Music Importance

#1 Post by isobellesophia » Thu Oct 24, 2019 10:51 am

Hello everyone.

Might just gonna ask if music is important in the main game? Or maybe it is just for fun?
Some musics are just for playing, or even suiting it in the events of the game like actions, love scene, or even argument.

I know that music is part of the game, but is it nessecary?

Thanks.

Music isn't necessary, clearly. You can have a game without music. (Heck, you can have a game without pictures. I remember playing a lot of text based games back in the 80s, some of which were pretty good!)

But music does add ambiance, can set the tone, and otherwise elevates the game. (Just like, say, beautiful art or good writing.) So I think it's worth including. (With the caveat that you're better off not having music than having music that doesn't work with the game.)

I see that, thanks for your answer!

I also heard that some visual novels had no music as i last asked since i was new in LSF.

Thanks!
