Re: Because We're Here - Act I [GxB] [War] [History-ish] [Steam] [Commercial]

This looks great! Congratulations on the release. How many acts do you have planned? I tend to prefer to wait for episodic stories to be done before I start them, so I don't end up waiting around in between installments and forgetting what happened in the last one by the time a new one comes out. I'...

Re: Art Asset Alternative?

The biggest issue you might have with using Sims screenshots in your final product is that it might be considered copyright infringement. A lot of companies turn a blind eye to free fan works, and Dating Sims seems to have been around for a while without getting a cease-and-desist notice or anything...

Re: Showing text at a bunch of different positions

Okay, I followed the documentation and now my code looks a bit like this: show text "Blah blah blah." at textposition1 pause show text "Words words words." at textposition2 pause Unfortunately, each time it shows a new line, it seems to automatically hide the previous line, even though I didn't tell...

Showing text at a bunch of different positions

I'm still a beginner at Ren'Py, thanks in advance to anyone who can help me figure this out! There's a part in a project I'm working on where I want a bunch of different lines of text to pop up at different parts of the screen. Here's a quick mockup of what I'm trying to accomplish: example.png I wa...

Re: 18+ Dating VN: How Important are Hentai CGs?

I think it depends on what the focus of your story is, as well as what audience you're going for. If you're writing a romance story that includes scenes in which the characters have sex because that's relevant to the plot and their relationship, I think milder, less explicit CGs would be fine. I per...

Re: Discussion about visual novel unlockables

I think an unlockable CG gallery is pretty standard. In a VN with multiple routes, it can be a great way to find an estimate of how much you have left and whether you're missing anything, and it's also nice to just look at the pretty art again. I also tend to really like VNs with an enforced route o...

Re: Public Domain Photos [78]

Hey Alte! Thanks for putting this and many other helpful lists together. I've been clicking through the links and it seems like a few of them are broken now, though - so far, Peekspace, Lock and Stock, and free-images.cc. The Crow the Stone domain also seems like it leads to some kind of legal blog ...

Re: Historical VNS and disclaimers?

I don't know anything about Moroccan history, but I'd love to learn a bit about it through a VN! If you're worried about dealing with complex issues that a lot of people have different perspectives on, why not have different characters in the story express those different perspectives as well? You c...

Re: What the Heart Wants [GxG] [Slice of Life] [Drama]

This sounds great! I love games with LGBTQ characters and also meta/parody type plots. For your second question, if you were to just to call it an otome without any more detail I think it might confuse some people who would be hoping that means they can date the guys. But calling it an "otome parody...

Re: Mordred [Short KN, gothic suspense, commercial]

This sounds really interesting! Will you be releasing it for PC as well? I might just be intrigued enough to get the mobile version, but I prefer reading on my laptop.

Re: Random Question-World interacting otome

It could definitely be a cool addition to the game if it's well-integrated in the story. For instance, if you already plan to give the player a choice between going to different locations or hanging out with different characters, doing it through map movement could make it a little more immersive. E...

Re: Can I play these two different transitions at the same time?

Thanks for the help everyone! Kivik's suggestion to turn it into an animation works, but I'll also try Qlara's version. Edit: I've tried Qlara's version and it seems like it works! For whatever reason, defining the sun moving transtion the way she did will work at the same time as the background tra...
