I don't think it's a terrible idea to say, as a person with a valued opinion, "Can you give me feedback on your overall experience with this and anything else that will make the nearly completed project better?" I'm Not saying that you shouldn't ask for " feedback on your overall exp...

Read about the rules of fairplay mysteries. If you decide those rules are not for you, decide how to indicate to the readers what rules they should be using instead. Mystery readers will be very angry if they expect a fair mystery and don't get one. THIS, absolutely. The Rules of Fair Play In 1930,...

I had a ton of fun with this game, great job!! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I've come across these Jungian type analysis things-- in one of my lectures, our professor took us through something like this. This was a lot more in depth, though! Great job. Thank you. I first ran across the test while I was...

This game was gorgeous. Thanks to you, I've got to know my thoughts and my mind better. I'm thrilled you enjoyed the game! I thought it would be a few obvious answer questions or "choose from the underneath symbols", so it made quite an impression on me when in the beginning the backgroun...

I'm expected to write four stories for my visual novel, but I'm having a hard time deciding what kind of genre should I choose for my first story. I know this is a weird question, but I need suggestions: -If you were to play my visual novel, would you like the first story to be a sci-fi comedy or a...

I know it's possible to make quizes and games, but instead of "yes/no" questions, I was wondering if it'd be possible to make questions like... "what's your favorite color?" and "what sign are you?" then in the end, have a result based off the choices you make. sorry, ...
