Re: Legalities with Publishing Free VNs on Steam

@Rossfellow: Did you find anything related to "becoming a publisher" in Steam's NDA? Not anything particularly relevant or a hindrance to OP's goal. The most important things about it are that you do not discuss price models publicly, and that you do not discuss the arrangements made for your game/...

Re: Legalities with Publishing Free VNs on Steam

Yes, its accurate. You know what else is accurate? "You get ticketed and fined if you run a red light." But the essence of your advice is "You shouldn't drive this car because you get ticketed and fined for running a red light." And that's just silly. Edit: I'm going to make this inescapably clear: ...

Re: Legalities with Publishing Free VNs on Steam

I don't think you still get the picture, if godline breaks any rules, incident or not. It can mean the banned of all her games not just one. She will only be allowed to upload people's games if she has a contract otherwise it is illegal to claim that she made it under Steam NDA. All this headache c...

Re: Legalities with Publishing Free VNs on Steam

What puzzles me is why the creators wouldn't just publish the game themselves if they really wanted to. The only reason I can think of is that Steam is unavailable where he or she is, like кролик девушк, or because they are really, -really- protective of their private information. The reason I'd be...

Re: Legalities with Publishing Free VNs on Steam

I was just talking on twitter about VN publishers who are open to publishing feminist and LGBT-friendly games. One of the major VN publisher groups has a record of expressing the sentiment that anything that isn't a bishojo or yuri-for-men game isn't worth their time. I, for one, would greatly appr...

Re: Legalities with Publishing Free VNs on Steam

Look, nobody wants a repeat of the previous threads (two of which have gotten someone banned, by the way). The chance to argue whether OP should use Steam or not has long passed. That ship has sailed. This thread was created clearly because OP has decided she -wants- to use Steam, and needs advice f...

Ask Vogue from Team11. SC2VN is a free VN that's seen overwhelming success on Steam. Furthermore, its fanwork, so he'll be able to tell you limits of certain licenses.

Re: Diverse Character Dilemma

I can really only hope that my writing ends up in the hands of someone who does not jump to conclusions, and I have to place more faith in my readers to not do so themselves. That's everyone's dream, but it's never always going to end up that way. Viewership is like an ocean-- If you cast a big eno...

Re: On-screen protagonist?

There are pros and cons to on-screen and off-screen protagonists but in the end its the execution of all the other adjacent elements that make the whole thing work. From the top of my head.... Here are observations I made from games I've played. On-Screen + Gives the reader a stronger mental image o...

Re: Sedatophobia [Mystery][Horror]

More art updates. Accompanying the drastic changes in stylistic vision from 2014 are drastic changes in characters' designs in general. Unquestionably for the better.

Re: Have you been rejected for not having your game on Steam

The only reason I reject anyone outside of non-interest is when they don't have Paypal. Though that first one is important too.

"Sit Down That Goddamned Chair and Write" is the greatest advice that is also the hardest to follow.

Re: Diverse Character Dilemma

So this is something I've been thinking about and I'm genuinely wondering how I should approach this dilemma. Is it generally preferable to try writing "diverse" characters, even if the writer is unfamiliar with the subject and may potentially "get some things wrong", or is it better to leave "dive...

Re: Do you doubt your writing?

When I made someone read my Proof of Concept draft and I realized how awful it really was I wanted (still want to) roll myself into a ditch and never surface again.

But I have to keep going.

A lot of the later pages really hurt to read.
