Found this news in Reddit where Jay Barnson has created a simple Role Playing Game(RPG) within a week(40 hours). He didn’t have any big budget or great tools. He used only freely available tools with basic APIs to create the game. His toolset is:
- Gimp 2.0
- MS Paint (which comes with Windows) – for pasting up screen shots grabbed by hitting the PrintScreen key (GiMP doesn’t like these for some reason)
- Free textures available from places like Toob’s Tiled Textures and Mayang’s Free Textures
- Audacity plus a microphone or free sound samples.
This looks like a nice project to be done. I am downloading the game to try it out.
