Re: adventure game mechanics in VNs

I remember the old 'Tokimeki Memorial 2' has a little bit of exploring element if that's what you're looking for. https://www.video-games-museum.com/en/screenshots/Playstation/3/38882-ingame-Tokimeki-Memorial-2.png 'Number Days Dating Sims' by Pacthesis also has similar exploring element. The game i...

Re: Looking for a interactive pen display drawing tablet?

What's wrong with your current pen tablet? Artisul and xp-pen both have notable cintiq alternative with only third the price of cintic, but honestly, since I only use old wacom bamboo and old intuos pro so far, I can't really speak about them although I'd love to hear experience from those who have ...

Re: How to keep artists committed?

Whoa Mutive, I'll have to say something regarding filing claim. While it convenient for the commissioner, it can be REALLY damaging to the artist especially if commissioner doesn't communicate (aka gives warning) about it beforehand. If the case is you give the money to the artist, but then afterwar...

Re: How to keep artists committed?

I'm an artist myself and I'm really sorry to hear about what happened to you. I can't even disagree to what Mammon wrote about artist in lemmasoft because what happened to you actually happened every now and then here. Mammon has covered the important part very well, but hopefully my suggestion can ...

Re: Art Asset Alternative?

Isn't it okay to use the assets as long as the OP's game is free? And it's their first game too so if the purpose is to get the experience in making visual novel, I say it's okay. Although, the idea of applying filter to the screenshots to make them feel less 'the sims' is good too. There are also f...

Re: DDLC is blamed for teenager suicide

well, on the other hand, I hope DDLC's sales will massively rise and visual novel as a genre will get more notice after this.

Re: Players name themselves vs. OC character

why not take the middle ground? Give the mc an official name, but provide the option to change it if that's what the player want. Player won't waste time thinking of a name in the beginning of the game, and if they don't like the name you choose, well, the option to change it is there.

Re: !Opinions Needed!- would you play a game with this type of art?

I don't see why you should not continue with your current style. It's actually pretty unique compared to usual anime style. The only downside to this style is you need realistic body proportion to match the semi realistic facial style, as well as realistic expression. So if you think you got that co...

Re: Commissions Open

tbh, you should build your portfolio before opening commission so people will know what they'll get from commissioning you. If you're looking for experience, there are a bunch of non-paid jobs in the free projects section that you can apply. Or you can simply create one or two sprites at the time be...

Re: Stats/Inventory Screen Critique

Layout-wise, it's quite okay actually. I've seen equipment menu like that in other game, and it does always look a bit cramped. I think it feels cramped because the equipment icons are scattered, rather than neatly align. I tried to made a quick alternative of the version where the icons are align n...

Re: Artist(s) Needed for Simpsons Adult Game Demo

I wonder if you've given some thoughts about copyright? I know that you're not supposed to profit from fan-made game, which is the category your game falls into. My knowledge about copyright laws is very limited, but I suggest you read them yourself to avoid some legal problem in the future. Good lu...

Re: How do you go about making a demo?

As for me, my vn has 3 linear chapters and the demo will be some part of chapter 1, tastefully ended in a cliffhanger. Some people use placeholder assets for their demo, but I prefer that demo is the actual gameplay with finished assets, or at least 80-90% percent of the assets are something that yo...
