Re: Should I give my player insert character a backstory?

I think the answer partially depends on your goal for the game. In my opinion, genuine player-inserts are really hard to do well. The best examples I've played are Queen's Crown , which never made it past the demo stages, and Our Life . In both of these games, practically every single piece of dialo...

Re: Bug Gods

This idea is really, really cool :D I just read through all your update posts, and I loved reading your pieces on each of the bug gods you researched. I'm also really interested in the route structure you mentioned in the first post - it's unique, and I like the idea of being to influence other rout...

Re: Lost Girl in Dark Forest [GxB][Dark Fairytale][Psychological]

I really like this idea. You're right that visual novels focused on self-acceptance outside of romance are pretty uncommon, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this. (:

Re: Pan-Ya Visual Novel: Transition question

Do you mean that you want the "camera" to move from panel to panel in the sequence you've shown? I think the easiest way to do that would be to have one large image and zoom in on the preferred parts. I'm not sure if anyone has tried to do a manga-style transition before, but the game Serafina's Cro...

Re: What is your process for writing a visual novel?

Note that Steam does require you to pay a fee to put your game on the Steam store, so keep that in mind if you're planning on releasing a free project - it may not be worth it to publish on Steam depending on what you're trying to do with your game. itch.io doesn't have any up-front fees, as far as ...

Re: Advice on how to settle with my own art?

I'm sure you've heard the phrase "everyone is their own worst critic" (although for you this seems to be a particularly strong feeling). For me, even if I'm not totally pleased with something, my thought is "if I don't ever show it to anyone no one will ever see it." So I pretty much just have to......

Re: Medieval Backgrounds Needed

Some free assets can only be used if you are making a free game, so be certain to check the licensing for these assets if you plan on selling your game. Googling "free RPG assets" gave me these sites: itch.io assets , opengameart.org , and Craftpix . If you're looking to be able to customize the ar...
