Heyup there, folks. This here's essentially a boss fight guide archive request forum for RPG Maker Games that are RPGs. I'm here to promote your games (to some extent) and help you to widen the audience gap of RPG games that are actually RPG Maker. So, let's just say that this is a let's play of sort, but with a twist. Best part, as long as you'll let me, I'll draw thumbnail art for your game if you decide to let me play your game and you follow my ground rules (otherwise people will send me 100+ games that are essentially uninteresting to me. Pardon the bluntness.) I won't do this on a regular daily basis. Just playing the ones that I find interesting in my own time. So don't expect regular weekly videos. You think I'm joking? Well, I have made a couple of videos as examples, just in case. I guess you can see it for yourself if you want to get an idea on what I'm making. I will showcase the first boss guide of the game here. Everything else, you may refer to in the playlists that I've organized for each game. Spoiler: Archive: 2018 Spoiler: Archive: 2019 Now, let's get down to business. I will lay down some ground rules for you so that you guys can have me play your game while at the same time making you some fancy thumbnail artwork. And I will make this as clear as possible so you guys can understand. I don't want any of you to send me games and ended up hurting your feelings if I ended up somewhat disliking it to some extent. That's the last thing I wanted. It might happen, but I do at least want to mitigate it the best I can. --------------- Spoiler: Rules* - This is not a hard and fast rule 1. I will only play RPG oriented games. That means Action, Puzzle and Horror will only be assessed on a case to case basis. However, there will be a very low chance I will be doing these games. You have a good amount of people doing horror oriented games (and they're the popular ones too). So if you're sending me games that have horror elements or is just straight up horror, I'd likely refuse your request. You have been warned. And my apologies in advance. Turn based, ATB or custom is flexible on my end. I'd accept it as long as it's an RPG to some extent. (I'd also accept tactic type games as well too.) P.S: RPG Maker games only. 2003 and XP is not recommended as I might have issues recording with that. 2. I will likely not do full playthroughs. Only boss fights. So if your boss fights are uninteresting to me or if there aren't any, then it's an off deal. I won't continue playing (or play it in my off time) or making any boss fights of it. 3. I highly advise diverging from using RTP (using original assets, make some adjustments and use original characters other than the many RTP based sets of Harolds and Thereses (MV) or the based enemies of battlers found in the engine). However, if you do use RTP, you have to wow me in terms of story and gameplay and make sure you don't use copyrighted music or assets so I can actually draw it and/or record it without any legality issues. (Youtube is awful like that.) 4. If you send me your game, you are liable to get my honest opinion on it. However, I will try to make it as fair as possible. I don't necessarily like to be negative, trust me on this. Besides, I have been getting criticized as well. I understand how painful it is to get negative feedback and all that stuff. So if you feel like you're not ready. Don't send it. 5. In terms on whether or not I will make a guide. My standards are as follows. If you have a score of 8.0 or higher, there is a high chance (not guaranteed) I will make boss guides for your game. As for how the scoring follows, you may refer to this document here for more details on many of the scores I have accumulated over in the many RPG Maker games I've played/watched. Exceptions will be made on a case to case basis. 6. I won't give any feedback on mapping and story wise in detail. Simply because other let's players can do a better job criticizing and giving feedback to mapping and writing. (And to be fair, I am weak at mapping, so I don't exactly have the right to judge.) I prioritize battles more than anything. So if you want feedback on what I think of your game's experience overall like a normal let's play would, this isn't the guide for you. 7. I am liable to make any mistakes because my opinions aren't necessarily correct or valid. If you wish to make any justifications and corrections, feel free. I will try my best to accept what assessment or mistake I made and will attempt to change it as long as your reasoning is sound. 8. I will accept a maximum of 3 games at a time. Any more, and it'll have to be in a queue list. I will put a queue list somewhere here once I have more than 3 games to make guides for. (This may or may not change depending on the situation.)

If you wish to ask for more questions or request a game you wish for me to make a guide on. Either send me a PM or send a comment. I'll be happy to accept your game/answer your questions as long as I have the time. But keep in mind that I will at least play it and assess it myself before making any final conclusions on whether I will make a boss guide for it. I will PM you the results if you choose to send me your game.
