Re: Izumi's Writing [would like some critique/ proofreading]

That was amazing. I can feel the frustration that your main character and Riandur feels when they cannot log out. Really authentic feel, and I love the premise. The beginning was a little slow and I am not quite sure why that girl is so concerned about what your main character is doing. Are they dat...

Re: Some writing for my first little game... Critique please

I liked it. The word "suddenly" was used a bit too much, and you should have said "cease" instead of "seize" (cease=to stop; seize=to take ) I imagine that it is going to be fantastic when you add pictures.

purple_pockets' Ideas and Writing Samples

As the title suggests, here I will be posting various ideas for VNs or KNs and perhaps some samples of my writing. I am rather new to doing projects of any sort, so if any of these sound interesting, I'll write a short piece based on the idea. I am posting this here because I feel that the Ideas Dum...

Re: Alter ego+The sims 3 = Beautiful life game

It sounds like an interesting idea, but why shouldn't I just play "The Sims 3"? Is there something going on at the time? Maybe you could add some political intrigue, some danger? Is the girl running from something? Why should I care about all these statistics? Does it do anything for her? I don't me...

Re: [Goodies] A couple of free backgrounds

Amazing! I love how these look!
I might just make a visual novel based on this scene. It looks so cool. 8)
I know this is a bit off topic, but where do you place images in the ren'py directory? I tried to put an image in a game yesterday, but the software said it couldn't find it... :oops:

Re: Low self-esteem in making a game. What do you do?

I know I posted this in another thread, but someone suggested that I ask this here, since its kinda similar: I know that I previously posted some reasons that sometimes keep me going on something, but how do you start when you are convinced that your ideas are, well, crappy? How do you even begin so...

Low Esteem/Motivation (warning: contains some whining)

Forgive me if this sounds really whiny... :cry: I really, really want to make a visual novel of some sort, but every time I begin something stops me. Something like well, this is going to be just another waste of someone's time or I don't even know what I want to do... I never know where to begin. I...

Re: Ideas Dump

Forgive me if these ideas are dumb. I have been drooling over the idea of a BL otome game recently, but I am reluctant to post it because it might either be dumb or weird. Also, my parents might look at me funny for being interested in something like that. :oops: If you really must know, it would de...

Revelations on Writing

Revelations on Writing I haven't written any visual novels yet because I am always stuck on the story. I have found out a few things after trying to make a story pop out of my head for months. Please post anything that you think is important for an aspiring game creator like myself to know. I have j...

Re: LSF Forum Mandates - Completed Games

When I first found this forum, I noticed that it seemed a bit disorganized (although now it doesn't bother me as much). I think that it is a great idea. Maybe a forum for people that have completed games, and one for those who have played it? I don't know. I do know that if I were a game creator, I ...

Re: Goodbye From Lemma - Thank you for 9 years of VNs

I know how frustrating this type of person can be-they are beyond reason. I know this is cliche, but actions speak louder than words when it comes to someone's personality. This type of person really isn't mad at you. He is mad at his mom or dad or something like that. For some reason, instead of ge...

Re: Aileo's Writing [Desperate for Improvement!]

@Rewritten Ennui: I am not so sure if she wants it to sound like that. :D (first couple of sentences) I think she was going for a certain feel, and I felt that I was in a medieval fairy tale when I read those first two sentences. But I really understand what you were trying to say. The way you put i...

Re: Advice for Coming Up With Character Names

@at Tsundere Lightning: I love the name Cassandra for that very reason. Maybe it could be used in a horror story (I actually thought about using the name "Cassie" in a horror story. She would see dead people, and the dead would somehow know what was going on in the universe. Of course, everyone thou...

If so, please tell me the script. p.s. If this isn't supposed to be posted here or something, please let me know. I don't want ...
