Hi! I’m Leporine, a fellow game dev and professional copy-editor, available to collaborate with other devs to polish VN scripts. I offer editing and proofreading assistance to ensure your script is sleek, free of errors and ready for release.
Due to focusing on my own projects, I am no longer advertising writing services.

Editing is a process in which I will not only correct a script’s spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes, but will also tackle flow, tone and sentences with confusing or incorrect structures. Characters and plot will also be analysed to ensure consistency. If I feel suggestions or explanations for larger edits are useful, I will add margin comments and will communicate with you at every step of the process.
My discerning read-through of any game script will catch and remove:
Voice and tense irregularities
Character and plot inconsistencies
…and much more
If you’re confident in the script’s overall structure and are just looking for someone to come in and clean up any remaining small mistakes, a proofread will cover the basics of grammar, spelling and punctuation. I won’t restructure lines or consider the characters, dialogue, plot or style.
When deciding whether your script is at either the editing or proofreading stage, please bear in mind that proofreading is the last step in the editorial process and, as such, is only meant to catch and remove the last few errors in a script. If you're still unsure, you're more than welcome to get in touch with a sample of your script, and I'll gladly advise you on whether it's ready for proofreading, or may require heavier editing.
I’ll happily work on most game genres and topics, including (but not limited to):
Slice of Life
Sensitive issues such as mental health, depression and suicide
I won’t work on projects with:
Racism, sexism, homophobia or similar topics being toxically addressed
GAME JAMS: The prices below are for freeware and commercial projects. I happily edit/proofread game jam scripts for free.

Editing: $1.5 per 100 words
Turnaround time depends on the size and scale of the job, but I'll always do my best to work to your schedule. I edit and proofread around my other professional commitments and my first priorities are quality and accuracy. Anything you give me will come back to you in a timely fashion, preened flawlessly – that’s my promise. Please get in touch and I can advise you.
