Hello all. New user.. total n00b when it comes to game dev but very intrigued in getting something started. Been using computers for over 30 years, played more then my fair share of games and used to play such things as D&D and other pen\paper RPGs. I have a great idea for a game and I hope RPGMaker can help me eventually realize it. Very tech savvy (Sr Sys Engineer) so I know tech, have access to any hardware I need.. just need to start somewhere with the right engine. I'm looking to do something 2D like Wasteland 2 style graphically with the following things: - character creation with stats, different classes and abilities - inventory system - combat - skills that improve with XP - more sandbox then linear - ability to have text only RPG component tied in with the 2d world. Like 2d and then you find a book and open it to a text adventure, etc. Anyhow.. on to doing tutorials and watching videos until I can figure out if this is the right engine for me.
