Remember the AGBIC competition inspired by the Famicase exhibition?

We got Matt's blessing and we're resurrecting it this year! Just like Famicase, we want this to be a fun process that is all about creating cool things, so we decided to go without the competition part. There won't be any voting or prizes or anything, just a jam about making real games based on fake cover art.

I hope you guys don't mind.

The jam will start on June 20 and end on August 16.

Save the date.

Should this be moved to the jams forum? I'm planning on making BIRD RPG: http://famicase.com/14/softs/69.html

I am half tempted to go with this one because I like Dragon Quest (which it is parodying) a lot and I had to do a bunch of detective work just to figure out what the hell it is supposed to be about. I put the description text through google translations and got:

Quote
Doragenai ★ Quest
Bitterling No. 2 / graphic designer

By former fellow of the hand that fell into the hands of the evil , the world it has been closed in darkness . In the land of the light ! Your adventure , now , it began . Taking 2 Konmaiku in hand, and I shout in a loud voice ! " Doragenai ! "




Apparently "konmaiku" are controllers, which I was able to figure out thanks to this site (though I am not sure if maybe "controller" is referring to something other than a game pad or such, it sounds like it may also be referring to the walkie-talkies):
Quote
一緒に行こうよ鬼が島
あなたの助けが必要です
2コンマイクに叫んでみても
だーれも来てくれない

issho ni ikou yo oni ga shima
anata no tasuke ga hitsuyou desu
2 konmaiku ni saken de mite mo
daare mo kite kurenai

Let’s go to the demon island together!
Your help is needed!
Even if we yell out with 2 controllers,
no one will come.




To figure out what "Doragenai" means (and learning why the game is called "Dragenight Quest"), after some scouring this site explains it:

Quote
In the music video, there is a scene where Kyary sings with a big transceiver.
As it is known in "Dragon Night" performance by SEKAI NO OWARI, a popular band her boyfriend Fukase belongs to, the fans are going crazy over it, saying "Kyary-chan does the 'doragenai'!".

"Doragenai" is an internet slang coming from "Dragon Night" which is going viral these days, and many collage images of different people holding a big transceiver have been made.



You learn something new every day. Though if anyone can read the original text and wants to break it down for me I'd appreciate it.

Always find out about this one late, I blame compohub for being empty all of a sudden Sad
Might consider joining despite being late.
