Re: What is considered copyright when it comes to ..

I'll point out that Blizzard has been cool with fanworks. For example, they allowed the SC2VN team to use their assests. So you might want to try contacting them and asking permission? In Blizzard's case, we had already put together the entire game before we asked for permission. It helped them act...

Re: Derisive criticism of your work online...?

It helps to recognize that there's a certain segment of youtubers that view visual novels as fodder for jokes (like the guy you linked). They download the games to lambaste them, not to examine them critically. Separating these people out from those who actually gave your work a chance can help you ...

Re: How does multiple routes work with a single ending?

As I said, I've made my choice. Still have a list with a few names to recruit. Well, we might celebrate every finished routes, tough :D 250 screenshots? Jesus, I can remember just 10 or 20. How about a sequel? Hope that will doesn't take almost two years :) Don't let me dissuade you, just know what...

Re: How does multiple routes work with a single ending?

And I see you wrote SC2VN: good piece of work, I enjoyed that. But in the early stages, it was an opportunity to select Mach's race, isn't? And I feel a little dissappointed because I don't felt that my choices weigh anything. Thanks. But that's precisely what I'm talking about. Adding in the abili...

Re: SC2VN - The eSports Visual Novel [Non-Commercial]

Thanks for the high praise. We definitely want to make a sequel, but we have to make sure it's the right call for our team and if the opportunities will line up for us. We'll know for sure after Blizzcon (November 9th or so).

Re: How does multiple routes work with a single ending?

If you're the only writer + you have other responsibilities, consider how much extra work you'll give yourself doing multiple tellings of the same story. While you're in this phase, it's easy to tell yourself that you can handle the workload of writing hundreds of thousands of words which will lead ...

Re: SC2VN - The eSports Visual Novel [Non-Commercial]

I downloaded this game yesterday and played it today, it was a pretty good game. The soundtrack was fitting and catchy, the characters were all likable and unique, the art was very good, and I feel like the story is accessible to people without much knowledge about starcraft. I had basic knowledge ...

Re: Silent storytelling principle?

For the maker of the video, diegetic explanations (like sister Sam's diary entries) don't count as silent storytelling...because that is still someone telling you something rather than you finding out through your actions. I disagree. The important information isn't the content of the diaries, it's...

Re: Silent storytelling principle?

This is absolutely possible in a VN. It's actually possible with nothing but words, too. In The Yellow Wallpaper , you witness the narrator's descent into madness. Not because she tells you that she's going mad, but because you see her narration become erratic and obsessive. That kind of reminds me ...

Re: How to get testers?

My project is nearing beta release soon. With some finished but mostly unfinished sprite and only the common branch finished. I was going to ask my friends to test it for, and have them tell me where I made minor errors. But when I did this previously with an even less finished version, I was disap...

Unlockable Glossary/Dictionary/Tips?

Hey all. I'm looking to find out whether or not renpy is capable of doing something similar to the Tips section in Steins;Gate. The design goal is to unlock a term and its definitions when it's encountered in the text. I've included a screenshot below (spoiler warning for SG) of the type of thing I'...

Re: Synchronized + Progressive Music

Hmm. It looks like Track 1 isn't getting defined properly. Maybe you need to put all that stuff into an init block? Like here? That actually did work, I'm able to play the sound from those channels now. I'm still having an issue setting the volume though. Defining the volume outside of the scene ap...
