If you've ever wanted to create your own old-school, 2D, SNES-style RPG, now is the time to check out RPG Maker
, because the Weekly Humble Bundle
is featuring the Steam version of RPG Maker VX Ace (the latest and overall best iteration of RPGM). Normally $70, with this bundle, you can get the program + some resource add-ons + a couple of games for whatever price you want - pay a dollar if you like! Or pay a bit more (supporting a couple of worthwhile charities along the way) and get more resources and games (as well as one of the older, but still fairly popular, versions of RPGM).
The bundle is only up for two more days as of this post. Normally, I'd recommend some research and careful consideration before diving into the fun but daunting world of RPGM, but for this price, who cares?
If you have the slightest interest in the idea of creating these kinds of games, pick it up!
