RPG Maker 2003
RM2K3The RPG Maker series has been one of the easiest to use RPG development platforms for the PC, but had never really gained much recognition in America. This is largely the result of ASCII/Enterbrain ignoring U.S. releases, and allowing only pirated versions of the software to reach outside of Japan.
RPG Maker 2003 was the third role playing game creator in this series. As of 2003, game development and publishing only included the name Enterbrain, not ASCII. RPG Maker 2003, however, provided only one substantial change over the RPG Maker 2000 version, which made battles feature a third person view. Most substantial advancements were in RPG Maker XP.
