RPG in a Box lets you easily create 3D grid-based, voxel-style RPGs and adventure games! As its name suggests, it will contain every tool necessary for turning your ideas into games, all packaged together "in a box". The software is designed with a beginner-friendly approach as to not require any programming or modelling knowledge while still providing a wide range of customization and openness.
Voxel Editor: Build tiles, objects, and characters from 3D pixel blocks (i.e. voxels) and easily animate them with the editor's frame-based, stop-motion animation system. Importing from MagicaVoxel (.vox) and Qubicle (.qb) is also supported.
Map Editor: Create grid-based worlds with the tiles you've built, then bring them to life by adding interactive NPCs and objects using the editor's intuitive navigation and interaction system.
Visual Scripting: Set up and trigger in-game events with the visual, node-based script editor. Simply drag and drop the desired actions (no programming knowledge required), or manually code "quick scripts" using the custom, Lua-like scripting language.
Dialogue: Write conversations for your NPCs using a visual, flowchart approach similar to that of the script editor. Branching dialogue is supported via player choices and condition checking.
Camera System: Choose from three available camera types for your game: standard, first-person, and isometric. Stage dynamic cutscenes using the engine’s flexible camera scripting system.
UI Customization: Design one or more dialogue box themes and customize the appearance of many other interface elements such as the inventory, main menu, and credits roll.
Basic Items: Define basic items for the player to find in containers or earn through the completion of tasks. Attach scripts to trigger effects for potions and other consumable items.
Sound FX Generator: Generate fun, retro-style sound effects using the built-in tool based on Dr. Petter’s SFXR.
