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.
@Randor, could you do me a favor? Please introduce yourself as who you really are like others Let player's curators. It would help me understand your personalities better. For example like your general stuffs likes your education and your technical skills. Thank you. (I did not see in your website neither).
@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
