    RPGmaker is good program. Here is my positive and negative thoughts;

    + easy to use. adding new class, character, skill, item and so on have never been this easy. + powerful. scripting mechanism allows you to make almost everything you want to game, but... i'll talk about it later. + flexible. Games like Yume nikki, Middens, and Touhou - wandering souls are made by this program. They
    RPGmaker is good program. Here is my positive and negative thoughts;

    + easy to use. adding new class, character, skill, item and so on have never been this easy.
    + powerful. scripting mechanism allows you to make almost everything you want to game, but... i'll talk about it later.
    + flexible. Games like Yume nikki, Middens, and Touhou - wandering souls are made by this program. They are pretty different-like, themed and working games.
    - Cost. 60 euros is much money. But if you are high level on steam, you will get it twice as much cheaper. (one of my my friends can get it for 17e...)
    - Learning usage. Scripting is HELL. only thing which made me give 9 instead of 10 is SCRIPTING. There is bunch of things to know about scripting before you can make amazing RPG game.

    I'll recommed this software if money is not broblem for you. (it is for me, thought)

    It takes some effort to figure out how to make it work, but well worth it. Having a blast with this. Good learning tool for kids too. Visuals are old skool, but its easy enough to add your own content to the graphics files.

    RPG maker isn't strictly speaking a game in itself, but it's a decent tool for allowing you to create your own game. What's really notable about it is how easy it is to pick up for people who are unfamiliar with programming and have never made a game before. At the same time it is also powerful and versatile enough to be used even by experts.

What's really notable about it is how easy it is to pick up for people who are unfamiliar with programming and have never made a game before. At the same time it is also powerful and versatile enough to be used even by experts. As the name implies, RPG maker is mostly for making Role-playing games. Simple 2D JRPGs with random encounters can be made without the use of any scripts, but with the help of scripts even more advanced mechanics and battle systems can be added to one's games. RPG maker already comes with a lot of resources to help with game-making - music, sprites, battler art, and so on, but it allows the user to import custom resources as well. VX Ace is the newest of the RPG makers on PC and it is the most advanced, giving more versatility than the ones before, as well as adding some new features as well, such as a character creator. It can be up to a lot of debate whether it does everything better than previous RPG makers or not, for example RPG maker XP's mapping system is considered better by many people due to the use of multiple layers, but on the other hand, VX Ace allows some parts of the scenery and other decorations to be used as events, which can be utilised to make some stunning cutscenes, such as things appearing out of the ground on a whim, or changing colour or shape, and so on. The games can be made of any length and size and can be eventually sent to other people to be played, and overall RPG maker is a good starting point for anyone who's considered even for a minute to make their own game. In addition to what the program already has, there's also a whole community out there, with artists, musicians and script-designers making their own custom resources for others to use in their games. When one thinks about it, there aren't many limits to what can be done in RPG maker. Expand
