Action-Adventure-Rpg! First go

Hey everyone wanting to create an action adventure RPG based on old school early 90s gameboy games. Have a cool idea for the story of the game and already all planned out on paper from weapons to bosses and the over world map. One major thing after these steps though I'm stuck on what comes next. would really appreciate any and all help. Looking forward to creating this as my first game. Thanks for your help!

Once you have all your ideas written down put them under your pillow at night and in the morning the Game Fairy has replaced it with an .exe file.

If thats does not work your going to have to spend years learning to program, draw, 3d model, animate, sound design and script.

Download Unity thats a good place to start

you should wait for the ios fairy, she puts signed ipas under your pillow.

RPG Maker is alive and kicking, theres at least 3 version out.
It is also now on Steam.

Newest version is pretty cool.

PS... thinking about it more now...
Game Maker Pro might be a better choice.
It works on iOS already.

I think a modern OSX version is coming also.

Hi Fathert!m3_22!
Just wanted to also offer up the notion of concept art. Software environments are obviously crucial to consider, but while you're deciding on those technical aspects (and in some cases, while you're recruiting a team to work with you) going through the process of putting your script into visual form is something you can start on right away. For us, we find more often than not that sitting in front of some concept art will help inform our technical decisions in ways we hadn't anticipated back when we were simply reading the design documents.
Hope that helps, and good hunting my friend!

Blind Albino mixes art, humor, and technology right into the palm of your hand. Enjoy!

One quick question. Can anybody recommend a laptop or computer that is best used for video game software looking for an upgrade. Thanks for the info.
