Hey there, I’ve been spriting since late 1999 and I’m looking for a good
2d game engine, basically I only want to create Rpg’s, I’ve looked
around but I haven’t found anything, any recommendations?

What platform, programming language, etc?
look up RPGMAKER 2007, it makes japanese style rpgs, if you like that
im not sure what its like now, each new version they put a new spin on
it comes with alot of graphics with it, but you can make your own
artform if your planning on doing all the graphics yourself.
But making your game act different from other peoples is tricky, you
have to bend the rules of the game with what they give you, sorta like
a doom 1 mod.
monjardin: I was thinking starting out with a C# like language or
python will do just fine, I use Windows XP. I want to be able to have
freedom.. I’ve used Rm2k3(rpg maker 2003) and Rm2k for 6 years and Game
maker for 2 years so I’m not new to game development(well.. not prof but
in the sense).
If Python is you bag, take a look at
vbGORE is an open source, free MMORPG engine developed in Visual Basic 6
that has been in heavy development for over a year. It supports multiple
connections with great speed with support over as many servers as you
want. The server offers a lot of security from countless lines of packet
integrity checking to streaming packet encryption, using a MySQL
database to hold information. The client uses DirectX 8 to offer
powerful 2d graphic support and manipulation with effects from
alphablending, lighting and rotations to even a custom particle engine.
Version 1.0.11 released
Looks cool, to bad it’s for MMO’s.
Oh, well you never said you didn’t or did want an MMO engine. I’m
I heard Ika used python but whats better, Ika or Pygame?
I’ve never heard of Ika, but PyGame is an API wrapper for the Simple
Directmedia Layer for Python. You’ll have to
code your game pretty much from scratch with it but it gets the job done
A quick google search for Ika reveals that it is a full-fledged RPG
engine. You won’t have to code as much but if you do you’ll likely get
PyGame will work on Linux and Mac without modification if written
correctly. I’m not so sure about Ika.
