Just completed #ChaosHeadNoah!

Thanks to everyone involved in making the game, getting it released outside of Japan, getting it released on Steam, and finally in writing the CoZ fan translation!

The game was great (even though I had already played the original PC version a few years ago) and I can recommend it if you like #visualnovel-s or if you're a fan of the #SteinsGate series!

I have mixed opinions on the content added in NoaH; parts of it were quite good, others, though, not so much...

I unfortunately learned about #NaNoRenO way too late to make the deadline for the game jam, but it did kick me into gear on making my first game - a sort of short prologue to a longer story I'd eventually like to tell.

But it's kinda lonely to make something without being able to chat about the process with anyone, so I'd love some company! Lemme know!

Dr. Mayhem, one of the bosses you can work under in Penny Larceny from @FictionFactoryGames ! He was the first character I completed for the game and first foray into making VN sprites. Looking back now I'm like, dang, I went hard on those gloves. His expressions were a lot of fun, a guy who's passionate but also barely functioning on caffeine.

[ #MastoArt #GameDev #VisualNovel #PennyLarceny ]

A lineup showing six poses and expressions of Doctor Mayhem, a man dressed in a classic doctor's outfit. He's slightly unkempt and tired. From left to right he is shown in neutral posture, thinking with a hand held to the air as if to hold the thought, flirty while suggestively tugging at an elbow-length glove, pouty with arms crossed, worried while fidgeting with his stethoscope, and enraged with his hands thrown in the air and lab coat billowing.

I've released a short, free #BL #visualnovel for this year's #NaNoRenO2023 called What Happened the Night Before!

It's about a couple of childhood friends who drift apart, but who later reunite and fall in love!

It's a cute, straightforward romance story with a little bit of drama, with a lot of kissing and some NSFW scenes. I hope you enjoy it! ❤️

Haven't been posting much/checking in my socials in general, been very busy with studies and unfortunately 'I am not doing enough in terms of anything' depression, but I am glad to announce that I have finally finished Old Gay Cats Look at Old Photos! [Very Small Furry Visual Novel about Old Cats looking at old Photos.]

Its around 3162 words/10ish minutes [shorter than originally planned] but I'm glad I was able to get past the doubt and constant thoughts to just leave it unfinished!

What I say to myself is that it is my first visual novel, and it's something. [and I also learned a lot about renpy and even doing my own renpy troubleshooting to get the effects I wanted as well as rebuild in one version of renpy to another, so I'm happy!]

Les Visual Novels n’étaient pas légion au #ConFI2023, sans doute du fait de l’ajout d’une charge graphique à un exercice déjà laborieux. Dans ce paysage, Minigolf et trahisons (de @xapuyo) et tous ses personnages dansants détonnent, au moins autant qu’ils font rire. Mais je crois l’avoir moins aimé pour son insolence absurde que pour son autodérision discrète de récit se sachant peu ou prou interactif. #FictionInteractive #VisualNovel

I was invited by some friends to help plan and do the art for a #nanoreno game this year. The jam starts tomorrow, so I finished designing the characters.
#GameDev #IndieDev #CharacterDesign #Nanoreno2023 #VisualNovel

4 sketchy drawings of the same character lined up as I test out various clothing styles on them. The core features of the character are short, messy brown hair and bright pink sunglasses. The first outfit is a denim jacket over a black turtle neck with dress pants, where as the second is a teal and yellow striped shirt with jeans. The headshot on the far right has the character wearing large headphones.
2 sketchy drawings of the same character. She's a chubby girl with big round eyebrows, bright eyes, and long blonde hair that is half tucked into a fluffy scarf she wears. She's wearing a winter jacket over a zipper-up sweater, jeans, and winter boots. She has a friendly expression and aura.
3 sketches of an older man while I fought with his face shape. The first two are very long, but I settled with and coloured the more square shaped one. He has large glasses, grey and white hair, and is wearing a blue shirt with rubber duckies on it. He is smiling warmly with his eyes wrinkled shut.
3 sketches of a young man with various degrees of messy brown hair and bags under his eyes. In the first drawing, his hair is tied back and he's wearing a red scarf and a tan jacket. The third drawing, he has the same tan jacket, and the red is moved to a hat he has his hair tucked into instead. He has large, square glasses - in the last drawing there are paint splatters on them.

Playtime: 17m

Oh my word, did the "don't read about the game beforehand" bite me today.

About 10 minutes into Purrfect Date, I was wondering when the scene-setting for the game would finish, and the game would start.

Yeah, turns out that Purrfect Date (which came in yet another Humble Bundle) is a visual novel (and, apparently dating sim?)

It's about cats, and it may turn out to be a wonderful visual novel slash dating sim, but as a game, for me?

Purrfect Date is a big old:

I'm happy to say that I have finally started replaying Arcade Spirits (an incredible queer-friendly arcade-loving visual novel by @FictionFactoryGames), in preparation for playing the sequel, and I remembered one of the myriad reasons why I like it: there's penguins hidden everywhere in the background art!

Why? Because penguins are the best, of course, and the devs know it.

(I don't know why, but as long as there's penguins, I'm happy)

#ArcadeSpirits #VN #VisualNovel #IndieGaming #Penguins

Visual novel screenshot. In the background, there's a realistic drawing of a small staff room with a vending machine, a table with tissue boxes on it, a coffee maker, some computer screens and a poster with a cute cartoon penguin that looks suspiciously like Gunther from Adventure Time. The penguin is seemingly hanging from a thread, or a crack on the ice, and there's the following text  in the poster: "Penguin there, baby!".

#SteamDeck has a resolution of 16:10, but our game with diegetic text in placed into the 3D world has complete level design for over 150,000+ words fitted for 16:9. So I'm seeing what sort of changes might need addressing!

Right at Chloe's heels is a red wheeled luggage.

I would be down to using #Renpy despite my general dislike of #python but unfortunately have no good way to source the art assets I'd need for a #visualNovel project. I'm very slow when it comes to even low-res #pixelArt, don't have the budget to commission, and wouldn't really get consistent enough results with an #AIArt tool like #Midjourney

Oops some folks from twt don't recognize me w/ the lipstick display pic, so here's an added #introduction!

I'm creating the #videogame Solace State for #Steam and #Xbox w/ a small team! It's a political #Queer #Cyberpunk #VisualNovel about empowering friends amid a biotech crackdown.

Though that occupies most of my time, I also love #Dance #Writing #DigitalArt #MediaStudies #RhythmGames #IndieGames #MDZS #MXTX #Fitness #WLW #novels #film #Hopepunk #GayStoriesWithGoodEndings

Nice to meet you!

This is the problem with writing when tired - I put a lot of obscure hashtags and forget so much. Let's cont. #introductions now that I am awake..

Have been a #MovieBuff for a long time, especially #animation and #GenreFilms like sci-fi, #DisasterMovies, #Action and #Musicals. Brain fog means I can't watch much anymore, but ask me my list of #MovieClassics that truly hold up, or Niche Masterpieces, oh or fav #SoBadItsGood #Movies. I love talking film

I mostly play #IndieGames now; #VisualNovel, #Simulation, #FarmingSim, #FMV, #AdventureGame - I prefer things I can finish in 2-3 sittings, preferably on the #Switch or laptop, tho I have 100+ hours in #PlanetZoo

Guilty pleasure is competition reality - I enjoy seeing ppl be good at a thing - #DragRace, #Dragula, #PotteryThrowdown, #FaceOff - name a show and I've probably watched it (not bake off tho, for some reason I can't get into that one)

#Introduction (1/2)
Well hey people, let me tell you a little bit about me.

I'm a #Fullstack #SoftwareDeveloper who loves to play with new technology (Recently been playing with some #Rust and #Tauri)

In my off time I love to kick back at my local hackerspace (They don't have a mastodon account yet. But they will, soon enough.) or on my couch with my #SteamDeck to read my way through some #VisualNovel or whatever #Game #VideoGame has caught my attention that day.

Morning! I'm eating apples to start the day as I'm working on my #indiegame Solace State!

Here's a never-before seen screenshot of this 3D #cyberpunk #visualnovel on the Steam Deck.

What do you enjoy playing on your Steam Decks, or other handheld devices? I've been playing some Chicory lately!

#Steamdeck #gaming #gamedev #unity #gamedesign #hopepunk

The video game Solace State is shown on the handheld platform Steam Deck next to a bowl of apple chunks. The screenshot of the cyberpunk 3D visual novel Solace State shows Torrent (left) standing next to Chloe (right) in an old neoclassical archway. Part of the architecture is interrupted by Solace State's unique digital cutaway shader. Diegetic text appears on the left wall. It reads: "As they round an unseen corner before entering the community center, Torrent drops Aspen Wen's fake ID. Chloe bites back a grumble at removing the well-worn sheidl of ID illusion, but she understands it wont do to march around after the de-escalation as one of the NEXIR militia."

The cover image for Invisible Seams, a closeup of Moth hugging Caesar. They look very at peace and affectionate. The game's logo is in the bottom left.
A screenshot of Moth and Caesar working on a dress together, with great focus.

A screenshot of Jasper snarkily saying "After all, that spot you're taking up right now could have been filled by a more talented tailor than yourself." to Moth.

Whoops. Should've hashtagged some extra things in there👆 sorry. I come from twitter where every hashtag is a sin.
Anyway! Some interests:

The illustration shows the four fairy teens backlit by the full moon at night. Mini Linda is also doodled in there and the text above says "Frightwood is out on!"

The image of the six potential love interests grouped around the protagonist, except that I'm also in the background in a beautifully mismatched style and tooting a party whistle. The text says "Lovewood has released on".
