Re: Berry Street [Slice of Life] [Mature Audiences] [Free]

Hello from a fanboy who lives near Chicago, and who's struggled with relationships. I attended a small local church for years until I had doubts about my sexuality. Berry Street, as well as writing as a whole, is a hobby that I do because I want to do it, not because I feel like I have to. Progress ...

Re: Astaleth's Mages [GxB][Adventure/Drama/School/Romance]

What do you think of the protagonist, Nina? I hope to follow the examples of many OELVN creators of the otome genre and bring my MC to life, rather than have a doormat with her personality defined by the player's choices. Nina is sassy and outspoken, though she is far from perfect as her main flaw ...

Re: The Hero Of The Prophesy [Free, short, kinetic] [Light, Childish]

I don't plan to translate the character's name; You know, when a franchise come to France, English names are nearly never translated: We have Optimus Prime, Twilight Sparkles and martian manhunter, and a very few people notice that their name actually mean something. What do you think of doing the ...

Re: Paragon [ANYxANY][Superhero][Adult] v0.1.1

I noticed this work-in-progress. Two things got my attention... * Distinct art. That can help you find (or possibly create) an audience for your story. * External conflict. I've always enjoyed stories in which characters are fighting tangible threats (rivals, enemies, nature...). * Play a male or fe...

Re: Players name themselves vs. OC character

Assuming that you give the protagonist of your story a name, think about who he is and what his goals are. Write down notes for story purposes. Ask yourself things such as "What specific things does he wants to achieve? What's keeping him from those goals?" as well as "Who are his friends, family, r...

Re: Writing visual novels that are geared toward adults

My cast is primarily over 20 years of age and I'm wondering if there is any difference between writing for children and writing for adults as the target audience. Rule #1: don't talk down to the audience. In my opinion, a reader will want you (the author) to respect their intelligence. Demographics...

Re: If I Could Love

This is just a small project. With a very small team. It might not be noticed because of its overuse of VN cliches and tropes. As well as its close similarities with Katawa Shoujo. But we're still going for it. 1. If you believe in your story's merit, then write it. (You can look at specific exampl...

Re: Ideas Dump

"Can't load your previous save and reconsider a decision." When I finally tried a Telltale game earlier this year (six or seven years after hearing a ton of positive buzz...), this was the aspect that surprised me most. I'm used to loading save files in video games in order to retry stages or bosses...

Re: Expectations of convention vs. narrative

I know otomes usually have all male love interests, and although my game is 50/50 male and female romance options, exploring the story with the romances is still the point of the game, and for that reason it will probably appeal to women more than men? There are visual novels which have both male a...

Re: Life in Helsinki. [slice of life]

The market I am aiming for are girls between 12 and 32 ( approx. ). I know a lot of visual novels tend to favor the dating or heavy romance arena, but I truly wanted something different, so it's more about finding your place in the world, against all odds...Let's see if it can still find an audienc...

Re: Story Progression, Route choices, and 'free time'

Dangan Ronpa has been sitting in my backlog for a few years. I really should try it... My game has a main sci-fi storyline which is going to be mostly the same for every playthrough. It is also going to have side events with the romance-able characters like a dating sim. Not worrying about giving t...

Re: Pantsu Hunter: Back to the 90s [Romance][Comedy][BxG]

In this game you can be honest gentleman, lying scumbag, dissolute bastard or exalted romanticist just to be able to conquer another girl steal her panties... 1.

Re: Children of Cosmos [BxG][Supernatural][Romance] [DEMO]

About thirty years ago, there was a prose novel called Born into Light by Paul Samuel Jacobs. I read it quite a while back, and haven't thought about it much since then. That said, your story premise reminds me of this novel. Maybe it's the meteor shower aspect, or how some of your characters have e...

It sounds like Monster Prom has just been released on Steam. I'm glad that the project's made it this far. Hopefully it'll find an audience that enjoys it. I've only tried a handful of computer and home console games in the last seven years. Is there any chance that MP might be ported to some other ...
