Re: Panic Pure [Drama, Psychological, Romance, BxG]

I remember your short project "Carin" from a year or so back. It's really cool to see how it's grown since the initial release. c: How do you feel about visual novels that deviate from the usual "anime" aesthetic?: I like to see new art styles. Your 3D models are gorgeous - I don't see a lot of it ...

I love the renewed aesthetic, that UI is smooth and the character art looks wonderful.

Re: Idiot Wind [Music, B x G, Dating Sim]

I've been brainstorming the backstory that lead up to the actual present-day setting of the story and thinking of new mechanic that might be difficult to implement. The back story simply being that the MC who has moved on from music after seven years in the US is a mechanic now, though he still chec...

Re: Making Stories and Characters Vibrant and Fun?

Widdershins - your advice is extremely thought-provoking and helpful. Especially that last bit which I'll definitely try my hand at. Mammon - I'll definitely put more stock into having satellite characters like that. I generally dislike them but with more thought they can add flavor to a story. I ne...

Re: Making Stories and Characters Vibrant and Fun?

The biggest thing with making characters come alive is banter between them. What do they do when things aren't serious? If they're always in serious mode, it can come across as bland, with characters only existing to further the plot and story. For as much fault as I found with Fate/Stay Night when...

Re: Making Stories and Characters Vibrant and Fun?

Maybe think more about writing jokes or comedy. Start reading comedy articles, writings, whatever. I'm writing a VN that's very realistic and deals with a lot of heavy themes like loss and death, but my writing style tends to be fairly humorous at times, since I have a background in comedic writing...

Making Stories and Characters Vibrant and Fun?

Hi. I have a dilemma. I have difficulty making a story interactive and fun. My style of writing has always been dark, heavy-handed and melancholic. I always go for themes and characters that are very fringe, morally-questionable, and psychological in nature. But what I began to realize is that even ...

Re: Creepy Lily [Horror][NaNo18]

Damn, I was really looking forward to this one. I hope you get at it again in the future, it has potential. If you get overwhelmed while writing it again, from one one-man dev to another, let me know.

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

I use a couple of things that massively improve Twitter. First, I use the uBlock Origin extension to adblock the entire web, so that helps. But I also use a few of its features to de-junk twitter. You can go to the options, My Filters, and add: twitter.com##[data-suggestion-json*=ActivityTweet] twi...

Re: Palm-of-the Hand Stories [Anthology, Slice of Life, Drama, Psychological]

I'm writing the new Carin story now after a bit of time away from it. This one will focus on how the two protagonists, K and Carin, met and will be longer than the first one. I'm planning on taking my time with this one so that it is more polished, engaging and satisfying than the former. Meanwhile,...

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

I dread using Twitter to promote anything because being there longer than a second is enough to erode my sanity and faith in humanity. It's such a snarky, backstabbing and overall negative environment that I can't willingly put myself in at this point in time. It's like opening up a furnace of every...

Re: Please Don't Let Me Be So Understood [Music, Dating Sim]

1. I like the premise, I can see these more dark themed routes with obsession cutting into subjects like identity and being a role-model. Perhaps it may also give a good metagaming or deconstruction of how the MC in a VN is usually the centre that decides the personality and life of the cast simply...
