Re: (One more time) From the Top! (v0.5) by Mad Jubal [Gay, BxB, Visual Novel, Ren'Py]

Hello Jubal. Before playing From The Top, the title and the art style immediately brought to mind Coming Out On Top and made me think this was going to be derivative of it. But I played the game and I'm happy to report that I was wrong. I'm overall very impressed with FTT. I thought the art looked n...

Re: Crime Opera: The Butterfly Effect [Banned from Steam] Released!

Here's the article. I bolded the part Steam found objectionable: From the start, the lead developer of Crime Opera: The Butterfly Effect, Sean Bester, wanted his game to be different from the other games in Steam’s sea of often sexually-tinged romance and horror visual novels. This meant it would ha...

Re: 'Daddy Issues' [Gay][Ren'py][Visual Novel][NSFW][18+]

Hi Okalix. I played the game and have some thoughts about it. You can take it or leave. The strongest point of the game for me is the 3D artwork. You can tell by looking at the characters faces that a ridiculous a mount of time was put into them. I also enjoyed the environments. I thought that they ...

Re: BL Wrestling-Based Visual Novel [BxB] [Romance] [Various Topics]

Hey Zex, welcome to the forum. To start, I got say, I love the idea of your project. This is the type of game that I tend to play, and the type I have backed many times on KS. I suggest you have a look through the Recruitment & Services Offered sub-forum. It's the section of the forum where skilled ...

Re: [DEMO RELEASED] Sweet As Magic [BxB][Romance/Fantasy/Drama][Yaoi Jam 2019]

I wondered about the Demo when it didn't show up on Sunday. Anyway, I played it and I answered your Feedback Form. It was so extensive and I so through with it that I honestly can't think of anything to comment about the game I haven't already written on it. :shock:

Re: All Men Are Pigs [BxB][Romance][Comedy][Slice of life][Adult 18+] Demo + Kickstarter coming soon!

I haven't played one second of this game but I already love it to death. I love the sense of humor, how unapologetically GAY this is and, most important to me, how authentically gay this is. It feels like ages since a game in the vein of COOT came out. It's currently checking a lot of boxes for me. ...

Re: Sweet As Magic [BxB][Romance/Fantasy/Drama][Yaoi Jam 2019]

1. Which character interests you the most and why? Ramiel. He's the best looking guy in my opinion. Also I find the idea of a socially awkward incubus interesting because incubus and succubus usually need sex to survive. So I wonder how that will work. 2. Who would you choose to romance first? I'm ...

Do you "play" or "read" Visual Novels?

So... I've always thought of Visual Novels as a genre of Video Games, that included the likes of Life Is Strange and the Telltale games. They are a type of software sold in places like Itch and Steam so to me it was no brainer. Bu T after joining the forum I've seen people talk about how they were g...

Tumblr really is gonna go ahead and commit suicide, huh? I'm sad cause of all the content that will be lost, but good riddance to that cesspool with an unusable UI. RIP , it was not nice knowing you. https://media.giphy.com/media/v9mGcjNVThBZu/giphy.gif

Re: Is this yaoi?

I will not post in this thread anymore, it has already veered enough into Off-Topic territory. (I'm really sorry @NadOtavias ) If anyone would like to continue to discuss Yaoi, make a thread for that. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------...

Re: Is this yaoi?

It's inaccurate to say that BL is just straight women fetishising gay male love, and it feeds into a lot of negative attitudes towards BL fans that have been on the rise over the last few months. No, it is 100% acurate, you're being revisionist. Since the genre's inception the main authors of Boy's...

Re: How do I effectively write tragic and emotional scenes and bad endings?

Sounds mostly good but I'm kinda confused about the MC and love interest arguing during a match. Seems kinda nonsensical. And why would MC even come if they got into a argument? Maybe the MC attended the match because he wanted to patch things up but then things got heated? I don't know if it makes...

Re: How do I effectively write tragic and emotional scenes and bad endings?

I think you should make the Protagonist's presence in the tournament the very reason the Love Interest dies, or the thing that starts the sequence of events that lead to Love Interest's death. Something like: (A)Protagonist attends the tournament. (B)Protagonist and Love Interest are on bad terms (b...

Re: Is this yaoi?

Would this be considered yaoi/BL or bara? I don't think you should label your game actually. The terms Bara and Yaoi sort of lose their meaning in the West so it is pointless to try and fit in to a box that is even clearly defined. I think you should just consider your game a Gay game and that's it...
