Re: Relating to a character in a fantasy or SciFi story

Give him relate-able things that make him human. Family, friends, lovers, etc. Weird personality quirks, funny habits, normal people troubles like "dang, my teammate is hogging the bathroom again even though we have to go out in five minutes" or "I want to go home and spend some time with my wife in...

Re: Voice Acting in a Dialogue Heavy Game

I'm not a big fan of voice snippets as they can be kind of jarring and hard to do right. If I see a line and start hearing it being voiced but the voicing stops before going through the whole line, I'll be slightly thrown off. Even if the voicing is only grunts, if the voicing doesn't fulfill all of...

Re: sprite placement question/thought

I would recommend either: 1) a CG with them in the car. Changing expressions in a CG shouldn't be too difficult. If the characters change poses dramatically, it might be a bit troublesome, but if they're sitting, they probably won't. 2) Put a background of the car zooming by on the street and use sp...

Re: Precision Academy: A Hetalia Fan Game [GxB] [Fantasy]

Hetalia fan game? From your post, I can't really see anything related to Hetalia about the story. Personally, you might want to play on the Hetalia aspect a bit more in order to attract that niche of Hetalia fans. I think that the story itself can stand alone as it's own piece of fiction rather than...

Re: A Gauge Of Importance For The Elements In A WIP Summary

Summary of Story/Plot (Includes characters) [*6] If the summary of your game is too vague, I won't understand it. I want to know what the game is about, the story and all that. If it's badly written or basically nonexistent, I probably won't bother asking you about your game unless your art and des...

Re: Mini-games you would like to see in a game?

I'm not really a mini-game person (when they affect the story line since I'm really bad at games in general), but there have been some I've enjoyed in some visual novels. Symphonic Rain: The game is music themed. The main character is a musician and he has to find a vocalist or something to perform ...

Re: Examples of Good/ VNs?

There aren't any EVNs that have really jumped out and shocked me with innovation or greatness, even if I've enjoyed a number of them (they're kind of short for me, since I like long visual novels even if they end up being a bit padded). However, if it's JVNs, I can give an example or two of somethin...

Re: Adding gameplay features without minigames

I really enjoy the little interactive aspects like phone websites, forums, etc. in games. For one, VA-11 HALL-A's phone's forums and websites were really quite fun to look through for the random tabloid news and whatnot. In the game, you get the meet some odd personalities ranging from 'police' to i...

Re: Scheduling question: Art first, writing first, or both?

I would say... First, get at least an outline of your story finished. Start writing the first draft of the writing. Partway through writing the first draft (50%?), if you really feel like you need visual representation in order to help you feel the characters better, get the character design down. F...

Organizing your routes?

How do you organize your routes? (ie. how the choices in the common route affect which route the player gets on) Do you use relationship points? Do you have a set of choices that a player must choose in order to get onto a route? Do you leave a premature bad ending if a player fails to get onto a ro...

Re: Ideas Dump

But the stuff about the concubine's daughter and said daughter just going along, watching and dealing with the Madame and the boss concubine's spoiled kids... those are fun. Show your filial duty, kids. Be adherent to Confucian thing...

How long should a CG be on screen?

It's pretty to the point. For how long should a CG be on screen? Or rather, what is the shortest length a CG should be on screen for? (I'm writing a script at the moment, and there's an introduction scene that I imagine I might do a CG for once the art part of the process comes along. Except, it's a...
