Re: What concepts are consistent through your writing?

Love, most definitely. It doesn't matter if it's a central theme or not, it manifests itself in various ways. A lot of it has to do with my struggles with romantic love. I've written several rough ideas that have an introverted male protagonist dealing with his struggles, how he overcomes it, his lu...

Re: Questions regarding your first VN ever

1. How much time it took for some of you to create your first VN? 2. Was it a solo project, and did you do everything yourself? 3. How long was it in terms of playtime? (EDIT: And what was the word count?) 1. My first VN was a college project, and therefore it was created with time constraints. I n...

Re: Cafe Memoria [BxG][Comedy][Slice of Life][Waitress][Free

I played the demo a while ago, and finally got around to playing the game like I meant to! Aw, the VAs all did such a good job! I really like Mikaela's VA, and Aurelia's was absolutely adorable! She had my favourite voice of all the charas, it was so cute! For some reason Ryne's VA kind of reminded...

Re: is FL Studio really all that bad? Other programs to use?

Surprised nobody mentioned Reason! Although it's not cheap (~$400) and being little complex, it's worth using and is pretty powerful. If you can master the rack wiring (a virtual rack), then you can create some pretty neat effects / instruments. Heck, if you have the money, you can use it in conjunc...

Re: Shout For Joy, Share Your Happiness

Just got a raise at my job! It's only +0.35 but that adds up in the long run. Talked to the director of my department to thank him; he said I deserved it :D

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

What I don't understand is why they wouldn't issue a warning first. In all my years, across all sorts of forums, we've only ever banned someone without warning if they do something serious, like instigating a raid. 99% of bans were from people who were issued a warning and refused to comply, which ...

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

If I could be banned for lurking, id be banned from every forum ive ever set foot on. Have you tried something like Reddit or Tumblr? Both should have communities that would work well for more esoteric subjects, or large communities for more popular ones. I haven't tried them but will take a look. ...

Okay, so there's nothing wrong with lurking around forums, right? Today, I've found out I've been banned on this other forum, simply for lurking. Really...? How many times do you hear somebody getting banned for that? :x EDIT: I've tried to appeal my case to the admin, but he's such an a****** about...

Re: ~Nakajo! [BxG][SchoolLife][Nakige]Update 7/17

This game looks promising and interesting! I just went through your blog, and I have to admit I have a bit of a soft spot for Sakako. Considering her background, she's just the type you'd want as your girlfriend. Or it's just I like girls with glasses :wink: Bookmarking and keeping an eye on this. G...

Re: Artist for Hire! (OPEN) (Sprites, CGs)

I'd like to recommend Ezri! Her work is top-notch and exceeds my expectations. The communication between us was excellent, and sent out progress and completed works within a reasonable time frame. Oh, and she's willing to listen to any questions and concerns you may have. I'd like to hire her again ...

Yaaaay~ Finally finished it! First of all, I'm very thankful that I stumbled to this VN! It just boosted my courage to voice my characters! I like the voice acting!

Re: Cafe Memoria [BxG][Comedy][Slice of Life][Waitress][Free

Played this last night and it was good! Art was very slick and well done and I liked the transitions between locations, very smooth. I was playing in a quiet location so I didn't get the chance to have sound (booo~), so I'll have to go back and check out the music/voices. I'm glad you liked it, des...

Re: Guilty Pleasure Anime

I guess the Kantai Collection anime would fit in here. I've read quite a bit of negative reviews questioning the writing and numerous inconsistencies. Yes, I admit it's not the best anime out there, and some parts could use some work. But it's the characters that leave me wanting more - they're love...
