Re: Opening with a hentai scene, in a non-hentai-without-plo

○ The readers probably won't be invested enough in the character yet to care, so it could just have no effect at all ○ It could ruin the feel of the game, by starting very dark, when I want the story to descend to that place These are your biggest problems. Other than for virtue signalling purposes...

TAXES


In my own country, after 5000 euro of incomes, you have 20 days of time to open a personal enterprise. That cost you money. And pay 45% of all those incomes.

Re: On Moving On?

Worldbuilding is a necessary part of storytelling, but it is important to remember that worldbuilding is a support element meant to facilitate the creation of the final product - the story itself. I notice that it is surprisingly common for creative types to get caught up in worldbuilding to the poi...

Re: Emoji detours

The only people who use emojis unironically are teenagers and people who are trying to get laid via text, but I repeat myself.

Re: Games with 100+ characters

Looking at everything I've said about Fire Emblem, I don't know how you replicate any of that in the context of a visual novel. It occurs to me that there are a few manga/anime series which have massive character lists if you count all of the extremely minor characters who barely get any screen tim...

Re: How does one usually work with a programmer?

Everyone who is not in charge of the project appreciates having good direction, and programmers are no exception to this. My recommendation is that you provide direction to your programmer through the use of screenplay documents - documents which contain clear and precise instructions detailing abso...

There is a rule called "show, don't tell." There is a reason that it is a rule.

Depends on how freaky you're willing to be. Furries in particular are known to pay handsomely for porn.

Re: Opinions about Pre-Defined MC's?

Decades down the line, I wonder if VR can challenge this. It's a matter of resources and scope rather than technical capability. A whole setting which could dynamically respond to every conceivable thought and action taken by even a single variable element in the form of the player would be by nece...

Re: Opinions about Pre-Defined MC's?

I absolutely despise avatar-style player characters, and have hated them since my introduction to the differences between JRPGs and WRPGs in the early nineties. My distaste for avatar characters extends to everywhere they are found, and that includes visual novels. The reason for my contempt of this...

I'm going to go with Vegas odds and say it won't happen.

I'm also going to thrust my unwanted opinion in and say it shouldn't.

Re: Best way to start recruiting? - Keeping a team together?

Let me see if I have this right. So have a Novel Doc, A screenplay Doc, an assets spreadsheet(s), a needed asset (Spread?)sheet(s). You don't need separate spreadsheets to indicate which assets are available versus which ones are yet to be produced. You can use a column to indicate that. 1) You pas...
