Re: Making sure different paths are balanced?

I think sonnen said most of it, but filler isn't filler if it develops your character. IE. before 'filler', character has no dog IE. within 'filler' character gets dog IE. after 'filler' character has dog in bedroom occasionally seated in different poses on the bed (or whatever) and then if it's sti...

Re: Creating a Romance Visual Novel and have a few questions for you

For starters I'd like to thank so many people for participating in the quiz. I was shocked to see the results. While this is only a small sample size, It is extremely inspiring and will really help a ton with my decision making process. I expected these to win over, but I did not expect how overwhel...

Creating a Romance Visual Novel and have a few questions for you

Hi there I am Yolo400. I have an idea, setting, theme (and such) and am ready to put it into practise, but I'm trying to figure out what might be a 'bad end' before I commit pen to paper and was wondering if you lovely folk could help me with a few questions in the google docs quiz below (link attac...

Re: 110% Free Proofreader+Editor+Ideabouncer In Search of Game!

Mystery! Fantasy! Crafting! Paranormal! Halloween! Plants! Friendship! Disabled characters! Cookies!...Oh no, wait, not that last one. Once upon a time there was a mysterious, fantastical, craftsy Ghost, living on his own in an apartment. He loved his plants for dear life, and they were his only fr...

Re: Everyone suggests Snowball and Blue Yeti, but... (More questions here)

Work on your voice and your voice only. Record on the cheapest microphone you can find, since your voice is the only constant. A good mic won't make you an amazing voice actor, only strong vocal chords and understanding. So can I recommend- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estill_Voice_Training (learni...

Damn, Chris. Your music is sexy. By comparison I only charge a few bucks per track :)

Re: Sound Design and You

What you define as "sound designers" are greatly underestimated.

To be honest though, these things should be written in as SFX in the writing process.

Re: Do you think that creating side characters with shallow back stories is bad?

Since you have the honest critique thing I'll throw some in! I don't think it's bad to have shallow characters. There are shallow people after all, but then again, just because someone is shallow it does not mean that their experiences are not shallow. Just their methods of interpreting them are. Yo...

Re: Looking for music estimates with possibility of hiring!

Hey Leah! Hello Yolo400, Thank you so much for offering your time to write a post, though I already knew most of that information. :) We definitely aren't looking to release the game for October of this year, considering the writing will barely even be done by then and we understand that quality ta...

Re: Looking for music estimates with possibility of hiring!

Hey Leah! I hope you're not aiming to release this at Halloween 2017 since music is a long thing to do, especially on the cheaper budgets. For music to be written that tells YOUR story, you need (and I mean need) as much info as possible sent to the composer about characters, settings et cetera, gra...

Re: 1st VN project needs encouragement and corrections

Well my post wasn't really advice, just what I'd edit- my actual advice is more "Go ahead and write the darn game, then go and make the darn game!"

Re: A Character's Voice

What do you mean that the first voice is better than the second? The second narrative evolves properly and is wonderfully done. The first is a static shambles . I know you don't have the honest critique thing in your signature, but I believe honesty is the best policy. "What am i? why should I care ...
