    RPG Maker XP will let you create a simple RPG very quickly as long as you use the default systems and graphics. If you want to use your own graphics its relativly simple you just need to create them ...

    This is a very fun program, and anyone who wants to make any type of RPG should give it a try.

    Better than RPG Maker 2003

    Rated on September 25, 2006 by TreCoolFan

    RPGMXP is the best in the series. It's simpler than RPGM3 and more fun than RPGM2003. But the trailer isn't really true because the game isn't as simple as the trailer says. You still don't need progr...

    This is not really a game, but it is a tool that will easily allow you to make your own game. RPG Maker XP does a great job of letting you make you game how you want it to be. To be quite honest, ...
