Re: The last book you read or what are you reading right now

Shio_Fuu - You are actually the first other person I've encountered who is, despite it ostensibly being a fairly popular book (or so I was recently told). For a while, I was actually going the extra mile to look up all of the references. But, once it becomes apparent that the vast majority are comp...

Re: What fonts do you use/like in a visual novel?

Google Fonts having free fonts is great and all, but how do I get them on my PC? They seem to be there only for use with a website. If you are attempting to download fonts from the main Google Fonts page , add whichever ones you like to your Collection and then hit the down arrow at the top right o...

Re: Useful Twitter Tags?

That is precisely what I was looking for, Hazel-Bun! I was sorely uninformed of Twitter's etiquette, so I'm glad I decided to ask here first. I'm not entirely certain how to go about striking up conversations with other devs, but finding people to network with through shared tags sounds like a good ...

Seeking Concept Artist(s) for Humanoid Monsters

I am currently in the midst of developing a project titled Ghost Folly, but it has come to my attention that designing non-human characters is not my forte. For the moment, I need precisely ten characters designed. I am less concerned with style than I am with design creativity. Thus, I would be mor...

Re: Useful Twitter Tags?

firecat - I hadn't really considered Twitter as marketing platform until recently, when I saw it mentioned somewhere on this forum. I don't believe there is really any one platform that will skyrocket one's work to instant popularity, but I do believe that the more places where one has presence the...

Useful Twitter Tags?

I imagine that there are probably many like myself who never used Twitter previously, but eventually decided it might not be a bad idea to add it to the social media marketing drive. However, because I am so unfamiliar with it I do not have much knowledge on the proper use of hashtags. Does anyone h...

Re: I find this very disheartening....

People are cruel and often feel the need to make themselves feel better about their own shortcomings by putting other people down. Society teaches that there is only one correct standard of beauty, and this harmful idea becomes incorporated into the worldview of the general populous. Even children a...

Re: How do you write your script?

Perhaps this is a bit of an unorthodox tip, but I personally find that a visually stimulating writing environment helps me get my thoughts flowing. I use a black background with pixely green text on full screen in Word. The less surrounding distractions the better. Many years ago, I discovered that ...

Re: Secret Santa 2014

I would certainly like to participate, but at the moment I have no idea what to request. Looks like I've got a few days before the deadline, so I'll be sure to jump back in before then.

Re: What fonts do you use/like in a visual novel?

I agree that a simple font would be preferable for most visual novels, though stylistic variation would work depending on what the author is going for. For example, a pixely font if the presentation is supposed to be game-like, or a somewhat creepy font for non-serious horror. Nothing too elaborate,...

Re: The last book you read or what are you reading right now

I am currently digging into House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. I've not even reached the halfway point and I already find myself wanting to recommend this book. The presentation is so unique and engaging!
