Was looking into RPGmaker games again, and there are just so many hidden gems waiting to be found.
I don't know how much people know about them, so I thought I might start a topic here~

...
Feel free to recommend, discuss any RPGmaker games, I might even make a master list on this first post eventually, but for now; I will just do a little at a time.

To play free RPGmaker games, you will need the corresponding RPGmaker RTP (package with all the resources)

Desert Nightmare
8/10
Length : A Day?
A horror adventure about a girl stuck in a quiet town... with no way out... Kind of like a horror movie.
Status : Complete.

Download : http://rpgmaker.net/...ms/topics/2421/
Engine : RPGmaker 2000

Desert Nightmare is a nice German RPGmaker game that's been translated into english. It's pretty compelling, and it feels like a decent horror movie; although it didn't seem that scary to me. I highly recommend it, for a dark adventure!
Tell me what you think~


On the flipnote, there are really bad RPGmaker games... but they can be amusing :

I think there's six RPGs that are in the same series, think it's called "The Way"... The main character is Rhue, and that's all I can recall...

Ohhhh yes, The Way is one of my favorites, actually! (It's up there in my all time favorite RPGs...)
Here...

The Way
9/10
Length : Weeks
A very original fantasy RPG that excels at creating a compelling world with strong characters; in a very dark story. (There are options to skip battles and the mini-games.)
Status : Complete.

Alternate youtube song :

Download : http://www.crestfall...s/download.html
Alternate Download : http://rpgmaker.net/games/507/
Engine : RPGmaker 2000

The Way is a pretty dark story though, and it does start kind of slow. But, by episode 2 you should start to be sucked into this detailed world. Not for everyone, but I'm not the only one that calls this game a masterpiece...

I've got RPG maker 2003. It's so cool. I'm kind of stuck though.

The RPG Maker site... I think that's where I got some RPGs like The Way, Pokémon Topaz, Throne's Ascension, Eternal Destiny (RPG Maker 2003, I think), Fallen Wings, Master of Souls, Bloodsphere...

Oh... I haven't heard of any of those... I will have to get them next!

...I ended up downloading every RPG that had a 3.5 star or better on RPGmaker.net lol That was a lot of games...

And there's a ton of secrets in The Way too, which makes it hard, and I like hard games, so it's one of my favourite RPGs too!

Spoiler

But now, I'm trying to go through it all over again, with battles and minigames skipped (well, numerous of the hard ones).

Two days!! ...It took me like 400 hours... :o But, I did have battles and mini-games on, plus finished all secrets and endings.

I can't post it, i'm not on a file sharing website yet, but in my game (my first attempt at games) theres this bit where you rescue a little girl from a volcano, but i can't find a way to make her follow the hero back to her village.

How many games, precisely? I guess more than a hundred?

EVERY SECRET!?

Oh, and is Pokémon Topaz included? And I've heard of Pokémon Steel, even downloaded it (didn't work any time I tried), and deleted it. Have to keep free space on my computer if I want to make new Pokémon only to place on my desktop (like a multiplication and division version of Plusle and Minun: Multiplo and Divida). And to install new games and to make more Cave Story mods. Could you make a list of all those games you downloaded? I'd like to see whether it may be something I'm interested in. I even have two Dragon Ball Z RPGMaker games from that site... but now I'll end here. I just hope I don't end up adding pastry as an enemy in a CS mod...
The real Shane seeks the truth, I seek to ruin his reputation. And so far, I am winning. That fool and that stupid ex-girlfriend of mine will pay dearly. :mad:

Ooo... Sounds interesting... I wanted to make a RPGmaker game... But, after I lost most of my work I kind of gave up on that project...
Mmmmm, what's the name of your first game? :D

How many games, precisely? I guess more than a hundred?

Somewhere in the 80s, but I've only played through a handful of them...

I downloaded all the RPGmaker games that I could with those ratings (from that particular site); that were complete; and my second pass downloading got hopefully most of the good rated demos. This doesn't account for RPGs with no ratings though... If it's new or if nobody reviewed it yet.

EVERY SECRET!?


Spoiler


Oh, and is Pokémon Topaz included?

Nope... I found a site that has a demo? of Pokemon Topaz, (RpgRevolution.com)
It has a lott of games that I haven't tried... But, almost all the ratings are 3 stars. So... I can't really judge the games by ratings on that site.

And I've heard of Pokémon Steel, even downloaded it (didn't work any time I tried), and deleted it. Have to keep free space on my computer if I want to make new Pokémon only to place on my desktop (like a multiplication and division version of Plusle and Minun: Multiplo and Divida).

Mmmm I'm running out of space slowly as well... >< I am backing up everything on my external drive though :D
Here... I put together a quick list of all the ... files/games I downloaded, the ones with a number in front I've rated; and the select few with a * at the end, I've played all the way through.
Spoiler

My ratings are skewed towards my interests though...
For example "wither" which I rated a 3, is really well put together... But, it was just a random depressing game that I wish I hadn't played.
While Schwombo which I rated a 7, is... sort of ridiculously put together lol But, it was a lot more enjoyable.

Mmmm Pastry....
and whew long post.
