Re: Logic Blade[Murder Mystery]

When I see the number 9, puzzles, water, and mystery together, I always think about 999. Is this novel inspired by that game by any chance? Though you mentioned other sources of your inspiration (probably), I'm not familiar with the writers you mentioned (I don't usually get my story 'crack' from bo...

Re: Know of any free music creator?

If you are familiar with reading/writing tabs or notations, you can use TuxGuitar. It is capable of editing, creating, and playing multiple tracks using MIDI. And it is free. On the other hand, if you are going to deal with voices or recording live instrument, you can make do with Audacity, which is...

Re: Any Tips for Writing/ sketching?

The hardest part of writing is not writing at all. Sure you want to create a simple story, and you are generating random complicated ideas, but if you want to progress, you should write them all. You will surely reach a point wherein all you need to do is connect the dots and organize your ideas. Fo...

Re: Designing Kickass Menus

It's not that it's lacking, really. It's the default for a reason, after all. We're just seeing if we could do something with more flavor, you know? If it turns out we can't, there's nothing wrong with using what Ren'Py gave us. Some of the stuff we've been trying to work out is how to phrase the o...

Re: Kinetic Novel?

In my view, Juniper's Knot is a well known game that is a true kinetic novel. It's not bad to start with if you want to experience that type of game, I think it works pretty well since it's short enough to hold your interest without choices. I've heard that game from time to time, and I know it is ...

Re: Kinetic Novel?

I wouldn't really call Digital: A Love Story a kinetic novel - it had a bit of challenge and interactivity that was required to move the plot forward, so it was more of a very basic adventure game in which the adventure took place on the desktop of the character's computer. Analogue, the sequel, al...

Re: Kinetic Novel?

Oh, let me reiterate something. I did finish a KN before. I believe it was Digital: A Love Story. When I got it, I never knew that it was a Kinetic Novel. However, I was tricked by the game play -- not in a bad way of course. It presented me with choices and things to do instead of just clicking and...

Re: Free wallpapers for PC - use or not use?

I'm currently using 'free' wallpapers as backgrounds in the game I am developing. They help me motivate myself, and using them makes me think that I am getting somewhere. Testing and writing the game becomes a relaxing experience. It makes me focus on the things I should do. I'm sure that even prof...

Re: Kinetic Novel?

1. Is this something you would want to play? I think not. I don't go for VNs that are heavily supplied with dialogues, unless the story was able to get my interest. So far, I haven't finished something like that. On the other hand, I would rather read a book or ebook. Clicking my way through the st...

Re: Would you play a game without CGs?

A game without CGs is fine. Though, for the sake of offering a different opinion, CGs are important to be present in adult themed galges. CGs are the pinnacle features of adult games. But if it is just a regular dating sim, it is okay. And for the story, CG or no CG still requires you to have a good...
