An artstyle, that is not RTP and includes everything to make a whole game with it usually comes at a price, and if you want everything in a new style, that could be a pretty high one. But not in this case!
I don’t know how old you are, but remember the time, when your parents were not at home and you had unlimited access to your precious game boy color and played these nowadays old but great games for hours? Do you wanna have that vibe in your game?
Don’t let yourself be thrown off the very humble description The Mighty Palm wrote for his Mighty Pack!
Hidden in the General Section of our forums, and veiled by a too humble thread there is great stuff to be found!
And don’t worry - VX/Ace, MV, MZ - while the set is from scratch and not bound to any engine, but if you use one of these four, there are plug and play graphics!
Let us start with the things you will barely ever see in a free pack:
The Mighty pack comes with its own iconset. So if you want to have a nice, overall cohesive look on your game, fitting icons can be that one tiny detail that’s hard to find - and here it is already included!
If you might worry about not being able to have the characters to form your party for the game… Well, there are 32 different actor sprites.
8 of the available 32 actors, and even though they are very tiny, each of them has their own style and personality!
And to fill up your game there are NPCs with plenty of recolors and also characters like knights and a king to bring life to the castles they might explore.
Talking about exploring, what is there to explore?
The Mighty Pack includes not only a full interior and exterior tileset, it also comes with an overworld set to create a matching worldmap.
The tiles allow you to create a broad range of different maps and areas to travel through!
A lot of the exterior tiles come in a snowy version as well, so you can not only map a cold area but also can consider visiting an area several months apart or free an area from a winter curse (Elsa, was that you?)
In the characters set there are also several animated items as chests to make exploring your maps more exciting!
The only downside I could see is that there are no monsters by default included, but you might either find some other available online, create an on map battle system or just have a puzzle-based game instead.
And that is actually very easy, with all the leavers and traps and stuff in this set!
What would you do with these? A retro RPG? A puzzle game? Let us (and The Mighty Palm in his thread maybe?) know!
MZ’s default animation style uses Effekseer to create incredible animations, but it can be tough to get used to using it. And what if you prefer cell-based animation creation like in previous RPG Makers? Let’s take a look at how to make some MV-style animations in MZ thanks to the 1.4.0 update.
