Re: Combining RPG Maker and Ren'Py?

You can code a very basic RPG-topview engine in Ren'Py thanks to python, but porting directly from RPG maker seems impossible from my perspective. But I was wondering: RPG Maker have some Visual Novel plugins, have you tried them? I have no idea if its work well but maybe give it a try!

Re: The Hero Of The Prophesy [Free, short, kinetic] [Light, Childish]

Your idea sounds very cute and I like the style! I'm not too fond of the names since naming a character after words which describe their exact personality seems a bit too unbelievable and simple, but maybe it works if the game doesn't take itself seriously/there's a special reason for it. [...] It'...

Re: The Hero Of The Prophesy [Free, short, kinetic] [Light, Childish]

Hi there ! I finished 120 sprites , sketched, inked, colorized and shaded ! As I integrate them in the script is noticed that I will need a few more variation for some dialogues (not an entire pose to make, but just redraw the mouth) plus some color adjustment, but that's ok ; some more won't make a...

Re: The Hero Of The Prophesy [Free, short, kinetic] [Light, Childish]

Character names can be a good way to convey where a story occurs, and when it occurs. For instance, your characters would likely have different names if your story occurred in Mexico or Indonesia. The setting isn't really developed in this story ; It's a medieval fantasy kind of period, but never r...

Re: DDLC is blamed for teenager suicide

I think it's cool from the BBC to invite peoples who have played the game and know what they are talking about, I didn't expect this. Despite that, yeah of course Doki Doki is not the cause at all ; If you ignore the message at the begining it is not Dan's fault. (also the DDLC Background on the sta...

Re: Players name themselves vs. OC character

The only VN that I played who give this choice was a dating sim, " Roommates ", where each gender chosen lead to different scenes, but with a similar storyline. If I remember right the MC had a name but was renameable, but maybe I'm just confusing with something else. Anyway, I really like this comp...

Re: Players name themselves vs. OC character

I really approve what you guys said, very interesting topic. To retake the expression from Chekhov, I'm more in the narrative school. I think that giving the player too much liberty/choices just highlight the fact that they are not really free to experience what they want, and just go through what t...

Re: [ANDROID UPDATE] Vincit, a faceless rest [Free] [Short, Experimental, Friendship] [FR, ENG]

Bonjour ! A little, and probably one of the last, update for Vincit. As part of some grammar correction, I built Vincit for your Android phone ! It was more of an excuse to test the .apk export with Ren’Py, but I hope phone lovers will appreciate it ! If you have any problem with this version please...

Re: Vincit, a faceless rest [Free] [Short, Experimental, Friendship] [FR, ENG]

First, thank you both so much for your nice feedback on my little game. It’s really mean a lot to me, seen your comment make me breathless (literally). I take good note of your opinion to make my next project better. I like the watercolor art! It's an uncommon style for a VN but I thought it was pre...

Re: Adaptations

It cost nothing to ask; If I understand right your project only need their benediction, and as long as you keep your adaptation non commercial there is no reason for them to refuse a fan work to exist. Plus, I think it would be more respectful for the authors. And if for some reasons they say no, yo...

Re: VNs with mute characters?

Bonjour! Shizune from Katawa Shoujo is a great example (and the only that I have) of a mute character. She's portray with a lot of respect, just like the other characters of the game. Do someone have another example?

Re: Unique VN art?

It not only to advertise a french studio, but Nova Box produced a really great example of unique art for a VN. One of their game, Along The Edge , despite being a really good game, have more than 450 hand-made illustrations in an impressionist style. It’s really really unique, and beautifies the exp...

Re: Plot Ideas

Bonjour Ekamu :) I formally believe that ideas are neutral: There’s no bad or good one in my opinion. It may seem a little moralist but the plot you should choose is the one who inspire you the most, or the one on which you have the clearest vision. Some of your idea are very vague ("He discovers se...
