Re: Website/Blog for Showcasing Various Visual Novel GUI

It's an awfully, awfully small component of VNs to be reviewing, but I can see it being useful for developers, for sure. It's not hard to create a decent-looking GUI, but it can be a huge hassle to create something decent-looking and unique. If you're able to get into some hardcore GUI reviews that'...

Re: Planning a Story Question?

I'll try this and see if it helps me. Thank, it looks like it could work really well especially for someone who might have writers block :) Tawwny mentions daydreaming as the very first step in her method of creating a story. That's something I forgot to add to mine, but aside from the actual writi...

Re: Planning a Story Question?

Plot overview, then outline flowchart, then writing. The plot overview should contain absolutely everything about the story. Setting summary, theme summary, main plot summary, main characters personality summaries, main characters' development throughout the story or major conflicts related to your ...

Re: The Human Reignition Project[BxG][Slice of Life]

1. Is a love polygon really necessary for this story? Would the story work just as well if most of the characters just became (or remained) friends? With as many writers as we have, allowing everyone to have a fair share in the project would be difficult without giving the heroines their own route,...

Re: The Human Reignition Project[BxG][Slice of Life]

Also will there be more guy characters, like friends/rivals? There will be, but we didn't have the time to create the character sprites we needed before our announcement deadline (we wanted to reveal our project on our group's first anniversary), and we thought that posting a character summary with...

Re: Teamwork... does it work?

In addition to what Golden Fleece said, there are a lot of things you can do to create a strong development team, which will lead to a good game. I'm new at this development business, and going in more or less blind to these concepts set our project itself back months. Choosing your teammates is imp...

I'd like to submit my application too, though my submission samples aren't nearly as extensive.

Re: Freelance artist group for hire

My group contacted Collateral about a year ago looking to hire a CG artist. We didn't end up going for it, but they're really nice guys. Professional but not uptight. A good bunch to do business with if you can swing it.

Re: Use of sprite dolls

Hey, do you need a sprite artist? I talked to ours just now and he seems like he'd be willing to draw sprites for you if you want to give that a try. We've kind of got him weighed down this month (we need seven sprites from him by October 1st), but I think moe dictators might be something up his all...

Re: Ideas Dump

l Well... there's this , an idea I had back in January about a guy falling into a coma. Or rather, waking up after the coma. I think it's a pretty interesting story and I'd like to write it, even have what I think is a pretty awesome opening scene, but the group I'm with decided to move in another ...

Re: Giving response to bad game with good effort?

Not saying anything or beating around the bush isn't going to make anyone a better developer. If you play a game and think the plot is weak or the characters contradictory, tell them. Don't be a jerk, there's no reason to be disrespectful about it, but tell them how they could have done better. Even...

Re: Use of sprite dolls

If my goal was to create a game directed towards the current EVN market, then I would try to look for alternatives since it's more likely that the people who play my VN have already seen those sprites and would be able to place them. But if you're trying to expand the market and are doing most of yo...
