    Just choose something simple, like 'Harold goes for a walk' or make a small game based on a fairy tale. An amazing story isn't important, what you want is to get practice finishing a project.

    remember, a complete story needs a beginning, a middle and an end.

    Open VX Ace or whatever RM you have and read the default character's backstories, then make a small game centered around your favorite

    It doesn't need to be complicated. Most of the greatest story start from something simple. You could try out a Game Jam on Itch. Just a jam that interests you and go from there.

    This happens to me so often. And once I finally have a story idea it explodes into something waay too big and ambitious. XD
    @hiddenone gosh darn it stop figuring out the names of my short games before I even release them. Been working on "Marsha Goes for a Walk" for a while now. DX

    For projects like that, I like to think back to childhood. Goals that I had when I was a kid (silly little ones, not ones that would take a lifetime to achieve), or misconceptions that I had about things, are great sparks for coming up with a plot for this type of game.

    Dude goes on a walk to get some milk, falls in a mysterious cave he's never seen before. He now must find his way out but try as he might he only ends up further in it's depths. Is the cave real or did it transport him to an alternate dimension?

    Bing. Story popped out of my head in 3.2 seconds and continued as I typed.

    This is why after my current project is done, my next one would only have a basic story...
