    We can only tell if you show us! I'm sure it will look good, just don't give up! The more busts you do, the easier it becomes. Good luck!


    P.S. When I said that we can only know if you show us, I am requiring a preview xD

    Haha! Thanks. I'll show you a preview soon once I get it colored c:
    Ugh! I have to make my dev teams Website, then In My Sleeps Tumblr, then the Dev team Twitter and facebook. UGHHH
    Should I make the In My Sleep private demo public? Loool. I could always make it public on here only. Decisions decisions...

    Why not go public, chance of more feedback.

    Well, I have a second demo I want to go public with that is 100% revised and would have voice acting. The private demo was made specifically for the members of my development team and the voice actresses. The problem with the private demo is that it is super flawed, and very short. Of course, I could always put a disclaimer and be like, this is super alpha... Or would it be beta? Whichever stage of  the game is still suppose to be super developmental, haha. I just don't want to put it up and then get it picked to shreds whilst the -real- demo is being created. Trying not to have the game get blown up in my face by making silly mistakes like putting up a bad demo, haha.

    If the second demo is much improved and closer to your imagined final product, sounds better to wait however long.
    I'm so exicited! Finished art for In My Sleep! Meet Miki and Aimee, our sister protagonists! c: I can't wait to make more! I wonder if I'll use these as their busts? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I gotta be innovative with this now that it's officially a horror game with it's own assets.

    You really thinkso!? Oh gosh, thank you! That means so much. I've been tirelessly working on them since midnight xDD And I haven't slept since I woke up yesterday lolol

    The artwork style is very interesting, it can definitely contrast with the horror game, and that's why it's PERFECT for this genre.

    I don't think it would contrast too much. I mean, theres tons of cute horror games.
    Siiiiiiiiiigh. Korean Flavored Horror or Japanese  Flavored Horror?

    Alright, being the total supah-intelligent nerdy midget with glasses that I am, I'll compare both.

    • Korean horror tends to focus on the suffering and anguish of characters rather than the explicit "blood and guts".
    • Japanese horror tends to focus on psychological horror and building tension or suspense, involving ghosts and poltergeists, and containing religious themes such as possession, exorcism, shamanism, etc...

    Kinda similar in a way, and at least it's not some overused American slasher horror.


    You'll pick Korean Horror if you really want to focus on a bad presence torturing characters, it's really good if you don't want your game to just be a bloody, gory mess of random death (Just like Corpse Party's anime. I HATE THIS ONE), and it allows you to construct a backstory around every single character.


    You'll pick Japanese horror if you're a weaboo. e.e


    AND mostly because psychological pain is a very interesting subjects in games and movies, and I think it's a great occasion to take it, since it's not washed up yet. Plus, building up suspense is one of the keys to a great horror game, you should always keep the player on his toes, make him scared of what's going on, and what will happen next, build a tense story that unwraps like a poisonous gift. The theme of ghosts and possession might be kinda overused, but you could take that out of the way and you'll have great bases for your game.


    OR you could invent your own horror and use your own motifs, themes, and imagery. As long as you don't lose yourself in the freedom of your creation, then it should be just fine.


    (ALSO PICK JAPANESE IT'S DA BEST GENRE <3)
    Just finishing up the tutorial of In My Sleep. Shifting to a horror game is going to be fun.

    Yaaaaaaaay thank you !!! =D
                Guess who's back, back again! Guess who's made, made no progress in his game! Lol. I took time off my game and away from the forums due to depression and a family crisis. To everyone who helped me before my disappearance, thank you for the help! I did not just take it and leave (Looking at you @LadyBaskerville and @Fugama) You were both a ton of help. I look forward to speaking with you two again, and honestly, we all know I'll need the help again. A dyslexic dummy can't make games very well on his own. Haha! This also doubles as a belated thanksgiving post, cause I did feel llike I should've came here to give thanks to you guys. Oh and that nugget @Feliaria! She's like my bestie now haha. Hell, I'm thankful to everyone on the forums. It was rocky at first. @Shaz Can tell you just how bratty I was at first, haha. I've really come to appreciate everyone on this site. Even the people who aren't here anymore and have topics and stuff that are old and ghosted. Really though, thank you guys.


                I started working on my game June 12, and I joined this site on June 23rd. It's november 25th, and honestly, if you asked me back in June where I would be right now, I'd have said in a casket. I was really depressed and suicidal when I started working on my game. I was really bratty on here at first because I was misreading everything as just... Like, being talked down to. Again, sorry, Shaz. I never formally apologized for that one time I blocked you cause I was a little brat. But yeah, just, like, writing this I'm getting so emotional. This has saved my life. Even if I never finish my game, or it becomes one of those gross "RPGMaker" games that none of us want our games being... Working on it, and being on here, has just given me a drive to keep going and to be so much stronger than I use to be. It's cliche to say this saved my life, but it did. I contemplated suicide during my absence... I didn't do it though. I was thinking of family, friends, etc etc. Those weren't making it any harder to kill myself, but then I thought about the joy my game could bring strangers. Then I thought of the joy it brought me, and how I smile everytime I'm on here with all of you. This proves I didn't kill myself, I guess.


                   So, thank you so much everyone. And a happy belated thanksgiving to the RPGMaker Forum Family. (I was going to say RPGMaker Family, but I've found about two other sites that seem to be like what the official forums are, but I dont know those people so they aint family like you guys are) 


    Oh what the heck.


    HAPPY BELATED THANKSGIVING RPGMAKER FAMILY!


    Sincerely,


    Lulingi1, or Tino... Or that one Bratty forum member who is still kind of a brat but genuinely cares for everyone on here now.
    Random whining. I really wish I knew more people on this site... Not just for game devving, but to talk to as well. I don't get why I'm so shy on the internet. Oh well.

    @LuLingqi1 - I'm obsessed with Neptunia. :p No one understands, not even myself.

    @StrawberrySmiles I am equally obsessed with it, haha. My biases are 5pb. and Tekken, haha.


    @mlogan Time is a virtue. I was never good with patience. I guess I need to be more outgoing though, hm? Maybe I'll check out a discord. Granted, I only use the phone app, and it's a hot mess.

    @LuLingqi1 - My waifu is Compa, though I like Nepgear and Plutia/Iris Heart. And 5pb. She needs to show up more. XD
    I'm just gonna ask this in my status update cause I wanna give an update with it. 


    I have finished the full skill set of two classes!

    Well, the way I see it is if a service advertises on TV so much that I can see their ads more than once in the couple hours a week I see cable, they're likely charging their users far too much.

    @taarna23 I think Wix has regional prices just like Steam.
    I am paying about $35 a year (including the domain), which I think is pretty fair. Although, I think the unlimited bandwidth one costs a bit higher(around $65 or so).


    I don't know what the prices are in other regions.
    I have returned! I got all my plugins fixed and in order finally! Haha, I love disappearing than reappearing on here. I don't think anyone notices, but it's still fun to do it! How is everyone? (I would like EVERYONE to answer this, whether you're a stranger or someone who may not like me cx)

    Space heaters, water dispenser thinger, spending the majority of my awake time at work... And today, if all else fails I could go stick a pot outside for an hour, boil the results and then pour it through my brita. I also have some large buckets of water for filling my toilet.

    More or less, lol. I'm cold and stressed. I'll live.
    Screwed up real bad with Row Formation lol. The Rows are WAAAY up on the top. Blegh. I need help. Is anyone willing to help me figure this out?
    I'm about to cry. I've been trying to find resources, or just images, of like chests, that are side viewed, or facing up, as opposed to down, because the fact that almost everything on the tiles faces down, restricts my maps so much, and when I did the layouts, I didn't realize I couldn't move anything. Map making is so stressful.

    Yeah - link to forum rules is on the tabs at the top of the page, so easy enough to find.


    Specifically, you can add a link to your banned.url in your signature (which then makes it visible on all your forum posts), but you can't make a post or a thread saying "here, have a look at my banned.url", and you can't advertise it on the profile feed.  imo putting it in your signature is better as it means it'll be seen more often, if you're a frequent poster.


    It might also be worth checking the rules pinned in the Crowdfunding forum - I know if you have a kickstarter or gofundme or similar for a game in development you can post about it there (a full game profile plus the link, not just the link).  You might also be able to do this for a banned.url.  I just don't recall as I haven't looked at that thread for a while.
    Shaz
    Shaz
    oh - I left out ... the above applies if the banned.url is for a game you're making.  It doesn't apply if it's for resources or scripts/plugins or other stuff.  So you could do it, but I couldn't, for example (if I had one).
    My banned.url is up! I can't wait to finally start working on my characters' portraits! Whoot!

    Ugh! So upset with myself! I've been setback so much by this freak storm! Knocked out my wifi, then knocked off the power for almost eight hours! All in all, I'll just fix the little things with the demo, then post it... I hope. I'm also about to open up a banned.url in the next couple days! Been lining and coloring a lot of my artwork!

    How exactly do I upload the demo, without like, giving away the project files...? RMMV is confusing
    LuLingqi1
    LuLingqi1
    So then how would someone who doesn't have RMMV get to play my demo, would they just have to download all the files for the project stuff as well and just open the exe?

    You can use Engima Virtual Box. Most people wouldn't know how to or care to get the files from the package.
