RPG Maker MV Preorder & Release Date

RPG Maker MV is being released on October 23, 2015.

You can preorder your copy with a 10% discount and two bonus packs: the Cover Art Characters Pack and the MV Essentials Set. Steam or non-Steam keys will be available when RPG Maker MV is officially released.

The preorder cost (with the discount) is a princely $71.99, but to me (based on what I've seen so far) it's worth it!

What Makes RPG Maker MV Exciting

Previous RPG Makers (from 2K to VXA) have been limited to Windows only. However, RPG Maker MV can now be used on both Windows and Mac machines. Not only that, you can also export games you create to Android or iOS, as well as to HTML5 so games can be playable on your websites.

In this video, Stephen Plays showcases some of the features in RPG Maker MV. He was one of the fortunate ones to have a preview version to play with.

The tiles are larger with "intelligent" tile transparency and you can choose between front-view or side-view battles, depending on your preference. RPG Maker MV also comes with a built-in character creator, complete with sprites and facesets, which will be very useful for creating styled characters.

You can view some of the major features in RPG Maker MV on the RPG Maker Web page, which includes a playable demo on the website.

I've preordered my copy already and, although the price may be somewhat high, it's definitely worth it! Being able to create and produce RPG Maker MV games on a wide range of formats is a huge plus! I'm looking forward to RPG Maker MV; I'll activate my copy through Steam, though you can choose to have a non-Steam key if you prefer.

Payday is literally just around the corner (tomorrow actually), so I'll be preordering my own copy of RPG Maker MV. I'm surprisingly excited. And then, of course, it means I have to relearn JavaScript, not necessarily a bad thing.

Hopefully, most likely later in 2016, I'll be giving away Steam keys for RPG Maker MV in the form of a competition. At least that's the plan. Watch this space for details!

Here's your chance to win some FREE Steam keys for RPG Maker VX Ace and some resources!

The RPG Maker Times logo is in need of a redesign; it's been the same for years. So, I thought it would be a cool idea to run a contest to design a new logo appropriate for the site.

Prizes Up For Grabs

First Place
Second Place
Third Place


There are very few rules for this contest, but please make sure you read them carefully to ensure your submission counts!


The judges will be my wife (artistic design), my son (gaming profiling), my good friend and creation partner from Psyche Gamelab (artist/collaborator), and me (designer/blog owner).

Closing Date and Submission

The closing date is October 31, 2015 at midnight UTC. Submissions after this date won't be counted.

Logos can be submitted via the competition's submission form.

Steam Keys Giveaway #1 - Coming Soon

I recently bought Bundle Stars' Game Makers Mega Bundle, so that means I have some extra RPG Maker VX Ace and Game Guru Steam keys (programs and resources) to give away.

Bought the Game Makers Mega Bundle so have some #Steam keys to give out! RPG Maker and Game Guru programs and resources worth $450!

I'm not sure how this'll work yet because there's one key per program or resource. Maybe it'll be in the form of competitions, or it might be in the form of a "first come, first served" basis. More news on this soon.

RPG Maker 2003 Updated to v1.11

The official version of RM2K3 was updated (and released) yesterday. There are a number of bug fixes and some cool and, indeed, welcome additions to the Maker.

You can view some of its main updates (the ones that jump out at me) or the official RM2K3 English Changelog.

Extra Stats v4.0 Released

The Extra Stats v4.0 is finally finished.

The main feature of the ESS v4.0 is a menu system to categorise sections accordingly. It's now available to download and use in your projects if you find it useful. Some stats are still pending - I haven't had the time to code them yet - but it's still fully functional.

I'm not sure when it'll be updated to v5.0 (the final version). It all depends on what happens between now and then.
