Outlining a Story With Strong Manga Elements?

Hi lemmasoftians! The project I'm currently working on has some very manga-ish roots to them. (The main concept behind the game is actually shoujo manga sooooo) However, as I've outlined . . . and outlined again . . . And again and again, blah blah blah . . . I've just found it utterly complicated a...

Re: Strong characters, but weak plot?

No idea if I'm too late posting here or not but I figured if anyone having a similar problem looks through this thread, they'll at least see this.

As my favorite author, Max Kirin, says:

Re: Question about paying recruits?

Thank you for the responses, lemmasoftians~ I've luckily got some extra money coming in next month so I'm planning on paying for the work done and then trying to get it back with the Kickerstarter! I find it unfair to anyone to do lots of work, with only half the promise of getting paid. So, at leas...

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

Wow, gonna post something personal now, this'll be fun. My dad passed away on New Years. I'm more frustrated than sad about it, though. We had a strained relationship that I couldn't bring myself to try to fix because he was obsessed with me finding a job. I finally got a job and thought that there ...

Question about paying recruits?

Hi lemmasoftians! So, I was wondering about how you go about payments for the people you hire to do stuff for your game. To be more specific: going about payments when the money you would be paying people with would com from Kickstarter. (Of course, this is assuming you make your funding goal.) For ...

Re: A visual novel setup like a manga??

I've got a little bit of an image in my head for that exactly. I'm having a little bit of a harder time picturing it, though. Can you describe what you mean a little more? (゜-゜)

Re: A visual novel setup like a manga??

Thank you for the responses! @Barzini: Yes, The Detail is definitely similar to what I had in mind and what I wanted to do. @fioricca: Doing the game in full comic-y style is definitely what would be best for the story and game as a whole, considering my inspiration was shoujo manga. (Many of the th...

A visual novel setup like a manga??

Hello again, Lemmasoftians! (Wow, I've been posting a lot recently . . . Thank you to everyone putting up with me. ;~; ) My question today is a little more personal to my own project: I originally was planning on, instead of having sprites and backgrounds and CG's, I'd format the game completely in ...

Question about recruiting artists?

Hi there, lemmasoftians! I was wondering about if you have a project that you'll need multiple artists (2~3) for but you need the art style to be consistent, how do go about recruiting those artists? Do you find artists that can adapt their style? Do you look for artists that have a similar-enough s...

Encorportating fantasy into a story that isn't a fantasy?

I'm hoping I put this is the right section . . . I've run into a problem with my most recent idea I've been planning. The plot had two focuses: 1) Girls and guys being roomed together 2) The heroine has these weird visions of the (main) boys she meets that aren't from our world (she's actually from ...

Re: To undo or not to undo?

@trooper6: Thank you for the input! I definitely feel like I might be more worried about poorly written questions, now. @Laniessa: Well, it was meant to be a normal game but it could also potentially work as a meta. Also, I think I've pretty much decided on getting rid of the idea of an undo button....

To undo or not to undo?

Hello lemmasoftians! (I just came up with that on the spot, surprisingly) So, I got the idea of adding some kind of an "undo button" to my own project. You know how when you're playing a game and you choose one option and it turns out that you read it in a different tone than it was actually said in...

How exactly does the voice acting work?

When your actors aren't in person and they can't hear and react to what the other actors are saying, how exactly would you go about putting it all together? It seems complicated to complete voice acting when all the actors can't gather together in person and recite lines. So, would you perhaps gathe...

Length of Game Extras?

Hello~ (Not entirely sure if I posted this is the correct section of the forum but hopefully this works) The current game I'm working on has a certain backstory that you can unlock after playing through all the boy's routes. (It's an otome game) The heroine has amnesia and gets certain flashbacks re...
