Re: Diverse Character Dilemma

I guess I shouldn't have used the word "responsibility" in that post.

Re: Best Election Ever

Pretty funny idea. This reminds me of a Creationist Cat video about him being in the Republican Debates.

Re: Harvest Moon Games

My first HM games was Friends of Mineral Town. Its music will later become my nostalgic triggers. I played a Chinese translation of it, and I made it to the 10th year and married Popuri. I also read its strategy guides extensively, and made it to the 255th level of the mine while taking everything a...

Re: Diverse Character Dilemma

John Oliver once said this (look up "Corporations on Twitter" to remind yourself how bad screwups can be): "Your silence is never going to be controversial." Applying that advice to diversity in fiction, it means that if you think you are going to "get some things wrong", you should play it safe and...

Re: Vector or Raster? What Art Program Do You Use?

I have tried to use Inkscape for digital anime art. I converted strokes to geometry so I can manually tweak line widths. I'm OK with the mouse because I have very sharp intuitions about cubic Bézier curves. The coloring and shading are very precise, and blending is doable with gradients and blurs. H...

Re: Ideas Dump

Larry Niven's The Magic Goes Away uses magic as allegory of the non-renewable energy petroleum, and near the place I'm living in (guess), there is an issue over building the oil pipeline, so I'm thinking of a MAGIC PIPELINE . The magic pipeline was proposed to sell magical energy to the Land of Wuta...

Re: "Children's Games." A visual novel about TCG Players

Speaking of "children's card game", is the overall tone of the story be Serious Business (as how TVTropes describe Yu-Gi-Oh anime), or it's a parody? Designing the rules and cards of the trading card game is important, but you said it's a small-scale project so maybe there won't be any detailed duel...

Re: Ideas Dump

I was thinking about Dragon Ball and how it started relatively small scale and eventually came to a point where a single character can destroy a planet, when I came up with this idea: It starts off on earth which is being controlled by a tyrant with the ability to affect gravity, and thus can make ...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

Trying to find time to draw, and I have mostly succeeded finding an art schedule. I'm focusing on different poses by finding references online.

Re: Novelation - A Visual Novel Tool for Unity

Nice idea! My old Unity visual novel engine I made in high school, which has elaborate indentation parsing, JSON save/load and questionable OO design anti-patterns, died after upgrading the project to newer Unity versions due to broken references, can finally rest in peace.

Re: Ideas Dump

This video is a goldmine of ideas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKi7CzP9Dxs Here is my idea. Unfortunately, I need a bit of magic and/or high-tech or else I'm stuck. A world where the love potion exists, but since sneaking love potion is against free will, social rules (and/or law) dictates it ca...

Re: VN Criticism
