Want to make your own games, RPG Maker MV could be just what you have been looking for. There have been a few versions of this and most lewd games that you play are made using a version of it. What makes this so interesting is that as well as being on PC. They have also made this available for the Switch and the PS4 as well, but those versions are more limited than what you can do with the PC version. Still, it is pretty awesome that they exist and I ended up playing around a lot with the Switch version.
Get To Work
One of the most surprising aspects of RPG Maker MV is how little hand-holding there is. You will have to do a tutorial when you start, but it is very quick and it appears to want you to learn by doing. I can see some people being completely lost here, to be honest with you! I would very much advise that you use one of the million YouTube videos that are out there to teach you how this thing actually works. You do that and you are going to have so much more fun with this.
Making A Game
You will start by making the most basic of “games” in RPG Maker MV, making some scenery, and then programing a character to walk and things like that. These are basically the building blocks for you making a game. You have lots of sprites that you can make use of, but the PC version allows you to install all kinds of plugins and use custom sprites, these features are missing from the console version, but I have to be honest and say that I expected this. I would wager that most people's first games will be very basic, but this is very much a learning experience kind of game where the more things you make with it the more ambitious your games will be.
Learning By Doing
The UI in the PC version is pretty solid and by a mile, it is the best version of RPG Maker MV. I did find that it was easier to fumble around and figure things out in the PC version than on the Switch version I also played. Things in this game take a lot of time and patience, no matter if it is writing the story or getting something to work just the way you want it to. This is a game that demands a pretty big time sink from the player.
Sharing The Fun
A huge part of the appeal of RPG Maker MV is being able to share your games with the rest of the world. With the PC version, you can even sell your games! That is way above my level, but for those who can pull it off, you could start a whole new career with this and that is pretty awesome. You can also download other people’s games to try out as well which is a lot of fun. The console versions are much more limited in this regard, you can still share and download games, but I do not think there is anyway to make money from them.
I think that RPG Maker MV has all the tools you need to make a solid RPG. It is a fun tool that can teach you how making a game works, it is like a more in-depth Mario Maker type thin, but for RPGs. While the PC version of this is the best, I must admit, there is just something very cool about the fact that there is a Nintendo Switch version of this game. Even though it is more limited, I am far more likely to mess around with this on the Switch.
