Re: Good Endings, Bad Endings, True Endings, False Endings

It's not a problem , it's a Style. -- However those of us that play VNs specifically for their Stories can feel cheated if the ending we (the individual players) seek to achieve turns out to be short-changed in detail and emotional impact compared to the ending the Creator liked best, and designate...

How do you write a story?

Hey, I'm not talking about how you go about actually creating a story but rather the act of writing down the story. I'm just starting to work on a project and I feel a bit (read: extremely) disorganized and don't exactly how to plan my story and how to actually write it out. I've looked at Freeplane...

Re: Opinions on warning for cruel twist ending?

I was thinking about this, too. I am very sensible to some kind of topics and it happened a few times that I played a game that seemed absolutely fine but then suddenly included said topics which disturbed my playing experience.

It's one thing to mess up at some points and seeing the consequences and getting an ending where you die.. but making the whole story with the ...

Re: Good Endings, Bad Endings, True Endings, False Endings

Hmmm. I don't really remember any of the games I played having true and not so true endings, but is this really such a problem? The problem I've started working on will have a so called true ending, but that does not mean that the other endings are something lesser or not as viable. The true ending ...
