Re: Verbosity in Visual Novels

Horror story I haven't read through whatever you're describing, but the format doesn't seem like something I would try. Based on what I know I'd be inclined to agree with you, it sounds like I'd find that boring as well. I suppose rather than "boring" I should have said "mundane". Writers can be in...

Re: Verbosity in Visual Novels

Practically, it depends on how much time the reader has. I think one reason why many JVNs are so long, is because they aim to provide an "experience" rather than a "story". Another reason, seems to be that as most of the text in vns is typically dialogue - it tends to be read very quickly. This mean...

Re: Looking For Games to Review!

Hi Quelcezot, Thanks for your review...of my review! You mention that I don't discuss pacing very much in my analysis, which is a fair point. Rest assured that my position that there is too much within the plot is also based upon the fact that the plot is not long enough to introduce all of these e...

Re: Looking For Games to Review!

I just finished reading your first review, it was actually more in depth than I anticipated. To me as a reader, the most informative part was about your take on the writing. It seems like you had a lot to comment on and I feel like it must have been very helpful to the actual writer of the visual no...

Re: Which romantic scenes would you like or expect to have c

Thanks for these responses, you've all given me a lot to think about. To begin with, I find Googa's point interesting. I take it as wanting the art to complement the vn's individuality. In other words, using cgs that bring out the unique elements of a vn. Even if it's an interesting scene, showing a...

Re: How to setup rollback to keep current displayables

I'm afraid I've made no headway whatsoever with this. It seems quite a few people have taken a look so far, so I'm beginning to think there may not be an easy way to do this. Which makes sense, in the sense that it would explain why I haven't been able to find anything. If someone does take another ...

Re: BxG, BxB, GxG??

On a personal note, I'd like to see more M/F games with M/M options, seeing as how there are a lot of F/M games with F/F options coming out nowadays. This does seem rare. I plan on writing one for the next visual novel I work on, although that's currently impossible with my current project due to t...

How to setup rollback to keep current displayables

Rollback is a great feature, but to me I feel like the way it normally is detracts from the kind of experience I want to create. My end goal is for rollback to only affect text, keeping the current displayables on screen. Ideally, I would also like to show an extra displayable during rollback (to si...

Which romantic scenes would you like or expect to have cgs?

I'm curious about the kind of romantic scenes people enjoy being fully illustrated in their visual novels. Please try to remember times when cgs felt very appropriate in visual novels you've read, for example a simple kissing scene or maybe something more outlandish but still romantic. Are there cer...

Re: Portraying SFX?

Whenever a sound is heard I either describe it or indicate directly (*Creak* on a line on its own for example). It might seem odd at first to readers, but it's a convention that people get used to. As it can be a bit jarring at first, I'd try not to use it too much until I've proven to the reader th...

Re: Why so many unfinished VN?

Btw thinking positively some unfinished projects may still be finished one day, the fact that they look dead doesn't mean they really are. It's quite common that production takes years, ofc lots of people who got excited about the project when it was announced lose interest on the way, but nothing ...

Re: Fanservice: To be or not to be?

I couldn't agree more, and I'm really interested in this topic in depth. In many dating sims, sex (or in a more PG rated games, kiss) is used in a very sensational way. It's the goal, even, the climax of a relationship. When you say "non-sensational", does it mean casually? What about characters wh...
