Re: One-Shot Characters

I also think that you should try to have the minimum amount of characters possible. The more roles a character plays, the meatier they get, but if they're doing too many things, the reader may get overwhelmed with how involved a multi-role character could be. At the point when it's too complicated f...

Re: Thoughts on Alternative Choice Mechanics?

Wow, I'd love to play those :0 would you happen to remember their names? It'd be rather useful for other readers to get some exposure to that kind of thing :D

Re: Thoughts on Alternative Choice Mechanics?

I also believe Ace Attorney is a VN. It asks you to think about the story and use the story to solve problems in the game. Where I think it might stray too far from being a VN is when mechanical skill is a heavy requirement to access part of the story. If a player needs to develop mechanical skills ...

Re: Thoughts on Alternative Choice Mechanics?

That's really encouraging! I completely forgot about Danganronpa, but I totally get what you mean. I think that means Ace Attorney would count too.

Thoughts on Alternative Choice Mechanics?

I had this discussion once about whether VA-11 was a VN. The other person was adamant that it was not a VN because choices weren't made using the normal VN choice A,B,C,... menu. Long Live the Queen I'd say is also a VN. For those that don't know, VA-11 is highly dialogue based, like VNs, but the pl...

Re: Gameplay Effecting Choices vs World Building Choices?

While VNs are extremely story driven, things added that don't affect the story are more than ok. I'd say they're necessary, even. In Persona 5, they have fully animated transitions between menu items when you pause. It's so extra, and contributes nothing to the story, but it contributes to the game ...
