This week, we have something extra special to go along with our releases: We're having a Steam Publisher Sale! Plus an Animation event to celebrate the release of the 1.4 MZ Update!
On top of our releases today, we also have a STEAM PUBLISHER WEEKEND! That means huge deals not just on tons of RPG Maker engines and resources, but also on a whole slew of amazing games, from RPGs, to Shmups, to Fighting games! Check out the full publisher sale HERE.
But it is still release day as well, so let's take a look at what's new for RPG Maker!
Give your retro adventure a cute pixelated world with MT Tiny Tales Overworld Tiles! With over 20 tileset sheets to choose from, you can create amazing outdoor and town maps for your heroes to explore. Craft bright forests, desert towns, snowy mountains, and more with this pack!
Fill your forests with lush trees and flowering bushes, and use darker dirt to mark the paths next to flowing streams. Give your rocky mountain regions some pops of green with pine trees and your tundra a bit of humor with random snowmen between frosty bushes and leafless tree trunks. And when your heroes need a break from exploring all these locations, build them a town to rest in. With different roofs and walls to choose from, you can give each town its own style.
If all that wasn’t enough, this pack also includes interior tiles! So don’t worry about stocking your town’s shops, with armor, weapons racks, and bagged supplies your heroes will always be able to find what they need! Decorate the local bar with bottles and tempting meals, or give each room in the inn fresh flowers and cheery curtains. And a selection of bookshelves, cupboards, and pots give your npcs options to decorate their homes however they want.
All the tiles come in sizes for MV/MZ and Ace, along with the original 16x16 size, so it should be easy to add these tilesets to your favorite engine. Give your heroes some adorable towns and outdoor maps with MT Tiny Tales Overworld Tiles!
Have you been waiting for some detailed pixel art battlers for your heroes to fight? Your wait is over thanks to Otani Pixel Fantasy Enemy Pack Vol.2! This pack contains 30 gorgeous battlers to give your heroes brand new challenges in battles. Will your heroes defeat a toxic slime or will they run when facing off against a muscular and angry centaur?
10 unique monsters cover a range of possible foes to face. Battle against gooey snail-shaped slimes and wooden treants in forests and sunny plains, and challenge armed lizardmen and snake-haired naga in caves and on mountain trails. Larger enemies like rearing centaurs and hulking cyclops are perfect for wild boss battles. If you’ve been wanting a ship-based boss fight? Then grab the jellyfish-like kraken!
And with each monster having 3 variations, you can make battles even more interesting. Give each fire spirit its own battle style, with yellow summoning explosive butterflies, green healing its allies, and red wreathed in blazing flames to stop close combat. Or use the three distinct vampires as sisters who rule a dark castle together, meaning the only way to escape is to beat all three in combat. But be careful of the different zombies that wander the castle halls!
This pack’s battlers come in two sizes, so you can easily choose the size that better fits your game. Pick up Otani Pixel Fantasy Enemy Pack Vol.2 today and get ready to fight some incredible enemies!
To celebrate the Steam release of Castle of Shikigami 2 we made a FREE character pack for RPG Maker users based on the game! These materials include battlers, face, walking sprites, and standing picture graphic for the seven characters from Castle of Shikigami 2.
But that's not all! We also have the MZ Battle Animation Showdown being hosted on Steam! To show off the new MZ Update which includes RPG Maker Engine updates for Effekseer and the ability to use the older MV style Frame Animations, we've decided it is the perfect time to host an Animation Competition! Head over to Steam HERE to learn the full rules and how to enter!
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.
