  • There are a lot of art resources and plugins in the MZ basic resources folder but I wonder how many new MZ users forget to check the folder or have no idea it exists. I remember when I first got MV, I didn't know that it had a basic resources folder until months after purchase.
    Morbius' drop in ticket sales by second box office weekend was not only huge but record-breaking. With Fantastic Beasts 3 around the corner, it might also break a record for highest % dip between opening weekend and 3rd weekend. Depending on how costly the marketing was, Morbius' run might barely do better than breaking even for the studio, and that's death for any possibility of a sequel being greenlighted.

    I kind of think that the superhero paradigm is going out of style now, going the way of the spaghetti western, defined a generation then became so overdone everywhere that it dies a parody of a parody of what it started out as.

    Never heard of Morbius, are they running out of famous ones?:p

    @Philosophus Vagus adaptations of comic books is not the same as super hero movies.
    Watchmen was an adaptation of a comic, and they're not exactly super heroes.
    the thing is, the writers can't come up with new ideas, and they just discovered the ton of comic books out there.
    just brace yourself for when they discover manga.
    I see a new game dev asset humble bundle is up. This one has a nice mix of icons, sprites, tiles, music, and animations. Now I need to check my budget for the month but they have some good stuff I could use in my RPG Maker project.

    I wish Degica would do another RM engine humble bundle thing, I'd love to be able to easily own all of the engines without going over my budget.

    Though Fanatical does has one for VX Ace + Xp (and assets/dlc)
    Imagine if people could RPG steal from animals in real life. Like, where would they even stick their hands? Perhaps a question best left unanswered.

    The final state of the r/place canvas is up. I helped protect Berserk and Omori a few times. It was fun.

    Scotland was under Omori. We had some great alliances. :D

    I watched jacksepticeye review this, and his brain nearly froze by the amount of nested references.
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is coming out this week (and Fantastic Beasts 3 next week). This means the Morbius box office take is likely to tank drastically, and perhaps fail to break even for Sony by the end of run. It could be said that the same principle applies to planning a videogame release date - be wary of release dates from the big studios.

    ? Sonic did really well at the box office, not sure what you're talking about. The first trailer did poorly, but they redid the character design and people thought the movie was decently fun. I didn't even know there was a Morbius movie, that's the Marvel vampire guy right?

    It's the Marvel vampire guy, but the way Sony tried to connect it to the MCU is so bad, it's making people leave the theater with a bad aftertaste even if they somewhat liked the Morbius movie.

    Ouch. Sony's movies are so hit or miss.
    I have contributed a pixel to making the new Omori image on r/place. I feel like a patriot to the cause. Glory to RPG Maker fandom.
    I just noticed r/omori claiming a patch of area in the r/place canvas wars. The RPG Maker fandom has entered the madness.

    The Star Wars poster was originally on the right half of the canvas too. That means the original got covered up and they had to completely recreate it again. Madness.

    Oh yah, they redid it again after someone put a bunch of those among us guys in it haha!
    There's also the dog from undertale hiding to the bottom-left of the Ousa thing.

    Your Turn to Die also has a little spot claimed last I checked!
    They [brought back?] a game called r/place on Reddit where every user can place dots on a map with a 5 minute cooldown. I saw works of art get replaced by other works of art as people competed for spots on the map. It's kind of an interesting social experiment.
    The screenwriters for Morbius apparently also wrote Dracula Untold and Gods of Egypt. The movie now feels like it's going to be like when a beginner with zero relevant skills to begin with puts out a commercial RPG Maker game on Steam and charges a lot of money for it after only a few months learning the system.

    I'm thankful that there are so many notes and tutorials available for RPG Maker stuff. It shaves off so much time trying to make sense of things on one's own. The community is full of beautiful souls.
    Instead of a treasure chest, a pile of adventurers' bones might be more logical for finding treasure in a dungeon, heheh.

    I made a lot of interactable things that can be looted tbh. I like games where exploration and trying things is rewarded :p

    My favourite version of this was an old D&D video game ( Eye of the Beholder? ) where you could find adventurers' bones and then use Raise Dead scrolls to gain new party members.
    Willibab
    Willibab
    That is sick! The raise dead thing....Damn, I got inspired now. Maybe.... Absorb scroll that when used in combat just absorbs mana, but in overworld you can use it to drain water out of a well so you can climb down...or some **** :p I never use scrolls in games, they always feel useless. But if they have an overworld effect...well that changes things :p
    I might pack my game with enough side quests that award XP, gold, and items to make it possible to skip all the normal monster battles in a run through to the end of the main story quest.

    @Dwesper There will still be monsters with rare drops like a typical RPG, but it might not be mandatory to grind monsters to finish the game.

    @Nenen Completionists will have to do both to get everything in the game, but I kind of want to make it possible for people to get by on side quests if they get tired of normal battles.

    Would it technically make the game easier though? I suppose I'm asking.
    Storyteller-Hero

    @Nenen It's about making the game more chill. Not everyone has the same level of enjoyment from different aspects of a game, so I'd like the player to be able to customize their experience of the game to some extent (not to be confused with customizing characters).

    There will never be another Atari Shock tier games recession, because the world will always be depressing in some way and people will always need a new escape from reality, and access to escape will keep getting easier thanks to the spread of technology. Atari Shock came because accessibility was too limited for healthy growth of the industry, and now it's driving the growth of the industry faster and faster.
    The flopping of Babylon's Fall is a cautionary tale of release timing, quality control, and marketing. Games as a service is also harder to sell as a model nowadays due to grind fatigue. When a game becomes an unfulfilling day job, the game next door starts looking sexy.
    Theoretically, although it seems that even a good commercial RPG Maker game would be lucky if it sells up to 1,000 copies in the first year, the existence of a well-planned, budget-invested marketing campaign for such a game may turn that 1,000 into a likely minimum for sales for the first month.
    So apparently budget anime uses 24 FPS, but it's actually the same image per 3 frames, for about 8 images per second. With video editing and camera panning/zoom, the amount of work to animate can be cut down significantly.

    Don't movies also use low fps? I think it has to do with consistency as I've heard high fps movies can cause dizziness when you're exposed for a long time.

    Would have been useful to know this before throwing out the Opening animation out of the window...
    Neat.

I guess I should send my CV to Hasbro. I've made Monopoly cheaters edition more fun and challenging. I've developed custom cheats and chest/chance cards for it. And I've cleared many ruling ambiguities through my cards and rules.
I'm only missing 2 more bgms for my game but maaaaan, searching for these tracks is killing me. Can't find anything good to replace MZ's Theme 2 and Scene 5 I have as placeholders. Everything is too epic or too evil or too alarming. That 'scene 5' track in particular would fit nicely with my scene. Well, at least I finally figured what my last click-fest of a gameplay element will be like, so something positive :D
Finding new interesting stuff to make for the resource calendar becomes harder every year D:

FINALLY got the mood system in the game during battle. Since the game is called Panic Attack, I figured you should have certain moods present including Panic. so the main 3 or Hype, Depressed, and Anxious. Panic is only when stunned.

Red's design is finally finished (his hair is blue on purpose, it's a joke!). Out of all of the compulsory party members, he spends the most time with you. Just like the character he's based on, he presents himself as a simple person who only wants to help others, but there's obviously more to him than meets the eye.
