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

Made some updates to the main post. Added a character bio for Kiko.

Currently working on a central song that'll play at the end of each route. It'll be one song but remixed in totally different styles depending on which path of the game you choose.

Hey, I'm doing the whole holiday sale thing, so I thought I'd post an update about it here. You can get SRRT! for 50% off at itch.io if you follow this link: https://itch.io/s/9788/srrt-holiday-sale-2017. It's the biggest sale I've done so far!

Re: How do you support music that you like?

Honestly, I resisted Spotify and bought CDs for a long time, but recently I've switched over to streaming almost 100%. The main thing I do to support musicians is going to live shows and occasionally buying merch. (Which I realize doesn't apply necessarily to VNs.) Most likely for a soundtrack album...

Thanks! I definitely plan on trying to keep this thread up to date, and I'll let you know about how things pan out with Steam.

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

Great! How are you going to publish Brooklyn Idol? Definitely on itch.io and Gamejolt, potentially also on Steam. I haven't done Steam before, mostly because of the cost/hassle with a (mostly) solo project, but I plan on doing it for some game eventually and this may be the one! If you (or anyone) ...

OMG! Never thought of that! Why dont just paint on the actual photos? Sorry, just my curiosity cause I love the simple but effective style of your characters Thanks! :D I like using a simple style for characters because it makes it easier to do dramatic changes in poses and facial expressions. For ...

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

Hahaa, I love this!! Love the characters and the plot. Could the character artist do also bg art for this? Thanks Helyees! I actually do both character and background art on most of my VNs. Haven't done most of the BGs yet, but the majority will probably have a faux-painted look like the ones above...

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

Updated this post with more info about the story and the characters. Made some progress on the writing -- still have a bit to go before I transition into working more on the visual assets. Hoping to keep updating this thread semi-regularly with more on the characters!

Re: Editra on Mac Problems

For what it's worth, I can run Editra 0.6.99 with the newest version of Ren'Py on High Sierra. It always gives me an error the first time I try to open it (and has been doing this now for the past few OS and Ren'Py updates), but it usually works fine on the second try. At one point, I had the same p...

Re: Curious about the F2P model for VNs

I'm contemplating the risks of releasing visual novels as free to play on sites like Steam. Are the success stories too few and far between, or is this the best way to promote your VN? On the one hand, it seems that these games are more prone to getting positive reviews, as customers have nothing t...

Re: Lake of Voices [Horror, Tragedy, Dark Fantasy][GxB/G]

• What are you expecting from the story? Looks interesting! The premise and the art style remind me a little bit of Pyre . The timed choices aspect is also interesting. It sounds like maybe the way choices are set up also takes some inspiration from the Telltale style? It sounds like there'll be so...

Re: It is needed to read some VNs before creating your own one?

But my real question is... it is a requisite to read a handful of VNs before doing one? I actually think it might be more beneficial to read a bunch of VNs AFTER you've made a short project (or at least played around with Ren'Py a bit). Trying to learn from someone else's VN can be overwhelming if ...
