NIRAVASI Devlog (02/02/2021): What a Week
Hey everyone,

It's me again; back from the eternal void that is my room. As I'm sure you already know, I've been really busy this past week with work on NIRAVASI. In case you haven't seen it yet, I've launched the Kickstarter campaign for NIRAVASI on the 26th January 2021. So what has happened since then? Well, it seems A LOT if I'm gonna be specific.


KingSangos talks about what's going on with the game's Kickstarter, the changes to content and bugfixes that have been implemented so far.
A Zelda fangame made in RM2K3 that is actually good? Blasphemy!
The gigantic list of crappy FFVII fangames probably goes to the moon and back, and the less said about Hunt Down the Freeman, the better.



Gretgor gives a rather in-depth review for Zelda: The Trident of Power!

I may have highlighted this because there's a kitty. Sue me.
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.

Hello and Welcome!

This was supposed to be the last regular entry in a series of interviews on rpgmaker.net. The goal of the series is to further promote RMN's featured games and creative minds behind them!
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!
