Make the Next Final Fantasy
Have you ever wanted to make your own RPG? Well then Humble Bundle is offering the chance with the Humble Software Bundle: RPG Maker Returns, giving you access to the program and many different add-ons.
Like most bundles, this one is split into tiers. The first tier starts at $1 and includes two different RPG maker programs: 2008's RPG Maker VX and RPG Maker 2000, which originally came out in Japan in 2000 as you may expect from the title, but didn't get officially translated to English until 2015. Both programs can be used to make a variety of RPGs. You'll also get Game Character Hub: Portfolio Edition, which you can use to make sprites for both RPG Maker and other 2D games. Additionally you'll get two pieces of DLC for Game Character Hub with Game Character Hub PE: DS Generator Parts and Game Character Hub PE: Second Story. Like many Humble Bundles, you'll also get a 10% coupon for your first month of Humble Monthly.
The second tier is going for $8 and includes two more versions of RPG Maker. You'll get RPG Maker XP, which came out in 2005 and is actually the engine that To The Moon runs on, and RPG Maker 2003 which, like 2000 before it, originally came out in 2003 in Japan but didn't get an official translation until 2015.
At the $15 tier you only get one new piece of software with RPG Maker VX Ace. Released in 2012, this is an updated version of VX, and offers up all new options to help customize your RPG the way you want. Additionally, you'll get the following add-ons for the software:
- Samurai Resource Pack
- DS Resource Pack
- DS+ Resource Pack
- 8-Bit Fantasy RPG Tracks Vol. 1
- Modern Music Mega-Pack
- Samurai Force 8-bit Tracks Vol. 1
Finally there's the fourth $50 tier, which nabs you a couple other pieces of software. You'll get RPG Maker MV, the most recent entry to the series that came out in 2015. You'll also get Visual Novel Maker + Live 2D, just in case you were interested in a totally different genre of video games. Naturally, this tier also comes with another host of add-ons.
- Magical School Music Pack
- Japanese School Girls Vol. 1
- Frontier Works: Futuristic Heroes and BGM
