Hey y'all.

Looking to host a Game in a Day for 2019, since no one else has this year.

I've got a theme in mind and money to give away.

I'm thinking we do it similar to the way I did it in 2017. There is a define 2 week period (Dec 8 to Dec 22), where you pick your 24-hour period. I'll tell you the theme at that point and you can start to makgam.

I'll post more rigid rules soon but it'll probably follow the same format (hopefully with more rigidness and people who wants to judge) as my 2017 contest:

Makes sense? let me know if you have any input or anything
Can the entries be judged based on relative scoring instead of number scoring?

For example:

#1 in Music: Dog Game
#2 in Music: Cat Game
#3 in Music: Bear Game

as opposed to

Music for Dog Game: 0.5693497 out of 76.5
Music for Cat Game: 0.262962936970304 out of 76.5
Music for Bear Game: -1101306340739460.13429462947 out of 76.5

you can DM me on Discord for the fastest entry, pager might take me a bit of time to see tbh. just let me know before you want to start your 24 hours or whatever, and I'll send along the unholy theme.
Just stumbled back into BYONDland. I'll take a crack at it after a few years haitus.
I'm willing to extend this further into January if it means more contestants.
Would definitely love to join in on this! C'mon lazy bones around BYOND. If more people join and you extend it into January I wouldn't mind donating to the prize pool, SSX.
makgam
I haven't touched dream maker in a while but I'd be willing to throw my hat in the ring if any amount of cash were to be offered for 1st and 2nd place. Would be a motivator to make it feel like I'm actually getting something out of it other than a game I'm throwing in the dumpster.
There will definitely be a prize pool for at least 1st and 2nd. With the amount of completed entries (4 so far) and JoltFire starting tonight at midnight, I don't think it warrants a third place prize. We'll see.

I've been sick/busy the past few days but will take more entrants if people tell me ASAP.

thx.
Sorry for the delay and all. The judges have decided.

See http://wiki.byond.games/mgiad2019 for a quick table of the scores and the included link for each judge's detail on the ranking process.

I've also decided on changing the reward structure - all participants that makgam'd and submitted a game will get something. See the link above for rationale. Happy belated Holidays.
Damn, stuff came up and i never got a chance to even get on and see yall extended the date. Did one of you buy me a membership for some reason?
