Making my own Visual Novel

I know this is kind of crazy but I really want to make my own visual novel. I have acquired at least a good amount of design skill to make the UI from my 8 months of schooling. And perhaps figure out Ren’py or whatever program I decide to go with to make it. I usually am not so bad at learning new things because of my strong interest in it. ^^; I have been wracking my brain for ideas and it all keeps falling flat as I try to do a pivot (design school ftw lol) for the storyline and it just falls apart. It just isn’t solid enough yet. I definitely don’t want to do something that is so overused and tired.

On another note, my Code:Realize game FINALLY arrived today. I was like UGGGG.. I hope it’s not lost. And I went out today and it was in the mailbox! Woooo! Last time I am ordering something without tracking even if its just within Canada, lol. Or, well if its at the opposite side of Canada anyway.

Andddd… I didn’t end up posting this so I’ll just update here again that I’ve already finished most of the routes and was starting on Lupin’s when my stupid Vita decided to conk out on me… I forgot when the last time I saved was. Anyway, would just need to do a bit of a skip-a-thon again I guess.  DAMN I’m amazed that the vita managed to just turn on to the screen it died at. o_O; Though I don’t know why it didn’t warn me that the battery was dying, ugh. I just did St. Germain’s route and man was it… heavy, lol. I am not too sure about his route though as he is actually a bit of a yandere. e_e; He was saying that he really wishes he could lock her up and have her all to himself so she’ll never think about another man ever again, lol… Why can’t they just not add a yandere in a game? It’s getting old =_=’ with all the brotherly/mature types with yandere tendencies. oTL It’s like they just can’t help themselves. *sigh*

OH! OzMafia! is getting released tomorrow and I’m really excited! This is the first time I’ve actually waited for a release and would be playing with everyone else who buys it on that day. 🙂

Otome Games!

I find it so funny that I installed WordPress just so I can blog about my current obsession. I’ve heard of otome games since a long time ago, but I’ve never thought much of them. I was even thinking like, what’s the point of dating simulators? They’re not even real. And it never occurred to me that it is way more than that. There’s a story in every game and I’ve been missing out! Though honestly there hasn’t been that many titles that were translated to English. This genre was only getting more love starting last year.

I would like to make a post about each game I’ve played so far and my thoughts about each route. I don’t know if I will go as far as making a post for every single character and whatnot but I definitely want to talk about it. I just completely finished Amnesia : Memories (good endings) and to be honest, I wasn’t entirely too impressed until I racked up the courage to finish Ukyo’s route. I was so scared of him that I had to use a walkthrough just so I can avoid getting any of the bad endings. ^^;; Yeah I am a wuss, haha! And that was when I actually appreciated the game. It just all came together and I even discover more things about it as time goes by. I was just blown away by Ukyo’s story. T-T I feel so sorry for the guy.

I would now like to talk about it some more so I will now put a ‘Read More’ link after this if you don’t care about spoilers and you’ve finished the game (ah, and one spoiler from Nameless).
