The RPGMaker tag refers to games that were created using the RPG Maker software. RPG Maker is a game development engine that allows users to create their own role-playing games (RPGs) without extensive coding knowledge. The software provides pre-designed assets, tilesets, character sprites, and battle systems, making it accessible for aspiring game developers to bring their RPG visions to life.

Games tagged with RPGMaker often share common characteristics such as:

  • Pixel Art Graphics RPG Maker games commonly feature pixel art graphics reminiscent of retro video games, drawing inspiration from classic SNES-era role-playing games like Final Fantasy VI or Chrono Trigger. These visuals can evoke nostalgia while also allowing for creative customization by the game's creators.
  • Turn-Based Battles Many RPGMaker titles adopt turn-based combat systems where players take turns with enemies in strategic battles. Players typically select actions such as attack, defend, or use items from a menu system. The battles may involve additional features like magic spells or special abilities unique to each character or enemy encountered in the game.
  • Detailed Storylines Role-playing elements are heavily emphasized in RPGMaker games. They often feature complex, immersive narratives with quests, dialogue-driven interactions with diverse characters, and sometimes branching paths or multiple endings. These stories can range from epic fantasy adventures to contemporary dramas and even horror-themed tales.

RPGMaker offers various versions of its software over the years, such as RPG Maker VX Ace and more recent ones like RPG Maker MZ which bring improved functionalities and enhancements to the game creation process.

Some notable RPGMaker games available on Steam include:

  • To the Moon Developed by Freebird Games, this emotional narrative-driven game follows two doctors who fulfill dying patients' final wishes by traversing through their memories. The gameplay focuses on character interactions, exploration, and puzzle-solving elements.
  • Night in the Woods An adventure game developed by Infinite Fall, Night in the Woods centers around a college dropout named Mae who returns to her hometown and explores themes of friendship, identity, and personal growth.

  • Ace Academy A romance visual novel developed by PixelFade Inc., Ace Academy combines elements of dating sims with a futuristic aviation academy setting. Players navigate through school life while making choices that impact their relationships with various characters.
