Re: Is there a Visual Novel where the MC is the Love Rival?

There was a similar thread about two years ago. One thing which I didn't clearly mention back in June 2016: in the first two Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side games, the protagonist can meet up to four female friends. Depending on how she develops relationships with potential male love interests, the pr...

Re: Factory Of Souls

Looking at your website, it sounds like you have already finished writing Factory of Souls as a prose novel, and that it's already been published. That is encouraging. I often worry when I see a person talking about creating a complex / lengthy / fandom-changing visual novel, but they haven't alread...

Re: Project Pastorate [Dark adventure in the land of crime and sin] DEMO INCLUDED

You have a distinct art style, which can be a plus if you're selling your story. I think that your drawings can help you find an audience of people who are ready and willing to buy downbeat crime fiction. Yeah, it will be episodic unless we manage to find a publisher like asap. Still looking, and th...

Re: Seventh Circle [Urban Fantasy & Romance VN, AllxAll]

I learned about this project thanks to a post on r/visualnovels. I'm kinda different from other people who post there. I've tried about seven of their recommended titles (most of which are OJLVNs), but only finished reading a route in two of them. Two things I already like about Seventh Circle: 1. R...

Re: bury me by death's garden, after winter [Low Fantasy] [Drama] [NaNo18]

bury me by death's garden is a personal challenge to write a visual novel based on pre-existing art, instead of having art made for an original script. This sounds like an interesting challenge. Every now and then, I've dropped by the Art Institute of Chicago and thought about its 2D art, sculpture...

Re: Biting off more than I can chew?/Feedback

I really want the characters to feel like people and there to be more than just the end goal of a kiss. And I really like to be inclusive. Also, I like to have the choices matter. I like these goals. Write down some things to help you achieve them... 1. Specific pieces of fiction that you like, and...

Re: Opinions on the current visual novel fanbase/community?

I saw this same topic on r/visualnovels a few minutes ago. As of this writing, it has more than a hundred comments . If you're curious, I like that community, and I've posted there in the recent past. Unfortunately, I don't think that I have much in common with a lot of people who post there. I have...

I'm not a moderator. Just keep in mind that the forum rules state "Adult games must have an adult thread before any non-adult threads are created.

Re: Soulshine [RPG] [Fantasy] [Near-future] [Mystery]

What parts of the world would you like to learn more about? You've already provided some information about your world's magic. My first thought is "that's creative, could be amusing." If you have time, read about Brandon Sanderson's first , second , and third laws of fictional magic. Who is your fa...

Re: What are the most minute details of a Visual novel you can think of?

I've read quite a few visual novels which have featured things such as 1) character sprites combined with backgrounds, 2) drawn 2D art in color that isn't especially realistic or abstract, 3) either a separate textbox or text on top of still images, 4) a focus on characters' relationships, and 5) no...

If you choose to set your story in contemporary Japan, be sure to do research. Talk with a person who's lived there. Ask someone to check for errors. A couple things to keep in mind with minigames: * "Are they worth programming?" Only commit to creating as much content as you can handle. If your pro...

Re: How to sell visual novels with adult content?

Nutaku (website NSFW) might be an option. They offer adult games for browsers, pay-to-download, and mobile devices. They have a detailed page called "Game Developers and Publishers" which states what they offer for indie devs. Also, Nutaku offers a crowdfunding site called Kimochi. It hasn't been es...
