    I actually think it is relevant though. Remember how RPGMaker is marketed everyone. The ads and slogan say simple enough for a child. RPGMaker is marketed to a young audience, and it is marketed as you can make a game with no programming knowledge needed. So I've always felt that those who say "Well, I know how you can program this, so I should judge by that" need to stop as you are going against how the engine is marketed and sold and it honestly sends a contrary message to the audience this engine is advertised to and how Degica wants to sell it.

    @bgillisp, sorry, I'm not understanding what you mean. Or maybe your comment isn't directed toward me? Haha! If it is, I agree that there's a wide variety of users. Some can make a perfectly fun and enjoyable game with no programming ability. The engine also allows those who can do some JS tweaking to do almost as much as they want. I judge games based on how well what's there works, not on how much they changed. So, if someone makes a great game with Vanilla assets and no plugins, fine. If they've added custom everything, cool. Let's play the game and see how good it is. :)

    @Julien Brightside, sure. As long as you're ready for a review to be written. Some people prefer to wait because they still want to add features to the game and don't want to have a review written until the game is nearly complete and available for players to purchase or download. I also do private reviews/game testing if you want a second set of eyes on your game but don't want a public review yet. Check the website Services page if that interests you. Otherwise, you can send me a link to your game, and I'll add it to my queue.

    @Randor : Nah, just directed at the general I know how to do it so you should too I've seen on the forums a lot recently. What you said in your reply makes more sense and I think that is a perfectly fine way to handle things.

    Do you have a planned schedule for reviews or is just a matter of when you have time?

    @VisitorsFromDreams, right now, I have one day per week set aside for working on blogs and reviews for my RPG Maker Games Reviews site. First-Impression reviews will go fairly quickly, so I should be able to publish a few at a time.

    I'd love a review on my game Burden. It's my first and is pretty story focused I'm working on my third game now which is also story focused so whatever feedback I can get I appreciated.
    You've got a cool service going on here, and this is the perfect place to share it

    @Randor I would appreciate a review no matter what. Maybe it will encourage more people to play the game.
