Simply, I enjoy being creative.
Specifically, there were two events leading me to visual novels. The first was the movie “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” then DrPinkCake’s visual novel “Acting Lessons.”
Why the “The Last Jedi?”
TLJ was the glass wall-breaking moment for me. Before TLJ, I was unaware of the culture war and ignorant of the decline of Western media.
As I watched The Last Jedi for the first time, I felt hollow and confused. On my only re-watch of TLJ, I realized it was an awful film sullying something I once loved.
The Last Jedi left me with a realization. If a major movie studio chose to greenlight a 200+ million dollar project, a project whose story destroys the goodwill gained by the previous film while tarnishing one of the most successful franchises of all time, then whatever I could write would never be as horrendous as the script of “The Last Jedi.”
I began writing a novel following my TLJ realization. I finished writing my post-TLJ novel in 2019 and was deep into editing. Wanting a break, I jumped onto Steam to play a game.
Nothing in my Steam library was luring me in. I went through my recommended list, coming across Acting Lessons. AL had an overwhelmingly positive rating with over 10 thousand votes.
I bought Acting Lessons, unaware it was an adult visual novel. I played and enjoyed AL. Acting Lessons opened the visual novel genre to me, and I fell deep into the rabbit hole.
I was inspired and began researching how to produce my visual novels. I shelved my post-TLJ novel and began work on my first visual novel story. Simultaneously, I started learning how to use a 3d program and how to code.
Awoken and inspired I ventured into creating visual novels.
Please reach out if you cannot find an answer to your question.
A visual novel (VN) is a form of digital interactive fiction. Visual novels are often associated with the medium of video games, but are not always labeled as such themselves. They combine a textual narrative with static or animated illustrations and a varying degree of interactivity.
I work on biannual release schedule. I hope to switch to a quarterly schedule in the future.
I am not including adult content to make pornography, but as a tool to enhance relationships within my stories.
Nudity and intercourse are natural to human existence.
It means the content in the game is for adults 18 years or older and should NOT be played by anyone younger.
[NSFW] = Not Safe For Work. I recommend playing the games in the privacy of your home.
