Okay, I want to make a game for a school project, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I was thinking something like an RPG-like game. Any RPG game makers that will run on a MacBook Pro? Thanks.

If you want to make an RPG, and it's a school project, I'm sure you want a simple, affordable product.

Check out Spiderweb Software, and specifically Blades of Avernum. $25.

Look for the Scenario Editor

You can download and use Unity (http://www.unity3d.com) free for a month.

I have Warcraft 3 which I want to put models on but the model program I have doesn't seem to do anything but show the model i've aquired through the game. Can someone please recommend a model editor that is for begginers and has a guide(or doesnt need one because it's so easy) that I can use?

You might need Frozen Throne or updates for it to work though. How those other people got the game to register the model I don't know. (in response to Sdashiki)

Making games on a mac is easy, cause the system teaches you to master all computers.
