RPG Maker Unite launches for PCs worldwide in 2022
Gotcha Gotcha Games has revealed the newest iteration in Kadokawa's RPG Maker series of RPG development software. RPG Maker Unite will be available on PCs worldwide in 2022.
Unite will be the first entry in the RPG Maker franchise to be based on the widely-used Unity engine. But like prior RPG Maker iterations, aspiring RPG creators will be able to use RPG Maker Unite by simply inserting graphical assets and story scripts even without extensive knowledge in coding.
Other than the Unity engine base, RPG Maker Unite will also break more traditions in the series. For example, it will be the first title in a while to not use a two-initial title since the 2004 RPG Maker XP until the most recent RPG Maker MZ in 2020. And while the franchise has been known as RPG Tkool (a portmanteau of Tsukuru [Create] and Tool) in Japan, Kadokawa and Gotcha Gotcha Games have decided to unify the brand into the global title RPG Maker, so this software will be known in Japan as RPG Maker Unite as well.
The Steam page for RPG Maker Unite is available here. You can also find more screenshots and details on the program right below.
