Have You Ever Tried To Make An RPG? It's Really Hard

Leviathyn.com | "I’m sure that like most gamers, you’ve had an idea for your own RPG. You’ve probably thought that about your world and you’ve probably wanted to share your world by the means of today’s most popular media, gaming. Have you ever really tried to make an RPG though? It’s freaking complicated!" (Culture)

I was working on one for a couple months on RPG Maker... Yes, it is quite hard indeed, especially when you get into branching text based on decisions. Having to go through each and every possible outcome and action over and over making sure there are no ways to break a certain branch gets quite tiring lol.

Which is why you have a team doing that sort of thing.

To which higher ups often force their own agenda not caring about how such effects production.

I was using a simple game engine once but I hated how every game from that engine looked exactly the same. So I stopped, lol. Maybe I'll pick it up again at a later point.

I want to learn the open source engine that Spiral Knights used.

Doing so right now, actually. And yeah, it's very hard. Time consuming, too. Due to some unfortunate incidents- like losing all the related data- it's been close to ten years and we're a long way from finished.

Still, I think it'd be worth it.

Spend less time ranting on N4G and i bet you could get an amazing RPG done.

In another 10 years...
