Re: When the Shutter Stops [Mystery, Crime] [GXB, GXG]

This is a cool and different premise for a VN, and I like the hardboiled noir atmosphere. I'm looking forward to checking out the demo when it's released! I have some questions for you. 1. What's the inspiration for this project? What kind of influences do you have as a writer? 2. You mention examin...

Re: [CLOSED] Seeking colorist for sprites and CGs

Thanks so much to everyone who applied! I've got all the applicants I can handle right now and am probably not looking to consider anyone else.

[CLOSED] Seeking colorist for sprites and CGs

Hi! I'm the lead developer for The Devil's Broker , and we're in the process of planning a character art overhaul to match our backgrounds better. Our character art currently looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/Ho751c2.jpg We'll be redoing it in a similar style in terms of proportions, facial featur...

Re: The Devil's Broker [Action/Magic/Guns/Intrigue]

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, I agree about the character art. My artist did a great job at what I asked her to do, but in retrospect I wish I hadn't gone for Live2D (I'm not an animator, so it ends up limiting character expressiveness) and thick comic-style lines. I've been considering going back t...

Re: The Devil's Broker [Action/Magic/Guns/Intrigue]

Oh, hey. Here you are. Hey, fancy meeting you here. Oh man, that bathroom scene is setting off so many red flags, I can't even tell you. I have rules about these sorts of things, and going into eerie, poorly lit bathrooms is firmly in the 'Don't' category. I fully suspect something, probably someth...

Here's another background. Spent way too long on this scene, but I need more backgrounds from it, so hopefully it'll pay off.

Re: The Devil's Broker [Action/Magic/Guns/Intrigue]

Can't take credit for the wallpaper, since it came with the model, but I agree it's nice! Glad you like the composition too. :) As for the lighting, I tend to be a fairly lighting-oriented artist, and you see it a lot more in these moody night shots than in the day shots. Here's another one: http://...

Re: The Devil's Broker [Action/Magic/Guns/Intrigue]

Yeah, I didn't really mean to go horror, but I'll take it. Turns out abandoned buildings are spooky at night, who knew. Anyway, thanks for the compliment! I'm on a roll this weekend and just finished another one. http://i.imgur.com/2kD9Ea0.png Thinking I'm gonna have to revisit the exterior shot to ...

Re: The Devil's Broker [Action/Magic/Guns/Intrigue]

Just finished a new background! http://i.imgur.com/RC3WgwY.png I feel like something is fishy about the clouds, but I'm going to put it down for now and maybe revisit it later. I posted a bunch of WIPs on my twitter if you're into that and would be happy to elaborate on the process. I should write u...

Re: What is importan in a character?

Well, from a renpy point of view : it's important all the characters have a name that starts with a different letter (so you can refer to them in code by that single letter). This is commonly issued writing advice in general, actually. Different-sounding names help the reader keep characters straig...

Re: The Devil's Broker [Action, Magic, Guns, Intrigue]

Thanks, Markus! I appreciate the offer and will definitely keep it in mind. Sorry for the lack of updates, everyone. I've been mired in editing, but I just finished the last significant draft, woohoo! There are a few minor content changes, one dead end, and line edits left, but I'm going to let it s...

Re: The Devil's Broker [Action, Magic, Guns, Intrigue]

It's been about a month. I'm hoping that this project is still active. If there are development concerns, be sure to ask for help. Yes, it's definitely still active! Sorry for not updating. I've been doing late-stage editing, which is dragging on longer than I hoped and is hard to discuss in an int...

Re: Sprite angles

I actually really prefer having the protagonist have a portrait on-screen if they're not a player self-insert. Fault has sold well and uses this approach: http://www.capsulecomputers.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/fault-milestone-one-screenshot-3-600x338.png I'm also doing it in my own game ( her...
