  • When I say "I researched", I actually mean that I went to the Wikipedia page and read the first paragraph at the top.

    Me too though. Except when it's something I actually require for school.
    If somebody makes a text game using ascii art as a stand-in for graphics, would it still be a text game?

    I vote no. The text is not being used as text, it's being used as graphics.

    I know about roguelikes in general and that game as well as dwarf fortress. Not my thing.
    I don't know why IGN even bothers to write reviews, people only seem to care about the scores.

    The reviews don't always match the score. Not much reason to pay attention to these "professionals."

    RPG enthusiasts paying attention to professional reviews/scores in this day and age? From what I've seen only action/adventure games with light to almost no actual rpg elements stand a chance to see a decent score by 'professionals' anyway. Being a preferred genre of mine I had to stop paying attention to them, refuse to believe that Fallout 4 Farcry: Wasteland is among the best rpgs can do in 2016.


    When it gets to the point where you're actively seeking out games with the worst scores you can find because you find yourself enjoying them more than anything with an 8+ score you kind of realize that there aren't really very many professionals out their representing your particular tastes anymore. Much better to seek out lets plays and judge for yourself based on the game itself rather than rely on opinions that may or may not even consider the aspects of the genre that are actually important to you.

    and oh, most of them are graphic enthusiasts too.. Anything not super eye-candy gets insta low scores.

    Spend an hour making a 5 minute game. Congrats, you just finished your first game.

    When I was 12 I made a short game using DBGames (I think that was the name of the engine?). It was an old dos engine that was around from 91 - 95. Anyways, it only took a week, but it was done. Sure, the game was terrible, but I had a game done.


    Then I went in and made a sequel using what I learned, and it was much better (at least for a 12 year old who had played like 3 RPG's so far, so the bar is still pretty low!)

    I will make a game one day, but right now my main focus is honeing my pixel art skill. I love the art aspect of Game Dev. Also, note that it's possible to make a game all on your own (note: undertale, cave story, stardew valley...all were made by only one person.), but it took quite a bit of time...rpg maker is easy enough for a kid to understand, but it won't shave any time off the process. Just don't give up :)  . Maybe find an area of game dev and (coding, art, writing, audio...) and study that a whole.

Building on the previous post, why stop at titlescreen idle videos? Now you can have videos as splash screens before the title screen too! [Free Plugin]
Still, a lot to be done. But already did a lot of things for the MZ version! And it is already working ^^
I just returned to school one week ago, AND THE TEACHERS HAVE ALREADY GAVE US 28 ASSIGNMENTS, PROJECTS AND TESTS!
Online school sure is draining :'/

Still working on a few pixel projects- first, working on a fan tileset that I plan to drop soon. Second, returned to my Meat Market icons today and knocked out an additional eight. Up to 41 icons for meat products. Have another 14 icons planned before I run out of ideas.
