    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.

    Awesome and classy -- as always! I've been talking to a few BG artists lately from VNTS posts, so I'll ping them and see if anybody's free.

    Anyway, Zalor deserves it. Took me a while to finish this since I had to push some of the work to other people, though it only delayed me by a single day. i blame lino for being lazy (◕‿◕✿)

    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.

    Tay got a reaction from maefdomn in Hidden complexity   
    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)

    This may be better addressed in another post, but I'm curious to hear why you keep playing VNs, and why you find this industry so interesting.

    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.
