just got mv and began making this idea like 3 days ago this is what ive got in-game so far
1618343019371.png
so far its got clickable events, diagonal collision, blinking hud face, functional hud, functional event alert, and a custom made 8px font
the actual size of the game is 160x144 (gameboy style!) this is just fullscreened
ive seen other forums discussing tamagotchi-like games or "pet games" in rpgmaker and how they'd be very difficult and require a TON of switches & variables and considering i am the WORST when it comes to switches & variables is this a hopeless venture into uncharted waters?

and of course just to make things more complicated i also wanted to do something more interesting with it rather than just another pet game as well... not exactly sure how yet but i liked the idea of it being more emotionally grounded than "oh it died bc u didnt take care of it o well time to get a new one" sort of thing

what do you guys think? :0/
does it even sound interesting enough to be worth the trouble?

I'm not sure if RPG Maker is the best engine to build a Tamagotchi because I think you'll have much more work doing this on RM than another engine with a Tamagotchi pack or even following a tutorial.

About a deep emotional Tamagotchi, you may want to have a look at My Child Lebensborn for reference, which is essentially the idea you're describing.

interesting! it seems sad though... if i do make it i don't want it to be sad or like a psychological horror type of game just something that realistically displays emotions... i'm not that invested in the idea considering i just started making it so i might just scrap it if i can't make it in rpgm...

A side story is almost getting into the next stage. Almost everything in this game has real-life references.

Everyday life is full of absurdity. This is just a reflection.
TFW you discover how the script batching works in VNMaker... after you've had the program for almost 3 years.

Writes that the characters have to climb a mountain.

Realized that I have to draw six sets of models where characters are climbing.

At least I know how to draw something. :)
I'm currently scratching my head on how to design plains. What do I even put in plains? Some trees (but not too many or it turns into a forest)? Grass? A few bushes? That's a bit dull.
I'm looking for tutorials but Google didn't seem to find much (or maybe I have the wrong keywords). I don't know how to map plains and I don't know how to learn.
