Game Master

After over a year of development followed by a closed beta, Version 1.0 of my game was publicly released on 24 December 2014. It was created with the RPG Maker VX Ace and can be downloaded for free. I will continue to support it with bugfixes as necessary.

But what *is* this ‘Game Master’ actually? What to expect? Well …

An adventurous Journey!

Accompany Elsa, a teen-age girl who has just moved to another town with her mother and tries to find out about its history. Set out on an unexpected quest full of mysteries to unravel (which takes about 15 hours and features self-written music). Why does the game board in the woods work only for you? What does the Elder know about it? Who was the Wizard? Does he maybe still exist? And in addition to answering these questions, can you find all the hidden items and secret rooms, too?

Hey, almost done here!

The Agony of Choice!

At the beginning of the game, choose one of two classes with different skills and, here and there, slightly different events taking place in the world. Do you want to get close and personal yourself as a Fighter, dual-wielding your electrified swords, or play the supporter’s role of a Tinker, healing and buffing your allies? It’s up to you!

This might work, I guess?

Powerful Skills!

If only I had a skill that … — hey, wait.

And by the way: If you’re an RPG Maker developer yourself, you might be happy to hear that the project is unencrypted/open-source. Feel free to check how things have been put together and recommend the project to friends.
