Rxcovery is an RPG about a hospital patient with only 30 minutes left on life support. Players explore a hospital full of monsters in order to raise enough money to save their character's life. It's a tense combination of turn-based combat and maze-like level design.

"Welcome player. It's a fucking video game. Get your stats ready," Absolutely: A True Crime Story begins. Then it asks you to boost one of your starting character's stats like strength, dexterity, or something called J3V. None of these stats matter: the browser game is just a random, nihilistic parody.

In the past, I've thought a little about making a game, but never got around to learning actual coding. Recently, I've started to develop that abstract "what if" idea into a passion project of my own. I'm learning how to create maps, program quests, and write cutscenes with the help of a program that can build RPGs. Through this process, I've encountered a variety of challenges that have helped me appreciate games so much more now.
Some of the people who make Pokemon fan games are scared, if not a bit angry.

Today a reader sent me an email about this new contest for RPG Maker games, and I wish I had time to play them all. I mean, sure, RPG Maker games aren't always... polished, but there are some good ones out there, like Exit Fate and Barkley's Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden. They're almost always free, and if you do enough digging, you can find some really cool indie RPGs out there.
