Re: Need Artists+ to help develop this VN.

Welcome to the forum!

You'll be more likely to succeed in recruiting artists, etc. if you have more than just an idea and an outline---I recommend making more progress on your script before you start on anything else.

Re: Convenient method for spellchecking?

Yeah, I plan to pay someone who thinks they're really good at english to check it out when it's done. But even then I've no doubt there'll still be a few errors in it. Somehow they always escape... There's a difference between thinking you're good at something and actually being skilled at it. Some...

Re: Convenient method for spellchecking?

Personally I don't bother with an automatic spellchecker, since you're gonna proofread again and again anyway. But now I'm starting to think I should. There's gonna be that one retarded spelling error that everyone will miss in testing and then when it's published it's there forever and everyone wi...

Well, I don't feel like I should post this, but I need to get this off my chest... [...] I don't know what I should do... It was an accident and you apologized. That's really all you can do.

Re: The role of men in a magical girl narrative

The girls have physically manifesting powers (control of fire, illusion-based powers, creating forcefields, etc.) while the boys have more mentally focused powers (sensing auras, telepathy, and so on). I like this idea a lot better than simply giving male characters trainee roles, or making them al...

Re: The role of men in a magical girl narrative

I would also look at Steven Universe . While Steven is the main character, he's still learning how his powers work, with the help of the other Crystal Gems, and unlike most male heroes, he has defensive and healing abilities instead of offensive ones, and he's still very much in a trainee position. ...

Re: Afterland [GxG/BxB/GxB][Fantasy, Romance etc]

Maybe you could look into Celtic mythologies for inspiration, since they're full of fairies.

EDIT: Came up with an idea while out on a walk: Land Beyond the Looking-Glass.

Re: Ottoman Fantasy Child Rearing Sim

Third: I really do love the thought you've put into the various personality types of the children! Focal characters who aren't neurotypical and aren't treated as a novelty are rare. Ah, you beat me to it, but I agree---that's one feature of this project that has especially caught my interest. It's ...

Re: Looking for Artist, Composer, Coder, and Uploader

So I have been playing a ton of visual novels and I got an itch at wanting try my hand at creating a visual novel. I want to create it with a team of people and then release it for free and then see if it will be any good. If a lot of people like it, I want to make more visual novels to see if I ca...

Re: What are some Do's or Don'ts in your opinion?

I'll move the thread back on topic by referring to a problem I've been having lately:

Don't guilt yourself for getting creatively stuck, especially if you're not making something on a deadline.

Re: Welcome to Short Noncommercial Games

It's not a pretty clear indication if I needed to ask. For all I knew, it could have meant between creators in terms of paying for the full game. Anyway, no harm in asking for clarification, and it was pretty rude to assume my understanding. Just because something is clear to you doesn't mean it is...
