Rated 5 out of5 byMakerofGames fromThe best tool around for wannabe game makersAnyone who ever played video games as a kid probably had the desire at one point or another to make their own game. For those who dared to step forward and actually try it they quickly find that it's a very difficult task. The process of creating a functional video game is not trivial at all and requires whole teams of storyboard writers, artists, programmers, public relations specialists and marketing people months or years to create. Each skill needed- programming, graphics design, music design, sound effects creation can take years to learn. This series of software was one of the first I ever hit on that allows the simple creation of games. The coding system requires no programming but includes that option for advanced users. The map design, enemies, skills, weapons, items, etc are all easy to create using the included builders. There is a huge online support community involved in the RPG Maker series. Anyone interested in learning the process of making video games should definitely check out this software.
