I have been ware of this line of software for something like 10 years. Initially, I always kind of thought of it as a joke, but that had more to do with my own inscecurities than any short coming of the software. I knew HTML/CSS when I first played, with a little JS. Since then I have played and learned and used C/C++ as well as PHP and Programming (Arduino!) and various other languages from time to time... but during all that I had this little seed of an idea I had stewed on for years, a game that was always thought of as a 2d RPG... And well here I am back to the original software that planted that seed of an idea and I can easily say that if your vision is some sort of SNES style RPG you have found your software. Don't waste your time reinventing the wheel. You have found what you need.

The main menu functions make it easy enough for a non-programmer to make a decent RPG. The RUBY
script functionality allows a programmer to completely change every part of RPG Maker and make an RPG game that they always wanted.

An excellent RPG design engine! Even newer game designers or others within the game-making trade should have an easy time using this! Great way to play around with things within a game and learn new stuff as well!

*10/10!

Fixed Script Event command from older (non-Steam?) versions. It is now possible to enter non-elementary scripts into the Event Command. This alone (given that not many changes have been made to the engine overall in its updates) makes the Steam version of VXA a good version to own.
