Sweet! I am queuing this up in my Watch Later playlist right now. I watched your first Devlog for the 2nd time last night, with my son. I really enjoyed your talking about other games in that Devlog--not least because of the analysis, and also because although I've heard lots of praise about many of them, I've never played them, and there was one I hadn't heard of too. Do you think you will make a Devlog or a blog post about how you accomplished what you did in RPGMaker? Or could you point to where how you learned how to do it? I *love* the look--the effect--of the hand-painted graphics and I would like to try my hand at the same thing honestly.

Oh wow, thanks so much! That's so sweet to hear you watch is with your son, I'm so honoured haha. I'm glad you enjoy me talking about all these other games as well.

Yep for sure! That's a great topic actually, I think I'll make the next Dev Diary about how I got RPG Maker to look like the way it does.

I used Parallax Mapping and a plugin/script called "TDDP BindPicturesToMap" to combine transparent PNG files together of my drawings. I used this tutorial mostly as reference to get the scripting and technical side working, but this person Photoshops existing RPG Maker tilesets to get the look she wants.

I also wrote a very brief run-down on how I achieved the look through this blog-post, though it is missing a lot of details. There's a lot more to the process of importing drawings and getting them to scale properly, so will document it thoroughly in the next video.
