InvertMouse Posted August 5, 2014 Share Posted August 5, 2014 Hello everyone . There are a lot of cool folks here so I feel comfortable talking this out. I recently had a chat with a fellow games developer. During the discussion, I was told (not rudely so no hate needed ) that unless I made visual novels in a Japanese settings with characters with Japanese names, I am doomed to never get anywhere. I have made VNs and small games in private for many years now. It is only recently that I started sharing them around. Things started well, but recently, I have hit an invisible barrier. Of course, with more money and skill, that will help, but there is no doubt something else also. In truth, even on these forums, there is no longer much interest in my endeavors. Many of the more experienced folks here would know about the marketing struggles as well. It is a hurtful journey. A lot of us want to say it is about the story, etc. In truth, how much does this Japanese feel matter in VNs? I would love to know. I will always enjoy reading visual novels, and the friends I have made here are forever as well . However, I have been pondering if it is time to move to another development genre. Truth be told, I doubt things would change much (no hype). Nonetheless, I would like to talk it out. Thank you heaps for hearing me out guys m(_ _)m.
