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.
The early morning light was
just beginning to filter into the bedroom, but Ron Weasley had no trouble
seeing his wife clearly. His clear-sightedness, both literal and figurative,
was legendary in the Auror corp. Perspicacious, that’s the word Hermione
taught him; she said she loved the way he could always see the things no one
Now more than ever he was
seeing clearly: his heart full as he watched her sleeping form. He gently moved
an errant curl from her face, careful not to wake her. She needed her rest: a
lopsided grin broke over his face she’s resting for two now.
The news was so fresh that
it still bore the weight of unreality. It was hard to imagine, almost
impossible to wrap your mind around, really. He ghosted his fingers across her
abdomen with awe. Their child was in there, right now. A child
that they had made, together. A child that would have his sense of humor and
her sense of determination. A child that would have her nose and his hair. Poor
kid…the Weasley hair…at least we can always see you in a crowd.
Ron’s thoughts began to run into a future full of firsts: first
