I've always been aware of it after coming across XP back in the day. I attempted to make an entire game in the timespan of the free trial and it was... well, I'm glad it never saw the light of day but I still wish I still had it.

I've stuck with the software ever since then and went with VX Ace as my engine of choice.

Some Tumblr post made a passing reference to RPG Maker existing and I immediately went and looked it up and bought VX Ace ( the current engine at the time ) because I wanted to make my own Shining Force. Never did make a tactics game, but have had plenty of fun messing around with the engines since.

Hmm, I've always been aware of RPG Maker. I only just started using it last month though because when I was thinking about my game, I was trying to find the perfect engine that would be able to deliver on the game that I imagined perfectly. So far, RPG Maker is the best candidate for that. It also helps that I have little game dev experience, so it's a good place to start haha.

I think I was first exposed to my first RPG Maker game back in the early 2010's called "Mad Father", though I hadn't actually found out about the actual RPG Makers themselves until somewhere between 2013 - 2014 when my sister bought RMVXA for £20 on Steam, which I frequently messed around with. I loved the idea of being able to create my own game, but at the time I didn't have the knowledge (or patience) to make things work or make my own assets.
Now I have my own copy of RMVXA that I plan to make something with! I don't have much right now, but I'm not going to give up quite so easily this time!

Found out about it around the time of XP on my parent's computer when I was still a kid. I had a rubbish shareware version of RPG Maker XP and had no idea what I was doing. Shortly afterwards I found rpg maker 2003 and set out to make the next final fantasy. It was terrible obviously haha. Had a soft spot for the engine ever since though.

I didn't have a computer until I was like 16. I got rpg maker for the psx when I was around..14? Spent soooo much time on that, and it solidified my desire to make games. I ended up going to a game dev college, but ended up becoming an author as a career, who would have guessed lol. Been dabbling again in rpg maker since 2015, and recently started a new project back in July that I'm very serious about.

It was the late 90s. I think I just heard it mentioned somewhere and looked it up. Official English language releases were not available. I played around with it. Once a commercial English version was available, I purchased it, and I've upgraded a few times.

I forgot when, but a friend of mine from high school introduced me to RPG Maker 2003. I've been hooked ever since. :)

After I got to playing Final Fantasy VII and IX, and was playing a decent amount of RPGs thanks to the PS2 and PS1 (and some GBA), I saw RPG Maker 3 in a store so I decided to pick it up.

I never finished the game I was making with it because I ran out of memory, but it did inspire me once I got a laptop capable of handling it and the know-how to use them, the PC versions of RPG Maker, starting with VX Ace.

I found out about it 2 months ago. I'd played an mlp game called cursed gem which was an rpg and I got curious about the engine it was made with and found out about rpg maker mv. I installed it and started messing with it and then some game ideas came to me

I searched 'how to make a game without coding' and RPG maker was one of the few that popped up.

PS1 RPG Maker! The fact that you can make a working RPG on a console, without coding just blew my little teenage mind. I always thought game making was a giant corporate business, not something you can do it alone.

On unrelated note, I am having same kind of amazement with Dreams on PS4.

I think Kipling said it best.

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
⁠And never breathe a word about your loss,
(...)
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
⁠And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!
