Re: If My Heart Had Wings

I'm sort of... eh about this. On the one hand: Yay, a new release! On the other hand: ... I do hate removed content in translations and localizations. Changes I can kinda understand, but full removal... It would honestly be one thing if there was an all-ages already but... I dunno, that just doesn't...

Re: Serious Question TIme: Can guys write otome games?

I think it doesn't depend on what gender the writer identifies with, but the skill of said writer. I definitely third this statement. I think a skilled writer can potentially tackle anything they try. A novice, or even experienced writer, regardless of gender or any other personal orientation can t...

Re: Nicole (otome/yuri/commercial)

Ah, Nicole. You know I am looking forward to this one, given what I have mentioned to you on Twitter. I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do with a new GUI given the one you already have is simple (almost minimalistic). It could literally be anything.

Re: Serious Question TIme: Can guys write otome games?

Anyone can write anything. In general? I don't see why a man cannot wrote otome games if they put effort into the story and characters. I know men have written them before. Guys on the forum are working on them now. Besides... I don't think JK Rowling was a young male wizard when she wrote Harry Pot...

Oh wow, his expression is some kind of amazing. It's almost like it says "I don't want to be here right now and I'm going to make sure you know it".

Re: Clearwater Crossing[GxB][Otome] (Open Dev)

Huh, I've never played Harvest moon so... maybe I should. XD

I do like the idea of a guide, perhaps a small one in a submenu so people that don't need it won't have to see it all the time?

And WHOA... that... that office... wow. That looks... WOW. I'll wanna get those points up stat. D8

Re: Former NIS America Staff Found New Indie Publisher actti

There IS always MangaGamer for "ecchi" titles so not all is lost. They seem completely open to pretty much anyone at any rate.

This is quite interesting. I hope that this does end up being beneficial to those that go to them.

*deep breath* OH BOY. I had most of this feedback written about a week ago and then... well things happened. So... yeah, that didn't get posted when I wanted to post it. I had this downloaded but I had not played it for a while because of time constraints. I really wish I had played this sooner, to ...

Re: DemonKissu! - Free Visual Novel in development!

Huh, I missed this topic... I like your idea but I really wish we had some more info. I see you mention updates, do you have a schedule or a decent amount of pre-determined information to be posted? I third a demo but anything would be nice by me. More information would definitely benefit you in the...

Re: Demon Kissu!

Precisely my thoughts. I'm more than willing to back them but more info would help them considerably in the eyes of those (rightly) more skeptical than myself. I also wonder if they plan on using a LOT of assets for the sprites and CG. Numbers could even out the goal amount in my mind. Quantity does...

Re: Demon Kissu!

You would be surprised how expensive art can get. Voice acting can be infinitely more so from what I can see. Even for what we see this isn't an outstanding amount of money for a visual novel (apparently the budget in Japan can get upwards of the hundred thousands). Besides, 5k seems to be a decent ...

I actually quite like the basic idea... but that's all that is handed to us. The basic idea. I know it says "updates coming" but for a page like this I expect... I dunno, more information? That said, I do like the idea of this. The art isn't OHMYGOSHAMAZING but it's something I don't mind looking at...

Re: Half naked boys in swimming pool, from the maker of K-ON

I'm personally interested in this but really... only because I am curious as to what the final outcome will be. I like SOL and it is harder to find shows like this aimed specifically at girls so I'm hoping it is entertaining. Though there is SOMETHING about this show that seems to work because a fri...

Re: Clearwater Crossing[GxB] (Open Dev)

While I love the idea of those indicators it feels to me like it might be excessively easy to forget what means what in the long run. I don't know if it is just me, though, I normally like the idea of either separate indicators or more... obvious ones. That said, all in all it's a fantastic idea and...
