Re: Actual Sunlight [Psych] [Drama]

Just wanted to give everybody a quick update on the game, and an additional ask for your support. The game made its IndieGoGo goal, which is awesome - I know that several people here on the forum contributed, and I appreciate it immensely. Now that the goal has been reached, and production on new ar...

Re: Actual Sunlight [Psych] [Drama]

Hey there! I just had to take a look at this because it's the kind of interactive story I've been hoping to see one day. It's EXACTLY the kind of experience I've been wishing that VNs would take in the West. Thank you so much for making this. Thank you for playing! I don't think I need to tell you ...

Re: Actual Sunlight [Psych] [Drama]

...Actual Sunlight managed to get a great one at Kotaku... Just getting your freeware product noticed by a website that focuses on commercial games is an achievement. Well done. An embarrassing aside: I didn't know your game/VN was discussed on Kotaku because I don't often read the site... If I'm l...

Re: NanoReno - 2013

I'm not 100% sure of what I intend to do yet, but I definitely intend to participate in NaNoReno this year. I do know that I'd like to tackle something that has the player interact with some sort of computer interface, similar to Christine Love's Digital: A Love Story. I know that she actually did t...

Re: Actual Sunlight [Psych] [Drama]

I hope I'm not a horrible person to be posting more great reviews, but Actual Sunlight managed to get a great one at Kotaku: http://kotaku.com/5982325/the-biggest-challenge-in-this-game-is-preventing-your-character-from-committing-suicide Take a look, and please check out my game if you think it sou...

Re: Loren Amazon Princess [RPG, all combos]

I bought and played through this on the weekend. Thought it was really well done! Only two criticisms I would level are as follows: 1. I feel like a lot of things are too closely based on existing fantasy cliches and tropes. My favourite things were definitely the riffs that I wasn't quite expecting...

Re: That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles [GxB, BakeSim, Slife]

By grapevine I meant the rumors and gossip sort , not a literal one >_> People there have a bad habit of not being able to shut up about each other, like Renee, so people have to be wary of what information they take seriously. Oh no, I know what you mean by grapevine... I'm asking about Panaderia....

Re: Actual Sunlight [Psych] [Drama]

Yeah, at the "apartment" part it should say that "go to the roof" phrase that every other object says (I don't remember the exact phrase right now) and at the roof itself it should just be blank. This trickery alone makes the "Help" menu a worthy inclusion. Ha... Yes, this is more or less what I wa...

Re: Actual Sunlight [Psych] [Drama]

Oh my god. How could I describe this? It's angst, hopelessness, despair, and resignation all in one package. I don't know where to begin but it didn't take long for me to get hooked. If I didn't have any interruptions then I would have finished this in one sitting, easily. Evan is a character brimm...

Re: That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles [GxB, BakeSim, Slife]

Hey! Sorry if some of my feedback is redundant from things that people have said earlier in the thread... Just take it as reinforcement that more people are catching it, I guess. I think your writing is really solid. It's polished. This game has a lot of potential and you've got a lot of potential, ...

Re: Culina: The Spirit of Cooking [BxG][Modern Day]

Part of this feedback is definitely just wanting to see more great artwork, but I think you should consider doing illustrations for the MC's mom and dad. I just find it hard to connect with them without seeing them, and I feel like the effectiveness of the entire scene sorts of depends on that. The...

Re: Culina: The Spirit of Cooking [BxG][Modern Day]

I realize now that I posted in the wrong thread...! I just played through the game again and have some specific pieces of feedback. I'll spoiler plot-related stuff. :) 1. In the opening scene with Paul, the MC says "I look around the room for a moment to gather my thoughts", but it seems more like t...
