Re: Red Embrace: Hollywood [Vampire][Dark][GxB/BxB/NBxB][KICKSTARTER + DEMO]

Sexy trailer! The trailer is adequately dark and it also previews a few mystery characters too, which has got me more intrigued.

To echo Potouto, I'm really feeling this VN rn. Can't wait until it's out~!

Re: Red Embrace: Hollywood [Vampire][Dark][GxB/BxB/NBxB]

Ahhhh I *knew* he’d be House Mavvar lol! Randal (from his shadowy preview before the official character card) was always going to be my pick regardless.

Like a vampire with werewolf tendencies. >_< ~<3 kyaaaaaaa

Re: The Telepathy Club and the Summer Festival [Free] [Otome, Romance, GxB] [Summer Novel Festival]

Hi December! So I just finished this VN last night, and the entire time I was just like “awwww”. :) I think it’s shortness is good and allows the game to keep its charm fresh. I guess I “chose” Noah, although I wasn’t ever aiming to romance him...I just felt bad for him and wanted to try being a fri...

Re: Staying motivated when projects aren't successful?

I’d also like to add, “success” is a completely subjective term to oneself. So Shoji, I guess be honest with yourself with what you would consider a “success” but be warned, massive games like DDLC and even DreamDaddy didn’t chase a massive trend, they became one due to accessibility, popular backer...

Re: The ups and downs of a game's release

Mmm I wouldn’t say ratings are “useless”, I mean if you had a lot of raters with all of them giving you 1star, then that must mean something. However, I wouldn’t put too much credence to them. Like yelp reviewers, I’ve found ppl tend to give things either 5stars (cause they loved it enough to leave ...

Re: BARA JAM 2018

Hey everybody! If you're in the US like myself, I hope you're enjoying the well deserved long weekend/holiday and maybe some of it playing a VN or so lol. I plan to go for a boozy brunch (in California, we refer to this tradition as "Sunday Funday" - an excuse to day drink) and THEN play a VN, proba...

Re: Red Embrace: Hollywood [Vampire][Dark][GxB/BxB/NBxB]

Oof, color me (red) intrigued. I find myself really drawn to this one, and personally I've never really been into the whole vampire scene. Maybe it's because of the whole "HOLLYWOOD" thing? I think there's already something dark and seductive, lore-wise, regarding Hollywood and so it would blend per...

Re: BARA JAM 2018

@Heiden: I sincerely hope so! Build-A-Boyfriend is a fun, rocky horror-esque comedy and I'm guessing you'll surprise us with a blend of bara/humor this time around. @Hijiri: *chills* ooh, I can't wait! @Boniae: Oh no problem! Actually, the jam seems to be quickly taking a life of it's own. Lately I'...

Re: Ren'Py Jam

RenPy is a great engine, and it definitely deserves it's own official jam. I personally, am not an excellent scripter so I wouldn't exactly say my games push the boundaries of what's achievable in RenPy, heh :P However, as I play more and more VN's made in the engine, I am delighted often at how cre...

Re: BARA JAM 2018

One last thing, I'll be creating a Discord for participants but also for those just generally interested in BaraJam. It'll be a forum for people to shoot the shit, but also come together and find teammates and more!

I'll share that Discord link when the time comes. Thanks!

Re: BARA JAM 2018

Hi everyone! Wow, what a great number of responses I've been getting from LSF and itch showing support. I was testing the waters to see if this jam was even something people would want, (the game industry has taught me, there's no point in delivering a product that no one asked for) but I can confid...

Re: BARA JAM 2018

@Scribbles: Haha please don't feel like there needs to be NSFW stuff in any submission to BaraJam, despite how bara tends to have more adult content. I'll be updating the proposed itch.io description today, stating that there are many examples of bara type works that do not contain NSFW/porn conten...
