Re: The Bitter Drop [BxB] [Fantasy] [Romance]

Right, edited the OP so it's better-written and also incidentally a mirror of the OP I'm using for my TIGsource DevLog forum thread. Anyway, there's a small preview of a demo out and the actual demo's coming soon—exact release date depends on how fast I can write it.

The Bitter Drop [Modern Fantasy][Dark][BxB]

https://i.imgur.com/zZant5S.png Shadows gather over Svet-Dmitrin. Can a Yiddish feygeleh even survive here? And the rumours, the rumours about the regent Czarevna Anastasiya ... I'm, like, uneasy, but it's worse than that. My ocelles burn, my dreams are sepulchral. But in the day, there's him, ther...

Re: I Am An Interactive Fiction Writer [PAID]

Added a way to contact me and conditions on when payment should be sent, because I forgot those initially!

I Am Visual Novel Writer - PAID, CHEAP (2c per word)

Hi! My name is Isak or Zack. I'm a 26-year-old writer and programmer living in the UK. I write Interactive Fiction and Visual Novels. I am experienced with writing CYOA text games in Twine (both 1.4 and 2/2.1) and Ink and can certainly write for VNs, including character bios, dialogue, story outline...

Re: Disability and Chronic Illness in VNs

it's quite short and the disability is only mentioned in passing, but the protagonist of my shot text game, minor fall MAJOR LIFT, uses a walking-stick!

Damn, the art looks good! That plus love interests that don't look like typical VN love interests has got me interested for sure.

Re: True endings and their influence on narrative

I'm of two minds about this, because on the one hand I like the VN "thing" of make-your-own-ending but on the other hand, I want to write sequels to my games if I get a decent enough idea. I mean, I guess I could write a sequel for each of the "major" endings, but I'm not sure a fractal narrative is...

Re: Beginnings

I think there are fun clichés and boring clichés, is the thing. Late for first day at new school? Boring cliché. Forbidden love between members of two rival factions? Fun cliché. At least IMO -- YMMV here. Another thing is that bad use of language and bad grammar (especially misplaced commas or impr...

Re: Shout For Joy, Share Your Happiness

I have an appointment at a pain clinic this Thursday, where they'll re-do diagnostic tests and we might finally find out why I'm so sick!

Ahem. In less bittersweet news, I have green tea with lemon and mango in it.

Re: Guestbook

Hi, Renpy forums! I'm Isak (you can call me Zack, though~) and I'm a complete newcomer to VNs. I haven't played many and I got into the idea of making one through Twine and IF. But the medium seems really interesting and challenging and allows me to both draw and write, which is cool.

Honestly, I'm shallow for this, but what I look for in a VN is good-looking art (if it's an OEL VN, art that doesn't look like animanga is a huge bonus). I think good visuals are essential for a strong VN beginning. It is, at least partially, a visual medium! Also, I think a beginning and a set-up t...
