    Fuwanovel: A "safe space" where VN casualfags gather to circlejerk about otome games and cheap Western knockoffs, decry rational criticism and alternative viewpoints, and "translate" native Japanese-language works using text hookers, Google Translate, and the honed language skills they picked up from reading Heisig's Remembering the Kanji.

    Along the Edge

    Along the Edge is a visual novel set in the European countryside, where your choices impact the main character's personality and appearance. Story: Daphné is at a dead-end. She's unsatisfied by her personal and professional life. So, when she inherits an old family house in a remote part of the country, she jumps at the opportunity to start anew. Does she decide to embrace her legacy or does she hang on to her old way of life? Along the Edge is developed by a small team located at Bordeaux (France). It's our second narrative project, and our first one for desktop computers. Here's a link to our website: http://alongtheedge-game.com/ Trailer: Progress: Finished.

    Well, there's not much to say this time. Having finished translating and editing everything that our first patch will cover, we're now mainly focused on TLCing and QCing. The prologue should, according to my rough count, be 2 hours long or so. Okay, now I'm out of things to say, so here are the numbers from this week! Progress TL: From 11% to 12% - (5014/40394) Proofread Prologue Scripts: (12/20)

    I think cheating is alright, even in multiplayer games. "Whaaaaat?" says the distressed fellow who spent real money on Gunbound before finding out Gunbound isn't a pay2win MMO but a hack2win MMO. Alright, I admit it - that was readbait just now. But I think hacking sometimes gives us something in games we usually don't have, which is the audience actually making the game more than the devs, directly (through hacking in itself) or indirectly (through the collective behaviour changing due to the game being broken). Let me tell you the story of Endless Online, EO for shorts. EO is, or probably was, because that's what happens with these kinds of games, an MMORPG. It looked like shit, played like shit and was all around not a very good MMORPG to play. However, it did have the basics down - most important of all, infinite money. You know, infinitely respawnable monsters dropped money or items that can be sold to NPCs, who have infinite money. To keep the sense that even if you're a newcomer you can still work your way up through your own efforts instead of relying on the community to manage its own economy. Because as we see from the real world, that always goes wrong. So one day someone hacked the game and let everyone multiply their money to their heart's content. Everyone who was online at the time could make as much money as they wanted, so billions upon billions of gold coins were generated that day. The very next day, the gamemasters banned the hack and everyone using it, but, for some reason, they didn't delete the counterfeit money. So EO woke up with an overnight inflation of about 9,999,900%, (the best bow costed 220k last day before the hack and 220kk after the hack), making Zimbabwe look like safe investment. If the people hadn't been banned and the only remaining money wasn't what people left on the streets, there's no telling what would have happened to the prices. So here's the funny thing: because there was so much money in the server, the wealth stopped being infinite. There was no longer any point in doing quests that yielded 10k, otherwise a large sum, or killing monsters that dropped ~50 gold each. So the economy became community-based, which drove people to actually interact and stay much more time in the city than in the killing grounds, since being the referee in a game or being the middleman in an account sale was way more economically viable than killing bosses. Turns out the hack made the game more human, the opposite of what happened, say, in Tibia, in which almost every new item has an NPC that buys or sells it and prices were standardized due to this (and so peopledon't really need to interact; the whole game can be played with the NPCs alone), so cities that once were crowded as fuck even though only ~1000 people were online per server in peak hours in a huge (and I mean HUGE) map are now empty.

    What are you playing?

    I finished No, Thank You!!! a bit ago. It was my first BL title, and I liked it enough. The art is very nice, and it's one of those stories that you can tell has been very well planned out in advance, which always makes me happy. There's a lot of replay value, and the addition of new text after finishing portions of the game helps with that, but it does make it very annoying to get 100%. I might move on to Ozmafia, but I'm going to want to read Grisaia no Meikyuu when it comes out as well. Should I wait on Ozmafia and get Grisaia as soon as it comes out, or start Ozmafia now? And is there a recommended route order for Ozmafia?

    What are you playing?

    Since they're all I've been reading lately, I'll take a moment to say good things about the last project I edited for and the one I'm currently editing: To Heart 2 is pretty entertaining. It's a straightforward moege with a huge cast of heroines, and to some extent represents the solidification of many of the tropes you see today. One interesting thing about this is that there are some tropes there that didn't end up being popular enough to become super common, but which might be to your taste. And on that note, I'd like to recommend: Tama-nee is the older sister figure you secretly wish you had in your life, but wouldn't admit to it even here. She was my favorite character I encountered in the game, even though her route didn't live up to her character. Also, her H-scene at the end of the route is intense And then there's the twins. They've got the opposite thing going on from Tama-nee - none of the characters on this route are as amazing as she, but the route is way, way better than I anticipated going in. The drama is surprisingly real. I was a little bit leery when I picked it up. I mean... twins? Sounds like an obvious play for whipping up teenage males into a frenzy without putting out too much effort. And, yeah, it is that. But it's also filled with relatable conflict and relationship difficulties that feel less like your typical moege artificial obstacles and more like understandable human problems. And then at the end: So yeah, play the twins' route, too. Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't heartily encourage you to play through all the bad ending scenes for the twins (one wrong choice and you'll land there, anyway). That's not just me wanting someone to read the stuff I edited - it's often legitimately hilarious, and one scene is crushingly heartbreaking. I'd find it a tragedy if nobody else ever played the game-within-the-game, Love Love New Heart, and equally tragic if you don't get to have your heart broken the way mine was by some of those scenes. And so, that leaves my current project, MajoKoiNikki: It's good. Like, really good. So far I've only read the prologue (which I've now read most of twice, and first-pass edited half of myself), but I'm very, very excited to keep reading and see what happens next, and I'm basically head over heels for all the characters. When we were divvying up first-pass edit duties for the character routes a couple days ago, I literally couldn't decide which routes I wanted because all the girls are so much fun. Look forward to it!

    It's really interesting to see the new members form their own groups, it's as if the old members who shaped Fuwanovel are slowly disappearing and starting to not care about the site anymore, i personally am one of those people, and while it's not meant to be a bad thing, a lot of old members who used to be active are starting to realize how much this site has turned, there really is no unity on Fuwanovel at this point, It used to be a site dedicated to finding a common interest and banning together on site projects/ideas, but now it's just a haven for social cliques, Anyways, not trying to be a negative Nancy, Congratulations on 1,000.

    What is your opinion on cheating?

    I see no problem with cheating in singleplayer. Back in the days where I figured out hex editing, I invented a new game for myself: how many games can I gain 99 lives in? That actually turned out to be more fun than some of the games themselves and fun is the keyword here. Sometimes a game is good in general, but there is just one tiny bit in it, which you absolutely hate and why not use a patch to make you always win or skip that silly unbeatable minigame? I'm seriously considering cheating in Kamidori to get Devil Beads. You can only get one in each playthrough (unless you use certain rare magic items, in which case you can get up to 3-4). Even worse you need kill a high level boss in one blow while he has more than 50% hits left when you hit him, meaning there is a high risk you will not get any at all (which is the case for me). After something like 300 hours I still haven't managed to get even a single one and a minimum of 4 will be required to unlock all H scenes. I get the idea of hard to get resources, but this is just ridicules.

    Sorry it took so long to respond. But don't worry, I haven't forgotten. I think your point about Ayu never having met Makoto and Mai, was very interesting. I always assumed that because both Mai and Makoto possess miraculous powers of their own, that Ayu's was not needed. But the fact that they never even met Ayu is another good reason why her miracle wasn't used on them. And I think this is an interesting deviation that the VN has from the 2006 anime. The 2006 anime seems to imply that Ayu's last wish, was Yuuichi's last wish. So what ever he wished for, is what would happen. But in the VN, the wish is more clearly based on Ayu's desire. Hence why it only happens to people she met. As you seemed to conclude, Yuuichi really is the catalyst for all the miracles in Kanon. And what makes this so significant, is that he is unaware of this. Not only is he unaware, but he is very much presented to the reader as a normal guy (almost a self-insert). But if we take Mai's words to heart, there is something special about Yuuichi. But it seems that only the Heroines are able to see this. And because the story is in first person, we, much like Yuuichi himself, do not see what is so special about him. To us, it seems that these miraculous things happen around him. But perhaps there is something miraculous about him. In fact, the miracle of Ayu's ghost did not manifest until Yuuichi returned to the town. Ayu may have been desperately waiting for Yuuichi for years, but it was not until Yuuichi physically returned to the town that her ghost appeared. Theoretically, if the power for her to create a ghost of herself sub-consciously was all hers, then she could have done so at anytime. She could have had the ghost manifest and wander around the town for years, waiting for Yuuichi in the real world. But it is only when Yuuichi returns, that she is able to create this ghost. There are only two possible explanations. The most common interpretation (the one the anime implies), is that her desire to meet Yuuichi again was so strong, that she could sense his presence. Thus subconsciously she knew that Yuuichi was not in the town, so she didn't put the effort to create a manifestation of herself to search for him. That is, until she sensed his return. But the other possibility, is that she was unable to create a manifestation of herself to search for Yuuichi, until he returned. This reading suggests that Yuuichi carries some sort of miraculous aura around him, that gives birth for the opportunity for these miracles. Or if I were to further define what I mean, I think Yuuichi is like a conductor (like an electronic conductor) for miracles. He is incapable of creating any himself, but he has the ability to enhance the power of those who are capable. In the case of Ayu, she clearly holds the power of the miracles that relate to her. The Ayu that everybody sees is clearly a projection of her subconscious. But the ability to project such a realistic version of herself, may have to do with Yuuichi's presence enhancing her power to do so. In Mai's case, it is established that she has the power to save life, and to even create demons. But she is only able to unlock the ability to use her power to save herself through Yuuichi's presence. And lastly, regarding Makoto. Makoto's power was to create a temporary human form. But through her own raw power, she could only create a form of herself that would get weaker, die, and disappear. But because of Yuuichi's presence, her power is made strong enough where she can be reborn. So to conclude, I think there is something miraculous about Yuuichi. And I think this subtly is overlooked in the 2006 anime adaptation. Once again, I am so sorry that it took this long to respond. Simply put, I did not have the mental energy until now to write a thought out and articulate response to your response. I hope that the wait has not been in vain. PS: Code Geass is a really fun ride, hope you enjoyed it ( you have probably finished it by now).
