■What is “Maker series”?


The Maker series are game development software that dates as far back to the 1990s. We released multiple engines fitting different developer needs such as RPGs, Visual Novels, Action Games, and so on.

While the past Maker titles were standalone software, we believe that with Unity's capabilities and our 30 years of experience in making visually forward engines, we can provide an experience that makes the game development process so much easier!

Why February 15th?
*February 15th is quite a special day for RPG Maker series! It’s original Japanese name, “Tkool” (Pron. tsu-koo-ru), sounds close to saying “2, 9, 6” in Japanese. The fan community then added up the last two digits, which is 15, to make “2, 15”, essentially February 15th! Like the Screenshot Saturday in the western community, this is a day where Maker series users would post and share screenshots or updates on what they are making!
