Re: The One in LOVE [NaNoRenO 2014]

I enjoyed your game. It definitely followed some classic sci-fi traditions, including world-building, especially after finding out what was really happening. At the end I felt rather lonely... but in a good "that was a cool story" way. Great job creating the mood! :) I also think the art worked real...

Re: I, Miku [comedy][identity][vocaloid][Nano2014]

Thanks for the feedback... I'm glad to hear people are enjoying it! It was definitely tricky to balance references with things that would actually make sense to people who hadn't seen those series... I've also gotten feedback that some of the transitions between scenes are a little sudden, so I'll t...

Re: I, Miku [parody][identity][GxEverybodySortOf][NaNo2014]

@Donmai Thanks for your comments! Yes, that was my hand making a guest appearance, lol. It's the photo I took for the title screen before editing out the background. I had a transparent Miku I lit up with an LED, and I did a long exposure so I could move the LED around and get more light. I really w...

Re: ███▓▒░ Hammer - NaNoRenO 2014 OELVN ░▒▓███

I played it, enjoyed it. I think it made a nice short, more cinematic than the usual visual novel. It worked well to create an atmosphere. For whatever reason, I found the kill-the-girl ending to be "better" (as an ending) than letting the girl in. I did like the "last meal" a lot, but it still felt...

There are various odds and ends I want to polish up, and there's got to be some typos in there somewhere, but by golly I'm releasing it TODAY! I do plan to release a final version in the near future, though.

Re: I, Miku [parody][identity][GxEverybodySortOf][NaNo2014]

Thanks for the votes of confidence! Today I finished another background. Here's a screenshot: clubroom.jpg I still have to do the original classroom (which is a rearrangement of those walls and some props). I'm rather proud of the Haruhi clubroom because I crafted most of that myself. It's not absol...

Re: Black Doves [VN] [NaNoRenO 2014] [Circus, Fantasy] [3/26

Do your best!! I can relate to the "I don't think I can finish all these sprites" thing! ;) But gotta, try, right? I look forward to your game.

Re: I, Miku [parody][identity][GxEverybodySortOf][NaNo2014]

Updated my progress. If anything's going to be unfinished by April 1, it'll be some of the sprites (there are so many), but I'll see if I can finish them. For the most part they are photographed, but there are a lot not fixed up in Photoshop yet. miku_sgproud.png I also have a cafe background: cafe_...

Cool, keep at it! The story sounds interesting, so I would love to check it out when it's finished. I'm glad to see it's coming along.

Re: Paranormal detective [NaNoRenO 2014]

You're welcome -- I'm glad my feedback was helpful! Have you tried asking about the side images in the Ren'Py Q&A forum? It seems like one of those things someone somewhere ought to be able to answer. Yeah, the free source thing does explain the sprites -- I suspected that was the case, but wasn't s...

Re: Pretty [NaNoRenO 2014] [Paranormal]

I think I agree with DespairParty in that the sprites feel a bit unfinished. I love these sprites and I think the sketchy look and everything is absolutely adorable! They just need something a little more to signal that every visual choice is deliberate. I'm not sure what that "something" is, but I ...

Re: Reverse Metamorphosis [Kinetic] [Surreal/Absurd] [NaNo20

Intriguing -- I think not having the sprites contributes to the sense of mystery already. ;) I like the backgrounds!

Re: Paranormal detective [NaNoRenO 2014] DEMO IS OUT!!!

I played through your demo and I have some feedback for you. I really liked the background art. They all looked very nice and I liked the colors. The sprites were cool, too... I think my favorite was Jiing. They were problematic, though, in that they did not feel like they go together. They are done...
