Re: Alternative to VAA?

The Voice Actor's Club sounds good for you. They allow mature projects as long as the audition thread is worksafe.

Re: Which option should I go with?

I'm not sure if I'd want to go back and see the other routes if the "true" one was the first. Kind of makes you wonder what's the point. You could begin the true route with the protag making a decision and then they can return to unlock another choice, which branches into a new common route that wou...

Re: What makes a Kickstarter successful?

It really depends on the comment. Sometimes the comment might be a misconception and you can address it privately. If someone said you were trying to rip them off then you can explain that giving money means you get something in return and it's not just asking for donations for a nebulous goal. If ...

Re: Necessary technology?

Actually, those things aren't really necessary per say. You can chat and share documents in a folder all in Google Drive and that's in a browser. ...Also, I tried installing Skype on my laptop a while ago, but then it came with one of those annoying "I'm going to vaguely word stuff so that you'll ge...

Re: Writing casual relationship

Speaking from experience about casual relationships, the best way they can go is when both people are completely honest about what they want and what they're doing from the beginning. It's when one person harbors expectations/feelings the other may not return that misunderstanding and drama occurs.

Re: The Mishka Effect [Nano14] [Time Loop] [Comedy]

Wow! Time travel is ridiculously cool but so complicated that it's almost impossible to do well. You nailed it! This game rocked! And yes, the soundtrack was perfect for setting the mood, especially the Bizzaro theme. Oh, gosh, I can't believe I forgot to mention the soundtrack! It was brilliant. (...

Here's the full soundtrack to the recent NaNoReNo game, The Mishka Effect:

This was a lot of fun to make since it was my first time composing for a visual novel. I'm looking forward to composing for other projects soon as well. :)

How is the anatomy in this picture?

I was told the anatomy in this picture was really bad, but not how or why. I'd really like to know some specifics so that I can consciously avoid making the same mistakes in future drawings. Thanks.

Re: pretty [NaNoRenO 2014] [Paranormal]

So I just finished playing this: I really enjoyed it! The art was really well done, especially the CGs. The story was also nicely paced, although I saw the twist coming a mile away (well, one of them). The music was really nice too, especially the dramatic tracks. I've got a spoilery question though...

Re: Voiced Visual Novel?

I really like the idea of voice acting in visual novels, it's just most of the time I see it being used is for very boring/predictable plots with not much character growth. Unlike visuals, music and writing, voice acting isn't necessary and should ADD something that the aforementioned elements canno...

Re: Is it time lemma soft forums got a new mascot?

The question has changed from "do we need a new mascot" to "do we need a new logo". IMO, Lemma is good to be LSF mascot... she has a long history ;P Considering she's both at the moment, it's not far fetched to discuss both. I don't dislike the character design as a mascot, just the fact that the i...

Re: Is it time lemma soft forums got a new mascot?

It would be really cool if Lemmasoft got a logo that people could actually recognize instead of blue haired anime girl #3045965. Blue Lemma is not blue haired anime girl #3045965 :( While these forums are still called the Lemmasoft forums, using the Lemmasoft mascot makes a lot of sense to me. If t...
