Re: Quick Time Events in Visual Novels

Agreeing with, it depends on audience/how it's integrated into the game. I personally don't mind QTE (our project even has some planned) and feel like they can help heighten a situation, with TellTale or even Oxenfree having a nice formula for that. By introducing QTE early, players get a feel for i...

Re: Dealing with frustration

Aside from finishing the draft, my advice would be to step back and do a thorough plot outline first (about 1-4 pages), which focuses on telling the game's plot progression through how the player will encounter it. For ex: "Whether through combat or infiltration, the player retrieves the acorn from ...

Re: Y;N [Mystery & Psychological Horror, inkl Point&Click]

Gave this a play recently and, even if it's not the full version, it's pretty promising and enjoyable for what it is! The setting has a lot of interesting clues and it has a great hook from the start. Though the walkthrough link is broken, the gameplay is intuitive enough that I could figure out mos...

Re: I need your help with my Otome-game Related research

Also answered it and I agree, I wish there were some additional fields for expanding on why some of the answers are what they are, even aside from other.

Re: Imagemaps or Imagebuttons?

It depends on what you want to do, really. I use image buttons primarily but that's because a ) I find them easier to edit and code for b ) my game is a point-and-click game so I have a lot of different sorts of interaction points and things are often added or removed. If you have something like a n...

Re: The Falconers: Moonlight [Supernatural/Thriller][Commerc

I ended up giving this a play and really enjoyed it a fair bit! It has the feeling of volume 1/arc one of a larger story, with the hints in the setting and character backstories, and the presentation aspects are definitely one of the strongest/more immersive aspects of it. I also liked that a lot of...

Text transitions slowly in only one part?

I've run into a really weird bug and it only happens in my main project file. When I start the game, the text runs really slow and appears to be using a dissolve effect during the transitions, rather than showing the next line of text instantly. Once I jump to the next label in the game, though, it ...

Re: Voln [ XXX Fantasy RPG ]

Tbh, I'd say the initial reply to this topic is a bigger concern than the financial sense of his patreon tiers. m0RV is using other people's work despite not paying them. He brags about doing it multiple times about winning PayPayl disputes against artists and taking their money. That alone does not...

Re: Ren'Py Real Time Capabilities?

It should be doable. There's a thread that might help your friend here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=37939

If you're limiting the time by something shorter (i.e: a few minutes) that the player has to wait out you can set it to an in-game timer.

Re: What got you into making visual novels?

Honestly, because VNs is one of the easier game genres to get into development for. Many game engines either require you pay a fair bit for its use or require a lot of programmer saavy, which can be a hurdle to get over if you're just starting out or don't have a team. VN making is something I found...

Re: Using Patreon/Ko-Fi

IIRC, Patreon can also be set for something like 'everytime I receive a certain amount of donations, I'll release a video'. However, similar to what KittyWills said, that sort of format seems to work best if you're releasing something episodic. I've used Patreon for my project and never got anywhere...
