Otakon 2014

I saw a post for AnimeFest, so I figured it may be good to start one for Otakon as well. Coming up quickly (August 8-10), Otakon is an anime convention in Baltimore, MD. Anyone else here attending?

Re: Thinning ink lines

Thank you both for the replies! Desu_Cake, once I get my PC fixed, I think I will get SAI (I'm on a Mac laptop now).

Thinning ink lines

Hey LSF! This might be a really basic question, but it's one I struggle with (along with jagged lines). I'm trying to improve my digital drawing skills and get used to using the tablet and various software. I tend to work with thicker lines for sketching, but also with inking because I find the thin...

Re: First Steps in Commercial Games

A lot of really interesting discussion. I know this is a bit late, but since I don't think I've seen it mentioned, I'll add this thought: For me, the more places I have to input credit card info, the lesss I am tempted to go for a paid product over a free one. This is more superstitious than logical...

Little Busters anime

I just finished the first season of the anime. Since the Refrain anime is supposed to be coming in October, I wanted to make a thread and see what people thought of the first season and how they feel about the sequel. I've been wanting to play the VN for years, but after I saw an anime was getting m...

Re: Danganronpa: Hope's Academy and Despair's Students

So excited for this and Steins;Gate getting announced, not to mention ToX2! It's a great day to be a niche game fan. Now I'm debating whether or not I should watch the DanganRonpa anime or wait. I'd rather the play the source material first...

Re: no-one has to die. [mystery] [PLAY ONLINE NOW]

Impressive game. So few graphics were needed to tell such an intriguing story. I agree that I like how the endings all tied together at the end.
It reminded me of what I liked about Ever17


The puzzles added in at each level also kept me engaged. Nicely done!

Re: Pick the forum members' brains for your game :)

Great thread idea, BL! Reminds me of the Research forum on the NaNoWriMo site. I'm sure I'll be back with some questions soon. I guess I have one - in the Japanese countryside, is there enough space to build a mansion (in the English sense of the word)? Sure. If your character is wealthy enough for ...

Re: Should Adversity strike again?

I'd consider joining again, but it might be nice if it wasn't a competition, just (potentially anonymous) creations being compared and discussed without any need for posturing over which one is 'the best'. But that's just me. That would be pretty cool and would take away the need to ensure or creat...

Re: Should Adversity strike again?

I certainly hope so!! The feedback I got from entering last year was extremely helpful and I was able to see where I struggle and how to improve. It took away the need for me to worry about art and music so I could focus solely on the writing. In terms of the judging component - I do agree it's toug...

Re: Horror Story Protagonists?

I don't think there's really one "right" answer - especially not knowing more about your plot. merdeamour makes a good point in that a well-done predefined character can be just as immersive (if not more) than the blank slate. I think how you go about writing the story also makes a big difference. T...

Take Me With You [GxB] [NaNoRenO 2013]

http://sakurairomemori.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/smallertmwyv3.png It's the year 2003 and an odd letter prompts 15-year-old Lisa to attempt a trip to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, in the hopes of reuniting with her missing father. However, lack of a car, license, or significant funds ma...
