Dungeon Maker

Dungeon Maker video game Developed by Brian De La Franier and published by Tavarin Games

Developed by Brian De La Franier and published by Tavarin Games

Dungeon Maker is a multiplayer applicationgame to bring your tabletop fantasy role-playing online. Dungeon Maker is designed to work best with the Dungeons and Dragons e ruleset, though no content from DnD is included with the game.

With Dungeon Maker you can design Characters, Enemies, and NPCs, and set their portraits which will be shared to all players in the game.

Dungeon masters can use the Campaign Designer to create a world map for your campaign, and host this campaign to any players without having to have players download the maps.

A continually evolving and robust Map Maker will let you create encounters and areas for your players to explore. These maps and encounters are hosted purely by the Dungeon master, so anyone can join without downlaoding the campaign.

Campaigns are hosted over the internet by IP, or locally on a LAN. Let your play group join you from anywhere. A video tutorial for multiplayer IP can be found on the Tavarin Games YouTube channel:

can see the world, interact with NPCs and enemies, and roleplay to their heart's content.

Dungeon Masters can switch between maps and encounters, control enemies and NPCs, move players, and control the game.

Rising of the Moon - Part

Rising of the Moon - Part video game Developed by Valyutechnik and published by Valyutechnik

Developed by Valyutechnik and published by Valyutechnik

A fun, story rich RPG for those who want some challenge.

Do you really love potato?

Do you hate flowers or ragweed?

Do you like throwing away priceless artifacts?

Do you like trying to beat that boss again after the th time?

Does your life sorely lack a game where you can choose which plate of chicken is the least burnt inbetween beating up enemies?

When you see someone trying to steal, do you ponder if you should teach them a lifelong wisdom or just punch the living hell out of them?

If you answered Yes to any of these, this RPG is the game for you!

Rising of the Moon - Part is all about these, and more.

Join the story of Robert, the stoic warrior with PTSD, Ben, the buff, aggressive but friendly sailor, and Lorien, the hot-headed mage girl with reckless behaviour and acute pyromania.

Take part in decisions, which either shape the current story, or have far-reaching consequences at the ending. Also, feel free to try out all the choices, after all, we didn't work for you to only see half of the game!

Our bossfights always have a unique element which you need to figure out, else they are quite hard to beat, though not impossible. Except for the first boss, that one's easier since we wanted to lull you all into a false sense of security. Wait...

While the game is sort of linear, the three areas of the game all have lots of characters who you can interact with. Especially the last one, that city's so big you'll probably get lost in it at first. Which is okay, since we stuffed it full of interesting stuff.

If you have any suggestions or criticism, feel free to post in our Discussion Forum! Go easy on us though, this is our first proper game. Coming soon to Steam in English!

Hungarian language update is coming in January th at the latest.

Minor balance changes and some extra finishing touches on the Hungarian language contents still coming in a couple days.

Also, for suggestions, or if you just loved the game, feel free to check out our Discord server for the game!

Escaped Chasm

Escaped Chasm video game by temmie

Made by temmie

Asmall little RPGmaker game about a lonely girl with a connection to another world that she sees in her dreams.


May contain some loud and prolongedlowhigh pitchmoments and unsettling atmosphereelements. May also contain some flashing lights moments!!

Tem here!!!It's my first time making an RPGmaker game!! Its my first time trying to put together my own project outside of an animated thing (though... I guess this is still sort of.. that..). I've always wanted to make an RPGMaker game, though I guess it isn't much of a game. Its around - minutes long (though I guess it could be longer if you try to get all the endings).

There's around different endings you can get.

Asmall warning that one of the endings is a little creepyunsettling.. But hopefully its not too much. Also... occasionally a movie might freeze... I'm not really sure what causes this, if it happens, try restarting the game. I'm sorry if this happens :( It seems like this has been working for some people as a fix, so you could give it a try!you for stopping by!! I hope you like it!! I'll try to make more one day.

Hopefully I set up the downloading option right where you don't have to pay for it. But feel free to donate if you'd like to support me!!

Myoubouh Catcher video game Developed by Myoubouh Corp and published by Myoubouh Corp

Developed by Myoubouh Corp and published by Myoubouh Corp

In Myoubouh Catcher play as the young Namobouh of the proud people of Myoubouh.

Join Namobouh on this adventure and hunt fireflies, to put them as much as possible in a safe place, because you know, outside the village, the danger is everywhere !

Particularity of this adventure ? Myoubouh are peaceful beings, so it is very difficult for them to eliminate an enemy !

The Myoubouh's mainly use bows with arrows that have soporific properties and wich project enemies backwards. We must therefore think about the position of enemies before shooting and put them asleep, because they can be real alive enigmas so solve ! The worst thing about this story is that fireflies often like to stay in warm place, close to dangerous Namobouh's enemies. Myoubouh Catcher life's are comlicated, no ?

A game of adventure, action, observation and reflection, where even enemies can become small puzzles to solve.

More than fireflies to find !

Explore mysterious caves, dig holes with a pickaxe, blow cracks thanks to Klakaboums and more !

Collaborate directly with the Myoubouh elder in person, and enjoy a good dose of funny moments.

An easy mode to enjoy a more accessible gaming experience is available.
