Similar to the 1H Blitz one

With the success of 1H Blitz, I’ve decided to take up this contest for now as well. I hope to alternate between the two every few months.

History

Traditionally this contest has been lead by Ghast or Alusq to great success. Unfortunately Ghast stated that he has no plans to continue this contest. So I talked to Alusq and he provided me some great feedback & advice, and encouraged me to go ahead with the contest. Even though MAFC has had its fair share of drama and setbacks, a lot of great results have come out of it nonetheless. One of its biggest issues was gigantic maps that took way too long to complete, so I’ve banned those. :slight_smile: It seems that the loot boxes with assets that Alusq sent everyone was a fun idea, but it’s too much of a hassle for me. Finally, I won’t be giving any submissions any sort of rating. I’ll generally say a few good words as I play it and that’s that.

We can learn from what has worked well and build on this to create an awesome, positive contest.

General Deadlines: :spiral_calendar:

:snowman_with_snow: January & July :beach_umbrella:: MAFC

:seedling: April & October :fallen_leaf:: 1H Blitz

(Yes, 1H Blitz is awaiting further videos & a final poll, but MAFC takes longer to prepare! Deadlines may vary to avoid conflicts with FEE3.)

Guidelines:

Rule of Thirties :three: :zero:

Playable in 30 minutes or less :clock130:

I have a short attention span

I may be slower than you! As the creator, you should be able to beat it in 20 minutes.

30 or fewer enemies :timer_clock:

I need 1 minute to kill each enemy

This includes reinforcements!

Max 30 lines of consecutive dialogue :page_with_curl:

Split up dialogue with map cutscenes

Highlighted 30 lines.

Map size smaller than 30x30 :world_map:

No Vanilla fe7 / fe8 map exceeds 31 in a dimension.

I generally prefer smaller maps. If it’s 30x30 I might still complain as I play it.

Finally,
Make it fun :partying_face:
If you give me troll gameplay, I will probably just stop playing early. :man_shrugging:t3:

If you ignore these guidelines, I may not play your submission. :put_litter_in_its_place:

Original Content? :recycle:

  • Nope! You can use a chapter from your hack.
  • HOWEVER, it must make sense on its own. I won’t be reading up on your project, so we will have no context of your hack.
    • If too many entries don’t seem to make sense as standalone chapters, I may stop accepting these. :expressionless:
  • It should be a fairly :new: chapter, or remade for this contest
  • No chapters that I’ve previously made a video on (eg. “Preview a Hack”)
  • No chapters that were previously submitted for a contest, please

Is this Engine okay? :motorcycle:

I do prefer fe8, but I want to be inclusive.

  • FE6, FE7, or FE8 (but really you should use FE8 - no reskins!) :white_check_mark:
  • Lex Talionis :white_check_mark:
  • SRPG Studio :white_check_mark:
  • Other - probably (but ask me first) :white_check_mark:

(If you aren’t using FEGBA as a base, please share instructions on how to load up your game.)

Suggestions

Clickbait, pls!

  • We want these to be seen :desktop_computer:
  • Include a gimmick to your gameplay :eyes: and help me surpass 19 subs plz.

Document your chapter! :scroll: :pen:

  • Share your experience of creating your entry :rainbow:
  • Post screenshots/gifs of your chapter :metal:t2:
  • Describe the plot / gameplay :open_book:
  • Post the .UPS :file_folder: here

I’m not inclined to play submissions that I know nothing about. :question:

Update post but basically just bumping this

It’s been a lot of fun to try out the 1h Blitz submissions so far. There’s just a few more of those to do (11/15 done), so I am hoping for plenty of MAFC5 entries to try in the next few months. I’ll probably do them chronologically, so if you want your entry played sooner, you could submit before the deadline. Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.
