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.

Re: Eight Sweets (1960s/Romance/Slice of Life)[Yuri Jam 2016](COMPLETED)

Hmm... that's odd. May I ask what you played the VN on (Windows, Mac, Linux)? I'm trying to reproduce the issue. Windows. BTW, I just started a game again and didn't happen. I choosed again grilled cheese, but the package came from another place. This time it was Japan, the other came from Africa. ...

Re: Eight Sweets (1960s/Romance/Slice of Life)[Yuri Jam 2016](COMPLETED)

I didn't know where to post this, if here or in the completed thread, but... There are some parts where there are 2 music tracks sounding at the same time. I don't know if it's one of those random events, but in the first scene after the breakfast, when receiving a package, what I supose is the mus...

Re: Minimizing Project Length

In January, I gave a talk at the 2019 Visual Novel Conference on what I do to organise and plot out my visual novels: I make a story grid.

A recording of the talk I gave was recorded, so you can watch it on YT:



Hope it helps!

Re: How would I make bgm that sounds like it came from a 90s/2000 vn?

The creators of the 1999-set game, Hypnospace Outlaw has recently released a free (Beta) Tune Sequencer (music maker). I've used it, and they've made the interface pretty clean and simple for beginner composers (plus, there's tutorial videos and example cover songs on Y*uTube). You would have to con...

Re: Mystery Games, Questions Without Giving Away Answer

I'm working on my own detective game, so I've been thinking a lot about this myself. I also saw Mark Brown's "What Makes a Good Detective Game" video, and as you say, hiding the question as well as the answer is key. And one of the answers Mark Brown gave as a solution to solve this is the Search Ba...
