Re: How to make background music for visual novels

I don't know about free programs but I'd imagine most folks either use a midi controller or actual instruments that they've recorded.

Re: Asterism [RPG-VN] [Astronomy] [Some BL]

This sounds super interesting! I don't have time to read the script right now, but I will later. You mentioned this was a kinetic novel, but you also mention that you can fight and summon creatures/beings. Will there be battle minigames, like in Loren? No, the fights will be classic JRPG style with...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

my mother and i are living in poverty and i barely have the energy to do commissions on top of my schoolwork. I can't afford to quit school because I can't get a job because I'm disabled and we don't have a car. I can't catch an uber or get a taxi because we live so far out of town that it would be ...

Re: What are the big NOs of writing

Every single one of those questions is completely subjective. For example, many people consider 'purple prose' to be bad writing, but I'm a fan of over the top and lavish descriptions when done well (see: tolkien, cecillia dart-thornton). Another person may say that character drive stories are borin...

Re: Chasing the Stars [BxB] [steampunk-ish, college] [KS +DEMO]

I actually quite like that idea, and I think it would approve to a number of people as well. I actually gushed about this to some friends of mine who are into similar things to be honest. I think it would be really refreshing to have friendship routes in addition to romance routes. I enjoyed the dem...

Re: Book of Zhu Legacy [Wuxia] [Fantasy] [Female MC] [GxG]

Look I'm a sucker for fantasy and over the top martial arts films so this immediately appeals to me. Also the character designs are A+ In your kickstarter you've introduced the majority of y our staff as male and I'm curious as to whether or not you have any lgbt+ beta editors, especially since you'...

Re: Chasing the Stars [BxB] [steampunk-ish, college] [KS +DEMO]

First impressions: I'm loving the art and direction. Steampunk is a favourite genre of mine. Demo impressions: the music does not fit at ALL. It's far too upbeat for something I'd expect of a steampunk game; while it does seem suitable for science fiction its too.... electronic? For steampunk. Somet...

Re: Cosmic Raven - Ep. 1 [KN][Comedy][Sci-Fi][Synthwave][18+

honestly you had me at retro-futuristic. This looks really cool and I love that the art style doesn't fall into typical VN stylisation. Definitely going to be keeping an eye on this, I'm a sucker for cheesy 80s sci-fi :D

Re: On tracing?

Tracing from real life is your best bet for learning, in my opinion, but only if its for practise. I'll find pictures and trade the musculature or the hands so I can learn how it works, and then break it down into shapes. This is a nifty tutorial which touches on how to use tracing as a method of le...

Style vs Style in VNs

That's probably a strange title but its the best I could think of. I've noticed that almost every visual novel I've played has had the typical anime art style. This isn't a bad thing by far - plenty have absolutely gorgeous artwork but well... it gets a bit boring after a while? Games like Heirofani...

Re: Critique and Help Wanted for Sprite Art

Also - for sprite artists: Whats the easiest way for you to draw new expressions? Do you draw them all on new layers? I'd rather say expressions should be drawn on new layer groups, not just on layers. So you can apply layer group effects or layer group masks on them, with recent drawing applicatio...

His face is thin but his body is not?? Hand on hip can fit but it has been used so much now that it's becoming.....boring?? And I think it says little about the character. Be original! I think trying to give him a pose that says "i am a great person~" or "come to me~~" or playing with anything that...
