Re: New Term for Visual Novels? [split]

Daily reminder that in grorious Nippon, VNs are often referred to as ADV (adventure) games--which is what they are. KNs are basically glorified comic books, whereas VNs with choices are basically ADVs with branching linear storylines. What sets VNs and KNs apart from the typical adventure game, how...

Re: Flavored Introduction - Critique Requested

I agree with Sundownkid that this is an info-dump. And in a prologue as well, which is probably the worst kind (they have a terrible reputation for being ... dull. Sorry. :( ) I like Asceai's suggestion of revealing everything as the story unfolds and just canning the introduction. Also instead of j...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

I've always thought (for-profit) school was unnecessarily long. In the U.S. you could probably shave off one or two years off college without anything lost, if the classes were more concentrated. In law school you have to take 3 years when the first year is the only one that truly makes a differenc...

Re: Would you play commercial VN without voices?

Most definitely would.

I'm old fashioned. Audio costs a significant amount of money, so I find voices can compromise the amount of writing in a game. Thus I'd prefer to go without.

Also I read fast, so I usually don't hear the voices anyway.

Re: Kickstarting Your Visual Novel

Here's an example of a visual novel Kickstarter that was unsuccessful the first time , and successful the second time . Part of the success the second time around was thanks to the demo and a much more modest goal. I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say 'considering they raised less money dur...

Usually not much, but it depends. When people curse it's rarely different, so I find it a little boring to read. That's just me, though.

Zhe means consumer awareness.

I disagree with zher conclusion, though. Katawa Shoujo shows you don't need to go commercial to get mindshare.
