I'm a dev who loves writing story-driven games. I make visual novels, dating sims, and mystery games. Hobbies include cooking, baking, cosplay, kendo, and eating free samples of food. I also totally love looking at other peoples' games and meeting new people, so I hope to see a lot of cool stuff here. ^-^

0 comments by sake-bento on Jul 7th, 2010

I was interviewed for the Geek Girl Talk blog, and the interview has just been posted. It's full of (possibly) interesting things about the visual novels I make.There's really not much in there about being a girl, and a whole lot in there about being a geek.


I'm glad this was posted, as any chance to talk about visual novels makes me happy. It's still a largely under-appreciated art, and I think that a lot more people would enjoy them if they just knew they existed.

Haha so that was the Hero game you were talking about! I didn't understand was a superhero raising sim. The idea sounds good :) As you know I'm making one as well (Undead Lily) but is more a RPG/strategy than a pure raising sim.
I think the gaming world needs more superhero games for sure. Good luck!

Got the idea while I was playing Spirited Heart, actually. XD It's not going to have any RPG elements in it. That's too much for me to try to do right now. D:

I don't think it matters a lot, it can be still quite fun just with stats raising, and romance :)

I really enjoyed your two games, maybe you could give me a Sneak-peak on some others if you make other games? :D

@Love_In_Space Hontounihontou? Then I'm totally in!

@Love_In_Space I live in a really small apartment, so I don't think I've have any place to put the scads of free money I'd get.

Don't Kickstart your first game. Or your second one. Probably not your third, either. #ShareAGameDesignTip

@Talentlesskun Yeah, it's my fault for not keeping Steam up to date. We've been slowed by a lot of things, but we're still going.

@Talentlesskun Not dead! Just slow (much to our own consternation as well).
