    Also, as expert in all things RPG Maker (and incidentally in RPG design too), cboyardee aka eric_s has agreed to judge the entries separately from the popular vote and give out his own award. So there'll be two awards, whoa.

    I just finished Crooked Bee 's game....

    EVERYTHING NOW MAKES SENSE!

    Just give he the prize, really. Fantastic work, not only the puzzles, but the great writing and the massive ammount of stuff to read and do. I made mine to be funny, but her's made me laugh out loud many times. :salute:

    How long it took you to do all this?

    You can get it from Steam Workshop as well: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=267184870&tscn=1401953218

    It's the third from the top among the stuff Zed quoted.

    You can also consult this front page post if you want the entries to be more, um, neatly arranged: http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/codex-rpg-maker-contest-entries-a-round-up.92111/

    Thanks :) Took me two days. Or rather, two absolutely sleepless nights plus some time during Tuesday-Thursday in-between doing work-related thingies (thankfully it's a bit of a down time at work atm).

    But did you, like, actually discover all the 3 or so endings? (Not to count the defeat in the boss battle.) I thought it would take longer!

    Also did you

    manage to enter the bunker as commie?

    Ahn... no? I only got two endings: Teleporting out of Brenda and solving the riddles and solving the 5 riddles to face Sirotek...

    Also, I couldn't get into Cleve's bunker... I tried everything from completing B__y __at to some key dates, but nothing worked. :(

    wasn't edited in. you must have been temporarily blind.

    I played all the entries besides felipepepe because I cant download from mediafire and I have no idea how the steam link works. I pressed subscribed but nothing happened and I don't know where to launch it from.

    here are my notes so far:
    Show Spoiler

    dark path - xi

    holy shit. very well-made. obviously incomplete, but this is advanced rpg making.

    days of spring- mastermind

    very jrpgish dialogue and a lot of filler combat, but also some good fights and well-"designed" characters.

    game dev soup - xu fugui

    well-written, great up until filler combat in maze

    out of element - niektory

    I like the limited vision thingy but I didnt like the fights

    excape from liberal hell - broseph

    p. funny, but the dungeon is not very well-designed and there is too much filler combat

    grimoire super demo - crooked bee

    best concept, funny, no filler combat

    - You should try using Neanderthal Sense inside the "door dungeon" (as I call it). This should lead you to a secret ending.

    - It's a pretty tricky Codex lore check, basically. Might be the most obscure "branch" in the entire game. There are also three hints: one of the messages in the nearby area, the key terminal itself, and the message it says. Though the solution isn't quite straightforward.
    I'll PM you the answer to this; don't want to post it here yet.

    Funny, I got the Neanderthal Sense ending first. Also got into cleve's bunker as commie. Was a pretty cool puzzle.

    Yeah, didn't have time to work on them, I focused on making sure you can avoid them all (except the boss). Not an excuse, of course, they should be better. Did you get the good ending?

    I was going for a typical shounen anime style so while you probably didn't mean it as a compliment I'm happy it comes across that way.

    Zed Could you also upload your game to filedropper, dropbox or mediafire? I can't extract your game for some reason, tried twice now; might be an incomplete download or smth.

    very good!
    very kawaiisu feelgood, but also silly and abrupt.
    you should make a proper game sometime! it would be desu-tastic!

    for some reason my game is humongous in size. I zipped the extracted files instead.

    can you access this? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzPywt6ChReaNEpIeVFpa0RBZTQ/edit?usp=sharing

    One cool thing I just noticed is that everyone is sharing their game with the edit option enabled, so if you see something awesome and get curious about how it was done, you can just open the project and check it out. :)

    Xu Fugui , yours have some really nice lines, but I feel like you got lost between making a parody and a proper game... also, too much text!
