Since I’ve been working on this game, I thought I’d finally upload some screenshots from it! The game revolves around Tsumugi Shirogane, who has ended up in a mysterious “world” with the Danganronpa characters. All that she knows is that she must restore the love-loves (relationships) between them. But in the process, Tsumugi discovers dark thoughts and feelings that she’d thought she’d hidden away forever, in the depths of her mind…

Hello all! Good morning! We just reached 101 followers and I can’t be more ecstatic about the support you’ve all given me! As a celebration, I would like to temporarily accept questions not for me or the game, but directed towards the characters. If you’ve ever been in the ask blog scene, it’ll be like that for a day or so. All posts will be organized and tagged “Character QandA” so if you want to avoid them, just blacklist that, and likely they’ll just be doodles of the characters, however! I think it’ll be a fun way to get to know the cast of the game a bit more ;)

So yes! Send asks to the ask box! You can direct them to Runi, the Professor, or Static 003 at this current time. Go wild! 

Just a heads up that Steam Summer Sales means RPG Maker software are at semi-affordable prices, in case you missed their humble bundle packs. >u>

So right now: 

  • RPG Maker 2000: Originally $25, currently $5
  • RPG Maker 2003: Originally $20, currently $3 (yes, RPG maker 2003 is cheaper than 2000 somehow)
  • RPG Maker XP: Originally $25, currently $5
  • RPG Maker VX: Originally $40, currently $8
  • RPG Maker VX Ace: Originally $70, currently $14
  • RPG Maker MV: Originally $80, currently $28 

VX Ace is probably the most commonly used version right now!  This is the one I mainly use, it’s very simple to use and there are thousands of tutorials for it. Most of the scripts you can download to do fancy stuff are for VX Ace. I’d recommend it for adventure/point and click games, but not for actual rpg games (mainly because there are no side battlers unless you download a script for it)

You can get RPG Maker VX Ace Lite for free, and there’s no time limit. You can make your own games, but you can’t make them for profit and you have less resources.

Note that RPG Maker VX Ace and RPG Maker MV are pretty much the same, but MV fixes a lot of stuff that was wrong with Ace (side battlers are back along with an extra layer) and lets you port to mobile devices. It also allows you to have the game on a website since it makes use of Javascript instead of Ruby (basically get MV if you have experience using RPG Maker, hated VX Ace, plan to make a game for Android or iOS, or if you are experienced in Javascripting). Also, MV’s tiles are bigger!

Out of the most affordable ones, XP is very similar to VX Ace and has a straightforward layering system and easy fog effects. 

Edit: Previously I mentioned this might make XP better than VX Ace in some aspects, but it’s been brought to my attention (thanks @rukomura for pointing it out!) that’s really only the case with the mapping system, and that the event system can be pretty buggy, so take care!

I haven’t tried RPG Maker 2003, but some of the most popular games were made there, like OFFYume Nikki, The Huntress of the Hollow and Pom Gets Wi-Fi so you can still do a lot with it! 

And… I actually have no idea about 2000 and VX. If you guys have experience with either, please reblog with more info.  >u>”

July’s Featured Game: SLARPG

DEVELOPER(S): Bobby “ponett” Schroeder
ENGINE: RPGMaker VX Ace 
GENRE: RPG, Fantasy
SUMMARY: SLARPG is a short, turn-based RPG following the story of Melody Amaranth, a kindhearted but meek transgender fox who’s decided to learn healing magic and become a paladin. She’s joined by her adventurous girlfriend Allison, as well as their friends Claire (a sarcastic, rule-bending witch)(she is also trans) and Jodie (a dependable, somewhat motherly knight). Over the course of the story, our inexperienced heroes will meddle with forces beyond their control and find themselves responsible for the fate of their quaint little hometown. They’ll also fight some spherical frogs, travel to a forgotten land in the sky, befriend a robot or two, and anger the local librarian. But that should go without saying.
