Introducing FanGames and Programs Monthly Highlight!

Fan Games / Apps

Every month we will highlight a new game that is actively being developed at FG&P! TragicManner will be reaching out to game creators and asking them questions about their projects and then sharing with you all what I learned about the process behind their project, why they decided to start making their game, and more!

Often times there are questions about a project that don’t really fit into the conversation that goes on in a game’s thread. Hopefully the highlights will provide some insights into projects that simply wouldn’t happen elsewhere.

July's highlight is...

I’ve had a lot of fun watching Happup’s development. The first thing that really struck me about the project was the speech bubble that Punkkitt showed off a while back. Some of my favorite games involve systems of communicating to the player without actual text and dialogue, and I think that Happup, with its simple yet beautiful art style and iconic world design, has great potential for doing just this. Happup is a cool looking project that I think a lot of people are watching with keen interest. - TragicManner

Fanworks Friday - Dear oh Dear Diary

Fanart

It's Friday, Friday! Gotta get down, Starmen! How has your week been? I'm here this week to announce the new Fan/work winners!

This week's Fanart of the Week winner goes to herrmichi for his adorable Ness' Diary project

Though new to the forums, herrmichi came in swinging with Ness' Diary. Though it only accounts the events up to Winters at this point, it definitely stands up and deserves this award. Not only is this series adorable, but it is very unique as well. I think MariettaRC perfectly summed it up.

"The art is so adorable, it’s perfect for something like this. It’s so innocent and child-like, it perfectly captures the adventure from Ness’ POV."

I hope to see future installments! Enjoy your new badge, you have certainly earned it.

Remember to submit your Mother-related fanart/music for the chance to see your work featured!

Hey, guys! I am so excited to bring this news to you today. Starting today, the first Monday of every month, we will be announcing the winner of this contest. The event in question?

Why, Fanfiction of the Month, of course!

That's right, it's back! Though it's been gone for four years, it has made its triumphant return.

Every month, we go through the forum's Writing Board and at on the 1st, we will choose the story we think is most deserving of the award. Winners will receive this beauty.

To qualify, simply post any fanfictions relating to the Mother-series on the Writing Board. Even submissions to the Monthly Prompt Post will be looked at! Don't forget to proofread!

This month's winner is Catharsis with "Cosmic Destroyer".

It is a story that follows Mother's main antagonist, Giegue, through the beginning of his childhood to the bitter end as he falls into victim to his own insanity. The fanfiction is completed, so you can read the entire story here.

Congratulations, Catharsis! Enjoy your new badge!

Theories - From Dungeons to Dounuts

Articles

Are you guys ready for some more theories?

If you remember, you were given the prompt two weeks ago: Why does Brick Road have such a fondness for dungeons?​ Is it a deep-rooted childhood mental phenomenon? Does he owe some sort of debt to a dungeon-loving friend? Or is it perhaps something entirely different?

There were some great responses, but the Theory of the Week Winner is StarstorMew!
