Hi there, everyone. I'm a bit nervous to post here for the first time but I want to introduce myself and give a brief little summary of what I'm working on.

My name is Ian, I'm 26 and I'm a digital artist and videogame lover who finally decided to branch out and work on my dream of making a game myself. I've loved pc games ever since I was a kid, specifically point and clicks and rpgs. I also love horror and mystery, both of which I plan on including in my game.

Speaking of my game, it's kinda untitled for now but I'm calling it fruitiversity. It's quite literally just an amalgamation of things I stated above. A mystery-horror-point and click-rpg centered around fruit people. I know, I know, but I really think I've got a good idea here. (I've got some screenshots I'm eager to share but I'm not exactly sure where to post yet)

I'm at the stage where I'm drawing maps and items for the engine, so this is definitely more than an idea but I've got a long way to go. I'm still learning the specifics of rpgmaker and coding and It feels like an uphill battle but I'm determined to keep trying.

Anyway, I'd love to hear what you all are working on as well! I don't really know anyone else who's developing a game. I'd love to find a place here among everyone and meet other people who are working on similar things, maybe even make some friends.

Hi, Ian, and welcome to the forums! You're in good company as there are plenty of mystery and horror fans here. I'm curious what you come up with down the road, especially since you are drawing your own graphics.

As for coding, you don't even have to worry about that if you don't want. It's not required for RPG Maker. At least not for the end user. Plus, there are a ton of plugins available.

If you're having trouble dipping into the engine itself, there are several tutorials on YouTube. SRDude, Driftwood Gaming, and Echo607 have good stuff.

One more thing...you now have us so don't be a stranger. :)

EDIT: I forgot to say what I'm working on but it's a game for a friend. I'm not sure anyone will be interested once published, since it's just a bunch of inside humor, but I'm having a lot of fun with it!

Thank you so much for all of the kind words and advice! Thank you for the resources, too. I love that you 're making a game that you're having fun with! That's the most important part.
I definitely won't be a stranger, especially with such nice people here!
Hopefully I can make something that people enjoy. Either way, thank you for the warm welcome!

Welcome and have fun... And since most of us here are a bit fruity or plain basket cases I think your game will fit right in xD

Nightmare... Dreamt I posted a GFX resource post. With a work in progress glove icon that tinted to different colors. In the wrong forum. And I was in such a panic. I saw people writing posts in response, those "..." you see in discord and such. So I frantically tried to report my post as wrong forum, editing to say it's the wrong forum and that I "accidentally" posted it too early... Very odd dream to be honest...

I'll prolly won't be on here for a while as we deal with this.
So before I inevitably start a new project to reorganize myself (I will make sure to save important info dw), I will make an external list of what I want in the final database.
