    RPG Maker VX

    RPG Maker VX allows users without programming background to create their own role-playing games. RPG Maker VX is developed by Enterbrain and can be purchased online on the official website for 59.99$.

    As great as the software is, there is very little information available in the help file to help newcomers create their game from scratch. The purpose of this series of article is to provide new art as well as tutorials to new users so that they can start creating their game with as little trouble as possible.

    RPG Maker VX: Great Character Set

    The RPG Maker Resource showcase for today is the blog 「適当(てきとう)ツクール」 maintained by mikata。The blog was selected not only because it provided great quality art but also because the user’s creation have a unique look and feel to them which is truly unusual in RPG Maker games.

    As usual, resources are not provided directly in the article but links have been provided in order to allow readers to quickly download the art they’re looking for.

    It is always courteous to credit the authors whenever using the art they’ve created. Most users forbid their art to be used for commercial purposes so it’s always a good idea to get in touch with them first before using other people’s art for business ventures.

    Here’s is a sample of the great character sets which can be found on「適当ツクール」。
