I recently got the RPG Maker XV Ace bundle from the HumbleBundle website for around $12, thinking I would eventually give it a go eventually. Last week I ran it, tried some tutorials and had a lot of fun!
I figured I would create a half-assed game or two to get my bearings then get to planning my dream RPG. Then I discovered the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest hosted by RPG Maker and Humble Bundle and knew I had to get in on it.
So here’s some screenshots my first RPG, which I will be submitting to the contest, it’s about 30% complete from a development standpoint and currently has about 15 minutes of gameplay (I am aiming for 30+ minutes in the end).
The rules say you must start no earlier than May 29th and submit it by June 30. I started on about June 15 so I’m already a little behind.
The game is currently called NatashaQuest but the name is still pending, as is the overall tone of the game (ie; I’m not entirely sure if I want it to be humorous or serious).
More updates soon! :)
