Pixel Game Maker MV
Recently I have been using the 30 day trial of Pixel Game Maker MV on Steam. Today I decided to purchase this engine to complete a game that has been in my backlog for far too long. As you may or may not know, I have been developing a 2D action platformer using the Unity engine. While Unity is no doubt a powerful engine, the coding aspect, along with some other issues, prevented me from continuing my project.

Designing Pure Heart's Gameplay

Pure Heart was originally a collaborative effort for a 2 week beginner’s game jam. I was in charge of the story and graphics while my partner worked on programming and music. However, due to conflicts working with each other, we decided to go our separate ways.

Aldu talks about how they went about designing the gameplay for Pure Heart and the challenges that came their way.
Ad Magnificum
I am ashamed to admit that when I first watched a let's play of Oneshot when it first came out all the way back in 2014, my impression of it was that it was "overrated."

Thankfully, over the span of the last 5 years, I've learned to enjoy some of the rpg maker games I previously didn't care for at all. With the commercial version of Oneshot having collected digital dust in my steam library for a while since I bought it, I figured it was a good idea to give this game another shot.

Hello and Welcome,
to this very belated issue of regular series of interviews on rpgmaker.net. The goal of the series is to further promote featured games and their authors.

This month I talked to someone I had known nothing about previously. Ghosthunter is a new player and Grimm's Hollowis a very impressive for a first game.

Or can the two find common ground?

November 2019 Update and Process
Hey everyone. This is going to be a long-form discussion about my process to make up for the lack of updates here. I have been hard at work and those of you who follow me on Twitter and that are in the Verified Discord server have seen some of the changes I've been making as they happen. I'm going to consolidate what I've done over the past couple of months while detailing my process here.
FEATURED GAME, FEATURED DEV: CALUNIO

It's great to see a game from Calunio featured. Back when I joined RMN he was one of the prominent developers with an interesting take on the engine and a very analytical reviewer. We still chat about his games from time to time, because their themes are completely different and their mechanics original. Beautiful Escape: Dungeoneer is one of his better known games. I would say that gameplay mechanics reflect your avatar well. This game's about sadism and torture. If you're interested in this dark twist on dating sims, you can read a proper description and download it here.
RPG Maker Cola - Episode 001 (FT. JOSEPHSERAPH & FROGGE)
It’s a chill space where we get together skilled developers from the RPG Maker community to chat cordially and occasionally non-cordially about game development, game design and probably a whole bunch of unrelated other stuff, too!

RM HISTORIA MARCH 2019 ROUNDUP
RM Historia aims to go through the RPG Maker games that time has forgot and provide context behind the communities they were made in. It also dwells on the connections prevalent in our media in order to try and better make sense of this fast internet high-way.

Secretly it's just an excuse to post screenshots/video coverage and keywords of rm2k/3 games for the giant search machines to latch onto.
One of the finest puzzle games on the site
Grimps: Squeaking of the Dead is a truly astounding game. From its graphical presentation to its animations to the way the developer Momeka presents a storyline without words, everything is quality street, baby. If its prequel, Grimps: A Christmas Puzzle, was an interesting diversion (I would rate it around 4 stars), this game is a strong and definite improvement on every level.

This action-puzzle game is a dodge-game Franksteined with your traditional tile-based puzzle, and it's actually really great.
