Re: furry detective vn! (mystery, furry)

Well, I don't think racial discrimination would be a fresh theme to tackle in a furry story, but I was thinking more along the lines of different species having different harmless quirks. Like what foods they like, how their houses look like etc. Of course, there could always be characters that don'...

Re: Opinions on the current visual novel fanbase/community?

I think it's not limited to visual novels. Almost everything has negative fans. Especially teenagers tend to bash others for what they like and don't like. A rather unpleasant part of their growth into adults. One thing I've noticed that for visual novels, there seems to be less picking apart every ...

Re: Writing woes: Self-pity and lack of motivation

Thanks. On one writing forum I was told that any serious writer, professional or not, writes at least a thousand words every day. That made me stop writing for a good while, but in the end, it was just a recycled piece of Stephen King's advice for those who want to write novels as a day job. It's ju...

Re: My various ideas

I had another idea today and need some feedback: If my main character killing someone who tortured them in the end of the story fits the overall plot and the message to be conveyed better than any other action, but it doesn't sit right with my vision of the character, which is better to sacrifice? I...

Re: School Shooting VN

I think the message that anyone can break down in the wrong conditions can be done without choices and concequences. For example, imagine the best friend of the MC becoming a school shooter. When someone you thought you knew gradually becomes more distant, and in the end, a monster. Still needs care...

Re: Writing woes: Self-pity and lack of motivation

By the way, what do you do when you have lots of ideas and a drive to start working with them all at once? Then comes the time when none of them interest you that much anymore. This repeats about every month.

Re: Dating with... a fish

Yep, I actually didn't like Hatoful Boyfriend either. Too happy-go-lucky for me. I actually was thinking that this would be a balanced view on sexual fantasies and when they start going a bit too far. Thus, the human form of the fish would be just the protagonist's imagination and she would know it....

Re: furry detective vn! (mystery, furry)

Hi!

I like the idea. Are you going to have the species affect the personality of the characters? Also, you could have moments where Clara starts doubting her beliefs (without making the game into a statement about religion, of course).

Re: Writing woes: Self-pity and lack of motivation

Here's what I've managed to write this week. Any feedback is appreciated. Especially on whether there's enough description and if there are any logical holes. Content warnings: murder, mention of suicide (are these needed for this?) Leaky eyes, rotting brains Beginning I knocked on Annie’s door. She...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

I feel like I have too many ideas, and can't decide what to start with. Also, writing happy is totally not my thing. Every single thing I start writing turns out to be a bloody tragedy, and I actually seem to enjoy that. What is wrong with my head? In other news, my aquarium looks so ugly and I can'...

Adaptations

Sorry for making so many different topics today, I'm just buzzing with thoughts that need to get out somehow. Feel free to post other questions about adaptations in this thread. So, there's a novel that I really love, based on my favorite musical album. I know that the guys of the band were happy to...

Re: tips on plotting story for adult visual novel

One thing to remember is that every good story has a theme, a statement it wants to make. What is yours? By this I don't mean that your adult visual novel should be banging the readers on their heads with political agenda (or any other agenda). Just think, what is the heart of this story squeezed in...

Nonfictional VNs

Are there any nonfictional works made with Ren'Py? It could be an autobiography, a DIY guide or even an introduction to mathematics for kids. Yes, I know there's better ways to do all three, but it could be a fun way to practice programming and bring out your first finalized product when the script ...
