    Hi everyone,

    Nice to meet you all!

    So I wanted to make an RPG. For like... forever. Since I played Dragon Warrior on my NES when it came out. Yes, forever. And I found myself here.

    Backstory: I've been a game developer since 1994, back when I got to work on SNES and Genesis games. It's been a long road since then. I transitioned from 2D to 3D when the Playstation came out, worked up through other consoles, then on to PC. I started out as an artist, then I made my way into also doing music and sound effects, and eventually (18 years ago) started programming. After all this time, I now find myself really, really missing the fun of working on 2D games, the kind of games I truly love, which is what brings me here.

    When deciding to finally work on RPGs, I looked at a ton of different engines. I've been using Unity since 2009, releasing several games with it, and to many people that would make Unity the logical choice moving forward. It wasn't for me, though. I wanted something new and fun and different, and after looking at RPG Maker it just kind of spoke to me, and I knew it could be the one.

    So, having completed a few tutorials in RPG Maker MV, I'm smitten. This is awesome! Exactly what I've been looking for.

    After spending some time reading threads and getting a feel for the community, I'm really happy to be here, so thanks for making this such a welcome place. :)

    Welcome....I was in the same spot as you a little while ago. 20+ year indie developer and programmer who stumbled onto RPG Maker and loved it instantly. I have 3 games out now using the tool, and still enjoy it. Have fun exploring!
