Re: Non-Anime art styles

I myself actually don't mind the art style as long as the game is good. I'm actually really forgiving when it comes to art in general myself though. I mean it takes a lot for me to decide I don't want to watch or play something.

Re: Cheap Labor: When People Undersell Themselves

Note that I said how long it took them to learn their craft. It's true that we pay lawyers more than a burger flipper because we recognise it takes time to get to that qualification, but we don't adjust based on how long you took to do it. . Actually the reason we pay lawyers more is because there ...

Re: Cheap Labor: When People Undersell Themselves

The only thing I can think of for this topic is that people are free to set their own prices and that'll determine their clients. I don't feel that underselling really "cheapens the craft" itself though. For one thing even if the cheaper artist didn't exist there's no guarantee they'd go for a more ...

Re: NSFW Content and Kickstarter

Whatever it means to be a socially marginalized group , I think I'd like to be part of one; the perks seem to be great! Trust me you don't. Also by socially marginalized group it basically means a group that recives lesser treatment in society in various ways. Granted, as a black man myself, I will...

Re: Handling Fight Scenes in VNs

When it comes to written fight scenes I prefer the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure way of doing things. Most fights in JJBA are actually over in a few hits because everyone's attacks are pretty much lethal with one good hit. Most of the fights are trying to figure out a counter to the other character's abi...

Re: Fanbase before or after demo release? Or after Kickstart

is an Anime Dude and an Anime Robot. It doesn't do anything to make me take a second look. So I'm not going to be made curious about your project to look into that based on that. We've not yet built a relationship on the threads to make me take a look at your project based on that. I might be inter...

Re: Fanbase before or after demo release? Or after Kickstart

Oh! ETA: This is a strange and perhaps shallow thing, but if the image the person has chosen for their icon here on the forums is interesting and not cliché, that will also be a factor in me giving the person's project a look. If a person has a cliché icon, that won't stop me from checking out thei...

Re: Dealing with criticism (aspiring VN creator)

Honestly, people need to stop using the word Orwellian so often, just saying...it's kind of become a reactionary, or rather OVER-reactionary, word. Here's someone saying something akin to "people should take responsibility for their words" and someone goes "1984!!". I feel so weird with how much I h...

Re: Dealing with criticism (aspiring VN creator)

It does scare me a little that anyone can hide behind the shield of anonymity to launch an attack. Me too! I'm of the unpopular opinion that this should be changed, but YMMV. Back on topic. Just gonna point out that it's the way this response to the quote above is worded is what has people confused...

Re: Dealing with destructive criticism (aspiring VN creator)

There's nothing I can say that hasn't already been said, but I can add more emphasis to the part about being thick skinned as a creator and sometime just outright ignore comments.

Re: Writing - Are clichés sometimes inevitable?

To answer the threads title, no and yes. Depends on how you definie cliche, something is only cliche if it's boring or trite IMO, but if you define it the same as a trope, then no.

Re: Freedom From Silence [RPG][Science Fantasy]

Interesting story plan, did you not mention whats up with the rest of the world? Europe, asia etc? I didn't really mention it because the story doesn't take place in Asia or Europe, but yep, I thought of that too. To put things in perspective a bit, in the Americas, 70% of the population has magic ...

Re: Freedom From Silence [RPG][Science Fantasy]

Thanks for the interest everyone, I added a few more things to the WIP and am currently working on a demo of the game. Currently I have most of a Side Red (Iii) story done and am starting on a Side Black "Dia" story.

Re: Freedom From Silence [RPG][Science Fantasy]

So my guess is we get to play from Dia's POV? Will she also have a sprite (even if it's just her head)? Is there any romantic elements in your game? Or is it completely focused on the science fantasy? I'm guessing there'd be some sort of battle system? Does it follow classic turn-based battles? Als...
