People always give me a long, confused stare when I tell them @sellingsunlight is being made with RPG Maker, not Unity.
Let me explain you how we're accomplishing this result with such a nimble engine.

First, credit where is due: @Quxios made tons of plugins that will help you improve RPG Maker's look, and you can use them for free even in commercial projects! 💕
We use Qmovement for pixel movement/collision maps, QYscale for the perspective effect and Qsprite for animations.
So, first step: we scan our art assets. Chiara (instagram.com/chiaraboscaro/) paints everything by hand on a single sheet of paper, because that's easier for her.

Let me tell you about the history of #rpgmaker, the underdog of game engines, and how it got its bad reputation.
#indiedev #gamedev
Rpgmaker has been around for over 20 years, and it had been baby's first engine for many young devs.

Rpgmaker was a Japanese-only engine who got ILLEGALLY translated into English by Don Miguel, random Russian dude.
It spread like wildfire.
