If you legally own the RPG Maker, yes. But please, do yourself a favor and don't use the default tilesets.

That means the FULL licensed version. (Even if you're giving it away.) and there's another upgrade you need to buy if your game earns over 5000 (Can't remember if this was dollars or Pounds) and this time READ the EULA, it could cost you a lot of time and money if you don't.

I realised it was the full licensed version, also, how much would that upgrade cost, i mean, if i get 5000$ would it be enough?

A part of the RPG Maker VX Ace EULA (http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/support/eula), that states i can publish my game if it's "legally created and does not infringe third party's rights", so if i create my own character, story, scenario, plot, map, music, sound, design, and name (as stated above), i am legally allowed to publish my game on steam greenlight?

There are already RPG maker games in greenlight and I think to the moon is an RPG maker game? if that is so then there are already RPG maker games in the Steam store.

If all the assets, IP, story etc belong to you there is nothing to prevent you from using RPG maker to put it all together and submit it to greenlight.

If you earn over 5000 US$ you won't have to worry about the upgrade costs.

True, I think it's more a cover your ♥♥♥ for tax and legal purposes thing. (the 5k limit is basically the point when the govt says "That's a business, not a hobby"...)

Where did you ever hear that? That isn't the case at all. You might be thinking of another engine.

Ya got me, I've been experimenting with a lot of engines this summer.

If he makes that much, though, it's definitely time to find a lawyer/accountant/whoever handles these things in his country (most places can provide government assistance to do all that)
