Re: The Language of Love [BxG, Romance, SoL]

The art for this was referred to me when I asked for methods on how people show short characters (like children) in VN's, but I didn't realize it was a project in this community! The art is just excellent, and this looks like a really adorable story! Keep it up!

Re: Creating children or other very short characters?

Part of the issue is that she's only 7, which makes me worried the abstracted height difference might still lead to a higher expected age...but that second example is surprisingly effective for some reason. Making just enough room for shoulders does seem pretty reasonable, and doesn't look weird. Ha...

Creating children or other very short characters?

Many visual novels cut character sprites off around the hips, or a little lower, and mine is no exception. But what happens when a character, like a little kid, isn't any taller than the waistline of an adult? Their entire face would be covered by the text box, and even if it wasn't, they'd look pre...

Re: Writing visual novels that are geared toward adults

A lot of good points here. I'm going to focus a little more on the technical side, since no one has talked about that much. Vocabulary. Adults know a lot more words than kids do, and even if they see one they don't understand, they're better at figuring it out through context or looking it up. I thi...

Wow, this looks awesome! First off, welcome! I know, judging by the date on the first post, you've been here for at least a few months now, but it's never too late for a welcome! Or maybe it is. As someone who's also antisocial and bad at self-promotion, I can relate. But I think this project of you...

Re: Up until the end [GxB][Suspense,Romance,Friendship] DEMO

I did a playthrough of your demo! I'll go through your questions here... -Did you enjoy it overall? What did you like the most in the demo? Yes, I did enjoy it! I think what I liked most was how well you handled the tone. The music, sounds, and visuals all feel very cohesive and contribute to a stro...

Re: Summoned [Kinetic][Comedy][BxG][61k Demo][16+] - 1.1.0 Released!

I think the main story idea about someone being summoned for several things, is really good. It has a lot of potential. I do like the cynical character of Flin. I think it's well suited for this story. What makes me lose interest is Steve. I am just not into that type of demon. But I am still curio...

Hey, its the Facebook guy. I will try to make time check this out some time next week :) Sounds awesome though and I was very happy to hear you made the art with Blender. I think I just finished my latest app too, though I need to wait for a translation of the description before I can post it. Than...

Re: Shake/Vibrate Sprite

Hope that helps? Yeah! You make a good point about the randomness, and you're right that moving on two axes in one statement is necessary for this effect. After some experimenting, I've found something I'm quite pleased with: transform shake(rate=0.090): linear rate xoffset 2 yoffset -6 linear rate...

[Solved] Shake/Vibrate Sprite

Hello! I'm trying to figure out a way to make a character sprite shake/vibrate around in place to represent frustration or quivering in fear. I dug around for an answer and found this , and added vertical movement to get this: transform shake: linear 0.090 xoffset -10 linear 0.090 xoffset +0 linear ...

Re: Softwar - Hack VN RPG [BXG] DEMO AVAILABLE!

Alrighty! Played the demo, here are my critiques: First...the sound you hear on the startup menu when you hover your cursor over an option is very high-pitched, and by extension, annoying. I'd compress it or adjust it or something if you can find the time to. Second, I'll second what was said above ...

This looks pretty cool!! I realize I might be in the minority on these forums, but as someone who's not interested in BxB I actually had the opposite reaction to those above - I love the idea of gettin' a good bromance going! Romancing a lady is awesome too, although I think Yui looks rather similar...

Re: Summoned [Kinetic][Comedy][BxG][41k Demo][Trailer][16+]

Updated the demo to 1.0.1! The security guard's name has been changed to David to avoid any confusion with Stan, the lead singer of the rock band. Stan's character sprite was updated to look both more detailed and more masculine. There were also mild dialogue and narrative edits. Attached is an imag...
