Re: [DEMO OUT!][Kickstarter][Sci-Fi][RPG/VN] Yomi Alliance - Sci-Fi RPG/Visual Novel

hi, I think one possible reason that you don't get comments is because your characters are pre-rendered and most fans of visual novels here seem to prefer hand drawn I think (?) I just saw your game now. It's been a while that I checked this forum. My own novel is entirely based on pre-rendered grap...

Re: 7th Goddess [pre-rendered][3D][free][mystery][fantasy/modern][DEMO]

I posted a few more updates to the demo. The current content concludes what I consider to be chapter one (out of five) along all possible storylines. All constructive comments are always welcome, thank you. https://imavera.itch.io/7th-goddess

Re: 7th Goddess [pre-rendered][3D][free][mystery][fantasy/modern][DEMO]

The main story line is almost finished now and I started adding choices. As of now, there are choices for the first two days of the story, which is only a small part of the full story but I think it already gives a good impression about the style. For each dialogue line or some specific action from ...

Re: Adventurer's Guild [ Fantasy | Stat-Raising ]

I played the demo for a while and this looks like it works very well. It's amazing to see what you can do with Ren'Py. The town map with selectable locations is nice and adding activities to your schedule looks good and practical. I noticed one possible problem. After you meet the women who gives yo...

Re: The Black Hand [Kinetic][Drama][Gothic][DEMO]

I played the demo and I do like the art style very much. This can definitely keep me interested. I am just wondering about the story setting. It looks kind of comical. Is it going to remain like that, or will it become more "dark" in tone as well? Is this more like a comical approach to the life of ...

Re: 7th Goddess [pre-rendered][3D][free][mystery][fantasy/modern][DEMO]

I posted another update for the demo. It's now over 41k words. I consider this version an important one, because at the end of it, the reader finally learns about many things that are different from what they appeared to be since the beginning. I look forward to hearing from others how they experien...

Re: Justice & Death [Free] [Tragedy, Dark, Drama]

A very interesting concept. I played the demo once. I like the graphic style very much and the music gives a pretty good atmosphere for the type of story.

I wonder in what sense there will be complications related to the choices you make.

Re: 7th Goddess [pre-rendered][3D][free][mystery][fantasy/modern][DEMO]

Just finished playing the demo on my mac .... WOW . . . it sure covers a lot of ground. I found the story to be very interesting, if a bit complicated, and the effect of the 3D art is wonderful! Can't wait to see more. philip Thanks a lot for the comment! It was a bit of a worry to me that the stor...

Re: 7th Goddess [pre-rendered][3D][free][mystery][fantasy/modern][DEMO]

I updated the demo, which now has +33k words. https://imavera.itch.io/7th-goddess As always, I hope some people will want to give it a try and give me some feedback about how they like the story, characters and graphics, music and sound effects. The kinetic version without choices is still far from ...

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

I have played the demo. I didn't read everything. I skipped through a lot. But I did look at all the pictures in the image folder. I have also been reading a bit on your blog. The graphics in 3D are really very good because of the variation in scenes and the immersive experience wih different camera...

Re: Grimm & Tonic: Last Call [Noir][Fantasy][Urban]

This is very interesting. I am trying to figure out what could be the advantage of using Ren JS for making a novel. I am not familiar with Phaser. Is this mainly interesting for web based games with small file size? Are you using free pics / your own photography, or also pre-rendered graphics or dra...

Re: Project Pastorate [Dark adventure in the land of crime and sin] DEMO INCLUDED

Nice animation! How do you make those animations? Is that like an animated gif where you make a series of pictures and then let them play in cycle?

Re: Hunted [Animals][Fantasy][Horror][Free]

I think it's easy enough to read, but I am not sure what you mean by noticing the difference between two characters. The two screens I see have exactly the same color/font??

Re: Yakuza Kiss [GxB] [Romance] [Crime] [Drama]

1) I don't really like the idea of adult for feminine audience, because you are already saying then that it's not for men, so they might not even want to try it. Instead of adult, you could use the word mature maybe? And then use some words that connect with things people know and can make them exci...
