  1. A game about elementary school children who perform legit college tier astronomical research on top of an abandoned train car in an abandoned train station on the other side of a forest on the other side of a bridge in the middle of the night (right before 6:00 a.m)*.
  2. Not exactly like MGQ, although has some similarities. If you lose to an enemy with a purple heart, there's a kind of animated ero manga defeat sequence. The plot is a lot more serious than the one you find in MGQ, which is relatively juvenile the whole way through. Miniature Garden gets pretty dark at times, although it still holds on to a little bit of childishness.
  3. I voted for the male character although I don't even know what he does, because he's the only male there.
  4. Miniature Garden is a doujin game made by Sekilala (their first game) Link to game >> http://www.dlsite.com/maniax/work/=/product_id/RJ141831.html Link to circle >> http://circlesekilala.blog.fc2.com/ Back in elementary school I remember seeing a motivational poster that said "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll end up among the stars." Although this is a bit of a cliche phrase, it is rather accurate when being applied to Miniature Garden. The game was extremely ambitious in terms of plot and although in the end I feel it fell short, the game is still easily one of the be
  5. I've been playing a lot of doujin games recently and I figured I should post/review about them to give them some coverage. I don't know how that fuwa reviews or whatever crap works so I'm just going to post them in visual novel discussion. Doujin games are games made by small publishers and are typically pretty low quality and made to satisfy a niche (especially in terms of eroge). They are all basically nukige. Despite this, doujin games can be quite fun and a nice breather compared to long visual novels as doujin games are typically quite short, and some games are more than just nukige. The
  6. I don't think it's that surprising. I'll try making up some numbers to see if a reasonable conclusion can be reached. Another game that is around 50+ hours is Aiyoku no Eustia. Aiyoku no Eustia has 65489 lines. 15% of 65489 lines is 9823.35 -> 9823 lines of h-scenes. The number differs based on game, but I think the average line count of a single H-scene is about 400-500 lines. Some games maybe have shorter ones. (This is not 400-500 lines of sex, this is considering the H-scene as the entire scene itself. Some story segments may be included in an "h-scene".) Under this conclusion, the g
  7. Root Double is a 50 hours game, TL+ED will cost them 36k$ and it will be done by Lemnisca, they did good TLs previously, or so community say. [85 EGS]For the whole TLC/Re-TL/QC Muv-Luv wanted 57,5k$. It was supossed to be done by Ixrec/Alternative Projects and some other "experts" The length of ML/MLA is approx 80 hours [90 EGS]Libra on the other side will need 80k$ for translation, length of the game is approx 20 hours, forgive me if I'm wrong, saw only 2 reviews on EGS listing 12h and 15h. Translation is done by people inside. [70 EGS]TL;DR Root Double - 50 hours - 36,000$ - 85 EGS Rating
  8. *squints incredulously* You realize what the target audience for eroge is... right? Doesn't change the fact that having a strong male cast is pretty awesome. Most of my favorite characters from VNs have been male characters (and not limited to protagonist).
  9. I just read the text in the text box. Having sentences broken down in to different color schemes seems kind of like a headache, and would affect how you read the lines. I like running with TA open in the background somewhere for looking up words I don't know and actually want to know. I can see how it might be useful if you aren't comfortable with parsing sentences yourself, but the sooner you do that the more enjoyable reading becomes. Playing without machine assistance also feels a lot different than playing with, it allows you to focus much more easily on the game. My guess on why it shows
  10. the structure of clannad is cancer good luck completing that game without a walkthrough
  11. dramatic as fuck route with an ending in which nobody is happy
  12. 微妙すぎるイケメン イケメン = handsome guy (kinda slangish, but not always negative implication. イケメンにしかい許さないこと) 微妙 = in this case closest to 怪しい I like dowolf's Super-Iffy Hottie most, and can't really think of a better english translation at the moment.
  13. The gameplay elements in debonosu's games are actually not bad at all. I remember having a lot of fun with the dragon raising simulator one (although there were some story themes that pissed me off). The one in this game is decent as well, although I personally don't like restarting at level 1 just with better items every time you exit the forest.
  14. I'm not sure how important it is, but Fuwanovel decided to take down torrents at some point or another in that time span I believe.
  15. I'm still not entirely sure what I'm supposed to get out of this thread yet. It's leaving out a lot of important drama and instead focusing on inconsequential matters such as changes in site policy. That entire period where nobody knew where Aaeru went, and then the site started going down, and then Tay is like uh I'm not entirely sure what to do maybe I'm in charge, and then when Fuwanovel is just like dead, and then a new website is created with a different host, before jumping back to the old host again, and then that period where someone thought it would be a good idea for Steve of al
  16. so i'm reading subahibi and i'm going to have some nightmares when i go to bed. the mental shock when something you're used to suddenly takes a complete shift in the opposite direction is actually surprisingly powerful mentally.
  17. You say the vast majority but.... even with that being the case, there's easily at least 5 rape scenes that aren't defeat-rape or something similar to that. The premise is that you go out to save the village women who were abducted by the Youkai, but you always arrive too late so you have a chance to experience a rape scene between the abducted woman and the youkai, with a follow up h-scene with the priest/someone the person loves and the person that was raped by the youkai. masterful writing
  18. It might be beneficial to alter your way of viewing the situation. You say you want to get a "job" in gaming journalism. I personally think this way of viewing things is flawed. Gaming Journalism isn't something you get a "job" in. Gaming Journalism is "work" you do because you enjoy doing it for whatever reason, such as enjoying the game you are writing about/interactions with the fan base related to the community. However, while it is work, it is not work that is available for just anyone to do just because they feel like it. Much like how you aren't going to be allowed to touch th
  19. I literally can't imagine this game without the 18+ content since Debo writes the plot to facilitate the 18+ content. I never would of imagined this game being translated.
  20. Because the game is fucking massive and it would take forever to translate all the text and edit all the images.
  21. I downloaded the patch and glanced through a bit. The translation so far is good and has no cause for complaint. Well done. Opening the secondary window to play the movie is a little weird though.
  22. There was literally drama every day. There was also this legendary post. http://forums.fuwanovel.net/index.php?/topic/1042-the-eroge-scene-in-parody-translator-baseball/?hl=baseball
  23. fuwanovel is dead long live fuwanovel
