Re: [DISCUSSION]What art style speaks to you the most?

There's various artstyles I love and various ones I hate, though when I add them all up, I definitely may seem like a hopeless otaku weeabu or something, since most of the realism based and western cartoony styles tend to just be a bit irksome to me in the same way I'm sure most of you feel about Mo...

Re: Any sort of life lesson you've gotten from a VN?

Well, I don't know if I've ever gotten any life lessons from VNs. Mostly its been things I've come to in my own pondering, then after playing a game which brings that topic in the back of my mind up, I see a scene which sort of creates a more vivid affirmation from the scatter brained thoughts in my...

Re: Need Help Planning....

Well, a fellow writer and friend of mine linked me to this guide last night, and I plan on using it every chance I get. I don't know if somebody else has shared it already---I apologize if that's the case---but I thought everyone should know about it. Jeeze, thanks to this one, I completed a plot i...

Re: Non-Anime art styles

Me? Personally? I love anime art. That's almost exclusively what I prefer actually. And perhaps sounding like a broken record player by this point, but there is an audience for non-anime art, so do what you feel suits the game more. Who knows, if it's something new, and it catches the right eyes, yo...

Re: Have any of you found any good results out of appreciati

Gratitude toward the small things in life does help improve the quality of it from my experience. Indeed, a bit of appreciation really helps one recognize when they have it good. And when one accepts this is just a transitory experience, its easier to watch it slide away from you without feeling as ...

Re: What Are Some Common Visual Novel Clichés?

I think it's counterproductive to avoid cliches. Cliches are everywhere, and if you try to completely avoid them you'll find yourself in a dead end. In fact, by trying to avoid cliches you might run into the things you've been trying to avoid. Instead of avoiding cliches completely, try twisting th...

Re: What Are Some Common Visual Novel Clichés?

When it comes to cliches in my experience, focusing on them at all is probably when they become a problem. Like I tried writing a story that avoided them entirely, and in the end, I couldn't write the story I wanted to tell. Then again, try to embrace them, and... Well, anyone who obsessively embrac...

Re: Exploration in Visual Novels

I'm assuming the traditional method would simply be a choice box? Hmm, yeah, that might not be as fun. Actually, I think what Rewrite did was pretty awesome with exploration. Not sure how well it would work with a horror game, but basically you would have a map that you move you're curser around to ...

Re: Keepsake (BxG / A Supernatural Romantic Comedy)

Alright, time for a progress report. We are still in action. Our title screen has been uploaded (First post), I'm done with the main story structure and the individual themes of each route, and my time has freed up. The project may be renamed here pretty soon.

Re: BL game seme-uke ratio?

Right, I can't same I'm an expert on the subject of BL, and I've never heard the term "Seke" before from the rabid yaoi fangirls in my group. But BarabiSama has a good point. If you're audience expects certain tropes or roles in a certain genre, then sure, be mindful to them. But don't feel chained ...

Re: Four ways to write a great story

"Plan a little, write a lot" is the approach I'm taking to writing VNs, but as my writing style stemmed more from literate roleplaying, I guess I inherently have more of an "Easy as you go" approach to overall writing, where as I edit over and over and over again until I reach a desired conclusion. ...
