Re: VNs with Second-Person Narration?

I looked it up and there's a tag on VNDB for this (sorted by rating), although it's uncommon. Only 73 VNs are tagged with it, and interestingly the majority of them are English ones - maybe because some English VN writers are more influenced by choose-your-own-adventure books, which might not be as ...

Re: Adding gameplay features without minigames

I think those are fun and can definitely make the reader feel more involved in the story if they're done well. You might want to read Steins;Gate (if you haven't already) for an example of a VN that uses cell phones throughout it. I personally thought there were positives and negatives to the way th...

Re: True Selves: Aggro Agoro: [Demo]

Sounds interesting! I'd definitely like to read something that explores online friendships and whether they can translate to the "real world", since I have plenty of online friends myself. And choosing whether to romance "males, females, both, or even none" sounds great to me! I love having options ...

Re: Phantom Ban Detective Agency [GxB/GxG] [Paranormal/Myste

I really like the art so far, especially the really cool purple flames around the title! Sounds like a fun concept as well. For your preferred social media question, I'm happy to see that you guys have tumblr, since that's the platform I've been using to write a bit about VNs recently, so it's usefu...

Re: Prince Caterpillar[BxB/ug][Romance/Comedy][NaNo16]

Hello! I just finished Prince Caterpillar and I thought it was really cute and funny. I have a small blog about VNs and I've been planning to write up a post about short BL games people might not have heard of, so I'll definitely include this one! I especially liked how expressive the sprites' faces...

Re: Ghosts of Miami [GxAll] [Mystery] [Steam Greenlight]

Aww no ghost love interests, haha. (Unless some of them are hiding it?) But lovely art - I think Luci will be my favourite too. Good luck with everything!

Re: 1st Degree [BxB] [Mystery/Suspense/Drama]

Wow I'm super hyped for a good combination of BL and murder. :) It definitely sounds intriguing to me, and I think that other than Rei I'm most interested in Aiden, both for his lovely character art and his cool-sounding personality. I agree with shadowkazaki that it would be great to have a glossar...

Re: Ghosts of Miami [GxAll] [Mystery] [Steam Greenlight]

This sounds really cute, I gave you a vote on greenlight! I'd love to know some more detail about the love interests, since I was intrigued by [GxAll]. How many romance options are which genders? Are some (or all) of them ghosts?

Re: Fifth Love [Bishoujo][Drama][Inspirational]

Thanks for the very detailed reply minzart! Confidant's route definitely sounds especially great - I'm always interested in stories that can realistically depict mental illness, and the struggle to help a friend deal with it is familiar to me as well. I'm really looking forward to more updates on th...

Re: Fifth Love [Bishoujo][Drama][Inspirational]

Fifth Love is a bishoujo game which tries to deconstruct bishoujo games. That is to say, the writing is very focused on exploring the consequences of simply taking a girl's route. This sounds like a really intriguing idea! Having noticed a lot of the conventions of popular romance VNs, and having g...

Re: Know of any games like this...?

If you like Digital: A Love Story, you should also check out the other games the same creator did that also have computer interfaces like that! There's Don't Take It Personally . . . (which is also free), Analogue: A Hate Story , and Analogue's direct sequel (although they're all vaguely related to ...

Re: My Magical Divorce Bureau!! [Comedy|Match Matching] NaNo

Oh, congratulations on finishing this! I remember seeing some of the progress posts, and it looks really fun. Adding it to my neverending list of VNs to read sometime, which is getting even longer with the end of nanoreno. :) I'm sure I'll find this out when I get to reading it, but I'm curious - is...

Re: Where the Sun Always Shines [SoL, friendship, NaNo17]

Just read this last night and really enjoyed it! I loved that it really subverted how you'd typically expect a story like this to go - I thought it would end with Blake deciding to show up at Sunny's show after all, but he didn't, which was probably a lot more realistic. It was also pretty funny and...

I'd love to read your essay when it's done!

Nice job finishing a nanoreno VN! I don't think I could handle that. :) It looks very pretty and polished from your screenshots, and your character descriptions are really funny. And I'm also a TA, so it should be cool to read a story where the protagonist shares my job! Looking forward to checking ...
