Re: the Evolution of Adventure Games

I'd second that, it does look like a history lesson...one that left out the fun of microwaving hamsters... :(

Re: general question for the artists among us...

Personally, I think the artists, like most people, would probably appreciate being more a part of the process rather than a step in assembly line. If an artist is shaping how the world and characters appear but doesn't have any influence on the story I think that would limit their interest, unless o...

Re: Fantasia, Realm of Darkness. New Art...!

Tons of endings make for fun, no one is forced to collect them all so I don't see why anyone would complain.

Re: Commercial Worthy Visual Novel

I think several Ren'py games easily approach commercial quality, O3 for instance...the differing factor is that they are not as long as a commercial game.

Re: Upgrading from phpbb2 to phpbb3

I would concur with Py'Tom, my upgrade to Olympus went smoothly aside from issues related to various hacks I had implemented. Unforunately, my host then corrupted my database and somehow managed to block ftp traffic...but the intial upgrade itself went smoothly and we'll see how the transfer to a ne...

Re: Deji's PSD Doll - "Celeste" Beta Version

Very nicely done. I'd say one of the highest quality dolls to be open to the public domain. :)

I'm trying to use my own visuals, which are much lower quality, else I'd definately put her to use. :P

Thanks for the excellent contribution!

Re: Question about games (not sure if it's in the right section)

While I like length, I find detail much more interesting. I'd take a short game with 8 endings over a long game with 2 anyday. Ideally, a long game with many branching paths and endings would be great, but...that's a bit harder to pull off.

Re: All-Ages Themes / Topics

I read some time ago in the Elven Relations thread someone commenting on how nice it was to have a game where you could live in the world without the story being centered on some violent climax. This made me ponder making at some point a game in the vein of Kiki's Delivery Service...not the same plo...

Re: Best pen? (and other questions)

I use inkscape, it crushes any other vector program I've used...even Illustrator CS2, though I haven't got my hands on CS3 yet. I'm messing around with coloring in GIMP after linearting with Inkscape but the results aren't great, mostly because I hate shading.

Re: Cyber Troops (vol.1) released

I'd download it and give it a try...but I' m one of those poor saps the others in this thread were talking about. 110 MB would take me all day to download, if even a whole day was enough. Since I get my internet through internet shops and cafes rather than at home, it's not really an option. :/ Coul...

Re: Clickable map

I'm not positive, but I couldn't see why you couldn't place images in a folder as long as you updated the file address... folder/image.jpg as opposed to image.jpg But I've not tried this myself and am hardly an expert. Also, using photoshop just turn on a grid and the cooridate display. That should ...

Re: Writing Method: Linear vs Non-linear

I tend to build around certain scenes. I flesh them out and get a good idea of what I want to happen. Then, when it comes to actually starting the project, I kind of play connect the dots. I start at the beginning and fill in the blank space story-wise as I go. I think it comes from too much Game Ma...
