  • You can freely control detailed settings of the camerawork during battles. Small changes to the angles and movements of the camera can result in a significant increase in the originality of the game.
  • 3D maps created through the "map editor" can be set as the background during battles. In addition to particle effects, such as rain, snow, and flames, all data available as event graphics can be implemented, allowing you to create lively battle scenes.

Customize Your Original Icon for Your game!

For the creation of games that will be distributed, we have added a feature that allows players to use an original icon. The icon for game data for use by the public can be changed from the default icon to an original icon specified by the user. By simply selecting the icon data of choice, icons of each size will be created automatically. The painstakingly-created world view of the game can be easily reflected in the icon.
