RPG maker is a series of games that has existed for years on various consoles and PC that basically allow you to create your own role playing game, complete with maps, NPC’s and characters. At the bottom i will show some pictures i ripped off the internet to show you what it can do, which honestly is ton more than the pictures seem to indicate if you know how to do it.
Now full disclosure i am making a game using RPG Maker MV , which i purchased off steam a while back. This however is not an advertisement for either RPG maker or my own game, which rpg maker does allow you to sell and get green lit on steam as your own creation. Most people never do that, but you can find quite a few games on there ranging from complete and utter garbage ( there was game on there called rape whistle a while back, tho i hope its gone) to some i’m told are really good. My game however will never see the light of day, even if i finish it its just for fun and is admittedly pretty bad.
All that being said you can do a lot with the program and that becomes even more if you know anything about HTML coding and Java Script. There is also an insanely interactive and mostly friend community to offer up help and ideas in creating your game which will basically be SNES or Sega Genesis quality. There also what are known as plug ins that do various things that are user created and so popular the company has added things to encourage their use, which most creator at most ask for their name in the credits giving the a shout out tho i have seen a few people simply sell for a small amount of cash,
With all that being said, if you have ever been interested in making a game check it out, there are multiple versions with different price points as well as hundreds of videos on youtube and it really is a cool experience to see how it all comes together. I dont use it as much as I would like, and i bought the newest version but i don’t regret it at all . as always thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
