Re: A Character's Voice

A trick that I use is making the two most prominent characters in the story foils to each other. That way, their opposing traits are highlighted even more because they are constantly interacting with each other. Examples of foil duos: Optimist vs pessimist. Grumpy vs upbeat. Shy vs outgoing. Straig...

Re: A Character's Voice

I used to have the same problem as you where my characters are 'textbook perfect,' but they still come across as boring + sounding the same as the rest of the cast. I solved this by giving my characters 'quirks' based on their lifestyle and backstory. A pessimistic character might also be a prankst...

Re: A Character's Voice

If you feel like your main characters are all alike, then they're probably all of the 'blank slate MC' variety I assume? The MC doesn't have many of such facets after all. The situation may define their 'extreme situation' personality where the actions seem compliant or based upon the situation. If...

Re: Why are you making your current visual novel?

I am making my current visual novel for several reasons. I had the idea stuck in my head for awhile but lack of art really stumped it. After getting the sprites from Mikomi I realized I really had to go through with this. Collaborating with others made it seem more real and attainable. I've always b...

A Character's Voice

Hello everyone! I have a problem on truly developing a character's voice. I typically write in first or third point of view. I have developed well rounded characters but they seem rather stiff when I write the draft, including the main character. Here's an example of an 'okay' voice: What am i? Who ...

Re: Alice in Neverland: Seeking BG + GUI artist

Hello everyone! I added that I'm looking for an additional artist for the GUI. Really I'm just looking for a textbox and choice buttons. So if you'd like to expand your portfolio or give back to the community I would greatly appreciate it!

Re: Alice in Neverland: Seeking background artist

Update 7/3: Hello everyone! Currently the script, sprites, BGM, and voice are all completed! My main focus of now are the backgrounds. There are 4 of them, mainly in a simple cell-shaded style. A few have time/effect variants. 1) Woods 2) Fairytale woods (+ night and fairy versions) 3) Underground h...

Re: Alice in Neverland [Adventure/slice of life] Update 6/30

6/30: Peter's lines have been completed! Now all characters have partial voice acting. To show some content, here is an example of an in-game CG done by shortycake.

Re: ReWound 101: ReRun! [ENG] [OTOME] [FREE]

Hi! I had tried playing the original but maybe I didn't download the correct one because I didn't end up getting it in English. Is the game in two separate languages or a mix of both? The art is REALLY pretty ^^ Having original art makes the game more exciting and fresh~ I'll definitely play this on...

Re: lucid dreaming - [gxb] [gxb] [friendship]

This sounds very interesting! I love anything concerning dreams :) I think you can take it a lot of different ways, like if one of the doors leads to something strange/incoherent or maybe a nightmare even. A lot of my dreams don't quite connect or will have something odd thrown in haha I will defini...
