Re: Portraying SFX?

It's fine to tell the player that Eileen is mad, No, it is not. That is degrading into telling rather than showing, which is bad writing regardless of the presence of supporting assets. If Eileen is angry enough, the content of her dialogue alone (or her act of initiating a silent treatment) would ...

Re: Portraying SFX?

Visual novels are novels at heart. Of all the involved elements, it's the text, and not any other asset, which is meant to be capable of standing on its own. Everything else is supplementary, no matter how well the other assets provide their support or even if they wind up taking the spotlight, as ...

Re: Swan x Swan [YuriJam][Romance][Fantasy][NaNo16] (Preview

Last week of NaNoRenO! Things are looking... good, probably! Most everything but the actual scripting is done, and since I write the script as I'm putting the pieces together, that's always the last thing for me. Anyway, I've been quiet lately, so here's some previews! http://nonsense.munchlax.org/s...

Re: Fare Thee Well [Kinetic] [Drama, Historical] [NaNoRenO 2

GGGSHSFHK those first character concepts are so effortlessly beautiful! I mean I'm sure plenty of effort went into them, but they're so simple and gorgeous, you (or your artist?) make it look easy >3>; Those faces are so perfect, I honestly spent a while just staring at them. Enchanting. If it's on ...

Re: Portraying SFX?

I've been thinking about this for my NaNo this year... I want the game to be playable by people who can't hear, or don't want to turn on sound, but I hate writing sound effects into the text. My conclusion is that animations or transitions may be my best bet. If I was doing something lighthearted I ...

Re: The VN or The KN?

I think both are great. I don't mind at all if a VN doesn't give me choices, as long as it's a good story and I can enjoy it without wishing I had been able to change things. I'm a very visual person, and I enjoy reading dialogue/interaction more than prose, so a linear VN is more of what I really e...

Re: NanoReno 2016

I'm just curious. To those who don't have musicians/composers with them, where do you get your music from? Yup, Creative Commons music is your best friend! On my first NaNo I wasn't thinking about music at all until I was looking in the Creative Commons section on this forum, and I found all the th...

This is such a cute idea! It's a shame my project will probably run right up to the line as it is :\ I'll try to participate after the actual NaNo deadline if I can :)

Re: Picking Maximum Variable Value From a Large List

The problem with the dictionary function is that it needs to know the values for the stuff in the list, and I don't HAVE those values. Since they're player-controlled, they can be a range of things. And so far, I've found nothing about how to put variables in a dictionary where I don't know their v...

Re: Keeping text shown during transitions

Doesn't seem to do the trick for me, but I just took a quick try, and I may be missing something. I'll give it another shot in the morning. Thanks! :)

Re: Do you write a VN like a novel or a screenplay?

I just write it straight into Ren'Py files ^_^; That would get problematic for a long piece, I guess, but it works well for me because I prefer to avoid most narration, and adjusting sprites while I'm writing helps me do a better job. If I was writing for a group project, I'd have to try something e...

Re: Your opinion about stats in dating sims

While on that note-- I'd also like it if you actually GAIN STATS WHILE HANGING OUT WITH LI. Like I MEAN I WANT THIS. Hanging out with a jogger LI and getting little tidbits like "you know, [insert random bits of tips here]". In real life people get closer because they share knowledge on what they l...

Re: Your opinion about stats in dating sims

maybe everytime you go fishing you get trivias that can become conversational materials for the fisherman's son? That's similar to my idea of it, as you said, when your stats determine your affection with a character it just seems like they're not interested in your protagonists personality, but nu...

Re: Have you been ever been so deeply engrossed in research?

On of my game ideas right now is based on a Finnish folk story that my husband's surrogate grandpa used to tell him when he was a kid. It's about a girl who married a bear to placate its spirit when it was killed, which makes her this weird sort outside-the-law woman and she goes on an adventure to ...
