Re: Looking for Sound Designer/Musician and Assistant Writer - SFW - 4/30/18

Thanks! I think I got the email! I'm at work at the moment, but hoping to get the clips listened to soon! (And then will respond via email. :) )

Thank you so much for the interest!

Re: Am I being too ambitious for a newbie?

I also would echo the advise to taking things in small chunks vs. trying to do a huge thing all at once. I do a lot of costuming and see a TON of people try, as their first project, to do super fancy armor with moving pieces, a bunch of molding, corseting, and other really challenging aspects. About...

Re: How much should someone expect to make from their visual novel?

About eroges... Well, the truth is, that in most cases, they have nothing to offer, it's pretty cheap tactic, similar to base the game on other controversial content. Eh, I'd disagree with this. Plenty of people like erotic art (and erotic writing). There's nothing more wrong about this than liking...

Re: How much should someone expect to make from their visual novel?

Hmm, I think you're conflating advertising with marketing? Advertising is a type of marketing. :) (I work in marketing.) It tends to (and I speak *very* generally here) be the least effective form of marketing. Word of Mouth tends to be the best, but getting Word of Mouth can be exceedingly difficu...

Re: How much should someone expect to make from their visual novel?

I'm curious as to the responses you get. My guess, though, judging on my knowledge of the self pub novel market is that it's highly variable, but generally pretty low. (I think the average self pub novel makes <$500 according to an article I read recently. But of course a few do fantastically - thin...

Re: How and how often do you back up projects

I dump it into Dropbox every week (if not more frequently). It just seems prudent. I do a bit of versioning, especially if I know I'm making a big enough change to the programming that it may take a while either to undo or fix all the bugs. (I tend to store these on my Google Drive. Not sure why I u...

Re: Am I being too ambitious for a newbie?

Ambition (to me at least) always comes down to how much effort you feel like putting into the project. If you're up for writing (and programming) the whole thing, it should be quite doable. It just may take longer and you take the very real risk of your energy flagging if you try to write a *huge* V...

[Filled] - Looking for Sound Designer/Musician and Assistant Writer - SFW - 4/30/18

EDIT: Just wanted to post an update! I've found two wonderful musicians, so that should be covered by now! I also have two helpful assistant writers/proof readers, so I am probably good on that (for now). Thank you amazing Lemma Soft community for helping with this! (Now just to finish the game...) ...

Re: I'm a programmer. I'm looking for team.

My guess is that Taleweaver is asking for more information on what you program/what you want to do. (For instance, are you interested in creating GUIs, creating a point and click adventure, creating minigames, something else?)

Re: How do I make a link to my website

Were you looking to pop up a window automatically, or have something that you click on in a game dialogue that takes you to the website? (I know how to do the first, not quite so sure about the second, although could probably figure it out.)

These are super cute! I have absolutely no need for them now, but find them adorable all the same! (And thank you for providing them. Maybe someday...)
