Re: Generic: It's what's for dinner!

Personally, the only thing I'm really sick of in the field of romance media is love interests who throw themselves at the protagonist for no good reason. The character being insecure and desperate is a reason, the protagonist reminding the character of someone is a reason, making a good first impre...

Re: Valentine's Day 08

@M12 @_@ That's rough... Hang in there though!

@DaFool - Oho sharp eyes/memory. Yeah we got married last December ^_^ Sadly our tale of love and romance wouldn't make much of a VN. It's more of a FPS really. (I did mention she's basically a flesh and blood Asuka Langley Sohryu right? XD)

Re: Valentine's Day 08

As my wife is rabidly anti-Valentine, we'll probably spend the day trying to consciously refrain from expressing higher than normal levels of affection :P

Personally I'm indifferent to it, but anything that increases the love ratio of the world is a worthwhile endeavor ^_^

Re: Utawarerumono translation

I think it'd be closer to Sakura Taisen really - the pixel art of the strategy portion is supplemented by VN style CG's during the story portions, but this is just conjencture. I hope to get the game soon though and I'll let you know, but until then here's an English blog post about it: http://anime...

Re: Utawarerumono translation

*laughs* Well the girls are all sort of animal-human hyrbids if that helps Monele ^_^ As far as the girl types are concerned, you have your shy girl, aggressive seductive girl, clumsy swordswoman, sick girl, Beldandy girl, child-in-a-woman's-body girl... *thinks* I'm not sure if the loli or some of ...

Re: Crossover: Should it be made?

It's an interesting concept, but a difficult one. You'd need to really flesh out the relation between the other world and the 'real' world - for instance, when exactly do the originals break free of the hold of their human creators? Is it a matter of time? The death of the creator? What if someone o...

Re: The ELECT: Superheroes go ren'ai (Status and Recruitment)

Wow that'd be a big help Lee :) I wouldn't want you to commit though until I'm more or less done with the story (I'd hate to have you pass up on anything because you'd already given a commitment) so what we can do is once I finish at least one branch of the story, I'll let you know and if you're sti...

Nafai's Lessons Learned (for the Pledge Drive)

It would also be nice if people would take this time to record some of the lessons learned from game-making... both what worked, and what didn't, so those who came after don't have to keep making the same mistakes. Hopefully I can upload some snapshots for use as free backgrounds (just photographs ...

Re: Starlight - Now Avalible!

I guess one thing I struggle with is how important is the plot influencing interaction to players? I think that given the setting there is an expectation that your actions will influence the outcome of events, but they could just as easily be limited to the outcomes of relationships instead of the ...

Re: Starlight - Now Avalible!

Well took Starlight for a spin: Here are my impressions. I'll mark them all in spoiler just to be safe. (+) - Liked the backgrounds, and the change from blue stars to red-tinted BGs - The status display screen. Nice ^^ - The 'closing her legs' shot with Jade ^^ - Rose and the 'twister' portion. Quit...

Re: Hyperion, the making...

Good to see work is progressing ^_^

I think you need to make the torso portion more... chiseled I suppose I should say. (It looks a tad flat). Otherwise, not bad at all :)
