RPG Maker MV Release Day

Last night RPG Maker MV was released to people who preordered via the website last night.  Needless to say…  I have been having a bit of fun with the new character generator.  Too bad they don’t allow making taller ‘RPG Maker XP’ style characters, though the new sprites do look better than the ones in VX/Ace.

Today, it’ll be released to everyone at 10:00 AM PST, I’m looking forward to seeing what people make with it. (and seeing what I can make too)

Well, that’s all for now, Have a nice day.


RPG Maker MV has been announced

Well, I don’t usually preorder software, but I felt that it’d be a good idea to get RPG Maker MV, I like that type of software, and want to eventually make a complete game of my own…  If you want to take a look, you can click here to go to their site.  I’m still not very fond of the ‘chibi’ characters introduced in RMVX, At least I can use sprites made for RMXP as they look a lot nicer (Too bad there aren’t too many available, sadly)  So far, I’m torn between VX Ace and RPG Maker 2003 as being the best RPG Maker available, I’m sure that MV will probably beat VX Ace (if for nothing else the cross platform compatibility.)

Here’s a link to their intro video.

You can also get RPG Maker MV at their Steam page.


RPG Maker 2000 is available on Steam

I’ve been a fan of the RPG Maker series for quite some time, though I do wonder why RPG Maker 2000 costs more than 2003 (Although it does cost less than VX Ace at $60)

I’m not really sure what else I should say, 2000 is effectively 2003 missing a few features, though it would be nice to be able to use the 2000 assets in more recent versions of RPG Maker would be nice.

If you want to, you can find it on the RPG Maker 2000 steam page.


RPG Maker 2003 has been released!

Well… this was a couple of weeks ago, but the point still stands, an official release of RPG Maker 2003 has been made, and I’m one happy camper right now.  I’m planning on doing a comparison of RPG Maker 2003, XP, and VX Ace in the near future, so look out for that.

If anyone wants to take a look, Click here.  It’s only 19.99, so it should be worth it for anyone that likes Retro RPGs and would like to try their hand at making one themselves.

In the end though, I’d say that I’m going to stick with RPG Maker VX Ace, which has better looking graphics (Though the chibi characters are a bit annoying for me…) and the flexible scripting system.
