  1. Hi everyone! After 3 and a half years, a failed kickstarter campaign, and a recent steam ban (https://kotaku.com/visual-novel-sets-out-to-buck-trends-by-being-less-sexu-1840002895) we are finally launching the first entry of our ambitious Crime Opera series! See our itch.io page here: https://crimeoperastudios.itch.io/crime-opera-the-butterfly-effect Please know that all funds will go directly towards helping us create the sequel (which has already been completely written). It's bigger, longer, more intense, and takes place a full nine years later as our main cast reaches early adulthood! Please do not let the steam ban scare you away, as we are still pegging this at 14+.
  2. Hey LemiusK, Thanks so much for the support! I need to be completely forthright and honest, however, that at the pace we're accumulating funds, it is looking less and less likely that voice acting will happen this time around. I have been thinking, however, that if the series were to gain traction with the release of the sequels (which, by the way, are even better than this first entry), I could do a crowdfunding campaign to get them all funded for voice acting with some additional material added in, all in one package. It may be a while off, however, and I'm not throwing in the towel on this campaign until the moment it's over (again though, that won't stop us from releasing it). As for your Umineko comment, funny enough, it was Higurashi that inspired me to create this series. I loved the fleshed out histories of the town and the people, and so the story for this first trilogy was born of that reading experience. Higurashi and Umineko will always be faves of mine, they were just such amazing experiences. While Crime Opera evolved into a very different type of story, I do believe fans of Ryukishi like yourself will be able to catch glimpses throughout of his work's influence on me, despite our writing styles differing so much.
  3. Thank you! Whether the campaign is successful or not, we will definitely release it. The kickstarter will help us to release it quicker, and with a few more bells and whistles.
  4. Hello everyone! We have recently launched our Kickstarter campaign for the first entry in our Crime Opera series! Kickstarter Page Here We would love for you all to check us out!
  5. Hi there, I've been lurking here for a while now and thought I'd finally join up. I'm wanting to promote my OELVN series that I've been writing for a little over 2 years now, Mafiosi 1, 2, and 3. There are 6 planned titles in the series, with the first 2 being finished now. Unfortunately, I'm no pro when it comes to art, so like many other Renpy made games, the resources are taken from other places. I do believe the writing is fairly unique though, and the stories are something I'm pretty sure no one has really encountered in a visual novel before. They are crime thrillers, aimed specifically at readers who aren't so crazy about the romance types you see all over lemmasoft forums. They're decently lengthy too, which also sets them apart. Mafiosi http://rpgmaker.net/games/4996/ -Over 61,000 words -Story told through the eyes of the Gallo family children. Mafiosi 2 http://rpgmaker.net/games/6030/ -Over 90,000 words -Story told from most of the same characters, but as teenagers. Mafiosi 3 http://rpgmaker.net/games/7457/ -Being written now. I really hope I'm not breaking any rules here. I'd just like to promote these a little because I know how frustrating it can be to find lengthy, non-romance OELVNs out there and I think these will somewhat help to fill the void. Lastly, these are FREE downloads.
  6. I'm the same way as OP, the romance types just don't really do it for me. My absolute faves are Higurashi and Umineko, also loved Chaos;Head (I'll be reading Steins;Gate pretty soon). If you're not opposed to OELVNs, I've been writing the Mafiosi series for a couple years now. They're decently lengthy, (I think) pretty well written, but they use a lot of free resources since I'm no graphics/music pro. Two complete novels are entirely finished and ready to be downloaded (free), and I'm starting on the third novel now, which is the story I've wanted to tell from the very beginning.
