Re: Favourite Final Fantasy?

FF6 all the way. That game blew my mind when I was a kid, and Kefka remains one of my favorite villains in anything. FF7 is a close second. The story has a lot of genuine depth to it (though I get the feeling a lot of it is lost to the wonky translation). But I also love the goofy moments; CPR minig...

Play Akinator with your OCs

IMPORTANT EDIT : People have been getting security warnings for the Akinator site. Maybe don't do this after all. Here's a little game I thought might be fun for us to play: 1. Go to http://en.akinator.com/ 2. Choose a medium that you feel suits your original character(s) ahead of time (TV show, vi...

Re: Visual Novel, Voiced Main Character?

If the rest of the cast is going to be voiced, I'd prefer for the protagonist to be voiced as well. I think having a "mute" protagonist is an overused and unnecessary convention. Also, if you have the main character be voiced, it'll be helpful to ESL players of your game. Sometimes I'll play VNs in ...

Re: Recycling CGs?

Personally, to save on resources, I would simply have an androgynous character design and players can choose whether they identify as male or female. Seconding this! You cut your CG-making significantly and sidestep the entire issue. If you're set on using two different character designs, as a play...

Re: NaNoRenO is coming again! Who's excited?

I'd like to give it a try myself! I think it'll be nice to work on a short-term project instead of the monster I'm working on now (which was also supposed to be a short-term project, once upon a time...)

No idea what I want to do, though.

Re: Kinetic Novel?

I do play kinetic novels on rare occasion (basically only if they're horror stories). But I'm not fond enough of them to contribute money to them, where I would definitely pay for a high-quality visual novel. To me, the game aspect is the entire appeal of the medium. I have difficulty engaging with ...

Re: Last game you played?

Harvest Moon Tale of Two Towns. Yep. I'm a Harvest Moon fan ; v ; I might try Rune Factory 4 soon. I loved Harvest Moon for years, but now that I've played Rune Factory, I can never go back. I think Rune Factory 4 is the best one yet. Right now I'm replaying Ace Attorney 5. I wasn't super fond of A...

Re: Freak-Quency

To be honest I'm still not sure where the setting should be at, America or Japan or anywhere really. I wanted a fictional city/country where they both merged. So both have eastern and western culture thus why some characters have Japanese names and some foreign. I think you could do it as some gene...

Re: Freak-Quency

My thoughts: - You seem to have a very good handle on coding and design. - The game has a nice visual style to it, too, and I think once you have some original backgrounds in place, it'll be very attractive. - Is the character Crystal Ballock's name supposed to be an intentional joke? If not, you ma...

Re: LF Playtesters for Queen At Arms

I'm interested, but I wouldn't be able to download it until next weekend (I don't have real internet at home, only my phone, and have to make pilgrimages to an internet cafe to make downloads of any size). If that's not too long from now, I'd be glad to help out!

Re: Two Steps Back

I got a kick out of the "ending." Putting in all the extra sprites for Therese was a nice touch as well.

Big Disgaea fan here, immediately downloaded and did a quick playthrough, naming my character Sardines-chan and shooting for a Lord Valvatorez route, as Lord Val is naturally the pinnacle of all dreaminess. Someday I'll meet up with him on the astral plane and we'll share a sardine milkshake with tw...

Re: Styling two_window for different characters

Sorry, but I'm not seeing what you changed in the screen_say code. It looks exactly the same as the default. Did you accidentally paste the wrong thing, or am I totally missing something?
