        @starlight dream That's a good idea, I did that for my game.
        @StrawberrySmiles I can make you a fancy banner for your signature like I did for my game. And I can make a supporter version for others who want to share your game.

        Very few of his graphics packs are released for free. You're gonna be paying for it one way or another. I don't see the difference. As patron, you don't have to stay on for a prolonged period of time.

        I know, but tbh, I won most of his packs in contests, so I didn't really pay anything. So thus, I'm okay with waiting, since I do that all the time anyway. I was noting that I basically can't wait for it. XD

        I thought you were going to mention something shit but Grimgar is probably one of the best anime I've seen in decades. It was also made by Square Enix, just in case you didn't know.

        Believe me dear, I know the feeling. I lost a lot of steadiness in my own hands, making my once pretty handwriting look very messy. Even my raspy rim shots are less crisp any more (drumming).

        But I second @Archeia about the exercises; try twirling a pencil between your fingers too.

        You use interpolation of none or nearest neighbour and scale it to whatever is required to be print size. Scale up in multiples of 100%. Easy and yes, does not look like a stretchy JPG.

        Oh. Would you be able to write out a synopsis for the one you're turning into a novel? You should still write it, even if it may not work. If not, maybe you should write it as a manga. Because you say you're more of a visual writer, then a manga adaptation like in the manga books is a really good idea.


        Usually, if you write out a synopsis of the plot for the novel, many ideas would then manifest as inspiration during work, school, game making etc. This is where you then write down what the inspiration is as it helps wonders.

        After which you put it on steam and it shows up in a curator list that steam thinks I want to follow (heck if I know why) entitled "Hella Yuri."


        Netflix, Steam and Spotify. Getting "you may like" suggestions wrong since the beginning.

        @taarna23 So unbelievably true. Netflix tonight "Because you watched Saving Private Ryan the other day, we think you'll also like Scary Movie 3 for some reason." How the heck did you draw that conclusion, Netflix?


           Steam's recommendations are usually worse, got to where I won't even look at those.

        Lol! I know, I finished watching Stranger Things again, and the resulting 3 suggestions at the end of it was just like... WTF Netflix? How are these even related?


        And Spotify, lol... When I tried it out for free (because music rolling around in head must be listened to or loss of sanity ensues)... Its like... Listening to Lilo and Stitch soundtrack, we see? How about we just queue up a Phantom of the Opera track next, without warning you. Still listening to Lilo and Stich after skipping that last one? How about we queue up Thriller next. These things are totally related, we promise.

      You know how in a game like Zelda you can pretty much figure out how much hearts a certain enemy will take off of you or how many slashes it takes for Link to kill them?


      Like, what would you call a system like that? I don't want to say "predictable combat" because it sounds insulting. I feel like there's a word or two I could use.

           Hearts life gauge system? It's really not all that different from a standard lifebar if you break it down, four hits from the weakest enemy equals one heart, you can have between 3 and 20ish hearts for a total of 12 to 80 hit-points with enemies being able to deal between 1 or 1/4 hearts (green knife soldier) and 20 or 5 hearts (fricken lightning bats) in damage.


           I would say the ease at determining how much damage link takes is due to the low numbers calculated more than anything else. It's much easier to see at a glance that 1 heart out of 20 is 5% of your health than say...856 damage to an hp pool of 17120. At the end of the day it's all simple mathematics, but by keeping the numbers small along with the visual cues of the hearts bar LOZ does a decent job of providing players with math that's simple enough and obscured enough that they might not actually realize they're doing it.

        Actually, some stuff (bats and snakes in LTTP) deal 1/8th of a heart in damage. There's just no way to display that. As you point out, it's not much different than a standard life bar, so I'm not sure your suggested name quite fits.

        It's not just about hearts, either. It's REALLY hard to explain, lol.

        @ALTERED STATE ? - You should use your effort on the second one.  It is a good story with a theme on how humans will attempt to do what they know is impossible.


        On that note: I really like the part where it described humans as beings of darkness who only reach for the light due to ones inward desire to posses what they do not have.


        ..only to have that light being extinguished when the main antagonist gets his hands on it.  The symbolism between this act and someone plucking (read: killing) a flower out of "love and respect" for nature is enough to make even Edgar Allan Poe jelly.



        Now everyone is going to squint themselves blind! MUHAHA

        @Dalph™ - You cannot judge ones work by the title alone.


        You need to read, think, analyze and live on the story to be worthy enough to judge anothers work.


        So squint on brother, squint on.
