Re: Any sort of life lesson you've gotten from a VN?

I've been trying to balance market tastes and my own tastes at the same time; to fund my gamedev hobbies I feel like I should be making otome games or something, but in the end I always go back to the genres that I enjoy most instead of products I think my target market would enjoy. I always want to...

Re: Happy New Year! Tell us about your upcoming 2015 Project

:D I love this thread! A wonderful New Years to everyone and here's to a smashing, productive year ahead! I feel like I hardly did anything last year, but this year I hope to pick Dolls back up and participate in the upcoming NaNoWinter and NaNo10th this March. I really hope I'll be able to get Doll...

Re: FI: Interview [Comedy/Friendship][Platonic GxB/G][Update

Ahhh it took a while for me to set aside time to play this but I'm so glad I did! This is the most fun game I've played in a while! I love the blend of gameplay and narrative and it's great to find out more about the townsfolk in a fun and engaging way. I've only played Tomi's and Hark's (oh gosh I ...

Re: Monster+Connect! [adventure, monsters, dating sim]

Ohmygosh that was really fun! I thought the dual screens was really novel and interesting, and the interactive element was a nice touch for a short story. I expected nothing short of awesome and definitely got what I was looking for ^_^ Congrats on the re-release!

Sourcing Art Assets: Thoughts and Tips

This is probably common knowledge to the experienced devs here, but I wrote an embarrassingly long blog post about different types of art assets and two ways of assembling an art team. If anyone has any thoughts or experiences they'd like to share in relation to this, I'd love to hear them!

Anyone else on Itch.io?

A few days ago, itch.io -- which, in my opinion, is a great alternative to hosting sites with pop-ups like Mediafire -- rolled out an amazing feature called Games Feed that lets users keep track of people they choose to follow. I'm actually also digging the global and featured games feed. To my know...

Re: Romance VNs/Dating Sims are dubious manipulation games?

(Posted a bit about this in the Ideas Dump thread, but I thought it was relevant here as well.) I was thinking that one way to reduce the problematic manipulative elements of a game would be to make some items concerning romance completely out of the control of the player. The player may get to cho...

Re: What would you say to first time game creators?

Something that hasn't been mentioned is network lots. I learnt a lot by connecting with devs and talking to them. Check out devs on Twitter, familiarise yourself with what they're working on, and just stay connected in general through Twitter, Tumblr, etc; devs are more willing to cross-promote and ...

Re: [Cancelled/Build released] Lemon Project ver 1.1

NO NO omg please don't apologise! I should be the one apologising, of course everyone's busy at the moment with school and what not. Please play at your leisure, no pressure or obligations at all! I'd hate it if anyone tried a game because they were subtly forced to. I'm sorry for the pesky reminder...

Re: [Cancelled/Build released] Lemon Project ver 1.1

Sorry to be a bother but we really haven't received enough feedback (there's only less than 5 so far), so I'm just wondering if people haven't had the chance to play, or if the game is genuinely bad... ;; If it's the latter, that's also important for us to know. (Btw, there are about 100 downloads f...

Re: [Cancelled/Build released] Lemon Project ver 1.1

Ahh okay the build is fixed now! Turns out that there was a bit of icky distribution code that we completely missed. OTL It must have snuck in there when we made the old demo build... I'm so sorry about this! And daikiraikimi, thanks for playing and for taking the time to provide detailed feedback! ...

Re: How can I stop making sexist games?

I don't know if this will help, but I draw inspiration from female characters that I like more so than what people tell me I should create. For instance, I tend to prefer mature women like Jeane/Kika/Seneca from the Suikoden series, so I find myself writing about them. I also tend to love really wea...
