There is a new Humble Bundle of interest to game developers, the RPGMaker Resurgence bundle. In addition to the bundle, there is also a RPG Maker game jam, which has a prize pool that will increase with the number of bundles sold.
The primary contents of this bundle include:
- RPG Maker MV (Newest version in bundle)
- RPG Maker VX Ace
- RPG Maker VX
- RPG Maker XP
- RPG Maker 2003
- 45+ DLC items
If you are wondering if the DLC content can be used in other game engines, the answer is ultimately “it depends” as each piece of DLC has it’s own license which may or may not permit usage in other game engines.
The Game Jam, Indie Game Making Contest:Rebirth has the following theme:
Ahead of your adventure, be sure to plan your game around the theme of our contest! So what is that theme?
Much like our contest itself contest itself coming back from the beyond, we wish to see games following the theme of Rebirth/Rejuvenation/Resurrection. All three words mean similar things, but are still slightly different. You can use any of those three words as the theme of your game.
Remember: Your game must use one of those as it’s theme to be a valid entry!
The Game Jam ends August 4th, 2022. The prizes will change based on the number of bundles sold, but the baseline prizes are:
- 1st Prize: $4,000+
- 2nd Prize: $2,000+
- 3rd Prize: $1,000+
- People’s Choice: $2,000+
- Humble Choice: $1,000+
- AbleGamers Choice: 1 Seat in the AbleGamers Certified Accessible Player Experiences Class*
