Re: VStrife: Virtual Reality Gaming and Personal Problems [Kinetic][Drama]

Since I haven't posted here for a while, just a bit of a dump of what I think I'll be focusing on next for this project. I got really stuck after posting my first chapter here for feedback. https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=50463 (see thread here) But I've been thinking about wh...

Ah yeah! I can show you a bunch of sketches of them!: https://imgur.com/a/I3xTpnR Most of these are from my current sketchbook, which was half drawing class and half personal stuffs. That being said, these are more recent drawings of them, I've actually been working with these characters for a long ...

Re: Looking for Feedback on a First Chapter Draft

Hi airenrin! Thanks for the great response! I'm a bit torn on how to approach the opening, as I've envisioned it several ways over time. I think this version of the opening I wrote is a bit slower and eases the reader in a bit more, but going by your advice of checking out light novels at some point...

Re: VStrife: Virtual Reality Gaming and Personal Problems [Kinetic][Drama]

Thanks so much Zelan! I have a tiny art update, since I'm at a weird spot with writing. https://i.imgur.com/cOS46Q0.png https://i.imgur.com/7p2LJUf.png (Screenshots from image editor) So I finished Clyde's base sprite and created a sketch for Fae! (the new girl you see here ahaha). This is actually ...

Re: Looking for Feedback on a First Chapter Draft

Yeah, I see what you're getting at with earlier introduction of stakes. I think I can write in something like that in the first scene, I've got some conversational stuff in there where I think it would fit comfortably. Thanks for your help! I might post an update at a later point when I tweak/rewrit...

Re: Looking for Feedback on a First Chapter Draft

I really loved the voice. It sounded natural and fun! My primary concern is that I didn't get a particularly strong sense of the stakes. Why does playing the video game matter? (Is there something in particular that rides upon the outcome? If so, that would be awesome to know up front - like if the...

Re: Starting with the pinnacle, then gluing highlights

Stories usually come to me in some sort of thought soup. Usually it starts with a character I want to see, with traits that I find appealing that I want as a character. Then there might be a plot I want to explore in mind, with certain aspects I want in it. But that's just the concept... Eventually ...

VStrife: Virtual Reality Gaming and Personal Problems [Kinetic][Drama]

Hi guys, so I’m in the progress of writing a kinetic novel, that will be called VStrife (unless something odd comes up). A plot summary: The year is 2030, and a virtual reality combat game called VStrife brings lots of players together in tournaments and competitive play. A wannabe-pro group, led by...

Re: What was the first visual novel you played?

My first one was Asagao Academy, back when it was fresh~ I never managed to finish it: I only played Shane's route and then got burnt out trying to actually get a good ending on it. Granted, I was never really into let players in the first place and I was only really playing because my friends were ...

Re: Guestbook

Hi, I'm Wendy. I'm from the US, and encountered this forum looking for info about VN dev. Currently in the process of writing a VN in my spare time, hope to be exposed to even more of them while I'm here :)

No professional website as of now, but I'd at least like to set up a portfolio at some point.
