Agh, what should I do...?

#1 Post by chisa-chan » Fri Oct 26, 2007 11:09 am

Okay. It's almost completed, and the VN should be released at the second or third week of November this year. (quite late, I know, but I have many troubles in the production process).

But... I just do not know why, I recently feel if I should just turn the story into linear storyline, since it won't be so different (unless that one character might be excluded if I do this change).

Should I just turn it into VN-linear? Agh, I feel puzzled...

It's not worth it to undergo a rewrite and potentially stall the project, especially if all it's going to accomplish is to avoid comments like:

"The other paths in this game are not much different and don't provide much variety, so this game would have worked better as a kinetic novel."

I'd rather have a game out by chisa-chan plus a potential comment like that, rather than no game at all.

I dissent. Do what you think works best.

If making it into a linear one is a long process that might lead to abandoning it (think it through, try to see what is needed to make it linear), then please keep it dynamic ^^;. But if it's a breeze, then why not...
If it takes you a week, it's probably not a good idea... below that, it should be fine I think.

Look at it this way...will redoing the VN to linear push it way back, or give you such a headache that you don't want to deal with it?

I agree with DaFool...better to have a comment like that than no game at all.
