Re: Thoughts on death of Steam Greenlight?

I basically agree with every LateWhiteRabbit said. Browsing Steam is a slog of mostly unremarkable trash, barely playable alpha that almost never get finished and what feels like a bunch of kid's first attempt at a game. Its exhausting as a buyer and terrible for Steam, tightening up the requirement...

Re: Ladies, about the lack of "hentai" scenes with fem prtgn

If the writing isn't excellent it becomes a cringy mess... This is exactly it I think. I've played my fair share of awkward games with male protags that have cringy awkward sex scenes but I can completely overlook it because it's not meant for me and somehow that makes me cringe less, but when a se...

Re: Ideas Dump

Player is narrator! This idea just popped into my head and I thought it could make for a great comedy game. The player isn't a character or even a named entity of any sort, they're simply an omnipresent narrator that through choices they make effect the story and characters. They can even be antagon...

Re: Multiple Playable Characters

It can certainly be an interesting way to read a story and then read the same story again only for the other character to be more relateable because you're reading their motivations, doubts and rationalities this time. This is mainly my reasoning why I was thinking about doing it, since one of the ...

Multiple Playable Characters

So I was considering on how a VN might go with multiple playable characters. Like for example a game featuring only two or three named characters and the ability to chose which character you'd like to play as from the onset. I understand this doubles, or triples the script since each character's sto...

Re: How do you come up with ideas?

Multiple ways. I've taken dreams and nightmares and made them into stories. I had one particular dream about a girl with a book she could open and pull anything out of (including entire rooms and her house). I'm not 100% sure if I will end up using it as a plot but its always something I could use s...

Re:

Honestly, I'm shallow for this, but what I look for in a VN is good-looking art (if it's an OEL VN, art that doesn't look like animanga is a huge bonus). I think good visuals are essential for a strong VN beginning. It is, at least partially, a visual medium! Also, I think a beginning and a set-up ...

Beginnings

Beginnings are difficult in any medium and how you go about it affects the reception of your game or novel or any other consumer experience. For something like a VN I know it could be similar to a book but I think it has its own sort of difficulties. With a book you hook a reader with the first line...

Re: Why so many unfinished VN?

So the reason so many WiPs don't get finish and die out is because they showed it too soon. I mean sure if you account for every WiP of everything everyone is making that they aren't talking about or you don't know about I'd say its safe to say that 90% of all of those things wont get completed. An...

Re: Last Visual Novel You Played?

Wow, that's a lot. I only got to play the Facebook versions of Destiny Ninja 2 (I chose Kikyo), Wizardess Heart (I chose Yukiya), and Blood in Roses (I chose Jack), cause I don't have a mobile device I can play the rest on. I haven't finished any routes lol. Yeah, out of all of them, Destiny Ninja ...

Re: The VN or The KN?

I don't like KNs. Simply from my consumer's opinion I just don't like them and would rather not spend my time on reading them. I'd rather pick up a book before any thing else and KNs don't even register for me as an option. If I want a story, I get a book. If I want a story I can influence, I get a ...

Re: Last Visual Novel You Played?

If it counts I'm currently playing a good number of the Shall We Date "free" apps. I think it counts. Hehehe, been playing them too. Which ones are you playing, to be specific? Just curious. - Piet The majority of them. Destiny Ninja 2+, Wizardess Heart+, Ninja Assassin+, Ninja Love+, Destiny Ninja...

Re: Why so many unfinished VN?

I feel like WiPs are a good way to shoot yourself in the foot as a creator. Unless the vast majority of the groundwork, if not all of it, is already in place its best to err on the side of not showing it to anyone. Like take me an "artist". I don't finish even a quarter (probably less) of the all th...

Re: Is music important in a game?

Extremely important to me. I have and am currently playing a few without music but it does bug me and makes me think "this is low quality". I would be extremely angry if I paid for a game that had absolutely no audio in it and would probably want a refund. I think if there was a warning that told me...
