Pushing RPG Maker Around

There's an interesting new title out called Sinners - Truth Be Told - while it's actually an RPGM game, it *looks* more like an Adventure Game Studio game. Hand-drawn backgrounds, big-sized sprites instead of anime chibis, battle animations... Only the menus look like the RPGM standard. It's nice to see what you can do with the system if you try.

(Of course, the same people who pick on me about graphical mismatch will probably complain that the pixelated characters and objects don't really match the backgrounds. Hand-drawn animations would be NICE but probably a little out of budget?)

Anyway, if you like the classic RPGs but are tired of the recent crop of all-very-similar RPGM games out there, have a look.
