Re: Drawing Computer programs

I use the GIMP and Inkscape like arttorney mentioned, but for painting/coloring/drawing with a tablet, you might want to try MyPaint

Re: The Madness [Psychological Horror / Puzzle]

You are not looking for the exit. You are looking for:
the puzzles. Solve the puzzles, and you will move on to the end of the game. There's three of them, but you may not need to solve all the puzzles depending on your difficulty level.

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

It's tricky to decide how much to give away. There are some financial reasons for wanting to give away prologue + 1st chapter, though. Even though it seems like a lot of the game you are giving away for free, you might get more people buying it that way. And if people don't buy it, then you haven't ...

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

Well, the problem is, it's usually difficult to tell if there are going to be twists and great development for the characters just from the intro chapter. And it's also hard to decide which character you are interested in, if they are all interesting! (I'm thinking of Voltage's games, which I still ...

Re: What do you think of individual character stories for ot

I personally *hate* the "buy a route" option - it makes it feel like I would only be getting the game to get a romance with the "stereotypical character" of that route. I much prefer buying a section of the game, as long as each section is its own story with some sort of beginning, middle, and end (...

Re: How many choices?

I am actually having the same problem right now. In the intro of the game, right now the player can choose things like when the MC met her husband, what her favorite wedding gift was, etc . . . but I'm starting to think that if I'm not going to use those choices at all, I should remove them. Though,...

Re: Some good Ren'py Visual Novels?

I second ludeshka's recommendations, and I'd like to add a 2 ~a due~ , about music and culture clash, and also Days of the Divine , an Asian-inspired fantasy legend VN, and also The Madness , if you like horror/puzzle games or want to see a puzzle/adventure game made with Ren'Py. I've reviewed these...

Free game art from the now-defunct Glitch

The MMO Glitch is no more, but they have released all their art, animations, sprites, and code into the public domain, which means they can be used for anything, no attribution needed. There's a lot of cute, whimsical art here that could be made into another great game. Check out Glitch Is Dead, Lon...

Re: Difference between with Pause(2.0) and $renpy.pause(2.0)

OK, it turns out the "with Pause" actually works just fine; I just forgot I had my transitions setting set to "None". :oops: BUT, now the difference between the two is clear. "with Pause" is a transition, so it will get skipped if the user has transitions off. pause(2.0, hard) will pause no matter w...

Re: Difference between with Pause(2.0) and $renpy.pause(2.0)

Oh, I thought you could use more than one with statement with a displayable... So, I tried it with "with Pause" as the only transition, but it still doesn't seem to do anything: "Credits" scene black with dissolve show text "Example 1" with dissolve $renpy.pause(2.0) #works fine scene black with dis...

Re: Personal Space [GxB] [Romance] [Drama] [Sci-fi]

Hey, thanks for the response! I am sorta hoping jayisgames might do a review when it's finished... I suppose it is more simulation... maybe it just feels like a VN because I've been writing sooo much text for it. It always bugs me in simulation games when it's like "Another boring day at school" "Yo...

Difference between with Pause(2.0) and $renpy.pause(2.0) ?

Hey, I'm working on the credits, and want each text item to be shown for a few seconds before fading away and being replaced by the next item. I thought I could use the transition Pause (as in "Example 2" below), but this doesn't pause at all, just zips past to the end. $renpy.pause(2) seems to work...
