Over the past couple weeks, I have found renewed interest in RPG Maker again. Having played with it on and off over the past decade, I decided to explore the newest version: RPG Maker VX Ace.
Previously I had worked with RPG Maker 95 a bit, but hadn’t really gotten in to it too extensively until RPG Maker 2000. I recall working quite a bit on an game using it but never got beyond the opening. For the most part, up until now, the most work I had done on one was to create a town, a hero, and a part of the world map. All with no planning at all; likely the reason it was never completed.
So now that I have a better understanding of game design, I have begun writing the story and laying out the characters and locations. Though my true passion is setting up the framework for the game itself, so I have already done the bulk of that for my new game: The Ethereal Plains.
Without going in to too much detail as of now, let me just attach a screenshot to show you the basic design of a town.
More details and even a gameplay video will follow in the coming days.
