Re: [OPEN] Programmer for Hire! Also, Ren'Py to HTML

DragoonHP works with Aeon Dream Studios on all of our current projects, including mobile ports. Our most well known game, To the Edge of the Sky requires somewhat complex code compared to the average, staight-forward Ren'py VN, because of maintaining different versions on all possible platforms and ...

Need Programmer to port existing game

Hello, we have an existing PC and Android game, To the Edge of the Sky. We're looking for an experienced programmer who could help us with an iOS release. We've applied to be an iOS developer but are still waiting on the final confirmation. Aside from that, we're looking for a way to get translation...

Re: Is it worth having a Mobile version for your game?

We're porting our VN, Mystic Destinies over to mobile right now. Steam support has been good. It's been a headache, actually, just to get it on Android. Lag and random crashes and screen jumps. Can't say why specifically, as I'm not the programmer, but it's not as simple as we had hoped. Gonna try ...

Re: Do you write a VN like a novel or a screenplay?

We write ours like a screenplay. We've come up with our own ways to indicate things, but largely we use parentheticals for expressions and any other directions. Multiple choice selections are written in a consistent format using "text" formatting.

Re: Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons otome demo

Thanks for the detailed feedback! Regarding MC expressions - she actually has the most expressions out of any character (probably around 30 so far). She is just not that expressive of a person unless there is reasonable cause. Though some of it might be early writing getting used to working with her...

Re: Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons (New Game)

Thank you so much for the review! I can understand where you are coming from. It was very frustrating to have to choose between having to focus on the guys or the MC but in the end we only had so much time to devote to the prologue so we decided to focus on MC since people like her so much. Please r...

Re: itch.io

Saw this through NaNoRenO too and am probably going to upload our demo there. It's great to see that it has been useful for other VN creators.

Re: Pricing Question [Writer]

I used to work in journalism for $0.05 a word. I'm not sure what a good industry standard would be around here, but I've been curious actually.

Don't underestimate your work. You are the work horse that pulls 80% of the game along.

Re: female mc persona questions

The plain MC who is actually beautiful, the spineless MC, the stupid MC, the damsel-in-distress MC, the bland MC. People constantly complained about these MCs during our Kickstarter campaign and we assured them our MC was not going to be that way. We personally also had issues with these types. Ther...
