RPG Maker Unite details changes to battle effects, sample musicListen to four newly composed tracks from the tool's default assets now.
Gotcha Gotcha Games has released new information and GIFs for RPG Maker Unite introducing the role-playing game creation tool changes to battle effects and sample music.
Get the details below.
■ Battle Effects and Music: Elements that Enhance the Main Visuals to Make a Great Game!
When we speak of RPG games, what often comes into our mind are the more visually vivid elements such as the story, character designs, or map designs. However, the battle effects and music are just as important—acting like the icing of a cake, it is the synergy between visuals and audio cues that ultimately contribute to making a great, memorable game!
Thus, this time, we would like to introduce some of the changes we have made to RPG Maker Unite‘s battle effects and music! Also, a portion of RPG Maker Unite‘s soundtracks are now available on our website for you to try out!
■ Users Can Use Either Effekseer or Unity’s Particle System to Make Battle Effects!
In RPG Maker MZ, our most currently available RPG Maker title, battle effects are mostly created from Effekseer, a powerful external application for creating particle effects, and then imported into the engine. Now since RPG Maker Unite runs on the Unity Editor, RPG Maker Unite users can also opt to use Unity’s built-in Particle System to create battle effects from scratch, and import into RPG Maker Unite!
Of course, battle effects made externally using Effekseer can still be imported as was in RPG Maker MZ. Users can choose which solution they prefer to work on and can freely choose what to assign in their game!
Below are some samples battle effects available in RPG Maker Unite‘s default asset library:
With RPG Maker Unite‘s native resolution being upscaled to full high-definition, this certainly is exciting news for creators who wish to make their battles more visually engaging than ever!
■ Try Out RPG Maker Unite‘s Sample Music!
Four newly composed music tracks from RPG Maker Unite‘s default assets are now available on our official website for you to try! Four track themes are available: Town, Dungeon, Battle, and Event.
In addition, thanks to the Unity Editor’s design, in addition to .ogg audio formats, RPG Maker Unite can now also incorporate WAV format music files.
RPG Maker Unite is due out for PC via Steam and Unity Asset Store in 2022 worldwide.
