Re: Critique my writing- opening scene

I'm still fairly new here, but it doesn't seem like this would be the best place for critiquing pages of writing. There's this website I used called writing.com where I would post some short stories and ask the community to critique my works. It's a great site and you can often find people who know ...

Re: How do you stay motivated to finish?

I think something that might help is figuring out what exactly your end goal is going to be with your game. This way, you'll clearly have something to work towards. My visual novel is still in the development stage and I'm still writing the story, but after a while I stopped to ask myself "What is t...

Re: Choosing a name for my game?

Honestly, I think coming up with a cool name is the best and the hardest part. This is your chance to capture the mood of your VN and basically give the present nice wrapping paper. I think the title depends on the feel of your VN: is this a serious, maybe dark experience? Is it more comical? A sati...

Re: Free Legal advice

I asked this question on the thread here with more detail, but I didn't think to ask here. https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=54413&p=508pp063#p508063 Basically, I'm wondering if I can use the same transforms (character entrances and hops), just a small piece of code, from another...

There actually is a lawyer here giving free legal advice on Intellectual Property, but that's not necessarily the same as copyright

Using the Same Transforms from Other VNs?

So I like to open up the Ren'Py files in VNs and see how they work and what strings of code were used, such as Dan Salvato's Doki Doki Literature Club, in order to learn how to code on my own. I really like how smooth the DDLC transforms are and I'm planning on practicing with them and changing valu...

Re: [OPEN] Julioalqae- Anime Character Designer ,CG Sprite, lineart

These are some really great drawings! I'm so glad you're willing to draw mech. Most artists I see aren't willing to do it, but I have a character with mechanical parts, so finding you is like a blessing

I understand that. Thanks for responding! If I need to hire a composer in the future I'll definitely keep you in mind!

Re: Dedicated Music and Audio Professional [OPEN]

You have some really great content here. I just finished watching your music strategy video on your YouTube channel and I absolutely loved it. I do have one question though: you said that you don't accept non-commercial projects, but if I wanted to hire you as the composer for a visual novel that I ...

Re: Full time composer looking for work [Android Orchestra]

Wow, these are some incredibly good compositions. By any chance, do you make any slower emotional pieces, or is your specialty cinematic orchestra?

Re: [OPEN] Backgrounds / Animated BGs artist for hire

How much extra do you charge for animated backgrounds? I think animated ones would bring more life to my visual novel than static ones

Re: [OPEN] Sprite/ Character Artist (FREE and paid)

I enjoyed working with you on the commission. You seem professional in demeanor, which I appreciate, and I love the fact that you asked questions about my character, such as her background and the visual novel I plan to put her in. It shows that you put a lot of thought into the character design. I ...

Re: [OPEN] Sprite/ Character Artist (FREE and paid)

Would you be willing to draw character art instead of sprites? I’m currently writing the story and some code for a VN I’m making. Even though I’m not ready for full fledged sprites, I’d love a visual representation of a character or two. I’ll understand if you only want to draw for more developed pr...

Re: Players name themselves vs. OC character

Assuming that you give the protagonist of your story a name, think about who he is and what his goals are. Write down notes for story purposes. Ask yourself things such as "What specific things does he wants to achieve? What's keeping him from those goals?" as well as "Who are his friends, family, ...

Re: What was the first visual novel you played?

Lol I don't recognize any of these titles. I started with Katawa Shoujo and DDLC at about the same time and now I'm working through Lucid9. Like how I started with anime, I'm kinda just going through the more mainstream ones atm
