Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

Still no place to live in my new city. I applied for student housing in march and I'm still on waiting list. My brother applied in April, and he got an apartment a few weeks ago. He's prioritized because he's younger, which is nice and all, but my age doesn't change the fact that I don't have a plac...

Re: Purlieu - {BxB, Sci-fi, Drama, Adventure}

Oooh, always eager to see more BxB projects. This one intrigues me, I like the concept so far, and the logo looks interesting. This has the potential to be really, really cool, I think, and I'm eager to see the kind of universe you develop. I like the fact that you're pairing up BxB with Sci-fi and ...

Re: Intangibility [BxB][Slice of life][Romance][Free]

Ooh, BxB! I like the concept, and Touma is an automatic fave for me, heh... The little chibi illustration is a nice touch as well. Looking forward to see what you can do with this!

Re: What are some Do's or Don'ts in your opinion?

I'm still new to this, but I have a few experiences: Do: Be confident! Have faith in yourself, and know that you're the only one that can make the VN you're working on. Don't: Focus solely on the end result. Sure, thinking about that glorious release day is nice for motivation, but it could also do ...

Re: Aki's Art ☆ (Noctos)

Dramatical murder - again, hands. I really need to practice hands. And I love their cell shading, I've tried many times to cell shade in a way similar to theirs but failed, I feel like I'll just forvever admire their art from afar. This was the most that helped me with anatomy and postures after fr...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

*sigh* I try to take criticism with a grain of salt, but after reading some serious criticism of my project I am feeling some doubt as a VN producer. It seemed like he was saying, "everything is wrong with this game, you pretty much failed". I know not everyone is going to like what I make, but it ...

Re: Smaller Project Struggles

I also struggle with making something short! I have this monster of a VN that I'm developing, and I know it'll take me at least a year, maybe more to get it done. Lately I get anxious because I really want it to be a great VN, but I'm not confident enough with my skills to do it comfortably yet. My ...

Re: Trademark and VN title

I suppose if you actually gave the name that you're considering, it would be easier, but I'll assume for purposes of the argument that you can't. ... And lastly, I want to stress that there's very little chance of you facing litigation here. As you're doing something non-commercial, you would reall...

Re: Trademark and VN title

It generally depends on whether you're competing with the company who holds the product with the name you want. If the name you want is already taken by another visual novel, it could be troublesome. But if it's from another industry, like say, a detergent company, you should be fine. From the bit ...

Trademark and VN title

I couldn't find any existing threads regarding this so: A new VN idea has been jumping around in the back of my head lately. A few days ago I came up with a title I thought fitting, and decided to check what would pop up if I googled it. To my surprise, I found that this exact title is actually the ...

Re: Plotting: How long does it take you?

I tend to brainstorm a lot before I arrive at something definite; usually listening to music when walking and/or commuting helps crystallize characters and scenes in my head over a period of months. Then it would take something like a day or two to actually write it down into a definite outline. I ...

Re: On Forum Rules and Moderation

I've taken a few days to watch this thread and to think before I post, and I believe I'm ready to participate. My view of this is divided. My knee-jerk reaction to the on-topic/off-topic discussion was to fight for off-topic discussions, because I find them both valuable and enjoyable. I think commu...

Re: How is your project going (or not going)?

Nice thread! I've been working steadily on the first draft of my script since May. I have a set word count to achieve every day, and so far I haven't missed a single one. Some days it's harder than others, but watching the word count go up motivates me more than anything else. I'm at 54k words so fa...

Re: Sinakhai's free music for your projects

Wow, thank you so much for sharing your work! I've listened to a few tracks, and they're right up my alley. I especially like the piano tracks you've posted, and I think I'll be using some of them in my VN. I adore the sad atmosphere in Andromeda Fields, it's my favorite so far!
