DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that RPG Maker used to be just a hobbyist software? That's right, for a game engine that's been around since 1992, it's easy to think that the software has already fallen under the fad. But no, RPG Maker remains a relevant tool for RPG geeks. In fact, Steam releases hundreds of games each year. This includes several commercial games like To the Moon, LISA, and Corpse Party. Thanks to the developers' persistence, over a million units have already been sold on Steam as of April of 2018. Well, you might wonder, how did it come to be the engine that everybody seems to love?
To tell you the truth, back in the early '90s, RPG Maker wasn't gaining much popularity. It only caught the attention of hardcore JRPG fans. It was only in 2007, when the community began making changes to the way they make themselves known. They started a central repository, dubbed as the RPG Maker Network, where people can find pieces of advice and share their own games as well. Many of the games distributed there were just tech demos, proofs-of-concept, and small projects. During that time, all these games were free. Then came 2013, when 188 new titles entered the RPG Maker Network. The number of releases keeps piling in each year, and RPG Maker successfully became a tool for aspiring developers who want to make it in the gaming industry. Are you one of them? Why don't you try making your own RPG? Yours might just be one of the best RPG Maker games soon!
