Re: How do you feel about NSFW scenes in an otome?

I think we could do with more 18+ otome games, honestly. NSFW doesn’t just have to be there for the smut (although that’s an important factor too), you can use it to develop the characters and explore their relationships in ways that you can’t do in SFW scenes, and it can be cute, funny, romantic, s...

Re: Free Sprites and Backgrounds [CC BY-NC]

Another new sprite added, this time a teen male character in the same style as the first sprite. As before, the eye/nose layer is separate from the mouth layer for maximum flexibility.

Re: The Stone Sun [BxB] [Fantasy] [Commercial]

I love the art of this game! That background is so colorful and different! The sprites are also cute, especially the MC :D As for the story, it's intriguing, with that kind of Indiana Jones appeal, so I'm looking forward to knowing more. A pity you couldn't release at least a demo for Yaoi Jam, but...

Re: How do I use someones identity without being sued.

The type of game you’re making is going to affect how cautious you need to be. There’s a big difference between, say, a murder mystery game where ‘Amy Watson’ is a witness to interview, and an adult game featuring ‘Amy Watson’ in explicit situations. Sure, there’s a chance they might both get you su...

Re: Languages!

English is my native language, but I’m also pretty much fluent in Japanese (my spoken is a bit weak, but my written is good, and I can translate to a professional level).

Re: How can I improve this picture ?

You’ve done a good job so far of making it look closer to hand-drawn 2D, and it doesn’t have that ‘creepy’ vibe that a lot of 3D models in VNs do. Some observations: The line doesn’t really look like a hand-drawn 2D line. You can see areas where it wraps around the models and disappears (hair, belly...

Re: How competitions exploit creatives

It's the opposite. The writers should be happy that they're given the opportunity to juxtapose their name with a company and its visual novel production. That's a golden opportunity to elevate yourself from complete obscurity to on the roll to accomplish your dreams. If a company is prestigious eno...

Re: The Stone Sun [BxB] [Fantasy] [Commercial]

Returning to this thread after far too long. My project got derailed somewhat by my full-time job, but I've been working on it where I can. I made some changes to the art style, and amended the character faces and hair, along with a complete redraw of the first background. Risky, as I know how easy ...

Re: Is a game considered commercial if it's on patreon?

This is probably a grey area, but as an artist, I wouldn't want any non-commercial assets I released used on a game funded by Patreon. I mean, you say you're funding the development via Patreon, but where are the funds going if you're making it with free assets? Free-to-play games are free to downlo...

Re: Do game debuggers exist?

I'm not sure it would be very useful to have someone manually read through all the code in the game looking for mistakes. They may well be able to spot some problems, but other things aren't obvious until you actually encounter them in game, and asking your programmer to play through looking for bug...

Re: Emoji detours

Unless the game was based around text messages and chat rooms, I would find emoji in a visual novel to be very distracting and annoying. Especially if it was only using default yellow smiles, winks and so on, because frankly a lot of those are really creepy and unpleasant. Text emoji or custom chibi...
