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

She's not bad but she is incredibly forgettable.

It would be really cool if Lemmasoft got a logo that people could actually recognize instead of blue haired anime girl #3045965.

Re: Bisexuality in VNs

Seeing how a same-sex relationship is just as valid as a hetero one, it shouldn't be given extra treatment just for the sake of being not offending people who really have no reason to be offended. I really don't see how you could get onto a same-sex romance route without realizing it unless you're a...

Four-way movement for a character/event triggering?

I've done some searching, but I haven't found anything conclusive about whether it's possible to control an image on screen (such as an RPG character sprite), and have them walk around on the screen, triggering an event to say, bring up the textbox if they enter that region? I've got plans to port a...

Re: Religion... Yay or nay?

I don't agree that you necessarily need to be making a profound statement about religion if you're using religious elements. For example, most people can agree as a mythology the Bible is filled with amazing stories that can be applied to many situations in every day life that have nothing to do wit...

Re: Al'asuiga'ta: Welcome Back [Short 2D RPG]

Hello! I'm afraid not. D: A proper export feature (I believe) was only made available with VX Ace, and this game uses XP since I seem to have this horrible bias for the battle system. If there's a way to get the game played without RPG Maker, I'd be thrilled to implement it. Until then, you have my...

Re: [Hard Mode] NaNoRenO in Hell 2013 [Serious Joke]

This is such an AWESOME idea! I was really wanting to make a short Vn but didn't want to spend a month making it; this is reminded me of that, and how liberating it is to just do something without caring about the quality of the final product! I've written down my story concept, composed a few music...

Re: Crimson Rafflesia [Thriller|Psych|Romance]Demo 0.5 - 3 M

Yo! So I downloaded your game before I lost internet the last few days, so I ended up playing it with a lot of attention on it. So here' my thoughts: (demo spoilers) Nice opening for setting the mood. Weird we have a Cg of a girl dying of getting stabbed but I don't see the actual guy stabbing her a...

Re: Food for thought - "Replay Value"

The things I've re-played most in my life were music tracks. That sounds like a bad joke, but it isn't; replayability has little to do with branching, in my opinion, and I find that I'm rarely even "replaying" a VN when I try a different branch, because I tend to Ctrl-skip my way through the parts ...

Re: Music Creation~ Where Do You Start When Composing?

For me, it can vary a lot. When I sit down and focus to create music, I think about what the peice is for. If it's a character theme, would this peice be relaxed, frantic, triumphant, self-pitying, loud, cold, ect... Then I usually find a melody that goes with that and a good instrument that describ...

Re: Main Character: Not visible, half body or bust view?

I don't really like side-images. They're rather distracting to me. I mean, it's undeniable that in first person you don't get to see your own facial expressions all the time. In a visual novel, if first person is used, then I feel like I'm posessing them almost aka seeing what they would see. But ha...

Re: Visual Novel Writing Contest (planning thread)

Sounds amazing! I'll definetely enter if this materializes. On the account of votes though, if you really want to decide something like "good writing" through a voting process, then I would reccomend a panel of judges rather than a public vote. After all, does the most popular = the best? Of course ...

Re: AXIOM.01 [detective mystery][otome] - Questions 8/3

I think your story and the mechanics are really intruiging. The art looks gorgeous and I'd love to be a beta tester if you have an opening. As for replayability, just be sure not to underestimate your player. Seeing as how they got your game (most likely) knowing what an otome/visual novel is, they'...

Re: About Drawing/Sketching - Imagination XD

I prefer drawing from imagination. I usually draw from that point and end up correcting/re-working afterwards. Most commericial and professional art bores me to tears actually, especially ones that focus so much on anatomy, and "realisticness." Sure, having a completely anatomically correct human be...
