenshot of the tags you are using for either RPG Maker XP, VX Ace, or the DLC, like so:

Click to view image.

(Please note that in the screenshot above, you can clearly see which tags are being created, as well as which product is being tagged. We'll need to see both of these things in your screenshot for you to be eligible for the giveaway.)'


Rules


1. To qualify for this giveaway, you must follow the tagging guide mentioned above: in the screenshot, we need to see both the product being tagged as well as all the tags you are applying.
2. Only responses in this topic (as well as anything you posted in the original topic) will count towards the giveaway.
3. You can tag as many products as you want. You will receive one entry into the giveaway for each RPG Maker program or DLC that you tag. However, if you already tagged items in the original giveaway, you can add new tags for this giveaway.
4. Posting inappropriate tags is grounds for disqualification: Steam will be promptly removing such tags as well.
5. For uploading screenshots, we recommend Imgur or a similar program; you can post the hyperlinks in your response here. (Imgur may be banned in your country, in which case you'll want to use another image sharing website.)
6. The drawings will be held just after Midnight UTC on Wednesdays. We will be holding two drawings: one winner will be selected from the pool of entries from the previous week, and the other winner will be selected from the cumulative pull of entries since the start of the giveaway. Tags submitted during the February giveaway will qualify for the cumulative raffles!
7. If you have already tagged a product in a previous week, you can submit again but your tags must be new additions!
8. Contestents can win up to three times. If someone has already one thrice and is selected again, we will have to select a new winner.
9. You can tag games made with RPG Maker if you wish.

    To celebrate RPG Maker's 24th Birthday, we at RPG Maker Web Staff, The RMW Resource Staff and, RMN decided to do something special!

    For now, let's start off with a contest~
    Any questions? Ask them on our blog over here! It'd be easier for us to track down there than in Steam.

    ENCOUNTERS OF THE BOSS KIND CONTEST


    This will be the first year that we celebrate RPG Maker Day, on February 15th, and to celebrate our 24th Birthday we will be having loads of events, giveaways, and free stuff!

    And to kick it all off we are going to be hosting an awesome game making contest: Encounters of the Boss Kind! This game making contest will be a bit different though in that you will be making the shortest games possible: Just one boss fight. Here are the basic criteria for your entry:

    • No Scripts
    • No custom resources. Only use RTP or official resource packs.
    • The game should have the following structure: Opening Cutscene => Boss Fight => Ending Cutscene
    • Follow the party outline listed in the next section.


    PARTY OUTLINE

    Your party will consist of the following four characters:

    Party Member 1: The Hero

    The Hero uses a sword. He/She has some magic too. He/She is an all arounder.

    1-5 Sword Skills
    1 Healing Spell
    1 Damage Spell
    1 Wild Card Skill (Any Effect)

    Party Member 2: The Healer

    The Healer can use any weapon you would like. He/She focuses on healing and buff skills. His/Her skills can be set up as follows:

    1 Weapon Skill
    1-3 Healing Spells
    1-3 Buff Spells
    1 Wild Card Skill (Any Effect)

    Party Member 3: The Mage

    The Mage uses a staff, but not well. He/She focuses on attack spells and debuffs. His/Her skills can be set up as follows:

    No Weapon Skills
    1-3 Damage Spells
    1-3 Debuff Spells
    1-2 Wild Card Skills (Any Effect)

    Party Member 4: The Wildcard

    This Character is completely undecided. You can make it any kind of character you would like. His/Her skills can be set up as follows:

    1-8 Wild Card Skills (Any Effect)

    JUDGING CRITERIA


    Your game will be judged on the following criteria:

    Storyline/Writing. This will mostly be judged around the Opening and Closing cutscenes, but remember, you can use battle events to insert some lines into the boss fight as well.

    Boss Fight Strategy. How much thinking does it take us to beat the boss. How much do we have to work skill combos and adapt to make it go down.

    Fun. Just how much FUN do we have while playing it.

    ENTERING SUBMISSIONS


    YOUR ENTRY MUST BE IN BY THE END OF FEBRUARY 13th, 2014 (GMT-5)

    Email your Submission to community@rpgmakerweb.com with the title “Encounters of the Boss Kind”
