Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

@Caveat Lector: Sure, be my guest! My friend reads through the posts on this thread, so she'll read your recommendations. As you can see 2 posts below yours, trooper6 has already listed some examples. You can do the same. =) @PhoenixStardust: Thanks for the advice! Yes, we are adding goals and motiv...

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of drama do you like/prefer?

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

Well, we have some pretty shocking twists for our plot/characters, and we've tried and worked really hard to come up with non-cliché things. With that being said, I kinda don't want to throw out the shockers in the prologue. We were thinking about putting in a lot of (realistic) drama into the prolo...

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

@akemicchi: Thanks for the detailed response! That's just the kind of honesty I've been waiting for. =) @Googabooga: Thanks for your response as well. =) One question I had was about the "big reveals". If it's a prologue and I incorporate a big shocker, won't that make the rest of the game predictab...

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

@akemicchi: thanks for the response! Ok, so let's say the prologue was pretty good (we haven't finished ours yet, I'm just speaking hypothetically). If I mentioned in the game description some specifics for the game (length: 15 chapters, 2 endings per character, "Good" ending and "Perfect Ending", a...

Re: Would you play interactive Manga?

I don't know about interactive mangas, but I have played games that are interactive comic books (when I say "comic books", I am not referring to manga, I mean that the style is closer to American comic books). The interactive comic book games (I know they have a different name, I just can't think of...

Re: Fan Expression Frustration

Start with a simple image/character. 1. Doodle it. 2. Roughly sketch it. And when I say "roughly", I mean really roughly. Use this rough sketch to add on details. For me, I also write little notes next to certain parts, such as "make eyes wider" or "make fingers more realistic" (I suck at drawing fi...

Re: Chat on this site

Agreeing with dretchlord, I would really like to have a in-chat thing for this site. I was kinda disappointed that there isn't one. I prefer a chat to an IRC because in the chat, I can be specific to who is included in my conversation. IRC's are too public; I can't discuss game-specific stuff with t...

Re: No Longer Interested In Renpy

I wish you the best of luck, Ekamu! On both your engine as well as any future projects you may decide to do. =) I'm not understanding why there's a lot of backlash on here regarding Ekamu's preference of not liking Ren'Py. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and preferences. For some, Ren'Py m...

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

@trooper6: Thank you for the response! This was an original concern of mine that I mentioned to my friend when we were first discussing how to go about releasing the game.
When you say: "the game is something different", what in your opinion is "something different"? Do you have any examples?

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

The girl I work with only plays commercial VNs via iOS/Android, so neither of us really know anything about the fanbase for commercial VNs for PC. I know that entire games usually do well, but I need to know specifically about how well character routes sell (if they sell at all), and what people rea...

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

Um, that's the point. I don't buy online games, I just don't prefer to do that. But since the girl I'm working with wants to release her game this way, I'm just trying to get information regarding what people prefer, so that the release for her game won't be a flop. As for the girl I'm working with,...

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

With the prologue being pretty much the important decision-maker for whether or not you want to purchase the routes, can you perhaps say what kind of stuff makes a good prologue? Or what you personally look for when playing the prologue? Sorry I'm asking so many questions. It's mainly because I don'...
