Re: Analogue: A Hate Story

I've been eagerly anticipating this for quite some time. I've been a fan of Scout's since day one, really, so I'll be one of the first in line for this. And I'll probably get right into it too, but I'm very careful with my mood when it comes to Scout's stuff. I put off playing Digital for almost a f...

Re: Katawa Shoujo released

Just finished Hanako's route. I went with my #2 choice first, and hope to put off #1, Rin, to the very end. Hanako's route did some things very well, some things a little boringly, and some things somewhat poorly, but overall I enjoyed my time with it. I think the ending was a bit messier than the m...

Re: Why, IMO, it's hard finding a game to like as a female g

But in games, we're not dealing with humans, are we? We're dealing with with scripts and sprites and code and models and so on. But the thing is, these characters are more than just the sum of their parts, than bits of code and a few shiny graphics. In a very realized way, thanks to the power of th...

Re: Non-keyword arg after keyword arg?

Looks like someone beat me to it while I was typing this up, but to expand upon KimiYoriBaka's reply with examples: The ConditionSwitch function expects pairs of one condition (a) and one image (b) to be passed to it. The arguments should go something like this: ConditionSwitch( a, b, a, b, a, b, ke...

Re: Songs of Araiah

I'm not really big on the idea of sequels, but I do have to confess that very early on, I wanted to turn this into a series, or at least give it a second half. Maybe parts of that want are still sprinkled into the story, and that turns into rather nasty bait for readers who crave more and won't have...

Re: LSF Forum Mandates - Introduction

Finally, I'm tired of all the complaining about this and that project getting too much attention (recently someone even said that these days EVN projects focus too much on nice-looking visuals and efficiency! since when were those bad things???) or there not being enough BxG games and such. You can...

Re: Super High School Level LP (Dangan Ronpa)

Read through the thread today, and at first it started off modestly, but after going through the entire first chapter......... Man, that was exciting stuff... It's an amusing idea that's well executed and highly stylized. I'm so glad I got the chance to check this out, as I wouldn't have heard it ot...

Re: Now what could I be up to again... this time

After many a year, the gauntlet has been picked back up. Many will shudder in anticipation, many more in fear. I hope, naively, for the day the limitless fire may be doused, but alas, the one force of this world that springs more eternal than that of hope is the vicious cycle of revenge and more rev...

Re: Why do you make Visual Novels?

I've always loved writing, but I also love music and looking at pretty art. I used to dream about being a movie director or something, but realized pretty early on that it's very hard to succeed in that field. My reasons are very similar to this. The VN medium is the perfect blend of others that al...

Re: Posting encouraging and useful feedback on WIPs

I'm generally a pretty quiet guy when it comes to posting opinions about WIPs and even completed games, not because I'm afraid to voice an opinion, but because the project or game in question fails to pass an "interest threshold". There isn't enough content to go on, or it'ss nothing I haven't seen ...

Re: Multiple writers

I live halfway around the world from my co-writer and we don't have any trouble. At least, things aren't slowed down because we're cowriting. It's mostly motivation drains and creative blocks that get in the way. As the native English speaker of the two, I tend to edit and touch up upon what my budd...

Re: Games about building strictly platonic relationships

Most of my games actually have platonic relationships. Mirai Imouto actually focused on a sibling love relationship, without all that creepy incesty stuff. Unfortunately, fact is, the ONE story I have with a romantic relationship is also by bounds the most popular piece I wrote. It certainly might n...
