UPDATE: This software seems outdated. Take a look here for an alternative… Link and here is the Gamemaker full list

Open RPG Maker is a free and open source 2D RPG creation utility, similar to the popular RPG Maker series. Open RPG Maker is mostly based on RPG Maker 2003, but with some added features, and more advanced usability. This tool will allow users to create 2D RPG games similar to the original Final Fantasy games, such as FF5 and FF6. Though it will also support the creation of games following a Zelda like playability. Unlike the RPG Maker series, Open RPG Maker will have the ability to play more than just midi and wav music files. Open RPG Maker will also be using 32×32 tiles of up to 24bpp, instead of the 16×16 8bpp limit in RPG Maker 2003. Also, Open RPG Maker will support more than just PNG graphics formats.

An interesting project about making Resident Evil 4 as a 2D game. Haven’t tried the game, but from the trailer it seems that the game is in italian language.

Hephaestus – RPG Maker (java)

posted in GAMEMAKER, LINUX, MAC | 1 Comment

Hephaestus is a freeware computer role-playing game construction kit (often called an “RPG maker”). A map editor is included, and scripting is done in the Java programming language. Hephaestus is written in Java, and therefore runs on every platform.

You’ve wanted to make your own computer role-playing game all your life. Hephaestus 2 makes it easier than ever to make any adventure you can imagine. Use your own art and sounds, or use the standard libraries. Make “static” maps with the map editor, or create your maps entirely with code – even making mazes and dungeons that are different every time you play. There’s never been a better time to start writing your own CRPG!

Hephaestus 2 now includes the post-holocaust horror adventure, Umbra! After the Great Old Ones return to reclaim the Earth, the few survivors cower in towns hidden in the wilderness, or have given themselves over to madness and worship of inhuman gods. You start out alone and helpless, but can rise to strike back, and perhaps return Earth to humanity!

Being in Java this works under linux and mac too.
