Maybe I'll enter it in Nanoreno :lol: 2) Finish my other projects, which are secrets. Project #3 may not come to fruitition till 2016 or 2017 since it's more complex th...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

I keep redrawing character design ref sheets due to anatomy errors. My VN is never going to come out by the end of October at this rate, like I had originally planned. Sigh... :(

Pixel art banners. meh. The symbol in the last pic is a (very poorly rendered) version of Dantalion's sigil from the Ars Goetia by the way.

Re: How can I stop making sexist games?

OP, write whatever the hell you want to write, even if it offends people.

Whoever sent that email was projecting. A lot. Which says more about them than anything else.

Re: Vile Halicarnassus [Mystery]

Cool VN! I loved the slick presentation, artwork, atmosphere, and nifty color palette. It's nice to see pixel fonts and artwork; I rarely ever see it in modern VNs. Kinda experimental, in my opinion. The characters and dialogue were snappy. The only thing that bothered me a little was that the villa...

Re: Mage Wars [Fantasy/Romance]

free resources uhhh Reika's sprite is an edited version of Alice Margatroid's sprite from Touhou 7.5: Immaterial and Missing Power, and Nicole's, Nami's, and Vic's sprites are Alphes-style sprites probably traced or stolen from pixiv. I can't believe the other posters above me haven't pointed this ...

Re: Hinting at dark elements vs. showing them

It honestly depends on what you are aiming for, OP. If you want to get an immediate reaction out of your readers, describe it in detail. If you want your audience to think about what is going on, then imply it. Showing is physical; implication is psychological. Also, I agree with Asceai. In addition...

Re: DEVN 2014 - Demographics of the EVN Community

For clarification--does the question "How many visual novels have you played this year?" apply to all VNs, or just EVNs?

Re: New Term for Visual Novels? [split]

Daily reminder that in grorious Nippon, VNs are often referred to as ADV (adventure) games--which is what they are. KNs are basically glorified comic books, whereas VNs with choices are basically ADVs with branching linear storylines. What sets VNs and KNs apart from the typical adventure game, howe...

Re: 2014 Nanoreno Post Mortem!

I tried to make it in time for Nanoreno but then my NEET procrastination got in the way, as usual.

(´・ω・`)

But I didn't delete anything, and I'm still working on my project, so don't worry.

Flip/Switch (or Furisui, as I enjoy abbreviating it) Pls... don't put Japanese abbreviations unless you're game is written in Japanese. It sounds weeaboo as hell. OP, regardless if you plan on putting pornography in your game or not, please work on your anatomy and proportions. The character's head...
