So a lot of users on our site suggested character creator dress up games, so CloudNovel is going to release character creator games from now on! Mermaid dress up will be our first demo character creator game.

It's completely free for CloudNovel games for commercial or noncommercial, however we cannot allow use on commercial games if you use our character sprites on RenPy or Tyranobuilder. You CAN, however, use it for personal use on non commercial VNs and credit CloudNovel for the character sprites.

We will be releasing more character creator games soon, such as:
Princess Creator
Maid Creator
Neko Girl Creator
Prince Creator
Butler Creator
Neko Boy Creator
Magical Girl Creator


and much much moooooooooooooooore to come in the next few months :D

The princess creator will most likely look like this:

Stay tuned, and have fun with our mermaid creator!

Looks nice, although maybe split hair color/style and eye color/expression? That seems like a lot of clicking for some browsing. I saw that your princess creator did have that with the eyes at least. And what's the exact CC license here, and the pricing? Will one sprite saving come with a set of expressions or just the selected one? And will there be more character creators to come, hopefully some with compatible styles?

hi there, I'll probably fix the browsing thing later, I was in a rush to get these character creators done so probably when I get more time I'll add a "choose expressions" and "choose eye color" etc.

I actually don't have a CC license yet, but the terms are that you can use these in CloudNovel visual novels or even Ren'Py visual novels commercial OR non commercial, and you don't have to credit CloudNovel. Do you have any recommendations as to which license this would go under?

The only condition is that you can't sell the artwork you make from these character creators, like you can't sell the character you save. And of course hacking into the character creator games is against our terms of service, and we will ban people who attempt to steal our art.

The pricing is simple, you can buy points from the CloudNovel shop, $1 for 1000 points, $5 for 6000 points, $10 for 15000 points, and $25 for 50000 points. So if you buy the $25 bundle, every $1 is worth 2000 instead of 1000 points if you buy just the $1 bundle.

The character creator games now only cost 500 points! And that's for one sprite, it doesn't come with a bundle of expression packs. So if you want four expressions, that's 2000 points (500x4).

Thank you for commenting on my post, I appreciate any feedback as to how to improve the site!

You can pick out the CC license that fits your needs best from these. I see you have no noncommercial requirement and this isn't sharealike, but there's a lot of things to decide upon, so I can't single out anything.

Looking at your price system, making packs might actually be up your alley. One expression costs 50 cents but the whole set will lower that price to about 40-45cents per expression for example. The people will get their sprites faster and a bit cheaper, and you'll probably get a tad bit more because they'll also buy the last 1-2 expressions they would've skipped when judging them piece by piece. Just select hair style, outfit and colors and presto. Some people might also buy packs just to save time&effort regardless of price reduction, who knows? I'm no marketing genius.

The sprites look well. The clothes should make for a bunch of characters that exceed just schoolgirls and the vastly different hairstyles work. Perhaps different jawlines/facial outlines would be a good addition to avoid all the girls looking the same, but this generator looks variable.

One thing that will be important for better success will be compatibility. As I already mentioned before the schoolgirl and princess aren't of the same art style. I can see the princess being a fairy godmother in a story featuring the both of them to explain them looking so different or whatever, but with other sprites this won't work that well. If there's a schoolboy generator to come, it will most definately have to be in the same style as the schoolgirl. And if there are more generators to come, then adding links to each other in the generator's screen will also be a good addition.

Thanks for the link to all the CC info, I'll take a look at it and choose one.

As for the expressions packs, I lowered the price from 500 to 300 after talking over with a CloudNovel user. I might put packs in the future, but what I'm aiming for is 2500 for the ten expression for the school girl (not sure how much the pack would cost for the princess yet)

And yes i know, the art styles don't match, they are from two different artists. I have a male school boy creator coming up soon from the same artist, and that will be the complete set of school characters, just those two.

I plan to add more creators in the future from the same artists. For now I only have the chibi princess creator and the school girl creator. Still waiting on the artists to finish the art!
