Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

Unless it's this one , because you can never have too much of him. *swoon* If Black Jack was my doctor, I would constantly make up excuses to go see him. <3 Me too. :twisted: "You fell out of a window and broke your arm... again ?" You guys do know that Black Jack charges an arm and a leg - sometim...

Re: Ideas Dump

That reminds me of an idea that I've had for a while. You know how in almost all horror movies, it's from the point of view of the recon team, after all the scientists have been killed? Instead, you play as one of the scientists. It would start as a slice of life, but then the monster/zombie/alien ...

Re: Print command and Ren'Py

Here's the code I tried: python: for ore in mine1.available_ore: if ore.ore_mined: <renpy.say("You mined some [ore.ore_item.name].")> successful_mining = True else: pass and python: for ore in mine1.available_ore: if ore.ore_mined: <renpy.say>("You mined some [ore.ore_item.name].") successful_mining...

You forgot the 4th archetype: A cool, loner high school student who can't stop himself snarking at everything and anything.

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

From a game design perspective, IMO, that is similar to how all (console) role-playing games start with your character being a level 1 nobody who needs to grind your way up to become the hero of <insert world here>. Because players want a sense of progress and accomplishment from working their way t...

Re: Print command and Ren'Py

Sorry, I take back the last statement. My workaround did not work. Here's the code in question: python: for ore in mine1.available_ore: if ore.ore_mined: "You mined some [ore.ore_item.name]." successful_mining = True else: pass What I want to achieve is to pop up a message announcing that the player...

Re: Can you make a living as visual novels indie developer?

Five years ago I asked myself the same question, but in regard to literature. At that time I have just written my first novel, after literally thousands of working hours, and was thinking if I could sell it and make some $$$ like Christopher Paulini. I was then shown rather embarrassingly how that i...

Re: Truth about AAA-video-games industry working-condition

I am not surprised. Any job that has "art" anywhere in its title, including the most glamorous like films and music, is paved with the blood, toil and sweat of nameless heroes i.e. art school graduates. That's because art producing is, for the most part, a risky business AND requires a ton of effort...

Re: Kickstarter J-RPG

Wow, that Unemployment game... $10,500 raised for a 2 and a bit hour RPG Maker game using almost purely the stock graphics and stock coding (battle system and so on)? He's added custom music, but still... For a commercial game, I'd really expect to see at least a custom tileset and sprites... And p...

Re: Kickstarter J-RPG

I would chalk it down to humanity's arguably inherent slant towards hipsterism. Sure, supporting and buying mainstream projects is surefire and all, but that's like, so mainstream ! Everyone knows that indie gaming is the future of the PC gamer master race, so good monies should go to PC indie devs,...

Re: Has OELVN development peaked?

I disagree completely. I think KS is a step in the *right* direction. It shows the English-speaking world that visual novels are not that weird Japanese thing with piss-poor wish-fulfilment writing that panders to shut-in perverted basement dwellers who cannot get laid. Though, in that regard it cou...

"You know, it would probably not be so hot if somewhere down the line I actually got famous, then someone found these details and used them to make fun of me."
