but story telling isnt my strong point sadly.
i will try tell more things about old obselete things in the future.

but after 2 years of nothing said i assume the idea is as dead as the rest.
As a professional graphic designer myself, indeed rotating text is the way to go.
You can also modify a font and/or let photoshop's pharagraph tool do the magic
but in the end what you want is to keep type space even and readable.
I played Juniper's knot on iPad, too, and when people want to try a VN on iOS I'll usually send them first to Planetarian and then to J.K.
I really enjoyed it for similar reasons to FinalChaos. Great experience.
Loved the post, maef. If I understood what you're saying, then you're expressing something I very much agree with: normal, human strength is more moving than the superhuman. Am I on the right track?
If so, I think the first time I started exploring this idea was back in high school when I read "Crime and Punishment" by Dostoyevsky. One of the book's central themes is the inner, quiet strength of Sonya or Raz vs the theoretical "superhuman" (Napoleon-figure) of Raskolnikov's thesis. Dostoyevsky comes to the same conclusion as you and I: the realistic, human inner-strength is real and far more moving than the superhuman.
Clannad's a great example of this. Funnily enough (and because it seems I can't ever go too long without bringing it up : P), my experience with the two Fate/Stay Night games very much proved your point, too: the fantasy/fighting bits were fun distractions, but I played the games because of the slice-of-life bits in-between. Sakura was my favorite character because of a quiet, realistic inner-strength which wasn't based in fantasy or superpowers. It was very much human, and regular, and therefore was much more moving and interesting to me.
(Let me know how/if I misunderstood your post. I'd love to get a better idea of what you're expressing)
Sorry, but I'm afraid there's been a mistake. We have less followers because very few people can stand the raw sex appeal of the Twitter team. The lower follower count is key.
We're saving marriages and relationships here, people.
