Re: Starlit Flowers [GxG] [Slice of Life | Fantasy] [NaNo16]

Just finished! This is one VN that I missed in the WIP threads, but when I saw the cover art on itch.io, I decided to download it. It was a good choice! I really like the art style--all the lines look very "soft" and the colors are great. I also liked the fairytale, Stardust -esque vibe to the writ...

Re: Any Tips for Improving Your VN Writing?

I quote Roy Peter Clark, from his 50 Writing Tools book. Read for form and content. This means one can study different aspects of different work, and use what they learn in their own story. Note the difference between Form (How something is written) and Content (What it's about). For example, you w...

Re: Any Tips for Improving Your VN Writing?

Thanks to everyone who has replied so far! :) I also agree with Sundownkid. But the thing is, there isn't a lot of novels written in the specific genre I want to write in. I primarily want to write fantasy, but with LGBT+ characters and romances. There aren't a lot of novels like this and there are ...

Any Tips for Improving Your VN Writing?

Hey all! I'm feeling kinda blocked with my writing right now and I feel like it's because I'm not very confident in my writing abilities. I want to improve but I'm not sure how to go about it. I've only written one VN so far as an entry for NaNoRenO this year. But I've already started writing two sc...

Re: Starlit Flowers [GxG] [Slice of Life | Fantasy] [NaNo16]

I finished it! This was a beautifully written and drawn visual novel and I greatly enjoyed it! Music and GUI were fantastic too. And the characters are so precious! I wanted to pinch their cheeks the entire time. Must...draw...fanart... I loved Ailis and Cerise! I was kind of sad to see them go, bu...

Re: Starlit Flowers [GxG] [Slice of Life | Fantasy] [NaNo16]

Aw, this was such a cute VN. I loved the character artwork (Cerise's pouty face was especially adowable), and the backgrounds were all so pretty. The sprites of the girls with flowers in their hair was also lovely - and the CGs for it. Ailis' flower braid was adorable - it reminded me of Rapunzel f...

Re: Starlit Flowers [GxG] [Slice of Life | Fantasy] [NaNo16]

Okay! So I finished playing and I'd like to give my thoughts.. At first, I thought this was a boring and a long kinetic novel but I continued to play it, in the middle, I laughed with them while reading. It's really cute, the story was simple but very effective, I touched my heart and it was so war...

Re: Starlit Flowers [GxG] [Slice of Life | Fantasy] [NaNo16]

Oh noo, this was so cute! I was interested in this project from seeing the bits that were shown on the WIP thread, so it's exciting to see everything come together. The music suited the fairy-tale vibe of the story and general aesthetics really well. I also loved that there were extra sprites where...

Re: Starlit Flowers [GxG] [Slice of Life | Fantasy] [NaNo16]

I agree with doktorcrimson - the romance felt kinda rushed for them. This was really sweet! I loved the fairy tale-esque feeling, and how Einar's story came together in pieces. The ending was unexpecting, which surprised me, because usually the whole split-up-girl thing is a cliché trope not done w...

Re: Lucky Me, Lucky You [NaNo2016]

I loved this! I didn't think I'd like Nanami's character at first but I grew to like her a lot as the story progressed. I liked Ryo too, the two of them make such cute friends. ^^ I also liked how realistic the ending was. People aren't always who you think they are or who you want them to be, espec...
