Re: Making Visual Novels (For People Who Hate Visual Novels)

Not here, not now, RG. On topic, I think the root of this is the fact that VN readers/creators now share platforms with other gamers. The mentality that we have to somehow appeal to a broader audience is hard to apply here, if not impossible. Just because people end up enjoying a game with VN elemen...

Re: Synergia [GxG] [Cyberpunk] [Sci-fi Romance]

Aesthetics-wise, this is probably the coolest looking Cyberpunk VN in the works since Va-11Hall-A. I hope to see where you're going with this. Good luck.

Re: VN's Without Narration

Actually, depending on what your standards of what a visual novel is supposed to be, a VN without narration -does- exist. It blew my mind too. Everything is in the script. All dialogue, and sprite sock-puppeting. So it's either a really high budget kabuki or a low budget anime. You decide. https://y...

Re: What makes a professional artist?

There are different kinds of skills that can go into professional artists. To me, the most valuable skills would be, in order of importance: 1: Timeliness Being able to deliver a working product on schedule or on the deadline. 2: Quality Products are finished without glaring errors like bad anti-ali...

Re: Marketing + Design: What makes great promotional imagery

Just bought this game at full price, shortly before I realized that it was pretty lackluster. What is it with gorgeous looking games with nonsense game direction and writing? It makes me want to cry. ...Well that's deja vu. http://orig00.deviantart.net/8e86/f/2016/316/1/8/rlcov_by_l_rossfellow-dao7p...

Re: </reality> [Sci-Fi][Fantasy][Philosophy] DEMO released!

[EDIT: I can't find the KS link. Where is it?] I have had my fair share of kickstarter heartbreaks. But after playing the demo, I think I'm willing to give this a chance. It'll take me a bit to compile my thoughts on the demo so far, but I can say that I wasn't expecting what I got from it. At all. ...

Re: Going from writing VNs to RPGs

Well, Extra Credits has nice things to say about game design and game theory---- Whenever they're not trying to push an agenda.

It's the wrong EC episode for this topic anyway. I doubt OP is trying to make an MMORPG, which eliminates two of four archetypes listed.

Re: Idol Manager [business sim, dark comedy]

I definitely like the premise as well but it looks like it is all female-centric cast? I definitely hope at some point in time that males will be included or have a separate "edition" :) I may decide to back depending on the price when you reach that point of doing a kickstarter or something simila...
