Re: Porcelain Heart [gxb][Otome/Comedy/Drama] [Demo Released

Well, stuff happens, as you can guess. ETA is up in the air at the moment. I'm not going to make any promises until we get closer to completion. (I'd rather not miss my ETA this time) Writing is still in routes, with 2 almost being finished finally. Also got feedback on the first route, looks like t...

Re: Seduce Me [GxB][Romance, Comedy, Drama][Incubi/Demons]

Given the information, the characters don't seem to have much personality and are cliches. The bg itself needs lots of work, the stairs don't look right. Also just given your summary the Protag sounds almost Mary-Sueish. Also do you know what an incubus is? These hardly sound like incubus given the ...

Re: Opinions on warning for cruel twist ending?

As others have said, if you have violence, gore, extreme situations, that could disturb someone, list it at the very beginning, like before the title screen. Telling the reader 'This is going to be sad.' Is just stupid, in my opinion. The whole point of a twist downer, or a downer ending is to make ...

Re: VN Creation Workshops

Hello! Just thought I'd post an update on the writing workshop. We are currently working on the first four lessons. With the first one, just needing review and touch ups. We'll probably start up the workshop once those lessons are completed. (Or maybe a few lessons after that, depending on how quick...

Re: How to write a good suspense story?

Higurashi isn't fully suspense, it is more suspense/mystery. You don't need to have an element of 'what is going on' or 'who can be trusted' to write a good suspense genre story. While those can be powerful elements you can use they aren't 100% needed. Suspense arises from the reader caring about th...

Re: How many words?

The average time to read 1 hour is 12,000 words, according to how it is handled when figuring out how long it will take for a person to read your novel/article/story/etc. That is how publishers and such think of it. Going by how I've timed it, I'd say this is accurate to vns as well, unless special ...

Progress update: Writing: Kari's Route 100% Complete and is currently in beta testing. Other routes, well I can't really give an estimate as to how much % they are at. Art: Icecheetah has updated the sprites for Kari and Cade, and is working on Fenris and Lei right now. http://boonce.org/up/karismil...

Re: Reviews for VNs

I'm worried about being harsh as well. ^^; Well, the way I see it is we need more harsh reviews. We aren't doing anyone favors by letting things that bother us go and only commenting on what we liked. The community as a whole of Lemmasoft seems like a hindrance to growth rather than the promoter. W...

Re: Reviews for VNs

If you don't mind, could you review and comment about the demo for Porcelain Heart. My team and I who are working on it are trying to get all the feedback we can get, so we can make the final version really shine. http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=21198 (Also I've kind of thought...

Re: On detailing surroundings

First of all; it greatly depends on the genre, the mood of the scene, and what is going on. Mystery, horror, and suspense stories benefit from understanding the location and mood. Which can be channeled into the description and can increase the power of the writing. Next if the setting is important ...

Re: Writing Workshop(s) planning thread

Well, I'm at least not ready to really give it up.

So it will happen, at some point. I must admit I grew busy and then had/have (they are still going on, 5 freaking months so far :cry: ) health issues. But it will happen, I promise you that. Hopefully sometime in the near future.

Re: Porcelain Heart Demo

I played it, and I've got to admit that I was really disappointed when the demo was over. Noooooo! I want to see what happens...oh well. *sad face* Needless to say, I'll be looking forward to this when it comes out. It was pretty good, but I didn't really like how the sprites were only half-body.
