Product Description

Ever want to try your hand at making games? Now Agetec has delivered a timeless masterpiece that will help many gamers fulfill their dream of constructing a video game--albeit a role-playing game--from scratch.

With RPG Maker for the PlayStation, would-be game designers can finally create their own digital world. All you need is a PlayStation, a little imagination, a lot of time, and you can create your own Final Fantasy, Ogre Battle, or Dragon Warrior adventure--sort of. It takes teams of 50 to 100 people two to three years to design and create the RPGs that we play today. If you think you've got the patience to do it on your own, then this game (or should we say set of tools) has a lot to offer.

Write, design, and control everything from the story line to dungeon designs, to organizing and constructing the towns in your game. You can even choose item locations, weapons, and enemy hit-point totals. Such standard, modern-day RPG elements are all at your disposal here. For those who really want to go for all the gusto, you can design and animate your own characters from scratch! The animation quality doesn't approach a Disney level, but at least the option is there.

This isn't a plug-and-play type of title; it will take you quite some time just to figure out where you want to start. If you don't have the patience to play a traditional RPG to the finish, then you might want to pass on RPG Maker. For everyone else, there's no better place to start! --Todd Mowatt


  • Players can create their own role-playing adventure from scratch
  • Players can design and animate their own characters
  • Requires huge time commitment and lots of patience

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost everything you could want September 30, 2000
By Kallah
RPG Maker will allow you to create almost anything you want, and it's amazingly easy to use for the most part. Characters, monsters, skills and field maps are surprisingly easy to grasp.
The most complex parts of the game are probably dungeon creation and event/scenario creation. You WILL need to read the manuals (there are two) several times to get the hang of that, but once you do, you will be able to create almost anything your heart desires. Cutscenes, intro scenes, endings (in addition to being able to create ending scenes, the game allows you to set snapshots to be used as a backdrop for the credits), branching storylines or non-linear play - if you have the time and the determination, you can create literally anything in this game.
However, the tilesets (the images you use to create dungeons) are very limited and almost entirely fantasy-based - creating an SF RPG here could be tough, since you can't create tilesets. In addition, the character graphics have the same bias .... Finally, the musical selections are adequate at best. The ability to import music and tilesets would have been a great addition.
But those are relatively minor caveats, and RPG Maker is well worth getting if you want to make your own RPGs.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE AMAZING GAME July 9, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
RPG MAker is an awesome game. Being able to create your own RPG with your own custom graphics, special affects, dungeons, maps, worlds, towns, and people is what makes this game so great,,One thing about it though is the fact that it takes a long time to master the creation skills, this is not for kids, too complicated! Not for someone who expects instant results!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the hideous limitations. November 11, 2000
By Alex
Before you buy this game, ask yourself: why? If your only role-playing experience comes from playing videogames, what you will end up with is a mediocre flop, too much wasted time, and a disappointment. If you are an avid role-player (paper-and-pencil as well as console), writer, and creator, this may just be your chance to see how your favorite creation handles.
Probably the only way to rate a monster like this is by analyzing its limitations and usability. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING YOU CAN MASTER IN A COUPLE OF DAYS, CLOSE YOUR BROWSER BEFORE YOU GET ANY IDEAS ABOUT BUYING THIS ITEM. RPG Maker comes with TWO manuals, with a combined page count of one hundred pages, and even that is barely enough to cover the very basics of this software's mechanics. As the manuals are, they are barely legible and feature minimal graphics. There are no good walkthroughs on the Web to date. You're on your very own.
As for the limitations: get Agetec's slogan out of your mind immediately! Imagination is by far not the only thing that limits your creativity! First of all, your creation must be at least somewhat fantasy-oriented, since all tile-sets, mosters, and pre-made characters are. In the battle engine creation, you are limited to creating spells and skills, and setting the numbers. Other than that, every single one of your RPG Maker creations will feature a run-of-the-mill, turn-based, simplistic battle engine.
The graphics are beyond bad. They are pixilated, static, and bland, just like the ones in a Genesis RPG gone horribly awry. While the music is actually somewhat good, the sound effects are barely tolerable. You do not draw the overworld map. Instead you ASSEMBLE it from the random bits and pieces available. All of the overworld tiles are one color: sepia. Even the water.

5.0 out of 5 stars RPG MAKER IS GREAT! November 6, 2000
By A Customer
First thing I want everyone to know, I am new to RPG games on the Playstation I have done games like MERP and got intrested. So I ordered this, and some others (Final Fantasy Anthology, VII & VIII) Let me tell you, if you have the patience for this game, Buy It, no question, The great idea of a "Maker" series failed at first with "Fighter Maker", don't let that guide you, this deystroys Fighter maker, not only in gameplay, but in structure.
You can create a Serious, well-spent time RPG about some magical quest, or if your in a humorous mood, make one about school, fighting off evil P.E teachers & Lunch aids. Whether your new to RPGs (like me) or have Every RPG made you'll want to check this out, unless of course, you expect to get the full quality of the game in an hour, if you have time and patience, this is well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Imagination comes to life September 29, 2000
How many of you have wanted to make you own RPG? Well Agetec thought that Fighter Maker would be able to simulate it. Well... many fans of fighters loved it, but it did not have really the true feeling of creation. You could customize moves and where the various 3D Models moved and such, but overall it did not have an impact on the whole genre. Well... Agetec has found the real way to do it. Combine all the abilities to set EVERYTHING (and not just the moves and movements like on Fighter Maker) You can even make your own graphics. But beware!!!! This game not only has an INCREDIBLY long learning curve but it takes a REALLY long time to make a high quality, SNES/Genesis quality RPG. You can do anything with a little elbow grease though, and you may want to wait until the release of the PS2 because they will have 8 mb memory cards for a lot of storage capacity. Then you thorough/obsessive compulsive guys that want to make 400 custom graphics, thousands of words, and tons of options, and many other things can make a SNES dream RPG! Not for kids! Too complex and difficult. Not for guys with jobs. Not for guys that have lives! This game takes up WAY to much time. That and the learning curve are the downside. This is much better than fighter maker, but for those of you that liked the amount of options on Fighter maker you will really be able to sink your teeth into RPG maker. (if you like RPGs) RPG fans, get this game, and make up a game of your own! Who knows, maybe someday all videogames will be made with engines like this one! It is a good introduction to overall creation of programs because you learn the general layout of games! Get this if you aspire to make an RPG or just learn about making a videogame!
