Re: Do you sell/promote your VNs in cons?

I do sales at Fanime every year generally, but the vast majority of my sales are online. I'm starting to wonder whether it's entirely worth it, though, because it's a lot of work and pretty exhausting to run a booth. I pretty much miss out on the con other than a few stolen moments because I'm work...

Re: Is a visual novel a "game"? Grad student needs your opin

I'm in the Arts and Technology program at UT Dallas, more specifically, in the game design program. "What is a game?" is a question that comes up in almost every class I take in my program. And I'll tell you this now, most people in my program probably don't think that visual novels qualify as game...

Re: Bliss Stage - [GxB] [GxG] [BxG] [BxB] [Sci-Fi] [RPG]

On the first weekend of November, some of the BSVN team will be making an appearance at Con-Volution 2013, in Burlingame, California - near SFO BART. I'll personally be running a tabletop Bliss Stage campaign, and a couple other games in FATE Core based on unannounced Ren'Py projects. Look for us in...

The Liberated Pixel Cup - CC-BY and GPLv3 RPG Tilesets

http://lpc.opengameart.org/ The Liberated Pixel Cup is a treasure-trove of internally consistent 32^2 tiles for use in game designs, particularly top-down RPGs. Including both tilesets and character sprites, the Liberated Pixel Cup assets have a cartoony style reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: Win...

Re: Visibility of stats?

If you want to include these stats, it's less breaking to immersion, at least to my immersion, to have the stat blocks displayed in a blatantly out-of-universe way. If there is an in-universe rationale behind them, the characters can reference it as well, but I always hate it when a character tells ...

Re: Could an English VN do well in Japan?

It's my understanding that Katawa Shoujo was popular at Comic Market, so English VN's already can become popular in Japan. At least part of that is Raide's delight at someone doing something with that legendary illustration he did - the original inspiration. And that the Japanese translation was rep...

Re: Setting Terminology in Stories

Whenever possible, adapt an existing English word to create in-universe jargon, or use compound words. Then introduce them in a context that gives you SOME, but not all, of the intended meaning and fill it out as you go. For example: "They set a slamhound on him, slotting it to the precise smell of ...

Re: Fanime 2013 appearances by Ren'Py game devs?

Yeah, I'm going to be there. I have a Saturday panel on the Bliss Stage VN and other Ren'Py projects we're doing Saturday at 9:00 PM, panel room 1. Which is pretty nifty.

So I take it you're into studying snakes? Because if you are, then rock on you crazy diamond. There is no way this idea can fail if that's what makes you crazy about it. Hatoful worked because it's creator was nuts about birds, and her enthusiasm and brand of crazy worked itself into that product of...

Re: How do you choose name for main character?

I generally try to pick a name that has some symbolic meaning for a character. For example, a character who's an eternal optimist I named Yuuki - from a root meaning "Hope." Or naming a catgirl archer Sekhmet Jatuu, the latter literally meaning "Lion" in Malinese and the former being the name of a w...

Re: To Girls: Concerning games lacking Female Perspective

I can think of an exception if the character has the personality of a temptress, you wouldn't say Catwoman looks ridiculous making a sexualized pose, it's her specialty. But, I doubt someone would give all their characters those poses if they didn't specifically intend to appeal to their male reade...
