Re: are there games similar to Hierophania and Hierophania 2

What did you like? The writing or the setting? The visuals? ludeshka, the creator of Hierofania, has a modern romantic comedy called Rhyme or Reason that I absolutely love. A few recs, in terms of setting and atmosphere: A Good Wick , which has gorgeous limited visuals and strong narration, coupled ...

Re: Laniessa Art Thread

@morinoir : Thanks!! I uh, finished it about two years ago tbh. Chomp Chomp food art was done in March so they definitely could use some improving!

Re: Without a Voice [Yuri Jam 2016]

It's been a while since our last update! I'm just chiming in to say that all core assets are done - character sprites, backgrounds and the CGs! http://i.imgur.com/51TnjEB.png Here's a sneak peek at 4 of the 8 CGs ^0^ There's still a bit of work left on the visual side - I'm going to design a custom ...

Re: Dialogue Blip Voice Acting?

I love blips!!! Especially when everyone gets their unique pitch and tone! And speed/volume varying on emotions! Read Only Memories is a good example. The Shadows That Run Alongside Their Car does it too, without variance? Most old GBA games have it, I think. HuniePop has an option to replace voice ...

Re: A team of people you can trust?

Trust works both ways, by the way. If you have a good track record of some sort, it'll be easier to find committed people. My personal advice is to participate in game jams - there's always about a dozen going on at itch.io. The shorter the better. Work in small teams - maximum of five - and change ...

Re: Recommendations for games to learn from

I don't play eroge myself but I've worked on one: https://sugarscript.itch.io/cute-demon-crashers

It's a consent-focused, sex positive game.

Re: CG in visual novels - Too many or too few?

I saw 999/VLR got mentioned, and I think I should mention that the reason for the switch was budget - as in 3D was cheaper - than 2D, I think! It came up in an interview. Mikeinel's deIz has some nice integration (shading/extra poses, I think? It's been a while), though not as seamless as Minori gam...

Re: CG in visual novels - Too many or too few?

I think you should check out minori games - eden* and ef, for example. They’re not 100% CG but there are a lot of variations on the sprites, different framing and sizes. tons of alternate lighting versions, parts in-game where the sprites interact with backgrounds and just simply lots of art. All of...

Re: On tracing?

Over the years my views have gotten a lot more lenient, welp. If the person is trying to make game assets and doesn't care about learning to draw, and they have rights to the images they trace, why the heck not? It's time-saving and gets the job done. Likewise for similar cases - they just want the ...
