Wow! What an exciting day for RPG Maker MV! There are so many things going on, it is hard to figure out where to even start.

This week is the March MV Midweek Madness! Starting today and ending in 7 days, we’re having a huge RPG Maker MV sale on Steam! So if you haven’t updated to the latest version yet, or you have a friend or family member who you think really needs MV in their life, now is the time to pick it up!

The sale is also a great time to grab some resources to round out your current project, or maybe start a new one, with RPG Maker MV DLC discounts as high as 60%!

But that isn’t all. We didn’t show up just for a sale, we’ve shown up with some awesome updates.

First, RPG Maker MV is now for Linux!

This means you can both use it on our Linux computer to make games, and deploy to Linux for other people to play from PC, Mac, or Linux editions of RPG Maker MV.

This update brings a bigger audience, both for RPG Maker MV, AND for its users. Your games can now be played by more people than ever.

But we didn’t even stop there. We are also introducing RPG Maker MV Tools, DLC that adds new toolsets to the RPG Maker MV editor. We added the MV Tools menu into the latest update, and the first MV Tool, SAKAN -Tileset Builder-, is launching this week.

SAKAN -Tileset Editor- is exactly what it says on the tin. This tool will let you quickly cut together tilesets using pieces of existing tilesets, a whole bunch of extra pieces added in SAKAN, or even possibly make your own.

While it won’t include all the power something like Photoshop does for making tiles, it will make organizing a tileset and making small edits faster than ever before, and right from RPG Maker MV itself, making your workflow simpler and easier.

So all you Linux Users, jump on the sale to pick up the new Linux RPG Maker MV. And everyone be on the lookout for the release of SAKAN, and more tools in the future!

    Woo hoo!
    Wait.. can you still get that RPG maker MV Tools if you don’t use the steam version?

      MV Tools should also release on our home store soon. Apologies for the delay.

    Thank you for releasing on Linux. I have been waiting for this for a long time!!

    • Touchfuzzy

      We have too!

  • Thank you thank you thank you!!! I was hoping that VX Ace would get native Linux binaries, but I guess I’ll have to get by with mkxp. MV is also great, now we’ll be able to get more jRPGs on Linux.

    • Touchfuzzy

      We need more jRPGs everywhere! Never an have enough.
