Re: Here goes nothing...tell me I'm NOT crazy

Yup yup. :) Here basic education is 100% free, but from high school and upwards you have to buy your books yourself and you might have to pay for some special courses. For example, I'm in an art-specialised high school, so we have to pay a little for the art courses and in exchange we get good tools...

Re: 3d art vs hand drawn art

The bad things about 3D in my opinion is that the pieces done with aren't in fact invidual: once you have seen the model from a couple of different angles, you know what to expect. In 2D on other hand the characters look always at least a bit different as the artist's feelings and skills waver. 2D i...

Re: Do you approve swear words in a VN?

Anyone finished a VN and got tips they want to share? Don't expect too much of yourself, don't make too epic plans, and enjoy making the VN. :3 Most people fail because they try to make something too long and pretty, but because of having no experience of completing a short game, it may feel too he...

Re: College Romance II - Rise of the Younger Brother

Myself I will not critique on the style, but I have to say it's kind of weird to expect much response for the pictures when the artist's work has already been featured in several other VNs and there aren't any major (or even minor?) differences to what it was in those works. Personally I'd be more i...

Re: Here goes nothing...tell me I'm NOT crazy

Heh, I think many European countries have free education anyway... The Nordic ones at least. :) And contrary to what some people might think, the quality is pretty good too, at least it is here. Most teachers have to have the highest possible degrees besides their reasonable salaries and many countr...

Re: Survey on Preferences for Interaction

Seldom. Too frequent choices bother me because I want to be able to enjoy everything of the game - to get every CG, to read every line, and so on, which can get annoyingly hard if there are too many choices. KNs are nice, too, and some stories are better without choices... But in many cases, choices...

Re: Forum Suggestion: "Previous Projects" user field

Isn't that something you could put in the "Projects" field just like your current ones? :o Some people have them in their signatures, too. Myself I don't see a new field as neccessary.

Re: Delusional Triggers a la Chaos; Head

No spoilers please, BCS. Not too nice when you're playing the game, seriously, especially when it's one worth actually playing... ;_; You made me a sad panda! Edit : Huh, wrong alert kind of, I heard it is actually from pretty close to the beginning... Though as someone who didn't trigger the negati...

Re: Mirai Imouto

I found MI a really lovely game. It really smells of NaNo and LSF spirit in its own way... Nostalgic indeed. :) The plot wasn't the most unpredictable ever, but very sweet and touching, making MI the kind of VN you'd like to play to warm you up on a rainy day. It's nice to see people make games with...

I really hope your situation will turn out for the better, Mugen...

Re: Writers wanted

But I don't understand why give away games for free ?! sorry but couldn't resist the question. Because you're looking for the joy of creating and finishing instead of just profit, perhaps? Or you have a message to deliver with the and want as many as possible to be able to read that message? Or you...

Re: Dream wish (ugh lame title -_-')

I'm not a music artist at all, in fact that's the first time I tried composing any music. I'm more of a graphic artist really, although I went a bit lazy on the graphic. Which means I'm very happy that the music seems as good as it seems ^_^ Woah, seriously?! O_O To think you could do that well and...

Re: Dream wish (ugh lame title -_-')

I played it already. The first time I played it I thought the Hero's actions was kind of gay then in the end only I realize that it wasn't a Hero but a Heroine. The story it about a girl and a weird creature So you assumed the protagonist was the weird creature, and the creature was a girl, or what...

It works perfectly, so no worries! :D Saya no Uta inspired? That's great... :o Congratulations on entering the VN scene, neowired. ^^ I played the game, and I liked it. Despite the adultish and sad aspects, in general the game had a cute feel to it, which both the graphics and music complemented wel...

Re: 2009 Lemmy Award Discussion

I get the idea that Hime, for example, protests at the idea of awards because they might cause people to aim specifically for an award when making their VN, but that if someone downloaded one of her stories because it had been nominated and then really enjoyed it, then she'd still be pleased. I don...
