If you have any level of any interest in game development, you’ve likely scratched that itch via RPG Maker XP - and if you haven’t, now is your chance to.

Developed by Gotcha Gotcha Games and released all the way back in 2005, RPG Maker XP is a real gem. It does exactly what it says on the tin. The programme helps complete novices craft their own RPG. “RPG Maker lets you create an original role-playing game without any prior specialised knowledge or training,” the synopsis reads. “RPG Maker XP is full of the functions you've been asking for, including game data encryption and a scripting feature that lets you change the very heart of the RPG Maker engine.”

Take a look at the legendary RPG Maker XP in action below.

As pointed out by PC Gamer, RPG Maker XP is responsible for some great releases, including Corpse Party, To the Moon, and Mad Father. I can’t talk about RPG Maker XP though without mentioning Pokémon Uranium. This stellar fan-made release was created using the software, taking players to the Tandor region and featuring eight gym badges to collect, and over 190 Pokémon to catch.

If you’ve got an interest in trying out RPG Maker XP, it’s currently free on Steam. Yes, that’s right. You can download RPG Maker XP for the low price of nothing. This offer runs until 19 February at 6pm GMT so grab it while you can before it’s too late.

If I haven’t already convinced you what a great piece of kit RPG Maker XP is, then just take a glance at the game’s 93% review score. “An entire childhood for free. Thank you for being part of my life,” one review read, while another said, “Made my first RPG on this. Love it so much.” That says all you need to know.
