Re: Game with Typed In Conversation

It's only partially relevant I suppose, but have you seen the recent AI Dungeon 2 stuff? A very interesting parser based experiment haha I feel like people have already hit most of the notes for what would be required out of a type and play conversational game. I agree that keeping it short would be...

Re: Bee-Side [GxG][Romance/Comedy][Yuri Game Jam 2019][DEMO]

Oh hey, first of all, congrats on publishing (what looks to be) your first game! Everything was really cute and sweet, which seems fitting for the Yuri Game Jam haha. I just noticed you have a soundcloud, did you make the music yourself? If so, that's definitely something I think you should mention ...

Re: Bad Accidents Playtesting

Hey, congrats on getting a demo put together and sharing it with people! That's always a great first step to take as far as making a game goes, and it can be harder to put yourself out there than people would expect haha. Even without the art/music assets, I think there's still a lot you can get out...

Re: Help! TypeError: %c requires int or char

First of all, it may be helpful to people reading the thread if you wrap big chunks of code in a code tag! Otherwise it can be a little hard to read. (For example, your error says it's on line 61, but without line numbers it's hard to tell at a glance where the issue is) Since I'm on my phone and ca...

Re: How hard can it be to write a novel?[short][Free]

Oh woah, I know the organizer of NaNoTwiMo so it's super cool to see an entry for it posted. Congrats on submitting something! I like your use of framing things (like the title screen and the TV interview), it's a really neat idea! I also like your interpretation of the theme haha, very on the nose.

Re: Help with bust/waist/hip measurement

I would also recommend against referencing anime measurements, like Imperf3kt said. Honestly it's kind of distracting when a game/show whips out some totally ridiculous measurement. I feel like the clothing measurements thing is a good starting point, but I think you should also consider what you wa...

Re: Rollback issue

I haven't tested it, but it seems to me like the in_rollback() function gives you a pretty useful tool to deal with this (if you can check if the game is rolled back before calling your function, it seems like it should do it). That said, I'm not entirely sure I understand how your music function is...

Re: Blankspace [Mystery/Puzzle/Escape Room][BxG]

Oh hell yeah, I'm always excited for mystery games (particularly with the subgenre escape room haha) so I'm looking forward to this. Also I appreciate when games respect my time and make themselves short, so 2-4 hours sounds great. I always like the idea of doing background in 3d too, and yours look...

Re: Chess game?

I'm also working on a chess minigame, the itch.io engine is super useful! (And the code is intentionally unarchived, I believe). In the public domain and everything. Thanks for the link, even though it wasn't even my question haha. Looking into it, you can also find the code/github for it here

Re: Shout For Joy, Share Your Happiness

Feeling pretty good! I just got done demoing one of my games at a local science museum all weekend, and the first draft of the script for my VN should be done by Wednesday (I've done a ton of small digital projects, but I'm excited to work on something that'll take someone longer than an hour to fin...

Re: Ignis VN [Medieval|Fantasy|Fairytale Inspired][DEMO]

I love it when a VN has a story that is immediately compelling! You always see a bunch of 'fairytales... except edgy' stories, but I really like the direction this seems to be going. The art definitely adds to it too, I'm looking forward to the release! (Also I hope you're feeling better)

Re: Fast pace stories or drawn out stories?

This is probably obvious, but for me a lot of it is in quality. If it's Not Good, then I prefer it to just be over sooner... But those really great stories that go on for ages are some of my favorites. I remember after I finished playing Umineko (over the course of a few months) I just sat there thi...

Re: Pre-demo tips anyone? (please help)

It seems to me that wondering if your following is big enough to release a demo is kind of self defeating? Like I feel like one of the draws of a demo is that it is something to show people what you're working on so they'll want to see more. Definitely include links to your social media presence if ...

Re: Iterative updates and old save files

Adding new things should be fine, you just don't want to be in a situation where the game is looking for something that doesn't exist from a previous iteration
