Re: Sprite sizing help? (Sorry if already answered or if it's in the wrong thread)

I'd just draw the sprite double the size just as you suggested - so if your canvas is 720p high, then you should probably draw your sprites on a canvas that's at least twice that tall (I usually draw on an A4 size canvas anyway and resize it to the desired size when I'm done - it's easier to work on...

Wait, so are you planning to include the images in your game? Aren't they usually protected by copyright?

Re: Releasing Chapters as Updates?

For me it's been an issue that people's saves have broken when I have released major updates to Your Royal Gayness. It may partially be because didn't initially know I had to use the default statement to define variables, but even after I added the default statements to every variable I had been usi...

Re: a word of warning about itch.io

I really hope they'll be able to fix it and it really is just a temporary issue caused by the new European information control laws. Itch.io has always been a really indie developer friendly site - customizable, open, easy to use, etc. I'd be really sad if they couldn't overcome this hurdle because ...

Re: Our War Everlasting [BXB][Romance][Action]

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I remember having a lot of fun with the graphics and I'd like to do something with similar graphics in the future.

Re: Predicting the sexual activity of VN characters

I did the male version for my DnD character and got surprisingly accurate results :'D I guess it makes sense that a bisexual character would have MxM sex (my character does, so good job test) and apparently having a pendant necklace is also connected to gay sex and anal sex... I guess that kind of a...

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

No, the nudity update was done the same way both on my site and on Steam, since in those times (June last year) seemed that the policy was "adult content allowed at full speed" :lol: In the worst case I'll revert it to be the usual "uncensor patch" system. Especially when they allowed Ladykiller in...

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

I'm really concerned about this. It's very strange that they're only targeting visual novels or games with "anime style" art. Like mentioned above, games like Dragon Age have sex scenes in them - so why only VN's? I wonder if it's to do with the payment providers Steam is using - for example, Paypal...

Re: How do you go about making a demo?

In my case, the couple of demos that I've done have been pretty much just the beginning of the game, no other stuff included. And then the actual game is a whole different build with everything in it. I think that's the easiest way to do it: No need to make extra content specifically for the demo an...

Re: How much should someone expect to make from their visual novel?

I can't share exact sales figures since I'm pretty sure it's against Steam's contracts, but Your Royal Gayness has sold around 10k euros worth of copies in about 3 months. It's a visual novel/management game hybrid priced at 14.99 and one playthrough lasts like 2 hours but there is replay value. 10k...

Re: Am I being too ambitious for a newbie?

Because sprites and CGs, those are more expensive than many people without experience in commissioning think. You should always remember that art takes time, and that making sprites with many expressions and several poses and outfits take a lot more time than making a single image. And CGs with a b...

Re: Is it worth it creating otome games?

I have to admit being puzzled by "its just the idea of spending so much time in something that does not earn me money bugges me." Millions of people have hobbies that they spend a ton of time on that never make any money. They do it for the enjoyment. It's fine to want to make money off something y...

Re: Is it worth it creating otome games?

I did a successful kickstarter for Your Royal Gayness and it was my first proper game. I had made game jam games before, though! Maybe you could start out with a VN that you make in like a week or a month, and then you'll have a better idea of what to expect when you make your first commercial game....

I'm also wondering because I didn't hear back from you yet; I hope you got my application.
