RPG Maker (AKA: RPG Tsukūru, RPGツクール, RPG Tkool) is the most popular 2D RPG games development engine developed by Enterbrain company from Japan. It’s both simple enough for a child and powerful enough for a developer. The whole series mainly includes: RPG Maker 2000, RPG Maker 2003, RPG Maker XP, RPG Maker VX, RPG Maker VX Ace, and RPG Maker MV.

As an excellent game maker since 1992, RPG Maker can make any users without programming skills be able to create exquisite and professional role playing games with ease. This thanks to its low-threshold and easy-to-use visual user interface. Although it has been more than ten years since this software was available, it still enjoys high reputation in the field of developing personal independent RPG games. RPG Maker does not require advanced programming basis at all. As long as you can learn how to use it carefully, and have a certain logic thinking ability, then you will soon be able to start your original game design. All in all, whether you are now engaged in game industry or just a amateur game maker, you can always feel its unique charm.

RPG Maker MV is currently the latest edition in the whole series with the most powerful functions and the most comprehensive coverage, launched at the end of 2015. Compared to its previous editions, it supports a variety of platforms (Windows, Mac OS X, HTML5, Android, iOS, and more), added new support to SideView combat mode, supports touch control and mouse control at the same time, improves significantly the maximum of props database, gives automatic three-level maps, uses simpler JavaScript language for scripts library, supports testing and playing a game in high resolution, and so on.
