Hey,

So I've been messing around with different iterations of the RPG Maker engine since XP was new, maybe even earlier. I've never finished anything that I've deemed worth releasing to a general audience and I haven't interacted much with 'the scene' except for lurking and hoarding resources. In general, I'm a bit of a mad scientist of a game dev. I also develop TTRPGs, LARPs, ARGs, and my favorite thing is to play around in all kinds of weird, experimental, hybridized game design spaces in between those models and videogames. I went through a phase where I was kind of obsessed with horror games in RM, but in the end the same thing that drew me towards that--the general unsuitability of the tool to the genre--also forced me to give up on it.
In general I really like weird, experimental stuff in all forms of media. It's probably pretty fair to call me pretentious. I am slightly in awe of those of you who have actually finished entire RM games that you deemed worth playing and released them.

Also, I really like capybaras, as you can tell. If I'm reading the website right, this post won't appear until the moderators approve it.

It requires alot of determination. I myself have finished 2 game and another that is done but needs playtesters. You could could with something small, a game jam can definitely help keep scope creep in check.

We have finished 2 games but not released them. They were used for learning purposes. Currently, we have one that we are putting a lot of our effort into since it will be our first commercial game (Storybook Hero).

It can be a daunting task for sure however if you are determined and willing to put in the effort, it can be very rewarding... even from a hobby standpoint.

C&C Remastered comes out tomorrow! Hyped! Already have it preinstalled on Steam.
Its ironic, how often a person can have something smart to say, when their arrogance is originating from an internal vacuum where emotional intelligence belongs.
Parallax mapping is time consuming...
Let's purchase th... WAIT! Just in time ehehehe.
Excited with the idea of a new maker, but I imagine I'll probably be disappointed.
