Re: Way up High [BxB] [Fantasy/Drama] [Yaoi Game Jam 2017]

I was hooked from the premise, especially because of the presence of Bailey (YAY parents in stories! I hope he doesn't die or something), but then I also got interested in the part where you can decide Sage's personality. To clear things up, is this Sage's pov? :'o The game, I mean. Do we decide as ...

Re: SuNoFes2017 [Jul. - Aug.] (Story-based game jam)

I'm not sure if there are master threads (like for anyone interested to post their availability), but you can always just post on the recruiting forum-- just add a SuNoFes2017 tag on the title, so people know that it's for that jam. It's probably better doing that, anyway, since you can explain wha...

Re: SuNoFes2017 [Jul. - Aug.] (Story-based game jam)

I was just wondering...there's not a recruitment page for SuNoFes anywhere, is there? Is there nowhere for those of us looking to join projects to find a team, a la NaNoReNo? Though I could also just have completely missed an existing one. Always a possibility. I'm not sure if there are master thre...

I absolutely love the aesthetic, and the way you presented the character bios are just fascinating-- I'm hooked . The public decree makes me wonder what the heck happene...

Re: How do your diseases/disabilities affect your hobby/work

Am not entirely sure because no official diagnosis, but I'm fairly sure I have ADHD (there were many glaring signs in my childhood) and anxiety, with a usually lowkey depression. It very heavily affected my school work, but usually only affects my hobby (VN in particular) when it's really bad and I'...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

It's been months and years of being outcast of my family and I'm honestly finally feeling the salt and bitterness stemming from it, but once again Dad is telling me to create an account for a messenger app and I feel like 8th grade is just going to repeat again :| I spent 8th grade alone in my home ...

WHO ARE WE? MOSTLY ME! WHAT DO WE WANT? MORE MENUS! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? NOW! OK jokes aside I wrote 1.5k words today, and it's about Ally! Ally and Lesath, to be precise, with appearances from Shaula and Ann. Hopefully it'll add more depth to the other Celestes as well, including Ann-- they're kinda...

Re: Visual novels vs other mediums

I feel the same, honestly. I think VNs can offer narratives and experiences other media (especially games) cannot, or at least cannot without resorting also to pure storytelling. This is because narratives aren't just words or visuals, but also things like presentation, sounds, music, and sometimes ...

Re: Examples of Good/ VNs?

It's more on the shorter side (less than 2 hours) but Locked-In by saguaro is just something I still remember, years later, and have since then held up as just the standard I want to have in my VNs, period. One of the first things that stood out to me is just how well it worked with its limitations,...

[original post] Man. I don't know if this helps but 1) you just did Ren'py vode, anyone can do that: I spent 1 month trying to change GUI for my project. My intention? To move the name box. It took one month to learn just that. Trust me, the ability to understand what the heck is happening and how ...

Re: Looking for VN suggestions

Ah. Then you understand the feeling well. I get annoyed with companies like Treyarch and Infinity Ward profiting off games with the modern war setting - taking money to give people the power trip of fighting in a 'cool' modern war that's still going on. All from the safety of their living rooms. Gi...

Re: Looking for VN suggestions

2) lacks the permeating stress and terror on the layer of brotherhood and casual nihilism and Doomed People Wanting To Come Home I guess I'm not understanding this criteria. Are you NOT wanting permeating stress to be a factor in the story? Because realistically, that goes hand-in-hand with the nih...

Looking for VN suggestions

After playing (and immensely enjoying) Blind Men and casually ignoring all the war novels I bought months prior I realized that I have no idea if there are VNs of these nature that 1) aren't made up of really young cast (below mid-20's) , 2) lacks the permeating stress and terror on the layer of bro...
