Re: Christmas Sweaters [GxB][Otome][Holiday Romance]

Hahaha! Thanks for the off-season bump! (Hey, it's about the time of year people start inexplicably humming Christmas music anyway, right? No? Just me?). So glad you enjoyed the game and the characters, and thanks for your lovely comments!!!

Re: Tomato Soup for the Heart [GxB NanoReno 2015]

AHHH!! I said I wasn't going to play any games until I finished my own nano, AND THEN I SAW THIS WAS DONE!!! I've already played it through like.. 3 times to get different endings, and omg, I love it! I made the same mistake my first playthrough (and also had really terrible luck with my skillups), ...

Christmas Sweaters! Just a quick little holiday-themed game I made to teach myself Ren'Py this past winter.

Re: White Lie [GxB/GxG/Friendship][Slice of Life][NaNoRenO 2

@ixWishing Thank you!! I really hope you enjoy it once we're done! @Razz - Wow, thank you! That means a lot! We've been neglecting this thread a little, but it's only because we're chugging away working on the game itself. I'm a little late for a screenshot Saturday, but here's another cap of what t...

Re: A VN studio has the same name as my VN - opinions?

I'm not 100% about this from a legal standpoint, but I know there are plenty of books out there that share the same title, both with and without sub-headings/series designations/etc. Usually they're in different genres, or released years apart, but it's not actually all that uncommon. It might be wo...

Re: A less boring Dating Sim Formula?

Not all dating sims have stat raising, but of the ones that do, I think the best and least grindy ones are the games where the stats you raise have to do with the plot of the game rather than the romance itself. Having to force a stat to be able to unlock scenes for a romantic interest is a pain, bu...

Re: [BxG] Marry, F*ck, Kill [Drama,Dark,Suspense,Controversi

The fact that the characters strike you as being disposable means my objective is working. But consider this, just because a character is disposable, does that justify killing them? No. It does not. I did set it up that way for you, the player, to think that way. To think like, "Yeah, my co-worker ...

Re: [BxG] Marry, F*ck, Kill [Drama][Dark][Suspense]

MC has something to lose. A normal life. And he will lose it whether or not he decides to go through with it. Right: if he'll lose it either way, there's no tension there. Stakes need to be higher and more realistic? What's worse and more realistic than the rest of your life being ruined? I think C...

Re: [BxG] Marry, F*ck, Kill [Drama][Suspense]

And nobody's saying anything that happens in this story is moral. This is a terrible situation to be in, not that it could ever happen. I think, to me, this is the core of the problem: it's clearly a manufactured situation designed to initiate and (more-or-less) condone a power fantasy. The big bad...
