Re: ADVaNCE Visual Novel Zine 01 now out!

Yay, finished! Thank you so much for featuring my article! And then... Shock! :) The review for The Photographer by Ran S. was as unexpected as it was wonderful to read, especially as it picked up on some of the small nuances I hoped would add to the experience - and Taleweaver I'm sure will be equa...

Helena's Rejection [SuNoFes 2016] [Psychological]

Helena's Rejection is a short visual novel where a writer completes his biography of prominent industry person Helena Kastakitis. However there is something about the book that Helena disagrees with. Thank you Chozogal (art) and paradigmshifty (music) for being a part of the project! You can get the...

Re: Summer Novel Festival [Jul. - Aug. Game Jam]

chocoberrie >> there is a itch.io page, where you'd submit your VN in the end.

And good luck with your project, especially if it's the first, it's the best feeling to finally have made one :)

Re: Summer Novel Festival [Jul. - Aug. Game Jam]

I am definitely joining this jam, and one or two more people I know on Twitter are working on their VNs, too. It's kind of been a bit quiet around it even though it just started, so I just wanted to encourage more people - if you'd like to join with a small project, it's a very relaxed 2-month thing...

Re: The Buzz - a visual novel podcast

Thanks so much for listening, everyone - it's great to get these small pieces of feedback, it's very motivating for us! We really try to make the topics universal, so that it doesn't really matter if you're "behind", or only listened to those episodes that discuss topics that are relevant to you at ...

Re: StoryDevs — a site for finding VN devs

@Tempus - I would maybe suggest a "producer" skill, or something in the project management area, meaning a person who would manage the team, set up collaboration and see to it that things are running etc. I am occasionally thinking of having a project where all I do is manage and other people do the...

Re: The Buzz - a visual novel podcast

Thank you for those kind words! I'd say we have several types of episodes, the very topical ones which themselves can be split into philosophical and practical, and then there are the episodes where it's less structured - and these are needed, too, because those large topical episodes are often exha...

Re: The Buzz - a visual novel podcast

Just a short update, we've already recorded and released 24 episodes, and if you haven't listened to the podcast recently, maybe give it a try - our latest episode features a discussion with PyTom, and we discuss the EVN community and these forums specifically. I also updated and simplified the firs...

Re: Temperance [NaNoRenO 2016] [drama]

It would be fairly weird to say, but I was writing the review out of memory (we actually do not like replaying parts of the game over and over just to review something. The visual novel would lose its charm for us. I should have taken down notes, though... I actually appreciate this on a certain le...

Re: The Photographer [NaNoRenO 2016] [relationships]

I particularly love the art direction - the split screen, the way of showing narrative perspective without using any words. I suppose that's something I, as a writer, really look up to. I guess it worked out well, then - I remember I came up with this layout in my head while we were Skype chatting ...

FonaCall >> Thank you for that thoughtful review! Regarding your theme discussion, I did actually want to create a couple who do not have / do not choose not to rely on much support. I also agree with your points about the parents being mostly "responsible" for the situation. Though I will have to s...

Re: The Photographer [NaNoRenO 2016] [relationships]

Thank you for playing, happy you liked it... A minor (gameplay) nitpick, though: it might just be me, but there were numerous moments in the game's introduction where I intuitively expected the next transition/event/etc. to occur automatically, and so it repeatedly took me a few seconds to realize t...
