Re: Cottagecore Story [ALLxALL] [Fantasy, Slice-of-Life, Romance]

@parttimestorier Thanks for the feedback! I do plan on the MC having a set personality and a "default" name/appearance at the start if the players don't have a preference. That makes a lot of sense though, I can see how it can be jarring at times and I'll keep that in mind when writing. At the momen...

Re: How do you guys outline your scripts?

I think having it semi-outlined but then ending up straying from the outline when you start writing is a pretty normal thing to have happen! It doesn't mean your outline was wrong, just that your ideas changed and developed more as you worked. A bit of that is probably bound to happen to everyone. ...

How do you guys outline your scripts?

Hey everyone! I wanted to know how you guys outline your scripts and keep your story on track without losing the pacing? I always find myself writing way more than my desired word count but I've read branching stories that feel complete that are under 30,000 words. Right now I'm struggling with my s...

Re: GUI Feedback please

At the moment the GUI feels pretty modern with how sleek the gradient and textbox edges are.The upper right menu and name box give me more of an old noir vibe and I definitely think you could apply the same elements to the body! For example, a stronger texture, increasing the size of the washed out ...

Re: Art feedback

I think the shading is fitting for this style! With pastel, the darker shading around the line art makes the main color pop. I notice that the eyes have a really pretty shading in particular, specifically the gradient with the white highlights--if you wanted to try something more detailed maybe you ...

Thanks so much! Wren's right hands in both poses were done freehand (ha!), but his left hands were traced from pictures of my own.
No wonder!! They both match so i'd say that's pretty impressive haha

I really loved FetchQuest so I'm definitely keeping tabs on this one! Your progress is a delight to read/look at and the detail on Wren's hands specifically turned out so well??

Re: The Riddlemaster [Puzzles][Action][Fantasy]

I took a break from the Riddlemaster to write my other visual novel, Hollowed, but I got super stumped and I decided it would really boost my confidence to a least finish one story first and get some feedback from others, so I'm back on the grind again. All the art assets (backgrounds & sprites) are...

Re: The Riddlemaster [Puzzles][Action][Fantasy]

Lot of progress today and yesterday~ I finished all the 15 backgrounds with the exception of special maze variants for scenes that only happen once and I sketched out the rest of my sprites and threw them all into the game. Umm, after I finish the sketchy sprites I'm gonna try to work on cg's and co...

Oh, I'm definitely here for the riddles. c':
Are you making your own riddles or using preexisting ones?
A little bit of both~ Riddles are a little hard to think of so if I run out of ideas I might just reword some existing ones! :^)

Those backgrounds are gorgeous!
I also love the idea of having riddles, so I'm looking forward to more progress on this :)
Thank you!! I'm glad that you like riddles, I was afraid people would find that aspect boring. :lol:

Re: The Riddlemaster [Puzzles][Action][Fantasy]

Oh wow, I'm really vibing with this whole idea!! I adore seeing visual novels that play with the concept of multiple endings - I think having a set ending, but different ways to reach that ending, is something that I haven't seen often. Player input is also a really cool way to add player interacti...

Hi, it's been like ten years but after my first year at college ended I'm trying my hand at this again. Here are some completed backgrounds! I have 4/15 done but 14 of them are just maze variants so they don't take me long. Script is a little over halfway at about 10,500 words woo forest resize lemm...

Re: The Riddlemaster [Puzzles][Action][Fantasy]

I'm just going to throw these here lol idk I'll probably delete this when the backgrounds are actually finished
The forest background is where the story teller is telling the story before it goes into the actual maze
