    I'm sorry if this is not the right section. Please move or delete this thread if it's deem as a violation.

    I recently made a RPG starter kit for all iOS devices that have a battle engine, over world, text box, storyline, particle effect, bgm, royalty-free art, multiple levels, parallax, and way more. How much would you pay to get this starter kit? With the starter kit, you can have a full-fledge RPG games with bare minimum knowledge of how to program. For more advance user, you can have a head start and expand it later on. Heck you can publish the game as-is on the app store.

    I was saying "Just like RPG Maker" in my head while reading every line of this, but then I saw "publish as-is on the app store" and went O.O

    Edit the post to include "iOS." BTW, you're in the iPhone forum, so RPG maker doesn't make sense.

    Can you provide me a link to the rpg maker?

    And any suggestion on the price?

    Edit: It took me 1000+ hours to make this kit. And even now, I'm still expanding it.

    Based on your hard work and features. $200-400 sounds like a good range. It'd be cool for you to put together a video of something in action though. ;)

    On iOS? Nothing, even if I made the RPG I would need a dev account on the appstore to publish it, and that's 100 bucks right there.

    Is that for Android? Hm... strange that I never heard of it before today. Thanks for the link. :)
    Yeah, tileset is possible. The starter kit won't be limited to generic RPG or pixelated small tile sets, but it will be possible to create something like TWEWY. This is the same engine I'm using to create my own version of TWEWY. See my other posts on the site for more info.


    Coming soon is all I can say. I'm just curious with other people insight on price. I need to add some new feature here and there before some new video.


    You can jailbreak and install the unsigned app if you are creating the game for fun.

    You gotta be reasonable with the price as well if its too high no-one will buy it, I would say a fair price would be $20-$30, even if it personally is worth more.

    Outta curiousity though, need a beta tester, im game to give it a go

    The cheapest starter kit on the market is $49, and those are down-right horrible. I might sell a limited version of the kit at a budget price.

    I'm interested in a beta tester. What iDevices do you have? Have you beta test in the past before? Do you have any experience in programming?

    I've beta'd some DS homebrew, I own a 3GS, 4 and a 4S but nothing on the programming front.

    As for the price, didn't realise if the shittest are $49 and yours is alot better then about $75-$100, I would def release it at a lower point to start of with though, like a intro price, ya know just to get the name out there


    EDIT: I say $75-$100 as im not very familiar with the market,

    Lol. :lol:
    It's a figure of speech in which a contradictory term appear in conjunction. For example: brawling love, loving hate, hot ice, cold fire. You wished me luck, but yet the phrase used in the movie, Hunger Games, were ironically and likely used to send them to their miserable death since there was only a rough .08% of winning the games.
