    How much advertising is too much?

    I'm starting to get tempted advertising my (mostly) non-commercial game that I posted in "Early Project Feedback" more (due to the lack of interest), but at the same time I don't want to be too "pushy" about something people might not like in the first place. So, my question for you is...should...

    What things make an RPG Maker game stand out to you?

    I'll have to admit that for a game to stand out for me, it should have one of the following: Attractive characters Interesting premise/synopsis Nice Screenshots Nice artwork

    What do you think of games with a spiritual figure/deity as the antagonist?

    It seems to be a common theme in Japanese RPGs to have a spiritual figure or deity as an antagonist. I dunno, I think there is some guilty pleasure in defeating a deity in a video game (maybe its the sense you defeated a powerful figure that people have worshipped.) I'm toying with putting the...

    What do you think about references to drugs in games?

    I admit that I made a little reference to illegal drugs in my current MV game (and in earlier games, too.) I had a character who was dealing "good stuff" (which is not named). In my upcoming sci-fi project, I'm thinking about making one of my playable alien characters be a druggie (a la "Paul")...

    What kinds of governments do you include in your games?

    I've kinda asked this question before, but in a different way more than a year ago. Since it was a popular question to answer, I've decided to bring it back (somewhat) and see if opinions have changed any. In my current MV project, the game starts out in a democratic Republic where some of...

    Kinda stupid question, but...

    What occupation is this character supposed to be? (Bottom, 2nd from left) I'm personally using this character as a president for one of my game's countries. I'm just wondering if he looks too out of place in that role.

    Do you think most RPG Maker games have a "standard" fantasy setting?

    By "standard" I mean settings inspired by traditional European culture (sort of like "Lord of the Rings", with stuff like kingdoms, knights, dragons, princes and princesses, castles, and all that related stuff.) I haven't played other RPG Maker games besides mine, but I've been reading the...

    Trying to make the background of a spritesheet transparent...

    Hello all, I've been trying to make the background color of these spritesheets transparent when I'm importing them into my game, but I can't seem to do so. The window to make the color transparent/translucent doesn't pop up when I try to import these two spritesheets. These are spritesheets...

    Others forms of government besides monarchies in RPGs

    It seems that most of the RPG maker games (as well as RPGs in general) take place in settings that are ruled by monarchs. We usually hear about the settings being a "kingdom" or "empire". My question is, do you have games where the form of government is different (such as a dictatorship...

    Looking for a "Spaceship" sprite....

    I'm looking for a futuristic-style spaceship character sprite to replace the regular airship character sprite. I tried looking but I couldn't really find any. This is for RPG Maker VX Ace.

    Does anyone have a list of "functions" for the custom formula?

    By "functions", I mean things that check if a state is applied to a battler, for example. I suppose I'll clarify what I'm trying to do as an example: I'm trying to make it so that if a certain state is applied to a certain type of actor/enemy (not anyone else), that battler's AGI parameter...

    Something that's puzzling me about vehicles...

    It says on the FAQs that random encounters don't happen when you're in a vehicle. However, I was able to get random encounters while on a boat in my game - something that I wanted anyway. However, I'm a bit concerned because if I was able to get random encounters on the boat, then I probably...

    Do you think RPG Maker Games are good for my resume?

    Hello all, I'm currently in the process of finding work, and at the same time, making RPGs with RPG Maker. I will not sell my games commercially (don't want to get involved with any copyright issues, among other things), but instead I was thinking about using the games I make as part of my...

Any commercial devs here ever mess with Gamejolt? Been contemplating making my games available there but don't know if it's worth the effort or not.
Social distancing taught me of how much of not a loner I am. Dammit, I miss seeing my friends...
Happy 4th of July all. Anybody have plans? Mine here is staying home away from the virus. Still a nice 3 day weekend.
The project I am working on is going great at the moment. I'm hoping everyone is having as successful a time as I am. :)
Waiting for RPG Maker VX Ace to also go ON SALE on this site, cause honestly, I don't want to buy it on Steam.
