Re: Is changing frequently the mood of a scene a bad practice?

From pure description You've provided - yeah it kinda sounds like jumbo thing. But.. execution is key. I'd be rather carefull though, wage Your ability to pull this off. Maybe try to focus on 3 changes, give them purpose/context and I'd also try to reflect on connection of all three. Cause and effec...

Re: Best microphone for voice acting?

I dunno if this is what pros are using, but I have BEHRINGER C-1U microphone and gotta say it is quite solid for what I am doing. Just get pop filter and amplify the input because it can be little to quiet. Its not so expensive so it was best compromise of price/quality for me.

Writing VN's with story structure different than "hero journey"

Hey I am looking for advice in writing VN's based on other plot types than "hero journey" aka "holy grail" aka "quest" aka "most popular story structure ever?" sth like: Comedy, metamorphosis or manhunt. There's plenty of "quest" helpers in net but not many for else types. Especially in realm of VN'...

Re: Manna for Our Malices [Mystery|Horror|Time Loop][Beta available]

I'd say I'd prably deliver what game promises early. Like in Matrix opening: when Trinity escapes You get pretty much everything: villain, CG, slowmo, mood, action and maaany questions. It hooks ppl and sets the tone for rest of movie. In games I feel similar: hook somebody and You have bigger chanc...

Re: Tales From Windy Meadow [Fantasy/Slice of life/Pixel Art] [Steam]

Sad to hear :( I guess that this is quite unusuall take on VN art side. As much as pixel lovers will buy the idea and praise it, rest of VN community probably felt alienated with this approach. You know it is always a risk.

Re: Does the art clash?

Don't mind it so much. You can help with readibility though. BG's seem fighting for attention with CGs, dunno if that's on purpose. I'd give little bit of haze/dust/light scattering in outdoor location. For small indoor locations little blur maybe ? or subglow behind characters. Really even pushing ...

Re: My Burning Heart [BL, KICKSTARTER, DEMO available]

Looks and sounds promising :) Intro is well made imo, logo could get some more readibility though. Just wondering.. why do You try to get so small amount from KS? Are You guys living out of noodles or what ? :D

Re: Pirate Princess: The Sword & The Sea [Otome] [Fantasy]

As for BGs they are bright and nice.
The ship scene have some scale issues though with ship and port/boats though wasn't sure how really big this ship is. Try maybe google some ships paintings or photos and compare of big it should be. Also drop the anchor ;)

Re: What's the best sprite creation method for a beginner?

I wasn't referring to RenPy though. I am not sure if it does support bone-mesh deformations of any sort. I was speaking more in terms of games industry especially as I said in casual space. Depending on how open the Renpy is on coding/plugins work You might be able to add some bone thing functionali...

Re: Gameplay Effecting Choices vs World Building Choices?

Semi pointless choices do make sense if used with clear reason in mind. Not to add random choise though :) Maybe to enhance other choice or feeling, or to add to the character - it can work. It may seem pointless from choosing point of view, but from the deeper meaning / epression / world building /...
