Welcome to the 2017 INDIE GAME MAKER CONTEST!

We took a year off but we're back to bring you the Third Indie Game Maker Contest! This year we're putting the focus on our flagship game making software, RPG Maker.

Your quest if you choose to accept ("but thou must") is to make a GAME using ANY legal RPG Maker engine in just ONE MONTH: October 4th - November 5th, 2017! Compete for over $10,000 in Cash Prizes!

This year we're hosting the Contest on Itch.io. CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE 2017 IGMC GAME JAM!
