Though I may not look it, I'm really untelligent.
Valor Emblem
TRPG made with Sim RPGMaker95




Makes me think of StarTropics.

Oh. Oh, okay.
But I can't see yuna taking Legionwood as a rival seriously. More like something that needs to be stamped. Like Pom.


I don't think Joseph's intention was that we talk about ourselves exclusively from an RM standpoint but...

Even though I've been RMing since 1999 or 2000, I didn't join a community until RPGCrisis in 2008, and that was only because I had questions about Sim RPG Maker 95. I wish I'd joined a community earlier, because then maybe I'd have had the drive to actually finish something. Maybe I'd have something to show for all those years of monkeying around.


Tristian : Lady of the Misaos in 2016.

Another milestone

I'll say it for her, and probably for a few more of us too. It's mediocre. I wouldn't even argue anyone saying it's lower than mediocre. The only reason it got as much attention as it did is because, for several years, it was the only completed 15+ hour jRPG made in a non-2k maker, and has plenty of tropes/cliches to add familiarity for any newcomers to the indie RPG scene.

On a complimentary note, it inadvertently serves as a bridge game between mainstream and indie, as RM goes. If we got off our artsy fartsy high horses, we could probably learn something about audience catering from it, though I personally think Dark Gaia's Right Stuff, Right Time story was more accidental than intelligent effort.

Another milestone

What if you made your airship free-fly like FF4, but had plot boundaries at the edge of the map? I've seen that method done before, like in Legacies of Dondoran, and I intend to use it myself in future games.

People nowadays are far more likely to sink their time into playing a one hour long game made in a month

I think that has more to do with the rash of review drives, actually. The MS value for a review of Everlong is identical to one for Barbarians and the Necromancer's Tower.

What does RPGmaker.net think of anime?

Back in the mid-90s when buying and watching every localized anime was a legitimate possibility, I used to do just that. A lot of summer job hours went into my giant VHS collection with which I, ironically, have no VHS player for anymore.

Anime is different now. The mainstream is being populated by ecchi filth, for one. Remakes galore, similar to what Hollywood does when it's creativity dries up.
And a lot of the nouveau ideas Japan comes up with nowadays just don't do it for me. Maybe I'm just getting old. My nephew was watching Naruto, and when he found out we both "liked anime", he asked me if I thought Naruto was a good show by my standards. I said my shonen anime growing up were Flame of Recca and The Guyver, and they're mostly the same. Granted, Naruto goes on and on and on, whereas FoR and Guyver followed master plans and came to conclusions sufficient endings.

Ultimate Survivor Kaiji

...is pretty much the only thing I look forward to anymore. Where's my Season 3, dammit?
