I join the legion (WAAAAARGH) cuz I'm a nerd craving for some good visual novels like ever lasting summer and Katawa shoujo. My arsonal is plenty of horror games and stuff like that, but I really need some visual novel for my feel train to speed up and I figured you seemed like the right door to knock on :3 So hey! Here I am!
Plus I would realy like to work on a visual novel scenario *^* But that's for later :3

I'm a writer and a designer, and I know what makes for a good product/experience, but I'm a TERRIBLE coder. Just can't wrap my head around inits and whatsits. I've spent way too long in the pre-production phase of my first visual novel's development, and now that I have my life more sorted out I'm finally doubling down on my productivity and really putting stuff to paper.
I'm a store clerk making just over minimum wage, but I've budgeted so that I can probably save up around $400 a month with a nice $200 on the side for things like new hardware and energy drinks. Within half a year, I hope to have a rough draft for my script(likely over 200,000 words) down and a few thousand bucks saved up, which I'll use to pay an artist(webcomic, manga or otherwise) to start refining character designs based off of photographs of "models"(mostly friends who have the looks I want) that I've taken with my Sony A58k camera.
By the way, I'm gonna make around 20% of my income from donating plasma, so I'm pretty much literally and metaphorically putting my blood into my VN. xD
I'm going to test the VN across several devices and operating systems for quality assurance, all the while saving up even more money to pay a musician for around 1.5 hours of atmospheric music. I'd prefer a local musician, Randin Graves is my #1 pick if I can afford him.
I just moved from Tyler, TX to Salt Lake City, UT less than a month ago, partially because the location fit my story like a glove and I wanted as much research material as possible for a truly vibrant story, aaaand partially because the chicks here are way more attractive. Not even kidding: I moved halfway across the USA to research for my VN. Crazy, right?
My story is grounded in reality, with all the weird that comes with it. It involves numbers station broadcasts, secret agendas of secret societies and the hunt for the truth, with global implications but a human scale; slice of life structure, mystery theme, realistic cast of characters that don't fit into stereotypical archetypes like "jock" or "love interest," and tons of local Salt Lake City flavor. One of these days I'll simplify my explanation of the product for easier marketing. xD
I can't wait to present it to the world in all its polished glory, there's just so much I want to share. My inspirations include, but are not limited to: Zero Escape, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, Stein's Gate and Tool songs like Lateralus and Rosetta Stoned. I'd love to give out the title to my game, but I wanna secure the legal rights to it before giving it out publicly. For now, I'll call it Project Codebreaker.

I recently moved to California after having lived in Wisconsin, Michigan, and The Netherlands before. Somewhere in the last year I stumbled across what is visual novels and otome games (my first experience was maybe don't take it personally babe, this just ain't your story?) and I guess I sort of became a fan. Just recently I found Ren'Py and thought I'd take a stab at making my own visual novel! I have so many ideas and the people here seem so friendly I just can't wait to get started!
Also, I do not like mushrooms, am wearing purple hipster underwear, and am a cute girl!~

So I am back o.o I am still a programmer but now working for Ubisoft Massive as a server programmer. I work on a couple of VNs during my free time though not so much in ren'py as I find python a language with horrible syntax (usually I work in C/C++).
Lets see how this goes for a second time back

Nostalgia mainly brought me back after discovering said VN on an old external drive. I haven't had the artistic drive like that in a long time and figured it was long time I put my creative energy towards something productive. I'm working on a new story by myself at the moment. I intend for it to be a free project, but hopefully if some other creative folks would like to join efforts I can find the time and money to make it a real effort
Artwork (and more?) to come.

I admire your motivation, but please make sure you research the long-term effects of plasma donation on your body before you make this a necessary part of your income! (Also note that donating plasma makes a lot of people extremely hungry and you might have to budget more for food as a result.)Facelord wrote: By the way, I'm gonna make around 20% of my income from donating plasma, so I'm pretty much literally and metaphorically putting my blood into my VN. xD

We shouldn't scare off other people with unsubstantiated claims. I know, I know, yet anecdotal evidence is one wee level higher than an absence of evidence. That already happens all too often.I admire your motivation, but please make sure you research the long-term effects of plasma donation on your body before you make this a necessary part of your income!

Read the links, make sure the staff working at your local donation center are medically certified and you ought to be fine. OT: Welcome
My first post in this forum. Name is Starcaller. From Asia. Nice to meet you all!
I've been playing visual novels since I was young. My first visual novel-ish game is Tokimeki Memorial 2 (That was some good memory. I still remembered myself reading a physical guidebook cuz I couldn't understand a single Japanese on the screen. The dedication.). My fav titles are Dandelion and Tokimeki GS3. I have to admit that I didn't play as many VN as I'd like, mostly due to the fact that it's hard to find one translated in English, and I only want to play a VN with female protagonist nowadays. I generally love story-driven, choice-matter kind of games and can't get enough of it. Telltale games (like The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones), Dreamfall, or the awesome Life is Strange are some of my latest obsessions.
Recently it's been occurring in my mind that I would like to create a VN of my own as well. I've been writing some story ideas and thinking of character concepts, so let's see how things go from there. :3 It's always been my passion and dream to create a story of my own and share it with others, so hopefully I can make it happen. A bit nervous cuz it's my first try so hope it doesn't turn into a total disaster. (hahaha)
Also, my day job is a graphic/web/UI/UX designer, and occasional illustrator (depending on my project scope) in some software/IT company. So yes, I do art/design for a living. I also draw fanarts and original characters in my free time. I accept commission works if you guys need some help in designing/illustrating. Feel free to contact me for portfolio details.
All in all, just wanna say nice to meet you all. Please take care of me. ^_^

I'm really excited to be apart of this community.
Pleased to make everyone's acquaintance, I am Barca.
I'm an avid writer, gamer and a self declared "amateur historian".
The things I write about are incredibly varied but a few favorites are; Horror (Lovecraftian and Gothic), western styled stories (of the wild variety), some science fiction and many other genres.
For games my tastes are varied
And for History, my favorite eras are Ancient antiquity and the nineteenth and 20th centuries (In particular the Wild West and the Rise of Japan.)
As for why I'm just now getting involved in the creation of visual novels, I have an idea for a game... unfortunately its quite ambitious and I have to actually have some talent in the creation of visual novels. So here I am, starting from the bottom. I look forward to the grind to the top.
I'm in Spain at the moment, but I move around for work. Will be in Denmark next month, and California by the end of the following.
I don't really have a website. I do have a blog on Wordpress (same name) but it's a recent thing and I haven't really put anything there besides a lets play.
I showed up because I'm starting work on a game in the Ren'Py engine, and figured that I might as well, since this is the forum for it. It'll probably be a year or two before I have anything worth showing though, it's a free time project and I have several of those already. Right now I have the intro/prologue, with only placeholder art and barely any of the codebase.
I'm Keryee, and I'm from Hong Kong, though I'm currently studying in America!
I recently became part of a VN dev group, which is how I ended up here. We don't have a website up quite yet, but we're working on a VN together-- it's been a lot of fun, so far! We're going to do our best to get it completed, and to have a demo up in a month or so. Our group doesn't have a website up quite yet, although I am a fan-fiction writer, and have a few works up on AO3! Under the same name, of course.
As for my taste in visual novels, I do so love a good twist ending. Well, so long as it's executed well, of course.
So yeah, that's me! Nice to meet you guys~!!

I also stream on Twitch on multiple channels and am working on a story-based game of my own. Granted, it's going rather slowly, and it's not using Ren'Py. Rather, I'm using Twine, which is a neat little program to work with.
Ah what else...if you guys would ever like me to review your games, feel free to drop me a line :>
