I just completed my first ever game for the RPG Maker Contest yesterday. It was a ton of fun, a little stressful at the end, but overall a great experience. It must have been, because somehow logged over 300 hours while working on this (I was a bit over-zealous in the graphics department; I had a bit too much fun with creating maps)! I created the story, the dialogue, and all of the graphics for the game. Jesse, who will comment down below about his experience, made the game engine when it became clear that I was running out of time (he is much more experienced at game creation, so he was able to put it together pretty quickly). Everything was so crazy at the end that we almost didn't make the cutoff time for the contest, but we did and it is complete, even if I didn't get to add everything I was hoping for (such as multiple ending scenarios). The game is a story driven rpg about a young boy named Vance, who must join forces with his friends Leander and Kezia to save his town when people begin disappearing. There are some different paths in the game, though again I didn't get to add different endings to reflect these choices as I would have preferred. I would really appreciate some feedback on the game, especially since it was my first adventure with RPG Maker and I hope to make more someday (maybe for the next contest!). The game can be downloaded here: http://contest.rpgmakerweb.com/game/view/id/770#.U7OIMrEz2So I also uploaded a no-RTP version of the game that is much smaller, which can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxwGn4QONV-bbHZscmpOTEhfM2c/edit?usp=sharing And here are some screenshots of the game: Thanks for looking!
