Pixel Game Maker MV is going to be the easiest way to make retro games
Bored with your endless Steam library of games? Make your own damn game.
I’m sure you’ve seen them before, old-school RPG games that are using RPG Maker as their engine, clogging up the Steam marketplace and all over sites like Fanatical. With the flexibility of the engine, there are some really creative things you’ll find people have managed to create. The cool folks behind the game are taking their talents to side-scrolling and top-down games now with Pixel Game Maker MV.
Why Early Access? As the developer states on their Steam page,
We plan on gradually updating this tool in accordance with user feedback and suggestions. In its current state it can be used to create simple games, and so we decided to open it up to the public in order to receive and incorporate user feedback as early as possible.
Pixel Game Maker MV is out in Early Access for $89.99 on Steam and already has a couple of demo projects out to give creators an idea of what they can do.
