Re: BAKED:MAGIC [GxG][Yuri Jam][Free][Demo]

1. What do you think of the characters? Are they likeable? Yes! I think all of the characters so far are likeable. I like how Lana is calm and collected, but still has an attitude to her. Her personality is distinct from Jayne, despite them both being quite composed, which is nice to see. There's s...

Re: Turning a dervitive work into an original one

Considering this is Homestuck we're talking about, a webcomic that I can't begin to wrap my head around, you'll really need to make sure your universe can really stand on its own two feet. Do your character's motivations still make sense if you strip away all of the stuff that won't be able to be in...

Re: Writing in 2nd Person?

Second person definitely works better when there's a definite personality. Things that the player wouldn't be able to influence because that's just the way the character is. Second person also works when it's all objective description, things that don't require you to explain what emotion the charac...

Re: !Opinions Needed!- would you play a game with this type of art?

You have quite a nice style, and I would definitely play a Visual Novel with art like that! I agree with everything that has been said. This might already be the case but, I would like to add that you should make sure most parts of the face (eyes, mouth, maybe the hair) should be on seperate layers ...

Re: Taking over someone's WIPs?

Yeah, I agree that you should definitely talk to your friend more about this. This doesn't seem like a situation where one person just takes the WIPs and that's the end of discussion. Or maybe it ultimately is, and they don't care what comes of their ideas because they're not going to use them anywa...

Re: How do you write the manuscript of a visual novel?

Twine is definitely my preferred method because of how you can visually see how everything branches out. Not only that, but because it's an interactive fiction tool of it's own, you can define variables and if statements. In other words, you can have an playable outline! When I work with others, I f...

Re: How would you shade this part (hair)? @_@

Nice work so far! I notice you said the light source is "a bit higher than her height" but you didn't specify what direction. If it's coming from the right, the green circled area makes sense. However, the highlights coming from the left in the section above it, which would indicate that some light ...

Re: How to make a socially awkward character...interesting??

I think the first question that came into my head when I read your post was "why is the MC dating him in the first place?" Obviously, socially awkward characters are fine, and I'm not saying it doesn't make sense he is. However, the fact that the MC is already dating him means that they've probably ...

Re: Survey: Preferred Sprite Style

Yeah, thigh to head is generally the best option. It means that the legs will be obscured by the textbox, allowing the reader to have a clear view of the waist and up. You always have to keep the textbox in mind. Depending on the game, other proportions might not be out of the question. For instance...

Re: What do you think about a story without a hero or a villain

That's definitely feasible. As others have said, you're talking about morally grey characters, though I'd add onto Katy's point that the characters could be Chaotic Neutral or Lawful Neutral as well as True Neutral. I'm curious though. Even if they're not a hero and a villain in the traditional sens...

Re: Discouraging Lack of Art Skills

I agree with everyone that has posted. Art is something that you can only improve through practise. If you're fine with not using your art, or indeed not having the characters look just as you imagine them there are Creative Commons assets that you can use. You can also alter Creative Commons assets...

Re: How to not favor a certain character in writing?

Personally I think it's natural that the childhood friend route comes off as more favoured. It's not unheard of, for instance, for the childhood route to end in marriage, where other routes merely end with them happily dating. Honestly I'd raise my eyebrow at the MC having more chemistry with a comp...
