Re: Good story but decent art

I think visuals are important for first impressions before you download, that is they make people want to download your game. It may be more difficult to prove you have great writing in a game just based on the landing page. Illustrations can be simple, they don't need to be complex, but the more i...

Re: This is long or short?

In my experience, a lot of people measure the length of visual novels in terms of how long it would take to read them. I just googled average reading speed and the first result tells me it's about 200-300 words per minute, so 12k-18k words in an hour, which would make a 70k word story roughly 4-6 ho...

Re: The Dandelion Girl is Back (On Steam)!

Wow, I remember reading this way back when I was first getting into VNs! It's really cute. Good luck with the steam release!

Re: looking for menu image buttons

You could probably find some good ones if you go through Alte's list of links to icons and clipart in the Links to CC Resources section.

Re: A multiplayer visual novel/dating sim

Three years later, there are any new ideas on this? I'm interested. Yes, I believe the OP of this thread is one of the developers of Monster Prom , a multiplayer VN that came out last year and is an absolute joy to play with friends. They also have a more recent DLC for it that I've been meaning to...

Re: Otome/BL sprites

As well as the excellent Creative Commons section here, a lot of people post game assets for free or cheap on itch.io. Here's just a search for assets tagged with "visual novel."

Re: Dating Sim Engine (DSE) 4.0! Day Planner and Event Manager

I'm experimenting with this code for the first time and I seem to have added too many periods for the day planner screen to deal with - right now they're stretching off of the screen like this (there should be a Monday, Saturday, and Sunday in there, but you can't see them): screenshot0002.png I'm a...

Re: Lovecraft (?xG) (Action/Adventure)

This sounds really fun! I always like stories that borrow from Lovecraft, especially the ones that are probably making him roll over in his grave. I really like your character designs too - it's really cute how they each have their own colour that kind of makes a rainbow, and their outfits are all s...

Re: Coffee Mixer [Friendship][Pixel]

This looks super cute! I love the look of the catperson with the little top hat especially. Do you get to choose which ingredients to mix to summon people?

This is really cool! I've been wondering about a good way to implement custom pronouns. Thanks for sharing!

Re: The Light at the End of the Ocean [Friendship][Ontological Mystery][Point-and-Click][Commercial]

I've updated the main post with some new screenshots now that the new background artist, Chiharu-J , has been working on adding some lovely colour! I've also put together a little website for marketing . If anyone gets a chance to take a look at the site, let me know what you think of it and if ther...

Re: Through the Panels • [Slice of Life/Comedy] [DEMO]

I've been enjoying the twitter updates on this for a while! It sounds like such a fun concept and I really love the art and GUI. I think it will definitely be interesting to read about all the different kinds of relationships you can form with the characters, and to see how that affects Mimi's writi...

Re: Helix Felix [BxB][R18][Sci-Fi]

I'd love recommendations of others to look into for satire fodder. I think Loveless is the only one on my look-into list at the moment. A couple other catgirl VNs I've heard of (but haven't read, so I'm not sure how useful they'll be to you) are Neko-nin exHeart and Let's Meow Meow. You might also ...
