Re: Strangest VN idea you've had the desire to make

Have a list where I write my ideas down so that some year when I have time to do ALL of them, I don't leave one out. Though as many times as I have retold a certain story I suspect I am not helping the matter... Anyway the one I'm not sure about combines one of Vernor Vinge's singularity novels with...

Re: What VN is this?

Probably easier to get the two Anime series that were made from this. Gives you some insight into the story (though of course spoiling the "true" route).

Re: Heileen 3 New Horizons [commercial, dating/life sim]

Looks and plays lovely as always. Also nice that you offer the "album" as part of a bonus pack. Hopefully this will be not just the best Heileen yet, but the best selling one as well :-)

Congrats on another great title!

Re: Alta, Texas - Bx5G - Slice of Life - Javascript

Quick update. All of Linda's Path done, most of Carla's path, and half of Annette's path completed. Am hoping a good push today will get those all completed, and then tomorrow get the credits and some testing done (want to be on both ARM/RT and Desktop - so have to run compatibility tests for both),...

Re: Alta, Texas - Bx5G - Slice of Life - Javascript

Appreciate the comments, though not sure why you put your opinion in Spoilers. Progress report is that all the "infrastructure" is complete (Loading and Saving Files in JS in Win 8 took longer than I would have expected), as well as the music playing functions (and menu options to turn off and on) a...

Quick Way to Build Interior Backgrounds

One problem with many open source projects is a lack of promotion. Consider that you can get a VERY capable interior design program - Sweet Home 3D http://www.sweethome3d.com/index.jsp - that will let you build the room(s) of your dreams, then capture for use as a background in your game. Of course ...

Alta, Texas - Bx5G Slice of Life - Upd 1/13/2013 - Demo

Links in Last Message to Demo. For Historical Purposes, original post is below: Per the title, name of the game is "Alta, Texas". This is a "reboot" of Senior Year written in Javascript to follow the Win 8 UI standard and be touch compatible. Approximately 100K words. Has also been rewritten to be "...

Re: Reaching Out [slice-of-life]

This VN was one where I did everything different. The sounds only had one motif which changed depending on the mood, and I tried to simulate movement by swapping backgrounds. I probably won't do that same trick again if it feels that odd, but Rody and Jack walking as they talk is something I find d...

Re: Introducing Visual Novels to STEAM

But we can all agree that Higurashi has the best artwork, right? http://i.minus.com/idTNlj48FzpQH.jpg ...R-Right? Yokkyun for the win? Or is the resemblance unintentional? Interesting to see the discussion about getting games on Steam when I would think there is a larger audience on the various App...

Re: Do you remember your first VN?

Reading through this I guess I am the odd man out (nothing new there, right?)... I was taking my son to his Yugioh Card Battle sessions, and wandered over to a shop where they had some of the NewType magazines. This was around the time that Haruhi came out, and I went home and looked for Haruhi on A...

Re: Cliche vs. Original, Game vs. Novel, and Marketing OELVN

papillon : I've noticed Hanako games have Linux support, so, without releasing any confidential info, is sale per unique visitor higher for Linux users then Windows (if you even have that statistics)? As another data point (and probably worth what you've paid for it), the one game I've done that se...

RenPY VNs for Win 8 App Store

Has anyone looked into what it would take to get a RenPY VN into the upcoming Windows 8 App Store? Hopefully it is a little less "impossible" than the Mac OS App Store?

Re: Thoughts on "Best" Screen Size

It might be worth it to have two versions - an HD and a normal version. With a little work you can also make your game screen size independent by not hard coding any of your screen coordinates. For instance, instead of placing a graphic in the center of the screen using specific screen coordinates,...

Humble Bundle for RenPy Games?

Has anyone here tried submitting to the Humble Bundle folks: http://www.humblebundle.com/contact Since they require that you cover all three major platforms, and RenPy games by default are DM free and can run in all three, seems like a good fit. Alternately, I wonder if it would be of interest to ha...
