Re: NanoReno - 2013

Good luck everyone! In the interest of full disclosure, I've decided to do a short project that I have a story mapped out for and two sprite poses for. It will still be a hefty amount of work for the month, but I think it's time to get this project out the door! I searched the Ren'Ai archives and di...

Re: NanoReno - 2013

Maybe 3 other important characters besides the MC, or else you'll have to compromise character development trying to juggle a giant cast. Limit your branches or use points to determine events, or go the KN route and get rid of that problem of too many possibilities altogether. Thank you for all you...

Re: Dev Hard 3: Dev Hard With a Schedule

Oh this looks like a great idea! I think I'll give it a shot. Goal: 1) Finish two sprite poses (sketch/ink/color) 2) Finalize an idea for NaNoReno and start outlining. Timeframe: February 24-25, 2013 Result: Goal 2 complete, goal 1...err, both are sketched and inked, but I had to redo line-art (beca...

Re: NanoReno - 2013

I think I'm going to try and attempt something for this year's NaNoRenO, considering I've been into VN making for years and I have nothing to show for it so far... It might be something really small but I want to at least get *something* released! Maybe this is the motivation I need to get in gear?...

Re: Kickstarter Open Source Death Star

LOL this is right up there with the actual White House petition that the US government responded to last year.

All we need now is a Kickstarter to fund training for a group of rebels to bring this place down if it ever gets out of line. :D

Thanks SundownKid. At this point, I'm looking to meet like-minded people more than build a team, so I appreciate your suggestions.

Re: Game Design School and the Path to Game-Making

Hey everyone, thank you so much for the feedback! It seems like the running theme in advice is to pursue courses based on skills rather than running through a prescribed GMD program, which probably won't mean much to industry folks anyway. The art and animation classes at our school are more well-es...

Game Design School and the Path to Game-Making

I could really use some insight right now, plus I figured it would be interesting to see other folks' experiences and thoughts. I'm taking a Game Design major at a local university right now. I have a BA and so I was able to start in as a sophomore, but I'm a bit disappointed in the experience. I'm ...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

you know you have become an adult when snow is more of an annoyance no reason to celebrate. No. Go away. I do not want you anymore snow. Haha, agreed. I still like it - when it falls on a non-workday! Our complex is very good about clearing the snow, but they leave the ice alone. I guess they recko...

Re: Making Anime in Japan

This whole thread is really interesting, thank you LWR! If you don't mind me asking, you mentioned freelance - do you mean completing short animation projects like Makoto Shinkai did before he got big. Most western animation for the adult timeslot look more like Adventure Time, but I'm thinking it's...

Re: English Planetarian on iOS?!

Uhm, doesn't Visual Art's -own- Key? Why are you talking about it as if it's some random third party? Sorry for the confusion. I wasn't referring to VA being able to distribute Key games, but whether this really IS VisualArts. I was more concerned about it being a pirated copy - when the App Store ...
