Re: Language-Learning VN Game for Japanese

Go Go Nippon is the one that everyone knows, but isn't so educational. It offers interesting trivia about Tokyo, but as far as I know, no language skills. Plus the theme of the game may be off-putting to many (or most?) people. I think OP is interested in real education. It also hasn't been specifi...

Re: Language-Learning VN Game for Japanese

You should make a game about a dude who takes a plane to Japan and has a homestay with a pair of cute sisters who dress up in yellow tour guide uniforms to show him around the country. I just bumped into what this was referencing and realized that this is an underrated comment. Go! Go! Nippon is a ...

Re: Language-Learning VN Game for Japanese

I was quite immersed with the plot of the Himmelscheibe von Nebra even though it also included educational material...so it can be done. I think that it was a mystery was helpful. I just looked this up and it does indeed look interesting. I like how it has a disclaimer that it requires the player t...

Never heard of them, they must be those crowdfunding developers who quit their jobs to make money. Let me Google them... yep nothing from google or Steam.

Re: The Nautch [Sci-fi] ["Historical" Fiction]

First thing I noticed is the unique art style. The premise seems risky and it looks like it'd take a lot of effort to pull off, and I'm interested to see how you'd handle it.

Re: Language-Learning VN Game for Japanese

I'm not sure what I wrote that offended you. Don't sweat it. He misinterpreted the purpose of this thread and your response to it. And trying to let him know that he made a mistake is a colossal waste of time, so again, don't sweat it. Also, OP, I think plot would complicate the educational materia...

Re: Is there a Visual Novel where the MC is the Love Rival?

An MC who falls in love with a character who already has a fiancé/engagement is pretty staple in romance. Not that I can name the good ones, there are other people here who specialize in that department.

Re: south korea "PIPA" and why it matters to you.

Let me imagine a situation where this law matters: 1. I hire a South Korean artist for my next VN project. 2. To pay said artist, I get his e-mail address to use for PayPal. 3. I catch an e-mail trojan that sends my e-mail contact list to some spammer in Russia. 4. Said spammer now uses the e-mail ...

Re: south korea "PIPA" and why it matters to you.

Thanks for the links, OP, they explain this law better than the tinfoil hats you're handing out. I'd have thought you'd nailed this point to your head in the past few months after this board has pointed it out to you, repeatedly at that, but I'll repeat it again. Civil Court =/= Criminal Court.

It's still ongoing. Just that OP is currently moving to another city. There'll probably be more when she gets settled down.

Re: Any Tips for Improving Your VN Writing?

I quote Roy Peter Clark, from his 50 Writing Tools book. Read for form and content. This means one can study different aspects of different work, and use what they learn in their own story. Note the difference between Form (How something is written) and Content (What it's about). For example, you wa...
