Hello Lemmasoftians! Today I ran across a video talking about how new game developers should start by making something the size of a minimum viable product--let's call it a MVP from here on.

Re: How do you come up with ideas?

But when I'm trying to build a new idea or even build upon an existing one, I like to go on google images and type in some sort of a keyword regard...

Re: Poll: Preferences for romance-switch availability til en

I like all of these equally, but I think the important factor in what works WELL and makes it ENJOYABLE is what kind of a game it is. For example, a romance-orientated game I personally believe works best with either a voltage-style game. A story-orientated game I believe works best with "B". And a ...

Re: Customizable player character? Layering images?

Thank you for responding! So, I entered the code you gave me (along with the edits I needed to do, haha). I'm still not sure how you would mark it to remember that you've chosen a certain hair/face/etc. though. I thought originally that I would just need to do insert the following: menu: "What hair ...

Customizable player character? Layering images?

Okay Lemmasoftians, I have no idea what I'm doing right now. I was trying to test something out and figure out the code on my own but it just made me confused and frustrated so I decided to ask for help because there's nothing wrong with that, right? So, I was trying to figure out if/how I could lay...

I want to have it where the player gets more points/money to spend every day. ...
