Re: Phantom of the Opera Visual Novel~

Since she says you get to choose between the two leading men, and she says she's going to be mostly following the original main plot, I assume that it's most probably Christine.

Re: Newbie question: Art or writing? Which is more important

There are games like that... and then there are games with superb background music that make you want to buy the entire game soundtrack. Voice acting can be a lovely enhancement to a VN too, by the way, if done right. I remember when I was playing Animamundi, for instance, the voice acting was an in...

Re: Newbie question: Art or writing? Which is more important

Writing is definitely more important when it comes to visual novels. See the case of Higurashi Naku no Koro ni above, as well as Umineko Naku no Koro ni. Both have terrible art, but epic stories. That said, if you can't draw at all, you can try recruiting artists to work with you in the works in pro...

Re: Otome-related survey

1. If you had a definite female protagonist (with her own not-customizable sprite and a personality) would you like her to: a) Have her own name. b) Have a name, but be able to change it if I want before starting the story. c) Be unnamed, so I can give her any name I want. 2. How much of a plot does...

Re: Really Quick survey on Gaming Tastes

I assume we're talking about a visual novel, since this IS a visual novel forum and all... 1. How much of a completitionist are you? b) I try to get all the endings, but I don't bother to unlock it all. But really, it depends on the game. If it's a game I'm really interested in, I tend to go for hun...

Re: Regarding BL games...

most all of the directors, writers, and producers are men I would agree with you. Again it all goes back to the fact that society is still dominated by men. It seems to me that some people like to think that gender equality is already here and we don't need to do anything more about discrimination ...

Re: Regarding BL games...

If girls like yaoi, there's something wrong with them. @Nish: To clarify I believe the exact opposite (I think it's perfectly natural for girls to like BL); but it is my impression yaoi fangirls are perceived this way in male-dominated communities. In many online communities I have been in where th...

Re: Regarding BL games...

I could easily make the opposite argument, that GL than BL is more accepted because girls are more accepted than boys, men being dirty pigs and all that. You have a point there. But without further evidence, we have no way of supporting either argument. However, you haven't shown that GL is more ac...

Re: Finding a Target Audience

One of my teacher's favorite lines is: "Write with the door closed, rewrite with the door open." Essentially what this means is, when you're first writing your story, write for yourself. Write freely. Forget your audience. Just write whatever you want, however you want. And then, when you have the f...
