I would like to judge this contest
I've made my farming map concept.
What the map is about:
- Up to 4 players that compete in farming fruits and vegetables
- Selling goods on the market
- A supply/demand market, prices drop and rise
What can players do:
- Plant patches of up to 8 fruits and vegetables
- Spy on other players and the market itself
- Buy mules to speed your harvesting process
- Buy guards to protect your farms from bandit raid events
- Bribe bandits to leave your farm alone (and pillage other player farms)
- Random events (bandit raid, harvest moon, locust swarm, crop flood...)
So far so good!
^Looks awzumly promising!
I'm not going to participate due to lack of skills with triggers and a busy lifestyle, but I'd love to give suggestions - like a game where the player must control one/several vermin and the goal is to eat the fruits and vegetables on a farm without being discovered by the angry farmers - just an idea tho

Here's a WIP.
Trees automatically harvest one of the two resources, Water, from nearby sources, as indicated by the faded blue manadrain lightning.
Trees will also gather water when it rains.
The Wisps are seeds that are used to build new trees or other plants.
Well the design is about controlling farmers, but I was missing the word for the random event. Vermin Infestation! Thanks, you helped
@rulerofiron So what's the other resource? there's water then?
BTw, that Looks awesome can't wait to try it out.. :3
The two resources are water and biomass.
Trees generate biomass automatically from sunlight, but there will be other ways of getting it, such as harvesting it from the nearby grass and such.
EDIT: Attached is a playable WIP.
I'm joining this !
My map's objective is to kill as many humans as possible. Your main unit can use gold to attract them in your claws
So far, WIPs I saw look promising (didn't try yours yet, rulerofiron99, but I'll do it now).
Juno, is your map gonna have puzzles, like "Find the Orb!" ?
It was supposed to be just combat style RPG.. but I'm thinking about putting some puzzles and traps too.. :3
^Nah I've only posted a couple of screenshots for one or two contests as wip proof before.
I would think that you are safe. :3
Also I thought that I would post the first thew stages of me making my map.
It only involves the terrains height leveling and pathing indication for me to help myself set it all out.
I'll post more wips when I could be bothered. You guys are never gonna guess what I am doing. :3
Oh yes and involves water as another clue.
I think we need some testers. . .
Nice looking terrain so far DeathChef
Awwww yeah! I got some pretty rad ideas!
gl everyone! :B
-Edit, I worked on somethin real quick and I will continue it tomorrow morning I am about to pass out right now ahahaha... Here is my first WIP.
WELCOME TO HELL!!!!
Ok, I have changed my game to a less consuming time. So, I have another pretty idea... first, telling you the story:
"You are a great warrior named Lord Vargas sent in a long mission. Your mission went pretty well and you are planning to return to the Castle to celebrate your success but an unexpected event happened while you are gone.... Armies of undead broke through the castle's defense, killed the Knights defending the castle and all townsfolks and even the ruler, its King was slain.
Now, as you return to the Castle... all is in ruin, corpse everywhere and stench of death sorrounds the thin air. You are losing hope but you have known that four great Artifacts were kept in the Castle and only those can defeat the Death Lord and save your castle from being an outpost to the undead!
You have to fight bravely and acquire the Artifacts that was kept in the Castle. Fight through armies of dead and maybe you can also find survivors that might help you fight with the Undead."
So, this is my idea. It focuses in collecting four great artifacts that can defeat the Undead and also if you want to make the game easier... find Survivors and let them join you! WiP Screenshots later!
Seems like there's already a couple of working wips here.. well, lemme post mine too..
Was too lazy to insert puzzles >.< and I still have to edit the cinematics a little bit and complete the fire elemental's spells...
well, it's time to start mine
I should not be saying this before the judging but Juno , your entry right now looks more fit for a Dungeon contest. It just looks like clearing a dungeon with loot of orbs as reward, replace the orbs by any items and it still won't be much farming-like map. (In ORPG's you 'farm' dungeons for items, sets, gold , etc. but they are still dungeon crawers)
My suggestion is to be more creative.
Behold tree simulator 2013
It randomly grows trees that mutiply, grow old and die.
Now the question is, can anything remotely called gameplay emerge from it.
Trolol, I will most likely have to extend this contest, since I'll be gone from the 17th till the 24th. /o/
