Why do Japanese RPG Maker games have more of a well-known following than say western RPG Maker games?
Is it because western indies are so full of themselves because they think their game is art or something?
Of course there are exceptions (such as OFF or Lisa the Painful, for example), but it just seems that people are more receptive of games like Wadanohara or Towelket instead of games like bleet's games or Sore Losers.

Their priorities are completely different.
The western dev seems to focus on gameplay and implementing some robust gameplay mechanic, or making the game beautiful and distinct visually.
The jap dev on the other hand, focuses on story and characters. The popular RPG maker games all have story and character as the focus, not anything else. Even if focus was put to make the game appealing visually it's for the sake of characters and not for the sake of the game itself.

I would argue there isn't a correct approach, it's just modern audiences, or at least people who are willing to try RPG maker games lean toward preferring story/characters.

They're not. Towelket is unknown in the west and Wadanohara got popular because of Tumblr.

Takamo's games, Penpals, Pom Gets Wi-Fi, Dreaming Mary, and Your Star were popular for their time. Fleshchild had a big fanbase too.

Interest in RPG Maker games has simply died in general.

RPG Maker is just way more popular in its home country of Japan.

There are barely any western RPG Maker games that aren't memes or fangames. You've got your big ones (Off, Space Funeral, LISA, Hylics, etc.) and you've got a few dedicated creators, like bleet and Takamo. And that's basically it. It's not a popular engine outside of Japan.

You'll see a boom if one of the shitty bigger let's players ever get ahold of it again.

Two really weird games I haven't seen posted here before. Much like games such as Off, Space Funeral, and Middens they are DEFINITELY not for everyone.. or even most people probably. If you do like that type of game these are probably worth a play though.

dude you hit the nail on the head. i loved those games to death! they really are something special and amazing, and i feel jack king spooner is incredible underrated. i adore will you ever return and it's sequel.

have you played hylics by any chance? it's not by him but it's similar in that it's also claymation. i really love that game, hope you do as well!

I agree, jack is so underrated it hurts but i feel like that adds to the charm of his games. each time i play them i feel like im being let in on a little secret that few other people know. will you ever return and its sequels were really good. I really enjoyed mammoth as well.

ive never heard of hylics but thanks for telling me about it, ill check it out sometime.

I've been feeling pretty nostalgic for these weird indie games lately. The last one I got into was Hylics, but I don't think anything's similar has come out lately. I figure the rpgmaker scene's dead.

Ive been trying out Pyrce High as it is seemingly more active
and Ive never seen so many self righteous meme spouting children in one place.
I was the killer one round and after actually making a move, I was killed and scolded for trying to kill someone without setting up the situation(i did hint pretty heavily i was about to harm the person)
then this person explained to me that you shouldnt try to kill certain users???
what the hell is the point then?

To anyone who cares. There's long since been a 'pseudo' remake of Mitadake called Misuterii high. The Tv tropes is pretty outdated, but the game itself tends to dip in and out of being dead and alive.

It's fairly faithful to Mita, with some additions including a pretty good list of actually not trash user made modes.

Like the guy above me, here's the discord to the Misuterii (Which is quite frankly much more alive then that graveyard.)

The first guy was just stating what they thought happened, and I think the second one summed up pretty well why they're angry. You're actively trying to get as many small not-for-profit indie games onto a proprietry platform as possible so you can show off the fact that you like obscure games on your steam profile. That is not okay.

Or maybe because I want a legit way to give the devs money and exposure so more people can play something that gave me joy? You act like Steam's mere existence is the bane of your life.

Well, let's see… 2kki has over 12 years, .flow is going to turn 10 next year. ib is from, what, 2011? What's next, towelket?
If the devs wanted to milk their cow, they would have done so already. It seems for some reason you associate popularity with success and if a game isn't… "available" to the west, then it isn't successful for you (and guess again, the eastern fanbase is x3 or x5 times the western one). If you want to help the developers, spread the word in your blog or among your friends. There's no need for them to be on steam. You don't really think any of the shitty games made in the west would really blast it on freem or any similar platform, right? Also there's the problem of localization, who do you think would translate them? Because the only translations are fan made and only when someone actually decides to sit their ass through the whole process of translating, scripting, testing and debugging. And don't expect japanese people to trust western faggots touching their game, it's happened in the past and hasn't gone well.

These communities have existed and done pretty well without messing with steam, and part of the fun is finding about them by yourself. And actually, people on steam do not appreciate RPGmaker games (and for a good fucking reason, tumblr has been spouting meme games for about 6 years and steam is full of fucking RTP graphics "games"), so don't think people will actually care about them and in fact be ready to see how people bash on the author because the dolphin raped a witch.

To be fair, games like Misao, Mad Father, The Crooked Man, etc, are all from 2012 and they still got re-published on Steam during the last year.
