Re: Psychological pattern/explanation for X-dere-types?

Are you looking for psychological explanations of why people write and enjoy those character types? Or for why someone might act like they do, or both? For the first one, I think a lot of the "dere" types are just exaggerated versions of traits that a lot of real people have. For instance, a tsunder...

Re: Pink Engine: A framework for using Tiled-created orthogonal maps in Ren'py

This sounds really useful! Thanks so much for sharing it with everyone. Having played around with RPGMaker a bit, it sounds like it will be great to be able to determine which layer individual objects are on myself, instead of having that be pre-determined by how the whole tileset is set up. I'll ha...

Re: Dead Man's Rest [BxB, Adventure, Western]

I love mysteries and gay cowboys! I'll be looking forward to this one. How important is historical accuracy (particularly cultural mannerisms) in portraying the setting, when history was rife with racism and other -isms that wouldn't fly today? I think it's totally fine to decide on your own approac...

Re: How do you guys outline your scripts?

I think having it semi-outlined but then ending up straying from the outline when you start writing is a pretty normal thing to have happen! It doesn't mean your outline was wrong, just that your ideas changed and developed more as you worked. A bit of that is probably bound to happen to everyone. T...

Re: Credit Sequence with One Team Member

Hey there! I don’t know how far you are into development, but I think you’ll find that you’ll have others to credit as you go. :) I create all my VNs on my own too (writing, coding and art) but I can’t do music and I get a lot of coding help/advice. In your credits you’ll probably have to credit an...

Re: I Want to Pursue the Mean Side Character! [Kinetic][GxG][Free]

I just finished reading it and it was really cute! Great job with your first VN - I'll be looking forward to seeing your next one. You might want to double-check the programming of your credits page though - I tried to click on the link to your tumblr and got an error message.

Re: Opona [Idol][Psychological Thriller][Comedy]

This sounds like such a cool concept! I'm really interested in seeing what kind of dialogue choices I'll have to avoid saying things that can be taken out of context, and I want to do some dance battles! I'm always excited to see VNs that take place in Canada too.

Re: I'm facing a stone wall on how to finish my visual novel

On the one hand, I would normally encourage someone to write what they want to write without worrying that anyone will judge them for it. Personally, it doesn't bother me at all when some of my friends write weird and dark stories. It's just fiction - writing a character doing something violent cert...

Changing the size of a layered image

I'm trying to learn how to use layered images for the first time, and the images I'm layering for the sprite are all a bit bigger than I need them to be. I'd like them to be a bit smaller in-game, but I'm not entirely sure yet exactly how much smaller, so I'd rather resize the way they're displayed ...

This sounds really cool! I love weird supernatural small town settings and romance options of different genders. Good luck with development - I'm looking forward to seeing the character art!

Re: Looking for a visual novel

This might not be it because the title is different, but I wonder if you might be thinking of Rose of Winter ? Its art style is more cartoony and you pick between four different character routes right near the beginning. I'd recommend it either way since it's very cute! As for other VNs with distinc...
