    I would like to get some feedback on something I've been working on. It's called RPG Playground and is basically an online tool to create RPG's. It's still very early in development, but you can now edit levels, save and load them, and share them with other people. You can also start from a shared level from someone else and extend or modify it.

    You can give it a try at http://rpgplayground.com

    Or if you want to start from an already existing level, try http://rpgplayground.com/?prj=50fd87b4180965492e00000b or http://rpgplayground.com/?prj=50fc1ac7180965492e000001.

    I'm working towards a version where you can create a complete (but very limited) game. Next thing on my list to implement is adding NPC's.

    Since you guys and girls are into game development, I would love to hear what you think of it :).

    I've been watching this with interest, and I think you've been doing a good job so far.

    I think it has a good start, but as you pointed out, it has a long way to go before it could be used to make an actual RPG (NPCs, dialog trees, monsters, battles, items/inventory, skill trees & attributes/stats, etc). As far as the tile editor goes, some nice enhancements would be the ability to select a region of tiles and update them all in one click, or create "macros" (a sequence of clicks) so I could drop an entire house or tree in a single click. It would also be nice to edit tile properties (some tiles I picked blocked the tile so the character couldn't walk over it, but I didn't think they should block). And, of course, the ability to import my own artwork is a must.
