Re: Ordinary Weapon [GxG] [Comedy, Sci-fi]

@Sonomi 1. I was unsure if sci-fi was the right genre but since the MC IS a weapon of mass destruction the game features advanced technology. Like killer robots and a machine that harasses those postmen who just leave a slip at your door instead of ringing the doorbell to check if you were home bec...

Re: Ordinary Weapon [GxG] [Comedy, Sci-fi]

1. What are your thoughts so far? Would you like to know more about anything? I'm interested in the light-hearted bits. Um, you said this is sci-fi? I'd love to hear more on this! 2. Is there anything you'd like to see in this game (as the creator of the game, I have a lot of fun tossing in other p...

Re: Raspberry Pi - powerful enough for Ren'Py?

Hey, I like your idea! I have a RPi 3 model B and a Pi Zero, and I was literally just starting a similar handheld console build. All I need at this point is a power module, as I recently acquired 3.5" lcd touch screen with the notion of making something small and portable. My love for flat thumbstic...

Re: Adding gameplay features without minigames

@parttimestorier I agree! Steins;Gate is actually my favorite visual novel. Although I have to admit, it really is difficult to get the True End without a guide. To address the negatives, you said that it was hard to tell what kind of reply you were sending. Do you think it would be better to put c...

Re: BLACK [Free][Eerie][Horror?][Late NaNo17][18+]

Hi there! This is a cool visual novel, just visually stunning. Even the font was unsettling, which only added to the creepy atmosphere of the story. I believe I got ending 5 of 9 on my first playthrough, so that was nice (sorry if the number is wrong, but it was a happy ending!). Also, I'm proud of ...

Adding gameplay features without minigames

Do you find cell phones or in-game websites obtrusive? I'm just curious because I have been thinking about adding little features like those. Essentially, the idea is to add interactive elements without necessarily delving into minigame or stat raising territory. The purpose of the cell phone would ...

Re: To Libertad [Kinetic][Fantasy][YuriJam2016]

The opening scenes were very uncomfortable. But it got better. Oh, did it get better! Martha couldn't do everything alone, she made mistakes at times, and her reasoning wasn't always spot on initially. And this is why I liked her. She learned from all of those things and it made her a better person ...

Re: Why so few yuri games compared to BL game?

Yuri themes don’t consistently appeal to a large female audience, nor do they appeal to a large male audience. Interestingly enough, I read through the entire thread that gekiganwing linked and I didn't come across any statistics supporting this idea. My opinion is that the absence of a genre does ...

Re: Parallel Percent [Anti-Hero/Sci-Fi]

Thank you very much the kind words! I hope you like the new art I've posted today! Wow...yes, the update looks great. For some reason, I prefer everyone without the jacket, but maybe it's just me and my odd preferences. You mentioned that you aren't ready to release a demo at this stage. Don't even...

Re: Naming characters, avoiding the same first letter?

Do you think names that start with the same letter are always easy to confuse with each other because of how the name looks? Or is it usually the sound of the names that gets you mixed up between characters? Generally speaking, the first letter of a name is not a problem for me. Here are is an exam...

Re: Idea for making choices less mechanical

One of the things I don't like about route-based VNs is how it basically reduces all the heroines to a simple machine. In the context of the story, you're understanding and healing their emotional problems. But in the context of the gameplay, they're just a mechanical box with a sign saying "Press ...

Well, I just finished Aleisha's route. This visual novel is so beautiful that I actually cried multiple times. Lol Somehow I got the Bad End on the first go, but the Good End was perfection. Speaking of perfection, the CGs were cute and I really liked the sprites! So many nice expressions... The the...

Looking for feedback on a character sketch [honest critique]

Hello everyone! I would really appreciate any pointers on how to improve my artwork. There isn't any color because I am absolutely terrible at coloring anything.

Does this look okay to you? If not, which areas need more work?

Re: Advice For New Producers & Team Leaders?

As a manager, you should absolutely write a contingency plan into your schedule that allows core features to make it to production. This can be done through adding a week or two buffer for every single thing that needs to get done, I would've added this in the tips too, if it'd work. However, I did...
