I personally think it is a good idea to remove the word "game" from menu's and such in visual novels. I think the experience of playing a visual novel is more similar to reading a book or watching a movie, than it is to playing a game of most other genres. Therefore, I always find it rather awkward ...

Well, mikey, thank you for completely ruining my plans for the past day. There I was, starting to play this 'game', expecting at most a few hours of play. It took me almost twenty. Of course, this is not a bad thing, on the contrary, it's just that if I had known beforehand I might have planned a br...

I must say it is looking quite good. I don't know if you are interested in any bug reports at this time, but I'll just post what I have found here. When I move my arrow over a flower in the "outfit" screen I get an error message. In the draw event for object equip_item, line 29 position 39, the + op...

All right, I have now completed the complete game. It seems I just was not persistent enough in trying all possible combinations of choices... but enough has been said about that. It turns out I had only seen a small fraction of the story yet, and the complete story was really enjoyable. It did have...

False. I have only bought one import game, from the USA, but that was a board game and not a computer game, and it only contained the necessary board, pieces and rules booklet.

The person below me has posted in this thread more than four times.

Well, I have finally found some time to start playing the NaNoRenO games. Congratulations on this game, chronoluminaire. A very nice story and especially some very believable characters. The game really pulled me in, and after playing it once and getting to ending one I spontaniously decided to play...

Well, I have finally found some time to start playing the NaNoRenO games. Let me start with the obvious: the adult jokes. I have to say they seem a bit unrealistic to me. It might be because English is not my native language, but there were times I was just reading the text and not noticing anything...

My opinion in this matter is that you should not force the player to play through all of your paths. I often only play through a game once (of course, I might replay it later). I believe that the purpose of having multiple paths in a story is in the first place to let the player input some of his ow...

PyTom, That was a nice little story. You have convinced me that American Football is not a game one should try to understand. I only played throuh te game one time and got ending 2. This gave me 38 minutes and 5 seconds of enjoyment. I have to add to this that I usually read in a rather modest pace....

On my monitor with default settings I can only see the moon and a vague grey line in moon.jpg, and nothing at all in nomoon.jpg. When I turn the brightness to 100% I can see everything clearly though (the stars and the horizon and the different tones of blue), so the game would not be unplayable, ju...

[this text may contain spoilers] Mikey, I'd just like to congratulate you with yet another wonderful story. I think it was very well put together, you managed to surprise me even in the last true ending I read, and in the end everything fell into place. There is only one thing (story-wise) that both...

The first thing I noticed was, when you first click on a square in the application form, it always selects the upper option, and to select the lower option you have to click twice, which is rather unnatural. Other than that, everything looks nice to me. Good luck on this project. PS - a minor correc...
