    Degica isn't the publisher, so I doubt it would be here.

    That's right. As it's not published by Degica, they could provide no support for it. You'd have to go to the publisher's site (NIV?)

    Aha, I was wondering if it Degica was involved or not. Well, I guess that's bad news for anyone interested since it'll probably limit the support the engine gets from the talented community on this site.
    I suspect there might not be that many plugins made for, unlike what we have for RPGmaker.

    We will have fan-forum for that if it's going to be popular though.

    Somewhere, not in this site. An independent unofficial forum like rmcentral or so.

    Ah, I though so. Well there'll be a forum somewhere for sure. But if it's not on this forum, I think less talented plugin makers that hang out here will end up making stuff for it.

    And just like RPGmaker MV, I'd say the quality of the plugins makes or breaks the engine. And just like VNmaker is lacking in that aspect, I suspect this engine will too. And VN maker is actually on this forum.

    is rmmv forum really that bad? TIL. rmvxa dot net (now known as rmcentral) wasn't that bad. Although it is quiet compared to this site.

    Well, I'm not saying they're BAD (I wouldn't know). But this here is THE RM-forum for sure, and I have a feeling that all of the plugin creators don't have memberships or bother much with other sites as much? And the same probably goes for people who makes other resources. This here really is the best place in my opinion.

    Maybe, yes. I started to active on forum at 2013 which one year after this site is running. But before that, we have pretty much RM forums like vx dot net, RRR, save-point dot org, and many more. And some people said vx dot net was nice forum for VX user, until VXA released, and this forum is founded.

    I'm saying even without official forum, the RM community was still staying strong and kept being creative. It just even nicer to have everything centralized though.

    And maybe that will do the same to PGMMV community, as long as people are endorsing it much.

    I believe this Pixel Maker MV engine needs a lot more support and exposure to stand a chance in the market though. Because unlike RPG maker, which has it's niche corner of the game engine market locked down, PGmaker is advertised as (just another) 2D game engine.

    It might succeed in converting a few RM fans (including resource creators), but I doubt it will be many and there would probably have been more if the engine was put under Degica's spotlight. I think this engine will really struggle just like (I think) IG maker did.

    Yeah to be fair RM already quite old that it has its own fame already. Maybe that's also why.

    As long as PGM has convenient UI and feature, I believe it will sell well though. I tried IG Maker, and my opinion, it wasn't worth the hassle. No wonder why no ppl use it.

    Also granted, idk how are PGM rivals like construct, GM, and 2D kits in Unity (that also claimed no need scripting to make 2D platformer) works. But still, in the end which one that able to make the tool quite convenient, it's the one that will win.

    True. I’d say that Game Maker has the upper hand for now when it comes to 2D engines where there is ”no programming needed”. Hard to say if Pixel Game Maker can trumf the GM brand which have been in the market for years. We’ll have to wait and see, but I’m doubtful.

    I guess they will pass alpha first before getting messages. Hopefully :3
