Re: How do you write "complex" characters?

Contradictions make audience stay thoughtful about your character. But as you can guess, overusing that method cheapens it. How many little girls and tiny villains with threatening words have you seen in fiction? I prefer using the exception. Exceptions are more customizable. For example, have a cha...

Re: Are dating sims just an excuse for porn?

When playing dating sims I hope for warm and kind experiences where I meet various characters, know about their unique traits, have some surprises and solve mysteries and stuff. Play as the role of the MC makes me feel important, like a character that is always in scene (like in real life) so that b...

Re: Friendship story writing

Friendship is a good topic. To imply just friendship, many stories features the full main group being all girls or all boys. But you could use other means like the title of your novel to tell it's about friends. Friends may be linked with feelings as strongs as your heartwarming usual lovers'. And y...

Re: Writing an organized script

I would rather start the organization right from the start. But if I was to organize some old project notes, I would search for keywords among my files. Check the date, filesize and get your categories ready (grouping apart dialogues from narrations and these two from notes or reminders for you, the...

Re: How do you stay motivated to finish?

I can't finish because I want to make something so special too, of course. If it is something so personal, you wouldn't want it to be done before its time comes. I started to lose sight of the end, wanting it to grow bigger and greater. But for my ending purposes, that's to stop doubting about my wo...

Re: How to convert integer to float value

How about using xalign and yalign?
I'm not sure when you may use one number notation or the other.
Another idea I have is looking for the variable that stores the size of screen. Maybe config.screen_width and config.screen_height?

One-Shot Characters

When building my worlds I think many roles that characters may occupy and portray. Sometimes I'm short in meaty characters and feel tempted to born a new one with the only purpose of filling the gap. When is advisable to create a new character? (especially in late development) Should it be made from...

Re: Is changing frequently the mood of a scene a bad practice?

I'd need to see more examples to potentially think otherwise, but that sounds like, best-case scenario, it'd be perceived as comical mood whiplash . If it's handled oddly or poorly, it'll probably just be confusing. Hitting the mark! Mood whiplash is what I'm talking about. You have some characters...

Is changing frequently the mood of a scene a bad practice?

Having some relaxing tea party, then a tornado arrives and while everyone is panicking, the playful girl of the crew is having fun. That makes everyone relax while still spinning in the air. One of the party members feels nostalgic and start crying, having some flashbacks about his/her childhood an...

Re: Training readers' anticipation

Thanks everyone for your entry. I do myself enjoy the most thinking about where plots could lead to. Many outcomes exists just by being hinted but they actually never happen and I find that awesome. Remember: The reader wants to know what happens next, but that doesn't always mean that it's better t...

Re: Change the name of the game or not?

You could name it after some meaningful place or character that is new in the alternate visual novel. Buy I agree that Your Affection is a great name for it.

Training readers' anticipation

How much lines to throw to teach the readers possible consequences so they build anticipation?
I'm aware about showing instead telling, for round off the sharpness.

Starting with the pinnacle, then gluing highlights

Hello, Isonana Rasumi here. My thoughts this time has driven me to this subject. When you build something you start with a "base", then you build upon it, right? As a fun example, I have a rhyme here: On the whereabouts was no way out in sight to escape, meaning that what she was told by her mate wa...

Re: What do you prefer in an otome?

Separate routes definitely. I love to know how each person is separately by spending time together. Marrying/sharing rooms with everybody seems a bit messy. I can't cope with so many people having fun at the same room. That scatter my feelings.

Re: ♥ ♠ Ace Jam ♠ ♥ (January 1st-31st) - game jam about putting asexual characters in primary roles

I think I'm asexual, also I want to write about sex in a non-erotic way so yes, I think it's my chance. I want to see more asexual characters in games too. Months ago I researched about asexual protagonists at vndb , finding so few asexual relevant characters on VN (you know, it's like how TV Tropes...
