Re: Normal or Fishy VN Company?

I've worked with A LOT of writers, and I've never asked such thing. A test scene yes, but 2000 words long seems a bit excessive. As for the pay, I think 8 cents / word is more than what 99% of indies doing VNs could afford (doing some simple math with an average length of 80-90k words plus original ...

Yes it's simply not worth the time! And imagine during a beta of a RPG with 3-4 updates each day... lol insane

Re: MacOS Catalina - Releasing on Steam

Or simply ignore MacOS completely. 90% of indie devs I know, including myself, are going to do it. Some of them earning six figures a year so would be definitely worthwhile to do a mac port, but they still can't be bothered to do all this mess just to have our grace Mac decide to allow us running th...

Re: MacOS Catalina

The 90% of indie developers are just going to dump mac support. I know at least 10 major indie devs who quit, and some are using macs as their development platform... lol

Re: Is is Worth to Release Your Game on Steam to Reach Wider Audience?

Gog refused my VN/RPGs as well (several years ago). So like all super-curated store, it really seems random depending on who looks at your game (like was Steam before Greenlight/open).

Re: a warning about Google Play

I have no clue, but when I showed them an article/review and Steam page of 5 years older they understood that "maybe" I made that game way before it showed up on their store :) Another time they banned an app because "I was showing inappropriate ads to minors". NONE of my apps had any ads! When I po...

Re: a warning about Google Play

Nah, I don't have time to waste honestly! Also in the end it's their store so they can do what they want. I'll focus my efforts on desktop only from now on.

Re: a warning about Google Play

I could find games promoting violence (real one, not just two sprites with zero blood on them) in 2 second search on Google Play...sniping games where you take down men, etc with realistic 3d art. Not posting links because I don't like that. Double standards? :D

Re: a warning about Google Play

Google doesn't host games rated R18, their highest rating they allow is MA15. Well anyway, I guess a woman in bikini should be allowed at any age? :D This was one of the images for why they removed my game... https://i.imgur.com/wrWFIpu.png same image was fine on Amazon Appstore and itunes.

Re: a warning about Google Play

Nope, that didn't matter. Basically all my games were rated 18 (I exaggerated on purpose since there wasn't even any nudity) but still they removed them.

a warning about Google Play

They suspended my dev account today. As I posted in my own forums: So... rather hilarious to be honest. They shut it down because of "multiple violations". Some "violations" were showing women with SOME cleavage (not even that much!). Women in BIKINI (which is of course an obscenity!!!) and then a f...

Re: Ren'Py 7.3.2 Released

Basically the builds work "randomly". There isn't a clear way. THey work like 1 out of 10 attempts or more. Trying everything, like restarting the PC, shutting down other apps, etc. Now I uploaded a broken version of an app and I can't fix it because it always gives me out of memory error! :lol: I h...
