Germaine is a babe, I absolutely love her. Awesome to see a new project from you! ^_^
Thanks!! :D

I tried a new style for the characters this time. Although in a lot of ways, I think this VN will be kind of a logical next step from my previous ones!

Re: Brooklyn Idol [GxG/B/NB][Music][Comedy][Slice-of-Life]

Hey, just wanted to post another update since I've totally redesigned the first post of this thread. The character designs and GUI have both been tweaked, plus I finished some work on backgrounds and now have a bunch more screenshots. Also re-wrote some of the story description and added more info a...

Re: How to Write Good Choices: A Guide

Speaking from a real world perspective, I understand why 'accumulating points to score a date' is very problematic - but dating someone who shares your interests is also a very real world thing. It doesn't typically go well if the two parties aren't similar in tastes and hobbies. Opposites may attr...

Re: How to Write Good Choices: A Guide

This is a very thoughtful article! It's interesting to divide different choices into categories. It's a new way of looking at choices when developing a visual novel. Thank you for writing it. Thanks, glad it's helpful! With 2. Points, I feel like you've already explained this half in con, but not c...

How to Write Good Choices: A Guide

I've been thinking a lot about what makes a choice in a video game interesting, so I decided to write an essay: https://yossarianiii.wordpress.com/2018/01/13/make-good-choices-a-guide-to-decisions-in-videogames/ Basically, I think you can write effective choices by dividing choices into categories, ...

Re: Vora [Post-Apocalyptic] [Pixel] [Commercial]

Hey, just wanted to say I think the art for this one looks pretty cool! I watched the video and the animation looks great. I've always thought visual novels are kind of like plays and that people could really do some interesting things if they drew more influence from plays. So I'll definitely be in...

Re: Conversation: Carin [Drama][Experimental][Romance]

Yeah, definitely! This is somewhat off the topic of VNs, but "Day I Die" was one of my favorite songs from 2017!

Re: Conversation: Carin [Drama][Experimental][Romance]

Hey, the National are great! Never expected to see a visual novel about them.

I'm actually working on a VN now called Brooklyn Idol that's set in the music scene that the National originally came from. So I'll be interested to see how Carin turns out!

Re: Brooklyn Idol [GxG/B/NB][Music][Comedy][Slice-of-Life]

Just wanted to give another brief status update: I'm doing a bit of a re-design on some of the characters. The faces and basic idea will stay more or less the same, but after thinking it over, I'm not crazy about the body proportions of the characters. Going to make some minor adjustments to make th...

Re: Your Royal Gayness Beta testing [LGBT+, humor, hybrid]

Hey, just a quick question: what's the length of this VN, and how much of a time commitment do you expect testing to be?

Would be happy to help -- just want to make sure I'm able to fit it in!

Re: Sanator: Scarlet Scarf [Dark fantasy] * [Drama]

1. What do you think of the Sanator concept in general? Looks interesting! I think the art style is what made me feel initially like I had to leave a comment here. 2. What kind of anime-related content do you like (anime, manga, ranobe, visual novels etc.)? Honestly, mostly just "cross-over" stuff ...

Re: Band Camp Boyfriend [Otome] [GxB] [Dramedy] UPDATE 1/1/18

I clicked on this because I thought it was Bandcamp Boyfriend (as in bandcamp.com, the indie music distribution website) and was like "Oh no someone's going to release an indie music game before I get mine out!" Was very relieved to see that it's band camp in the original marching band sense of the ...

Re: New Year's resolutions and your VN development

I'm going to invest money in a VN with the intention of earning it back! Which would have seemed like a crazy goal to me two years ago (back when I was drawing stick figures for sprites and when my backgrounds were just random photos I took in Dublin, for some reason). But now that I've released a c...
