Welcome to RPG Maker for Teens! This book will help you learn a complete
computer game software application engineered toward creating one particular
game genre: role-playing games!
Role-playing games, also known as RPGs, are those sword-and-sorcery quest
games that feature turn-based combat, inventories full of unique weapons and
armor, and fierce monsters prowling in dungeons.
This book shows you the techniques it takes to make your own RPG ideas come to
This book is written in a tutorial format, so that as you read you don’t just process
information but you put it to immediate use and get hands-on learning to reinforce
the knowledge. Through this book, you will start by creating a game called
Thug Wallow. At the same time, you will put what you’ve learned into practice by
making your own, completely original RPG.
It’s my hope that you will use the skills you learn within this book to springboard
your talents into making dozens of other video games!
