The True RPG Horrors! - Pet Peeves in RPG Maker Horror Games:
Looking through what aspects through rpg maker horror games (or just rpg maker games in general) on what makes and breaks a game, prepare for a really in-depth time. We’re going on an adventure through the most basic aspects of a game that you can see in a game, all the way to the things that people make up as “canon”.
Over the years since the birth of games like Yume Nikki, Ib, Mad Father, The Crooked Man and other iconic titles, there have been titles introduced into the rpg maker community which are iconic, but for reasons which are…bad…in one aspect or more! Anytime I don’t speak about a game that’s featured, that means that the gameplay just fills the video with something to look at while hearing.

The video also serves to show if you’re a developer yourselves on what and what not to include in your game(s). At times, a rant is here and there but ultimately should be at best educational with a little banter involved. Took about half a day to prepare this video including gameplay recording, voice recording and editing.
