Re: The discrimination of OELVNs?

^This. I'd also like to add when someone uses honorifics despite the story being in English, but as far as things go that's more of a pet peeve than anything else.
I had a good laugh when I read that, good one Mink.

Re: Dealing with doubts and lack of motivation

A stressful hobby is like an unpaid job, you get nothing good out of it. Do it for yourself and enjoy it. Laugh at your little mistakes and be proud of your improvements. As of now, you are both creator and the player, impress yourself...

Re: The discrimination of OELVNs?

Well, my point is that The Emperor's New Groove is clearly not meant to be accurate. If your story is mean to be realistically in a setting, and taken seriously, you shouldn't just try to B.S. your way through it. All too often this leads to relying more on stereotypes than anything else. And it's ...

Re: Should there be choices if there's only one love interes

I say yes to the choices definitely. Give me something to work with, even if it's something as simple as "Do I wear the polo shirt or the Naruto fox shirt?". You could even take it a step further and have the girl react to those choices.

Re: The discrimination of OELVNs?

I'd be okay with something being historically inaccurate if that's kind of the point (like The Emperor's New Groove), rather than someone just not spending the effort to look something up, or just not caring. We can just agree to disagree about this, though Actually Mink, I'm not disagreeing with a...

Re: The discrimination of OELVNs?

My problem isn't so much that as I tend to see people try to do a *realistic* story set in Japan and everything they know about Japan is clearly based off anime and manga. That'd be like if someone Japanese tried to make a realistic story set in the U.S. but everything they know about the U.S. is f...

Re: The discrimination of OELVNs?

think the main problem is that people try to make their games about Japan when they have no idea what Japan is really like Also, what Fawn said. I know enough about Japan so that most things set in Japan that's not by someone Japanese/from Japan/has been to Japan/etc. makes me roll my eyes and go, ...

Re: Writer's block 1/5

To be honest, they're not really that stereotypical. If you zoom out far enough on anything, it can look that way, but these characters' depth far exceeds any stereotype. Oh that wasn't a critique on my part at all. Perhaps I misread your first post. I have five characters in my VN. To put them in ...

Re: (GXB) Syphethia's Discoveries (WIP)

I've never played a game or heard of elves that had phones, that I must see. The story sounds interesting, I wonder what kind of adventures she will find. There will be adventure correct?

Re: Writer's block 1/5

I'm wondering why you're making them stereotypical to begin with but, put a pin in that and we'll come back to it later. Why not have him stand for something, instead of making a simple run of the mill otaku who draws oddly proportioned anime characters. What if (and I know that this is a long shot)...

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

f you can make something that looks good (Such as Marcelo_Orlando's icon, that's 3d art, correct?) then there's no problem. Yes my icon and sig are 3D I rendered to look more 2D. It's because of what I stated before - all bad 3D art looks the same. All bad 2D art at least has the individual mark of...

Re: ~ Boyguard ~ [Mystery, Romance, Comedy GxB Game]

Welcome and good luck on your game. Art looks really nice, she kinda reminds me of Nanako hehe. I have one question though...is she famous or something? Why would she get a body guard?

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

That's one of the more interesting things about this conversation to me, it seems more people are willing to except badly drawn 2D art than low quality 3D art. Really? Really? At the most poor quality 3D art looks like an amature made it while some low quality 2D art looks like a child made it. Just...

Re: What is your opinion about using 3D art?

I'd like to see more 3D art in VNs, in fact I'd love to. It would be awesome to see this style become popular but I doubt that will happen anytime soon since the band wagon is so appealing. As for your other question, if you'd like to have more than just me playing your game then you might just want...
