Programming is not a required skill! All necessary materials are included such as character, graphics, music and more. Now, all you need is your creativity! This program is very similar with Other Rpg maker programs. if you know what Rpg maker is you will love it because this program doesn't require any programming knowledge. Also it's very easy to learn you can create your prototype game within a day.

Royalty free and easy to use. A lot of great indie games are made with this engine by expert game devs and novices alike.

EasyRPG and RPG Paper Maker provide a Free and Open Source alternative. They're a little bit buggy right now, but the staff treats both new members and veterans with the respect they deserve. This is especially great, if you don't have a lot of money to go around.

Had a huge crush until Rpg Maker 2003 version. It was my game development companion for ages... But everything changed when the fire nat... I mean, when RMXP arrived.

How can you make your game public? As in actually, sell it to people. I want to make a game like OFF, Deltarune, or Undertale, and I noticed that they all have either Steam or their own website. How do you put it up there? I just wish RPGBoss was available.
