    It's the most wonderful time of the year, and our immensely talented staff and contributors want to share it with you! Join us as we celebrate the amazing year we've had and as we look forward to more creativity, fun and joy in the upcoming year.

    Our 12 hours of Christmas starts right now! Every hour, we will be unveiling a new resource as well as giving away free copies of RPG Maker and our resource packs (DLC).

    Get into the holiday spirit, and get your wishlists ready!

    Gift #1:

    The first gift is here to set the mood! Matt (mjomusic) has composed a cheerful winter holiday music theme that's bound to get your toes tapping, fingers swinging and entire body breaking into that awkward embarrassing dance that we'll pretend we didn't see.

    Matt is one of our talented Member+ contributor musicians. His style is whimsical, melodic and always fun to hear. You can listen to more of his music here.
    Gift #2:

    The second gift was created by the very talented Celianna. You may know her as the artist who created the Futuristic Tileset, or as the artist who created these fantastic tiles.

     Age 10, got a Playstation 2 for christmas. Sweet lord, all the hours I put into that thing!

    As for what i'd like,  The Nothing Battles music pack for sure, another copy of RPG Maker VX Ace to give to a friend, and the High Fantasy resource pack.

     I would like to give a grand thank you to all of the admins, the Gmods, the regular moderators, and, of course, Touchfuzzy, the grand lead eagle. Who always deserves a mention. Of course, thanks to all the people who put so much hard work to keep the restaffs going strong!

    Oh, yes, and merry christmas, happy holidays, be full of cheer :3

    1)  Spending a magical 10 days in the Cairngorm mountains in Scotland - freezing cold, but with bright winter sun and absolutely clear night skies so that the stars danced and shimmered overhead so close it looked like you could reach them.  Then on the last day a massive amount of snow which cut off the small access road leading down from where we were and so for 3 more days (sigh) we were forced to stay and enjoy ourselves!

    2) I've actually got a lot of the resource packs etc., but of those I still lack: Tyler Warren's Battlers, Celianna's Farm tile set (when it comes out), Modern Day tile set.

    3) This is a genuine, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to all those who contribute so that we can have first class resources for our games.  I am constantly amazed at the talent and generosity on show month after month.

    Oh wow, nice event. Ok, let's see...


    1) This is pretty hard, as Christmas every year generally isn't all fun and cheer. There's always at least one depressing/anxiety-inducing thing every year for the family, but one good Christmas (going to exclude this one as the holidays have only just started) I can remember was when I was somewhere around the age of 8. We went to the garden centre to get a Christmas Tree, then to the hardware/homeware shop to get decorations for it. I was walking around with my mum, when we reached the decorations (dad was off elsewhere) and I saw a rather impressive-looking blue star. It was a T-shaped blue star, with a plastic gold border around it, and the whole thing was a bit larger than the size of my hand. My mum bought it and some bear-themed stockings on a string, and when she got home, put the blue star in the 12th - last - stocking. On the day of Christmas, the said blue star went on the tree, but the day after, I kept it with me for the remainder of the holiday.


    Heck, I loved that blue star :p I still have it in the Christmas Decorations box XD


    EDIT: Turns out it wasn't a T-shaped star! This is the closest example I can find, except mine was much smaller (well, it fit on the tree :p ) and had a plastic gold border: http://i00.i.aliimg.com/img/pb/461/334/681/681334461_444.jpg


    2) Wishlist:


    RMDS Resource Pack


    Futuristic Tileset


    Modern Day Tileset


    3) Thanks to everyone for such a great community that also provides awesome events and prizes ^_^

    My favorite winter holiday memory... I'm from Texas so I didn't really have any "winter" memories, but my fondest non-winter memory is that my Mom would make (as in sew) christmas pj's for the whole family each year.

    What would I like to win? The Tyler Warren RPG Battlers, Zombie Survival Pack, and...... Don't know I have pretty much everything else.  Though I *am* waiting eagerly for the Farm Tiles to be finished.

    And a thank you to the staff and contributing members for the restaff resources and the plus resources, there is some great stuff coming out of both of these groups.

    1) A memory that I keep being reminded of by my family was when I was young and we went on our first ,and last holiday, to Canada  and we went and ran around in the snow, which under normal circumstances would be okay, however I decided to go in my..shall we call it my "Christmas Suit..." I have never lived that down and get reminded of it every year :D

    2) High Fantasy Main Party Pack II

    RPG Maker DS+ Resource Pack

    Manga Maker? (if that's included :x) if not than the DS resource pack :D

    3) This year the resources have been getting bigger and better! I'm glad to have been part of at least one of the releases and to give my work alongside some other beautiful work. I must say thankyou to everyone who gave their time to create so many free high quality resources. in particular I must say thank you for the Hospital Tilesets released in one of the ReStaff! as it was something I was looking for for a while :D

    Some amazing resources made this year, and a merry Christmas to all :D

    Middle school, I discovered snow for the first time in my life.

    Seeing the snowflakes falls was like magic for me.

    Those products aren't out yet but I look forward to have them :

    - Roman tileset by Lunarea

    - Farm Tileset by Celiana

    - Charasets packs by Acheida (don't remember if she decided to sell it or not)

    For everybody who always give time to make free resources and help people.

    Thank you very much because without you Rpg maker won't be here now.

    It's because of your passion that RM lived in the past and continue to live.

    Without you, I wouldn't be able to make my game.

    So I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    My favorite memory: Hitting my brother with a snowball and in response he begins to make a snowball to throw at me but then realizes the snow he's using was yellow (we owned a little dog) and freaks out haha :D Good times.

    3 products I would really really REALLY like to win:  1 - RPG MAKER DS RESOURCE PACK. 2 - RPG MAKER DS+ RESOURCE PACK. 3 - THE ADVENTURER'S JOURNEY.

    Thank you all so much. To the Staff for your time you give so freely to all us aspiring game makers who's help and guidance has helped me personally to grow as a spriter and a game maker which allows me to vent my creativity. To all the contributors who generosity astounds me, and to all members, contributors and staff, a very large THANK YOU for making me feel so welcome this past year. 

    Regards KingDanner

    1. Having to work 99% of the holidays and just had the flu. Would take a free reserve on a copy of the Luna Engine or the RFT when it is released.

    Other than that I am doing ok. 

    2. No One dies from dumb or drunk driving during the holidays.

    The Arabian Pack might be a nice addition. Don't think I have it yet.

    3. Everyone be a little nicer, and give more to others during the upcoming year.

    Don't eat Reindeer Burgers at the North Pole!

    Happy and Safe Holidays everyone.

    1) Every Christmas is special to me, but it has to be the first time I spent Christmas with my mum's side of the family. My parents are split, so I have to decide between my dad and my mum, though I usually go with my dad. I had a wonderful time with my younger cousins, playing games and the like, and I've never regretted making that decision. My aunt's cooking was amazing, too :p It was a delicious turkey and the various other things we could add to the plate were nice, too.

    2) Ooh, this is fun. I've always wanted the RPG Maker DS+ Pack (or the normal DS one would be fine, too), the Arabian Nights tiles (they look absolutely gorgeous) and the Samurai materials.

    3) Where do I even start? Thank you so much to all the admins and staff and resource makers for just being absolutely awesome. Seriously. Where would we be without you all? Not here, that's for sure. So thank you for everything you've done; you're amazing.

    1) My favourite winter holiday memory...

    It was just 3 years ago, when we spent Christmas in family and with my grandfather (who passed away at February of the last year), that was sadly the last Christmas with him, but we had a great time together and I'm very happy that he also enjoyed that day.

    2) DS Resource Pack, DS+ Resource Pack, Modern Day Tiles Resource Pack, professional and awesome stuff.

    3) Thank you very much for your hard work, for your awesome resources and for bringing friendship and happiness to this place!

    I love this site and these kind of events, they're funny and entertaining.

    Even though we are of different nationalities, we all have one thing in common (besides our life XD), and that thing is the passion for Rpgs and for this fantastic tool that Enterbrain has created for us.

     Happy Holydays! Thank you very much! And may God bless you all guys! Long live RM!

    I'm touched now... ;_;

    1) Back in the past my parents traveled and I gave a big and unforgettable party.

     

    2) Well only lack a few music packs to fullfil all the resources: Sinister Hollows, Gyrowolf's Music Resource Pack 001, Inspirational Vol. 1.

     

    3) A huge thank to all RPG Maker Community for the hard work and dedication, even in resources as support, inspirations and so on. Thanks to all of you I had opportunities to get closer of my dream to be a developer (and even help me out paying some bills already!)

     

    A Happy Holiday guys! \o/

    The Samurai resource pack - for those awsome battlers

    Zombie Graphics pack - for a nice touch of modren war zones

    1) My favorite holiday memory is when my brother, Wes, finally was old enough to really get excited for Christmas. He was still little enough that he was still calling me "Sissy" instead of "Sister" as he does now. He woke me up, at the buttcrack of dawn, to inform me that Santa had come and I had to get up now. He thought that together, we could get mom and dad up to open presents at 6 in the morning. It had to be a team effort though. :)

    2) The three products that I would like best are:

         - Modern Day Tiles

         - Zombie Graphics Pack

         - Arabian Nights Tiles

    3) Thank you to the wonderful staff that spends their valuable time during the year, running events, patrolling the forums, and making sure we don't descend into a sea of chaos.

    1. I definitely think one of my favorite memories (although not so pleasant at the time) was a miniature 3-day holiday we had at an airport. We were on our way to England for the holidays (well, a week), and it decided to snow. Where we live, everything shuts down after 5 inches of the white stuff. We stayed at the airport the first night, sleeping on cardboard handed out to us by officials, and got hot free food from Tim Hortons. :) The next night we were able to find a friend who lived nearby to stay at their house for that night. Glorious muffins were made and consumed. We managed to get a plane the next day thankfully. Although it doesn't sound like it'd be all that nice, it was overall fun and a very memorable experience. :p

    I definitely want to thank the staff, for making cool events like this happen, making sure all the hinges are well-oiled, and turning the metaphorical cranks! I know this site would be pretty chaotic if it weren't for our awesome staff making sure we keep our heads above the water. And wow! These contributors are amazing! They've honed their skills, and still manage to grace us with all these amazing resources to use, the same goes for many of these Member+ contributors and event runners (and etc.) Rock on, RPG Maker Web! Have a happy new year!
