RPG Maker MZ!

I think people aren't wowed by this news. The sprites look like an improvement to me (would've preferred tall but at least they aren't needlessly cute).

The features seem like they are more quality of life improvements, which are welcome but may not be enough for people to make the switch.

This drip-drip-drip announcement style is still annoying, though!

@Momeka: That screen is great! What engine and game? (if you don't mind my asking)

New RPG Maker incoming?

On a side note, imagine loading up the switch e-shop and seeing the same hundreds of identical-looking games and game screenshots like you do with RPGM on Steam. No thanks...

Totally agree.

I think like JosephSeraph says, they'll probably double down on their mobile porting capabilities, which may be nice. I'd hop on that band-wagon.

New RPG Maker incoming?

RPG Maker is itself mainly an engine for hobbyist. It is great to see what people can do with the engine when thinking creatively and testing it's limits. I'd argue that's the charm of the engine. That's why RM2k3 games always impress me the most!

JosephSeraph you bring up some good points re 3D. I hadn't thought about it in that way. Probably because of my lack of knowledge and experience with working in 3D.

Darken, on the porting, some of the $$$ estimations I've heard--YIKES!

New RPG Maker incoming?

I never tried Smile Maker. I have no interest in 3D. The amount of assets I'd have to create and their cost...I shudder to think about it.

Kaempfer, love the buried chest in the sand! Love the attention to detail.

FF7 remake. It's a thing.

I loved the the start...

And then:
- the battle system seemed slow and boring (not every battle has to be epic!)
- Cloud in battles was the worst (so slow!--tifa and barrett all the way)
- The last two chapters were brutal (soooo many long, drawn-out, daunting boss battles)
- The very last chapter was such a mess I wanted my money back (oh, and I hit a glitch in it that made me have to restart the entire battle)

But the game looks gorgeous and the music, even the new tunes, are great. At first I realized that I didn't really need this remake and was enjoying the game the same way I enjoyed DBZ Kakarot (for nostalgia), but the last chapter...oh, my God, what were they thinking? Fine to go outside of the main story, but it should at least make sense!

Whatchu Workin' On? Tell us!

I'm finishing up a pretty big dungeon in the midpoint of my game. It's a snowy, ashy, red and gray mountain. The boss at the peak is going to key in the Epic Boss track for the firs time, so that's exciting!

New RPG Maker incoming?

I'm excited for the next RPG Maker. I'm not liking the way they are announcing it, providing some information every week. Just tell me it all NOWWW!!

I am unlikely to use the next RPG Maker as I'm already heavily invested in RMMV. I keep thinking to myself, what would make me switch to a new RMMV? I haven't really come up with a good enough answer.

But I'm still going to purchase it on opening day. I've been part of this community since Don Miguel and RM95. I support it fully (even if I'm sometimes more of a lurker than a poster).

Love the screenshot! Can't wait for this game to come out.
