Promising Games of 2008
By: Ixzion | Published: December 10, 2007 22:00 pm | RPG Maker


As we get nearer to 2008, we can look back and notice that there wasn't especially much output from the RPG Maker community. Well, at least in the thought of full game releases.

While you might think that it would be the waning interest in RPG Maker, I believe you would be incorrect. I would say that we're going to see a nice boom in RPG Maker releases next year.

Don't believe me? Why don't you check out this list of promising games for 2008?

Hit Me Up - Dev: Zane Deadreich
Genre - Fantasy
System - RPG Maker 3
Rating - Teen
Contains strong language which may offend some.
Adult oriented innuendos.
Not recommended to anyone with little to dry senses of humor; it is tongue in cheek and satirical.

Synopsis - A fantasy realm where all is not as it would seem, and that which seems to be what it is, is also to be taken with a grain of salt. This particular story revolves around an unlikely group of 10 Mercenaries who set out to make a profit through the trials and tribulations of their hard work including posting up flyers to get themselves some recognition, the arduous hours of finding a teammate's missing brain, as well as much not-yet-written toilet humor ready to be unleashed upon the unsuspecting heroes as they stumble their way into your playstation 2 & 3 consoles and break a few records with having certain words included in the
dialogue more times than a Quentin Tarantino film. Get out your goggles, this ride is only going to get more messy the further into it you go.

Target release date - April - June 08

Holy-Chaos: Prophecies Unleashed - Dev: Lausen
System: RPGM3
Rating: Teen

Synopsis - 400 years before the game actually takes place the planet was filled with wondrous technologies.
It showed in every aspect of life from towns to military even the jobs people preformed.The different empires lived together in harmony, until one empire decided to use
technology to make powerful weapons of war. The others had no choice but to fight back. The war lasted years with no end in sight. Then an unexpected chain of natural disasters wiped out everything. All technology was lost in the chaos. The world's population was greatly decreased.

The Prophecy reads: In the years to come an epic discovery will be made. It will lead to countless battles and a great war will be fought. This discovery will be strong enough to combat the great city. The old will hide in fear and the young will pick up arms and fight for their futures. The world already in this depressed
state will begin to decay and chip away. The body count will only keep rising. Death will be the only escape. The war will continue endlessly until the chosen one rises up to except their fate. A mirage of the past will purify the
planet one way or another In the end much will fall.

Target release date - 2008
