Re: Does Kickstarter funding work?

I did a kickstarter for Your Royal Gayness in 2017 and as others have mentioned, it was a ton of work! Before the campaign I did a lot of research on what makes a KS campaign successful. We created a pretty high quality video using my university's filming equipment, made special graphics, gathered a...

Re: Dialogue tracker

Many people use Twine to map out branching choices. You could look into it, it's pretty easy to use.

Re: Some questions and advice on attempting my first visual novel

This leads to my question as to how you guys write your stories? Not the creative aspect, but, how do you organize it? Is there a way of formatting it that will make the coding easier later on? It's actually rather easy to code a story in Ren'Py. As an example, I have been writing my story directly...

Re: Some questions and advice on attempting my first visual novel

You should probably consider writing your text into a format that renpy can understand right away. Like so: mc "Hello! I'm the main character!" a "Hello! I'm a character whose name starts with an a!" So basically you give each character a short, unique tag (one or two letters is the easiest) and use...

Re: Deleting choices automatically after they have been chosen

I tried searching a lot before I came up with my solution and I never encountered the set functionality OTL Well, I need some choices to stay permanently anyway so I guess I'll still use my solution. Good to know about the set functionality for future reference, I might need it for some future proje...

Re: Deleting choices automatically after they have been chosen

How does this work? Like, what's the logic here? I'm self-taught when it comes to renpy coding so I don't always understand how other people's code works. I just wanted to share a solution that worked for me, but if there are better ways to do it, that's great! Why not let the regular menu do it for...

Re: Deleting choices automatically after they have been chosen

Good point! I didn't test the solution with multiples of the same choice caption. The easiest way is to make each conversation option unique (like 'Flirt with Satan' instead of just 'Flirt' ) or another, sneaky way would be to make a copy of your invisible image and name it something else, and then ...

Re: Recommended EVNs for those who've never read/played them before

I really liked Autumn's Journey, especially because it focuses on friendship instead of romance. It's free, so that makes it pretty newbie-friendly.

Re: Teach me how to draw

How much would you be willing to pay per hour? I think there probably are plenty of semi-professional artists or freelancers who'd be willing to help you if you can pay a decent hourly wage.

Re: How do you schedule things out?

My situation may be a bit different than most people here since I actually started a company (which is basically my job now) and I'm on my way to supporting myself on game sales but for me it helps to set work days and rest days. I usually have stuff on weekends like D&D games and gatherings with fr...

Re: Editor and minigame Coder needed (EU only)

I've found an editor but I still need to find someone to code the minigame. So far no-one has applied for the coder position so anyone who does has a good chance of getting the job ;)

Deleting choices automatically after they have been chosen

I tried to find a solution for my dating sim -style game project that features a conversation system. In the game the player can move around freely and they can return to talk to a character whenever. I wanted the engine to delete choices that have already been selected so that each conversation can...

Re: Bigger budget games?

I'd say you'll need about 5000USD if you only want a few CG's, and probably like 6000-7000 if you want more. The minimum you'll need for the sprites is about 1k, and maybe 3k for the backgrounds. You'll probably need around 1k for cg's if you have about 5 of them, and after that probably around 200 ...

We've found a composer and two writers, but we're still looking for an editor. Thank you so much for applying, everyone! Additionally, a new position has opened up: Minigame Coder! I edited the first post so check it out if you're interested.
