Re: How to write characters that people love in a short time

Simplest way? There's a formula for creating character sympathy. Use a combination of the nine following ingredients. You need at least 5 of them. Using 6-7 of them is best. (Taken and paraphrased from Eric Edson's The Story Solution - seriously, go buy it.) Excellent advice. (Adding to notes.) -- ...

Re: Improving romance in games with rivalry and respect

I really like his model for building a comedic romantic relationship. -- It's very different from the typical (boring) stat-building style; by simply saying what the character wants to hear, or outright bribery with dates and gifts. However, it would be quite challenging to create this, mainly becau...

Re: [Tutorial] Making a Contents page / screen

Oh, I almost forgot your other question! ... if you know, is it possible to add the chapter select button to the main menu, instead of the in-game menu? Yes! You add a link to the Main Menu exactly the same way you would to the Navigation (in-game) menu. -- However, if you go to the main menu at any...

Re: Dialogues in VN

Because if someone makes a statement about a writing style that you disagree with, they must be a troll. Trolling has clearly become far more sophisticated since the Rick Roll. :lol: Caveat Lector sweetie, don't feed the troll. -- They write stuff like that specifically to get your attention. Reply...

Re: Strong characters, but weak plot?

Keep in mind, Walt Disney Corp supports the 'cultural norm' of 'sweet Virginal non-violent innocence' in their female characters almost rabidly. It's absolutely no wonder to me that Walt Disney chose this sort of female for a Villain. Oh, Disney is super creepy. So super creepy. A prime example is ...

Re: Strong characters, but weak plot?

... although I'm an academic, I come from a working class background and find myself frustrated with works of art whose aesthetic normalizes and universalizes middle class morality too much.

OokamiKasumi, what a great post! I loved your discussion of traditional romance structure...and the class based analysis suddenly makes a number of things clear to me that weren't before. LOL!

Re: Strong characters, but weak plot?

...I have very strong characters, but a very weak plot. While my story is primarily character driven, I feel I feel I put them in a place where there's not much plot, or that the plot itself is uninteresting. First, I think we should clarify what Character-Driven means. Character-Driven does NOT me...
