Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

I don't judge Steam for what it's overall policy on pornographic content is, but Huniepop has been there for years without any action being taken until now. Combine that with the narrow or even inconsistent application of the policy as far as we can tell, and something's off.

Re: A bunch of visual novels with mature content on Steam are getting pulled/threatened with removal

I've also made a video on the subject, which you can view here: https://youtu.be/-6BcqHySoYI I don't know the games in question and I don't pretend to know exactly what Steam thinks they're doing, but hopefully we can bring a little extra visibility to maybe pressure them into at least explaining th...

Re: Book on Ren'Py/Python

This is actually fairly similar to a udemy course I've made on Ren'Py which has been moderately successful. But I don't think the book format itself will lend well to learning quite as much, nor will it be as popular.

Here's something a little different today! Chris has finished our first track, which is a mellow guitar solo song to subtly help keep you awake and engaged when the exciting action sequences are not happening. :P Here is a short excerpt from it! https://drive.google.com/open?id=13-XVbgBxvDKUaWSM7nJq...

Calling for animateable fanart![Artists]

I'm the lead on It Ends With Graduation , a VN tribute to Ren'Py. I recently animated Miko's Eileen sprite, but because it wasn't designed for live2D (through no fault of her own either, more my fault for not thinking of it ahead of time), it was both difficult and the results were incomplete. Now I...

Today, I have a pretty background done by Chiharu-J to show you that has been hastily watermarked!

I use a different textbox when the player is speaking out loud versus thinking to themselves.
Butting in here without adding anything useful, but that is a killer strategy and seems very effective as well as clear.

Re: Contrasting the Japanese and Western VN Fandoms

Okay, so maybe I'm just not getting it. But although this analysis is very interesting and cool.... I don't know what conclusions to draw from it. Idk, maybe I'm just not awake yet.

Also, shame on you for those puns. xD

Who wants to be on a Let's Play?

So I'm Emp. If you don't know me, my ego is crushed. Or something. Anyway, I have a youtube channel with a modest but nice following, specializing in Ren'Py tutorials. You can find it here . HOWEVER I feel that there's not nearly enough people who do Let's Plays of VNs, especially ones in English. B...
