Re: Settings - interestingly unusual or overly niche?

I feel like Google has failed us if searching for "video games set in fantasy 17th century" yielded little to no results. Here are several fantasy stories set around that era, or includes that aesthetic: Visual Novel Games: -Cinders -Cinderella Phenomenon -A Knight's Devotion Other Video Games: -The...

Re: Is is Worth to Release Your Game on Steam to Reach Wider Audience?

In the end, I kind of can't imagine bringing the game to Steam not being worth that 100 dollar fee, unless you just put it there and call it a day, without using any of the tools the platform has to offer. Especially if this project is something more than a one-off, you have very little to lose – a...

Sites that Specialise in Covering Indie VNs?

Does anyone have any recommendations for news outlets, blogs, specific journalists, Twitter accounts, YouTube channels, etc that showcase, review, or cover smaller VN titles, or small indie games? I was recently listening to a video from Errant Signal about how niche and untouched tiny games are in ...

Re: What makes a visual novel?

There's a great video essay about this by Innuendo Studio, but on adventure games. But you can apply the same line of thinking with visual novels: tMVl5U3SlS0 TL;DR: Instead of there being a clear line of rules as to what a VN is or is not, there are (Innuendo Studio speculates) different traits tha...

Re: Graphics for a game with a blind MC

You may want to take a look at different games that have blind protagonists. Take a look at how they portray the experience of being blind. Here are a few examples: Beyond Eyes: You can perfectly see the player character. She's in a white void, and should will be illustrated with watercolour objects...

Re: Balanced Protagonists

It may be that one of your protagonists has a character arc (they go through changes), while the other does not (they stay the same from the beginning of the story to the end). Now, that's not a bad thing. There's a great television series called Good Omens that has two protagonists: An angel (named...

Re: Displaying locked/unavailable choices

I recently made a visual novel ( Eight Sweets ) that includes 9 endings, with one of those endings being the good end. The good end can only be unlocked once the player has unlocked the other 8 endings (as the player gets scraps of information from each route that is needed to fully understand the g...

How to Organise a VN Podcast?

Does anyone have any tips and advice on making a visual novel podcast? How do you organise/structure parts of each episode? How long would you recommend them being? Where should you upload them?

Celebrating Launching Your VN Rituals?

I would like to know, do other visual novel developers do something special to congratulate themselves for completing a VN? I was taught that rewarding yourself for completing big projects and dwelling on the fact that you've done something very difficult is very important to the brain. How do devs ...

Re: What makes a good Villainous Team?

You may want to think about villains you know from other works that you like and believe would be fun to write. I also suggest looking a TV Tropes' wesite and read through its articles on villains. There's a lot of info there, like descriptions, examples, and tropes.
