Re: Would anybody be willing to read my Death Note VN?

Which characters did you write about? Are there shippings? Pro or anti-Kira?

Re: Stalker&Yandere [Yandere][Romance?][NaNo17]

I've been hyped for this since you posted the recruitment thread.

Stalker-senpai looks so creepy :O That's my type :*
Poor Sebastian-kun is stuck in the friendzone.

The bleeding heart in the logo is really cool :O

How to avoid 'sameface syndrome'?

My characters always have the same face structure, but different hair and eyes. (Warning: TVTropes link.) How can I draw faces that look cute/moe, but aren't identical to each other?

Re: Can a visual novel "without sight" be good

You can still have: - Cool fonts, maybe different fonts for different characters or situations to represent voice - Background images that are solid colors or textures - A lot of music - Sound effects - Silhouettes of the characters (can be downloaded for free on many websites) I have read a visual ...

Re: A team of people you can trust?

I slightly disagree with the posts above. A good idea is the foundation of a good visual novel. It's just as valuable as good writing and art, even though coming up with ideas requires different kind of work. Writing and drawing require a lot of practising as well as talent, but ideas are born 100% ...

Re: Max Massacre [Free] [Fantasy/Romance]

I was really excited when I noticed this visual novel, but there turned out to be one problem. I didn't like Celeste at all. She goes to classes just to boast about how smart she is. She openly threatens to burn the village, letting anyone hear her threats. She insults the people who risk their liv...

Re: Sprites with different poses as well as expressions?

I'm drawing a new pose for every expression and every time a character holds an important object. Some characters also have younger versions or different outfits (with a new pose) for flashback scenes. I think the biggest problem is keeping the art style consistent. I've drawn over 50 sprites alread...

Re: I'm feeling a little down :(

You said you've been diagnosed with mental disorders. Are you going to therapy or getting help with anger management? I think you should be. You could practise calming yourself down when you start to get angry. You also said you have insecurities. Often people who lash out at others are very insecur...

Re: Symbolism

I think the good use of symbolism will happen naturally when the writer really enjoys telling the story for the sake of itself, and doesn't only want to explain some real-world event to the readers. The story should be interesting and meaningful even for readers who don't understand the symbolism. T...

Re: Creating likeable characters

Here are some things that I think make characters likable. 1 - Don't show Author Favoritism towards the character. Nothing is more infuriating than the writer making everything too easy for a certain character. Underdogs are easy to sympathize with. The character should have at least as many struggl...

Re: Pervert and Yandere

I read the whole vn except some of the extras. Your writing is very good and also funny in many scenes, for example the pool scene with the queen bee rival. I liked the large amount of internal monologues that Richard had. The narration only rarely seemed to go on for a bit too long. I liked the com...

Re: This is going to sound a little odd..

I've also been writing a visual novel for about three years. I've never been more committed to a project, but I still feel like it's never going to be finished, and if it does, it'll probably turn out to be embarrassingly bad garbage that everyone will hate. That thought hurts, because the story is ...
