Re: Knowing [fantasy, suspense, free] *ALPHA FOR DOWNLOAD 24

Hey, I finally downloaded it and had a chance to work my way through the beginning. As I said earlier, I really like the setting and concept, and I think those are strong points. If you're looking to make edits, the main issue I notice (and you may already plan on addressing this) is that in its pre...

Re: Endless Halls [Choose Your Own Adventure, Cute, Horror]

Agreed with Pooki and ZennyPai, the style is great and the main theme music is fantastic.

I will wait to try any demos until closer to completion, since I'm not so great at the nuts and bolts of Renpy myself, but I'm intrigued by the main post and will definitely be following this one.

Re: Telltale Games (The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, etc

My favorite part of both Walking Dead games is making Clementine swear and drink. For some reason I took great pleasure in making Lee a kind, empathetic father figure 95% of the time but having him be totally lax on minor vices. I was glad the second season gave me more options to lead Clementine in...

Re: Length of Game Extras?

FWIW, the "extra" mode of the famous VN Hatoful Boyfriend is about 4 times longer than any of the individual story branches and is easily the best part of that game. Admittedly, Hatoful Boyfriend isn't exactly the typical otome game... But the point stands: People will read something if it's interes...

They should get rid of "The Question" and make this the demo game that comes with Renpy... :D

Re: WAKE UP [Short] [Sci-Fi] [14 Endings]

I enjoyed this game. TBH, I found the handmade backgrounds kind of charming... maybe because I'm a fan of lo-fi bands like Guided By Voices and Ween. If you were interested in doing more background art yourself, you can do a lot with a cheap artist's pen, a scanner/camera, and a free image editor li...

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

Super excited to see all the people posting Haruki Murakami in this thread. He is pretty much the best, Wind-Up Bird Chronicles in particular. Currently in the middle of the pop-sci nonfiction book Godel, Escher, Bach . The book itself is good, but the best part is that it came from a used book sale...

Re: Knowing [fantasy, suspense, free] *ALPHA COMPLETE 22/01*

And if someone honestly does (!), is there some generally approved way of making it available to you guys? I'm fairly new here, but Mediafire seems to be the most common way to distribute demos. Github is another option. Personally, I'm intrigued by the concept and particularly the setting, so I'd ...

Re: Meryl & August (Adventure, slight GxB)

This is a strong demo, and I clicked to download it because I thought the original post was very strong. As for the questions: 1) Which character looks the most interesting to you? Meryl. Her personality in the demo was exactly what I expected based on the WIP post. The rest of the cast looked great...

Re: Wake Up [Short] [Sci-Fi] [Aesop] [Need BG Artist] [75%]

Looks like a cool concept. As long as you have a strong, focused story, there's no such thing as too short. One suggestion I'd make: You could might want to put a more positive spin on things in your original post, especially since you're looking for collaborators. I mean, you've nearly completed th...

Re: It Followed Us Home [Horror][Drama][Survival][Cool][Roma

Hmm... I am intrigued. A horror survival romance in the visual style of Drive? Count me in. While not a VN, one of my favorite interactive stories of all time is Telltale Games' Walking Dead video game series. Horror really lends itself well to the interactive format, so I'm always excited to see ne...

Re: Perfection (BxG, Romance, Comedy, College, Young Adult L

There's a slight element of mystery to the beginning that I liked. And the sight gag with the two beds was my favorite part. I did find it a little odd that the point of view shifted midway through--when it starts, it seems like it's going to be 1st person from Zen's perspective, then he totally lea...
