A Lofty Idea?- the Visual Novel

Recommended Posts

Hi there, everyone!
Have you ever wanted to write a story for a visual novel? Wanted to make art/music for one? Maybe help program one?

 

For those of you who aren't familiar with them, visual novels are interactive fiction games (non-interactive stories are called "kinetic novels") that often feature anime-like art. There are many popular titles that have come out, like Katawa Shoujo, and they can be for a wide variety of audiences and be just about any genre (as far as I know, anyway).

I'd like to propose a little project for anyone interested in making (and perhaps gain support of anyone who wants to read) a visual novel for their fellow members here on the EF forums. Ideas for the story itself would be open for discussion, and there are a few programming engines that it could be made in (I've been working with Ren'Py for several months, the engine that was used to make Katawa Shoujo).

Please, if you have any interest, ideas, suggestions, or questions, feel free to put your two cents in~ ^_^

Good luck to you, Daecher~ ^_^

I'm not that familiar with Pottermore, but I have the impression that it's a lot more interactive than your average visual novel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_novel Visual novels are sometimes more like an rpg, but normally have a fairly low level of interactivity. They're generally closer to a choose-your-own-adventure story. Mostly reading, with a few choices to direct where the story goes. You probably have or will see x5 and/or me talking about it at some point. :P

O.O Your post confuses me since this topic is already in open talk... I'm just going to assume this topic was originally posted elsewhere and someone moved it before I noticed...
