Re: Moe Escape [Escape the room, Psychological, Horror, Cute

Just downloaded and played it. I see why it's tagged horror now. :V It was fairly fun, but it felt a bit too linear, as in, there was only one use for each item, and it's pretty obvious what it is. It made the game feel a bit too easy. The parchment was a pretty damn good puzzle, but I've played so ...

Re: Discussion: Protagonists and showing them?

There are two reasons to have an invisible MC. One is, as others have said, to make it possible for a self-insert, which is terrible and should never be done ever. The other is to reinforce the idea that you're viewing things from inside the MCs head, which... makes sense, seeing as over 90% of VNs ...

Re: Regarding School Life Theme

Objectively speaking, there's absolutely nothing wrong with having a story centred around school life. It has a lot of things going for it, like the ability to have characters with a large variety of personality traits and interests, a reason to have to see each-other every day, and plenty of change...

Re: Music while writing?

It depends where I am in the story. If I'm working on an early draft where the goal is just to get the scene in my head written down, I like to listen to fast-paced rock or metal. It really helps get the words flowing. On later drafts I either don't listen to anything, or listen to something without...

Re: Working Solo or ...

I prefer working solo, but only because I'm terrible at working in a team. Well, that and the fact that I get embarrased talking about my ideas before they're fully formed. It's something I need to get over.

Re: Do good games need bad ends?

I find that bad ends help give consequences to the character's (and player's) choices. Like, if the game is to reward you for making the right choice, it needs to punish you for making the wrong choice. (said punishment may be just withholding the reward) Without some "less good" endings, it can mak...

Re: Food for thought - "Replay Value"

Funnily enough, I was thinking about exactly this just last night. I just managed to get the true end to Steins;Gate, and right now, the last thing I want to do is replay Steins;Gate, because it forced me to replay chapters 4-10 twice, in order to reach all the endings. I wouldn't have minded, but f...

Re: What kind of puzzles do you like in your Adventure games

Puzzles with more than one solution. I like it if in a game, something that I noticed earlier on becomes a good hint to the solution, and yet I don't like it if the game forces me to be on the lookout and committing every single last thing to memory, just in case it's necessary to solve a puzzle. Fo...
