I don't know if this is against the rules "or" if anyone would generally be opposed to the idea since we could in theory be the next person to create their part, but could you post a few screenshots just as an indication of how it's panning out so far(even if it's really early)? Thanks!

I do hope that there's some way the different parts are somehow tied together, at least, instead of totally random. For example a frame story about the devs working on a game. Also, I'm not quite clear- is the game being passed from person to person sight unseen until the end, or do we get to see the parts as they build?

I assume you're going to upload your beginning here so people can play it Cat?

I doubt this has been done with any of the previous community projects. Usually the public only gets to play it once the game is completed or canceled.

I see. . . I'd hoped the people in line would have some clue of what they were getting into before the tale landed in their lap, so they could prepare, but I guess that's not how it goes. . .

Wow awesome screenies! Let's make a rule to not use any rtp graphics.. :D

Also, I'd happily pick this up but I'm still getting rm2k3 to work with linux so maybe not yet.

I think there's an advantage to working on it asap so you won't get too muich spoiled bout the development so far and there'd actually be a surprise factor in the end.

well, uprc said there'd be 10 entries. there can easily be more added if more people want to submit stuff though so i'm just using that as an estimate.

Actually I'd like to go next-It might take some time for me to get RM2K3 to do what i Want, but I woke with a fresh idea this morning.

It looks like no one else is going to take the reigns so I would like to go ahead and do my part now after you, thecatamites, if that's okay. I'd love for this Chain Game to be a collaboration that puts GamingW in the spotlight and earns a lot of bragging rights, so I'm going to put forth a lot of effort and ideally I'll throw together something fun and interesting....Anyhow, I shouldn't spend my time ranting, just creating, and I'm ready for it.

EDIT: Looks like terrorantula beat me to the next spot, but I would like to follow his entry. I'll just use the time between now and then to plan everything out so I don't just wing it and not feel content with my work.

I really wanted to go next but I know realistically that this is an busy time of year and I don't have the hours to do it right now.

Say I managed to get it handed to me on opportunity 3 or 4, how many days would I be able to work on it for?

For me it will require some planning as a lot of my endeavours to be creative fail because of my uni work. I can plan around it and do more though.

*Just realized he only has two weeks to do his part* SO did that start yesterday or today? I think I can pull off something, and will try to play through the beginning today . . .

I wouldn't dream of it. .  :rolleyes:​.
But seriously, I'd better play through what we have so I can get a sense of the tone of the game before I put mine in.

I have literally one idea for a bad joke that will take up about 2 minutes of gameplay. Unless I think of more once I start, my section will jsut be that. How long is each part meant to be?

OK, mine will probably be WEIRDER than Dilbert, 'Cause I just came up with a pair of  villains that want the Plot Coupon from the hero. They'll be free to be reused in later chapters should one wish.
