Re: To Clannad (or Key) fans

And that's the entire point of my previous post. Most anime adaption from Visual Novel are flawed since in most cases, the anime with its limited screentime loses the naturalness of VN with its -almost unlimited- amount of text available. I assume that Clannad and other Kyoto Animation release are n...

Re: Ever 17

Yeah but it's not like mystery and sci-fi genre aren't prohibited to minors.. I think it's more to the philosophical discussion and young-adult main characters than the general mood.

IIRC, one of C;H translator is still thirteen..

Re: Doujin...

Azure, one game title come to my mind in case you haven't played it yet: The P K Girl . For strict definition it's not a doujin game, but amateur/indie game made by non-Japanese with adventure, puzzle, and bishoujo elements. Consider it a visual novel with classic adventure interface; type 'go north...

Re: Doomfest's stuff

It seems like there are two images--one finished grass background and one character sprite--mashed directly instead one unified artwork. She looks floating instead of laying on grass. The solution is to shade the grass/floor according to the light source and shadow made by the character, therefore t...

Re: Aquae ~Crystal Clear Waters~ [10-4-08] SCREENIEEEEE!!!!

Instead of making the bg match with the anime sprites, why not do otherwise? I see potential in making thinner and colored outlines, along with soft graduation for shading.

You guys are going steadily so keep it up ^^

Re: To Clannad (or Key) fans

My opinion is the first episode has double function; as re-introductory for all characters by using the comedic baseball minigame part of the VN; second to set up the general mood for the overall season with hints of drama and remisnisce instead jump straight to stories. For KyoAni (Kyoto Animation)...

Re: To Clannad (or Key) fans

CLANNAD ~AFTER STORY~ episode one has been out for those who didn't know and those who are avid Clannad fans. The series got twenty four episodes so Suzumiya Haruhi fans must be more patient to obtain season two. Dunno if this is a good place for discussion if anyone want to. My opinion about After...

Re: Doujin...

I was confused whether 'motor skills are sorely lacking' means you don't want dexterity-based games or you want more of it. But hope the game is as satisfying as what you expect^^ Nowadays it's hard to find those kind of JRPG console experience since most are experimental (Persona 3 & 4, .hack//G.U....

Re: Doujin...

Motor skills sorely lacking... for a game? You mean you want one that gives the experience of console adventure and RPG game? The friend who is dojin game player I told you about is playing Recet tear at the moment, and looks like it's suited to what you're looking for. Understanding of Japanese lan...

Re: Doujin...

What do you mean of doujin games? There are playable games without any necessity of translation such as Azumanga Volleyball gekiganwing mentioned. Either you're looking for: 1. Fan-translated downloadable games such as Narcissu , A Midsummer's Day Resonance, Collage and True Remembrance 2. Translati...

Re: Online D.A.T.E. : upcoming dating sim mmorpg

There's a Korean MMORPG named Master of Fantasy (at least, as the title adaption in my country is) where your character has a 2D anime sprite/dolls that you can dress up. Similar to Gaia Online and those dressup flash game in DeviantArt. Your character, both the full body pose anime character at sta...

Re: To Clannad (or Key) fans

It's just about the difference between the VN and anime's Nagisa (from Clannad). Also, are Key's works touching or just cliche? Check it out if you have a few minutes to spare. Thanks . I like to think that it's just another interpretation of Nagisa's character. My Nagisa (my interpretation of Nagi...

Re: Best character in a game? NOT THE PROTAGONIST!

Well I won't lie. My choice varies depending on what I've been playing/reading recently. One character I like a lot is Kawana Misaki from ONE - To the Radiant Season. Her arc was very touching 8). Kinda off-topic, but is it really true there's a translation or english patch for the game? *hopeful e...

Re: Moonlight Walks Remake

Well, those are the revised backgrounds.
Oh. Perhaps, I expect something more glittery and have painting-ish look. It might unnecessarily distract player's attention though. :D

Re: Moonlight Walks Remake

No revision or retouching on the background images to complete the new art? :D

Way baaack then when I just discover Ren'py, I found myself not able to complete the game because of the art [still that choosy]. A remake? Obviously will play then 8D.
