Bara, Yaoi, BL - what are the genre/subgenre differences?

Something I've been curious about for some time particulary how they apply today to the west and how they may be changing. I found some nice short definitions of BL, Yaoi and Shōnen’ai in this article... Article by Emma Hanashiro (2015) “What is BL/Yaoi [Definition, Meaning] First, it is important t...

Re: To Trust an Incubus (Kickstarter) 5 DAYS LEFT! [NSFW] [yaoi] [bara] [bxb][sci-fi] [adults only] [erotic] [dating sim

Congratulations you've done very well with your kickstarter. Don't second guess yourself with your writing - you are not going to please everyone (it's impossible). Make the game you want to play (it will keep your motivation up). Plus even though it's bxb you are trying to bring together yaoi and b...

Re: Chevalier ♦♦♦ [BxB] [Fantasy, drama]

Ooh, I like the look of this. Lovely art and I like the sound of the world and the intrigue. Does it matter a lot whether the main character's name is changeable when they have a thoroughly set personality? No. I usually don't change them. Are you writing in 1st person for Kyul or third person? Is t...

Re: Long dialog trees

I use Freeplane to help map the branching options out prior to putting everything in Renpy.

Re: Matching a "team" and talent to a vision?

I would recommend fully writing your story first. Once the writing is all done, work out the list of other assets you require (art, music etc). That way you've a better chance to get consistency in things like your sprites, cgs and backgrounds. Change can creep into an artists work if they work on s...

Re: Chess of Blades [BxB][Mystery][Romance]

Was pleased to see this was out as I enjoyed playing 'Requiescence'. So far I've died once but I am enjoying it [like your backgrounds this time :) and the character art is lovely]. Took me a while to get use to Rivian's voice but Franz's has that deep sexy tone to it. [He can whisper sweet nothings...

New Year's resolutions and your VN development

New year has just started (for me anyway), so it's time to start with a clean slate and get on with the VN development. I put out a small linear VN in 2014 but haven't managed to put anything else out since. I did manage some background art for Lads in Distress (so not a total washout). But trying t...

Love your art Pinlin. That music illustration is gorgeous.

Re: Your Daily Routine as a Creator?

It's not the same for each day. Day's I go to my day job (4 days a week) - I get up early and do some practice art (just in a sketchbook) for 90mins. Makes me feel I've achieved something for me for the day and puts me in a good mood [although it's not always easy to get myself out of my nice warm b...

Re: How do You Stay Motivated to Complete a VN?

Staying motivated can be hard. I was working on my current VN, was finished the writing except for two endings (around 40,000 words), had commissioned and received the sprites, was painting up my backgrounds when I lost my motivation. Lost it because I wasn't happy with the plot as it moved through ...

Re: Chess of Blades [BxB][Mystery][Romance][DEMO!]

I bought Requiescence and enjoyed it very much. Looking forward to buying this one too when it's finished.
