What kind of RPG can you make in just 3 hours?

How accessible is RPG Maker to a complete novice - using no tutorial? ILJG attempts to make an RPG in one evening. This is his story. (Dev, PC, RPG Maker VX Ace)

Hah, not a very long one... I've racked up about 52 hours already in VX ACE, still don't have anything over an hour long... Although I am working on two different projects at once. Cutscenes and things are big time gobblers for me personally since I'm a perfectionist.

It's an amazing tool. Love the fact that you can spend an evening and get noticeable results. Great community and tutorials too. It's really engrossing stuff.

Hahah, this was pretty funny. I've played around with RPG Maker in the past - it is really accessible. Still need to put in the hours to make anything decent, but it's still very enjoyable to 'play' in it's own right.

It's one of the few game-making tools that give's almost instant rewards. So it's actually fun. With anything like this though - you only get out what you out in. I think this and Source SDK are my favourite game making tools. Never got on with Game Maker.

One thing those tools do is highlight just how much work goes into making a game. Once you start to look into it, you realise just the vast amount of options, paths, details that need to be addressed to make even the simplest game. It's insane.
