Okay, this one’s pretty awesome. If you’re seriously interested in creating your own 8 and 16-bit inspired role playing or other games, RPG Maker is an excellent tool to get into once you learn how to use it effectively. Of course, with the ton of great games that come in this week’s bundle, you may never get to playing around with the different programs you’ll snap up at a ridiculous price. Pay what you want for RPG Maker VX Ace, a DLC set of graphics and music you can use in your games, SEVEN games ready to play (Skyborn, Sweet Lily Dreams, Legionwood: The Tale of Two Swords, Star Stealing Prince, In Search for Immortality, and The Reconstruction. Each of these is a great example of what can be done with the software, but that’s ONLY the beginning (and if you’re a total cheapskate, you’ve ONLY spent a dollar or two so far!)
Just wait until you see what else is in this deal, folks…
Six bucks or more gets you all of the above and RPG Maker XP, an older but still widely used version of the game creation software, two huge resource packs, and SIX MORE FULL GAMES (Yaaaah!): To The Moon, Deadly Sin 2, Homework Salesman, I Miss the Sunrise, Aetherion, and Visions and Voices. As fantastic as that all is, I say drop twelve dollars down for everything above PLUS the Game Character Hub software, another big DLC resource pack and Legionwood 2: Rise of the Eternal’s Realm, the final game (for now) from Dark Gaia Studios. This is SUCH a great deal (about $370 worth of stuff in terms of the RPG Maker software and DLC alone) that even if you don’t play games but know someone who does and likes “retro” Japanese-style RPGs and perhaps wants to make their own, you should buy this bundle and gift it their way.
As a final bonus of sorts, you can enter or get that creative person you got this for to enter the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest where they can submit their creation for a chance to win $10,000 and plenty of attention from fans of these home-cooked games. Details can be found HERE. Okay, that’s a lot to take in, right? Well, make with the bundle buying NOW and sort it out later, Chief!
