Hi, I’m Justin! I’m a solo developer pursuing my dream of creating a fun, easy-to-learn tool for making games and other interactive experiences. My hope is that RPG in a Box will allow anyone to bring a story or idea to life regardless of skill level or age!
As its name suggests, it contains everything necessary for doing so, all packaged together “in a box”. The software is designed with a fun, beginner-friendly approach in mind as to not require any programming or modelling knowledge, while still providing a wide range of customization and openness. You can export your game to a standalone format for Windows, Linux, and MacOS, allowing others to play it without needing to own RPG in a Box! A free demo version is available on both Steam and itch.io.
Even though RPG in a Box reached v1.0 and left Early Access on May 10th, I still have many more ideas in store for it. However, I’m now at a point where additional funding and visibility is needed in order to continue full-time development of RPG in a Box. The funding raised from this campaign will allow me to continue developing RPG in a Box beyond 1.0, specifically to expand and improve upon existing features and to pursue the long-term goals that I have for the tool.
As a token of appreciation and to give something back to those supporting this campaign, each perk comes with one or more digital rewards, including your name being listed in the software’s credits, a copy of RPG in a Box, or even a custom tile, object, or character of your choosing. I’m very happy to say that my wonderful wife, Sarah, has graciously offered to create and customize these models, which are offered as part of the perks at the $50 level and above and as add-ons! Perks at the $30 level and above include a Steam key for RPG in a Box. All perks include having your name listed in the software’s credits (if desired), with higher tiers being listed higher in the credits.
Your support means so much! Every little bit helps and will go a long way towards allowing me to continue pursuing my dream and fulfilling the vision I have for RPG in a Box. If you’d like to know more about RPG in a Box or this campaign, feel free to do so via the comments, direct message, or social media (links below). I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have!

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped support RPG in a Box in any way up to this point and to everyone who will do so going forward! I truly appreciate your help in bringing RPG in a Box to the world. I believe that RPG in a Box can be a means of creative expression for everyone!

While the below list of features lies outside the scope of this campaign, reaching the funding goal would be a huge step forward and bring these closer into sight. I thought it would be beneficial to provide a high-level look at what I plan to implement into RPG in a Box in the longer term if I am able to continue developing it full-time.
