Hey there I am starting a series on YouTube where I play and review indie games. I'm starting off with RPG Maker games I find on this forum! The first video is up now with another video going up later today. If you guys have any games you wish for me to review drop them in the comments here!

I would prefer games that have little to no reviews because I think its important to give new/undiscovered dev's the motivation to continue with their project by give them a review, tips, ideas, and fixes.

I’d like one of my games reviewed. Just a friendly rpg maker dev. My games have just a little bit more exposure than a new dev but I thought to reach out and see the possibilities:). Any game from https://www.thenerdmansion.com/ will work. All games by me are free right now :).

Hello! If you could review my game, Chrysalis, that would be lovely. Freshly released but it's not super popular right now, so I'm looking for any kind of exposure. https://hexmozart88.itch.io/chrysalis

You might want to try and spice up your page a little, or at least the icon.

Something more like that one, it really pops out. My eyes immediately went to the neon green xD

And when they click in on it, its just a white screen with some text. It feels very low effort and even if your game is great. You first need to get people to click download y'know :p

I understand what you're saying but the game has no graphics. If I put a bunch of graphical stuff on the page, that's kind of deceptive, you know?

Edit: I just made the background black with white text.

I see the problem....Morals. That will get in the way of success xD

It would be interesting to see someone stream it tbh.

It's cool that you're reviewing people's games, but shouldn't you change the title? Right now it sounds like it's only about that one game. Just a thought. Maybe more people would find their way here.

Sometimes I wonder if I feature creep... 225 magic spells is a lot lol.
Being hit with nostalgia for something that's gone is both a great thing and so sad.

But being a creative means having ideas for bringing stuff back to life, which can be frustrating and rewarding in it's own right.
the urge to comment helpful things on forum posts but not using the same engine
It's my Party and I'll cry if I want to. The best b-day present I could have is if my mapper came back. No idea where he went.

Updated Senary's design (left). The previous one is overdesigned and her lack of functional pants is distracting and undermines her as a strong female character. She now has compression shorts, shorter hair, and a loose-fitting shirt for a modern look. She was lacking the authority of her original design, so I gave her military cap with her namesake.
