Because RPGs are one of the hardest and most complex kinds of games to make! I've been making what I thought was a 'simple' RPG with CC and it's taken 3 years and it's still not done!

Zelda isn't exactly simple either even though it's a lot less complex than an RPG. Gauntlet though, seems simple enough. As for the reasons why no one's made a gauntlet type game, who knows? C2 is certainly capable of making one.

It depends how many people with the skills to make one have actually bought the full version of C2. A friend was trying to make one but it's just not going to be possible with the 100 event limit. All the animations and movements were done, but at that point it reached over half of the events allowed in the free version. So it's just not going to happen unfortunately.

That would be my main guess as to why more "complex" games like RPGs aren't being made.Seraphyx2012-04-18 19:11:06

Yeah it has way more obstacles you must overcome, like adequate collision detection, dealing what get's rendered on top of what depending on position (z-sort), more animations on character, etc etc. Even then zelda style games are and forever will be my favorite type of rpg game.

[QUOTE=Joannesalfa] They are actually developing RPG Creator with HTML5 link[/QUOTE]

Who are "they?" French? It looks like a no-brainer if they are selling it for $58, I'll buy it right now.

Construct 2 is absolutely fabulous for a lot of kinds of games, but something like RPG Maker for HTML5 would be great. I want it.

But I'm curious who these strange people are with a vague web site and a French flag at the top. Not that there is anything wrong with the French. They make Little Big Adventure and Arturia Storm.
Check out my HTML5 Firefox OS Game Programming and Game Playing blog at http://firefoxosgaming.blogspot.com/ and my book on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IZUYIGO. I just wrote a post on using Construct for Firefox OS http://firefoxosgaming.blogspot.com/201 ... -game.html.

As Arima says, RPG are one of the most difficult types of games to make, and considering that C2 is almost new and HTML5 is not on its full potencial, it's very risk to try making a RPG with it now.
So you will only see RPGs made with C2 in the future.

I'm making a Zelda fan game with CC, and believe me, it's more difficult to make than an classic RPG, because in a Action RPG everthing works at the same time, there's no turn-based Battle system to simplify, so bugs appear more often.

[QUOTE=Bob Thulfram]Not that there is anything wrong with the French. They make ... Arturia Storm. [/QUOTE]
Wow, that's a blast from the past...Arturia Storm! I bought 1 and 2 from them and was keen on getting 3, but found their support sadly lacking and the DRM they imposed, absolutely dreadful. I had so many problems getting it to authenticate and subsequently run, with little or no help from the devs, I finally gave up and wrote off the money I'd paid. Sad really. It was an amazing product when it worked though. I still have the boxes somewhere in the loft too.
