Starting a visual novel project! (Who knows if I'll finish...)

Postby kittycathead » Mon May 06, 2019 10:33 pm

I'm starting a visual novel project!

I'm planning on making it a non-kinetic novel, which means there will be choices involved, as well as lots of endings, and if I finish it and polish it up to decent quality, then I may put it on Steam for anywhere between $0.99 and $4.99.

It's going to be a fantasy adventure tinged with a tad of romance as well, and hopefully I can add elements of comedy in there as well. The art (and the story, of course) are going to be mine, but since I'm no good at making music, so the music might be taken from the YouTube audio library, because the music selection there is free and royalty free.

What do you guys think?

(The reason I say who knows if I'll finish is because I generally don't complete these kinds of things... it's definitely something I need to work on. No pun intended.)

I didn't know YouTube had an audio library! Neat. Will look into that for some of our games. :)

Good luck with the project! Don't forget to start small. A finished, smaller visual novel is way, way better than an unfinished big one that no one gets to read because it sits unfinished. ;)

Visual novels are a lot of fun, hope you enjoy the gamedev and writing!

Very cool! What software are you using to write it?

That sounds awesome!

Make sure to post a link here when you get it on Steam :D

Today my wife and I started our next game (very early brainstorming) and it will probably have some Visual Novel elements to it. How is yours coming along? Any tips?
