Re: Sheltered [GxB][Romance][Drama][Magic][Non-Profit]

First impressions? Would you be interested in playing this game? Why or why not? This is such a cute concept and you have fleshed it out in an interesting way. I'm interested to see the execution, but from what I've seen so far I'm definetely interested in playing this. I'm also impressed by the pr...

Re: A GxB question: When is Enough, Enough?

Honestly, I don't think the amount of love interests is that important. My favorite GXB game (Aloners) has only one love interest. What matters more is the quality of your game. While I do see more games with 5-7 love interests, it's really rare to find games that do it well. Even though I was initi...

Re: Effective villain protagonists

I think the reasons I personally tend to like villains (even if they're not protagonists) is this strange combination of two aspects. First, a good motive, in the sense that, even if their actions are morally questionable, their objective (at least for the villains I tend to like) is a fairly norma...

Re: Do I need to change the male characters?

Here are 9 things to make your character more likable: 1. Self-awareness. If the person feels guilty and know they are too blame, if they are tormented or conflicted about doing evil deeds, if we see their tenderness or kindness even when performing evil deeds, then that person becomes much harder t...

Re: Best Writing-Specific Software

You can turn off spell-check in Word, but even with that, I find that Word can be distracting at times. I tend to nitpick on the formatting (and structure) too much and it tends to drain my time. I like using Notepad or Notepad++ (the latter has both spellcheck and word count) for just writing mysel...

Re: Aloners [GxB] (a post-apocalyptic romance)

I really loved this VN. The writing was wonderful, the chemistry was well-written, the romance and story strangely heart-warming. I loved the protagonist, it really did feel like her personality was shaped by my choices and I liked Trash, for all that he could be infuriatingly smug and bossy at time...

Re: "your highness" currently seeking proofreaders and criti

I'll be happy to proofread/critique for you. The story sounds interesting and I love GxB games (I also tend to like the proofreading/editing part of writing more than the writing part), so I think it would be pretty neat thing to do in my spare time. Is there any other qualifications you're looking ...

Re: How to tame your inner-critic?

This is one of my biggest problems as well. But for me, it's not solely about inner criticisms or doubt, but because I have a habit on not writing linearly. I discover my characters and plot line by line and when I go back to edit, I'm more likely to add to my word count then delete. I keep making s...

Re: What makes a game 'otome'?

When I think of otome games, what comes to mind is GxB reverse harem type games or a one-to-one type romance from the female perspective. I like otome games because they are at least guaranteed to have female protagonists and that they'll be targeted at women. I can avoid the typical fanservice-y st...

Re: In Real Need of Critique for Scene

I didn't much like this scene in the beginning. In the first part, Yasu was a real self-sacrificing idiot. I was irritated when he intervened in a dangerous situation for what felt like no reason (the person he was protecting was already dead) and even during the first sentences of the scene, I foun...

Re: White Face is looking for artists

Just stopping by to say that I love your VN concept. It sounds like a really fun game and the mystery behind White Face sounds particularly compelling. Unfortunately though, I'm not much of an artist. However, if you're ever in need for an editor or a proofreader in the future, I'll be more than wil...

Re: Main Character Race And My Race Issues!

If you think that they're the type of people who would ignore what you're trying to say or think that you judge people by their skin color, then why would you show them your work? Show your work to people you trust would listen to you and your motivations. Choose to show your work to people whose op...

Re: ██ Konett's Resources (backgrounds, sprites, items)

This is so useful! Especially the items, they would make cool unlockables for a particular route or make cool gifts for your romanceable leads. The BGs are also very gorgeous (especially the purple fantasy forest). And thanks for the new sprites! Also, there are more of your backgrounds here: http:/...

Re: In the Air looking for beta readers & editors

I didn't think about it that way before, but in hindsight it occurs to me that Casey really did feel like a real person. The honesty, even the flaws--is something rare to see in female leads, because sometimes I get the feeling--when reading other stories--that the female leads are idealized archety...
