“Starborn: The Fallen” (SMILE GAME BUILDER Game) – Video Showcase #1

Starborn: The Fallen (A Smile Game Builder Game)

The game I’m working on for SMILE GAME BUILDER – for those who don’t already know – is entitled Starborn: The Fallen.

Its current game dev home (for now) is on Gamejolt. You can follow the project there if you want to keep up-to-date with its progress and development.

Showcase Video

Here’s a game dev showcase video for the game’s intro scene.

The video is hosted on DailyMotion, but you can also view the YouTube version if you prefer.

Game Development Notes

Game development will continue with fleshing out the story first before focusing on graphics, 3D models and animations, so will use many default models for now. Over time, I’ll add more custom assets (including models) and will showcase them in future videos.

Smile Game Builder - Top 5 Games
Posted in SGB Games

COMING SOON! Top 5 Smile Game Builder Games.

Smile Game Builder has been out for some time now. So, it’s inevitable that there would be a number of games available for it.

Sometime next week, I’ll be showcasing some of the games currently available in Smile Game Builder. This includes both free and paid games. These are all in English since I don’t speak Japanese, but a number of Japanese only games have been produced as well.

None of the games in the showcase is a full review; it’s simply a video providing details on the games, which I’ve ranked according to atmosphere, playability, storyline, and enjoyment.

I won’t spoil the "surprise" by listing the games; you’ll just have to watch the video when it’s uploaded.

Smile Game Builder Tutorial #37:
Customizing Assets
Message Windows

In this week’s tutorial, I give some insight into customizing more of the system graphics in Smile Game Builder, specifically message windows. This includes normal message windows, dialogue windows and the status window.

Video Tutorial

Message windows are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to customizing system assets. In Tutorial #30, I covered graphics not directly importable via Add Assets. They are the Game Over image, equipment items (status screen) and message wait cursor (animated).

Branneg Guthinol

Also mentioned in this tutorial is Branneg Guthinol, an ex-gladiator grown fat from his successes. He will be a character in a game planned RPG Maker MV game, The Gladiator Program: Genesis (some time in the future).
