    I had to call attention to this awesome deal. If you're interested in game creation at all, you'll want to get in on this.

    https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly

    A dollar or more gets you RPG Maker VX Ace, the newest RPGM software, DLC for VX Ace, and a bunch of games made with the software.

    Six dollars or more gets you the above, with RPG Maker XP, more DLC for VX Ace, and more games.

    Twelve dollars or more gets you all of the above and Game Character Hub, even more DLC, and another game.

    if you ever wanted to make your own game, you're not going to get a better deal than this.

    If you don't know what Game Character Hub is, it's character creation software for all PC RPG Maker titles. It can convert sprite sheets between the different maker formats, as well as lets you build sprites piece by piece from different parts.

    Thanks for the heads up Valkysas. I wish I could give more but my funds are a bit low at the moment. Still I tossed $50 at them. Now this time hopefully I'll actually use the software! Hehe.

    Out of curiosity Valkysas if you know, I used a previous RPG Maker that, with a mod, allowed a Chrono Trigger-esque battle mode. I don't suppose that battle style is now officially supported in one of these bundles?

    One of the packs you can pick up in this is the sci-fi pack.

    Nothing is built in, but you can always use a custom script.

    Thanks for the heads up. I already have VX Ace. But the DLC's are worth the price for me.

    The games are a added bonus.

    "To The Moon" is a great story driven game to play.

    I picked up the $12 bundle today. I had a lot of fun playing around with the old RPG Maker on PS1 and with it being so cheap on Humble I couldn't pass it up.

    Hey valk maybe suggest a thread name change after the sale ends so we can continue to discuss RPG maker games/creation here. I don't think a thread exists for that yet?

    I was just working on a bullshit project over the past few months but a friend was doing the same and we were able to learn quite a bit about it by feeding off eachother. We could also post our projects here for people to try/test. I mean my game's main character is a prostitute who has to perfect her art by beating other prostitutes and gathering slave companions. Who wouldn't want to play that?

    I am not opposed to that idea.

    yeah, but you'll really need gimp or photoshop to make full use of the program. everything is custom and editable, and what isn't can be manipulated with scripts. that character program looked pretty nice though and I think I'll toss another 6 bucks at them for it. it looks like it streamlines some of the things that are a bit time consuming in PS. and 6 bucks for more automation is pretty cheap.
