AN EVENT! But didn’t the last one just end!? Well yes, but this one has no deadline, it isn’t so much an event, as it is a challenge. You can do this whenever you want. You can do it next weekend. Or next month. You can even do it next year if you want!
So what is the challenge? First, let me give you a little background about this challenge. One of the things I see a lot of people do when they jump into RPG Maker… and well us veterans too, is that we tend to have our games accidentally sprawl. We say “This is just going to be a short game right, just a simple story and… oh, look at that, it has 108 characters, 30 towns, and a story that sprawls through three notebooks.”
This challenge is about the opposite of that. This challenge is about completing a game. A small game. and there are a few restrictions to keep it small:
- 1 map
- 10 events (common and map)
- 10 variables
- 10 switches
- RPG Maker MV, 2000, 2003, XP, VX, or VX Ace
Plugins/Scripts are allowed, but can’t be used to bypass the above. Remember, the spirit of the contest is to make something small and finish it! So no bypassing the restrictions through clever tricks to simulate multiple maps. We understand events will probably have to do multiple jobs sometimes, but keep that to a minimum.
Submit the game on our forums in the completed games forum, and then post a link in the challenge submission thread here!

Anyone who finishes will get a cool new event-badge for their forum account. Have fun everyone and we hope to see you complete this challenge!
