Hello! I used to be kinda active in this community, made a few super obsolete-by-now tutorials for RPG Maker, then disappeared. Now I'm a vtuber and go by LoriVT on Twitch! I've got the "itch" again to make something with RPG Maker, but I'd love to do it together with my chat! I wanted to ask the community: have you ever made a game with a community (for example, maybe Drifty has done this before?) How was it set up? Did you use Twitch extensions?

I'm thinking we could make the game through a combination of polls, extensions for clicking on the screen (it shows a hotspot of where people click, and gives results similar to a poll), and this extension for creating stories together.

Do you guys have other ideas on making it work?

Thanks!!

(Shameless plug: I stream Mondays and Thursdays, 7:30pm EST! I think this Thursday the 29th is when I'll start making the game with everyone if you want to come)

HawkZombie Did that actually a couple years ago and made a game called Sorbetta, gravely in Debt. You can find it on Steam if you wish to see the results of that.

Although interesting, a lot of parts of the game making process are long, tedious, and generally boring. Making the battle, the story and the characters, and even maps, might be fun, but doing the database for instance can be much less exciting. Perhaps working on the boring non-game changing stuff can be done outside of streams?

Also, I do remember you and your tutorial videos. They are what got me started with parallax mapping :p

Thank you!! I'm gonna look that up. I wonder if there are youtube clips from the time he was making that.

Edit: There are!! It looks like he just made the game over stream. I assume chat helped him out along the way, though!

I agree, it can get boring! But as a streamer, you make it interesting. A big part of vtubing is "just chatting" but also being professional enough to gauge what is good content, and what isn't. Chat interactivity = good content. So when that dwindles, I'll have to do some stuff behind-the-scenes. Not a problem though!!

And yaay I'm so glad you remember me! That's so cool!! :D I'm glad you got into parallax mapping!

Best to do the database off screen except character creation you can really involve the community with this. maby even powers ! but items i would have them ready to go... and explain youve done so in the background etc.. some people make questions in a previous video of what idea's your viewers may have.. and then in the next stream you call em out and implement it with the current viewers adding to it etc.

@fallenlorelei Omg, you're back! I'd follow anything u got going, so go for it lol. I think parts of the game dev process can be live-streamed, but as others have mentioned there are aspects of RPG Maker that's probably too tedious/boring for a live audience.

Are we now stuck with WYSIWYG ? I cannot revert back my posts to good old raw text ?
I'm wondering if I may be putting too many things into one map. A story, within a story, within a story . . . it's fun, but I can't shake the feeling that it may be better to scrap some of it, and use it for another map. I'm not sure what to do.

And the beginning of a nearly complete grid system dawns.

I want to add a thin pixel border around the entire region. Like across all blue highlights that connect and red attack highlights that connect.
