Re: HARK! What size, these Sprites???

I tend to shrink them down a little bit, but I find a good minimum size is 3840x2160. That in mind, I tend to use very simplified backgrounds with that have a limited range of colors, so they're able to remain pretty small in terms of file size overall (which is pretty important with my projects, as...

Re: Is Lupin Still Flirting? [LGBT] [Comedy] [Romance] [NaNoRenO]

Absolutely wonderful~ The watercolor artstyle was such a good choice for this game, and you 100% captured the character of the full cast. Playing this right after a full rewatch of Part 5 was such a treat. Very excited to see what else you put together ^w^

Re: Tips for keeping track of large projects/highly branching games?

Indeed. Unless you already have some existing sprites for your characters, you should avoid making too many assumptions about what expressions you'll be using for each portion of dialogue. In addition, if you're hitting a wall with how to keep track of the various branching points of your game, an a...

Re: Free vs Paid Visual Novels

It depends on accessibility versus what you're hoping to make back. If it's a game that you feel proud of and has the production value that you think is worth the price of admission (whether that's $1, $5, or even $40) then you should definitely put it up for that amount. On the other hand, you have...

Re: Pink Rose [GxB/BXB/Romance] [DEMO is out!]

The premise is an interesting one, and I really like the art style you're going with :> I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for classic shoujo manga visuals, especially the specifics of flower designs and fabric gradients. The hair on Rina in particular is especially well done, I wanted to pick...

Re: Is there a market for Twine games?

This is an older thread, but I thought it'd be worthwhile to include my 2 cents here as well. While Twine doesn't have the same set of robust features that other visual novel tools and engines may provide, it makes up for it in two major ways: it's lightweight nature and benefits of limitation. Whil...

Re: Confession Center [NaNoRenO2021] [LGBTQ+] [Romance] [Free]

Congrats on your release. I love to see LGBT+ games, especially love to see non-binary representations. Thank you! It's my first time making a game in quite awhile, and focusing on that aspect of my identity for the story was a big incentive for me to see it through to the end. I'm currently debati...

Congrats on the successful campaign! Very excited for the release :> It's been a long time since I've backed anything on KS, but the premise and art made it very difficult to ignore this project. I look forward to seeing it all fully come together ^w^

Re: How can you judge what is a "reasonable amount of time" to be working on a game?

What do you mean when you say "scaling back"? You mean taking a step back and trying to find a new way of how to approach this? Scaling back the full game's size and scope is what I meant, though taking a step back can certainly be helpful :) If the time it takes to finish is getting further and fu...

Re: How can you judge what is a "reasonable amount of time" to be working on a game?

It depends on the time you can reasonably devote to a given project. Something to avoid when you're working in your spare time rather than on a project as a full-time job is to assume that you know exactly how much longer it will take to fully complete your game. In my experience, even if you have a...
