    Puzzles and how you test them!

    Hi guys! I'm creating a puzzle heavy battle-free game because that's something I've personally always liked. But my spouse brought up an interesting point that has me thinking! Puzzle games aren't for everyone, and sometimes button mashers or even battle-based levelling games can be simple...

    RMMV I'll Give You A Gift [In-Progress Prototype]

    Introduction This is the first RPG Maker game I'm committing to actually trying to complete. I'm currently making the prototype in RPG Maker MV but I might switch it over to ACE depending on if certain mechanics are more readily available for ACE rather than MV. The Premise Set in a fantasy...

    Before buying RMMV, I have a question regarding some in-game content.

    Hello, there. This is my first time posting here. I've been following RPG Maker MV for a while and I plan on buying it later this year. Before going further, I have to tell my backstory, as it relates to the question I have. Around the ending of 2014 to beginning of 2015, just a few months...

    Found a site for original resources.

    It costs money but I've been dipping my feet in the waters of a site called Fiverr. I hired a concept artist to make up for my inability to draw...anything. I'm waiting for the art to come back and I 'm excited to see how it turns out. It's not super spendy though. $5-15 bucks typically. I'm...

    Writing Tools for Game Design and Development?

    Can anyone recommend some good (and maybe free and open source) tools for writing video game scenes and dialogue? I've been looking for some tools to help write the story of my game.

    Creating An Integrated Developer

    Often times, a lot of engines come integrated with their programming language to accomplish specific goals for a game. And with that, they usually create a scripting API to accomplish those tasks. In a sense, we have a scripting API and can create our own API on top of the default engine code...

  13. How to go About Working on a Team

    This is a topic that has been in my mind for a while but I wasn't able to figure out a way to express it before. I want to eventually work with a team to make games. I figure the best way to go about this would be to make some games on my own and build up a portfolio to showcase the types of...
  14. A Question About Development

    This is a question that I've had about game development for a while. Which should come first: the story or the mechanics? With the ideas that I've had lately I've had a hard time coming up with a story to match game mechanics and vice versa. I was just wondering if there is a valid reason to...

    Books for Game Development

    I haven't really seen a topic like this so I thought it was worth bringing up especially with so many people coming to this site to start their journey into game development thanks to RPG Maker! I've noticed in browsing Amazon as well as looking in book stores you see a lot of books that can...
