Re: Good Examples of Sprites Talking to Each Other?

I personally liked how Doki Doki Literature Club moved the character who was talking slightly forward. It's *really* easy to do in Ren'Py (I can provide a code snippet if you're curious as to how - I'm sure mine is different from DDLC as I wrote it myself, but will totally cop to stealing the idea)...

Re: ★ DemiDato: Monster Dating Show [ALLxALL] [Dating Show] [Humor] [Demihuman]

Just wanted to pop in and reveal that all of our sprites are officially complete!! https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/c3ce65d3-23b0-4da9-b013-25bea2cc4756/de2aci5-9fcf0e35-6be8-4cd6-b4de-12751ee8a2d9.png?token=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJ1cm46YXBwOiIsImlzc...

Re: A VN with only two characters

I've done it *shrug* here It is tricky, especially in a longer script, but I actually prefer to write with small casts, pairs included - it's easier to have very distinct, well-developed characters, in no small part because it allows you to make foils out of all their traits and how they relate to e...

Believe it or not, progress is still being made on DemiDato! https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EVy4qxlVcAAy3k7?format=png&name=small Unfortunately we lost contact with our old sprite artist, but we've since hired a replacement ( @_yapsharlene ) who is WONDERFUL and is making short work of our remaining a...

Re: Nanairo [SuNoFes 2017] [Short] [Free] [Gen]

Thanks for the link! I really appreciate you sharing it, I totally get being less proud of older projects in hindsight and that makes them a lot harder to share. I want to update my first game with translations but every time I re-read it I'm like "ew this is bad" so I haven't really committed to w...

Re: Nanairo [SuNoFes 2017] [Short] [Free] [Gen]

Hi Zelan!! I'll be honest, Nanairo was my first foray into VNs, and I wasn't super proud of the story in hindsight ^^' so I removed it from public view on itch.io now that I've made some other things! But in the interest of history, here's a link to the distribution copy for you (and anyone else who...

Re: Handling ace representation in a story that includes sex scenes

Hi! I'm ace myself, and I've written a few ace-spectrum characters, so I'll do my best to help out ;w; Just to preface, you've probably already seen this, but a lot of ace people (and allos, for that matter) like to frame their feelings by splitting the different kinds of attraction: link . It can ...

Re: Characters Not Displaying Emotions I Input

Usually you'd name the image with name and emotion separately - if you called the sprite "farmer smile" instead of it all being one word, Renpy should be able to tell that "farmer smile" and "farmer sad" are the same character, and it'll replace the first one with the second. (Basically Renpy only ...

We might have been a little quiet recently, but development is still humming along! Our writing team are working on editing and revising our script, and we're also making some extra graphics to go with everything. Stay tuned for those! Here's a script excerpt in the meantime: https://pbs.twimg.com/...

Re: Do Kickstarters boost a VN's popularity?

Thanks for your opinions, trooper6 and sbester! It's interesting how split the dev community seems to be on this - I ran a poll on twitter with very similar results. https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/intermediary/f/c3ce65d3-23b0-4da9-b013-25bea2cc4756/dcuguoc-1981bf19-eca4-411...

Re: Do Kickstarters boost a VN's popularity?

That's very good info! Thank you so much Eyzi for your advice!
Good to know how it helped you since I think our starting audiences are probably a similar size.
