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, having backup volunteers who can take the reins if someone becomes u...

Re: elevator[BxG][Slice of Life][Romance]DEMO SOON!

Pixel art...yeah, I am totally following this. :3 The idea of repeatedly running into someone is a nice premise. Sometimes a situation like that will turn into friendship if one person is willing to strike up conversation, and other times you'll remain complete strangers or at the very least acquain...

Re: Should I use guitar recordings or virtual instruments?

If authenticity is your goal then a live recording is your answer. There are some instruments which vst just can’t replicate and guitar is one of those. There are simply way too many factors and nuances that go into an actual guitar performance that vst can’t make up for. And as a guitarist it’s pr...

Re: Shout For Joy, Share Your Happiness

This is going to sound ridiculous, but I'm happy about the weather today. It is just...beautiful. Finally. Lately things have been on the terrible side when it comes to weather forecasts where I live: tornado warnings, snow like 3 days later, blistering heat, and then back to bitter cold that dips i...

Re: Should I use guitar recordings or virtual instruments?

When given the option, I'd always go for the live instrument over the VST. I'd suggest giving REAPER a try over audacity. You can also use Reaper as a DAW instead of FL Studio if you want to keep everything in the same DAW (or you can route fl studio to reaper too, I suppose). To be honest, guitar ...

Re: Desservir [Medieval Fantasy][GxG] Dessert Themed VN

1) What is your general impression of this game idea? I love sweets, so I'm sold on your concept already. It looks like it will be a cute game. 2) Of the themes that I mentioned, which would you be the most excited to see executed? Body image issues. That's a topic I don't see very often and it's a...

Should I use guitar recordings or virtual instruments?

In a visual novel I'm working on, there is a rock band and I wanted to include music for performance scenes. The question is, should I use virtual instruments or try to record the songs with real ones? I'm leaning toward the first option because it's easier for me to make the songs, but they don't a...

Re: The moment of giving up

I only miss itch.io... why is it better than mediafire? And what about 4shared? I'm not Mammon, but I can vouch for itch.io. #1 You get your own dedicated page, and you can customize it with screenshots, links, blurbs about your game, etc. all while hosting the game there for free. There is no intr...

Re: May I have honest critique of this song?

Late reply! I listened to your song and from how I see it, it really have great potential! Each musician have their own style so this will be my point of view if I were to change things but ultimately its up to you so I hope my opinion helps: - Usually when I make a song, I keep it a point in my he...

Re: How would one communicate a change in language in the st

Funny enough, I like the example more than the suggestion, if that makes sense. Just having the text be visually different isn't going to mean anything to anybody if they aren't aware that the colored text means something. What's interesting are the parenthetical notes you used. I didn't consider j...

Re: The Legend Of Ocelia. [Romance] [Kinetic]

This is a really cool idea! It's always nice to see a unique spin on common fantasy tropes, so I'm curious about the lore behind this. Why do miracle children exist? Just as a suggestion, perhaps you could include a list of questions in the original post to help guide discussion about your game. Tha...

Re: Sour Cherry Twist [GxG][Slice of Life][Cooking][NaNo17]

After seeing your tags, I pretty much knew I would love this game before I even tried the demo. 1) Which characters appeal to you the most and catch your interest? I like everyone. From what I can tell, they are all fairly relatable characters. Everyone sounds authentic, like a real person is speaki...

Re: Any feedback on this? please? I'll give you kisses :*

In terms of things you would like to improve upon, what kind of feedback are you looking for?

This sounds a lot like anime music in general, which is definitely a good thing. :) ...or perhaps I watch too much anime.
