ironically not as dumb of a question as you might think, since it is possible, though making a good one maybe requires plugins

I almost recreated Pac-Man with it, just without the display and fruits.

@bgillisp the Pac-Man game was actually my first experiment with different types of games, funny enough. It was honestly pretty fun to make. I'm actually kind of tempted to remake it.

It's not dumb, I did it myself for the lul. But I still find it funny. If you're going to do that out of curiosity if it can, then go ahead. But if you really do want to make sidescroller or so, why RM was the first thing the engine you're questioning that instead of try to jump to other engine?

If that's the only reason why you're using the engine, then it's pretty weird. There are plenty of better engines to use. I guess those kinds of people think that because it's a simple engine, everything on there is easy.

I've tried using GameMaker for making a platform game, but I could never figure out the menus - which RPG maker has.

I can second that there are far better systems to do x or y non-RPG game genre.

But I dunno, I get a sort of satisfaction from twisting the engine to my bidding. Maybe I'm just too comfortable with the interface. Or I just want to be a rebel brat and subvert the dominant paradigm and all that.

It's just fun pushing the limits sometimes.

I'm going to schedule my shuttle to the train station today... after I vote. It's not a pleasant thing to do, since I hate politics. So much negative talk. I can see why it's not allowed here. But about the shuttle. My county has a service called PalmTran, and it's really convenient. They pick you up at your home and drop you off where you need to be. Just give them a date and time.

I love October. It starts out with a lighthearted chillvibes. Near the end of the month, it becomes somewhat dreamy and the days feel slower. Maybe because October is the beginning of rainy season in my country. :D
