A Simple Note: Short Visual Novel on Bullying

#1 Post by taupah » Tue Jul 18, 2017 1:24 am

Um... Hello, everyone. This is the first visual novel I've ever made. I am incredibly new to this, and incredibly nervous to be sharing this! So... please go easy on me. I want to improve, and helpful feedback is greatly appreciated... but please don't roast me like I'm afraid is going to happen ;-;

The story centers around a student named Sam who is notorious for bullying others. However, suddenly she finds herself being bullied by an unseen peer and things quickly escalate. You play as an estranged friend of Sam's who is by nature a peacemaker. However, things don't work out as planned after you discover who the culprit(s) is (or are).

So... um... yeah! I'm sure that all of you are much, much better than me at making games but uh... please take a look at it anyway. Thank you!

I'm going to go hide now!

I'm playing it right now, and so far I'm really liking both story and art - when I tried to save, though, an error occurred:

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While loading <'Image' 'gui/game_menu.jpg'>:
IOError: Couldn't find file 'gui/game_menu.jpg'.

Hmmm... Thank you for letting me know. I'll get to work on that! I believe I've resolved it.

Oh I almost forgot...I finished the game, so here's my feedback:
I'm a newbie myself, but I played a lot of VNs so I can confidently say that, for a first game, this looks high quality - the sprites were well drawn and the dialogues were ok (the idea of adding tiny bits of audio at the beginning of each one was a nice touch).
I'd also like to say that the message you wanted to convey was strong and, in the end, well executed :) so congrats for finishing your first release, and good luck on your next projects! :D
