Re: Time I should give to player before choosing otome lover

I wouldn't say that it would help to determine protagonist personality but to some point obviously it would work like that(since our goals and opinion of the world is part of it). The thing is that I don't want people think about what characters WANT to hear but speak her mind instead. For example: ...

Re: Time I should give to player before choosing otome lover

I like this idea, but I think implementing something like this depends on other factors in the game, like: How long the game is (or is planned to be) How the player gains relationship points with the romanceable characters (whether they need to talk and hang out with them every available moment, or...

Time I should give to player before choosing otome lover?

I had an idea that maybe I should divide my set of romancable guys to couple of pairs so player have a little more time to decide who she wants to actually chose. This will be after prologue. My question is If people wouldn't think that this kind of possibility is a crap idea becouse they don't want...

Re: Love interest doing something gamer DON't LIKE.

Kuiper The thing is that I don't see eather of this scenrios fitting in Visual Novel since introduction is essential for player to understand what route she wants to chose. I don't like making sexual tension from the start. I am very burdened if in one moment all of guys are interested in me. Plus I...

Re: What kind of Personalities for a MC?

I stand on position, that there is nothing like blank page character. Even in games it does not really comes out good if character have no background. I like protagonist with personality becouse it is another character to entertain me. But still I feel the most connection with characters who just ha...

Re: Never-ending Whirlwind Flow

Only thing that comes to my mind is idle or strategic games that makes EVENTS. The problem is the plot between the events. Story can't just have event after event. There should be something in between. And I can't think of nothing that would be interesting enough to keep player playing without putti...

Re: Love interest doing something gamer DON't LIKE.

There's a difference between a character having flaws and a character just plain being a douchebag. "Jokes" about women looking good naked just a couple of days after meeting is a huge red flag, and I will avoid the dude like my life depends on it. And it probably does. I'm also worried about your ...

Re: Love interest doing something gamer DON't LIKE.

It is not like I WANT to avoid stereotypes. I just create interesting human not thinking about stereotype. 1. Blonde character is kind of flirty type but not towards MC, he isn't rude eather but acts very reassuring in tough situations. So... is he flirty type or not? 2. Second may seem like big bro...

Re: How do you avoid "convenient" or "coincidental" plotting

I think that even convinient coincidence can be put in very realistic way if you make their reactons very realistic and find a good reason for everything. We have tendency to omit really human- like situations or make them show only main goal which is bad thing from the core. Most people isn't psych...

Love interest doing something gamer DON't LIKE.

I am writting otome game in very realistic way with charcters and their personalities. Would it be still entertaining if they do something that normal man do in real life but we don't like it? Plus they are not very much alike with usual archetypes so it is not what you EXPECT from them. Example: Pe...

Re: Debunk Me: Gods, Demons and Spirits

What about things like imaginary friends? How would you explain this? They are not like gods, neither spirits but for example insane people have very strong believe that things that they imagine are real. And really how much of them would exist? Children often believe in things and imagine some peop...

Re: "Dating Sim" with more then 'only Romance'

I actually believe that girls are actually quite naive about friendship between both sexes. I just think that people try to so hard prove that everything are equal and that everyone thinks in politically correct way or SHOULD think in politically correct way, that they miss the truth. In case you t...

Re: Character types in Otome VN

I think what most readers respond to is not the trope, but the common qualities of characters with that trope. For example - the megane (glasses guy). He's usually cool natured, capable, intelligent, and dependable. These are all positive (or at least neutral) qualities. Some people like the megane...

Re: "Dating Sim" with more then 'only Romance'

It is just that MOST man would really say that being real friend with a girl that they are really attracted to is impossible for them. Still don't see the problem. You know why? Unless the story specifically does something like "Childhood friend that had been in love with you till kindergarden", th...
