TUOMO_L'S PROFILE

I have been making games since the year 2000, in this time my games have won numerous awards and many of them have been critically acclaimed. I have performed many different roles in game making; from making sprite art, audio editing, beta testing, coding, designing and being a team leader.

These experiences have led me to develop my skills as a videogame developer and it’s an ideal job for me, one that I had always dreamt of ever since I was little. Recently, I have ventured into releasing commercial games including updating my older projects into more commercial and presentable. My first commercially released game is called Save Your Mother.

Despite making games for long, I try and learn a bit something new every time I start new project and love to experiment on new areas and go away from my comfort zones.

hmm, i see... well if 200-400 MB is really that common i guess i wasnt that aware, at least the converting MP3 to OGG music files should make a dent.

as for you Tuomo_L, i am astounded that your project has breached a gig, i think this is the first time i have seen that with an RPG maker project, that has to be some sort of record.
My game is massive.
Out of curiosity, how many hours of gameplay is it?


Bare minimum 8 hours missing all side content.

Not counting grinding.

What are your long-term plans as a game developer?

Make enough money to be able to move into 3D development.

A lot of makers for years have been stumbling to put all three together, with varying degrees of success. So often you get games like Hero’s Realm, Phantom Legacy or The Way, traditional rpgs, made in rpgmaker that are well rounded but are often incredibly short experiences.

I agree with you wholeheartedly, but two of the games you mentioned here are actually quite long!

I do believe his mapping got better. I didn't realize he was still making games, to be honest. Got a link?

My biggest game so far is over 1,4GB. That doesn't include all the graphics for the game so I expect the filesize to climb to 1,5-2 GB at full release, depending on how complex the emotion busts become. This is very small in size for a videogame nowadays though, Tekken 7 is 61 GB.
Friendo, you might wanna consider compressing some of your audio assets. Since you're not even accounting for graphics, I'm guessing the majority of that filesize is uncompressed sound files.

The Steam version of Soma Spirits was about 220MB, and about 90% of that was audio files. If you've got tons of uncompressed songs that are all several minutes you might really want to consider slimming down. No RM game should be more than 400-500 MB tops, even ones made in MV.

No, it's not just audio. IMG folder takes 588 MB alone even now, while missing majority of busts and expansive cutscene graphics at HD resolution.

I don't know where you bring 500 MB tops at, Strangers of Power is over 400 MB (653 with Trancevania DLC) and it's a fraction of what the Adventures game is in size, length and content.

I remember someone at GamingW saying that they were going to buy new Final Fantasy game but didn't buy it because they instead wanted to play the new Dooms when it was released on same day.

The thing that confused me the most about MISTERBIGT is that he used the program for many, many years and produced a great number of games but somehow his mapping never improved at all.


It did. You probably just haven't played the newer games.
