Pixel Game Maker MV Development Challenge Underway
Grand Prize of More Than $9,000 USD (¥1,000,000 JPY), Game Published on Nintendo Switch
TOKYO – Oct, 7, 2019 – The Pixel Game Maker MV Game Development Challenge, a contest seeking talented developers using the intuitive yet fully-featured 2D game engine from Playism and Kadokawa Corporation, is now underway.
Taking place until March 30, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. PT, the competition offers a grand prize award of ¥1,000,000 JPY (approx. $9,332 USD) and opportunities to be among the first Pixel Game Maker MV creations published on Nintendo Switch. In addition to the grand prize, there are award categories for side view, top view, multiplayer games, and more. Winning entries may also be adapted into books, comics, and more.
Sister software to RPG Maker, which sold more than 2,000,000 copies worldwide, Pixel Game Maker MV puts 2D game development in the hands of first-time developers with no programming knowledge while maintaining the flexibility, power, and depth required by long-time game creators through extensible scripting.
Featuring native physics and local multiplayer support as well as 20 sample games and a host of modern, sci-fi, and fantasy assets, Pixel Game Maker MV makes it easy to get started prototyping. Developers can carry their games through to completion using the assets to hand or import their own to create top-down or sidescrolling action games in any genre.
“If you can imagine it, you can create it with Pixel Game Maker MV,” said Noboru Mogami, producer, Kadokawa Corporation. “With this contest, we’re hoping to find amazing talents to highlight and nurture. We’ve already seen some truly wonderful things come out of our community so far and we’re looking forward to the delights our creators still have in store for us.”
Pixel Game Maker MV is available now on Steam in Japanese, English and Simplified Chinese for $84.99 USD/€71.99.
The full official rules can be found on the Pixel Game Maker MV Game Development Challenge page. For more information about the engine, please visit the Pixel Game Maker MV official website, Facebook page and follow @PixelGameMaker on Twitter.
