Re: I need about a hundred wishes that might be asked from a Genie.

I would wish for mundanely magical, but useful things like a camel that won't ever get sick, or a neat dress that's always fashionable. Perhaps a well that never runs dry. A sword that sharpens itself? (That sounds like a bad wish about to ruin someone's day.)

Re: Hey there ^^

Ooh, some cool thoughts (also, welcome to the forum!) I don't know of an in depth study of it, but I think you'll find most visual novels are blocked more like a stage play than a movie. All the players in the scene are visible on the stage at the same time, and they enter and exit the stage as the ...

Re: Some VN games has no music?

I wrote one a while back: [text] - A Summer Story is designed not to have music, but there are sound effects.

Typically, I think music can help add depth to a story, but it's just another tool that you can choose to use or not use.

Re: Is Lemmesoft Dying

Hello! I'm still around and I show up daily to do moderator duties, but it's rare for me to post as much because I sink most of my time into dev these days. I see a lot of chatter on twitter and Discord, mostly. And I spend a lot of time looking at everyone's portfolios in the for hire section. So i...

Re: Ren'Py @ 15

Wow, I had only been around for a year as of your 5th year post. Feels wild that it's already 15. I'm happy to see how much the community has grown over the years. Looking forward to seeing where it goes from here.

Re: Is my posts deleted?

Hello, I'm the mod who removed them - I apologize for not sending you a message along with it. That's my fault. The forum rules state that this place is for games that are largely based on plot and the advancement of a story. I played through the games you posted, and they don't fall within those de...

Re: Clean VN Recomendations

Self-promotion time, ahoy. Here's some stuff I wrote. You might like it? Ripples - Super short slice of life. Bonus: same artist as Autumn's Journey. Jisei - Murder mystery game, although it's pretty light on the blood as well. No romance scenes. First in a series. If you like this one, you might li...

Re: Voice Actor Recruitment Question

There's a pretty low chance of that happening, but if you're worried about making the information public, you can always do a closed casting call. Basically, inform people you are casting, and request actors email a demo reel or audio samples, then listen to all of them, pick your favorite voices, a...

Re: No one using BMT Micro anymore?

Yeah, I still do use BMT at the moment, specifically because I like affiliate sales. Will probably not drop it entirely, but I will also be using itch.io+Steam moving forward, especially for free games. I've found some people are just happier to have a single place to store all their games.

Re: Game Jams: Upcoming & In General

For VNs, the most well-known is NaNoRenO. It's an annual event that's been running for over a decade now, and it's probably got the highest participation rate. It runs in March every year. You can find a list of previous runs here: https://www.nanoreno.org/

Re: Awards?

There used to be official LSF awards (The Lemmys), but the organizer bowed out of the scene a while ago. We have no intentions of hosting official awards anymore, but would be happy to see anyone who wants to run their own.

Re: Visualing the VN Market

Man, this is really interesting. I admit, I feel pretty cool seeing RE: Alistair++ has a stake in the otome community, and that Jisei and Ripples seem to be liked by both clusters. (If I'm reading it correctly.) It's also nice to see western VNs all over the place in terms of genre. Thank you for yo...

Re: Your VN making experience

As for finances, I'm lucky enough that the hobby pays for itself with a little extra to make the next game even more polished. It's hardly something I could make a living off of, but that's cool with me. I'm actually surprised by this because I did play a lot of your games, although RE: Alistair wi...
