RPG in a Box is a tool for easily creating 3D grid-based, voxel-style RPGs and adventure games—everything you will need for building and sharing your own game, all packaged together in a box, so to speak! This "box" will contain an assortment of editors (centered around a map editor and a voxel editor) that will allow you to make your game the way you want. I will be striving to make the software user-friendly so that no knowledge of programming, computer graphics, or modelling will be required, all while still maintaining as many customizable aspects as possible so that your game can be unique.
This is a single-person project and I am extremely dedicated to seeing this through to becoming a fully-featured tool. At this point in time, I have some of the base functionality implemented, and I would like to gauge interest from the community and gather feedback and suggestions. Games created with RPG in a Box will always be free to distribute and sell - no strings attached. I would just ask that you send me a link so I can see what you have created with it! I appreciate your interest in RPG in a Box and thanks for visiting my page! Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to know more.
Hello everyone! I decided to go ahead and post an update mid-June since I've collected enough interesting GIFs and screenshots so far. :) I'm still pushing forward on migrating everything over to Godot 3.0 (with the occasional new feature) for the v0.5 release planned for sometime later this year.
One new feature for the Map Editor that should be quite useful is a "Fill" tool for replacing existing tiles with a different type. This will include a "contiguous" option for limiting which tiles are affected.
The "Randomize Rotation" option is now implemented in the new Map Editor as shown below. This isn't a new feature entirely, but it will work along with the new "box" mode (making it easier to get a satisfactory pattern when placing a large area of ground tiles, for example).
The new Voxel Editor now displays a "ground" surface underneath the model by default. This is to help preview light source settings and generally give a better sense of space. The ground can be toggled on and off as desired. The bioprinter model is from lectronice's Phalanstery, a game being developed with RPG in a Box.
I've also been making some improvements to the Script Editor. The most notable is the ability to manually edit a script's source code. Once changes are applied, the visual graph will be automatically updated. Also, support for "while" loops was added to both the currently available version (v0.4.9.18) and v0.5.
I may have briefly mentioned this before, but I will be in v0.5 as your guide if you ever need any help! Simply drag and drop my icon from the top right corner onto a component to open its related documentation if available. Of course, always feel free to contact the real me as well!
This week I've also started building out the new Dialogue Editor - more to come on that in my next update! As with the other editors, I'll be making some improvements as I work through the effort, in particular similar usability improvements that were made to the Script Editor since they share a lot of functionality.
I finally took a bit of time here and there recently to finish up the little desert racing game I was working on (which will be included in the Demo Game Hub soon)! Some of the base assets were originally created for a Getting Started tutorial, but I thought it would be cool to expand it into a small example game where you could race other NPC cars. More on this in my next update, as well! (Click the image below for a larger version.)
Thank you so much for reading and for your continued support! Don't forget to check out the Trello board for RPG in a Box to follow my development progress in real-time!

May's update covers progress on v0.5, including the UI Editors (Theme/Main Menu/Credits), Asset Library, and improved debug console.
