Not 100% about a lewd game specifically, but I have this idea in mind for a 2d puzzle platformer with lewd elements, specifically based on the idea of the Lost Vikings. 4 Monstergirls (Neko, Harpy, Holstaur, Kitsune) each with special abilities (Climbing/Crawling, Flying, Stronk and magic) that the player would control one at a time to reach the objective. Any ideas what would be a good engine to make the game in?

if you know godot (or c#,c++ and friends), use godot

Which world style is better, the first (voxel data) or the second (height-el(?) data)?

Voxel data:

>easier to make buildings look like buildings

>perspective first person camera would look acceptable

>simplified mass/item quantification

>levels of buildings would not be separate levels/maps, but instead data at different height, so there would be no transitions

>can do things like marching cubes on elements of terrain in case it looks too minecraftesque

>can dig, build, design freely, easier terrain manipulation for player/enemies

<difficult fog of war calculation

<higher memory usage

?requires cross-section vision selector, meaning you need to select at what range of heights/Xs/Ys to look at so characters or objects are visible

so basically dwarvette fortress but really simplified and has sexy times in it, build your own rape dungeon, get raided by cobolds, see them get caught in sex traps

Heightlet data:

>way less memory used, only type of object and its height

>looks more "natural" at first, can be fully smoothed to look like low-poly terrain

>in fights, everything is almost guaranteed to be visible at once

>rivers and other natural forms would look pretty nice

>WAY faster development speed

<buildings look fucking weird

<can't take a stroll through a city without everything being fucking occluded by anything else

<windows, doors, walls and multi-store buildings are going to look really fucking weird

<needs transitions between levels of buildings

<weird quantification of materials

<mining will be weird, building will be weird

top-down adventuring game with a party and tactics, go and roam the plains, rape everything you can see

of course, neither of those styles are actually going to look like what is in the picrelated, it's just a quick approximation of what I was imagining it to look like, it doesn't have to be THAT blocky, I could use paralax+bump mapping on the voxels to make them look more "natural", a bit of texture could help, have more low-poly plants and objects laying around everywhere

I'm really split here, I was thinking about it for a long time now

also, (possible) multiplayer?

Personally, I'd be fine with whichever one makes it more likely that you end up actually making something playable.

However, Multiplayer can go fuck itself. If I wanted to fucking ERP with some rando, I sure as fuck wouldn't be here and I would also most likely own a fucking fursuit.

that is why I am asking here, I just do not know which has more appeal and will interest more people, as one of the great forces of creation® is people asking you to do something their preffered way

I'm also indecissive as fuck, and this is a major choice,as I most probably won't be able to move code from one data model to another

not world generation, but the way the world is stored, and as such it would be all nice for players to be put in a familliar environment, also building, destroying and other interactions would be very different, so some differences in gameplay

I know about the premature optimization specially with regards to memory usage, but really… it's not something you should concern yourself with unless you are targetting toasters for reals. You're probably doing this as a hobby, so you can optimize when you feel like it and stuff, but 500mb memory is far too low. I use a smart toaster from 2011 and I currently have 6gb free. I don't even remember the last time I saw notebooks being sold with less than 4gb memory.

You should wait until the game is closer to how it should end up before you worry about these kinds of things. Maybe you're worrying about memory, but what will have toasters screaming is the 3d itself - a lot of 3d h-games run bad on anything that isn't the best GPU available on the market, due to the "artist" using every single shader possible to hide the fact that their art is shit, on top of models with no optimization whatsoever.

But like the other anon said, 500mb memory usage is irrelevant unless you're targeting literal toasters, and if you were targeting literal toasters you'd probably want to drop the 3d entirely as well. I know that when developing as a hobby we feel like we should optimize every single thing, it's part of the fun, but if you do this with everything you will never move forward. Try to stick to certain goals. For instance, on my project I want the turn processing (heaviest part of my game) to finish processing a turn in less than 150ms even on smartphones (currently sitting at ~40ms on phones and < 10ms on desktops). I didn't optimize the turn processing fully because it's too soon to do that, but I kept a list of annoying optimizations that can be done later. You could perhaps do the same to scratch your itch for the memory usage, just write down what can be done to improve it and try to make the game work with future changes going in that direction, so that if push comes to shove you don't have to rewrite the whole thing to optimize it.

that isn't slow because it's 500mb, this isn't how things work if your memory isn't capped it won't slow down and when some garbage code is running it can pump it up for a short period but regardless the base 500mb is not an issue so just ignore it

Those are usually different gameplay types so which one are you using? Deciding which one of those features you want in the game is usually the basis for the decision not if one uses 500mb more or less.

If you're using the amount of memory you need to use, there's nothing wrong with it. For instance, I decided not to use Enigma VB on my project, because all it does is make the files neat, but it multiplies the memory usage about 6 times. In this case, the benefits don't outweight the negatives.

> lilithsthrone is 500mb at runtime, and is slow at times, and its a fucking text game

In general, text games run slowly either because 1) They use a suboptimize environment to develop it (Twine, Inform, etc); or 2) The dev doesn't actually know how to code. Usually, it's both (as seen by the multiple Twine games that also run like dogshit). Generally, these makers are meant for very simple games, so they are "optimized" for games like those, and making anything else with them will suffer.

Take Trap Quest for instance. The game runs like dogshit. Does it have to run like dogshit? It doesn't do anything particularly amazing. Inform under Git can handle 30 FPS animations with multiple images, and that's mostly a limitation of the timer, so it might even be possible to go over this with a lower-level implementation, so the images are not what causes it to lock for a few seconds every action. Hyperlinking appears to have no effect on how fast Git runs games, either. The only reasonable motives for the slow down are using some part of Inform in the wrong way. My own guess is that the synonyms are not being set up correctly, because the way Inform works is that if you don't set those the right way, every time you do anything, Inform will check every. single. object. for synonyms, even the ones that are not visible, and while that's not a problem with 50 objects, once you get to multiple thousand objects with many synonyms each, things get messy.

So I'd say set up a goal for yourself. What is the kind of machine you want to run this game? A notebook with 2gb ram? It's best if you own the target hardware, but you can get by through VMs, too. Also, while 500mb memory usage is indeed low, it's important to notice if this scales. Whenever I make something that I think might cause issues later on, I just spawn hundreds of them at once and check memory/process time to see how well it scales. Problems might not be noticeable with small numbers (Trap Quest was pretty fast in the early days), but they become apparent if you stress test them.

Here are some images of a project that i started in UE4.

I'm inspired by management games like FreeCities/PortalsOfPhereon/SlaveMatrix which are UI heavy, tons of options for building characters, and have good gameplay.

I like that they all have images (which is better than text-only) showing the shape of your character and changes to that while you play. Although, these images are somewhat limited to how much time you are willing to spend on drawing them.

This does not apply for a 3D-model where you can have each combination possible and for any, small or big, increment of a shape (morph).

My strong point so far: figured out an easy and fast workflow for exporting daz assets to UE4 without compromises (morphs, clothes, hair, materials, animations). Because of this there is a vast amount of customization possible and they work with any animation.

This is more or less a (almost finished) tech demo for myself and didn't bother thinking much beyond that. That means I want to scrap what I have and start over, but with the same back-end and assets.

So what I'm missing here is a setting and key gameplay elements that can really show off a characters change over time. Maybe a human factory? A slave trader?

I have one limitation, I want most gameplay through UI, so you don't really control a character directly. But you should be able to view how they look or what they do wherever they are in a scene or room.

I honestly never understood why people want management games so much. You're putting so much work into creating this 3D environment with morphing bodies and yet by the nature of the game, you won't fucking care 97% of the time.

A management game is a game in which you manage MONEY and RESOURCES to get more MONEY and RESOURCES. Notice the lack of "sex and women" there? Because they're not of any importance in such a game. So now you've put in all this work and the only ones who are going to notice are the people who will most likely just hack the game to get unlimited money and resources to just get what they want so they can see the few scenes that are in the game, have a quick wank, then drop the rest of the game. The rest who does play the game will simply skip over all of the sexual stuff because "Who the fuck cares, I got money to make, fucking get me back to the money making.".

To them all that matters are numbers. Just take a look at the examples you've given.

Free Cities. They're more interested in creating a fucking personal military and an orbital space station that can obliterate opposing Archologies. They also want to create as much weird shit as possible, but the actual lewd stuff is barely even a thing so you end up skipping it all the damn time.

PortalsOfPhereon. "How do I breed/get the best stats?" Again, the numbers are the most important thing here. The girls/futas are there to make money or fight for you. Then there are a few lewds with the NPC's, but that's probably less than a tenth of the game.

SlaveMatrix. These guys pretty much don't give a shit about the lewds anymore. They're jerking off to eugenics more than lewds at this point.

Want my suggestion? You've got what LifePlay, by Vinfamy, lacks. Proper 3D models. So you can probably just rip off LifePlay and try and make a Sims-type game.

If I'm wrong in any of my assumptions, then please, do explain to me what I'm wrong about and why you/anyone else finds management games with lewds to be the best thing.

What I like about spreadsheet games is the idea that your character can go to the extremes and ultimately serve for one purpose that she does best.

Example scenario:

>buy a girl

>decide her best features

>push them to the extreme (e.g huge tits)

>she increases your production greatly and becomes valuable

>get attached and decide to care or be merciful

I'm sure this scenario ticks a few fetishes which are obviously not shared by everyone. Personally, this is one reason why I like them.

Although most of them could use more visual feedback that show what they turned into or are going through, which makes it actually fapable.

On another note, PoP has actually struck a fair balance between management and having the number game translate into actual gameplay, but has basically only one lewd pic per character.

About your LifePlay suggestion (thanks btw), it's got some unique elements and hard work put into. And yes, he'd actually be better off with 2D renders for now.

But as you can guess, my interest is a management game which plays out the strengths of having a 3D-model. For example, being able to actually gauge the price of a girl by just looking at her sizes and features.

I have experimented with a similar approach. Char, hair, clothes and morphs from Daz to Ue4.

Hair were usually one of the bigger issue as most of them didn't work well/look nice.

Poly count can be for some store items really high as they aren't optimized. Shoes I tested came with ~400k. So it's probably a good idea to keep an eye on the poly count..

Very extreme morphs would also create lighting issues for me but for normal ones to make custom characters it did work well.

If you need Ue4 based animations it's possible to retarget them in Ue4. I have seen comments who claim this works well enough for them. It didn't for me but maybe worth testing it if you use it for simple animations.

Can confirm, most hairs below 100k look bad. They do work/fit okay.

>Shoes I tested came with ~400k.

Yet to find a 400k shoe.

I'm wondering, is there an elegant way to make heels work for animations which require interacting characters to be on the same height? Or animations with height morphs for that matter…

Question: Is posible create a eroge with full interactive dialogue?

It is honestly more trouble than it's worth. It's incredibly difficult to simulate natural speech with a simple AI, to the point where you'll always be better off simply using pre-written responses, or agglomerate responses. One idea I've been toying around with, is using symbols instead of actual speech to basically achieve the same goal, but even then, creating a memory model that would be good enough to make the character feel natural is a really daunting task.

Some AI made by amateurs that work regular, as I see the main problem is the sexual interactions, between responses base on a huge amount of variables between interactions. But well, is a good concept that nobody try at least.

let's say I want to make a good game, AND get mad dosh off furries

what if I split content into packs, and also enable easy modding?

this way I could make all the vanilla stuff that I like myself, and let other people do the sick shit I would never look at or the "morally questionable" stuff, while keeping me clean

shit, I could even puppet a bit and make those 'content packs' pretending to be a different person

also, it would let players to really fine-tune their experience

Experienced developer here, planning on writing a text based game - mostly because I like text better than images for lewd shit, also because I don't want to pay an artist since I have no interest in patreon or any of that shit.

My question is this - I haven't found any advanced frameworks for text based games. What I mean by "advanced" is something that takes care of the tedious shit saving/loading, UI styling/scaling, render loop, good template syntax, etc for me in a way that's actually flexible. For example, Twine breaks if you do any kind of multiple references to the same object. I'm very familiar with Twine, but I hate it. The other HTML/JS based tools are just as bad.

Most other frameworks I've seen are either entire simulated environments (which means SLOW/BLOATED) or have similar problems where I'll have to write custom serialization/parsing routines to load state correctly without something breaking which means extra work. I could write my own of course, but that's even more work since I'll also have to work out problems like UI scaling, styling, and other tedious bullshit.

I don't care about "simple" or "easy to learn" because I'm not a fucking moron, but I haven't found anything that seems like it actually meets my needs. I'm hoping someone on here knows about something I haven't found through googling because otherwise I'll have to write my own framework from scratch and I'm not especially looking forward to that.

I've also considered forking SugarCube and simply fixing the problems in it, but I'm not sure it's worth it since there are some really deep problems with how they designed the engine that I'm not sure I feel like fixing.

So, any suggestions, or am I stuck doing a fuckload of extra work just to make a decent game?

How deeply into "game" you plan on going? Inform has good save systems that just save the whole state, but I'm not sure how that works with updates to the game code. Could search for the Live Maker the japanese tend to use, it seems to have built-in save system that works very well, iirc it does survive through updates, though it's still just a better-looking Ren'py.

It's hard to suggest without knowing what you intend to do. For instance, Ren'py will work fine with VNs with a lot of character-to-character dialogue, but it sucks as soon as you start adding longer texts. Meanwhile, Twine is amazing for long walls of text, but as soon as the player actually has to interact with something it's awful, which I'm guessing is at least one tick of your list of "really deep problems".

I don't think most text game tools are very evolved, so you'll probably end up having to make your own. Coders are often not writers and writers are often not coders, and neither of those tends to have artistic skills to design good interfaces. Most tools are meant for a specific kind of developer. Twine targets the pure-writer that just wants to write a story, maybe branching a bit here and there - not really for games, at most CYOAs. Ren'py and their ilk are made for VNs like the japanese always did, but those rely more on art than on the writing, which is also why the text is restricted to a tiny part of the screen. Inform is a good middle term, but it's also like 1980s tech - literally.

I know Python and I'd rather gouge my eyes out than work with it. It's trash. If it weren't for the whole "python" thing, I'd have given Ren'py serious consideration though it's really only a partial fit at best.

>>324597

That sums up what I've found as well.

As you guessed, I have no interest in CYOA or VN style work - the game I've been designing for the past couple years is pretty complex/deep.

If it hadn't been written by idiots, Twine would be a good fit. All I really want is something to render text for me from templates (which is basically how I have used Twine in the past - all the heavy lifting is in pure JS, and I just use SugarCube to render the scene once I've done the data/state manipulation in the background), handle basic UI scaling/etc, and serialize/deserialize game state to persistent storage.

Twine can do templating okayish, and it's UI isn't utterly unusable, but it performs like shit and their idea of "Serializing" game state is basically JSON.stringify() which is a joke.

Thankfully, I do have the skillset to write my own. I can program well, I'm a fairly good writer, and I know how to do UI/UX though I absolutely hate doing it. I'll probably end up writing the parts I care about carefully, and then when it comes to the UI just having some unstyled table layout that gets the job done. Then if I actually release the game and someone else wants to help unfuck the UI, they can do that part since I'd really rather have my toenails ripped off than spend more than 30 minutes doing UI at a time.

>>324861

I'm not done with mine yet, but it's almost ready to start adding stuff to, though it's not complete to my needs. Of note, I have jury-rigged Dialogger to make dialog trees and already have a… decent… save system. The main issue with the save system is that my game is procedurally generated, so there's a lot that's intentionally not saved, but any variable you create with the variable classes is saved automatically. By default it auto-saves to local storage, but you can save to and load from files, as well. The save structure was designed to withstand game code updates.

I assumed that Inform devs would have gotten text-game developing perfectly after so much time working with it, so I did go through some efforts to replicate parts of what they've done. It has a non-blocking Rulebook system for the code, like Inform did, and it also has actions, all that exists in the world inherits Thing in some way, whatever you print is a Say object, etc. Currently it will save any of the persistent variable types you create and also all of the Unique Things. Each new type of Thing needs to be told what of its own variables should be saved, however – by default, a Thing stores only its position, but a Person also stores its states, a money bag stores its contents, etc. It's HTML5/JS using HAML/TypeScript/Compass for the project, and it's copyleft open-source.

Now the things that might be useful to you in particular:

> Jury-rigged Dialogger that exports to javascript Dialogue Trees

> Dialog Tree Processor

> While the UI was meant to look like I7 for style, it should be trivial to make it look like anything else, or even reduce it to just the printer

> UI maintains size regardless of resolution, so you see what your players should be seeing

The source is at:

https://git.catrenelle.com/reddo/the-obelisk

I have updated "dist/The Obelisk.html" to be runnable right now, though it's mostly placeholders for now, mostly testing the systems I have made to see if they work right.

The Main Menu itself is just a Dialogue Tree running, btw. It can do pretty much anything.

Jesus christ don't do those, they always look awful, and also make the games run like shit since RPG Maker is mostly single-threaded.

If you want to use any kind of maker, keep these in mind:

> The more you deviate from what the maker was created to make, the more reason you have to not use the maker at all

> RPG Maker was designed with Japanese in mind, that's why it has a tiny text box with no text alignment. This makes it terrible for any text-based games, and if you're going to bother fixing that might as well use something else entirely…

> RPG Maker, by its very nature, relies almost exclusively on the art assets you bring. So either get a good artist to make a ton of CGs, or don't even bother.

It would be easier to give you better suggestions if you gave any more info about the game you want to make other than "i can the draw!". Anyway, there are some easy engines that are carried almost exclusively by the quality of the art you put into them:

> Ren'py (Pure story and art)

> RPG Makers (Art with some bad gameplay and bad ways to convey story)

> Game Maker (The most freedom you'll get with makers, but you'll have to create the base for your game)

It's commonly used for action games, but it's actually a blank slate - it is whatever you make of it. I imagine it should also have a lot of community support with examples and such for pretty much anything. The "coding" can also be in GML (Game Maker Language) or Drag'n'Drop, which is kind of like RPG Maker's coding tbh, except a tad more powerful.

It really depends on how deeply you want to learn. You want to learn how to make things do the things they should the do? Just find something you want automated and brute force your way into making it exist, over time you start to understand how to code.

If you really want to be a good programmer, however, there's a bit more that you'd need to learn. H-devs greatest failure is not correctly defining scope, which is the first thing you should do when beginning a project. Second biggest failure h-devs make is not make code maintainable; the trick to making maintainable code is to always pretend like the person who's going to maintain it is a serial killer with anger issues who knows where you live, and the fear should make you adhere to standards that are Good Code™.

At its core, coding is about knowing logic and knowing a few magic words that vary language to language (nothing major, most of the time). But you really ought to have actual classes to avoid developing bad habits while you learn the easy bits. For instance, I still have some issues with making self-explanatory code due to creating the habit of being lazy and naming variables stuff like "a". That's a stupid mistake to make, but if I'm looking at a complex block I might lose 10 minutes or more just trying to to follow where all the "a" and "b" are going.

The best languages to learn with are those with strict typing, which means they are like strict teachers and will slap you for being dumb (their strictness coerces you into writing better code). Not sure what I'd recommend, though. C is ancient, Java has too much stuff attached to it that might make it hard to understand for beginners. Most popular languages are not strict because that makes them easier to get into, but that also makes them bad for someone just starting, as they drive you to create these bad habits. You can get an idea about coding logic by just using RPG Maker and the like, too: the blocks inside events in RPG Maker mimic coding, except it's drag'n'drop rather than writing.

C is still the best possible tool for actually learning programming.

I'm well aware of that. I've used it for years and have written thousands of lines of GML. I've made quite a few games in it.

Trust me, it's not what you want to use if your game involves a lot of GUIs (ie most porn games). You CAN do it, but all the easiness of Game Maker is more oriented towards real-time action games, not turn based or GUI games. At that point you might as well just use something with more freedom (ie actual coding, unity, etc) OR use something based towards GUI/turn based games.

>I personally enjoy SciFi and Cyberpunk

How thoroughly do you want to integrate sexuality into your world? How thoroughly do you want to integrate sexuality into your gameplay? How thoroughly are you willing to integrate your world into your depictions of sexuality?

Let's consider two examples: Iain Banks "Culture" series and Fenoxo's "Trials in Tainted Space" game. Both are sci-fi works in which wealth and technology allows humanoids to mutate their bodies according to their whims, experience altered states of mind, and (if they wish to do so) live lives of hedonistic sexual gratification.

The Culture novels push this stuff into the background, because the audience doesn't want to read about a sequence of sexual escapades. It's difficult for a sex scene to make full use of the setting. You *can* incorporate the setting into many other scenes (e.g. relativistic time dilation during a spaceship chase; wondrous materials being used to design impossible artifacts; telepathy being used in diplomatic negotiations; pew-pew lasers and jetpacks in a shootout). If you introduce high tech into sexuality then you quickly run into objections: "why am I even trying to fuck a sweaty, awkward, temperamental human instead of visiting the holodeck (or fucking my heavily-customized sexbot) (or trickling a few microvolts through my brain) (or snorting 5mg of Orgasmarin powder)?"

Fenoxo partially avoids this question by pushing the player character towards the uncivilized frontier (where fewer high-tech devices are available) and by incorporating sexual encounters into character development. The player character *could* just fuck their sexbot whenever they get horny … but they can't buy a sexbot until they've completed half of the game, and they need to fuck NPC_A in order to advance QUEST_B, so they'll probably fuck a lot of NPCs.

Your post suggests that you're planning to write a more serious game. Perhaps we could imagine a scenario in which the player character (accompanied by a love interest) performs a dangerous mission, learns surprising secrets, defeats fearsome foes, and then returns to base. At that point the characters celebrate their success (cue saxophone music). This scene makes sense in a fantasy setting (with slight complications re: disease and contraception). But if your setting includes many things (e.g. stimulants, psychedelics, entertainment) which are *better* than sex, then you'll constantly be forced to explain *why* your characters have ignored those superior options in order to perform a caveman ritual. Or you'll need to strain your creativity as you write scenes of drug-enhanced augmented-reality robot-assisted FutureSex (which may be confusing or un-arousing for your readers). Or you'll need to downplay the sex itself and focus on the emotional context (e.g. trust, dominance, insecurity, etc). Or you'll just need to ignore the setting for a few minutes so that your characters can fuck in a way that's relatable and appealing to 21st century readers.

>I need some inspiration.

Please give us some rough guidelines.

Do your people live in villages, or in cities, or on satellites, or in post-apocalyptic underground bunkers? Are we working with conventional genders, or have they been blurred by contact with extraterrestrials? Is natural reproduction still a thing or are babies born from gestation pods? Do people fuck outside their species for fun (and/or is crossbreeding possible)? Is face-to-face communication relevant, or is information exchange entirely technological? Does the protagonist fight primarily with his hands, or his tools, or his mind? What sort of things in this world are scarce enough (or desirable enough) to fight over? If your protagonist accomplishes his quest and gets everything that he wants, then how might he wish to spend the remainder of his life? Is lifespan/ageing even a meaningful concept in your world?

Look at the most "successful" games in this area. This is not an area where marketing is being used - you just make your game and put it out there. I think the literal best sellers are around 10k sales (so ~100k revenue minus DLsite costs). The best patreons are around 2~6k a month - that's barely enough to cover ONE employee if you were a company.

If the porn game is successful seems to be dependent on the fetishes they include: if you include obscure fetishes your maximum sales amount is limited, but you're guaranteed to get sales even with a terrible game (because people with obscure fetishes often don't have other options to put their money on, so you have no competition). Furries are an odd case, they have a ton of games, but they also appear to have a ton of money, so targetting furries ALWAYS works. And if we're talking about patreon in specific, pandering for specific fetishes seems to be the best way of making money.

Then for DLsite and others… the better the game part is and the less common the genre you're doing is, the more money you end up getting. Platformers usually sell well, regardless of how good they are, simply because they're rare (and they'll remain rare forever, shit's hard to make). VNs and RPGs usually sell themselves through the quality and quantity of their art alone, though you can get a bit extra success with RPGs by creating your own systems which are good.

Indie porn game dev is multiple steps below normal indie game dev. It's mostly one guy in a basement doing it as a hobby, as opposed to a small group of people doing it as a job. The closest we have to marketing is that hw guy going to every forum, every thread and shitposting, but he's jew to the max and even tries to "sign up" other creators with himself, no idea what that even ends up meaning.

>I stand by it, a good, unique game doesn't need marketing and will get around.

Slave Matrix is good and unique. The point-and-click "groping" gameplay is antiquated, but it's integrated with the bizarre monstergirl anatomy, the game's psychology variables, and the progression/economy system. The cross-breeding feature is very detailed and provides extensive re-playability. The game has sold 213 copies at $15. $3225 revenue.

Strive4Power offers a polished experience, but it contains few original ideas. The entire sex minigame was lifted from Era (as a replacement for an earlier sex minigame which was worse); the combat is bog-standard JRPG; slave psychology is a heavily streamlined version of JoNT (more playable, but less interesting). The game has 880 patrons and requires a minimum $5 pledge for early access to software. I'm too lazy to lookup DLsite or Patreon fees, so let's just use raw numbers. $4400 monthly revenue.

Maverik made a derivative game, promoted it on various porn-related forums, and maintains a social presence (via itch.io, discord, etc). Auto Eden made something special, posted it onto a crowded marketplace, and relied on word-of-mouth while he focused on extending and improving his game. Maverik earns more per month than Auto Eden has earned in total.

Please stop telling people that good games don't need advertising.

Maybe this is getting off-topic but like what dude? I just got out of mobiledev after years and I'm a physical, emotional, and spiritual wreck. I take responsibility for that as much as the job I do, it was my choice to medicate the stress and the continuous blows to reasonable human dignity primarily with booze, but I am not ever going back to the tech sector as it exists now. 6k/month would be a significant paycut from what I was earning before but with the freedom to use my own ideas and work on my own schedule? That would be irreplaceable.

I agree it's really not much of a long-term career prospect but what exactly is anymore? I've watched dozens of competent people shit on, cut loose and replaced. You are not actually earning anything resembling loyalty, working for these people. It's literally just money and a credit on your resume, but once you get too many credits you're already too old and too expensive and for any given problem there is always a much worse and much cheaper alternative that can be done by Punjabis.

I played once a (I think) flash game, where you just stuff a 2d girl with dildos and it distens her belly. It uses shitty physics for this. I can't find it anymore. I wanted to try to make a similar game in 3d anime character where you can stuff her womb or intestines with bendy toys.

First I thought I would make models with blender and use softbody physics, but it feels like it's not practical, it feels like it uses way too much resources and is glitchy.

Am I wrong and this is a good way to make the game or are there other methods which would be more suitable?

Why I want to make it 3d? the anal stuff wasn't that much fun in the 2d version because the intestines just stops after a short distance and in 3d it would be cool to see the belly morph depending on how much dildo/tentacle is inside.

Slave Matrix is garbage.

The underlying idea is fine, but everything about the game is tedious trash. It includes little features like:

>contrived debt mechanic

just as boring this time as it was the last 100 times.

>piss fetish out of nowhere

fuck the nips. fuck them.

>orgasms destroy stamina

you're punished for fucking unless you're an edging fetishist. nice design, ace.

>wanking is better for building your own arousal than sex

fucking retarded bullshit.

yes you can raise arousal higher with sex if you like carpal tunnel, but it's still fucking stupid

>horribly limited interactivity

you can only fuck or torture your slaves and only in one position.

>everything is grinding

the trap of slave trainers everywhere. click nipples a million times or whatever to max X stat.

use AHK to automate this so your hand doesn't go numb.

<congratulations you hit the frog 134512352345234234234523523452 times.

The only thing the game has going for it is the sheer complexity of the genetic system and how it expresses as physical attributes in the offspring.

that's pretty cool.

if only there was a real game wrapped around it instead of something that barely qualifies as an alpha level demo.

It seems you want to make a text-game like the older interactive fiction games. Inform 7 would mostly fit perfectly with what you want, given that it is pretty much updated Infocom, with the exception of:

> nice UI

That's pretty much unfeasible with Inform without some heavy use of ==MAGIC== . To achieve that you'd have to use the ancient scrolls to interact with the Virtual Machine on a lower level, otherwise you get bad results and even worse performance. Most of the low-level stuff interacting more directly with the VM is undocumented, so you're SOL if you're trying to get it to work and you're not involved with the development of the interpreters. The people working with the interpreters are nice and would love to help you, though.

Tbh, it seems like you want to add a ton of systems, that means you will have to do a ton of coding regardless of what you end up choosing, so you might as well just pick whatever has the most of the stuff you want ready to go. My suggestion: bring down requirements and make a simpler game to start with. Also choose what you want to focus on: story or game? If game, Inform > Twine, otherwise Twine > Inform. Also keep in mind that Inform is essentially the ancient language of the gods, twine is the new kid on the block… that means you might find more diverse help for Twine than Inform. Twine also runs without interpreters, which is a big plus.

>>335268

While you can make anything in GameMaker, this would be akin to reinventing the wheel. You'd have to teach it to print text, if you want it to parse commands you'd have to teach it that AND you'd have to teach it to receive those commands as well, you'd have to teach it buttons, etc… it would be an incredibly large amount of work.

So, if you really want to go with infocom-style I'd strongly recommend Inform, because it's literally the maintained infocom style. It should also have a ton of plugins you can add that do stuff for you. Otherwise go with Twine, but it's going to be hell to make the UI look decent while also making the game go at a nice pacing, twine is just not meant for real games.

If you're going to make it all from the ground up I'd suggest just going with clean HTML5/Javascript. That gives you access to everything HTML and so you don't have to worry that much about presentation. It also works on every platform without any extra work. This would require you actually know how to code, however.

You can sell the elves on the slave market for quick cash, train them as pleasure slaves for some more income, or train them into combat units to support you in battle.

Just have the basics down so far.

I'm sure this is asked here sometimes but I couldn't find much and my Ctrl+F searches didn't help much. Are there any good tutorials for making a game similar to Akabur's games or Four Elements Trainer in Ren'py? Most of the tutorials I find are just for straight visual novels that move in a linear pattern and I want mine to be more "open world" like those ones.

Also I know technically you aren't allowed to use Honey Select for the visuals in a game but some successful projects have been doing it without anything bad happening and until I would make enough money to pay someone to make assets for me this is my best bet. However I really like the art style of Illusion's Koikatu better than Honey Select, are there any downsides to using that instead? It seems to have all of the same options for posing and whatnot. Also to follow up on this is it in poor taste to use mods for these games when designing a character because I've only ever used repacks and I barely know what's a mod and what isn't at this point and have no real way of crediting the mod authors.

They are just straight visual novels, they just happen to have a few variables that store some shit.

Also just read the EULA for these games. Tbh you can probably do whatever you want and no one will sue you over it, I don't see any moral issues around using a poser to make poses, but unless the EULA specifies you can do this, there are going to be legal issues. Now, it's a shitty porn game from overseas, they won't bother suing a random nobody over usage, so do whatever you want.

Not sure if I should bother making a game since my art is shit. On the other hand there are people raking in cash with what I would consider to be shitty to average art or just text and never ever updates. Is there any point making a game if I cant art?

Well it depends, post something so we can tell. If it has decent art then generally even very little content is accepted, if art is minimal then you need something that catches the interest of people like a specific fetish, if you don't have either then yeah wait.

>How much of our game do you think we should have done before releasing a demo?

What's the genre?

Some games are more suitable than others for demos. A visual novel demo is arguably a waste of time - you're asking players to learn backstory and characters and become emotionally invested in them, but then you abruptly terminate the experience without a satisfying resolution. When you release the actual game, players will need to spend time replaying the original chapter(s) in order to access the new material, which is frustrating. If players are expected to repeat this process monthly, then you might alienate your early adopters. JRPGs often suffer similar problems, with dull content (character intros, backstory, fetch quests, exposition) being front-loaded in the early minutes. Action games can drop players into a mid-game mission for immediate excitement - but only if the game's controls and mechanics are simple enough to obviate a tutorial.

Your demo needs to engage players in some way. Maybe you've got great artwork which can be sprinkled throughout a few minutes of boring gameplay. Perhaps you've created interesting mechanics (movement system, ability combos, puzzle designs, etc) which can impress players even if they completely ignore your world and characters. You might have written an original and amazing story - but that doesn't mean shit unless you can deliver it in an interesting way (it you're asking me to read a multi-page text dump before I've seen any gameplay, then you fail as a game designer).

> i'm not sure if anyone would bother playing it this early on.

What do *you* actually want from the demo?

* interest check. You want to know how many players would potentially play and/or buy your game (in its *current* unfinished state). This feedback will help you to gauge how much more work is needed before the game is truly enjoyable for players.

* consumer-level feedback. You're committed to the core design of your game and its story, but you're willing to make minor adjustments (e.g. difficulty tuning, item drop rates, breast sizes) based on feedback.

* designer-level feedback. You're willing to make fundamental changes to your game (e.g. remove the combat system, add puzzle dungeons, rewrite the plot into a revenge story, swap the MC's gender) based on feedback.

* recruitment. The demo is intended to show off your talents, but the game cannot reach its final intended state without assistance. The demo will entice talented people to contact you and join your team.

* hype. You've already finalized the game design and your team is full. You just need time to complete the game. You're hoping to build/sustain enthusiasm by releasing incremental demos. Interested players will be invited to join your Discord, subscribe to your Twitter, and spread word-of-mouth.

* funding. You plan to release a few early demos, but you'll eventually limit access to crowdfunding donors only (in order to offset dev costs, commission custom artwork and music, pay library license fees, etc).

* content. Your game includes significant potential for user-generated content (e.g. level design, character customization, AI scripting, modding). You need users to tinker with these systems in order to test their limits, refine them, and verify that the custom content can be shared and remixed in the intended ways (e.g. MacOS-derived content can be imported onto an Android device).

Note: if you answer "all of these above" then you're dodging the question. The answer here should guide your demo-release strategy. If you want hype, then hold back until you have a polished demo available (and a scheduled release date). If you want designer-level feedback, then you should release a barely-working early demo with stolen/placeholder assets.

Thank you for this! I admit there are a few boring scenes that i'll need to fix from text dumps so I probably will wait on releasing it. A reason why I wasn't so sure was because I wanted to create the scenes first and then work on art but I might just draw some sketches and put them as placeholders during the event.

What kinds of porn games are there, and what niches exist to be served? What scratches to be itched?

I’m thinking in terms of mechanics rather than fetishes, though no doubt they can be closely correlated – slave trainer games, for instance, are distinct in both regards.

I have a game that I started making just for kicks (I love modding, so I have an itch for making stuff). It is a RPG maker VX ACE game. I made bretty gud progress, intro and a big chunk of chapter 1 are mostly done, and then I stopped.

I'm now thinking of continuing and perhaps going patreon or something. Why?

Well, the company I work at is having a bad time, so I'm currently at half working hours and reduced pay, so not good. I have the time, faggots are making a killing being incompetent, lazy cunts.

Yeah, I know. PRG Maker a shit, but it works for me.

And Patreon also shit. I hate it when the developers make everything exclusive and have big donation options. I was thinking along the lines of patrons getting versions 1 week earlier and minimal patronage (1-5$)

Anyway, I wanted to ask - should I been bother? Is there a better platform than Patreon? How do I avoid getting nuked from it? (atm games has lesbian/yuri, futa and rape)

I have a vague idea of a text-based game in which a heroine has to sneak around town naked, or bottomless or etc for some reason.

I have a sense that I want this to be a bit like the era games. That is, characters are a bundle of unchangeable and changeable traits, stats, skills etc that combine into a unique (or unique-feeling) entity who reacts differently to different situations. While some have special dialogue or unique traits, virtually all of them are subject to the player’s whims.

(I guess another way to describe this system would be “like CKII”.)

The issue is that I don’t really know how I’d go about brainstorming the actual meat and potatoes of the game design, and I don’t have a clear idea of how gameplay would function (or rather, I don’t know where I ought to start). I don’t even know if you’d play as the unfortunate lady, or as some kind of malevolent entity haunting her, or as some kind of malevolent entity haunting a specific part of town in which you’d toy with the lives of pedestrians walking through.

I need to have a clearer idea of where this concept will go before I end up stuffing all my conflicting fetishes into it and turning it into a bloated mess. Unfortunately I don’t know many resources out there for porn game design, which of course is why I ask here.

(Though, while typing this all out I’ve brainstormed quite a bit, like the idea of haunting a specific part of town instead of someone specific. So maybe I just need to blog about it some more.)

Patreon is most likely your best bet. I have personally searched for other platforms but all that are somewhat similar don't allow sexual content at all.

And even on Patreon there will most likely nuke you if they find out that you have one of these in your game: "bestiality, incest, sexual depiction of minors, and suggestive sexual violence".>>341078

Right, for a game like that art is the main draw, writing just doesn't have to be terrible. Are you sure you want 3 characters for that type of game? You need to draw everything three times so the only point of that would be if each character had her own storyline (doesn't have to be too different) since the scenes have to be unique anyway since that is what takes up the most time. However if you want to constantly release updates people wont play with all 3 every patch, so it doesn't work well with that model. It could work if you have one main character picked but you can still access the scenes from the others as they become followers or you take control of them for a period of the game.

I think that the best bet is not to advertise the "a rape" feature directly on Patreon.

There is a game on Patreon called "Harem Hotel" and it got temporarily banned because one of the characters looked too young. I only read that it was because of her outfit so I guess it was probably a school uniform…

I also guess that the author was stupid enough to share a screenshot of her directly on Patreon. I doubt that Patreon employees play those games.

Since I think what non-con might mean could differ between them, plus even on other ones I could add more variety to certain ages if it is something about ages (ie certain responses might only make sense for older or younger girls depending on how knowledgeable they are about stuff). This wouldn't really impact which scenes get done, but more how detailed they are when it comes to dialogue I guess, since I can't always use the same dialogue for 4 as I could with 13.

The Studio manual has a line which specifically states that you're not allowed to use secondary content like videos or screenshots from the game. However, like >>340474 said, plenty of people have been doing this in the past and the chances of getting caught are pretty slim because they're on the other side of the world. It would be worse if you exported the models and used those.

A warning though: this might all change since everybody's beloved company Fakku has the western publishing rights to Illusion games now, so they might actually try to milk the Honey Select patreon scammers dry.

Mod creators are usually anonymous and I wouldn't recommend crediting a repack, since you're basically admitting piracy then.

On topic: I researched this because I've been planning a free management game in Godot for a while now with KK screenshots. I've spent some time fucking around with all the relevant features in the engine and in KK studio and am now probably ready to start prototyping.

jesus, you're kind of a bitch.

But to answer your question, you may wanna do a character model,clothing sprites for said model and a data base.

then depending on your engine you do something like this

CREATE EVENT

Code:

hair = 0;

shirt = 0;

pants = 0;

shoes = 0;

DRAW EVENT

Code:

draw_self();

draw_sprite(SPR_Hair,hair,x,y-10);

draw_sprite(SPR_Shirt,shirt,x,y);

draw_sprite(SPR_Pants,pants,x,y+5);

draw_sprite(SPR_Shoes,shoes,x,y+10);

Then have buttons to add the variables by 1, and the image will automatically change.

Also, make the sprites white, if you want to change the colours.

you can also take a look at how the simbro guy did it.

that's what SVG is. so i was trying to figure out how to work with it beyond initially drawing the SVG image. I was wondering if there are any tools that make it easier to work with or maybe paperdoll tools that abstract away the SVG format entirely.

You talking about the pixel art, the renders, or the vector art? Each one will obviously benefit from different applications.

I think most Pixel Art applications are free. Vector art might be done with Inkscape, but I'm not entirely sure of that. I think there's a way of using customizable vectors in HTML5, as well, Queen of the Seas does that, which allows for a lot of variety with less assets.

I randomly generate height and a body size then pass that through a bmi formula to get the weight, with players selecting a body size in character creation and using the same formula to generate their weight. If you wanna steal the formula, here you go.

# BMI FORMULA FOR REFERENCE 703*(weight/(self.height*height))

@property

def weight(self):

bmi = int((self.body_size*2.5)+17)

I've seen plenty of OG indie games, fangames and mods, with very solid and original gameplay mechanics but with barebones programmer art, have random artists and graphicians draw for them sprites or models, free of charge.This only applies to normal games though.

H-games require the main developer to be an artist first rather than a coder, and if that isn't an option, then you better have good connections, a good friend who is good with the pencil or wads of dosh.

Unless you're doing textgame, then nobody gives a shit about your game because the market is saturated, and even good writing is often overlooked in exchange for fetishes and pandering to demographics.

The idea that indie devs need to be artists first and programmers second, and text games are a dead saturated market is straight from a pre-minecraft world. Doesn't mean it's not true though.

If you want to make your game as a fun side project, go nuts. Write whatever you want. Make a text game. Have programmer art. But if you want to make a living in the modern H-Game industry, you need two out of three qualities for your game: Good Art, Good Smut, or Good Gameplay. And if you don't cater to a target demographic with fat wads of cash literally falling out of their pockets, you'll never make a living. Why do you think all the western games that make fucktons of money are all full of "degenerate" fetishes by this board's standards? Those are the fetishes that make money, and they're trying to make a living.

>indie devs

But all i said is that H-game devs have to be artists first due to the nature of the games. Regular indie devs shouldn't even have to worry about that as long as the core gameplay is solid, and it better be fucking solid because fuck playing shitty games.

To put it simple; I never alluded that "good art = good game" as this has never been the case, but rather that "good art = good h-game".

>but all those popular sprite games that rely on gameplay

The art is usually very good for 16-32bit sprite graphic aesthetics and the animations are top notch, which takes a damn good artistic foundation to pull off due to it being sprites. They would be successful even without the gameplay as sprite porn galleries.

Then again, a game of any kind that looks wonderful but plays like shit and runs like shit is bad all around. Gotta program it decently to make an h-game work. Coding is significantly faster (not neccesairly easier) to learn than drawing from scratch, hence the "artist first".

This is a great question. I think there's no clear answer, but there's a hint:

You can't create procedural generation and back-fill it in with custom content. That works great for mediocre work, but it makes the custom content seem lack-luster. You'll always be playing catch-up.

Instead, you need to make intensive procedural generation that has enough variance to all the player to create emergent gameplay that's convincing. It won't be perfect, but it's the way forward, I think.

Never give money to someone that either A) does not have a finished design document, or B) does not have a history of finishing projects. The document is the big one. It should include a complete list of features, the gameplay explained and a guess as to the amount of content there will be. The biggest crime many of these games is that they start accepting money through ebegging, but then start going back and redoing parts of the game instead of pushing forward and completing it. I'd give a dev a once do over, a second draft, but beyond that you know that faggot is just milking with what he has rather than taking risks to deliver the final product.

Pay for it when it's done I say. I don't pay for bread while it's still dough, I don't pay for a table while it's still raw wood.

Start small, then invest the money made into larger and larger projects with time. ONLY once you've got your own traction should you start something like a Jewtreon; at which point offer no rewards whatsoever and just keep it exclusively as a personal tip jar.

I for one can attest that I prefer devs that start off on short-but-complete 30 minute RenPy's than the ones that start on the next Big Brother/DmD/MotH with a brand new engine, new models and some shitty gimmick that never gets used; only for it to all fall through before you even get a virtual BJ. Hell, some of the best ones I've ever played are just short, polished 30 min RenPys with a split ending over fully branching paths.

There's nothing wrong with just treating this industry like every other one, and selling finished product.

Release a complete base game with a finished gameplay loop that can stand on its own. Then a few times a year release an expansion that adds new content. Could be a character pack with new characters, a cosmetic pack with new wearables, a fetish pack that adds X fetish content, or whatever. That way people can clearly see what they're getting and donate/pay accordingly.

The end result would be the sort of expansive game that many patreon games claim to be making, only delivered in a fair way where people only pay when you actually do something.

Fenoxo has a model where backers pay for access to builds before anyone else, I consider it a good model since it isn't something like an expansion pack which blocks too much content behind a paywall most people are going to bypass lest you put copy protrection on your hgame.

I have been working in a simple erotic hg with some rpg elements based in YuGiOh GX.

Made using PowerPoint and some models that I found and nude-edited.

At the moment features some perfectly looped sexual anims and dialogs.

The story takes place after the end of the anime. It's some kind of Azuka (Alexis Rhodes) sex/date sim with some non-sexual events like taking advanced classes, giving lessons to cute females students and having some "duels" (Puzzles like choosing the correct move),

I could upload it if someone wants (Currently it's not translated to english but I could do it easly).

Girls to fuck:

Asuka (5 poses)

Momoe (1 pose)

To do:

Add Junko, Rei and miss Midori Hibiki

Give me your feedback and ideas.

I'm making a text-based game. I mainly do it to improve my writing skills, but at the same time I want as many people as possible to at least try it. Many people wouldn't even look at a text-based game, much less one without any visuals, so I was wondering if I should, as much as I would hate that, add real porn pics to the mix.

In other words can pure writing stand on its own as a porn game, or should I add porn pics into it?

I'd say it depends. I know there are some fanfics in the day that got my rocks off. Now tho, I have poor eyesight and reading too much can strain my eyes, so that's the main reason why I stay away from text-based games sadly…

What I think would be great, tho is more work, is to have options that the player can turn images on or off, that way it can maybe appeal to more people. Some can enjoy the porn pics, but also some can enjoy just the words and letting their imagination help make it sexier for them. What you decide to do is up to you, this is just my 2 cents.

In the gif she doesn't blinks, but in the gameplay she does it. It's just that in the actual game there's another gif superposed.

Forgot to say I will upload a demo in 2-3 days and will never ask for money, so "if I do" it's another guy posing as me. All I want is your feedback, because this is just a hobby.

Also i'm gonna add a lore-friendly galery-mode/quick mode with more YGO girls (Akiza, Kotori and Cathy) and some female duel monsters (Dark Magician Girl and Cyber Blader)

The sex mode consists in the girl fucking a completly invisible character.

#371195 here.

Think the same.

The problem is the lack of details in the skin of the model. It's inherent to the artistic style of Kazuki Takahashi. He makes solid colored skins.

Beyond this,

the game consists in roam around the Duel Academy just like the Tag Force games and fuck, talk, and solve puzzles.

There's a map with locations and some buttons.

Example screen:

In the big screen you can see the graphics.

Click the PDA to contact girls directly (Some kind of quick gallery mode)

Click the duel disk to do some duel-related games or fuck Dark Magician Girl and Cyber-Blader

Since it's just a PowerPoint screen with pre rendered graphics so I don't have to code a shit I can add scenes very quickly..

As you may remember, the school has a lab. I thought in use this as a lore friendly excuse to add events non related to the GX arc.

[spoiler]I have in my mind days ago the idea of adding a bonus scene where you fuck Kotori (With her consent) in front of Yuma, who is there, watching the scene, looking sad and angry (cuck) xd

With some text lines giving sense to the situation.[/spoiler]

What do you think?

I can only tell you what I told the other guy, it's way too early to give any feedback. I would love to because feedback also helped me greatly.

I can say things like abilities deal too little damage but you obviously know this just haven't go into balancing. I could say you need tooltips for abilities and enemies to show their type. You need icons a turn order, better visual for UI. You either already know all of this or you will do a different solution but nothing I say matters. Keep working on the game it takes a fuckton of time.

I've started making a VR loli game. You'll be able to pick outfits and environments for her, and you can easily mod in more. And obviously you'll be able to fuck her.

However, I'd like to have a little more "game" than that. But I can't think of very many ideas. Anyone have suggestions for what kind of gameplay to make?

Tooltips for attacks would probably be beneficial. The damage attacks only do 5 HP damage cause they're suppose to be base attacks of their "element", but the lewd attacks are suppose to be used semi strategically to do the most lewd damage possible. Idk about a turn order display, cause right now the turn order will always be the same. If I make turn order randomized in the future, then yeah I'll probably add a display UI for that.

Yeah, it will take a fuckton of time.

I see you made a duel system and recreated Domino City using original assets. That's cool.

The YGO universe has lots of pretty girls and interesting locations to explore.

It's great to find someone who also is making a YGO hg. Yours is set in Domino City and mine in Duel Academy.

We can share ideas and improve both projects.

Did you tried my hg? It's more an amateur visual novel than a proper game. I'll post the first update soon with more 3D cutscenes and lots of dialogs. That was just a concept.

You can allways talk to me about the YGO universe, YGO girls, lore, design, etc..

Been working on a chapter based vn/rpg. Basic fantasy world stuff, female protagonist, nothing super original, I just want it to be good.

I've found it a bit difficult to figure out how to work on it. Ended up re-working sections a lot so it's tricky to progress with stuff because I keep changing it. Also go back and forth between trying to do creative things with the character choices vs just keeping it simple and straightforward. Does anyone have any experience making stuff like this and how to go about it? I'm not entirely sure what kind of process would be efficient as well as make something creative and good. I'm more of an art and ideas person so getting ahold the story, structure and that kind of stuff doesn't come as easily. Do you guys create like a super basic version with robotic dialogue just to make the overall game work first, or do you sort of write it like a book and then build the game stuff around it? I've been doing a bit of both, some basic sections, others more in-depth and it has become something of a mess because of that.

Any advice would be great.

I think for Visual Novels the visual aspect is important. What sets it apart from a novel is you can use the visuals to help guide the player rather than having to describe everything. Backgrounds, locations and character art. Multiple CGs for each character to give them "motion" would also help I guess.

>Character choices

To keep down complexity so that you can actually finish it, focus on a main route. You can add choices for flavor scenes which are tangentially related, but it would be best to have a completed route first. If you want to have 2 endings, plan them out first and plan out which choice (or combination of choices) will lead to them.

Yeah, I hear you. A large part of what I want to do is to present a world that is very enjoyable. Like, something that just invites creativity so I've spent a lot of time trying to make everything feel like it's worth exploring. While it's a nsfw game, I kind of want that to interact with story, characters and the world in a way that enhances the experience. Not that I'm creating middle earth or anything, just trying to make things as fun and sexy as I can.

>>372752

I'm looking into those kinds of after effects animations to 2d images. It would definitely bring up the quality in a significant way but I think that will have to wait until later. I'm trying to keep the narration down to just essentials, letting character dialogue carry most of what is happening. I think once I've gotten the basic script worked out, I'll see about getting help to improve it.

The strategy I'm taking with character choices is to try and merge it back into the main line as much as I can. So like, you make a choice, and rather than drastically altering the story, it mostly just changes some things like dialogue in the storyline or dialogue during h-scenes. This way I can keep everything on the main line so it doesn't get all scattered.

gf showed me draw.io that I've now started to use to make a flow chart for the game. I feel like it really really made a big difference in how I work on the game. Things are much more structured thanks to it ^^ Will try and complete the main game from the general to specific so I don't get too bogged down in details or complex stuff before the big thing is functioning.

Oh and here's another bit of placeholder art

how have you planned for this before? In any case, take a look at walkthroughs for other VNs. The flowchart to play through the game is more the less same as the flowchart to design the game, just less details and conditionals.

I was just using a word doc for that stuff, outlining the story and choices. The draw.io stuff made the overall design of things easier.

Basic flowchart for prologue/chapter0 done. Putting together places and characters with placeholder art/sketches, connecting them in-game to get a feel for things. Trying to just get a skeleton in place that I can play through before going back to fatten things up. Not sure if this is optimal or if I should focus more on fleshing out the writing first so there are no questions about what exactly happens. If I eventually do the whole patreon thing, having a very good pipeline for making stuff would be very important.

I think I will find someone to pull in later to help me with dialogue to get more personality into things. I can write okay dialogue but I'm not too confident in it and I think having someone help me would be good. I was hoping having something 80% finished (including decent looking art) would make it easier to encourage someone to help out.

Another placeholder pic I've made for it. (in case anyone cares to see these)

>Do you guys create like a super basic version with robotic dialogue just to make the overall game work first, or do you sort of write it like a book and then build the game stuff around it? I've been doing a bit of both, some basic sections, others more in-depth and it has become something of a mess because of that.

>Any advice would be great.

As with all things creative there's always many ways to go about it, you have to find what you feel most comfortable with. But it always help planning your work, start with an general outline and the setting. After that you can quickly cobble together a critical path with placeholder text and art, which will help you to see if everything makes sense and if the thing will work out in practice. If it does you can then flesh it out with more paths and stuff, put proper art and text in it and then you have a more or less finished game which you can then polish.

This is a good way of doing things, since you won't invest a lot of time into something that will either need to be changed later or will make a mess of things if it doesn't fit with the rest. If you plan on going the patreon route then you will probably want a forever game that you can keep adding things to though. In that case you will just need some basic mechanics which can faciliate new content, like how Tales of Androgynity and Corruption of Champions. They always turn into messes and are never properly finished, but they do make money since you can put in whatever dweebs with money to spend want.

If you intend on making a finished game on the other hand it really pays off nailing the basic mechanics and overall structure early on.

I will now give you some general advice on writing fantasy. Even if you're developing a H-game you still probably want to attach the lewd stuff to some sort of story framework and even very generic ones gives really juicy context to the lewds.

If you want a crash course on writing compelling fiction or just improving your writing then I recommend you to check out the following book, it's not very long and it will give you everything you need to know:

https://www42.zippyshare.com/v/RraUBzTc/file.html

For a great hackfraud guide to writing fantasy, faking worldbuilding and an easy structure to follow, then you should check out Moorcock's guide to writing a fantasy pulp story quickly:

https://pastebin.com/hQtxWYBm

Lester Dent Forumula:

https://pastebin.com/2DhNTAQu

(Not all of this is applicable to game writing, but it features some good avice.)

Basically you want a somewhat simple plot that will motivate the protagonist and keep the player interested. Instead of action you simply write in lewd content. A lot of fantasy H-RPGs are about stopping some ancient evil and such, but you don't need to go down that route. Simply give the player a proper objective and then put a bunch of obstacles in the way. In an old sword and sorcery pulp story there might be a bridge on the way to the destination that is occupied by a hostile group of people or monsters. It could be resolved by sneaking through, keeping up tension by implying that the hero might be caught, or fought through, the hero barely winning against overwhelming odds. In a H-game you'd just add lewd elements. Maybe the hero gets buggered if caught when sneaking, maybe she uses her charm to seduce a guard and so on.

You want an outline already written so you know where you are going with it. Depending on how reactive you want the game to be you will have to plan for that too. But however much difference choices will make you want to tie them back into the critical path as early as you can. Going too far into pure flavour text can be underwhelming for players since they will likely feel like they have very little agency over the story and character. But you can't write a completely new game for each choice they make, so try to keep it as contained as possible. Whatever you do, don't even think about adding things that will increase the scope and have a cascading effect on all other content you've already made.

Once you have an outline, know what sort of setting it is and what function the character is supposed to serve and their relationship to the player then writing dialogue isn't that hard. What I'd worry about is writing the sex scenes, which are much harder to get right.

It sounds like you need more experience so you can build better code that takes less time to write and maintain.

So I assume something simple. You should already have a function that calls clock since I would think it's used everywhere in the game. So it should be 1 line to check the time, moving function is another thing that you will use everywhere but again it should be relatively simple and you build your rooms already thinking about how to make them functional.

That pic you posted isn't programming. People don't make money because of their coding skills but because they made a game others enjoy.

I'm feeling a need for a type of game that I'm not finding or perhaps dont know where or how to look for it. Because of that, I want to brainstorm for maybe making a game like what I wanna find instead.

I want it to be kind of an idle game that's fun to watch. I'm thinking that you start out with a character with some random traits. You can tell this character what adventures or quests to go on, but after that, it's up to them. Their decisions are determined by their traits and RNG, which can also lead to hopefully some hilarious outcomes and dumb decisions. Other than that, I dont have much of an idea of where to start or the mechanics that said "adventures" would use.

>>375701

Yeah, I can see that working, but the amount of resources it'd require would be immense. Every passage would need to be written, RNG taken into account, a lot of text, and that's not even taking into consideration any art that might come along.

You can probably make it work through being very careful with the scope, but then the game might end up being pretty short, too. The good thing is it wouldn't be very hard to code at all. I even feel dirty saying this, but SugarCube would probably fit this idea like a glove. It's essentially a CYOA with some RNG/underlying systems in the mix. SugarCube works well with that.

There is an hRPG about a dungeon master that has to prepare traps and challenges to a knightess coming in that might give you some ideas of how to go about things, though this game is considerably more hand-on than what you seem to be thinking about. In that game, you have a limited amount of slots and you can place things there. You can't make it too hard or the knightess gives up and leaves, you can't make it too easy or she gets bored and leaves, you need to have her find cool stuff, but not too often, etc. Essentially, after you place the traps, the result is pretty much predetermined - she'll walk on the spikes and get hurt and sad, but then she finds a healing potion and gets happy, then she gets raped by a goblin and feels sad, but then there's a bathhouse where she can relax, and then the game just "plays itself" while you look.

Your game would probably be a lot simpler. The main gameplay loop would be something like

> Choose activity (quest/whatever)

> Watch things unfold

> Do it all over again

The thing is every outcome will need to be hand crafted. It's a bit easier if it's text, it's considerably harder if it's not. I think it might look like something easy to do on the surface, but I also think it'd take considerably more work than having an underlying system that's fun on its own, because then it's easy to have generic fluff to make the game appear bigger and you get to focus on the special events that demand attention, all the while you have an actual gameplay loop to keep the player entertained. This is why hRPGs tend to work so well. Default RPG gameplay is not amazing, but it's there and it works.

Thanks for all that, duder. I've really taken the advice on board.

So I started putting together a demo just getting that "critical path" through story using placeholder art and text. Got a feel for the game and it wasn't what I wanted. Felt way too serious and heavy, so I think I have to go back and re-work the foundation a fair bit to make it more fun. I could mess with the art and writing but I think the issue is more foundational. Guess it's better to find out I didn't like the feel of it now rather than later…

(pics are just some of the placeholder art I made)

>Guess it's better to find out I didn't like the feel of it now rather than later…

Yeah, this is something developers have to be careful about before investing time and effort into something, and one of the reasons there are so many abandoned indie and amateur projects that might have had great ideas initially but were worked on until they found some huge flaw with the foundation and just gave up since it would take so much effort to get it to something good. That's why professional devs do a lot of prototyping and drafts before going all in on a project.

Not sure if it is helpful or not, but when it comes to lewd games it seems like many of the best ones I've played have started out with ideas of scenes and fetishes and then simply written the story and plot around them, since they are the point of the game. Like Tower of Trample has this very silly throwaway plot to justify the femdom and structure of the game. The Taimanin games probably started out with fetish scenes such as gangbangs and such and then the plot was written to make that even more attractive with buildup and stuff. Like how in the first game Asagi bullies an orc only for him to later violate her when she was captured and modifed. It's not deep stuff or anything, but keeping a focus on what's central and keeping it cohesive is the way to go, at least from my observations. I mean, there's nothing wrong with a good story with lewd scenes attatched, but you have to pick something to put first.

Really nice art btw, looks like something I'd love to play.

Yeah, I think the project lacked focus in its design. Instead of having a few bold design/art/story choices to orient the whole thing around, I tried to make something that was too broad in theme. The idea was to tell different stories in their own chapters and connect it all by being the same game/vn, but to make that work, it lead to making the core of the game much more conservative/generic. Each "chapter" would have been better as its own game so that the design choices could go all out on the theme. It's like making a painting and wanting to include every color, sure you can do it but it won't hit any mood well or harmonize unless you desaturate the colors down. I'm sure very skilled people can pull it off, but it's easier to both write and do art if you're working with a few very bold choices rather than many different ones.

So with all that said, I think I'll put this project on the shelf for now. I have another idea I want to try and turn into a VN/game. I was reflecting on why I didn't like the other project and I started writing out an idea for a new game that was much tighter in focus and the more I've worked on it, the better it's starting to look. I won't go into detail but the general idea is to make a nsfw horror VN. Taking a few lovecraft tropes but hopefully injecting new ideas to get it to feel fresh and fun. I'll post more when I have more worked out. Until then, I've attached some rough "concept art" I've made for it.

It sounds like it could have been an anthology thing, sort of like a short story collection but a lewd VN, like the Lilith IZM releases. They are very short though and as you said it's hard to flesh them out properly if you are trying to do many different things, which would warrant different mechanics, systems or styles. In each IZM collection you'd get like four very short games and they'd be each centered around more or less a single lewd scene, with each collection having a general theme. Not nearly as good as the full feature releases, and they limit themselves to branching choices as far as gameplay goes, short three act story structures. Setting up the sex scene, doing the sex scene (most fleshed out part) and then having a short epilogue.

>I won't go into detail but the general idea is to make a nsfw horror VN. Taking a few lovecraft tropes but hopefully injecting new ideas to get it to feel fresh and fun.

Oh my, that sounds great. I don't know how big of an audience that sort of thing has but I'm sweating bullets already. If you are planning to sell your game, which you should given how good even your rough concept art is, then that also seems like a niche that would support you, the /xeno/ crowd and other weirdos that are into that kind of thing. Because quality lewd games doing horror and Lovecraft are extremely rare.

If you want a quick lesson in what not to do then you should check out the Lovecraftian VNs by Nikraria, I love the art but the writing and design of these games are terrible. I mean, you have obvious things like lewd scenes being in bad endings and dead ends, not building them up properly and so on. Might be worth checking out just to get a feel for what works there and not.
