So you want to make an RPG Maker game?

You might or might not be aware that there are several engines in the RPG Maker series. I have used several of said engines and find some more convenient in use than others, but what might work for me might not work for you, so please don’t take this for a set in stone judgement of every RPG Maker version out there.

Before I talk about specific engines, I want to inform you that not all of these engines are sold in the west and some are not even available in Japan any more. If you want to release your game commercially your only option will be to purchase RPG Maker engines that are for sale on RPG Maker Web or other certified sellers, though I am going to list other engines too for people who aren’t interested in making money off of their games. 

Even if not all engines have seen official releases in the west, there are still a lot of forums and other fan sites that have resources, tutorials and fan translations of said engines. It is not my intention to link you to downloads of these engines nor am I here to judge anyone for their engine of choice, so I’m just going to go over what I know about them.

Please take into account that I am only going to talk about the RPG Maker versions that are released for PC! There are console RPG Maker versions as well, but I know very little about them and since they are not convenient for sharing your game with others, I have not as much interest in them.

On to the list!

El juego es enorme por lo probablemente se me paso algo mientras lo probaba así que, si encuentran algo, no duden en avisarme.

Hay un bug cuando se consiguen habilidades nuevas en batalla que hace que el nombre de la habilidad aparezca corrido. Di lo mejor de mi para tratar de arreglarlo pero no me fue posible. Espero que no les resulte una molestia al jugar.

*La traductora al ingles, Vgperson, cambio el nombre a Standstill Girl [Chica Parada].

Acá les dejo una guía (Hecha por Vgperson) de como obtener todas las habilidades y los finales.
