Re: Voice Snippets vs Voice Over

I don't care whether a game is voiced or not, but if it is, I'm not a fan of voice snippets. I find them a bit awkward and distracting. It wouldn't stop me from playing, but unless I really liked the voice acting, I would probably mute the voices.

Re: Question about using the music

Wow, that's quite a translation. I checked on the Japanese version and yes, that's correct. You can use their music in non-commercial projects, however you must credit them. They also prefer you link back to their site, but it's not required. They also state that you can't direct link to the music o...

Re: On tracing?

I don't see an issue doing it while practicing, but it shouldn't be posted publicly or used for a game, commercial or otherwise. Offering it to other people without disclosing (either as a free service or as a paid commission) is definitely unreasonable, and could land the client in trouble for some...

Re: Critique and Help Wanted for Sprite Art

At the moment its really just a concept sprite but yeah I really struggled with those dang hands. He has a super flirtatious personality too, so I'm not sure how to go about showing that in the pose. His missing arm is more of a background thing than anything but i will admit that it came about bec...

Re: Real SMS or mail features in a VN

I wouldn't want game content mailed to me. I get enough emails as it is, and it would be a pain to go digging through my folders if I wanted to look back at it. I would be happy to see an in-game mail/SMS system along the lines of Mystic Messenger, with all the content stored in game.

Re: Writing in a different language

Speaking as a professional translator and proofreader, ideally you want both the translator and proofreader to be native speakers of the target language, but it's certainly possible for a good proofreader to work with a translation by a non-native speaker. I'd never have the confidence to seriously ...

Thanks! At the very least, I'll be using my art in my own game.
