    Website: https://liviagame.com Sign up for news at our upcoming Indiegogo & be the first to hear of the upcoming demo! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/livia-little-fledgling The brightest and the best of all children in the Saldacian Empire are brought in to Snowdrop Academy. There, they’re taught etiquette, leadership, history, poetry… and, of course, the use of Magic. These children will be the future leaders and champions of the Empire. And among them… a little orphan girl called Livia. You are Livia. This is your story. You see her live a life of wonder, magic, friendships and challenges. You see her develop her skills and talents and grow from a sweet little girl to a bright young woman. What kind of a person will your Livia be? What kind of a future awaits her? Hi all! Thanks for checking out the project! Livia: Little Fledgling is a visual novel / life simulator with heavy RPG elements. It’s a story-based game in which you go through young Livia’s life in a magical academy, make friends and enemies… and try to figure who you are, and who you’re going to become! We take inspiration from cult classics such as Princess Maker and Long Live the Queen, but give the concept our very own flavor! What makes this game special? What if you could make your own character to be just the kind of a person you want them to be… and the game world actually reacted to it? In Livia: Little Fledgling, the game track all the choices you make throughout the game and changes accordingly. When you act a certain way and make certain kinds of dialogue options, other characters start reacting to you differently. And, once you gain a certain reputation, your whole story changes: a kind-hearted, popular Livia will encounter very different story events than a hard-boiled Livia with a reputation of a bully! At the end of Livia’s school journey, you will see one of dozens of endings, showing you what Livia grows up to be… an artist? magician? carpenter? teacher? …a princess? In most story-based games, you’re either given a pre-made character with a complex personality, needs, wants, dreams and desires; a character who’s really interesting, but isn’t someone you created. Or else your character will be a silent protagonist who never speaks and never shows any trace of emotion or character, outside of what you imagine in your head. Livia: Little Fledgling tries to do something completely different… a character who’s uniquely yours, and the game world acknowledges that! Who is making the game? Livia: Little Fledgling is developed by Fabler Studios, a small but ambitious new indie studio based in Finland. Our game designer and writer, Fabler, has worked as a game designer for “real” game companies since 2011. Most recently he worked for Frozenbyte on games such as Trine 3, Shadwen and Trine 4. Fabler Studios, and Livia: Little Fledgling in particular, is his leap into indie game development, with the ambition of exploring narrative games in completely new and unprecedented ways! Our character and background artist is the amazingly talented LPchan. You can find more of her work at her ArtStation: https://www.artstation.com/lpchan ! Our UI has been created by the wonderful Sasquatchii. For programming, we’ve received help from multiple great and talented programmers: carrot, naomimyselfandi and drKlauz! Depending on the scale of the full game, we’ll be expanding the team in the coming year! Will there be a demo I can try? Yes! A free demo version of the game will be available very shortly. The demo version will contain a fraction of the features we’re hoping to accomplish, as well as a small preview of exactly what the adapting gameplay could be like. All of this will be greatly expanded upon and improved based on your feedback! Don’t worry, though: a small example it may be, but the demo already contains over 60,000 words of story and a proper little story arc for you to experience as you get your glimpse into what life in Snowdrop Academy might be like! Why a crowdfunding campaign? Livia: Little Fledgling is a passion project that we’ve already invested lots of time and work into. The full version of our dreams will require even more work, especially with all the plans and ideas we have lined up! We’re hoping to raise funds to finish the full game, yes; but also, to see just how big and ambitious we should make the final game! If the crowdfunding reveals modest interest, we’ll polish the game into a finely tuned little story that will likely last for a couple of years of in-game time. If the interest is great, however, we’ll be happy to take Livia through all her school years! Either way, we’ll look forward to bringing you the best, most complete story and experience we can! Where will the full game be released, and how much will it cost? The game will be released on Steam and Itch.io for the PC. Other platforms pending! Final price will depend on a lot of factors and is yet to be decided. If you take part in our crowdfunding campaign, your pledge will absolutely guarantee you a copy of the final game, no matter the final price! When will the full game be finished? Depending on the success of our Indiegogo campaign and the final scope of the project, we’ll be looking at a 2021 or 2022 release!

    13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. It's made by Vanillaware, who were the makers of the 2(.5)D side scrolling action RPGs like Odinsphere, Dragon's Crown on the PSVITA. Which, sue me, have been on my Vita backlog for years now. Unfortunately there's only a PS4 version out atm for Aegis, yay exclusives, would've liked a Switch version plx. And holy crap, this is one of them hidden gems. This thing was released in Sep 22 this year, and already has an average 4.9 stars with over 400 ratings on Amazon (and Amazon reviews are notorious for slamming VNs for "not being a real game" etc. smh). Even VNDB averages a whopping 8.95 with only 126 votes. It's on sale on Amazon physical NA for 30 bucks. 13 protagonists whose stories all intertwine in an epic Sci-Fi mecha time traveling world ending saga. It's not a traditional VN with static sprites and backgrounds; I'd say it's more of an interactive adventure visual novel. IADVN or something. Dialogue will be displayed over the character rather than a dedicated textbox at the bottom middle, though thankfully there is still a backlog you can refer to anytime. Presentation is supreme, you can control your current protagonist in a vivid 2.5D environment: there will be cars driving and pedestrians walking in the background when you're in the city, trees/branches will be swaying from the wind, characters all have fluid, expressive animations even when idle. The world feels alive. Then you think about the most recent VN where you have static sprites and empty backgrounds and it's like man, this is the future! Yes, the world is threatened by Mass Effect 3 Reaper wannabes and it's up to the 13 protagonists who are able to control their own personal mecha robot "Sentinels" to defend the universe across multiple time periods and yes I made it sound cheesy, but seriously the presentation of this game is top notch and gets you hooked right away. The story plays episodic, there will be 13 protagonists with their own shenanigans and the story progresses by shifting protagonists and perspectives until all of their paths eventually overlap. Every character has their own goals and motivations, relations and revelations, and every time you think you answer some questions, you get a new bundle of them in your face! There's a real time SRPG gameplay element that's thrown in to compliment the adventure novel aspect. It's almost universally agreed upon that it's definitely on the weaker end of the enjoyment spectrum, but it'd be pretty hard for the 2.5D to show epic battles between the 13 Sentinels and the Reapers, and we need some gameplay to appeal to the masses so I guess that's that.

    VN get more popular in West on console!

    Functionally, the new Microsoft console probably has the best hardware for VNs. Sadly, the lack of a foothold in Japan will hinder them - just like it has with each iteration of the xbox - in actually getting any games out of Japan on their system. Consoles have pretty much become a stand-in for people who can't afford gaming PCs over here. A gaming PC generally bottoms out at $1000 and there is no limit to how much one can cost, if you go all-out. Even the current generation of consoles is half that, which means the trade-off in flexibility is attractive for people who just want to game. VNs have minimal requirements - relatively speaking - but high-end VNs sometimes have ridiculous ones for the content (I mean, why should any VN have a 3GB RAM requirement? It isn't like there is all that much in the way of gameplay). The fact that most VNs are based off the PC produces the need for ports, which cost a surprising amount of money to produce sometimes (depending on the original engine and the system they are porting it to). Like any port, the benefit vs cost analysis is everything to most companies. If people buy the VNs that get ported enough to justify the cost, then we'll see more get ported and sent over here. Personally, if I was going to play a console VN, I'd want it on the Switch. The Switch is more convenient than either of the other two systems, with the ability to easily connect it to a TV, its light weight, and its portability. I really wish the PSP version of Ayakashibito would get ported to Switch, lol. As for popularity? That's more questionable. It's going to be years before we see any real results from the console market for VNs. There just aren't a lot of JVNs that aren't otomege on consoles just yet, even over there. Without the content, there is nothing to lust after, after all. Note: Understand that when I say there is a 'limited' number of JVNs on console, I mean this in a relative sense. One reason that VNs have managed to create a niche over here is the sheer number localization companies have to select from with JVNs. The number of 'classics' and high-quality VNs in general makes it possible to cherry-pick, whereas consoles don't, as of yet, have the numbers to allow for that.

    VN get more popular in West on console!

    as zalor says. but yea we will most likely see alot of ports to the switch, if not in english the market will be getting alot bigger in japan as sony no longer will battle the handheld market. where ,any vns have thrived in the past on the vita. also switch is apperently easy to throw ports onto if you have a hacked switch you can get basicly any renpy game to run on it with homebrew app. so even if you buy it on steam you can just transfer it. not that im a console gamer myself. but pretty much only reason why im alittle interested in that underpowerd thing.

    I think the Switch is a great platform for VNs for 2 reasons. You can read on the big screen, and you can read in a more portable manner (like lying in bed with the switch in your hands). In a sense, it kind of baffles me that in the west at least, VNs have pretty much been exclusively a computer thing. Whereas in Japan, the PSP and Vita were a major platform that a lot of VNs got released on. But the Switch is the perfect in between by being both portable and a console. Idk where this will take us in terms of future releases, but I am quite hyped for the Umineko port for the Switch.

    I know what you mean, but its nothing unusual in the world of japanese entertainment. Girls treating protagonist like shit that is. Dunno whats so extremely funny and interesting about it.

    You know, i think you'll change your mind later. Haku gets some serious development, and thats no joke. Also the plot rears its ugly head sooner or later too. Especially during mask of truth. I'd say the first just suffers from being more of a setup for the finale (mask of truth). They're all heavy with sol, but its sol events you grow to appreciate once the plot properly picks up.

    VN get more popular in West on console!

    It's it just me or have vn get more popular in West on console like Switch and PS4, I'm not sure about Xbox one or Xbox Serie X and S. It's seems we are getting more VN on console lately. We just got Root Double Crime Days and soon we are getting Autumn Journeys on Switch. We have Clannad, Tomoya After, The Fruit of Grisaia, Phantom Trigger and many other VN on Switch. I'm very happy with that, since I enjoy play VN on Switch. I hope we are getting more VN in West on console. I have four favorite VN I hope get on Switch. 1. Kanon(I know it might not be possible, but I hope it get ported on Switch) 2. Da Capo 3. Flowers -Le Volume sur Printemps- 4. Air. I'm not much into yuri but I did enjoy Flowers -Le Volume sur Printemps- and I have plans to continue play it. What do you guys think about we are getting more VN on console? What VN do there hope get on console?

    Yeah, Consoles obviously don't allow to install games outside of their digital stores/official releases. But Switch looks indeed port-friendly and open to indies. Which is, as usual, both good and bad because people might easily stumble into something like Pantsu Hunter and get their first impression of what VNs are that way.

    This is where you can post suggested emotes and reactions. Make sure to remember that you have to name them. Emotes will be resized to the new 64x64, so test if they work at that resolution Reactions will be resized to 100x100 and will be a very limited quantity Macro emotes will be very rare, so going for normal ones is preferd. examples of new resolution: Emotes will be accepted or denied at no specific time, will be checking for others opinions.

    As consoles open up as digital platforms it's going to be easier for VNs to "infliltrate" them. Bah, we even have Hatoful Boyfriend on the Xbox Game Pass which amuses me greatly. Still, at the same time, you have stuff like Sony pushing many visual novels out of their platform and digital stores on consoles generally going the Steam route, being flooded with indie games and plain shovelware, meaning VNs become available but do not gain much visibility, reaching mostly just the existing fanbase. The one outlier might be the Switch, which really seems like a good environment for all-ages VNs, with the advantages of portability and weeb-leaning playerbase... I'm don't think the presence on the PS (outside of Japan) and Xbox is very meaningful, unless the games appear on subscription services more and thus encourage people to try them out. For me getting a VN on my Series S would only make marginal difference... It could be a bit more comfortable to read them on the TV, but normal screen is good enough and gives me more options to take screenshots etc. But hey, having more options is always cool!

    Akai Haato (赤井はあと)

    Akai Haato (赤井はあと) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of its first generation of VTubers alongside Yozora Mel, Aki Rosenthal, Natsuiro Matsuri, and Shirakami Fubuki. Haato appears to be a classic tsundere who teases her fans by calling them kimo ota (creepy otaku), among other things. However, she does nothing to discourage creepy behaviors, and frequently does weird, creepy things herself; for example, using cropped NSFW fanart for video thumbnails, sniffing her own feet, and decorating her home in Animal Crossing: New Horizons with lewd drawings of herself and Tsunomaki Watame. Though Haato compares her fans to pigs, she seems perfectly content to (metaphorically) splash in the mud right next to them. Her sense of humor is extremely deranged even by hololive's standards. She often publishes short, random clips that make little sense even to Japanese listeners, and has a series of cooking videos in which she commits atrocities such as boiling beef in a mixture of Mentos and cola, or melting marshmallows over sliced ham. When playing video games, Haato has considerably more confidence than actual skill, which usually ends up biting her in the back. She is infamous for her ear-splitting scream, and often releases these screams even when not playing horror games. Fans refer to these brutal screams as "Haato's blessings." She used to greet her viewers with "Oha-rouge", but now prefers to use "Haachama-chama". She currently have 644 000 subscribers

    my mom caught me with Euphoria

    So, I was reading this masterpiece solely for the story and was going to skip the sex, when my mother simply invaded my bedroom and saw Sensei with her ass/vagina open to the screen. Now, she thinks I''m a pervert and that I was fapping. Worst thing: I'm gay and she knows that.

    Akai Haato (赤井はあと)

    BTW, Haachama is seriously pushing towards learning proper English and doing English streams regularly. She was meming for the last two months by doing English content occasionally and tagging it #HololiveEN, and also playing on the English hololive Minecraft server, but I think the management told her to cut it out. However, while she dropped the tag, she said she'll double down on doing English streams... She's just finishing high school and it must take extreme effort from her to learn the language and put out these amounts of both JP and EN content. She's a walking meme, but she's also kind of amazing – now doing a karaoke marathon ultil she hits 800k subscribers – and she's like 3k away from it, so I encourage everyone to subscribe to her before she passes out.

    my mom caught me with Euphoria

    I read your review, very informative, thank you. Euphoria already very quickly annoyed me with the h-scenes, especially the dialogue/text during them, a lot of which seemed absurd and rarely seemed to add anything to the plot. It definitely would be a much better VN if all of that would be tweaked, and cut in at least half, as you said in your other post. If Maggot Baits is even worse in that regard, it really doesn't seem worth it, even if I was curious about how extreme a VN can get.

    The points we considered when selecting the steam version - Contributing to the global VN market. - The English version, which uses kirikiri, supports Unicode and therefore is more suitable for translations into any language, unlike WhaleEngine (From the Japanese version) which uses SJIS and supports only Japanese / English characters. - The English version is already in English (obviously), so instead of translating the entire Japanese game, it seemed more practical to just import the h-scenes and translate them. - Translating the steam version does not prevent you from translating the Japanese version, so even if we do not translate the Japanese version, someone may take the trouble to import the translation. I considered making an automated port of the translation, but that would greatly increase our work because even the automated port would require manual work in order to adjust the sections of the scripts that have changed, after all some dialogue was removed and / or changed in the English version. We can't just to do a ctrl + c ctrl + v, the higher we try to go, the harder we could fall. So, the project is basically and exclusively focused on translating the h-scenes already ported. Some more adjustments are expected later on, for quality control and to ensure stability of the 'mod', because the scripts were literally rewritten and complex binaries edited by hand. I personally expect to have some bugs to fix later.

    What are you playing?

    What a nice page number that we have lol. That aside, since I'm not particularly playing anything yet I'll just comment about Robotic Notes here. I know that DaSH here did offer some nice plot, although to me it's just undermined by the presence of Daru as the MC. I mean sure Daru here is a good character in Steins Gate, but as far as he become the MC let's just say that I prefer them to have Kaito as the only MC. I mean sure the people may like his presence so I can't exactly says it's a bad thing, although if a series or VN decided to make a crossover it could be signify that the company here is pretty much quite desperate and it shows with Robotic Notes seeing that they need to ask Daru to become the MC, and after I scanned some of DaSH playthrough I think they don't really need Daru to be the MC at all seeing that Kaito can still fulfill his role to be the MC because Daru didn't really interact much with Robotic Notes casts from what I see. Yes I know that DaSH here is meant for 'Daru Super Hacker', although once again it's pretty much a desperate attempt to grab some attention from the fans by blatantly slap the unrelated characters nickname in the sequel. I guess in the end I can only say that my reaction with crossover would be quite complicated, because I always think that it should be okay as long as it's not in canon series and yet I didn't find it okay if the company decided to do it. I know that the staffs here want to make the heroes prepared themselves for their eventual confrontation with a mysterious and ambiguous group (C of 3 times 10 squared) so that the crossover would obviously inevitable, but I felt that rather than set them as threatening currently I can only see them as the plot device to keep the player to pay attention to the series with the promise that the staffs will eventually have them defeated along with give the excuse for the need of crossover (Especially in DaSH). If the staffs just want to make it as ambiguous threat and not to be defeated, I prefer them to not refer it at all although then again it would allow the staffs to easily explain on why some villain need to be evil (Because they can just use the excuse of them being the member of committee), so I sort of understand on why the staffs keep the ambiguous villain group there (Even though I didn't quite like it). Anyway my rambling aside, I think Robotic Notes here should be good enough to be standalone. Granted that there's Nae who is basically Steins Gate character, but at least she's just a side character in there as well (She's very good looking if I may honest). Also I know that Steiner did say that the final arc for DaSH is a good one, although I can also said that it's similar to Chu Chu series (Pseudo sequel for both of Chaos series) in that it's a series that have fanservice filled and then ended with a serious plot, and it shouldn't be a coincidence that the main writer for DaSH here is also the one who write Chu Chu series.

    Good day, and say hello to our team: we are Mooseworks! I've been working on translating this game for several years going on 11 years now. There was a previous translation effort that gave up, and I just took over and have been working on it since. But we'd like to move it here, since this forum fits better for a VN, and we want to get people to help out! Update 2017-8-31- All current and future work has been moved to the 2016 HD remake of the game . The old 15% patch for the original 2008 version is still linked however. Update 2019-6-2- The 56% English patch with interface translations for Musumaker HD is out. Download it here. Just extract or copy and paste to the game directory. Be sure to apply the official 1.18 update patch first, however! Get it here. Please note - the patch breaks the saveload function for dialogues longer than 1 line. If you want to keep your save game, make sure to save on a non-split line, the schedule screen, or the "who will you train screen?" screen. Game overview VNDB: https://vndb.org/v1160 Official website: http://www.digitalcute.com/ Product link: https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B00L5PAVLM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&keywords=むすめーかー&qid=1504205685&redirect=true&sr=8-1 (There is a non-horribly censored one on digital-cute's website page, here) Brief description by sanahtlig from Mangagamer: Current members RaurosFalls - project leader / translator tymmur - technical leader / programmer Progress Currently there is a 15% translation patch out, which translates from the beginning of the game to a certain date (April 1st). Meanwhile, the actual current "patch" (for the 2008 version of the game) is available for download here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/i3levft6xv3cs7t/musu_translation_patch_v1.0.zip [released August 9, 2015] Translation is ongoing and status updates will be posted. Recruiting So our decision to move here came about because we think no one knows about our game, and we want more translators to help out! We'll gladly take on anyone who wants to help. This is too much for one man to bear . If someone also wanted to lend a hand decensoring images, that would be amazing.

    Aight, finished YU-NO. I actually only had 1-2 more hours of readtime when I made my prior post lol. Overall enjoyable. My failure to appreciate the final route as much as I could've was more due to my tendency to come into final routes waaay too overhyped. I blame Ever17. Ever since that VN I've always expected true routes to be mind blowing braingasm experiences so it can be very easy for me to bamboozle myself and end up disappointed. One of the things I liked the most was the jigsaw puzzle plot revelation format, where every heroine route focuses on a core mystery and you only get the complete picture once you've read everything. It's a great way to keep the reader hooked. Not gonna do too much of an indepth misc. thoughts, I'm kind of out of mental power atm sorryz (Spoilers): And that's that. Love reading VNs. Every time I finish one I get antsy because it's like, damn that was good, I wanna read another one like this, will the next VN i read even be as enjoyable? Then I pick a completely different genre and setting and then come to enjoy that and the cycle repeats. Question is... what shall the next VN be..? (and no, it's not gonna be AoKana, sorrz no pureblood high school SoL for me plx) *Looks at the date* Oh, I know!

    Greeting from a humble reader

    Hi, I just started to read Visual Novel recently, for about 3 weeks, and had read only 2 titles, both are Key's, Little Busters and Summer Pocket. Currently reading Ao no Kanata, and it'd great so far. I'm trying to support the dev as much as possible by bying game on Steam, and my goal is to buy all Key's product cause I'm technically a Key fag now. Nice to meet you, reader fellows

    Hey let's blow the dust off of this subforum for a bit shall we? I noticed we haven't really updated the profile info since... Fuwa was made basically (other than that one time we added Steam to user profiles). I figured I'd go ahead and add some things users might want. List of things added so far: Twitter has now been added under Contact Methods Anilist, ANN (Anime News Network) and Kitsu (formerly known as Hummingbird) are now options for those that don't have a MAL account Transgender, Other and Attack Helicopter are now available gender options Projects has now been added under Profile Information where you can specify whatever VN projects you work (or have worked) on. This isn't for me alone though, so I decided to make a thread and ask for people's suggestions regarding what other fields might be useful to have in their profiles. Important note: These are small fields that will go either under your contact methods or your profile information section. They're meant to be short. Preferrably things like the username you have on the respective website or something along those lines. Because of this, things like Youtube channels have already been ruled out due to the URLs being too long. Keep that in mind when suggesting. Furthermore, make sure that your suggestion isn't just for you but is actually something legitimately useful for the users on the forum.

    my mom caught me with Euphoria

    MAN DOWN, MAN DOWN!!!! What Okarin-senpai said is the golden rule, play the H scenes when you're fully alone, it's better for your heart. Even when the game is not in euphoria's level I always get embarassed when someone is walking around in the house ...Unless the other person is as strange as you . I didn't played euphoria, I'm just not into this, but my younger sister did. She tried to hide, but eventually she herself told me. Now that I know her true colors, she keeps suggesting strange games to me without a shame. What a lovely family we are.

    Just in case anyone is interested in knowing, the new role I've been given managed to lock my permissions such that I could not see any forums or forum posts; not even the one announcing my change in role. I thought, for moments, that the forum had imploded.
