About This Software

POWERFUL enough for a developer SIMPLE enough for a child VERSATILE enough for any platform!

For years, RPG Maker has been the easiest way to make your own Windows PC Roleplaying game. We have strived to give everyone, regardless of experience or skill level, the tools to make a game they could be proud of. Now, with RPG Maker MV, your game isn't just on Windows PC, its on the move. Make your game on your Windows or OS X PC, and then deploy it for iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, or even to play in a browser using HTML5!


RPG Maker MV can run on both Windows and Mac OS X PCs. Users can also export games for the following platforms:

  • Windows/EXE
  • MacOSX/APP
  • Android/APK
  • iOS/IPA
  • HTML 5 for Web Browsers


RPG Maker MV uses a user-friendly​ map system to help you build the RPG world of your dreams. With an additional automated upper layer, mapping in MV is even easier than before.


In RPG Maker MV, you use the simple, intuitive event system to bring your world to life. You can easily and quickly create NPCs for your characters to interact with, puzzles for them to solve, and quests for them to complete.


RPG Maker MV, like previous RPG Makers, comes with its own graphic and audio resources for you to use in your game. From sprites to battlers, from sound effects to music. MV comes with resources for both Fantasy and Sci-fi games, and you are easily able to add more.


With a tick of a checkbox, you can switch between the classic Front View Battle to a Side View Battle system.


Tired of playing RPG Maker games with your keyboard? With RPG Maker MV, your game will allow the player to play the game with a flick of their mouse, or using a touch screen.


RPG Maker MV can show more than ever before. With a default 1.5x the resolution, sprites can show more emotion and the scenery can be more detailed than ever before.


Want to customize your game even FURTHER? Use plugins to change things the way YOU want them. You can get them from us, get them from other fans, or master JavaScript to make your own! With our new plugin manager, you can just drop in the .js file of a plugin, and then configure it directly in the editor.

Are you serious ? This just went on sale the day after I bought it. Can I get a refund? wait.. oh no I've already spent 9 hours. SERIOUSLY? HAHA YOU THINK IT'S A JOKE RIGHT?,NO! You will never understand my feeling until you are on the same situation with me. D:

Reviews(my anger may affect the reviews):

-Things are easier with JavaScript.
-You can encrypt your game's file (datas like pictures)
-Easily port to other platform(with built-in manual).
-Resolutions are better than the last version. You can freely change the size of the window.
-Built-In Character generator (for newbies)

-It's like the XP,VX ACE Combined and Remastered
-No changes in the events' menu at all
-Everything is pretty much the same without community-made Plugins(for example : Yanfly Stuffs changes the way RPGMAKER Games look like)
-THE PRICE?! NO Why? 50% off the day right after I bought for the FULL PRICE. Are you kidding me? heh

Everyone can use this engine easily. You can make everything ,with the plugin. The changes of the script is really big. Few people knows Ruby but now It's JavaScript which is easier and wider. Easy Interface.
PreMade Maps,Tilesets are good.

I DON'T Recommend this product UNLESS It's on SALE(Just Kidding)
The Product: 8/10(As I said above,It's like the XP,VX ACE Combined and Remastered)
Worth It?: 6/10(Too expensive for kiddos)(If I take my anger on this It would be -10/10)

13/10 Would buy product 1 day before the sale again

I want to say that this really is an amazing game maker it actually has a lot of versatility, and I am very impressed.

A couple things I want to say for people reading this:

If you are the kind of person who starts something and doesn't finish it you probably won't like it.

If you are the kind of person who needs instant gratification, and need there to be action right then you probably won't like it either

For those of you who have no experience in game making like me, you can still make a pretty good game with just a little practice, and there are plenty of guides out there so don't let that stop you. For those of you who have experience game making that helps too.

I also want to say that if you want to make your own graphics for your game though and not use other people's you need to be able to use photoshop well, but I am content to use other people's (There are a lot of people who make graphics for it online)

Overall I highly recommend it.

I first used RPG Maker Vx Ace a year or two ago and I love to use the software. Every graphical aspect of the games you make can be your own, and the features this version includes make it well worth the price. It's awesome to learn how RPGs work (I can explain how most RPGs work to my friends) by using this software. Even if you don't make money from the games you make, it's still a fun time to explore your creativity with RPG Maker MV. It's great to have Mac support, too.

A great easy-to-use game-making program. I preordered this game after putting a good couple hundred hours in VX ACE. They are pretty similar, and they program is pretty new but I have alot of expectations from it in the future. I really liked the Plugin system and side-view battling without scripting. I'm still having alot of fun with this program. Although, it's more of an update, I would still recommend it over VX ACE for the great new features. It's now easier than ever to make the game of your dreams.

This software is amazing. I'm new to this whole game-making thing and I thought I'd buy this because it was on sale.
At first, I was confused and didn't know what to do, so I searched on youtube for tutorials. In the 2 days since I bought this, I now know almost everything. Its really simple and easy to use once you get the hang of it.

Well, I can tell there was ALOT of love put into RPG Maker MV. It's like RPG Maker ACE, but of course, have it's present differences:
1. Javescript instead of RGSS
2. Removed Midi support.
3. A completely new Character generator.
4. Plugins
5. MV lets you change the resolution of your game.

Speaking of the character generator, it's a COMPLETE upgrade from VX Ace. The faces look much better, and the sprites aren't that bad either. Paticularlly, the faces got a real face-lift.

So, with the exception of it's steep price tag, it's just like VX Ace, with some very well placed changes. If you have the money to afford it, it's defintely worth the price.

RPGMaker MV is awesome in so many ways. Although for new gamemakers it might be hard at first to get your head around so many options and things you need to do to get a decent game running. For anyone willing to learn there are so many amazing tutorials on youtube, if you watch them you can really learn how to make a game in minutes (though it probably wouldn't be anything good as it takes time to make good games).

Although right now i only have 24 hours on this software i've learnt so much by watching and testing different mechenisms and right now i am actually starting my first proper game.

10/10 worth every penny i spent

RPG Maker MV is 10$ more than VX, and this is very appropriate, because MV is only slightly better than VX; about 10$ better. But that's not a bad thing. What I mean is, it isn't quite the next evolution in the rpg maker series; almost nothing has changed from vx, but that isn't a problem because vx worked well and there's no point in fixing what isn't broke. So for those who prefer and are familiar with the vx system, you will have no trouble at all adjusting to mv. And if you already have vx, I'll tell you now, I wouldm't worry about getting mv. But if you don't, here's why to consider mv over its predecessor:
1: Plug-In Support: Essentially, now you can mod RPG Maker. (Without having to root through files and perform technical gymnastics). This allows for things such as a "bestiary", a slot machine mini game, and other such add-ons, a suprising number of which freely come packaged with the game (just search through your files)
2: Improved Character Generator: overall better layout and functionality and, more importantly, the artstyle actually matches the base resources.
3: Of lesser importance, more base resources for modern-setting games. (Again, will have to be imported from the dlc files, but they're free)
Negative Points: Minor, but maybe worth consideration: you may prefer the 32-bit gba-era style graphics of vx (which I do); the music is, in my opinion, some of the poorest in the series and, as of now, there is hardly any extra resources for this game, both from the creators and made by fans.

TL;DR: Don't bother if you have VX, but if you want a new RPG Maker, you might as well pay 10 bucks extra for this.

Don't get me wrong, I love this software. According to Steam, I've used it for 1,481 hours. Unfortuantely, it seems that's all I can do for now. I have a Mac, and whenever I launch MV from Steam, it crashes. This, for some reason, has only been happening since the update to the Korean translation (which I don't even use) Whatever happened, please fix it. Until then, I can't recommend this. D:

EDIT: Using Betas to revert to v1.3.0 seems to fix it.

Program crashes doing routine tasks randomly resulting in losing progress constantly. Also "make games for mobile devices" is border line false advertising. It is a pain to even get a file ready for a mobile device and when you do finally get a file properly packaged for mobile devices the rpg maker mv game files are too big to upload to the andriod or apple market. There are also less in game assets supplied with MV than VX ace. The only pros of this is that game files are automatically stand alone .exe files when deployed and the built in side view battle system is nice.

As much as I loved RPG Maker XP and Ace, this one takes the prize. Built in mouse and touch controls, works great at big resolutions, javascript, it's all great. There's so many scripts out there now to flesh out what you want your game to do, and most of them allow for commercial use, so I've found that this is the most powerful and fun RPG Maker to date. Also it comes with a great default set of sci-fi/modern tiles for world map, indoor, and city, which is great too. Buy it. It's worth it.
