    I'll give the demo a try sometime soon. It sounds pretty interesting, and for placeholder art, it's actually pretty decent. I look forward to seeing the finished digital designs in the future. Just keep up the good work.

    I'd imagine that's just called a ribbon and it's tied in a specific way.
    I don't know if this counts but...
    I liked it when Michiru wore that cat on her head like an accessory for a while.

    Hello! I'm Cuddlebeam and I strive to make amazing experiences and high quality via visual novels and dating sims! This is my game! (Steam Concepts page here! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=645219968)
    You are the Harem Protagonist! This is going to be an informal, humorous, fanservicey, dating sim game that will play on the tropes of the Harem genre.
    Our story starts out with you being born into a new and fresh Harem Show. You're the main character, and oddly enough, you're aware of that. With the help of the Narrator - a semi-omnipresent voice that only you can hear (because protagonist privileges, bruh) you are now have the quest of conquering the hearts of several hot anime chicks.
    Let's just hope that you're good enough for the challenge. Handling so many sweethearts won't be easy!

    Forgetful Frank reacted to Gauzra in The Devil Is Not Home [18+] - Progress 8/31/16   
    Under development by EggDev.
    Satan has urgent matters to attend to and must leave Hell!
    He is unsure that the demons will properly live up to his expectations in his absence and be able to truly represent what Hell is. To remedy the situation he decides to issue a true test of demonic will power.
    The Chaos Championship
    An all out competition between the three highest ranking demons in Hell to see who can destroy and spread what Satan will deem as true Chaos. The victor is offered their very own circle of Hell to rule over. An entire domain personalized to their tastes, no request too large!
    Faced with this irresistible offer, Jaya, Meridia and Kijo agree to undertake the challenge in order to prove which one of them is the greatest demon in all of Hell.
    The Demons

    Resident bookworm and owner of the nicest hair in all of Hell. A stern believer in rules and an aspiring writer. (Rumor has it her books aren't very good) Her ghostly companion follows her wherever she goes and tries to keep her safe. (Emphasis on tries.)
    She decides that using demons is the best way to win the Chaos Championship. What better way to raise Hell than using Hell itself?
    Brash and difficult to handle, Jaya acts before she thinks and has a huge appetite. Physically the strongest of all demons and she is usually seen bragging about it.
    She decides to invade Heaven in an attempt to win the Chaos Championship.

    The demon with the split personality. Incredibly lazy and always wanting to sleep. Everything is too much of a hassle and she has a difficult time controlling her sudden personality flips.
    Ends up drawing the short straw and has to go to Earth in order to attempt to win the Chaos Championship.
    Other Characters Coming Soon! 
    The EggDev Team
    We are a married couple that has dabbled in gamedev before. One day we decided to actually devote to it when we were able to afford a sandwich from our old crappy flash games.
    In charge of all the writing/music and actual programming of the game. Fortunately I've got a bit of experience with audio and music and have worked in IT, giving me a somewhat rounded skill set.
    The in house artist. Been drawing since she was about 12 or 13 years old. Huge work load on her for all art assets but we are progressing at a rapid pace. Additionally responsible for ghost writing and catching any mistakes I make. (There are a lot of them.)
    Progress Report - 6/28/16
    Progress Report - 8/31/16
    It's been a while since we've posted an update, we recently moved states and it took us about a month to finally get everything together and back on track. Never fear though, we've got a mockup teaser with a completed background. Hope you guys enjoy bright colors!
    Social Media and More
    Little bits and pieces of our day to day work can be found on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. You guys should follow us for instant updates!
    We are planning on completing an 18+ version and a SFW version that will be hopefully releasable on Steam. There is also the possibility of taking our idea to kickstarter but there are no solid plans for that in place yet. At least not until we have more completed CG's and are further along production.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!
    Stay tuned!

    Preferably legal: I don't mind if I have to pay regular Apple/Play Store prices, but it should be digital download since getting the records from half the globe away would be a nightmare.

    Forgetful Frank reacted to Nandemonai in Nocturnal Illusion Renewal Translation Project   
    Hello, Fuwanovel.
    I am Nandemonai.  Yes, the same Nandemonai from the PP/Jast forums, and the Mangagamer forums (back when they had forums).  A few years ago, I found out that the NI Renewal version is a thing, with improved gfx and voice acting.  Since Nocturnal Illusion is still my favorite game translated in the early years, I was interested.  I have some Japanese skills, so I thought I'd try my hand at translating the updated scenes.  This wasn't possible for two reasons.  1)  The remake breaks the scenes up into completely different file structure than the original; and 2) The original translation is just terrible.  Mostly unusable, and basically unsalvagable.  I'd known it wasn't very good, but was still surprised at just how "not good" it really was.
    Long story short, I decided to re-translate the entire game from scratch.  That was in 2011.  I finished up the translation some time ago.  Unfortunately, the coders I was relying on to reinsert the translation seem to have dropped off the face of the earth.
    The Team
    6/26/2016 Thanks to Ryechu for agreeing to be an editor!
    7/10/2016 A (belated) thanks to Mad Pierre mnakamura for agreeing to do the port.
    Well, to be honest?  Right now (6/19/2016) there is no "team", there's just me.  However, I did not reach this point all by myself.
    I would like to thank Kagami-sensei for generously assisting me in translating various lines that were giving me trouble.  Kagami has touched < 1% of the lines of the game, but they're all the hard lines.  Thank you very much.
    I would like to thank the folks over at vilevn.org - BaSF, Fenris, and kile.  Without their assistance, this effort would have gone nowhere.  They showed me how to extract the text from the original Nocturnal Illusion.  They extracted the text from the remake (which involved finding existing tools, and then fixing bugs in them when they didn't work right).  They sadly seem to have vanished.  The last communication I had from them was in 2014, where they hoped to have a new version of vile ready "in a few months".  Thank you guys very much for all the hard work.
    Translation: 100%
    Editing: 50%  Let's break this out.  Initial editing pass: (by me) 100% Second pass (by Ryechu Darklord Rooke): 24.9% 71.0% Last updated:  07/04/2018
    Coding: Need Humanity (0%)
    This project is now recruiting.  I need coders capable of getting the remade script inserted into something that runs on modern Windows.  Also, while I did a second pass of the translation and edited on the way, it probably needs real editors.
    Update:  In the rollback, an edit to this post got lost.  Ryechu and Darklord Rooke have agreed to edit this, and Mad Pierre mnakamura has agreed to port the game to an engine he is working on.
    Q.  Didn't you say the translation is at 100%?  Why 99%?
    A.  Yes, but there are a few minor nits that - since I'm creating this page anyway - I might as well try to crowdsource some picks for.  More details to follow when I have time to post them.
    As it turns out, I was able to figure these out myself.
    Q.  What about licensing?  Doesn't Peter Payne have Nocturnal lllusion?
    A.  Indeed he does, and I approached him about an official release.  He informed me he hasn't got rights to the remake.  (I presume the original contract is somehow still good, but the remake needs rights that can't be gotten because the company hasn't existed in 15 years.  But Peter didn't say.)  Peter did say a fan patch was okay with him.

    Hi, fellow VN explorers,
    I've just published an article on basic reverse engineering of unknown file formats of visual novels.
    It requires little technical knowledge (actually, everything except for the optional latest part can be done without programming) and it tackles the basic process of discovering information about simple container format and exploring its structure to extract files from a game archive.
    Hope it would be useful Feel free to ask any questions.

    So, I'm Rime. I've been at least somewhat involved in anime for many years, but not too long ago I moved into the visual novel scene as well. I've been studying the language for... a while... and do some translation stuff.
    I've only read a few VNs, but I intend to steadily add more to my list and decided that it was about time to register here ;_;
    Aside from that, I generally enjoy computer/gaming stuff and in particular, puzzles.

Befriended some cool Fuwa-spammers who helped me out a lot with recommendations. Fast-forward several months, it's now July 2016 and I made the mistake of starting too many VN's and now I'm all over the place. I'll bounce back and get through this, though!
    And then I'll start one VN at a time, or maybe have two simultaneously at most.

    Forgetful Frank reacted to Narcosis in Recent miko kitsune heroine VN, Tenkiame   
    Okay, I wanted to respond earlier, but got swamped with work.
    I'm glad to see another fan of kitsune and miko outfits~
    It just so happens I've actually bought Tenkiame a while ago and I'm loving every second of it. I have to admit, when I came upon the first news about the game, I instantly feel in love with it and couldn't wait for release. The game had that something special - perhaps it was the setting, characters and quality; maybe it was the overall atmosphere (the game is quite similiar to Monobeno in that manner), or a mixture of all of them. At first glance you might think it's no different than any moege, but this game is actually a classic, laidback slice of life romance drama with japanese folklore and supernatural elements. You may argue it's not really that special - and that might be true, as decent the game remains, but it's incredibly good at what it aims to be. Right now I am certain Sun Shower is definately the best August release and possibly, one of the best vn's released in a longer while.
    Regarding translation... I was curious myself, therefore I took the game apart. To be honest, Sun Shower really deserves to be translated and I'd be glad to see that happen as well. On the other hand, I'm not really the kind of person, that sits doing nothing; especially, when it's about things I adore. In the end, I decided to give it a try.
    And this is the result:



    Some screenshots I did during the testing, along with a quick translation.
    It didn't took me long to figure it out. Game uses SystemC along with E-mote plugin for the live animations. I'll be honest - Tenkiame would be incredibly easy to translate. The only troublesome thing I found about the game was the data repacking, but I guess nothing's impossible when you're so madly in love with your resident fox girls. So yeah, here you have it. Unfortunately, I don't really feel proficient enough to tackle the translation myself, but I'm willing to help anyone serious enough to start a translation project.
    Aside from that, Tenkiame has literally everything I need:
    Kitsune + cheerful imouto + sweet older sister + shrine maiden outfits + countryside + folklore
    Is this how true happiness looks like?

    Forgetful Frank reacted to bronx819 in Recent miko kitsune heroine VN, Tenkiame   
    So a few days ago, as I was scouring the interwebz, I came across this interesting looking VN called Tenkiami. The description on vndb is a bit lacking so I don't know what the story is about, but the two heroines (only two) are miko kitsunes, one pettanko and one kyonyuu.
    Here's the link: https://vndb.org/v17337



    I'm a fan of kitsunes and noticed a lack of VN's with kitsunes as the main heroines, translated ones anyway. I mainly wanted to put this out there in case there were any miko kitsune fans who wanted to try their hand at translating this. I don't know how to check the spript size so I can't say how long it is, if anyones interested then maybe someone can start a project for this? I don't have the time to help since I'm working and training for the military (all I'd be able to do is proofread or edit anyway) but if this gets translated I'd be very happy~

    Hello guys, I'm Steve Casalgrandi official writer Elisa Project: The Innkeeper. We noticed the presence of a post this in your forum made by one of our fans, but we have seen that the latter does not keep him up to date, so we felt the need to create an official, considering the many changes which are made in 'last period.

    before you start reading, I would like to point out that our prequel is available free of Steam and that there is a Kickstarer campaign.

    the links below you can find them when you're not exposing part of our work.


    Our Visual Novel has as its protagonist Elisa, a charming and beautiful girl who is struggling with the amorous proposals of a prince, a merchant and a knight.


    Our goal is to offer you a thrilling and interactive story where the choices you make will have the power to influence in a negative way or a positive history and give you a chance to unlock items that you can choose to use or not. Our prequel represents 20% of the full game and is divided into 3 main branches.

    We want to open this thread to talk openly with you our product, and to know what you think of the work we are doing. We recently added various things in our prequel including: The unlockable objectives, the car mode, the Steam cards and much more, plus we confirmed the 18+ version and the new art that will be inserted permanently in the game final.


    In any successful project it is behind an audience that follows him and that supports it, there is no game without players, so we are eager to hear your opinion on our visual novel. If you decide to play in our prequel does not hesitate to tell us what you think by writing a review on the forum or steam!
