Re: Hunting Fable [Folklore][Supernatural][Friendship][GxB/

@Ryuushiro: Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, I really appreciate it. It will be interesting to see how this story unfolds. I can give you some advice on the cliche part. I used to have that same concern. It's easier to focus on, "Does this make sense," rather than, "Has this be...

Re: Hunting Fable [Folklore][Supernatural][Friendship][GxB/

1- What do you think about the concept? 2- We are not sure about the romance routes yet. Which characters would you like to be romanceable? 3- Would you prefer more poses for the characters or a bigger amount of CGs to make up for only one pose? 4- Which character description have you liked the mos...

Re: SC2VN - [Slice of Life, eSports]

I haven't heard of many stories with this premise before (aside from comedies), so that's what I find interesting. But the story hasn't quite captured my attention, mainly because I have questions not answered on the website. Perhaps you could answer them for me? 1) Is there any gameplay like miniga...

Re: Find a team for your next project on ludust

Do you know of anywhere I could go to promote the site (a forum?) to people who start projects/manage projects. Are forums like this my best bet? This is something I have personal experience in (launching a new community and advertising its launch). Often times I see people that have great ideas, b...

Re: In Real Need of a Character Crituqe

I just finished reading everything. I'll keep my critique very condensed and only note the more obvious things. If you want the full critique, just ask. She's 700 years old, but hasn't been able to fix her emotional or mental problems. That doesn't seem realistic. Unless someone is deliberately unde...

Re: Visual Novel with an anti-hero protagonist?

I recently made a reply talking about the concepts of "good and evil" choices in games, which you'll find relevant to your question. You can find it pasted below. http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=30778 Now assuming you've just read it, now you know my stance on giving players goo...

Re: Basic Knowledge on VN Making

Visual novels are usually made with teams. Each individual handles a separate job: writing, art, programming, music. etc. Learning to do all of those skills by yourself will certainly take a long time. It's just easier to have a team instead. Of course, even if you aren't adept in all these fields, ...

Re: Three Guys That Paint [BxG/BxB] [NaNoRenO 2015]

To me, the premise for this story sounds more at home with a television drama, or a sitcom. I can imagine a story like this being successful in those mediums. But judging by the tone, I'm assuming you're leaning more towards comedy. This feels more like a story I should watch rather than play. Partl...

Re: Can't recall any VNs doing this, but what are your thoug

Indigo Prophecy tried that idea. But as the game itself described, it was like playing a game of chess against yourself. You're the fugitive and the cop. Because of that confliction, I couldn't really decide which character I should emphasize with more. I felt more like a spectator to events, rather...

Re: Which of these 2 scenarios sound more interesting?

You've got to learn to make up your own mind if you want to grow into a successful writer. Write to express, not to impress. If a story gets made only because x amount of people said they liked an idea, then how much of the story are you really writing at that point? Since you sound conflicted, my a...

Re: Game studio name?.. as opposed to real name?

You could call yourself whatever you like. Just like people who make multiple videos or pictures can use any username they want. Make no mistake, you technically wouldn't be a business. Where legal or financial matters are concerned, the name would become more or less irrelevant. If you have to, say...

Re: Selling 14 beautiful backgrounds for only 100 usd!

Pretty impressive work. What equipment and/or software did you use to make them? I'd like to get my skills to this level one day.

If you haven't already, you should consider making some tutorials, I'm sure you could help a lot of people improve :)

Re: How to build a fanbase

Hello, If your idea is interesting enough, fans will always be made. But depending on your resources, creating that fan base can be either very easy, or very difficult. Coming from someone who's been down this rode before (trying to use the internet to gain attention to a product) I'll give you some...

Re: Voice Actor Seeking Work

I'm not too well-versed on voice acting, so my opinion isn't very educated, to be fair. It sounds like you've gotten the first step down: adopting the character's voice. It's the attitude I'm not really hearing, like you're holding back. Maybe if you improvised some lines--forcing it to be more orga...

Hello again, I'm very glad you were able to find my thoughts helpful, and you're very welcome. To better answer your question about the protagonist, the traits you listed help, but it needs a bit more than that. For example, I've seen protagonists that were outright rude to people overall, but still...
