Hi all you lovely people,

After a long hiatus I've returned to game making, and the forums.
This will be my third project and I wanted to test the RPG Maker MV engine to see how far I can push it. The image sizing is great and I want to make everything hand-drawn instead of pixel-style this time around.


What games have you seen that use the RPG Maker program but use good looking hand-drawn maps instead of pixel-style? I would love to find more examples of ways people have pushed that boundary and I love seeing unique graphics in games.

to be told for me
mv map already look less pixel
and if you want to draw it go ahead
there are less custom tile and hand draw is lesser

it’s not the question how other done
more important is how you done
if you good at hand draw style just show it

but make every thing custom is heavy load work
so I just give up to do my owns custom tile or parallax…

I can think of 3 examples right now. Those would be "Black Crystals", "Everbloom" and "Dream of sword". The last two were made for the IGMC 2018.
I've also seen one game with completely traditional watercolor maps, but I don't remember the name.

I'm actually trying to practice my own art so that one day I can make handdrawn maps, too.

It always depends of the skills of whatever is attempted for me to like pixels or handdrawns.

i have been thinking something similar, though what i am doing is im doing all my characters by hand, lol they have ended up looking better (in my opinion) then the generic character sprites, so if you have the hand for it or the money to pay someone to draw the maps for you, its very doable, given you would have ALLOT of work ahead of you, took me about a week to do enough templates to make a single character, but once you get the hang of it you start to get things done more quickly, given though if you already know how to size everything it would be more quick, ~,~ not to mention if your doing 100% parallaxing it would be rather simple and quick i think,

given that though i have not seen any games so far that have had 100% hand drawn sprites,

Jumping and gravitation 0.1 build - RPG Maker MV
It's ironic, but one of the many hilarious things done with Shia's Just Do It speech was to make a hype song, and....I know what it is.....but I still get inspired by it! I'm like..."Yes I can!!"
That moment when you realize you lost time frankenstiening a sprite together, only to realize it already exited.
My first game is going to have the main character more or less create monsters as his party members.

Thanks to the plugin creators still producing content for MV, I might be able to give each of the monster members a personalized range of tactics during combat. I liked how the devs made it like that in FF6.
Stream will be live shortly! Tonight will be the PREMIERE of Killer 7 for the first half of the stream, and at half-stream, we will switch to a session of the Interactive Text Adventure! Feel free to drop by!
