Re: Making of Conquerors [GxG][Fantasy/School][Free]

I just wanted to say, based on those screenshots-- the color scheme perfectly blends with the character art. I never thought I'd see purple look this good for this purpose. Well done. Also the characters' shadowing and highlighting look great!

Great job! I'm impressed you made this all by yourself! Not easy to make a NaNo solo!

Re: Cinders - now on Steam! [commercial]

Oh wow, I haven't been here in forever! :oops: Yeah, Cinders is coming to Switch on Valentine's Day. It's one of the first OELVNs on the eShop, actually, so that's cool. http://moacube.com/img/news_pics/cin_switch_vday.png I gotta say having your own game on a console by a company that shaped your ...

What is your VN Dev Wishlist?

As a Visual Novel Developer-- if there is something missing that you wished the community had-- what would it be?

As a Visual Novel reader-- if there is a resource you wish fans have, what would it be?

What do you think NEW VN readers need the most or would look for the most?

Re: Should there be a Wiki or Database for English Visual Novels Only?

Difficult on the previous part "people don't know how to use a filter system". Difficult also because people new to VNDb and visual novels in general may not know what they're looking for. And a tag system isn't the best way to get to know a genre if you're brand new on the scene. If I didn't know I...

Re: Should there be a Wiki or Database for English Visual Novels Only?

Everyone, I'm rather surprised. The feedback on this idea is very different than the other social media platform polls and feedback from other VN creator sites. Most of them WANT a separate database: 2 to 1. Filtering to find EVNs on VNDb is difficult. That's why I originally am bouncing around this...

Re: Should there be a Wiki or Database for English Visual Novels Only?

Yeah, VNDB definitely has its problems and I'd be happy if an alternative database existed, but I personally wouldn't want to switch to one that purposely excludes a large amount of VNs. That would just make it a huge hassle to keep track of what I've read when I like VNs no matter what language th...

Should there be a Wiki or Database for English Visual Novels Only?

So this question has been tossed around and I was wondering y'all's take on it? What would you think of a Wiki or new Database for EVNs only? Why or why not? Or is VNDb enough? Would a wiki be better? What are some of the challenges/successes your project has had with VNDb? This is not a "shot acros...

Recommended EVNs for those who've never read/played them before

If you had to make a list of the non-eroge EVNs that inspired you-- what would that list be (publisher/ name of VN) ? Also if I wanted to introduce someone to EVNs, which titles are a good place to start?

Re: Marketing Right and Avoiding Toxic Pitfalls

Very good advice you all! I'll relook at how I'm presenting. You all gave me some things to think about: the story's feeling and graphics. (But I won't give up the Visual Novel label--even if today many of them are dating narratives. There's a growing number in our community writing stories besides ...

Re: Twice Reborn [Drama] [Vampire]
