For a long time I have noticed a trend among the developers of Weight Gaming, which is of course making unfinished, low quality RPG-Maker games with default placeholder sprites (which are sometimes edited to include weight gain).
I wanted to know people’s thoughts about it, because I have noticed a tendency for the projects to be kind of dull, containing placeholder sprites (sometimes with expansion edits) and being overall yet another RPG-Maker game that promises innovative, interesting gameplay, but in reality the project dies after a month or two (recently I’ve noticed about 5 dead discord servers in my server list which were related to development of said projects).
I’m not pointing fingers at anyone. RPG games can be good. I know art is terribly hard to make sometimes, but I think I’m not the only one who is tired of seeing the same formula numerous times.
Game development can be very exciting - but sometimes it’s better to hold on until you have something good to show.
