Re: Witch/Knight [Fantasy] [Nano 2013]

I liked most of this VN, it's extremely good considering it was made in a month. Goodness how I love the GUI. I think the closed setting and reusing of sprites for the trial holders helped with that as it gave you more time to richly develop something. I think that twist came out of nowhere. (I will...

Re: Love at the Laundromat [GxB][Romance, Comedy, Drama]

All this is super exciting and I can't wait for the game. You're so talented and motivated! Definitely forking out cash for this one. Something I did notice, though - I know it's just a preview screencap and I'm totally being finicky, but you switched tenses in that screencap with the nurse. "Straig...

Re: Color Temperature Adjustment

Wouldn't this also affect tinting? I know some artists integrate different lighting and colour temperatures to sprites and backgrounds to fit certain times of day or weather, and it looks like this feature would conflict with that.

I'd have to agree with this.

It's a cool concept, though, I just think lots of people wouldn't like how it can't be disabled..

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

I especially dislike when there are extremely Western overtones to the entire game like an all-white cast or completely avoiding any Japanese themes of any kind. Indicates an eerie level of exotification to me. I know people who are latina or desi or indeed, Asian, and people give them nicknames to ...

Re: Demo & Missing Art

I don't think you should release a demo with some background images completely missing . I know plenty of well-received demos that use placeholder backgrounds. My advice would be to perhaps use photo-manipulated stock images, like applying a filter to them or something that makes them look more like...

Re: Love at the Laundromat [GxB][Romance, Comedy, Drama]

I like the backgrounds, they have a light, lineless feel. They don't exactly match the look of the characters, but they match what we've seen of the GUI and they're very nice to look at. I'm so happy you're still working on this!

Re: Rare and interesting things you'd like more of in VNs

A while back, I made a couple similar threads, which I believe were called "Settings you'd like to see" and "Main characters you'd like to see." I don't have enough time right now to find them. Hmm, I changed the topic to "Gameplay/UI elements you'd like more of in VNs", do you think that will clea...

Gameplay/UI elements you'd like more of in VNs

What are underused gameplay/UI elements you'd love to see more of VNs? I'll say mine, as example: I'd love to see people utilising dialogue/plot choices in a way that isn't just clicking on a dialogue choice the same way you make plot/action choices. Like conversation trees, or even changing how peo...

Re: Inner Vision: VN about preventing suidices

This is actually really interesting! The dialogue is believable. I liked the skeleton, he was funny. And I managed to help everybody!

Quite enjoyed this, thank you for posting it Taleweaver!

Re: How do you like the UI?

I like the character embellishment and the portrait, they're both creative and easy on the eyes. What I don't like is the colour of the text and the size of the textbox in general. It looks like it's just been tacked on at the bottom, it took a long time for my eyes to be able to focus on it in comp...

Re: Untitled [Drama][GxB]

I literally screeched when I read that the protagonist is transgender. Bless your soul. Hopefully you're willing to research trans* people's experiences so that you don't accidentally put in any problematic stuff. I think she should be sixteen, that's a good age for coming-of-age kinds of stories. C...

Oh, this looks SO nice. The art/colouring style and the logo has this cute, clean, shiny look that is really good for otomes. I can't wait for this, I love stories about royalty! Suggestion: Are you going to have a custom cursor? I just watched the GUI video, and I think maybe a white cursor with a ...

Re: Amaryllis [GxB GxG] [Romance, Steampunk]

I like the sound of this! I wish there were more steampunk VNs, to be honest. I also like how the characters are adults. Gives it more of a depth, for me. "Elspeth" is kind of a fantastic name. Her finding out about the poverty of the kingdom once escaping reminds me of Deltora Quest - it's an Austr...

Experienced programmer looking to join a project! (Unpaid)

So, I've been missing programming. Last year I was apart of a project for a long time, but right now it's kind of disintegrated which is quite disappointing. I'd really love to join a project to program for. Right now I'm attached to a small project and have coded what's been sent to me by the creat...
