Re: How many options are too many?

In the Persona games, for example, dialogue options have no effect on the plot but can be used to customize character development. I don't think you can call that pointless, especially in such a character-driven medium like VNs. May not affect plot, but it does affect how other characters react to ...

Dear lord, you cant be serious?! An average dating sim has like 40-60 menus. Most of that HAS to be filler (or at least pointless choices)

Re: My first question...

1- Trace out your drawing on a new layer, color in a layer(s) below the line art, remove base (hand drawn) image, and save as a PNG with alpha channel. This is an example of that technique 2- Draw your character once, then draw their expressions seprately (Eyes, mouth, eyebrows, etc.) this makes thi...

Re: How many options are too many?

To be fair, the timeloop game doesn't count. I'm guessing it's more of a gameplay based VN, where the goal is to find the pink nodes in the see of red herrings. I only wish it was more gameplay based, but it isn't, there's long winded periods of exposition between each node, and a lot of them lead ...

Re: Automaton: Memories of a Broken Girl [GxB] [2012]

Sweet main menu *_* So shiny... BTW, who's the artist? Neme looks great :D Though, shouldn't she have wider hips? It's just an anatomical thing, but yeah :/ Totes looking forward to more updates on the game as they come. Artist's name is Loquatious. Another update: Webster's sketch, and here's the ...

Re: How many options are too many?

If your flow chart looks something like this: http://lass.jp/img_support/navi_1.jpg Then you have too many choices. Otherwise, I don't think a few decisions here and there are bad. See, I disagree with this. If each of those nodes on that flowchart genuinely brought something to the narrative in a ...

Re: Automaton: Memories of a Broken Girl [2012]

A small, but significant update. Here's a colored lineart version of Neme brought to you by the artist who volunteered to help me with this project.
The title screen is also done

Re: How long do you seed/peer a torrent file?

If it's something that has fw seeds, then I'll usually seed until I've uploaded twice the size of the original file. Otherwise I'll just seed once and done.

Re: Death Rule:TFR [Thriller/Battle Royal]

As a fellow horror fan, I can't wait to see this released. Poor George...he looks like he's having a rough time. Nice looking art! I also didn't realize he knew French, interesting (I didn't read the Guide, to avoid possible spoilers). If I could draw, I'd gladly provide some fan art. In an alterna...

Also, if you're an artist and are in a giving mood, feel free to do some fanart if you want. I'll add it into the game's image gallery and credit you as well. (You might also be lucky and get the game before anyone else does)

Re: My Beautiful AI [SciFi+Romance(?)] [2012]

I really like the background (*biased opinion*)

In all honesty, I'm really lookin forward to this. I rarely see games in 2nd person that isn't a dating sim (Seriously, why must there be so many of them?) and even more so one that focuses on the relationship between an AI and a human.
