Re: crowdfunded OEL anime?

Well, aside from the pretentiousness of these guys ( Seriously? No good anime in the past few years? Madoka? Kuroshitsuji? Gosick? And you think you can just make the next trigun/FMA/Bebop/etc.? ), I think that it's a good endeavor. It's kinda like the doujinshi market in Japan. At the same time, I'...

Re: Used Games Pose More Threat Than Piracy

It's a problem more complicated than a simple verdict of right and wrong, I think. The thing about the secondhand market is that no profits go to the original creator at all. All the money stays with the reseller. So, if a reseller sells the same copy of a used game 10 times (for supposition's sake)...

Re: The Artificer Prologue & Chapter 1

Well, I just want you to know that I really loved the work you've done so far. I really can't wait to see what you do with this and I think that what you're doing is by far one of the most interesting projects I've seen on here in a while. I hope you persevere and finish this great beginning to what...

Re: [DEMO] Forget-me-not - (BxB VN)

I tried to run the mac version of the demo, but on launch, the game prompts me to find a .py or .pyw file to run. I'm not sure how to fix this. =[ I really wanna play this because I also feel that bxb is vastly under-respresented.

Re: What are the must-play VNs?

I can't believe this thread has gone on for so many posts without someone recommending "Umineko no Naku Koro ni". If it weren't for this series of games, I probably wouldn't have ever decided to make a visual novel. And the best part is that the translation project is going on with the full consent ...

Re: Umineko no Naku Koro ni

I really want to read it already, but my Japanese is nowhere proficient enough to try and go it alone. I'll have to wait until the witch hunt translation in the summer. But I have been reading spoilers and notes and honestly, I don't know what to make of it yet, other than it was definitely not what...

Re: Umineko no Naku Koro ni

I feel so utterly in awe of Ryukishi. For some random reason, I decided to go back and read the Bernkastel poems from Higurashi no Nako Koro ni. Imagine my distinct surprise when certain poems and phrases apply perfectly to the Umineko universe. All of this is my own speculation, so make of it what ...

Yay, glad to see this is getting underway. Is the artist a regular here or someone you found elsewhere? Maybe we can see samples sometime?

Re: Deus Ex Machina [Backburner WIP]

Looks like a story after the heart of my inner conspiracy theorist and espionage freak. I'd love for this project to get more attention, since it has an interesting premise. I'll keep my eye out to see when this project goes into development. As an interesting side note, I have a project called Deus...

So you coded the engine the game will run on yourself? Have you thought about what it will take to port it to other consoles such as Linux or Mac...

I agree with the two above, the new thread was unnecessary, especially because placing the old and new sketches together would be beneficial for comparison. - - - - - - Sketch 1 - I don't think her glasses look realistic.
