Would the free versions of the Unity engine or Game Maker let you do that?

Making a game is something I've been kicking around lately.

No. Game Maker is a phone app. With Unity you could but you'd need a team to build all the assets so it defeats the purpose - unless you could do a KS to build an asset base for unity similar to what you'd find in NWN. That'd be a huge undertaking though. What did it cost and how long did it take for Bioware to get all their immediate assets for NWN made? Same with Cryptic and the new Neverwinter and they already had the Foundry and a lot of assets in place. Still it's take them a few years and many millions so far.


Actually speaking of NWN, if you just wanted to create a CRPG in the NWN style, couldn't you use NWN itself? NWN and NWN2 have a robust toolsets to create indoor and outdoor maps, NPCs, traps, loot, etc. I suppose the downside is that they would not be standalone. You'd only be able to play them with NWN.
