We have visited RPG in a Box a couple times in the past, it’s an all in one ‘RPGMaker’ style complete game engine for creating Voxel style RPG games… and you can get it completely free. On Dec 1st, 2022 through December 7th, RPG in a Box is one of the featured free games on the Epic Game Store.
RPG In a Box Description:
RPG in a Box lets you easily turn your stories and ideas into games and other interactive experiences! As its name suggests, it contains everything necessary for doing so, all packaged together “in a box”. The software is designed with a fun, beginner-friendly approach in mind as to not require any programming or modelling knowledge, while still providing a wide range of customization and openness. You can export your game to a standalone format for Windows, Linux, and MacOS, allowing others to play it without needing to own RPG in a Box!
Build tiles, objects, and characters from 3D pixel blocks (i.e. voxels) and easily animate them with the editor’s frame-based, stop-motion animation system. Importing from MagicaVoxel (.vox), Qubicle (.qb) and PNG files is also supported.
Create grid-based worlds with the tiles you’ve built, then bring them to life by adding interactive NPCs and objects using the editor’s intuitive navigation and interaction system.
Set up and trigger in-game events with the visual, node-based script editor. Simply drag and drop the desired actions (no programming knowledge required), or manually code “quick scripts” using Bauxite, the custom, Lua-like scripting language.
Choose from three available camera presets (standard, isometric, and first-person) or tweak the settings to create a custom camera. Stage dynamic cutscenes for your game using the engine’s flexible camera scripting system.
Choose from tactical turn-based, real-time, or menu-driven turn-based combat, with more options and customization to come in future updates.
RPG In a Box is built on top of the popular open source Godot game engine and is a great beginner friendly “all in one” tool for creating voxel based role playing games. You can learn more about RPG in a Box and getting it for free in the video below.
