My new idea is really just a test I think. The two games I've released have been liked and are always compared to colorful storybooks and where one has been based on a humorous myth and the other based on animals and family, I'm considering trying a romance for a change with more choices and an overarching plot in the present day. I kinda just wanna see if I can do it. And maybe I've been watching too much old anime where the romance plots are soooo frustrating, ha!

I'm working my current VN because I need the experience in drawing constantly, managing a team, dealing with money transactions, dealing with a deadline, and of course getting my hands on some dosh and experience to start expanding my portfolio and even a team. Mostly for the sake of finishing this one really, really huge idea that's been hovering inside my head for years now, and I need this game as a stepping stone to reaching that game.

The VN I'm currently working on is basically my first VN period, and I'm doing it primarily to get used to using Ren'Py and creating VNs in general. Though I plan on using NVL format for the majority of my VN stuff (since I am more of a writer than an artist), I'm having quite a bit of fun with ADV format, messing with scripting, background and character sprite placeholders, scene changes and general effects.

I am making a two games at the moment. I am a teacher and a father in addition to everything else, so my games are mostly educational at the moment. Finishing one game with my Computer Art Club students and making another mostly to teach my daughter Chinese(as we live in Taiwan)... and I'll probably improve my Chinese abilities in the process.

The two games that I finished were educational. I had a horror game in development too, but it was quite complicated and there were many challenges. I also wasn't sure if anyone wpuld play it. It was probably too scary for my students, and if I tried to make it less scary for them then I might also be making the game less enjoyable.

The VN I'm making at the moment is It Ends With Graduation. I wanted to make a tribute VN to Ren'Py itself, and use the original ideas of Pytom, for a VN he never finished. Hopefully we're managing that well enough.

There's an asexual game jam this month and the ace discord I'm on decided to do something. Personally I'm doing it because I've wanted to make something for a while now but I'm stuck at the writing phase, so it's nice to just focus on the art

Boredom? Obsession with my characters? Coincidental knowledge of coding?

These three put in a blender, I guess.

Edit: Also add excessive amounts of caffeine. slurp slurp

When there is something that doesn't exist, but I want it to exist, I can just make it. This time I applied that logic to games. I made a list of what I want, a longer list of what's wrong with all other existing games and started my journey.

I've wanted to make a video game for a real long time, and the concept I'm working on now is one that I feel my novice skillset is suited for. It's also a story that I'm really excited to tell, so I really wanna get it out there for people to see!
